If you voted tory all your life you're one of two things, very, very rich or very, very stupid.
The latter I'm afraid, what's your excuse with you're black and white polarised view. I guess you're stupid too. Removed

Request a postal vote ASAP

Make sure that you vote

If you don't like the candidates you have to choose from, spoil your ballot, but do NOT do nothing, that kind of lazy complacency leads to the degradation of democracy and ultimately it's responsibility to prevent this.
Wrong 'it's'. It's 'its'. Removed

Latest poll show Starmer losing votes for Labour, now lag Tories. This is amazing. He should be 8-12 points ahead.

He offers no policies or believable alternative so why would he expect to lead.

He has done his job of making Labour unelectable. Their front bench looks and is weak.

Labour have spent so much time being politically correct that they have become politically inept.
Best vote for the charlatans & shysters who are responsible for the Brexit s%!t show, 106K deaths from Covid & siphoning public money off to their mates then. Can't possibly be a better alternative ! Removed

So how many deaths would there have been under a Labour government then 0? 105K? more? I'd be really interested to hear your thoughts and the science they are based on.

Can you explain why it is safe to hold elections in England, but unsafe in Scotland according to the Tories? Gvien that the infection rate in Scotland is under control according to WHO rules. I am not a member of the SNP, I have never seen any SNP bus bringing people to vote ever, can you provide evidence for this accusation, or are you paranoid?

Brexit would almost certainly have gone the other way if the same citizens that can vote in local elections could have had the vote in the referendum:
Those who have settled in this country from the EU can vote in local elections but not in national elections and referendums.
I often say that to my Wife - "Do you know", I say, "if the EU had been allowed to vote instead of UK in the referendum, it would have gone the other way?" Her reply?
"If your Aunt Fanny had b**** she'd be your Uncle Fanny." Now, mind you, she could dispense with the b**** and just self-identify.

Destroy all industries without investment in the people or in any other employer and what do you expect?

That's exactly what happened under Thatcher and the greatest increase in social deprivation, and the health, wealth and education gaps the UK has seen

If you had any objectivity, you'd state that while Labour are far from perfect, the Tories stand for nobody not rich enough to offshore wealth

Remember that when it comes to planning, under Tories they're only local issues if the government agrees with them, if they disagree it's suddenly a ministerial decision....antidemocratic authoritarianism by the backdoor

This has been proved by fracking, the coalmine in Cumbria and the HS2 route

NEVER trust the Tories
The only other time Tory Ministers get involved on planning is when there's a Tory Donors development on the line! Then they act unlawfully, but dont resign or get sacked when they get caught! That's what your voting for!?? Removed

What a waste of time and money, council elections to replace useless jobsworths with more useless jobsworths.

I think our local Labour council's only achievements is the creation of chaos with their congestion creation department. Before too long, there will be traffic lights on every junction, a 15mph speed limit everywhere, and sleeping policement every 50 yards.

Those that dislike our voting system can always vote for a party that wants to change it. Wasn’t that long ago a party were in a coalition that wanted change and did get a ref in 2011, sadly for them only 1/3 of the 40% turnout agreed, status quo prevailed.

There is a concerted effort to put people off voting

Do NOT listen to those voices

Voting is a hard fought right and as such, you have a moral duty to exercise this right
Not doing so cannot improve anything, it inevitably leads to worse candidates, less choice and fewer real changes in society

Make sure you vote, only a lazy fool or a fascist doesn't want you to use your voice
Often it's impossible to vote when there is no one on the ballot worthy of your vote...

It's got nothing to do with your childish remarks of being a "lazy" fool or your hysterical pathetic "fascist" comment...

Methinks the voices in your head need something done about them... seek psychiatric help.. soon...

Even the Labour Party is asking Starmer where are they heading to ?
I think he will say at this rate probably down the pan.
No ideas worth zip, no money from the unions, front bench dubious,Corbyn breathing down my neck with momentum.
The party is an embarrassment to its supporter, and we supported brexit as well.
