One person's word is evidence.
Don't you come round here posting your alt-facts and fake news.

All I said was it was compelling viewing.

They irony that a right wing party doesn't seem keen to have the possibility that the Russians might have played a part in their election investigated is just too funny for words.

Anyway, who's going first with the prediction for tonight then?

You know, before the telly box.

Tory majority around 100. Disaster for Labour, especially in NW and midlands.

I'm going for c*ntishness all round.

I'm uneasy on this one. I think the Tories will get their majority, like in 2015. But there'll be twists and turns aplenty. Despite losing their middle ground, Labour has appealed to plenty of the Brexit crowd.

Interestingly, I know 2 Labour voters from work, both Remainers, who are voting Tory in a previously reasonably safe Labour seat. For, and we need a f*cking drumroll here, the 'strong and stable' message.

Oooh interesting.
