Poll predicts hung parliament after election - with SNP, Lib Dems gaining seats

  • Published on Sep 10, 2019
  • Early this morning, parliament closed for five weeks in scenes of chaos and fury. During the formal ceremony, angry opposition MPs sang in the chamber in protest and claimed the government was silencing their voices. Equally bitter on their side, Conservative MPs heckled the Speaker, who they consider to be biased against them.
    Boris Johnson insists that the best way of resolving the Brexit divisions is to hold a general election. But would that provide a clear solution?

    A lot of politicians better start looking for jobs Most of them know the people will vote them out. That’s why they don’t want an election.

    Their refusal of an election has never been "mysterious" they've illustrated each time that preventing a "no deal" takes priority, only THEN will they participate in a general election

    The whole context that the PM was lying to the Queen is a nonsense. It is all about Party Conferences. The PM argued that this time of year is when the Parties have their Conferences.
    Libdems Conference - 14-17 September 2019. Bournemouth.
    Labour Conference - 21-25 September 2019, Brighton.
    Conservative Conference - 29Sept - 2nd Oct. 2019. Manchester.
    As these Conferences are booked months in advance the PM is correct in stating that the Prorogation is the normal length of Prorogation with added Conference breaks.allowing for the Government to determine the Queens speech.

      There have been a number of different techniques used. It all depends on what factors are taken into account. Most polls are struggling to find leave voters and are therefore compensating in favour of the conservatives.

    If Labour wants any success in General Elections they will simply have to ditch Corbyn and his extremely left wing pals.

    So the northern working class leaver geniuses will actually vote tory 😂 I mean a tory government and a hard core no deal brexit will be wonderful for the deprived regions!

      @Darth Remainer I know 6 consultants and loads of registrars, 6 GP's and mot a single one of them in private has mentioned brexit. So I always wonder why people bring it up as this world ending concern. My partner works in a hospital and she hasn't even mentioned it at home. I hope you are wrong. Brexit will create new opportunities and seal off some old ones. Business will adapt as always. There are a lot of clever people in the UK I believe we will be fine.

      TeacherToolkitDemo so you presume all will be fine, well if a hard brexit causes a recession you might find your business is affected. Even in the unlikely case that you won’t be affected, let me understand you voted to leave, why?
      Well in my line of work, ie medical research, brexit is going to be disastrous. My partner is a doctor; they are already experiencing medicine shortages due to pharmaceutical market disruptions and stockpiling, and she has had to tell patients that their treatment including in one case radiotherapy, will be delayed.
      But hey like you say, what do you care? You’ll be unaffected

      @Darth Remainer yea fine. Will be same after brexit. With my line of work wont matter. Even a labour government wouldnt concern me too much. The world will keep turning.

    This poll is the best the wealthier interests can hope for. That’s why they are pushing it to the point of distortion. Labor will appeal to voters on more than this one issue. These social issues are being ignored in these biased polls. Have the election.

    Anyone who believes anything from Channel 4 political news nowadays must have little grip on reality. Biased is not an adequate word. Those involved should be ashamed of themselves: not journalists anymore, but apparatchiks. And my distrust and contempt for Jon Snow is so great that if he told me what the weather was I would not believe him until I had looked outside of the window.

    Mrs Teacher..you should know full well that Harold falling into Williams hands is NOT the reason for WILLIAMS claim. The Normans were descendants of the vikings. Edward the confessors blood line therefore ran through Harold Hardrada and William Duke of Normandy. HH was defeated at Stamford Bridge. William won at Hastings. But William had the better claim to be King of England by lineage and descendancy. Harold Godwinson ( arrow in the eye) had no link to the throne other than being Edwards supporter and getting a nod on edwards death bed.

    Can we just take a moment to appreciate how absurd and undemocratic our election system is? The Conservatives can lose a quarter of their vote and not lose a single seat. Regardless of your political alignment, everyone must surely admit that is an absurd statistic.

    Even before Theresa May's resignation when it became apparent Boris would succeed her, I knew Boris would be trouble for Tories and to himself. He thinks he will do business with Trump and hence he does not need European Union. Only time will tell. His abusive speech that 'Africa will beg them to come and colonize us again' is obvious the man does not have an ounce of diplomacy in his fabric. I think he should stick to what he does best. Eat curry and fart loud and long.

    they need an election now because after brexit the chaos will be that big that they will be accounted for it. When they have an election after Brexit they will lose dramatically. Thats why they want it now so they are at least for four years in power and have the time to try and clean up the mess.
