You should report that to the electoral commission - the people manning the stations are supposed to be entirely neutral - and that wasn't!

So Farage has been on every media outlet claiming that democracy is central to his campaign but hasn't once mentioned people being denied a vote in these elections?


Sounds about right.

The worst bit is that your name is on the list with but with a big line through it and she got turfed out yesterday and told to ring council who were no ******* help whatsoever.

She has been pretty sanguine about the whole referendum campaign (i.e. constant message that everything thatís shit about the country is your fault and you are a burden on us) and result, having to apply for settled status etc. but was genuinely upset yesterday.

Iím ******* fuming and a complaint has been made to electoral commission.

For the record Brexit can also go **** itself to death with a rusty bayonet.
This is outrageous.And a really dangerous precedent.

Interesting in the poll above that the two parties in the lead are the liberals and greens. Will that be the outcome or is that just the fact that the political sections of the BBS are mainly used by the socio demographics who are likely to be supporters of the liberals?

What happened?
It seems a hell of a lot of people, not a good look. At some point it is actually adulterated - I mean if it were tens of thousands of voters. At that point the elections might have to be re run.

Turnout low in Leave areas. High in Remain areas.

Hoping for a high yellow vote.

The chaos affected uk residents as well to a degree. We are away at the moment but our polling cards arrived AFTER the date for getting a postal vote had passed. The issues within government clearly led to no real planning being done for no Brexit, just for no deal Brexit!

I don't know what is worst about the country just at the moment - the nasty racism, as bad now as when it was visibly on our screens in the 70s, or the crass incompetence that goes with it all.

F*ck Brexit and F*ck the Tories and F*ck all insular hate-filled right wing tossers.

Does your comment apply to all the Labour voters who voted Leave as well? Just like to remind you that some of the strongest anti EU politicians were on the left of the Labour Party eg Tony Benn and Peter Shore among others and indeed the current leader is also anti EU. Its just lazy to paint all Leave supporters under the banner you fly of "F*ck Brexit and F*ck the Tories and F*ck all insular hate-filled right wing tossers."

The left have decent arguments against the EU - but Brexit will deliver a UK that will be even more of a lapdog to corperate capitalism

Iím not too sure that citing two politicians who have been dead for some time, one for nearly 2 decades, is very sensible. Itís rather like me saying that Churchill was in favour of greater European unity, so anyone who isnít is not patriotic.

That would come across better if you hadn't voted for a party whose official policy is to support Brexit and who are being investigated by the Equality and Human Rights Commission for antisemitism

Really? And here was I thinking they were looking at whether Labour's handling of such complaints complied with the law.
