    I'm not sure if this new thread every couple of days is warranted? :confused:

    Anyway, I've just watched QT on iPlayer and this situation with the government persuading candidates not to stand against them; is that legal?

    Personally I'd go for option two, have enough staff so both a constant flow of heart attack patients and people with broken legs can get seen in a reasonable time.

    How many BXP stood down at the last minute yesterday (on top of the ~317 from the other day)?

    Every couple of days? It's every 2 weeks.

    Still lib Dems. The Labour offer is getting steadily worse, with a whole raft of policies that absolutely require brexit to deliver.

    Still won't stop some people advocating that liberal remainers have to vote for the racist Authoritarian Brexiteer though.

    I hadn't noticed, I've just noticed it happen a couple of times now. Is it a restriction with the poll or something?

    I think it's about testing voting intentions over time. Having a poll back when parliament was dissolved is interesting, but what's much more interesting is seeing the opinion change over time based first on media performance and then the release of manifestos.

    You mean more information becomes available and therefore people are likely to change their minds? :eek:

    Labour and conservatives continue to discredit themselves, these spending pledges are getting ridiculous now. Conservatives have had 10 years of failed promises now, why anyone would believe them this time is beyond me and voting for a govt led by people like Corbyn and Abbot is inconceivable.

    That was my working theory in 2016, I'm reliably informed by people with special interests however that this is definitely not the case, I'm compelled to take their viewpoint as gospel because, and I quote "sovereignty".

    I'm not sure voting every two weeks is very democratic.

    Lib Dem, the three strategic voting websites recommend Lib Dem so that's what I'm going for. I'm not sure they fit my requirements on a national level but the candidate is well educated with a background in strategic consultancy linked to both leadership and green energy so on a candidate level he aligns quite well with what I want to see.

    Still Lib Dem.

    I’ve just seen the Statement of Persons Nominated for my constituency and we have:

    Conservative
    Labour
    Lib Dem
    Green

    Nothing like splitting the remain vote… not that it really matters as the previous Con MP had a majority of over 26,000…

    He’s one of the moderates who is standing down, the woman who’s replacing him has been parachuted in from my old constituency… just when I thought I’d seen the back of her. :rolleyes:

    I'm seeing this a lot, and I keep asking myself when we decided not to have an election and have a referendum instead?

    I voted in the last poll to spoil my ballot, and I'm sticking to that for this one too. I think it's disgusting how this election is being engineered to be a second EU referendum. People are being asked to vote on their choice of government, but that vote is being narrowed by choice based on the Brexit policy of individual parties.

    Creating "pacts" with other parties in order to narrow the choice is bad enough, but the allegations of threats and bribes from the Tories is outrageous. Again I ask, in all seriousness, is that even legal?

    Very sore. :p

    To make matters worse I’m currently sitting in the dentist waiting room about to undergo a two hour appointment. Those beers were a definite mistake.
