It’s vital that you don’t vote without consulting this website:

Well I took your advice on board, but the website didn't even ask my opinion on anything.

I entered my postcode and it just told me to vote Labour, which is strange as the Conservatives only won by 5k votes in my constituency in 2017, I know its only 1 vote but seems a risky strategy if I want the Conservatives to win?

So possibly checking this website isn't vital for everyone?

You might find it useful to consult this website before voting, if you're planning on voting tactically as it summarises what other tactical voting websites are suggesting:

I don't think its a game changer

lots of tactical voting in the south (possibly, though probably overstated on social where people are switched on to it) could get wiped out by losses in current Labour leave-voting heartland seats

Anything from Tory landslide to hung parliament is in the realm of possibility

Getting out the vote key, weather tomorrow could be a swing factor etc etc

Fair bit of rain/bad weather around.........who's that good for?  Students not leaving the pub?....older voters not going out?

Many of us older voters send them in via Royal Mail.

I think bad weather is more likely to see less younger people voting.

This article is mainly just bile though. Just a one sided rant against the referendum result and chuck in the tropes and ad hominem stuff about Brexit voters.

Brexit is divisive but mainly due to the fact that the people who lost the argument continue to blame everyone but themselves for why it happened

"Her sources" it seems....as I see twitter is kicking off on this. Laura might get her wrist slapped by the electoral commission?

I hadn't seen twitter about this, but it seemed a particularly dumb thing to tweet a day after her "sources" told her Matt Hancock's aide had been punched.

I want to run a small competition

Please post before polls close on Thursday to be eligible

Answer with one number, either

a) size of conservative majority or b) number of seats short of majority (and state which your answer is)

Nearest wins a £25 donation to a charity of their choice (will post screenshot)

In the event of a tie earliest guess wins



Anyway those that haven't can still have a crack at this

Put my money where your mouth is, or something like that.....

Tories one short.

As opposed to me on election night when I'll probably have 3 or 4 shorts, plus wine.

I said at start of campaign 25-35 majority.

I'll go for 26 majority.


Have you been offered a decent cash out on your 7/4 bet?   Smiley

I hadn’t looked but checked now and no cash out offered.
