    RIP one of the all time greats. A legend for club and country, sadly few remaining from his era now...

    Trying to work out how many decades it's been since ol' Henry last got the blood flowing
  4. Recently coming to terms with a shitload of mental baggage as I grow into my age and start to take on more responsibility. Anyone in the same boat feel free to reach out and we can chat somewhere else. Edit: Forgot to add you can usual see me on Schizo games like TF2 and VR chat, going by Lain or similar nicknames atm

    Perhaps not just if Labour fails to win both, but if Lab gets neither and the Tories get at least one quite possibly. I think the conservative establishment are likely to conclude such a moment is as good as their chances are going to be for a while and not risk waiting longer for a snap election, for the "trust of the nation" of course. Edit: Assuming Rutherglen is the potential Scottish one? I see that as a place thoroughly apathetic with politics, so I expect some slightly wacky results there from low turnout.

    As cliche as it sounds I really think the odds here are bout a third each for no change, tactical labour victory or apathetic lib dem victory. We'll definitely need more time closer to polling day with this one to start making a remotely concrete prediction.

    Ah couldn't find that, yes that does paint a different picture. Labour definitely second place favourites then - though I'd still say these kinds of by-elections have a way of surprising you. May well end up a tight three-way race.

    This doesn't conflict what I said, does it? North Shropshire looked even more lopsided than that in 2019, again with Labour as the largest *opposition party. The Liberal Democrats just don't seem to be treated the same by voters in by-election times.

    Tory hold definitely the most likely outcome, but who knows at this rate. I was wondering on what basis is this seat a Tory-Labour contest? Admittedly I'm quite far removed from the political action up here in West Yorkshire, but from my understanding with similar seats such as Chesham and Amersham, Tiverton and Honiton, North Shropshire etc. they're geographically large and rural southern communities put off from the conservative party by farther-right populist Tories. Unless there's something I'm missing, would that not also be the case here, knowing that national polls matter very little to such a midterm contest?

    Thank bloody christ. One of the biggest clowns at long last ejecting herself from the circus. Mid Bedfordshire is an incredibly solid tory seat, but as we've seen with by-elections in the past that does not stop Lib Dem gains against unpopular conservative incumbents.

    I'll go with Dick Van Dyke, purely because he's one of the celebrities I'm most shocked is somehow still living

    Based on this, hard to say. Perhaps if he killed the twat 50 years ago.

    Looks like he's decided to move back down (6 feet) under.

    Perhaps he *could*, going through every possible medical treatment until he passes that threshold, but I don't blame him one bit for deciding any care that could prolong his life isn't worth it any more. At some point dying peacefully around loved ones is far better than eking out another year or two hooked to machines.
