mikey; //it shows that AB is not representative of political feeling in Britain.//

How did you figure that out?
Um: (not 'Ummmm' :-)
Compare the relative percentages of opinion polls and the per centages here.
As I indicated earlier also the people of N Ireland seem very reluctant to vote here, unlike in real life :-)
Khandro....the last time I checked, the 2 right wing Parties, the Tories and UKIP have between them 96 votes, against all the other Parties together of just 40.

That gives support for the right wing of over 70%, which doesn't represent a true picture of Britain today, especially when you consider that UKIP do not have any MPs.

Why would UKIP not having any MPs even be a consideration?

2015 Conservatives and UKIP got 50% of the vote and thanks to the current Labour omnishambles that figure would now be higher.
Maybe the AB poll will not be as far out as you want to believe, mikey.
I think UKIP get votes as folk need a party who believes in control of one's own nation, and not continue to vote for the longer established party's candidates who run scared of change in case the transition isn't issue free. Left and right politics have little to do with it. But the present 83 to 14 is probably to do with the split in ideologies in the Labour party where some want to stay right wing and other want to swing it back to the traditional left wing. Whilst the extremist views are competing it's difficult to present a reasonable united front to the voter.
At the last election I noticed that for the first time in my life all the candidates of the major parties were quite a bit younger than me. I'm now feeling young again as this time the leaders of the Tories and Labour are both older than me.
What did surprise me was that the stock market fell significantly when the election was announced yesterday I'd have expected the opposite.
FF....from what I understand, the markets hate uncertainty.
I think that the £ went up so profits were likely to fall for multinationals/exporters, and so did the value of their shares.
I thought the opposite happened, FF, but I was being told this by my son. Maybe he misheard.

He got very excited about this announcement because it'll be the first time he gets to vote. And he is knowledgeable enough to vote.
Elections mean uncertainty in democracies and markets don't like that.
What the AB poll is missing is a lot of Labour voters who aren't natural answerbankerd if have said.
But it doesn't, I would imagine, try to emulate the country, just gauge the mood of people here
I think the AB cohort is probably weighed more to the older generations, but it seems to represent a fair cross socio/economic section of society. Probably the most unrepresented are those like ummm's son; those in the first (and maybe second) decade of eligibility to vote, a group that tends traditionally to be left-leaning (before seeing the light). :0)
He's certainly left leaning and although he likes JC he doesn't like him as a Labour leader. I think he may actually vote Tory.

I don't vote and I also don't moan about results.
"A fair cross socio/economic section of society".

Khandro....you can't possibly know that although you are probably correct about the younger/1st timer voters.
Mikey...he is right. My kids are 25, 20 and 18....they are all lefties. It's only the 18 year old I'd trust to vote.
"It's only the 18 year old I'd trust to vote."

Quite. Get them to the polling stations whilst they still know everything.
It would be interesting to know how many of those Conservative votes could be considered gains.
Maybe here Garaman.
Full list of MPs who voted against a general election

Paul Farrelly

Liz McInnes
Dennis Skinner
Graham Stringer
INDEPENDENT

What are they afraid of? The gravy train not stopping at their station?
Can't see why any of the Labour lot voted against. They're all in safe seats and are bound to be returned.
Togo, I don't follow your reply. I was saying it would be interesting to know how many of the votes for Conservative in the AB poll could be considered gains, and you replied with a list of MPs who voted against the election!
Ahh I see, it's clear after your 8:23 update Garaman............and it was late. :)) Still, the list is worth having.
