    What does "done" mean?

    I have carefully avoided this thread up to now.
    My answer to the question is, "Yes. It's my duty."

    Thank you.

    And which Party are you currently going to vote for?

    I'm in a marginal, currently Tory held from Labour.

    I've had several leaflets from the Tories (including some duplicates), plus a visit (sadly, I was out - would have loved to have had a conversation with them!).
    I've had one leaflet from the LibDems.
    STILL nothing from Labour. I just don't get it. This is a marginal seat, which has previously been held by the Labour candidate. I'd have thought there would be something from the Labour party in this area.

    Not really anyone else's business...

    I've not stated who I'll be voting for... I hope it's clear it won't be either of the Big Two. Both disgust me.

    In which case the Tory slogan is a particularly disgraceful lie, because they know full well Brexit will not be "done" for many, many years to come, and they are gulling the British electorate.

    Thank you

    What does "Get Brexit Done" mean?

    When does it become "done"?

    or, if you like "finished"?

    Absolutely. In the dim and distant past of this thread you will find a post where I say how and why I will vote and that still stands. I live in a seat with a huge Tory majority so the chance of success are low but I will still try.

    I will vote tactically to try and remove one Tory MP from the roster. I will do this because if Boris gets an overall majority the result will be a disaster. Compared with that everything else is a plus and if I have to risk Corbyn getting into power then so be it. It is far and away better than allowing Boris into power.

    It would be stupid to vote Tory.

    Agree. But its fascinating to hear how people intend to vote and why. Imho no party can truly be trusted and the Brexit vote has shown that.
    I have changed my mind so many times - but the Tory Party at least are clear that they want to deliver Brexit.

    I find it disturbing how many see the risk of an antisemitic party being in power as "acceptable" ... for a long time I have resisted the voices who proclaim us a more and more racist society.

    The support for Corbyn and his crowd shows I was wrong. As long as the racism is the right kind then it is excused or embraced.*

    * this is not to say you are racist irs1054... just that you willing to look the other way or hold your nose. A passive acceptance maybe...

    Yes. However, I am voting Green.

    There are way too many people using foodbanks, way too many children without enough to eat and living in cold homes.

    There is a crisis in social care

    We all know about the state of our schools

    There is a crisis in the NHS. A large number of doctors and nurses is telling us to vote against Johnson

    The conservatives' action on climate change is useless. Labour's is poor but at least it's better.
