Now that nominations are closed, we can finally see our choices.

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/n...l-election-2019

In Tewkesbury : Con, Lab, LD & Green.

In Cheltenham : Con, Lab, LD & MRLP.

This time the LD's candidate is not former MP Martin Horwood - I wonder if that'll make a difference?

Truro & Falmouth

Conservatives (previous MP stood down, new candidate)
Labour
Lib Dems
Green
Liberal Party (new one!)

In order in where they finished in the last election, which was 3k gap marginal with a huge increase for Labour last time, but this seat has a tradition of liberalism and there are signs that that's on the rise, making it a pretty deadly 3-way battle in which the likely winner will be the Tories sad.gif If any of you have seen Jon Worth's great tactical voting roundup blog, it was one of the few seats in which he couldn't make any recommendation. That's the dilemma I've got and it's not an easy one.

Were I in England and in the area I'd be probably choosing between campaigning in Camborne/Redruth for Labour or St. Ives for the Liberals as those seem more winnable.

Very droll.

I live on the outskirts of Cheltenham, in a ward that falls into the Tewkesbury constituency.

Green: Jacqueline Bond
Conservative: Sarah Bool
Labour: Florence Eshalomi
Independent: Sarah Faissal
Lib Dem: Sarah Lewis
Brexit Party: Andrew McGuinness

Labour won with a majority of 20,250 in 2017 so they seem pretty safe. The best news about that though, Kate Hoey IS now GONE! So I could actually vote Labour with my conscience intact if I want. cheer.gif

Intriguingly, East Ham tends to have a good turnout, unlike a lot of rock-solid Labour seats.

Yes people do seem to get out and vote here. Think it was a good turnout for the EU referendum too.

Unlike a good few of you I’m in a literally every vote matters seat: Fife North East (Majority: 2 - after 3rd recount)

SNP (Incumbent)
Lib Dem (Pre-2015 Incumbent under former leader Ming Campbell)
Cuntservative
Labour (will be lucky to cling to deposit)

We’ve just got the big 4 standing. Thankfully the Greens aren’t standing here and neither is Brexit/UKIP (interestingly those two parties aren’t facing each other in any seats in Scotland from what I saw earlier)

Should be a straight fight between the nationalists and the lib dems. We were 63,7% remain (estimated) so just above average for Scotland. And the nationalists had double the share of the lib dems at the Euros across the county as a whole.

For all know she could be a very good Constituency MP like they say Dianne Abbott is.

Islington South and Finsbury

Official Monster Raving Loony Party
Conservative
The Brexit Party
Green
Lib Dem
Labour

Interested to see how much of a swing there is to the Lib Dems. I've seen the Lib dem candidate on the streets campaigning the other day. I have a feeling it'll be quite a big swing, although not big enough to take the seat.

Labour and Lib Dems reaaally should have settled their differences and worked together. Apparently Labour refused to stand down in Lib Dem Con marginals before Lib Dems did it with Labour.

All three constituencies near where I'm registered are Lib Dem/Green/Lab/Tory, with the latter likely to win all three, even though two were Labour until 2010.

The most interesting nearby constituency is High Peak, which was one of the 30 Tory->Labour gains in 2017 and looks to be very close this year. It has both a 'traditional Labour-Leave white working class' etc. contingent, but, unlike nearby Labour->Tory 2017 gains (Mansfield, North East Derbyshire, Stoke South), it also a larger contingent than average of middle class, middle aged, ecologically-minded, vaguely hippy voters. The Leave vote was only 51% which is basically a Remain stronghold by Derbyshire standards.

That particular seat will probably depend on how much 2017 Labour voters switch to the Lib Dems or Greens. And on the Lib Dem front, there has already been some controversy:



He has since stood down as candidate and been replaced by another.

Also the outgoing MP for East Staffordshire and noted pervert, Andrew Griffiths, survived the Parliamentary Conservative Party's candidature process, probably because they have no moral compass, but has been deselected by his local party and will most likely be succeeded by his soon-to-be-ex wife. Ouch.

You are in North Belfast iirc, fellow NIer?

I personally would vote Alliance if I was there. I was predicting SF to just about win it there though and oust Dodds, but they have received some press criticism recently up there concerning a canvasser so I don't know now.
