I honestly, genuinely cannot fathom why anyone would vote Tory, but in particular I really cannot believe people actually vote for that fucking odious little creep Mundell. 


Self hatred mainly.

Why though? Don't they get shitloads of grants from the EU? Presumably cheap labour from abroad helps them also.

I think a lot of it is tied into centuries old deference among farmers and fishermen to landowners. It's a theme that crops up a lot in Scottish literature like The Silver Darlings or Consider the Lilies.

As I understand it a lot of farmers are tenants and the CAP payment goes to the landowner (there's a magnificent clip I can't find just now of Andy Wightman asking a Tory MSP who was complaining about late CAP payments for his constituents if he himself had had his £70000 payments on time or not) so I suppose a lot of them don't enjoy the status quo and have through some twisted logic decided to try to get in with the landowning class for some future benefit.

False equivalence, as everyone knows.

 

 

You all must have some sort of secret you are keeping from me then cause I can't see how. When challenged on it Sturgeon referenced Ireland and said the EU all had their back. Try telling that to anyone there who will be affected by a Brexit hard border being imposed on it against its will. Their premier has said it will be an economic disaster for Ireland but the EU negotiators have refused to listen

You are either a proper Tory, or you are a bootlicker.

Since proper tories are very small in number, you can safely assume anyone who votes tory is a bootlicker.

Theres probably 1000 Smithers to every 1 Monty Burns in this country. Pathetic.

It's sad but the "Rangers" factor also comes into play in this country.........

Is the saviour, the man of the people. The stupid fuckers are lapping it up. They're in for a shock. Those of us old enough to remember what the Tories did to the working class in the 1980s know what's in store and it's not good. Everyone needs to stay healthy and employed or you're fucked

"What the Torirs did to the working class."

Aye like Right To Buy; home ownership; shares being opened up for all to invest in; improved service and investment in telecoms; competition opened up in utilities; an end to Trade Unionist bullying and forcing staff to lose wages with silly strikes and the blackballing of staff who didn't strike with them. 

Aye they Tories were right fucking b*****ds says the w****r who gets nostalgic for power cuts in cold dark winters and the three day week.

It's a cross next to your least favourite candidate, right? Massive 'X' next to the Tory candidate from me this morning in Aberdeen South. Just hoping enough folk will do the same!

What the Tories did in the 80s
Proportion of people living below the poverty line increased from 13% to 43%
Child poverty doubled
Increased the gap from the top 10% of the population to the bottom 10% from 5 times to 10 times as much
Just a few examples of what the Tories did to the working class people in our country. But it's ok because some people could buy their house. Oh and no more were allowed to be built with the proceeds, thereby fucking the next generation.
Scum of the earth

Selling off the social housing that resulted in rents more than doubling relative to average earnings.  40% of these 'right to buy' homes are now privately rented out, with £22m being spent just so that local authorities can rent them back for temporary housing in order to soften the resultant housing crisis.

But as long as those that could afford it can feel better about having an asset at the expense of the folk freezing this winter, brilliant stuff.

Just been down to my Glasgow polling station to vote for the SNP. Busier than I remember previous elections; only one Labour guy on the door handing out leaflets. Who goes to vote, gets a leaflet at the door go in and that's what makes their mind up?
Queues at polling stations across London and urban areas.

From the pictures it is predominantly young voters.

Could be an interesting night.

Had a queue at my polling station. First time that has happened for me and that includes the 2014 Referendum.

No such thing as child poverty, it's the parents that are poor, the child does not influence how much money comes into the household.

I had to wait behind one, although I was more perplexed that there was a queue with elderly folk waiting for the wheelchair lift.  Gives me (probably false) hope that the elderly postal votes won't be as high than one might think.  🙏
