The Trump elections have made me very cagey about announcing sure bankers when it comes to elections. I knew Hillary was no walk-in-the-park, but I thought surely? Surely?? But no, I was wrong. Now, we are left with 4 years of Bigly and Covfefe, and there is simply not enough coffee or indeed cocaine to deal with this shitstorm.
Add Brexit to the ongoing nightmare that is Planet Earth at the moment, and I was certain that Theresa’s Darthvader-esque scheme to hold early elections could only further drive a nail into humanity’s coffin. Yes, let’s kuku hand the country over to the Tories finally, and all go to hell in an impoverished hand-basket.
But the polls are giving us cause to hope. Could it be that the easy win that Theresa May envisaged might not be so easy after all? Could it be that Britain just might be in with a fighting chance? The gap between the two major parties has continued to narrow in poll trackers since campaigning started, and Labour are fighting for their place in today’s UK government.
When May stunned the world on April 18 with her call for a snap election ( a few days after firmly stating that there would be NO such thing), opinion polls suggested a landslide victory for the Tories.
But polls have shown May’s rating slipping over the past month, with some suggesting she might not win the landslide predicted just a month ago.
When asked by a reporter if she would resign if she lost seats though, May dodged the question on Wednesday, saying that the only poll that mattered was the election on June 8.
We can but live in hope, but the hope is considerably more than I ever had going into these elections.
