Election Night

Post by Superewza »

And nobody is talking about it? To be honest i don't trust that Exit Poll at all, there's no way the Lib Dems have lost seats after how far they've come. Here's me hoping for a hung parliament involving them as long as they make a fairer voting system top of the agenda, as long as the Tory's don't sell the NHS (assuming they're part of it). Last time they were in they sold the Crown Jewels, British Gas/Electric, the railways, the waterboard, the oil companies and Lloyds. The latter wasn't even theirs to sell. What else is there so give to their paymasters?

An angry man came to my home asking why I wasn't registered to vote, he was condescending and made me fill in the forms, sat on my doorstep.

Just before the election I got a letter saying no one was registered at my address, still................

Maybe they heard I was going to vote conservative :)

2-0-0-0 to Labour. Large swings though. This should be interesting.

What? The conservatives aren't liberal in any way.

At least the greens got a seat, it's a start!

Hung parliament.

Well that was an interesting 24 hours.

Not exactly fair that 36% Tory, 29% Labour, 26% Liberal in votes turns into 47% Tory, 39% Labour, 9% Liberal in terms of seats. :roll:

And I still live in one of the safest Labour seats in England :lol:

Best thing about a Tory government? Probably the fact that eastenders wasn't on :D
