Easy choice for me this time as only the Lib Dems want to keep the UK together and in the EU.

But then, if L.D. get in Brexit cannot be reversed, or can it?

The Libs won't win but ARE prepared to go into another coalition with the Tories.

No, I'm voting for them alright, but I doubt they will register as highly as the last election but one.

Can anyone honestly see any outcome but Maggie May getting the increased majority she said she wouldn't attempt to gain when first 'elected' and asked to call an election?!

Ken Clarke, that famous Tory member of the Immortal Rich, has announced that he's standing (yet!) again despite representing Nottingham Rushcliffe since around the 1670's. I think it's his 103rd term! This means that voters for any other party might as well stay at home, but I won't.

If Ken ever does decide to stand down and/or die, they would elect anything wearing a blue rosette. I think I'll nominate my dog since she thinks anything she wants within her reach is hers - sounds like a natural Tory to me!

Did you see that 'This Morning' (ITV) poll last week?

'Who Do You Want To Be The Next Prime Minister?'

It went live last week and when Corbyn hit 61% they pulled the poll off the website.

But people noticed it had been pulled and complained so they put it back up yesterday with a note that the poll would end at 8am this morning (24th April).

When the poll closed Corbyn was at 68% with May on 19%.

My dog would poll more than 19% - and make a better PM than Maggie May!
