More FREE goodies - free broadband  !    Is anyone taken in by this nonsense ?   The only thing Labour will be providing free - is free movement for migrants.

Don't we usually get about 30% voter turnout in General Elections ? Everything will depend on who motivates their desciples the most & i doubt if any result will be conclusive in Brexit terms.

Labour's intention to provide "FREE" internet broadband for everyone depends on nationalising BT which is owned, for a large part, by private individuals who bought shares when it was privatised. So where does the "FREE" part come in? We would all be paying for it, some more than others, and whether we used it or not. TV licence anyone? There's nothing free in this life, and anyone who tells you different is a charlatan or a liar or a lying charlatan or a Labour politician.

The lowest turnout since the war was 59.4% in 2001 but this time it should be up at 70% again. It was 68.7% in 2017.

That is so that in future elections people will be able to vote via the app rather than having to get up and walk to the polling station or post box.

It will probably be a record turnout for this one. Either a record high or a record low. (except for chorley who can only vote for lindsay hoyle)

Eventually, if humanity lasts long enough, one giant computer will basically run the Country, fed with the aspirations of every single voter - thus cutting out the middlemen, the politicians, altogether   !      😉
