Was the recent British election an example of clothespin voting?

    Partially, at least.

    Some seats had been Labour seats for over 100 years and this time they voted Conservative.

    That wasn't because they really liked either the Conservative Party or their Conservative Candidate but more to get Brexit sorted out once and for all.

    This was basically the fourth vote on the subject and people are getting fed up with our elected representatives not doing what they said they would. So they voted to give the most promising party the biggest majority they could. A majority of 80 is as good as it was in the days of Thatcher.

    No people are just not going to accept the absurd ideology of marxist socialism.

      Of course it's an absurd ideology, but is it wrong to suggest that these people saw the Conservatives as a lesser of two evils?
