    Well..., well..., well...

    She better “Re-focus”...

    Her lead today has shrunk to ~6%..., and 69% of the 18 to 24-years-old Engrishmen would opt to elect Jeremy Corbyn to 10 Downing Street, the latest poll has shown....

    Vote Corbyn...
    He's our man...!
    (Endorsed by this humble Patagonian dweller... ;-)))

    You're wasting your time as usual. Residents of Islington North are most unlikely to be reading MercoPress and they're the only ones who can vote Corbyn. The rest of us can only not vote for Corbyn.

    Cmdr McDod...

    Islington North..., huhhhhhh...?

    Didn't know that ~ 40% of the Engrish voters lived in Islington North...!

    Anyhow, I'm not aiming at you auld ones, I'm aiming at the youngsters in here like Mr. DemonTree...

    His generation may vote Labour or they may vote “Tactical”... whatever seves the cause best...;-)

    Pip..., pip...

    I'm not in the 18-24 group, I'm over 30! A lot of people that age are shortsighted idiots who don't bother voting because they don't like any of the parties. If Corbyn can get them out to vote it would be something, but if he loses as expected they'll probably just sink back into apathy.

    And there's really no point me voting at all under this stupid first-past-the-post system; I live in a seat so safe it has never once changed hands since it was created.

    Mr. DemonTree...

    I know your age group..., lad...

    From the same article I linked in me first comment...:
    《“Meanwhile, 44 per cent of 25-to 49-year-olds favoured Labour, compared to 34 per cent who would vote Tory. ”》

    Stop whinging..., join the party... and enjoy todays news... :-)))

    Mr. Voice...

    Yougov wasn't sooooo far off..., if memory serves me right...

    The betting market was far wronger with odds on Brexit as long as 5:1...

    Yeah, the polls had Brexit too close to call and the result was very close. But they were predicting the last election would be a hung parliament and we ended up with a Tory majority, so I'm not inclined to trust these polls.

    I still haven't decided who to vote for. If it was worth voting tactically then I would do it, but all I can do is show support for a party so I may as well pick who I really prefer.
