I’m not so sure it does anymore. Remainers will point at total votes, Leavers will point at the biggest party. Everyone inbetween will roll their eyes and wish it would go away.

I mean, they turned a collapse for leave supporting parties and a surge for remain supporting parties into "People just want us to get on with delivering Brexit" so I don't really think the actual result matters when it comes to the message. The speeches/headlines are probably already written since they can twist any result into "BREXIT NOW!!!!!!1111"

According to that candidate we are looking at 30 years of economic pain from Brexit.

I’m looking forward to telling my 3 year old that it’ll all be fine by the time he’s 33. :lol: :fp:

What about older people. I'm 37 so will be over 70 by the time economy picks up. Under her view I'm looking a low pay and difficult (if not impossible) job searches if I find myself unemployment and then a shitty retirement. Why would I vote for that?

Amusement under late capitalism is the prolongation of work.

Younger people are already being screwed harder than older people. Brexit will hit them far harder as cuts to education combine with unemployment for their parents and then a downturn in the economy making employers less likely to want to train teenagers/people in their early 20s.

Of course our generation will suffer, but nothing like the children of now will as this gooseberry fool drags on for three more decades.

With climate collapse on our doorstep, thinking that we will be around in 30 years for that is... optimistic :lol:

Some information here on who is best to vote for from a Remain perspective:

https://www.remainvoter.com/

South West suggests a Lib Dem seat is safe and so the Greens are the best bet to try and get another. I was planning on voting Green anyway so that suits me!

It wants me to vote ChangeUK. :dread:
Don't think I can bring myself to do that, so it'll be Lib Dem or Green for me.

Same!

I'll be voting for the Glorious Greens.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

North East suggests Lib Dems which is who I already voted for.
The predicted result is still 2x Brexit Party and 1x Labour though :dread:

In Wales. I suppose I could vote Lib Dem if it really helped. Not sure there is much of a wind behind this website though, and I did want to vote Green to get their %age share up.

I'm in Germany this week and my flight back has been pushed back by 3 hours so I won't now get back in time to vote. And it's too late to get a proxy. Arse.

This remainvoter thing is super suspicious to me...

Vote for who you believe in. Theres no point tactically voting in a PR vote. I think its far better that Lib Dems get a whole bunch of votes to challenge the Brexit Party than having a load of parties get a small number of votes.

You're clearly making up systems now.
