1  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: Puerto Rico status referendum - June 11 on: June 10, 2017, 07:50:31 am
Again with the referendum with more than two options! If you're not going to allow a ranked choice here (which given the various issues is at least understandable), it should be a binary choice, with one option being the status quo. If one option (statehood most likely) wins without a majority, we have the exact same mess as last time!

They originally had it as statehood or status quo but Bureagard and Trump made them change it back.

That is not correct. It was the "status quo" option which was omitted and pushed back in by the Justice Department.

The video in that tweet was uploaded to Twitter itself, but the previous tweet has a link to a website showing the same clip as an embedded YouTube-video, whose page you can get to in various ways.

Just see it as delayed punishment for the coalition.

Sky news is saying Tories are doing a bit better than exit poll. A majority is still possible... 324, 326.. maybe 327.

Given the reality of Brexit, this might actually be their worst case scenario in the long term.

Scotland saving the Tories now? What kind of timeline is this?
7  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: UK General Election, 2017 - Election Day and Results Thread on: June 08, 2017, 08:13:25 pm
The real realignment this election may be conservatives gaining Scottish unionists and young people finally turning out for labor for real.

And Corbyn successfully healing the Remain/Leave divide.

I think we can call it and one of the few good news from tonight, RIP UKIP.

That's a bit like celebrating the death of a suicide bomber after detonating at the intended target.

How many seats are the SNP on track of losing?

Jeremy Corbyn now favorite of becoming PM on Betfair!!!

What? Seriously?

At the moment it fluctuated back to Theresa again, but remember also that she is not likely to remain PM even with a Tory government.

So much for the UKIP being a "gateway drug".
13  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: UK General Election, 2017 - Election Day and Results Thread on: June 08, 2017, 04:03:02 pm
HAHAHAHA! The country is completely f'ed now.

I wouldn't easily rule out polls where Labour are doing (relatively) well, because, if anything, pollsters have the tendency to overcompensate for the direction in which were wrong last time (their underestimation of the Tories in 2015). Of course, one can also take this to the next level and third guess oneself, and so forth.
15  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Breaking News: Iraqi Kurds to hold Independence Referendum on September 25 on: June 07, 2017, 04:25:37 pm
I thought the Iraqi Kurds were sufficiently content with the large degree of autonomy they are already enjoying, instead of rocking the boat too much by going all out for independence. This change in sentiment must have been the result of the pathetic initial showing the Iraqi army made in the face of ISIS.

Perhaps Theresa's refusal to stand up for the mayor of her capital city is now also contributing to her fall in the polls.

My rule of thumb is that the goodless bad guys tend to be the side which Saudi Arabia isn't on.

Looks like the campaign is about to be suspended again...

Theresa May's decision to invoke Article 50 before calling an election must have been the biggest blunder in her political career so far: Not only is it unnecessarily wasting precious negotiation time during the withdrawal timer, but by making Brexit truly irrevocable, it also made a moot point of whatever suspicions (justified or not) the electorate might have had about whether Labour would have made the commitment themselves, which would surely have been a campaign issue otherwise.
21  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: UK General Election, June 8th 2017 on: May 31, 2017, 04:15:24 pm
The Financial Times has endorsed May.

Of all the big papers, they seem to be the most pessimistic about Brexit.

isn't Abbas like three-hundred years old at this stage?
You know what they say about Palestinian refugees... they never die.

Still younger than Jews that "returned" home after two millennia.

I guess you could say he got the Chris Christie treatment.

I'm not talking about whether a single party has free reign over the country or not. The Brexit negotiations look like a train wreck in slow motion and the country might disintegrate over it.
25  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: France 2017: Results Thread on: May 04, 2017, 05:38:12 pm
Funny you should say that, because the only other European country with a non-proportional lower house is now a complete mess ever since they voted to leave the EU.
