May has called this election because she believes the papers. She believes that she will walk it and in doing so get a mandate for whatever kind of Brexit she pulls out of her @rse next. I hope it blows up in her face, big time.
I hope the electorate is smarter than she or anyone else thinks. I hope that people question the candidates and vote for anti-Brexit ones, whatever their party. There isn't time for a proper coalition to come together (this should have been happening since June 24th last year), but there is the opportunity for the people to speak, loud and clear. Now is the time for everyone who wants to halt this runaway train to oblivion to stand up and shout. Loudly. Show the establishment, once again, that polls, and traditional news media and everyone else has got it wrong. Only this time, instead of it meaning that Trump and Brexit and all the other sh*t wins, let it mean that sense prevails.
Most of all, we need to galvanise the 18-24 vote. This is most assuredly their future in the balance.
It isn't another referendum....but it could be the gateway to another referendum. A legitimate gateway. The Mail et al can't call it 'undemocratic' if it comes after an election where pro-Remain candidates are clearly more successful than pro-Brexit ones.
This is my fervent hope. And I'm going to be banging on about it everywhere and to everyone, in the vain hope that it gets somewhere.
