    Have to laugh at the overexcitable lefties on twitter creaming their pants about HUGE polling queues full of young people. A) The real world are at work b) they’re mainly posting from labour strongholds where any extra votes will mean absolutely nothing.

    I think that is obvious but from your comments generally I can not imagine you ever liked contributing to have a kinder fairer society so are quite hard core Tory.
    Not saying a vote for Corbyn gets that btw

    I may have been mistaken and it wasn’t you

    I've only ever voted Conservative twice before in my life. I'm certainly not a hardcore Tory. I definitely don't think everyone not voting for Corbyn means they don't want a society that is kinder or fairer.

    Did you vote in 2010, 2015 or 2017? I assume you were too young to vote in the 80s and 92.

    Some people think they wouldn't be able to do much damage in five years. I don't agree.

    If you think we will not be in serious trouble if we wake up with Johnson as PM with a working majority tomorrow you really haven’t been paying attention over the last decade.

    To be fair, i would say you have probably been the most vocal person on this thread and most of your posts are trying to encourage people to vote Tory. Whatever you've been before, you're certainly one of those banging the drum loudest for the conservatives now.

    Absolutely. I want people to vote for the conservatives at this election or at least not for Corbyn. I've hardly tried to hide that but I'm not a Conservative supporter in the sense that I'll necessarily vote for them at the next election.

    I voted Greens in 2001, Lib Dems in 2005 and I’m not sure in 2010, although I do remember being amused at the rudimentary village-hall nature of the process.

    Since I started to take a genuine interest in politics around the time that Blair stepped down and actually bothered to go and vote, I have floated between Lib-Dems, Green and Labour.

    I usually vote Green in local council elections, as the current Labour council in Sheffield has acted appallingly in recent years, especially in the way it has dealt with the tree protests. I also voted Green in the EU elections in May, and helped to get our former mayor Magid elected thanks to proportional voting.

    I now live in a safe Labour stronghold, so a vote for anyone else in a GE under our ridiculous FPTP system is completely wasted.

    I initially thought that the Tory's will get 340-350 seats. Now I believe it will be 365+

    Turns out we can "spoil" our ballot paper, not "soil" it, as I was lead to believe.

    This is my sixteenth General Election and over the decades I have seen both main parties take it in turns to run the country. There has even been a coalition for a few years. The end result? Britain has prospered. True, like watching the Saints, there has been some tough times but overall there has been a massive improvement in just about everything (maybe not in education but that is more due to teaching methods than politics). Therefore I’m not too worried about who wins or losses today. Whoever comes in will mess some things up but will get a few things right and in a few years time we will do it all again. Hopefully I shall still be around for my seventeenth.

    I agree with most of this, but all too often we’re too busy feeding hungry children or finding their family housing for the evening to actually worry about teaching them!

    Hoping for a hung parliament but I expect it will be a Tory majority of about 15.

    No, it is everything to do with politics. Only the NHS comes close to the level of incompetent meddling by ministers who really should leave well alone.

    Tory majority in single digits or a hung parliament. I think it’ll be closer then many people think.

    Wouldn’t pay much attention to odds, they move based on money placed rather than inside info.

    I think it’ll be close but a single digit con majority.

    My polling station was ever so quiet when I was in to vote, albeit it was only just coming up to 5 o’clock. Hopefully it’s not a sign of a low turnout.

    Hung Parliament (Tory largest party)

    Remain wins referendum (Trousers digs out forum post from 3 years ago declaring that Brexit would never happen)

    Johnson resigns as PM

    Hung parliament with labour majority. My gut feel.

    Possibly the single worse thing to happen to this country since the blitz.

    It's exactly this. For me there is no contest. There will be no recovery for a generation if corbyn gets in. The far left have zero place in government, I'm urging everyone I know to vote tactically and limit labour's power in parliment. Badly need someone else to step up as an electable opposition next term however, and this current labour party need to swiftly dissappear over the horizon.

    Just got back from voting. My daughter-in-law is one of the bods checking polling cards. She’s only done 2 elections, this one & Europeans, but the other 2 bods have been doing it for years. Had a quick chat with her & she claimed they told her they were amazed at the turnout. Nearly as big as the referendum, in their opinion. It’s one polling station in a absolutely nailed on Tory safe seat, but I found that interesting. Gave me more confidence that the people are turning out to drain the swamp. Couldn’t chat too long as a Labour supporter was looking after my dog and I was worried he’d give him away to some homeless tramp.

    Anyway, in the duckhunter household it’s a Tory whitewash , as me & my lad voted sensibly. My daughter, “couldn’t be arsed” (her words), so that’s one leftie less, and the snap dragon is asleep in the chair, so unless I wake her up, it’s another lost leftie vote. ......

    If, as you claim, it is a 'nailed on Tory seat', then as 'lefties' their votes are pretty much pointless anyway.
