  • The event you have waited for, at approx 21.00 hours tonight I will give my expected result: I guess that with both Labour and Conservaives appearing to be significantly increasing their national vote, that must impact upon our opportunities.

    I’m voting for Lib Dem Sue McGuire in Southport. Lots of people on Facebook and Twitter seem to think Labour have the moral high ground, but on foreign policy non-intervention won’t help people suffering at the hands of Assad and ISIS.

    I don’t agree with Labour on economics either, but the argument against their position on foreign policy is easy because it goes against their own values.

    There was I thinking that Assad and ISIS were on opposite sides…Non-intervention, FULL STOP, in the Middle East would have meant that the region would be a lot more stable, its inhabitants would have an civilised infrastructure and not living in ruins/tents, etc…

    From a LibDem perspective,,,If military action to remove Saddam was wrong; why was military action to remove Gaddafi right?

    Voted early. I wonder why, I first voted in 1979 and have voted for one winning candidate, in a council by-election in the 90’s.

    Only one leaflet has come through my door (Lib Dem Anne-Marie Barker), I have seen three poster boards up in the whole constituency, all Lib Dem, but the fact is the seat (Surrey Heath) is so safe the Tories don’t have to do anything at all. I have seen houses where Tory posters always appear with nothing showing at all, no leaflets, no appearances from Mr Gove, nothing.

    Democracy doesn’t work for me, speaking to the rest of my family the story is the same; safe seats, no effort, no real point in voting. Sorry, just wanted to grumble.

    This election the Lib Dems are on the right side of so many arguments. When the entrails are examined let’s not blame what the Lib Dems stood for, nor Tim Farron who has done as well as could be expected. The next few years might prove that the Lib Dems were right and they still won’t get any credit.

    Probably the Tories will win and we will get a bad brexit because they are not grown up enough to understand that to get the best out of negotiations you don’t start off by slagging off the other party, or maybe Labour with spending plans that will take us back to 1978 and an attitude to business we can ill afford while brexit is taking place. I worry about what state the country will be in next time there is a general election.

    Still perhaps there will be a few more Lib Dem MPs tomorrow morning, so good luck everyone. And well done for standing up for what you believe in.
