Forthcoming General Election

Postby Tom fod » Sat Jun 03, 2017 9:54 am

You're all very well behaved on this forum so I'm going to set myself a challenge and ask what people think will happen next week and what this might mean for us all?

When the election was first called, it seemed like a Conservative landslide victory was inevitable. I still think that the Tories will win, but it won't be the clean sweep that Mrs May might have been expecting.

Mr Corbyn has certainly made himself a good deal more credible in the eyes of the electorate with his performances in the TV debates. Mrs May has, by contrast, floundered when questioned, refused to debate with the other party leaders and undermined her own credibility. That said, I don't think that Mr Corbyn will be able to gain the necessary ground to pose a credible threat to the Tories.

Even if (as some polls predict) we are faced with a hung parliament, I can't see Labour forming a coalition government (I believe that Labour have ruled out a coalition with the SNP).

Well a hung parliament it was. Was completely unable to decide as tbh politicians increasingly seem to promise all sorts but are short on the detail of how they will deliver! Meh!
