Nicola Sturgeon, Tim Farron and Jeremy Corbyn walk into a bar, and the bar man says "What do you lot want?" "
I want another referendum on Scottish independence." Said Sturgeon "
I want another referendum on Brexit." Said Farron
"I want to nationalise the railways and give more power to the Unions." Said Corbyn.
"Sorry" said the barman. "There no demand for a 2014 or 2016 night, but there's a 70's night on Friday."

Posted this because I thought it would be good to have a laugh inbetween our election discussion.

This is a pretty good piece from The Guardian today:

"Theresa May takes on the older voter. That’s gutsy, but is social care any fairer?"

Not sure they have thought that though

But I can wear the burka and take vit D tablets. Not that this burger wears a burka unless I have to have my photo taken.

Have you voted?
Can't make up my mind :(
You've got '50 Shades of May' which is a bit like the film but less sexy and an awful lot more people getting f****d
It's like she's on her driving test, Look right, look left for any hazards and then do a U-turn
The then Jerry, seems sincere but he once shopped in Waitrose in the 70's so I don't know if he can be trusted Tiny Tim, Christain who can't decide if homosexuality is a sin. Be careful Tim you god not that keen on people who deny him in public, look at Judas.
Paul Nutter... His party got what they wanted and he seems a bit redundant now.
Carol Lucas, I quite like her dad's film, She's promised me a unicorn but I bet mackem would end up eating it.
So. I decided to email all of my candidates (6) and promised to vote for anyone of them who can give me this thing.
Doctors having to phone me in the morning and offer ME an appointment...I might put them on hold but that's just petty
Gas bills capped at £5 a quarter
A referendum on whether Britain can leave the universe and decide stuff before the 2nd coming of the Lord
Anyone who has watched Game of Thrones and can explain to me what all the fuzz is about. I just don't get it myself?
Certain days of the week to be designated 'Slap them' days where you could legally punch people who annoy you. Pensioners who insist on chatting to the shop assistant long after they paid,
Drivers of SUVs
everyone who works on telesales
people who have finished their lunch but won't leave their table
More bobbies on the beat, in fact, everyone to get their own personal bobbies who can fold laundry and pop to the shop and deal with the tiresome pensioners
I'm waiting to hear back but until I do 'Unicorn pie anyone?'

It's done then. Exit polls suggest Conservatives may have lost their overall majority. Very tight though. Could be the worst strategic political gamble since, well, Cameron promised an EU referendum. Daft bastards.
But apart from that Mrs Lincoln how was the play?
