I'm inclined to think the same.

I'm sure foggy will be along soon to tell us what's going to happen and why, though.

I see the PM has said that a snap general election will bring strong leadership for the Brexit talks, well she could be wrong, supposing there was a hung parliament, that would only lead to another general election and in the mean time absolutely zilch would have happened with the EU negotiations or the problems within the UK.
I honestly believe the parties will be a lot closer than anticipated and I do feel she has taken an enormous gamble.

This means absolutely nothing, remember Brexit and Trump.

I think it is a shrewd move. Nothing is going to happen on the brexit front until after the German election and this gives her a stronger hand at the negotiating table if she comes out with the expected large majority.

I suppose it was inevitable with all the shit about Brexit. Sadly this will see off Corbyn and the Blairites will rubbing their greasy palms. Cunts.

Which ones are they then? I absolutely think that the conservatives represent the average person in this country more than corbyn's Labour party does. It isn't the 30s: we don't all live in shanty housing and work down the pit anymore. The middle classes are generally sick and tired of Labour's pandering to the lowest common denominator.

All of the recent polling errors have been of a kind that under represents right of centre voters. A repeat of the same means an even bigger blue majority.

Basically as a country we are fucked it appears

edit: "no turning back" so we are leaving regardless of a general election

You're one of those... The sky was supposed to have fallen in already.

So, the options are a Tory landslide or the Lib Dems get enough anti-Brexit votes to cause a hung parliament?

Is there really that much anti brexit sentiment? Most general elections are won easily on less than 50% share of the vote. I genuinely don't know anyone (outside of the internet) who voted leave who would change their mind in a rerun of the referendum.

I'm not sure, people moan about everything. It's the British way, by Jove!

If anything, Lib Dems will probably just gain Labour votes.

Unlike most other general elections when the focus has been on foreign policy, defence and home grown issues, unlike this election that will be influenced possibly to a greater extent by Brexit.
My thinking is that many thousands of voters who were originally Labour supporters switched to UKIP in the referendum an now they appear to be a busted flush may well return to Labour, Corbyn or not.

Still think that Brexit was a complete shock to them and they haven't a clue how to go about it.

I doubt there is enough anti-Brexit sentiment to ensure a Lib Dem win.

Wasn't suggesting a Lib Dem win, but enough to cause a hung parliament.

It's almost as if they want to get an election out of the way before the consequences of Brexit start to become apparent. Either that or it could be because the CPS deadline to prosecute the Tories for electoral fraud is around the time of the election. Snides.
