Rest I would leave to the people to decide

Conservative party just got their 326th seat which means it's official now. Cameron is in No. 10 for another term. Labour, Lib Dem and UKIP leaders all quit.

That's my point, the proposal was to take the most popular policies from both sides regardless of personal belief in order to create a winning party.

As soon as you start adding your own beliefs into the equation then your no different to the rest of them.

Can't say I'm not disappointed with that.

Whilst the vote share is promising, I can't deny feeling let down by only having a single ukip mp in Parliament and I'm truly gutted that Nige is standing down. He was brilliant, a real antidote to the other, lame duck leaders.

God only knows what the state of politics will be in this country in 5 years time.

But those seem to be the beliefs people want but the main parties ignore.

Well strong Labour areas bleeding votes to UKIP and the conservatives is one such proof.
Thats the only thing I can think of from the results in England.

That was a long and heavy night.

Another 5 years of regressing back to a Victorian like society along with all the social injustices and inequalities that go with it.
Another 5 years of....oh, what the hell - I can't be arsed.

Think I'll have a shower and go out, again, and drown my sorrows.

Hyperbole.

We are far from Victorian society we are still far better off than most the world and even our American cousins.

If labour lost it was from piss poor policy's.

a reply to: crazyewok

The Labour campaign was weak and ineffective - just like Miliband.
I have very little sympathy for them.

Clegg and the LibDems got exactly what they deserved.

I dislike Cameron and everything he stands for and represents.

I could whinge on about the most biased and one-sided reporting on an election that I've ever seen in my almost 50 years or about how its morally wrong that a party can register nearly 4 million votes and 12.7% of the popular vote yet only gain 1 seat in parliament.
Blah blah blah.

That's not sour grapes - I've long advocated both electoral and parliamentary reform.

But to be honest, I simply can't be arsed today.

I'm going to have some scran, then a shower and shave etc and then go out for a few pints, play some pool and talk bollocks to my mates and have a bit of laugh.

Tomorrow is another day my friend.

oh no no no burnham please no. What a slimeball. Pfi and did his best to introduce fluoride to fluoride free areas.
I diddnt think labour could find anybody worse than gordon brown but they did. Hell yeah what a unlikable man. Labour has been destroyed from within.
Tom Watson should now lead the party. The people with integrity in labour party tend to have an untimely death. I.e John Smith and Robin Cook. The labour mps and councillors became complacent ,out of touch and quite frankly corrupt. Unfortunatly devolution and money going to the regions will through incompetence and corruption leave traditional labour areas resembling Detroit.
As for a referendum on Europe ? Forget it. National debt and borrowing needs growth and you can only guarantee growth with a growing population.
So the status quo agender will continue like it has for decades. The rich gets richer the poor gets poorer, wages will stagnate and the influence of unions will erode.
At least the greedy higher rate tax payers will be happy and so will housing association tenants whose mortgages will be half of the rent they currently pay.

I certainly won't be getting depressed about the result or start naval gazing about the future. I think what I've learnt in my life is, not much ever changes whoever is in power just as world events and the national news rarely effects our lives despite the prominence of it in our lives.

and if there are changes even dramatic changes in life you just get on with it and accept the circumstances your in. Things could always be worse

I think if Cameron holds a referendum, he will manage to obtain a vote for no change.
Remember, he's pulled that trick twice already.

It looks like the SNP have cleaned up . I expect that their will be another Referendum on Scotland becoming independent. Now all we want is for England to become independent of the fascists that have stolen everything. If Socialism gets really stuck in over the Border. With any luck all the talent will go for free healthcare and education, north of the border, and give England the two fingers.


I would do if only the weather was better
- far nicer people, politics and you don't constantly get called scum for being disabled.

Busy looking at emigrating to France, Eastern Europe or China as I'll get several times the wage in advanced Maths based work for a fraction of the hours and will actually be able to recieve healthcare (been waiting 19 months for an MRI after traumatic brain injury under ConDem) and last nights results would have pushed it back another few years considering they're selling the services to Branson/Virgin but branding it 'NHS Care' and making staff wear NHS uniforms to stop the public noticing.

How come you can work in another country but not here?

Exactly mate - it's a disgrace and those who voted for this ought to be ashamed.
In a couple of years when they can't get a GP appointment or their relatives have a terrible time in hospital and friends and neighbours are all using foodbanks...maybe then they'll regret voting for a party who only care about those at the top.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________



To be fair this is on Labour...I said months ago (maybe a year ago?) that the two Ed's needed to go and Milliband despite ideologically being a great man, was just not electable.... and Ed Balls was a liability.
I think the undecideds got to the polls and thought "I just can't vote Labour"

Farage (the ****) and Ed Balls both lost their seats though, as did many other self-serving career politicians.
Thankfully Clegg gone too... utter bellend.
Every cloud and all that.

But yes... this is a sad, desperate and dark day for this country.
More poor, vulnerable and disabled will now suffer and many will have their lives torn apart.
Food bank use will continue to grow and more children will be pushed below the poverty line (already at a record high)
The richest will continue to get richer and the educational gap between rich and poor children will continue to widen at an alarming rate.

People have been lied to and duped by a Murdoch press... Rupert Murdoch.
This was the most personal and vindictive campaign and the bias was unbelievable but hey, when the elite know that their days could be numbered, when the billionaires and Tax Dodgers need to mobilize, they can rely on the gutter press to have their backs... and boy do they come out swinging.

Meh...

You've Sh*t the bed... now lie in it.
