    May will win a much larger majority, and then claim that it shows how the country is 'coming together' after Brexit (despite our FPTP electoral system meaning that millions of votes are essentially worthless). Then she can push for whatever wacky Brexit deal her mental backbenchers and the Mail want, as well as full-blown Tory policies on everything else for the next five years.

    I am well prepared for my opinion of my countrymen to sink even lower than it already has as they vote against their interests yet again.

    Fuck the Tories for being pure cunts, fuck Labour for being a shitshow, and fuck the electoral system for foisting these two decrepit dinosaur parties on the UK electorate again and again.

    Hopefully people that voted Remain and Tory will vote for the Lib Dems in June.

    It seems very likely that the Tories will win easily but with Labour in such a mess the Lib Dems really need to take this opportunity to put out a strong and consistent message.

    Brexit will be the first thing the Tories demand of Tim Farron. And he'll give it to them. Nailed on.

    It was definitely a bit of a shock to the system to see the date after getting used to the US system of taking years over everything.

    I have no idea what the second paragraph of your post is about, but I hope I've addressed the first.

    ...no? If you hate Brexit, what do those 10 pledges offer you on that front? A better Brexit? Perhaps. Not hard versus the Tories. But still Brexit.

    But naturally quisling Lib Dems would renege on explicit promises, and Labour never do. If they had made such a promise. Which they haven't.

    People seem to be suddenly using the word 'quisling' like I'm meant to know what it means

    Look, Sparra, I don't know if you were told but the Real Fight Starts Now! Those aren't just empty words, you know.

    Nips any resistance to Brexit negotiations and the Scottish referendum in the bud. First remotely clever thing she has done as much as I hate it.

    I am, as you know, thick as large shits when it comes to politics, but reading about it, you'd need a unified approach to take the Tories out. So, is a coalition a thing that could be constructed of lib dem and labour? Yay? neigh?

    A whole 2 months to prepare for a general election. I can't wait to read the terrible manifestos consisting of 6-7 buzz words per page and having to suffer through the puerile campaigning.

    Hoping for first contact with Vulcan sometime soon.

    Ask anyone who got a university education any time in the past few years about Lib Dem promises and their value when it comes to electoral policies.

    I don't think you could 100% rule out then joining a coalition together, but it would be a real tough one to sort out, especially with Labour's switch over Europe.

    Tbh as well, I don't think the Labour party really has the mindset for such things. They can't even cope with puralism in their own party and just look at the way their supporters react to the LibDems having to give things up being part of their last coalition. They're almost more of a puritan dinosaur than the Tories in that respect.

    Anna Soubry is my (Tory) MP and she was strongly pro-Remain, then went on to advocating soft Brexit, so the choice isn't as clear cut as it might have been. But still, Never Trust Tory...

    Someone needs to make that "Not Tory" app that shows you how to do tactical voting in your constituency. It will probably still be a landslide though.

    I'm standing for the Eurogamer party. My plans are:

    1. PES for foreign secretary.
    2. Bowling to be declared illegal.
    3. Steam sales will be mandatory.
    4. The console war declared null and void, ZX Spectrum declared greatest gaming device ever.

    The SNP are more natural bedfellows for Labour. Gib Scottish Labour off, they're useless anyway.

    Sure. But that changes Labour's current promises, or lack thereof, and their current shambles, how?Labour are able to not promise something and that is taken as them promising it and anyway Lib Dems who do promise something are 100% unreliable.  Ok then.

    Of course, after all this, it would be hilarious if May couldn't actually get the two thirds vote to hold the election. I wonder if the Labour MPs will try to hold it off.

    You see, I was of the understanding that the SNP and Labour fucking hate each other.

    On the grounds that Labour MPs only have 8 weeks to work out Corbyn's current policies you might be on to something.
