    7 points is about the minimum required for a workable majority. That would be a good result, as it would prevent the hard Brexiteers from being swamped by new members, few of whom would be of a similar mind.

    • Good for Brexit, I have little faith in May.

        Yes, but in this case, one should vote for the lesser of the two evils in Britain. That’s how I vote in Canada federally also. In the last election, I voted for Harper because while he was less than great, he was still the least of all evils of the parties.

    The fact that a raging antisemitic, socialist almost won the election in the UK speaks volumes and does not bode well.

    Based on media polling, I rather expect the real numbers are about 15% with and added bullshit quotient of 3%..

    I don’t trust the polls one way or the other. Besides, the Brits are in a no-win situation, with the choice between an incompetent and a lunatic.

    The UK press is cutting off access to vote information. There is next to nothing at the sites linked here at BCF.
