MPs are always scared of voting against an election as it can be used against them. Rivals will say that they were trying to block democracy or they are running scared of losing their seat etc..

There's only so much failure one man can withstand I suppose. What what this be, number eight? Leave voters were happy to elect him as MEP purely because as an anti-European his sole job in the EU parliament was to be as offensive and useless as possible; which he excels at.

I don't know what Sean O'Grady is smoking but it's damned strong stuff,

The truth is that if you want a soft Brexit, you need to vote for Theresa May
It’s not the rest of the country who May wants control over, but the strident backbenchers who want a super-hard Brexit and would destroy her government if they had the chance. She obviously can’t tell us the truth about that, so she has to go on about mandates and negotiations

I don't believe though because may is an evil hateful heartless banana split.

That's the thing, I'll bet there is going to be some proper evil gooseberry fool in the Tory manifesto that will be ignored during election because of Brexit hogging the debate.

And the Tory Manifesto isn't coming for another fortnight, leaving barely 3-4 weeks for it to be analysed/digested before the country goes to the polls.

I did it, my top two

59% Tory
58% SNP

Couldn't be anymore contradictory :lol:

Explains why I'm always conflicted on political points of view. I also kept the how important is this to you in the middle on all the questions as i couldn't be bothered with thinking too much.

77% Labour
67% Lib Dem

It'll take a hell of a lot of work from Labour and Corbyn this campaign for me to go along with that.

It says I'm strongly left wing.

Mine:

70% Labour
68% Liberal Democrats
55% SNP
55% Green
48% Plaid Cymru
42% Conservatives
37% UKIP
36% Sinn Fein
24% DUP
21% BNP

"Your political beliefs would be considered moderately Left-Wing on an ideological scale, meaning you tend to support policies that promote social and economic equality."

Makes sense to me. I vote Alliance here in Northern Ireland (no Labour or Liberal Democrats candidates), but they have a lot in common with the Lib Dems. The two most popular Northern Irish parties are in my bottom 3 with the BNP, typical :P
