    Oh I meant LD sniping at Labour and Labour sniping at LD. Twitter is full of it and its bloody irritating. And whilst you are at it you should both be standing down in seats you can't win if you truly care about the national interest.

    Annoyingly I'm recommended to vote labour who I'm not a fan off at the moment, and yes that it is principally down to Corbyn.

    My seat is fairly close between all three but has labour leading both with and without tactical voting.

    I suspect London wont be overly kind to the Tories but it's crazy times so who knows.

    Honestly I havenít really noticed the Tories sniping at the LDs, neither the party nor the supporters, but perhaps itís just because I donít pay much attention to them.

    Certainly feels like Labour are much more directly doing this.
    There is no one my Labour activist friends hate more than the Lib Dems (and Labour backbench MPs).

    I see so much more anti-LD stuff than anti-Tory stuff from them.

    That's the activist ones, the general semi-engaged are all about anti-Boris memes.

    I suppose it's easier up here - vote SNP, never Tory.
    I had the first ever political canvasser at my door on Saturday. Was literally on my way out the door so a curt reply was all they got that I wasn't interested but wish I had longer to ask how they could possible support, and expect me to support, the Tory party in Scotland.
    Got me in a grump for the rest of the day that did.

    @JamboWayOh Not sure how I'm the dick there, no need to be offensive.

    My point was, maybe look at your own use of offensive language before pulling other people up on it.

    And maybe I did look at my own use of language after that point in time? Maybe after someone else had mentioned it? Do you think that may have occurred possibly?

    I can't even tell if you're being genuine or a bit of a douche. I would hope the former.

    @JamboWayOh I'm being genuine. If someone has pulled you up on it before and you don't do it, then that's great.

    I used that tactical voting link. As I thought, a completely safe labour seat.

    I wish I was still registered at my parents house as it's a blue area, but could swing.

    Feel pretty helpless but will still vote.

    I've just checked my constituency (Meriden) and apparently the Conservatives hold 61% of the vote with Labour 2nd on 24%. I'm a little depressed at finding out everyone is so Tory around here. Still gonna vote though as it would be nice to reduce that share slightly.

    This election I'm really aware of how much more engaging it is to be in a marginal seat. There must be a depressing inevitability to living in a cunt stronghold

    Yeah - totally. I was surprised to learn today my seat is a marginal with advice being vote SNP to defeat the tory incumbent.

    Part of the reason I moved here is because it was a cunt stronghold as well.

    UKIP leader has only met a few racists in party, and they weren't seriously racist.

    I think the only people left in UKIP at this point are ex leaders anyway. Shame they got rid of Dick Braine tbh.

    I am in Chuka's old seat. Lambeth. Wonder if the Lib Dem's will manage to take it. Area feels quite red. Often a socialist party stall nead the station and I think there is an office near by i think.

    The manifesto includes a number of contentious pledges, including abolishing the Equalities and Human Rights Commission, scrapping hate crime guidelines, selling off the BBC and ensuring that only British people can work in the Civil Service.

    Also during the launch, Ukip campaign co-ordinator and animal welfare spokesperson Freddy Vachha invoked Winston Churchill as he vowed the party would fight an unspecified enemy ďon the beachesĒ.

    Doing really well on the whole not being racist.

    They really should just rebrand themselves to the BNP and be done with it. Still, they can be entertaining:

    Farage clearly didn;t understand the message (from BBC live election updates):

    Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage says it is "absolutely" right for him to talk about the London Bridge attack during his election campaign.

    Convicted terrorist Usman Khan stabbed two people to death on Friday - prompting a row between parties about why he had been released from prison half way through his sentence.

    Victim Jack Merritt's father, David Merritt has said he does not want his son's death to be used to promote "vile propagadanda".

    But addressing an event for supporters in Buckley, north Wales, Mr Farage says 74 convicted terrorists and 400 people who fought for Isis in Syria are "walking the streets".

    "The victim's father can say what he likes and take whatever view he likes. He's being charitable and decent in what he says," Mr Farage says.

    But he adds: "I promise you this, if we polled 1,000 people now and asked are you happy these 75 people are out on our streets, I know what the answer is."

    About 200 Brexit Party supporters gathered in the dance hall for the event, including several who wore knitted jumpers saying "Merry Brexmas".

    "Are you happy that 74 convicted ISIS (brown people) terrorists are out walking the streets eyeing your nan up for the slaughter? No/Bloody NO!"

    Wait is it 74 or 75? Did they miss someone, or is that the guy the shot recently?
