    Quite interested to see how these polls change when data comes out from post conservative manifesto launch. Dementia tax, lack of costing and social care policy seem to be hugely unpopular so I'm hoping shifts move closer to Labour. Seems a strong presence from under 25s could swing this

    Not sure about having a separate thread for this? Don't want to be too judgmental but feel like a lot of American posters won't open it up regularly and it will just make the General Politics Discussion thread even more of an American politics bubble which is a shame.

    Imagine the backlash if any other politician did anything like this. I have a special level of hatred reserved for Boris and his brazen disregard for anything other than his own interests disguised as incompetence.

    This Yank would rather y'all just keep posting in the main thread, but know that I am following this one and will lurk and appreciate the UK/Europe posts wherever they are.

    So have Wolf Alice and a good portion of the grime community. Come to think of it I can't think of any pro-tory musicians aside from Morrissey.

    Fucking hope for a miracle and he wins and I'm proved completely wrong. Opinion polls seem to be slowly turning but not sure if it's fast enough. Bit of leafletting tomorrow for me.

    To be fair, if the conservative voter intention as is right now tracks directly to seat percentage (I know it doesn't but bare with me) we're still headed for a hung parliament. Labour doesn't necessarily have to gain much more to get a win, the conservatives just have to lose. And I can see that happening more given the backlash to the dementia tax.

    Conservatives got 37% last election and they're polling at 44% now....we're some way off a hung parliament as far as I am aware.

    Well it already IS an American politics bubble, and any time non-American stuff is there it kinda gets glossed over and not discussed anyway. If nobody wanted to post in here they wouldn't have to, I'm not forcing anyone. I can just close it if you want. I don't like how every single topic regarding politics has just been moved there. Even racism, sexism, and LGBT which we have separate threads for, aren't really used anymore. And when so many people feel the need to make 5 or 6 posts in a row for separate tweets (which I really hate), it's even harder to go through that thread.

    I feel like even if it doesn't get discussed at least it gets seen, which is better than nothing! And I think a UK and Europe thread makes as much sense as lumping together a USA and South America thread haha. I reckon let's keep it all together but if others think differently, happy to be outvoted.

    yeah I know, it's just that there aren't that many people from Europe in the first place. if the forum were more active and more people posted here it would be a UK thread. idk
