Default General Election

Has everyone who can still vote, registered?
Anyone got any ideas or opinions on who will get into No10?

I've got a couple of bets on but nothing major, bookies seem to think Conservatives almost without doubt, even favouring the majority, with next favourite a Labour minority, just ahead of Conservative minority.

There will be a Conservative government but whether it’ll have a majority and the size of that majority will depend heavily on tactical voting and Leave/Remain alliances being formed.

Farage has morphed into a cartoon buffoon at this point. I'm not sure what game he's playing. Or he's so cut off from reality?

My prediction for the GE is a safely guarded secret.

i actually hope he doesn’t lose too badly or else the remoaners will be asking to rerun the election along with the referendum. Takes me back to the days of playing Fergie time whenever Man Ure we’re behind at full time lol.

I'm sure the registration deadline is now or coming up quickly if you haven't already and can still vote.

Don't be a ****, vote.

It expired this morning 4am our time.

Boris to have a 50+ seat majority, Brexit party won't have an MP.

Ah shit, I knew it was around now. Thanks.

Odds as it stands:
Cons Majority - 2/5
Labour Minority - 11/2
Cons Minority - 11/2

Update on the figures:

Cons Majority - 2/5
Labour Minority - 5/1
Cons Minority - 10/1

So the Labour minority has come in slightly and cons minority drifted significantly. These are still the 3 favourite options, closely followed at 11s by Lab-SNP coalition.

Interesting. I knew Labour were gaining, but let's hope the voters turn out tomorrow and do the right thing.

And they're off, third GE in 5 years, I'll stick with my previous prediction, Boris with around a 50 majority, no Brexit Party MPs.

And if that happens, how long before grandpa quits?
