Rain Dog BS: UK General election December 12 2019 (927* d) RE: BS: UK General election December 12 2019 16 Dec 19

In response to peteaberdeen's post

There is quite a lot of sweeping generalisations on here about most things. Having just googled the information, would I be right in saying that it appears there are only about 1 million or so voters who belong to any political party? The majority of people who vote are not members of any party.

I would agree with the statement 'no voters' can be categorised so narrowly. Unfortunately some of the people who contribute here seem to think that they voted correctly and anyone who voted differently was stupid/deluded/brainwashed etc

I would also ask if people genuinely thought Labour could win the election? The best I thought could happen is that it would be a hung parliament with all that would entail for the next 5 years.

I live in the South East where people voted approx. 2 to 1 in favour of leaving in the referendum. In my constituency, Dover, the Tories increased their majority. I voted Labour but cannot say I was surprised by the fact that they did not win the seat.

The one surprise for me was the fact that Labour retained Canterbury, in fact they increased their majority slightly.

Now we have to wait and see what the coming years bring us.
