All the big swings going to labour
Feckin Scotland might return the tories yet.
Nick Clegg gone
Rudd survives by 345 votes
May’s bacon to be saved by the DUP?
The mainland won’t tolerate the Neanderthal social views, amongst other things, of the DUP. And the DUP themselves are more used to saying no than yes. It’s in their DNA. Another election within the year I reckon. And maybe even a second referendum.
The UK have got themselves in an awful mess. May’s position is untenable.
And the clock is ticking on Brexit.
Unto the breach Boris!
The DUP. Jesus.
Huge young vote, finally.
Sad to see the north still seems to vote on identity lines rather than socio-economic issues.
SDLP wiped out. UUP also. everyone gone to the poles.
Sinn Fein could stop a DUP/Tory alliance getting a majority but they’d have to take their seats in westminster …
Corbyn, the “unelectable”, terrorist-loving loony, garnered more votes for Labour than Tony Blair did in two of his three election victories. The idea that Labour can be a force only if it abandons its social democratic roots has been overturned. A radical social democratic manifesto transformed the election and gave the young and the marginalised a reason to vote.
-. Fintan O’Toole
surely they wont do something stupid like sticking that arsehole in - that’d just annoy people more, they badly need some new blood, the scottish conservatives saved their bacon, their leader up there seems competent, how about her?
Another election , probably not with May in charge .
Is a second second referendum likely ? Or even possible at this stage .
I’d be amazed if he is stupid enough to put his name forward, they are in a jock now.
Not going to happen but there are a range of different arguments for them to do so. SF are strategic, I’m sure they are weighting it all up, but it will still be a no I reckon.

Would not agree with that at all. Labour policies did not have people flocking back to them … more they were running from the Tories no matter what …
Sure they were tripping over policy costs and budgets all through the campaign
May was a clucking disaster.
Do think Labours manifesto got the young motivated, free edumacuation etc.
Certainly an anti-Tory element, and probably a backlash against the undisguised media bias, but I believe Lab focus on public services played the larger part in it.
May speech at 10am.
She’s mental if she thinks she can stay on. Davis and Boris will challenge her today if she does.
