Fear and loathing ahead of the British election

Fear and loathing ahead of the British election | Press coverage | Scoop.it
A month away from another national election, British voters aren't exactly gushing with excitement. According to a poll released by YouGov on Monday, positive sentiment about the vote is scarce, with just 7 percent of the country admitting to feeling enthusiastic, let alone excited (5 percent) or proud (1 percent) about the upcoming election.
Instead, the atmosphere is one of fear and loathing. A quarter of the country actually said they would use the word "fear" to describe their feelings about the vote. Fifteen percent said they felt anger, while 14 percent said they were simply confused. And whether through aloofness or despondence, 27 percent said none of the words offered matched their feelings.
This grim appraisal of Britain's election, due to be held Dec. 12, reflects the fact that for so many, the election reflects not progress but gridlock.
This is the second early election that has been called in just over two years and much of the political debate still revolves around Britain's plan to leave the European Union, which was voted on in June 2016 but lingers, forever debated and delayed. All this, despite the fact that an average of opinion polls from a variety of sources now consistently suggest that a majority of Brits no longer want to leave the E.U.
The impact of Brexit on the election was made clear on Monday when Nigel Farage, activist and leader of the upstart Brexit Party, announced that he would not field candidates in seats held by Prime Minister Boris Johnson's Conservative government. The move, which Farage suggested was a unilateral alliance to stop a second Brexit referendum, appeared likely to help Johnson win a majority in Parliament.
Opponents of the government now argue they need to band together themselves. Even if these pro-Remain groups can't formally come together, the battle line
