Official general election thread


#608

Ive had to turn it off, too painful. (1 star out of 5)


#609

Theresa May too shit scared to abandon one of the stupidest pledges ever


#610

The rating system is rigged.


#611

Haven't been online much today, but I heard a rumbling somewhere or other this morning that she's planning to commit to a hard EU border, in which case it's a defendable stupid pledge.


#612

Farage says he's not going to stand because it'd be too easy, or something.


#613


#614

said he'd rather stay in strasbourg. some brexiter!


#615

'I said, "I'm not interested, I'm making shitloads out of computers."'


#616

#617

This is great fun (love any online quiz tbf):

Take that, Theresa!


#618

Is the Unite election result announced today?


#619

The result is announced next week (28th). Polls closed yesterday, and Coyne was suspended for bringing the union into disrepute, too.


#620

Turns out all of you bastards were right!!


#621

Do we have any more on the Coyne suspension yet? I've heard it was for Data Protection breaches, for contacting Members off unauthorised lists etc.

Obviously don't know the extent of it, but I doubt that'll go down well if so. Data Protection breaches when it comes to this sort of stuff are so regular they're almost mandatory. Be like Chelsea not winning the league because the FA void all of their results for shirt-tugging.


#622

Yeah, the reporting seems to say that it was for accessing and using Labour party membership lists.

His repeated insulting of the membership and slagging off of the union in the press probably hasn't helped, either.


#623

Just like Momentum did to me then. Obviously he's been caught and, by the book, can't knock him being suspended I suppose but if every DP breach resulted in suspension then politics would LITERALLY grind to a halt.


#624

tbh the new GDPR regulations coming in next year will probably make politics grind to a halt in and of themselves. They are very harsh to say the least.


#625

It was honestly hard to listen to


#626

No vote, but in a very safe Labour seat as well (12,700 majority)


#627

I really like her but it annoyed me that she wasn't prepared AT ALL
