Single issue election

The short and long term impact of leaving or remaining in the EU will be considerably greater than the impact of any of the policies of whichever political party wins power. Every constituency is effectively holding a mini referendum on EU membership. Any supporters of the Tories, labour and greens who believe the future of the country is better in the EU in this constituency, must hold their noses and vote libdem. You may never forgive them for being part of the coalition but you will never forgive yourself if your vote helps bring about the economic, social and political disaster that awaits us if we leave the EU.

You forgot that voting Lib-Dem would put Corbyn into Downing Street which would cause even more social and political disaster.

But leaving the EU will not be a disaster;It will give us the opportunity to be independent and forge ahead without a ball and chain around our ankles.
And don't forget, there was a democratic vote to LEAVE the EU in 2016.
The Liberal (no longer democratic) Party are now just a bunch of wreckers: the fourth party in the late Parliament and with no hope of forming a Government in the next. There are only TWO parties that can govern this country- Conservative or Labour.

Although, I have to agree with Nancy: living in a Corbyn state would be far worse than staying in the EU.

It's the single issue element they concerns me. Whoever wins can then bring in a raft of legislation that few people want just by promising to remain or exit. But really the whole charade is ludicrous; does anyone believe that the self confessed europhile Johnson would engineer a genuine Brexit? Does anyone believe anything he says? I hope not. It's obvious that if the political elite of Europe,which includes Britain ( if you've ever looked at a map) wants a super state, they'll get it even if it means Boris's faux brexit. Then we can go further into la la land and consider the situation of the conservatives ignoring the result of a general election and continuing in government because... well, people were happy with us ignoring the referendum, the precedent is set, let's ride the tide.

Sadly (to my mind) according to the opinion polls, it does appear that a large number of people do believe Johnson Tom. Are you really saying that he will not then take us out of the EU? Music to my ears Tom but I can't see it myself. Who are the 'political elite of Europe' if it doesn't include the prime minister anyway.
More importantly, why do I bother with unfounded claptrap like your posts? Please don't bother answering that. I know.

Germany and Italy were unified in the 19th century despite the opposition of much of their populations. Why will 'Europe' be any different? The bosses usually get what they want.

Don't believe the opinion polls too much. I sense Tory HQ are hoping for lots of anti-Semitism chat to keep their chances alive. Fortunately for them, many of their voters don't care much for fact checking and naunce, and won't care that Tories have a far worse track record in EVERY form of racism.

Iím inclined to vote Conservative, but even I thought Andrew Neil was a bit harsh on Corbyn tonight.

Perhaps it's for the best - we've got a climate hub and look what weather they're coming up with. Still, cold is the new warm if... more
