    I want the political class in Germany to apologize and make us carbon neutral in the next 10 years. Otherwise, I hope they all rot in hell.

    let's stop the genocide on all living things!!!!
    Of course. My vote usually goes to the green party or the animal party.
    But this time I voted for another party as they had the best leading man.
    But it's a party that is closest to the green party of all the big parties.

    This is nowhere near as bad as expected, right?

    Labour needs get rid of Corbyn and back a second referendum already.

    It’s pretty bad actually - the ruling political party has been utterly obliterated this far, winning just 2 out of 73 seats thus far. In comparison, the Brexit Party - a brand new political party - has 21 seats and not all are declared yet. In context, the party currently in second place only has 10 seats, and they too were utterly obliterated in last UK general election (Lib Dems).

    The UK is speaking and it is not pretty - both main political parties are losing. To put into perspective, the Brexit Party has won seats in every constituency to declare this far (8 out of 12). No other party has achieved that.

    To those wondering what a second referendum could look like, this vote is the closest we are likely to get to one (without one) and it clearly demonstrates a passion for Brexit.

    Labour has seriously damaged itself over the last few years. First we had that fool Ed Miliband and then Corbyn - both incredibly poor politicians and without a single ounce of leadership or charisma. Labour must surely regret the day it opted for Ed instead of David Miliband, as David imo was always the clear successor to the Blair/Brown years.

    Personally I think Labour is done for now. I dread the next general election as I doubt anyone will get a clear majority.

    Straw clutching but the only way to settle this appears to be a 2nd referendum...

    In Portugal the extreme right wing party coalition got zero seats. Success

    Lib Dems could really capitalise on this position if they elect a strong new leader. Shame to see the voters still so split on Brexit, yet unsurprising.

    My favourite parties always lose so I feel like my votes don't mean anything but this time it did as my chosen party got over 6% and is therefore bringing 3 people into the Parliament, which is already a big success for Poland, known to be a country where 2 parties always rule.
