Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Media making "large turn-out" noises which favors Labour -- or so I am told.

"It's Happening," Declares Jeremy Corbyn as Early UK Election Reports Suggest "Longest Queues Ever"

seems so. I'm hearing lot of stuff on FB about huge queues for voting (150 yards at one polling station at 7:15 this morning). Queueing isn't normal at UK polling stations as we tend to have quite a few.

But it ain't over till it's over.

I imagine beer will be taken later just to calm my nerves

The 14,000-square-foot facility will include a taproom with panoramic rooftop deck, an outdoor food court with eight vendors, and an outdoor community event center that will be the "first of its kind" in the city, according to a statement from brewery founder and president Todd Baldwin.

Yet the decade runs out at the end of 2020, does a major national newspaper in the same group as the always factual Daily Mail not know that?

Here's keeping the fingers crossed that at minimum BoJo is deprived of a majority. A Labour-led minority government with a promise of a second referendum would be quite the harbinger. We'll see. Not counting any chickens just yet.
