Election 2019



  • Looks like a Conservative majority incoming?

    What does this mean for FI? Leaving the EU good/ bad for expansion? Election bounce to boost the economy?



  • Not sure what, if any impact on FI.

    Great for the country tho. Although I may be bias as I bleed blue and everywhere I've ever lived is 99+% likely of being Conservative ☺



  • Get scouting your African and Asian players gents, when European players may be getting refused work permits you wanna make sure you're on Patson Daka!



  • @Lukeroro this is one of the oddest pumps on a player I’ve seen and makes absolutely no sense!



  • 🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳👏👏👏👏👏



  • First time I’ve ever voted, and I voted Tory 🔵

    Good man! 🍻



  • @FarkeBall-Index I think it’s a joke not a pump



  • Great result. We finally had our second referendum & the answer was resounding. 👍

    Absolutely Eric! 🥳 after so many saying corbyn was God and ‘people definitely have changed their mind and want to remain in the Eu’ we resoundingly have the answer, and that answer is fck leftist communists and fck the eu!

    Now to make everything perfect, we now need to get rid of ‘Sad-iq-can’t’ (tm😉) and get a Tory mayor of london!! 🥳🥳🥳



  • @Sol it's a great day Sol. 👍

    Pound is up, we are set to leave the EU & we can all move on with our lives.

    But let's be gracious in victory as we no doubt would have been in defeat.

    Hopefully, the remainiacs have had the message hammered home, they will accept democracy & we can all move on with our lives too.



  • Boris is probably as unfit a candidate as you could find to be prime minister. However Labour have donw such a job of alienating their working class voters so they brought this on themselves.

    I think s Tory brexit is likely to be a terrible thing. But there's no way to stop it now.

    I just hope that the NHS survives the next 5 years and that a less shambolic version of labour can fight them next time.

    Your right - Labour did bring it on themselves. Hopefully, it can shock them to life.

    Let's get behind Brexit instead of constantly moaning - it's time to move on. The country has voted twice on this now & the second time was more conclusive than the first.

    The pound is up & our parliament can now function again. We can leave on 31st January & begin to negotiate our own trade deals. 👍

    I wouldn't worry about the NHS - the last Labour government sold off & privatised more of it than any other government in history.

    The Conservatives has just promised more money to hopefully improve things & we no longer have to be paying into the coffers of the EU.

  • News just in.... Jo Swinson is insisting on an immediate by-election in her former constituency. Apparently she has proof that Amy Callaghan once lied at school and also she just doesn’t like last night’s result.

    Jo is a passionate democrat, but only when democracy gives her the result she wants!



  • @Ericali he Tories have a terrible track record with honesty, public spending and workers rights. Boris particually. Getting to te next election with am an NHS that hasn't been sold off and privatised is the most optimism I can take right now.



  • @NewUser303261 well we can vote them out if they do rubbish then. 👍

    But firsty, we have voted them in because the country wants to leave to EU & they was the only main party that realistically, was willing to do it.

    As for the NHS, like I said they yesterday, don't worry too much about it. The Tory's have been in charge of it for 44 years out of the 71 it has existed.

    They have never sold it previously & USA has said they wouldn't have it if it was handed to them on a silver plateau.

    It's all scaremongering - Labour have privatised the NHS under Tony Blair more than anyone.

    In fact, Labour has been in charge of the NHS in Wales since the formation of the Welsh assembly in 1999.

    Interestingly Wales lag behind the UK in almost every measure for medical practices according to independent reports.

    So it's unlikely Labour would have been the Knight in shining armour that is portrayed.



  • @Ericali I think at least 99.99% of NHS staff would dissagree. And as someone that worked in the NHS for years but was made redundant when the tories privatised NHS Direct I'd also dissagee.

    The Tories won because the opposition were a shambles. Remainers were arguing with each each about why they can't vote for various parties that are supposedly remain or not. Torys won and lost seats in leave and remain areas. Labour won and lost seats and leave an remain areas. The result shows more that Labour need to completely change their ways more than anything.

    That said, I also realise that the election does kill dead any resonable opposition to brexit at this stage.

    Well as someone who has personally been affected by Tories privatising NHS Direct than I can see why you are worried.

    It's an unfortunate situation.

    But to appreciate the other side of the coin, many others would have been affected by Tony Blair's privatising the NHS & losing their jobs too.

    And if we can control our own borders maybe that 99.99% of NHS staff won't be overburdened dealing with more clients than is humanly possible.

    The time we can judge them is now they can actually govern without meeting roadblocks.



  • At least we wont have to see much of Boris. He will clearly fuck it up (even more than the tories have ruined this country) and spend his time hiding in a fridge.

    I live in East Yorkshire, we have a really low immigration rate around here. Growing up, the only non-white people in my town were nurses, doctors and takeaway owners. We had 3 black kids in the entire school and a chap everyone in town refers to as black-Pete... thats how white this town is.

    Yet we've had our hospital decimated. Our doctors surgeries are restricted time appointments, anyone in our town who needs the hospital ends up 20 miles out of town or 50 miles out of town because the hospital here where I live (which was only built at the back end of the 90's) has been stripped of funding to the point where they genuinely can't even treat the flu, never mind let you have a baby or a heart attack or a broken hip or treat cancer. (All of which are things that have happened to my family in recent years)

    The truth about immigrants is, they are highly profitable for our nation. We don't pay for adult immigrants to attend school for 11 years, we don't give them TB jabs or any of the jabs kids have at birth. We don't care for them at all during the early stages of their life because they aren't here but they pay there taxes. All of which makes them significantly more profitable per head than British born people. Of course a larger population requires a larger NHS but the profits that come from immigration could easily be spent on the NHS but with the Tories in charge, it goes against their main ideology. That's why the NHS are under so much strain, lack of funding, by the Conservatives.
