Election period timetable

6 November - Parliament dissolved
Parliament will be officially dissolved shortly after midnight and suspended from the start of the following day.

This will trigger the five week campaign period before the polling date and, as dictated by election laws, MPs will not sit in the Commons for 25 working days in the lead-up to the vote.

This also marks the beginning of "purdah", the  pre-election period during which there are restrictions on what civil servants are allowed to do.

They must continue to work but must avoid anything that could influence the election - such as by publishing a press release promoting the governing party - or that could call into question their impartiality.

During this time the governing party should not make any long term plans or policy decisions for the country unless deemed necessary.

7 November - Receipt of writ
The election writ - the legal documents authorise the holding of a general election or by-election - is issued declaring a vote will be held in each constituency.

11 November - Notice of election
The publication of notice of election must be given in constituencies no later than 4pm

14 November - Candidates' deadline
All candidates wishing to stand in the election must have submitted their nomination papers by 4pm in order to stand in the election.

This is also the deadline for those withdrawing from the election race or for anyone wishing to make an objection to a candidate standing.

16 November - Candidate lists published
Once all the nominations have been received and confirmed, the final lists of candidates will be published.

You will be able to see the list of who is standing in your constituency by looking on your local authority website or on a noticeboard in their offices, where the names should be published.

26 November - Voter registration deadline
The final deadline to register to vote for the election, which you can do by visiting the Government website, is at midnight.

If you do not register to vote by this date you will not be able to vote in the election on 12 December.

The deadline for those wishing to apply for postal voting for the first time, or for those wishing to change preferences for proxy voting, is at 5pm.

3 December - NATO Summit
From 3 to 4 December the 2019 NATO Summit will take place in London.

This will mean that the world's leaders - including US President Trump and European leaders - will descend on the capital whilst MPs are in full campaign flow and just a week before the final vote.

4 December - Proxy voting deadline
The deadline for those wishing to apply to vote by proxy for the first time is 5pm.

There is scope to vote by proxy if you have not applied by this date if you suffer from an emergency which will prevent you from voting.

12 December - Polling day
The polls will open from 7.00 am to 10.00 pm.

After they close at 10.00 pm exit polls will be published which will give the first indication as to what the final result will be.

The results will then be published throughout the night and early hours of the morning.

13 December - Result
By mid-morning the following day we will know what the next Parliament is going to look like.

If no majority is won the leader of the biggest party will enter into talks with others about forming a coalition government or a confidence and supply arrangement.

Nigel Farage says the Brexit Party will NOT stand against the Tories in the general election - but WILL target Labour-held seats. Not that it would of made much difference to the vote in Hereford and South Herefordshire seat. Although it would have been nice to vote BREXIT because all the others are a waste of time. I just hope Boris stands by his promise to get us out of the EU, although his BREXIT is not a no deal, but one with strings attached.

Denise is struggling! Who isn’t! I’ve come to the conclusion that you may as well vote for the Candidate who’s least likely to burgle your home and steal all your belongings or accost you outside the Commercial Ale House and beat you senseless for absolutely no reason at all.

Irrational? Perhaps. But it’s no more or less irrational than voting for the oily, yellow bellied tw.at who promises you it all and then delivers you nothing. Voting for them and believing their pledges is an irrationality in itself and so, if I vote, and frankly at the moment I can’t be bloody bothered, I’ll vote for the Candidate who’s got the Far Away Messianic Christ Like Eyes who just might be carrying the marks of the Holy Stigmata that suggests to stupid gullible idiots like me that Jesus has returned for a second time.

Here are the candidates for the forthcoming election - all leavers except Jesse Norman who follows his leader religiously, but can you trust him to get us out? Looks like I won't be voting as it is appears to be a second referendum with no real BREXIT leaver on the ballot paper. Always thought we lived in a banana republic. Shouldn't be long before we are shafted and annexed to the EU just in time to pay our next financial instalments to cover the creation of an EU army and when the financial crash returns, bailing out the EU Banks when they crash.

These catalogs of events reinforce my reason for leaving - Courtesy of Slog commentator Gulagirid. Notice the Brexit Party beginning to highlight EU military unification.

The signing of the Treaty of Lisbon took place in Lisbon, Portugal on 13 December 2007.


1: The UK along with all existing members of the EU lose their abstention veto in 2020 as laid down in the Lisbon Treaty when the system changes to that of majority acceptance with no abstentions or veto’s being allowed.

2: All member nations will become states of the new federal nation of the EU by 2022 as clearly laid out in the Lisbon treaty with no exceptions or veto’s.

3: All member states must adopt the Euro by 2022 and any new member state must do so within 2 years of joining the EU as laid down in the Lisbon treaty.

4: The London stock exchange will move to Frankfurt in 2020 and be integrated into the EU stock exchange resulting in a loss of 200,000 plus jobs in the UK because of the relocation. (This has already been pre-agreed and is only on a holding pattern due to the Brexit negotiations, which if Brexit does happen, the move is fully cancelled – but if not and the UK remains a member it’s full steam ahead for the move.)

5: The EU Parliament and ECJ become supreme over all legislative bodies of the UK

6: The UK will adopt 100% of whatever the EU Parliament and ECJ lays down without any means of abstention or veto, negating the need for the UK to have the Lords or even the Commons as we know it today.

7: The UK will NOT be able to make its own trade deals.

8: The UK will NOT be able to set its own trade tariffs.

9: The UK will NOT be able to set its own trade quotas.

10: The UK loses control of its fishing rights

11: The UK loses control of its oil and gas rights

12: The UK loses control of its borders and enters the Schengen region by 2022 – as clearly laid down in the Lisbon treaty

13: The UK loses control of its planning legislation

14: The UK loses control of its armed forces including its nuclear deterrent

15: The UK loses full control of its taxation policy

16: The UK loses the ability to create its own laws and to implement them

17: The UK loses its standing in the Commonwealths

18: The UK loses control of any provinces or affiliated nations e.g.: Falklands, Cayman Islands, Gibraltar etc

19: The UK loses control of its judicial system

20: The UK loses control of its international policy

21: The UK loses full control of its national policy

22: The UK loses its right to call itself a nation in its own right.

23: The UK loses control of its space exploration program

24: The UK loses control of its Aviation and Sea lane jurisdiction

25: The UK loses its rebate in 2020 as laid down in the Lisbon treaty

26: The UK’s contribution to the EU is set to increase by an average of £1.2bn pa and by £2.3bn pa by 2020

With thanks to ‘UK in a Changing Europe’ and Professor Steve Peers for their help.

Looks like we are going to go down the plug hole if we stay in.

Posted from Brexit is finished:


Many years ago in the 1970s, I purchased a book in a junk shop - EF Schumacher's "Small is Beautiful". ironically his book came out on the eve of the vote on the European Common Market in 1975 – but he believed such scale led to a dehumanisation of people and the economic systems that ordered their lives. You don't come much bigger than the flatulated EU.

Many of the issues Schumacher raises we are still wrestling with. He questioned the shibboleth of economic growth as the central preoccupation of politics; he talked of resource constraints on economic development. Above all, he insisted again and again that human happiness would not be achieved through material wealth. 

Its such a shame that many of our national and european politicians only seek to increase their own material wealth to the detriment of those around them. What Schumacher wanted was a people-centred economics because that would, in his view, enable environmental and human sustainability.

Earlier than this, in 1957, E F Schumacher's tutor Leopold Kohr’s published his most popular work "The Breakdown of Nations"

“… there seems to be only one cause behind all forms of social misery: bigness. Oversimplified as this may seem, we shall find the idea more easily acceptable if we consider that bigness, or oversize, is really much more than just a social problem. It appears to be the one and only problem permeating all creation.

Whenever something is wrong, something is too big. … And if the body of a people becomes diseased with the fever of aggression, brutality, collectivism, or massive idiocy, it is not because it has fallen victim to bad leadership or mental derangement. It is because human beings, so charming as individuals or in small aggregations, have been welded into over concentrated social units”.

How true this is today where systems are side lining the individual for the pursuit of so called efficiencies when in reality all they do is hamper, frustrate and ignore that person creating a futile environment.

It depends on which facts you want to believe. Personally I'll make my own mind up and leave others to decide themselves.

Had my Jesse leaflet through the door now - surprised to see him claiming credit for "£23m investment under way at the old boys school on Blackfriars St by NMITE ..." Jeez, as if they haven't spent enough on the site already! It is, of course, (I hope) a mistake, but it's not good enough. Overleaf, he claims his campaign has won £23m of government funding for NMITE - a different story altogether. By coincidence he also claims credit for a £23m programme at the County. So how accurate are these and other claims?!
