UK General Election: When's Voting Gonna Open?



It's general election time again, as Britain goes to the polls, for the third time in 3 years ...

Only a couple of weeks ago, it was an absolute certainty that it would be a landslide for Theresa May. But the game has changed significantly and this could now be an upset for the Tories of a Donald Trump magnitude, when Hillary Clinton was assured of winning the race to the White House.

The choices are simple:

Conservative, offering nothing in their manifesto and in fact taking some things away because at the time of the Manifesto they were absolutely sure they were going to win... but Wooden-top, Ms May will take us out of the EU quickly, or so she says. However with a reduced majority, that is not much of a mandate is it?

Labour, not a chance of winning.. or so everyone thought until a few weeks ago; so their manifesto offers free this and that, a cash giveaway bonanza, tax the working to pay for the bone idle. Not a prayer of winning, so the promises they made, make no odds that there is no cash to do any of this.  Will take us out of EU in a slow protracted way a bit like an unpleasant break-up with an old girl friend.  And yet, now they might win after all!  So start thinking about if you want your free cash. Tens or twentys?

Liberal, will keep us in the EU no matter how bad they treat us and will have another referendum.. or as many as it takes until people change their minds, but will sell out all their principals if it is a hung parliament.  Anything to get back into Number 10.

SNP.  We tuned out from Nicola Sturgeon's screeching long ago. But they have have lost a lot of popularity where Labour has gained.

Results start pouring in around midnight, with a clear winner before 2am UK time.  Come to the hub for a political debate.  Have your say but keep yourself nice!  ... but first Get out and vote.  Voting is open from 7am to 10pm.

Good luck on whoever you choose, they're all a bit naff this time around!
