New thread.

General election 12th December 2019. Results out on Friday 13th. Unlucky day for some.

So this election is unusual in that it will focus primarily on Brexit and referendums with domestic issues tagged alongside, for some parties.

Thanks for the new thread. I deliberately stayed out of the aggro of the last one.

Cheers place.

Place marking on place's new thread!

I try to "grey rock" the aggro but I'm weak and can't help jumping in!

Several times bitten, finally shy. Or am I wink

For once, both boys to mark my place wink

I did my best to engage too directly in the more heated and personal exchanges.

Feelings are running high. sad A lot is at stake sad

Thanks placemats 💐

Crikey, these threads will probably move like greased lightning until at least Friday the 13th ....

Who said they were doing a 12 / 13 Dec overnight thread, btw ?

i always feel dirty for saying anything. and dirty for not saying anything.

"we have more in common than what divides us" and all that. x

I'm working and long & late shift on 12th - probably for the bestto be totally distracted

Mistigri Sun 03-Nov-19 18:10:06

I didn't think it was especially aggressive. Think it's fine to disagree.

Anyway thank you placemats, long may these threads continue.

Amazing tweet:

I've booked the 13th off, so will be doing my best for an all nighter!

prettybird Sun 03-Nov-19 18:11:12

I liked the Westminsterenders: Gunpowder, Treason and Plot suggestion for a new thread title from Mockers on the interim thread. Nice and topical - but there again, the thread may well have filled up by tomorrow so it can still be used on the appropriate day grin

Get a postal vote squid

And thank you for working such long hours, I've done many a 12 hour shift myself. Rotas are always changing!

Most excellent Squid

It's always hand to know that the postal vote is an option. However it must be done by November 25th.

I'm a bit squeamish about reference to Guy Fawkes and attempts at blowing up Parliament just at the moment. It doesn't feel as funny or historical these days with some of the anti Parliament crap Brexiteers are coming out with.
I know I need to lighten up. hmmsmileconfused
