I know it ain't gonna happen but I really, really want to see the national spit-take if Labour take it (or at least the Cons can't form a government). It'd be the perfect culmination of 2 (really 7, but let's be generous) years of the government literally fucking up every prediction of every election result, writing checks they can't cash, being held to it, wreaking havoc and then for some reason being rewarded for it anyway at every turn.
I think I'll skip it. My town is always solid Labour, so don't think my vote will make a difference. Amazing to see the Tory lead cut to single figures in the polls, can only pray it translates at the ballot box.The early election is looking like it was probably due to fiddled campaign spending, no? If the police had really got their act together Cameron's last election win would've been... rescinded? Reversed? Revoked?
Well, that went about as well as could be expected.The Norn Irn UDA possibly in the mix to give the Tory scum a slim majority: and Corbyn was supposed to be the terrorist sympathiser. Hah.
In case we thought there weren't any bigger creeps than the conservatives, a couple interesting things about the DUP -
- The UVF (I think it was this acronym?) a currently active terrorist organization, literally murdered a dude in front of his 3 year old in a supermarket parking lot like last week, and DUP leader Arlene Foster met with their head for a social visit less than 48 hours after the murder and didn't have anything to say about it...
A party in love with a guy so murderous that the Combined Loyalist Military Command ordered him to leave NI in 72 hours or be killed because he was jeapordizing the peace process - despite him being on their side.
Then there's the problem of militant loyalists holding the UK government to ransom possibly being a violation of the Good Friday agreement... see if they can't fuck around and get the trifecta of leaving the EU, losing Scotland and NI, and hell let's throw in the freebie of kick-starting a new Troubles.
So surprising no one, May, who tweeted during the election that a six-seat loss would mean Corbyn would be PM and then lost more than double that, is clinging to power through just about the filthiest means possible. If there's one good thing to come from this (aside from a new election) I hope this teaches all the recently-engaged or energized voters than politics is about taking power, not asking for it, not winning the moral battle or the sorkin-esque rhetorical epée shit, not "both sides do it"-ing, but having an ideology and a program to execute it and doing it even if it's dirty, because that sure as shit is what the right wing has known how to do for decades.

I see Kevin De Bruyne has gone for a wee while his coffee cools.
