Labour to win? Surely not...
Jun 09, 2017, 02:19
Looking bloody close though. 10% swing to Labour in London puts a lot of seats in their reach. This country... Looks like I'll be up all night. Bottle of whisky to hand, why not.

Early days.
Corbyn has restored hope and inspired the young voters. Everyone said it was just Labour Party activists and not real people...but now they're going to have to eat their words. All those opportunist Labour MPs who put Corbyn down on the national media and stabbed him him the back should hang their heads.
Socialism is still relevant in England.

Weirdly it looks like the Scots voting for the Tories might keep them in power nationally. Hope I'm wrong.
If the Scots dumped the SNP and voted Labour we'd have a proper government.

If not now, later (a few months). Kept on telling people recently not to underestimate Corby's Pied Piper qualities. Think they may have thought that was a Yewtree thang,

Ruth Davidson as leader of the Conservatives within two years? They're crafty buggers.

Wouldn't it be interesting if Sinn Fein decided to take up their seats in Westminster?

That's the trouble with hubris, it always crumbles.

Tories cannot get an overall majority now. Might form govt with DUP. That sounds like a coalition of chaos to me.

It seems UK has rejected hard Brexit. Now any deal will need cross-party support and to recognise the concerns of the 48% "losers".

May will probably be gone this morning. Kezia Dugdale should resign too, urging Scots to vote Tory.

Diane Abbott and Corbyn both returned with increased majorities, their constituents saw past the Tory media smear campaigns.

Next PM - Boris? Rudd? Hunt?

We'll have another election within a year I guess.

Absolute disastrous campaign by Theresa May, she'll hopfully get what she deserves. A hung parliament is an astonishing result considering the Labour starting point of this election and the public percerption of Corbyn.

The worst scenario - a hung parliament!

Firstly though, let me congratulate the Labour party and all their supporters here for putting up such a good fight without actually winning. Without a doubt theirs was far better campaign than the conservatives who's leader was far too over confident. If she remains as our PM maybe she will have learnt to not be so casual about things in future. She took on all before her when continually being blocked into triggering Article 50 but let her own self-belief get the better of her by not campaigning forcefully enough.

I voted in this election with one aim in mind as you know - Brexit, because I believe the conservatives who already had their finger on the trigger, were well prepared to negotiate our way out of Europe - and I still do.

They are still there of course and as they no doubt will call upon the DUP, will have a party that also wanted out so that is a plus for them.

Whatever, they are still here and I hope they learn from their mistakes and looking at the long term - which we all have to - give us what the opposition were offering which they weren't, or we know what will happen next time!

That's my take on it anyway so will leave it at that and now stay silent, other than again say well done to the Labour supporters who got so close.
