Is it going to happen on December 12th and who is worth voting for?

Discuss.

Labour will block it. I hope we get an election, I will vote for Boris. He is the best of a bad lot. He has been blocked at every turn by the turds of Westminister, Corbyn being king turd, mind you Burcow is a close second.

Totally agree.
Depending on your view of Brexit then I commend you vote for the Boris, otherwise for the notwinsome cow.
Getting bored with it now-as I'm sure the whole country is. Oh for a resolution so we can all move onwards.

Our Boris is engaging the time honoured political sport (at which he as a past master) i.e. blaming everyone else for his own mistakes. Whatever the EU decides about a possible extension of the date for leaving Europe, whether or not the House of Commons decides to go for a General Election - it will not be the fault of our Boris!!!

Only if a General Election is held and the Conservatives win will he then claim credit, if however the Conservatives lose then it will be the fault of the electorate for not believing Boris the Great.

Yes?

Labour like to squat inside parliament at the moment, it seems. They like having some form of control over everyone else (a classic socialist mindset) but no actual power. From what I can make out - they don't want a deal and they don't want no-deal. They don't want to leave the EU...but in their hearts, they do.

Will a General Election happen or not? Who knows... I certainly don't. My head is absolutely fried with the squabbles in the commons at the moment.

If there is to be one, I'd likely tactically vote for Boris - even though I no longer associate myself with the party which claim to be 'Conservative'. If it wasn't so crucial and Boris looked almost certain to win, I'd vote for the Brexit Party without a second thought.

It's at times like this, we need a modern-day Oliver Cromwell.

So Swinson and Blackford are making a big deal out of wanting an election on 9th December rather than 12th December.

I’ve run out of sarcasm.

I shall vote for Boris. The 'Deal' may not be everything I would like it to be, but it is a deal I can live with.

The thought of Corbyn scares me shitless, quite frankly.

And as for that screeching harridan who is the 'leader' of the Il Liberal Un Democrats, she is appaling!!!

Nigel would get my vote were I to be in a strong Labour area in the north, but I'm not, so therefore it is Boris for me.

If we are out by 31st October, Boris it is.
If we are not out by 31st October, Brexit Party it is.

The lady on the radio just said ‘General Erection’.

Brexit party! Surely that is a wasted vote and asking for more of the same hung parliament crap that we have seen in 2 earlier elections. I do not blame Boris for us not getting out by 31st October, I genuinely think he has tried to do the impossible given his minority Government position. May did not even try, she wasted 3 years. Corbyn is playing games knowing if we had an election he would be toast, so he is doing all he can to prevent it. He even said he was not supporting the deal before MPs had read it. Farage and the Brexit Party are more of a hindrance than a help for Brexit. They will never form a government and their votes lost from the Tories could put us back to another coalition Government, possible LabLib because the Libdems will pick up a lot from the remainers.

If too many people vote Brexit party we may not get Brexit and Corbyn might be powersharing with Swinson. God help us all.

I'm sorry, Jethro, but I dislike my Tory MP, he is a europhile, he is another Dominic Grieve in the making. It's best he goes.

You are unfortunately correct, Mr GPO Git. :x

Boris needs to deselect europhile MPs but a bit late now. If my MP was a europhile I think I would have to vote for him anyway, to hopefully secure it for Boris. He is the best of a bad lot but I think he will get us out if he had a working majority without it we are stuffed. Another hung parliament would drag this on for years with a real danger of us eventually staying locked into God knows what, under EU rule.

Anyone would think, if they relied on the British News media, that we are alone as a Country wanting to reinstate Sovereignty and independence from the E.U.

It is as if we are living in a political bubble where only our situation exists.

Given that nothing lasts forever, I wonder how much longer the E.U. will continue in its present form.?
