Official general election day thread


#1

#2

No, I’m more triggered about the likely result.


#3

Still having trouble as to whether I should vote tactically or vote for the party I actually want.


#4

Can’t decide whether to stay up tonight. Either I risk missing the very slim chance of a shock result…or I stay up until I’m bleary eyed, watching TM’s smug stupid face and then feel like shit tomorrow.


#5

What’s going on in your constituency? Do you have the opportunity to help prevent a Tory getting in/remaining?


#6

Postal vote a while ago, it feels strange not doing it in person. Got 2 friends who both work for the Labour Party who predict they will lose seats today. I hope they’re wrong.


#7

have voted already. went tactical, don’t really like it but fuck the Tories.


#8

I’m not a fan of this Corbyn led Labour party at all. My MP is a Tory Brexit-er that also voted against same sex marriage. The constituency I’m in is either Tory or Labour. Grudgingly I’ll definitely be voting Labour but with no enthusiasm for doing so.


#9

Taking the view at this election that voting tactically (anti-Tory) is most important. That’s a shame, but it’s what I’m resigned to right now.


#10

Glasgow NE so maybe a tiny chance non-indie ppl go for the Tory vote.

Can’t help but feel my labour vote would be wasted. Think I know what to do !


#11

I’m generally an optimist but this is going to be completely grim.

I wonder how many of the young voters that the campaign has engaged will be put off politics for life by the result.


#12

Really? Tory got around 5% in the last 2 elections.


#13

oh fuck oh fuck oh fuck

how are you?


#14

Tories right now:


#15

Done a vote. Reckon Labour are on for a landslide victory if my polling station is anything to go by! (One person (me) voting Labour. Can’t argue with 100%)


#16

:x: (fuck the character limit)


#17

The evil empire have done their work and a billion comic readers will do as they’re told and vote out of fear (apologies to readers of actual comics- you’re all good eggs). Tomorrow is the beginning of the same turgid miserable shit we’ve been spoon fed for the last forever, but just like when I buy a lottery ticket, a tiny part of me will be holding out hope when I cast my vote later. Should get it in early to maximise that time before reality dawns.

Woo, I’m upbeat today! Bring it on.


#18

Really wouldn’t bother mate, for your own sanity.


#19

Wish my polling station wasn’t right next to the co-op with all their special offers on tasty, tasty, refreshing, [word] alcohol. That’s going to be the second willpower test of the morning.

(Genuinely can’t remember the word for when you forget stuff) :sweat_smile:


#20

You know what, I can’t think of one to go in that sentence neatly either. TORY MIND CONTROL.
