UK faces tight, contentious election on Thursday

Polls open Thursday morning for a general election in the UK in which neither leading candidate, Conservative PM Boris Johnson nor Labor’s Jeremy Corbyn, are favorites. Johnson says his is the only party who can “get Brexit done,” while Corbyn says Labor offers “a vote for hope.” In the final polls, the Conservatives are projected to win 43pc of the vote, Labor, 34pc, the SNP 42pc and the Lib Dems 12 percent.

Johnson is warning against a hung parliament, while Corbyn hopes for a last-minute swing in his favor. A group of 15 former Labor MPs have urged voters to back other parties, saying Corbyn is unfit to be prime minister due to his record on anti-Semitism and national security.

    @GST001. Disagree. Forgiveness is paramount. Your idea is fatal. If you do not forgive the Father in heaven will neither forgive you. Have you never read Alexander Pope’s ‘to err is human, to forgive divine’ ?

    Britain has to exit the EU! The Dead line was placed on the exit by the election that wanted Britain out of the EU. All this delaying by those who have invested interests in staying in the EU are going to lose big time. The British people are not keen on Globalism!
