Easy done, especially when we often just half listen to the news in the background

They don't need a coalition really. They could always form a minority government.

Well the big reason for calling the election was because may thought she would get a bigger majority to help her negotiate brexit.

Thats the problem, trying to negotiate that on a majority will be very difficult

You're right, it could happen.
The opposition will no doubt argue that the people who voted for the Conservatives voted for Teresa May, as she and her team constantly said that. And of course, they would point out how much of a buffoon he is.

Yeah, with the DUP always backing them, for sure.

Here's an interesting thing.
Looking on the betting site, there is money coming in for the next PM.

May 8/15 Fair enough.
Corbyn 5/2 again, I can see that.
Boris Johnson 7/1 what the hell?
Amber Rudd 20/1 again....
David Davies 66/1 ??
Phil Hammond 66/1 ??

Tim Farron 1000/1 lmao


What gets me is, who knows what? Is there some inside money on a leadership challenge or a May resignation? 7/1 for Boris looks crazy short.


You can take Amber Rudd of the list.

It looks like she will loose her Hastings seat.

Elections have never been as interesting as the last couple of years, have they

I saw that, strange projections all round, I find it bizarre that the Tories can take seats from the SNP but lose seats to Labour.

Good riddance if true. Nothing but a Saudi Puppet.

I suppose a major plus from a Labour win under Corbyn is there would be no bloody Saudi sympathisers in the government.

never would have thought the torries would have been talking seats in Scotland, can't see it happening.


Some indyref "no" votes are going to the Tories. Some SNP voters, like me, have voted Labour because they're attracted by Corbyn. So the SNP are getting squeezed on both sides. Don't confuse that as a huge reduction in support for independence though. Plenty Labour voters tonight support independence, me included.

I thought 1997 was interesting but yeah i would say between this election the recent election in America and then brexit and indyref its been interesting.

Have I started writing in a foreign language tonight??

Only asking because quite a few members tonight seem to be totally misunderstanding what I am saying.

All I was saying was that I am surprised to see the tories forecasted to make gains in Scotland.

Never said anything about independence.

I don't see a minority government being in anyone's interests given Brexit negotiations being imminent and current events both domestically and globally.

Its not a time for weak government.

No surprise there. They don't want to kill off their already miniscule support. Their coalition with Cameron almost killed the party.

To be fair, this was always the way I looked at the Brexit issue.

My ideal state of affairs would have been to go for Brexit, and immediately divorce all right wingers from making any choices about any of the methods or the shape of the exit from the EU what so ever. In short, exit from the EU, managed by socialist principles, not corporatist or borderline fascist ones.


My ideal situation would be a strong Tory majority followed by an immediate leadership challenge and Boris getting the top job. That would be fantastic.

I think this is going to labour tonight.

I wish i had put a tenner on it at the start of the election.

Indeed.
A despicable woman.

No, just an IRA supporter.

As an aside, David Cameron and Gideon must be pissing themselves laughing tonight.
