So the election will be decided by people not very committed to any party and who probably don't think much about politics or politicians and who probably haven't made up their minds to vote, and if so, how.
So who do you vote for if you are generally pissed of with politics and Brexit and all that shite? The Brexit party was a handy vehicle for that protest vote the last time around. Farage seemed to annoy the establishment and upset the apple-cart.
But now he has joined the establishment by supporting BoJo and self-impaled his own party. Isn't he Trump's guy?
Brexit - which was an anti-austerity, anti-immigrant, anti-government, anti-everything - protest has become a monumental bore. People don't so much want to get it done as get rid of it altogether.
Also the economy doesn't seem to be going quite as well as it was. Public services are still starved of funds, the High streets are dying and nothing seems to improve.
Oh, and by the way the Tories have been in power - like forever. Cameron, May, Boris - the names change but has anything changed for the better recently? Haven't they had enough chances to get things done?
OK some people - like that bloke Rees-Smug seem to be doing very well, but hasn't he reinvested his funds in Ireland? Who's looking out for the little guy?
Is it not time to give that other guy - whatshisname - a go? He seems to annoy the establishment even more. He seems like a grumpy old man, buts that exactly how a lot of people feel right now.
What time's the match?
