Ironically it seems half the reason the Tories would win most seats is purely because so many people don't trust Jeremy Corbyn on the other side. It doesn't paint the full picture though, as Labour + Libs/SNP could form the majority, but it seems like the thought of the SNP being the swaying factor is a huge negative factor in England for Lib/Lab, if it's given enough airtime.

Could do with an independent Scotland now. Take a slice of London's wealth as the UK capital and let you lot deal with your personality crisis in your own way ;o)

    Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage offered Prime Minister Boris Johnson an election pact on Wednesday but warned that unless there was a clean-break Brexit, the Conservatives would take a "real kicking" in any election and could not win a majority.

    Johnson, who has lost his working majority in the House of Commons, wants to hold an election but parliament has ordered him to ask the EU to delay Brexit until 2020 unless he can strike a transition deal at an EU summit on Oct. 17-18.

Should have a referendum, should be the whole of the UK too. Be a landslide ;)

Er no.

Thought this was interesting, via reddit, sorry about the image.

It'd be much easier if England seceded, don't think you lot are too bothered about NI/Wales either :)

Boris Johnson has told government officials to explore the possibility of building a bridge between Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Documents seen by Channel 4 News reveal that both the Treasury and Department for Transport have been asked for advice on the costs and risks of such a project.

Johnson denies lying to Queen over Parliament suspension - BBC News

Politicians lie, but I suspect you'd better not lie to QE.
