What I don't get, you have 331 seats, a simple majority. You're in good shape. Why get greedy and call a GE? I mean, I know let's really gently caress up Labour, but is there any benefit to having a bigger majority?

Ok, another question from a dumb American.

I thought for the UK parliament you just voted for a party nationwide, and then they got X percent of the seats based on the results? Is that wrong or is that in addition to counties/districts (IDK the correct term) having a local MP?

i believe each individual constituency is FPTP

Nonsense posted:

Please don’t give me the old “we were unlucky, just a few votes short” or “the machine was weak we didn’t get our message across” routines please. It was precisely because we DID get the message across that we find ourselves in this predicament.

My son has been left-wing since being at uni and I learnt to dread picking him up from work during the campaign. There always seemed to be a positive message from Labour, hope to an end to austerity, goodies for all, especially the hard done to young. When I tried to counter argue about fantasy politics and asking where Corbyn’s magic money tree was, the answer “our manifesto is fully costed. Your’s isn’t!” shut me down there. Corbyn got out and met real voters. TM seemed to hide from them. Did I get any help from hearing what the great and the good on our side were saying? Well apart from “strong and stable”, “coalition of chaos” and anti-Corbyn waffle from Bojo I heard about 10 minutes from “spreadsheet Phil” telling us to wait for the manifesto. What was in our manifesto to offer hope and counter my son’s arguments? Fox hunting and the dementia tax actually strengthened his hand. To use Sir Geoffery Howe’s cricketing metaphor, I was going out to face Dennis Lillee in his pomp only to find that not only had the team captain broken the bats but had destroyed my pads, gloves, helmet and box, too.

By polling day I was completely punch drunk. The only reason I voted Conservative at the end was sheer bloody mindedness after my son had systematically destroyed any logical arguments I had for supporting a regime that had royally screwed him over and was now coming for me as I approach my dotage. I found myself actually wishing for a Corbyn victory, just to see if the socialist paradise I dreamed of as a teenager was really possible and if not, safe and smug in the knowledge that I could safely shuffle off this mortal coil leaving my son to pay for clearing up the mess!

Can we please find someone who actually knows what they’re doing to come up with policies that make Joe Public’s life a little easier and someone who descends their Olympian heights to engages with us and put them forward? Otherwise we face another 1997 style drubbing nest time.
