Thought I'd mention this since it's rather big at the moment - what are peoples views on the Scottish Independence Referendum next Thursday? I'm voting YES, although I have been a fan of Devo Max lately - shame it isn't an option on the ballot sheet.

Yes. It's logical. It's long overdue. It's right. :smt023

It's...it's terribly quiet. It's a ghost town. It's desolate as you say.

All of us who were once part of the furniture, once stalwarts of the grand and extravagant, exuberant and thriving forum...have receded back into the walls, still barely visible, still here as poignant, reminding relics of an era gone by...but most of us have vanished, forever immersed in the mists of time.

Well, the result today was just...horrible.

I made a joke on Facebook today that I wanted a real "Midnight Train Going Anywhere"...I actually do, to take me anywhere apart from the UK.

What are your predictions for the General Election?

http://www.electoralcalculus.co.uk/homepage.html and http://www.electoralcalculus.co.uk/homepage.html are good websites to keep track of the predicted seats based on opinion polls.

There's currently a 91% chance of a hung parliament so it's highly likely. Unlike 2010 though, it seems the seats will be so equally split between the Conservatives and Labour that a simple coalition with another party won't be possible to create a majority parliament of at least 326 seats.

I think the most likely outcome is the Conservatives and Labour getting almost getting the same number of seats, with the Lib Dems getting a very low number. From this, I suspect Labour would form a minority government with support from (or an official coalition with) the SNP. This wouldn't be a majority government though so there could be problems further down the line, with the possibility of another election soon after. I don't think it's likely that the Lib Dems will have enough seats to form a coalition or offer support, meaning the SNP would have to be involved, and the SNP are more likely to side with Labour than the Conservatives.

The prime minister choices are akin to this - would you rather be stung by a wasp or a bee?

The Scottish National Party (my own one) is predicted to have a whitewash up here...goodness knows what'll happen after that.

I fully expect that should the Labour Party do any kind of deal with the SNP, the electorate in England will never forgive them. It could be a disaster for the UK. The last thing we need during times like this, is the SNP using Westminster to further their agenda to break up the UK. Unfortunately we have a weak Prime Minister and an even weaker leader of the opposition. No wonder the SNP and UKIP are making inroads.

By the way, the Green party are bonkers. :wave:

Thankfully I don't think UKIP will gain enough seats for a Con/UKIP alliance to be workable.

I agree there - both that they won't perform well at all, and that that is a fortunate thing indeed.

Neither will the Lib Dems!

Oh well, at least it will make for an exciting election night. We can worry about the details in the morning. :suspect: :ponder:

Cilla Black, the entertainer and singer, has died at home near Marbella aged 72. A sad day for showbusiness, in this country at least. :(

Well, I assume everyone's heard about it so - what do people think about the SNAP General Election?

While I'm happy about there being one, I do think it's a cover-up for how bad Brexit it going.
