General Election in December

Well, we now have an election to deal with. Where do you think we will end up? I am guessing there will be less of us over 50’s around and more youngsters voting, so do you think this will make a difference?


Do you know many people who have changed the way they feel re Brexit last time? Or will you not vote or vote on domestic matters instead?

Thanks for voting!
I think the oldies are more prone to vote

Maybe, Wilf, there's a good few others like me who are patriotic towards this nation. That being the case, voting is a duty, don't you think?

Totally a duty Lionel. Its a democratic right and so many millions would love to be able to vote

I well remember reading Francis Chichester's biography The Lonely Sea and the Sky. Therein he said,' if one doesn't vote one loses the right to complain, until the next election.'

I do so love to complain about the government, don't you?

I'm not a political animal no, but more of an observer. But it does seem to me there are too many variables to call at this stage in proceedings. We need some runners humiliated, brought down or whatever to reduce the field.

I most certainly will be voting. I believe it's a duty and being quite patriotic I'll use my vote to reinforce my stance on Brexit, and give a hint of how I feel about the three party leaders.

You could say, I'll see through what was begun over three years ago.
