Poll predicts hung parliament after election - with SNP, Lib Dems gaining seats

  • Published on Sep 10, 2019
  • Early this morning, parliament closed for five weeks in scenes of chaos and fury. During the formal ceremony, angry opposition MPs sang in the chamber in protest and claimed the government was silencing their voices. Equally bitter on their side, Conservative MPs heckled the Speaker, who they consider to be biased against them.
    Boris Johnson insists that the best way of resolving the Brexit divisions is to hold a general election. But would that provide a clear solution?

    This would be awful for the country but I genuinely want an election to happen that is terrible enough for all parties that not a single party has anywhere near a majority. So bad a government of national unity won’t even work.
    Then maybe due to the emergency a senior civil servant can be made Caretaker PM. Because there is no doubt in my mind that the civil service would do all of this with q
    10 times the competence of our idiot politicians.

    A lot of politicians better start looking for jobs Most of them know the people will vote them out. That’s why they don’t want an election.

    Their refusal of an election has never been "mysterious" they've illustrated each time that preventing a "no deal" takes priority, only THEN will they participate in a general election

    The whole context that the PM was lying to the Queen is a nonsense. It is all about Party Conferences. The PM argued that this time of year is when the Parties have their Conferences.
    Libdems Conference - 14-17 September 2019. Bournemouth.
    Labour Conference - 21-25 September 2019, Brighton.
    Conservative Conference - 29Sept - 2nd Oct. 2019. Manchester.
    As these Conferences are booked months in advance the PM is correct in stating that the Prorogation is the normal length of Prorogation with added Conference breaks.allowing for the Government to determine the Queens speech.

      There have been a number of different techniques used. It all depends on what factors are taken into account. Most polls are struggling to find leave voters and are therefore compensating in favour of the conservatives.

      @Darth Remainer well I can assure you the majority of British people are very welcoming and I am sorry you have had trouble with low class individuals. My apologies. I am a physicist so I like science as well 😬. I am very average however.

    • Darth Remainer

      TeacherToolkitDemo ok sorry the expression was a bit harsh, it’s just that emotions are running high, I’m Italian I have devoted all my working life to U.K. science and I have been insulted in the street. But I appreciate it’s due to a minority of idiots. All I’m saying is appreciate the huge contributions that EU nationals make to UK society. And what’s wrong with a village full of Slovaks 😂 we have parts of central Italy full of Brits but we don’t complain, we’re flattered they have chosen our country. I suggest that’s a healthier attitude. Well I guess at least we agree that U.K. governments have been serially inadequate. I remain convinced that brexit is a terrible idea, but I guess we’ll have to disagree on that. All the best

    • TeacherToolkitDemo

      @Darth Remainer I do think you have some valid points. Personally i dont care if we leave or stay in the Union. Things will work out in the end. Good luck to us all i guess.

      @Darth Remainer Erm I dont understand the spit on them comment. I am not nasty to anyone I've actually lived in 2 foreign countries and immersed myself i foreign culture. The countries I lived in have better immigration processes and standards than the UK. The EU system is a recipe for disaster. The hoops I jumped through to get my Visa for china were necessary and they do right by their own people making sure the people they let in are productive and not criminals. When my Visa expired i was allowed to stay in china for 2 weeks to travel and if I overstayed it's a 2 year prison sentence smashing Rocks 😂.

    This poll is the best the wealthier interests can hope for. That’s why they are pushing it to the point of distortion. Labor will appeal to voters on more than this one issue. These social issues are being ignored in these biased polls. Have the election.

    Anyone who believes anything from Channel 4 political news nowadays must have little grip on reality. Biased is not an adequate word. Those involved should be ashamed of themselves: not journalists anymore, but apparatchiks. And my distrust and contempt for Jon Snow is so great that if he told me what the weather was I would not believe him until I had looked outside of the window.

    Mrs Teacher..you should know full well that Harold falling into Williams hands is NOT the reason for WILLIAMS claim. The Normans were descendants of the vikings. Edward the confessors blood line therefore ran through Harold Hardrada and William Duke of Normandy. HH was defeated at Stamford Bridge. William won at Hastings. But William had the better claim to be King of England by lineage and descendancy. Harold Godwinson ( arrow in the eye) had no link to the throne other than being Edwards supporter and getting a nod on edwards death bed.

    Can we just take a moment to appreciate how absurd and undemocratic our election system is? The Conservatives can lose a quarter of their vote and not lose a single seat. Regardless of your political alignment, everyone must surely admit that is an absurd statistic.

    Even before Theresa May's resignation when it became apparent Boris would succeed her, I knew Boris would be trouble for Tories and to himself. He thinks he will do business with Trump and hence he does not need European Union. Only time will tell. His abusive speech that 'Africa will beg them to come and colonize us again' is obvious the man does not have an ounce of diplomacy in his fabric. I think he should stick to what he does best. Eat curry and fart loud and long.

    they need an election now because after brexit the chaos will be that big that they will be accounted for it. When they have an election after Brexit they will lose dramatically. Thats why they want it now so they are at least for four years in power and have the time to try and clean up the mess.

    What's the difference between a "Hung Parliament" and the current MPs in Parliament can only agree to disagree on every thing concerning Brexit, Deal or NO Deal. A few more extension granted by he EU through 2020 would end in the same "Agreement to Disagree" in the UK parliament.

    All these debates, talkings and arguments about Brexit what is going on today, should have been happening long before Brexit. Now obviously British people know much much more about Brexit risks and the consequences of it. Back ten they weren't. The second referendum would be a fair outcome for Britain. Cambridge Analytica must be sued for tampering with referendum results. Farage is on Putin's payroll. Just as all other anti-EU parties. Arron Banks needs to be investigated for his Russian links. His "Leave campaign" was funded by Russians. Americans investigate on Trump-Russia collusion and they getting there. Americans got Trump in the White House, the British got Brexit but doing nothing about it.

    Good old pleb Andrew Mitchell, he's fantasising that if he gets his Surrender Treaty through the Brexit Party will be neutralised. Dream on sunshine it ain't gonna happen - your Traitor Surrender Treaty is the EXACT OPPOSITE of leaving. In any case nobody will vote Tory because the Tories are proven habitual liars. They say they will leave during campaigns, then do everything to remain. Even if the Tories have a clean break Brexit and then have an election, they would take Britain straight back in to the EU without a referendum.
