A total of 650 Westminster MPs will be elected, with about 46.9 million people registered to vote. That is up from the last general election, in 2015, when there were 46.4 million registered voters.

    Article says...:
    The weather forecast is for some rain in south-west England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales on Thursday, with south-east England remaining cloudy and dry....

    I say...:
    Perfect British weather to catch a cold...!
    I would recommend all them between 65 to 100 to stay at home...
    Unless, of course, you have something urgent to do outside..., like voting for Jeremy...
    Good election day everybody.........................................................., and let's the best male win...;-)

    Wishful 'think'ing on your behalf.

    Its actually more likely that all the 'young' ones will take one look at the weather and then curl back up under the covers of their beds, rather than drag themselves to the polls.

    However time will tell.

    BBC exit poll has Conservatives as largest party but eight seats short of a majority.

    Times like this I tend to think of the derivation of the word: poli- meaning many -ticks meaning blood sucking parasites.

    I'm sure everything will become clear by the morning...

    As I predicted when everyone was suggesting a landslide months ago, I said the UK was heading for it's second disastrous vote result in as many years. Gosh don't tell me I was right again...

    Seems the Brits are starting to like this game of national self-destruction.

    What a clusterfeik.

    The question is why is this piece appearing in Mercopenguin, a propaganda organ supposedly devoted to America, South America and the “South Atlantic”?
