1  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: The Pigfvcker Memorial Suppository for UK News: A Departure from EUtopia on: June 27, 2016, 12:15:39 pm
Boris now says the vote to leave was "not entirely overwhelming" and Gove wants the exit talks to be informal.

They're  beginning to realise what exactly they've done and they're terrified.

Plan Boris was obviously for a narrow Remain vote and for him to then ride the coattails of anger amongst Tory members in the Shires to no. 10.

This is what everybody is saying right now, but what I just can't understand. How could anyone supporting a losing side of a referendum immediately be in a good position to become the next Prime Minister?

Is electoral reform (read: proportional representation) now more likely? It would truly be beyond ironic if the LibDems were to successfully make a mockery of FPTP and end up in a position of power as a result of getting a large chunk of a decided minority, i.e. those who voted to remain.

It's hard to imagine Britons living in more interesting times than this.

The following deserves a (bumping) mention in this thread:

On a lighter note, have a look at this:

Would it be fair to say that the last Prime Minister to leave on his or her own terms was Harold Wilson?

84% turnout.

wow.

Folks on twitter saying that could F*** with the models the polls use.
Do you have a source on this?

Sky News is giving an estimated turnout of 83.7%.

Surprisingly, Nigel Farage himself immediately stated he thinks Remain has won.

Remain is running away with it on the (prediction) markets.

The lopsidedness of the distribution of teams in the knockout bracket is beyond ridiculous: You have Germany, Italy, Spain, France and England all on one half!

No, because she hasn't sworn the constitutionally required oath of fealty to Israel.

Anyone want to take a stab at what could be the bellwethers for this election, for any level of subdivision?
12  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: United Kingdom Referendum on European Union Membership on: June 21, 2016, 07:22:43 pm
The New York Times brought up a good point by pointing out that voters are expecting Remain to win by a clear plurality, which is reportedly a better indicator than a normal poll of voting intentions:

Does the age divide suggest that a Brexit referendum might have had a better chance of succeeding some time in the past, because support depends on the age in which someone is living, or is it rather the opposite, because it depends on the age one has attained?

according to court watchers.

Are those like Kremlinologists?

Are there any estimates what times the results will be announced?

Funny, I was just about to post this useful election night guide:

The prediction markets seem to be giving Remain a small bump after the murder.
17  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: United Kingdom Referendum on European Union Membership on: June 19, 2016, 06:48:06 am
I wonder how many Scots will cynically vote for Leave to improve their (own) chances of independence.
18  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: United Kingdom Referendum on European Union Membership on: June 18, 2016, 08:06:45 pm
I think what will really determine this referendum is the working class votes,
the turnout among C2 and  DEs have been low for over 25 years,
if turnout of the working class matches the level of turnout with the AB and C1s then it's a leave victory.

As an aside, may I just remark how much of a Brave New World vibe I'm getting from these grades?

I have a new theory, namely that Donald is treating the whole election as a joke and is just curious to see how far he can take his absurdity.
20  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: United Kingdom Referendum on European Union Membership on: June 18, 2016, 07:36:55 am
Unless there is a clear victory for one side or the other, there will now inevitably be a cloud over the outcome of the referendum as a result of this murder.

I have never heard of him. I'm more worried about Collin Powell's pending endorsement of Hillary.

Me neither. I welcome Colin's endorsement but feel like a lot of people would dismiss it because he's Black.

You haven't heard of the most likely suspect of the outing of Valerie Plame?

Wow, she's more in with the memers than one might think.

really hope this isn't some far right nut

To prevent misinterpretation, you really need to elaborate on what you meant there.
