    Alas few seem to be looking beyond the Brexit issue at this general election, all other normal general election issues seems to be playing a poor second fiddle to it. Up here it's more Independence ref 2 voting that's still the over-riding issue as we can do nothing about Brexit as part of UK.
    People will be voting for parties alien to them normally just to try and swing these 2 issues.

    We need to get past these 2 very divisive issues ASAP for any kind of progress.

    If Surrey is revolting, things must be pretty bad in Toryland.

    Good to see the Tories want to bring back foxhunting.
    Should never have been banned in the first place.

    Probably the least efficient way of killing vermin but still worthwhile and quite an economic boost to rural life.

    Blimey, that'll set the cat amongst the pigeons.... or hounds amongst , eh... the um foxes...

    I know our MP was taking about this during the coalition.... no chance with the Libdums around.

    We have a Hunt in our village, lots of job depended on it. Funny thing fox-hunting. Not something I'd do myself and I've never had the need to chase wild animals while wearing funny clothes!! And not the most efficient way of killing foxes. Also, I've seen many hen houses after fox has visited!

    I am also sure many anti hunt folk think "class war" before "animal rights!"

    Ho hum....not a priority for the Govt Mrs May surely.

    This. Appalling past time. I hope this doesn't get past the thinking about it stage. There are better ways of creating jobs than the pursuit of mutilating animals.

    WRONG

    In the recent local council elections - three seats were contested in my town. All were previously held by conservatives. They lost two of them and held on to the third by 60 votes. The constituency of South West Surrey is primarily made up of the Borough of Waverley...in the EU Referendum the result was...

    The turnout was 82.3%.

    The total number of ballot papers counted was 75,999
    The total number of votes cast in favour of REMAIN was 44,241
    The total number of votes cast in favour of LEAVE was 31,601
    The total number of ballot papers rejected was 57

    Whilst Hunt had a huge majority last election - that was in the wake of LibDems in coalition with the Tories and given the LibDem Student Loans farrago. But back in 2001 the GE result had the Tories winning the seat by a majority of 861 (turnout 70%/50,000 votes cast); then in 2005 Tories winning the seat by a majority of 5711 (turnout 72%/52,500 votes cast).

    Jeremy Hunt may currently have a large majority - but there is a huge latent non-Tory vote. And what with Brexit and the state of the NHS our dear Jeremy has a bit of work to do.
