The Anonymous Widower

A Curious Election

I voted early this morning about 09:30

Because, the usual Polling Station in a school was unavailable, two stations had been combined in a local community hall.

Usually, Labour Party supporters are busy outside making sure that they maximise the vote for Meg Hillier.

But today there was no-one outside and the only greeting was from the Poll Clerk.

There didn’t seem to be too many people voting either. I don’t think it was as busy as 2017. And I always vote early!

Was it the weather, was I too early or was it some other reason?

All very curious.

The betting odds seem carious too! Both Tories and Labour seem to be dropping, with the others steady.

Does this say that the LibDems and others are getting squeezed?

  1. I have just got back, I picked Neil up on my way home from the gym and we went then. There was a steady trickle of people, no one asking who we voted for. I voted LibDem; they are extremely unlikely to win in this constituency, it is a very safe Labour seat. Although the popular Labour candidate of the past 30 or so years left Labour for TIG Change, and isn’t standing this time. She always did very well because she was very good! Whoever wrote the literature for the new Labour candidate doesn’t have a clue about the role, responsibility or power of a constituency MP. But since majority of the electorate don’t either, then he will probably win.

    • The literature was probably written by the local Momentum comisar. They are only interested in power for themselves and not for their constituents. Did you see Andrew Neil giving a lady from Momentum a hard time. Best bit of the election. She blamed Labour’s demise on Brexit, but let’s face it would anyone with a pension vote for Corbyn? Remember that a lot of the UK’s pension funds and insurance money goes into investments like new trains and trams, wind farms and energy storage as they give a twenty to thirty year investment that pays enough to fund people when they retire. Aviva have put nearly ten billion pounds into offshore wind.
