Prediction: hung parliament, JC reverses his "no coalition" position and gets into bed with SNP, Lib Dems, etc. Et viola, minority Labour government and another general election in six months' time.

Oh great, just what the country needs, more elections, maybe the whole 24 months of the Brexit talks can be taken up with elections, so they never actually start negotiating.

No vote for me. I rang the council to ask if my proxy had been sent yet, and found out my mother de-registered me from her address (where I was registered) after Brexit!

I say "after Brexit", it was after Brexit in date, and I'm pretty certain after Brexit in sentiment.

I am Quite Cross. There's only so far I can go with 'telling off' my mum (not very far at all) because boringfamilystuff, but she's very passive aggressive, and doesn't voluntarily update or amend ANYTHING, not EVER, she's pathologically opposed to it. So I'm pretty certain it was done on purpose.

I'd assumed when the form comes out where you say who is at that address she said "NOT SPAN!!!"?

Do you buy all this about how people fought and died for your right to vote, etc, so you HAVE to vote?

Because afark no one actually did fight and die, it just kind of "happened", except for Emily Pankhurst, and she didn't actually fight. She did die, however, but only because she ran in front of a horse if you recall, which was rather reckless.

Further to that, surely if anyone DID fight (and die) etc (which is not admitted) then also surely they did not do so in order that we may live in some "nazi state" where I might be compelled to do something - against my very will!

I mean to say, come on fighting-and-dying people, give me a break! Do we not cherish our freedoms, so very much not half we don't!

Regardless of all that, I feel that we must join together to condemn span for failing to vote. It's all very well pointing the "finger" of "blame" but Emily Pankhurst, had she survived, would surely have gone to a bit more effort. She did, after all, get trodden on.

The (lovely) woman at the council said she sent a form back where she had 'crossed me off'? Apparently in red marker pen and with such apparent fury that the pen went right through the paper. Not really, but she did cross me off.

Laugh! Did you see that one where the woman was 'fumming' about somethingorother, so everyone else just took the piss out of her being 'fumming'.

I very much buy it, although I also feel equally strong that it is ridiculous to push people to vote if they genuinely don't have a preference or aren't interested. A vote 'for the sake of it' almost feels anti-democratic to me because it doesn't actually represent what people want.

Which is why I think there should be a "None of the above" option.

Typical handwringing snowflake behaviour from you TT :D

Some things are not about what you want or would like or fancy doing. Some things are your civic duty, and if you don't like it, fcuk off to Somalia where you very much don't have to vote.

Yes, I would make voting compulsory. Spoil your ballot if you like, but turning up and participating is, for me, part of the social contract between me and The State.

Yes I did. :D

They get so angry about such trivial stuff, write 3000 words in one giant paragraph to ask if they're BU then strop off when they get told they are.
