    • What an astonishingly bad result. Unbelievable.

      It's time to admit that the UK isn't the liberal, democratic country we all like to think it is. It's run by billionaires, bigots and racists at the very top who can sway media, and brainwash those too lazy to research themselves... I just hope they can afford health care because they'll need to when the NHS is gone, and it WILL go.

      Indyref2 is an absolute certainty now.
      thank u, next

        Trying to smear and group all Brexiteers or conservative folks as racists etc etc etc is exactly why you keep losing, I think itís terrible how people speak about people on here and the mods thinking it is acceptable...

        Not really a fan of Boris but hopefully he will provide some movement with this Brexit malarkey as that is clearly what the majority want...

        • What an unexpected turnout.
          5.05.2009 / 6.22.2011 / 4.24.2013 / 4.25.2013 / 3.1.2014 / 9.13.2014 / 7.21.2016 / 7.14.2018 / 7.15.2018

          • How did the vote go in everyone's constituencies? I voted Labour and got a Labour MP.

              Some Brexiteers do have the flow of migrants on top of their priorities thus turning Brexit into a primitive idea of dealing with the migrants. But a lot of them fear to own that badge of dishonour and use coded & veiled language.
              What's more important, putting the blame on migrants the way Tory manifesto does can't be characterized as anything else.
              All kinds of evil politicians (both on authoritarian right & left) won multiple elections worldwide on the basis of propaganda, Machiavellian approach and scare tactics, but rarely have I seen such a clown at the helm. Zelenskiy was a comedian and also won in a landslide, but he looked less clown-ish.
              Essentially, the UK voted for a man lamenting the end of imperial rule over Africa.

              • I hope Tories ain't gonna add "one leader" part to that bravado.

                • What a disaster. So upset about the election. I really hope Labour get their act together and learn from this. I think a reflection period is important - Labour need to do some analysis and reflection before they choose their next leader. Scotland definitely needs an independence referendum, the climate in 2014 was just so different to now.

                      It's sad people get so stuck to being famous and powerful. He should have gone before the election, so Labour would have stood a better chance.

                      • Labour were at their most appealling when they were a centre-left party - Corbyn has taken them too far to the left.

                        Had Brexit not been a factor in this campaign, there's no way a Corbyn-led Labour would've gotten my vote.

                        He needs to go, and needs to be replaced by a - frankly - less socialist politician.

                          I'm not trying to smear all Brexiteers or conservatives. I'm talking about the people of Grimsby who changed from red to blue.

                                  Except it isn't what the majority want. More people voted for the other parties as a whole than did for the conservatives. Tories may have a majority in parliament thanks to the voters, but the reminder of the UK who believe in equality, acceptance and a fair government are much larger in numbers - and that proves that our entire political system does not work.

                                  Boris will definitely provide "movement" with Brexit. We will be out without a deal of any kind on January 31st, then he is free to start "trading" with Trump. The movement will not look like what you think it will. All he and his party have done is lie consistently for years and yet.... NOW HE'S TELLING THE TRUTH. Okay then.

                                    Why is that Wayne? I'm interested as to why people would rather an extreme right wing rather than left? I find it bizarre, but I want to know what's appealing about it.

                                      • According to the BBC, there are 5 things Boris needs to focus on...

                                        1. Get Brexit done, and trade agreed.
                                        2. Meet growing demands on the NHS.
                                        3. Tackle the social care crisis.
                                        4. Work to hit climate change targets.
                                        5. Transform the immigration system.

                                        They appear to have overlooked the need for him to completely transform the person he is.

                                          What's really terrible is the truth that most people voted leave for racist reasons (some obviously racist, some more latent) and not because of legitimate reasons to dislike the EU (like its institutional system not being democratic enough etc).

                                          Just because racists don't want to hear about being racist, doesn't mean we should excuse their behavior, let alone stop people from calling them out on it (I think that's what you're suggesting here). That's literally the fastest road to fascism.
