4th July?...Ah, yes - UK General Election Day. I knew there was some reason, or other, to remember the date... ;)

But seriously, folks - hope all at WNFF have a pleasant day. :D

Thanks.

How can they have an election in the middle of the Euros. And Wimbledon.

Sunak is setting up televisions in the lines outside polling places with the hope it generates some sympathy, if not turnout. Of course, Southgate is trying to spoil the plan.

Without wanting to get too political, PM Sunak has shown that he must have some sense of humor. He's given the whole nation the biggest laugh it's had in years, with the following gem...

'I think I'll still be PM after the election...'  :hysterical:

there is the time to count the vote, so he's right for a half an hour or so.
