General Election called

Here we go again. It's like watching Crossroads all over. Only thing to do I 'spose.

Crossroads?
Between my finger and my thumb the squat pen rests. I'll dig with it.

The old joke about turkeys voting for Christmas has never been more apposite.

Crossroads?
It was a classic soap opera from the 60's and 70's. Showing me age again.

It's not the despair that will kill you, it's the hope.

Interestingly this report has been in Whitehall for some time now and had not been leaked. If it throws doubt on the referendum result then there has been ample time to leak it. Interesting it should come out now in the middle of an election campaign.

It still hasn't been leaked AFAIK. It is now being called upon to be released officially by sitting MP's.

Not meant as a criticism but I thought technically once parliament rises for a GE there are no MP's

Ah OK, I apologise. I thought you were being sarky/ pedantic.
