Lol he flip flops on policies


Already proven to be Tory planted establishment media fake news.



HE IS NOT FORMING ANY GOVERNMENT, HE LOST THE ELECTION TO BE LEADER OF THE UK
LMFAO


Seriously?


Jeremy Corbyn’s team is making preparations for an alternative Queen’s speech to challenge Theresa May’s right to govern, as the Labour leader emerged from the election strengthened by wins across the country.
www.theguardian.com...





May is forming a government, she won, just lost more tackles in the match



A chastened Theresa May has apologised to her party colleagues, after squandering the Conservatives’ majority with an ill-fated snap general election, forcing her to turn to Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist party for backing

www.theguardian.com...


May cannot guarantee all DUP MP's will vote with her and given how many of her own MP's she has pissed off, she cannot guarantee their vote either. Weak indeed.

By the way, tackles in a football match often gain penalty and fyi, no need to shout.

Yorkshirelad is just an angry northern bloke who cries about anything reasonable from what I see, never friendly, just aggressive socialist northern anger.

So let me get this straight, Jeremy Corbyn is supposed to be a 'terrorist sympathiser' so, DO NOT vote Labour.
Now Theresa May has announced that she will form a government majority with the help of DUP.

They could disband the DUP/comnservative govt in a heartbeat by bull#ting the queen at the oath for political reasons and attending parliament.
Easier than killing people to stop a con/dup govt, but ego comes into it, can't be seen to bull# the authority system, just shoot or kneecap people insted. scum.


Tory/DUP coalition would have majority (just) regardless of Sin From taking their seats or not.

My guess is nobody else would coalesce with the Tories and May's hubris blinded her to potential hypocrisy of partnering with DUP/UDA whilst condemning extremism of other ideologies.

I think it's a case of any port in a storm , faced with getting into bed with the DUP or taking the long walk to the job centre the DUP seemed like the only option.

Strong and stable leadership.

Do you not think that Corbyn promising to wipe clean student debt and make higher education free for all going forward was a bribe?

500k students per year with upto £40k of debt written off? That's pretty much everyone thinking of or at university voting labour. All you guys and gals over in the US reading this - do you think your youth would vote for a presidential candidate offering the same. Of course they would. How many extra votes is that for a policy that would in the end bankrupt the country.

The guy is a backer of freedom fighters (terrorists) has no idea of how to protect our country and is hoping to hop in bed with the SNP. The man is a disaster, a charlatan who has cheated, lied and manipulated the youth to give him A semblance of popularity. I was a member of Unite for 20 years even though there wasn't a union where I worked - just because I believed it contributed something. I cancelled the day that muppet was selected as labour leader.

Equally May has to go, she is a disaster but if the only option is Boris - hell no!

The UK needs a strong PM, neither Corbyn or May are up to it. The list is short.

Well, he was talking about this specific election and it's hard to see where he's wrong. The purpose of this election was to strengthen the position of the UK in BREXIT negotiations and people went out and voted based on a myriad of other things, which ended up undermining the negotiating position of their own country.

That said, May was a complete moron for calling this election. The whole idea that people were going to come out and vote conservative for a single (even if it was a smart) reason, was asinine.

If it has been answered apologies.... You need 326 seats to form a UK government. Anything less means when it comes to "BILLS"(Policies) being pass into law or action then 326 means your voting power within parliament cannot be beat(unless you have backbench rebellions).

It's all about the numbers she wanted more for her party to instigate a HARD Brexit(Article 50) but she lost seats instead of gaining them so her government is now very weak in comparison, in fact it is fractured and the Tories are a blood thirsty lot. Theresa May's days are numbered... The DUP alliance for many of her party is a very bitter pill, it will serve as a enema to her leadership.

Yep ,it's a shady situation indeed that could have serious consequences for the peace process.
Personally I think it better she goes now rather than later and we lance this boil before infection sets in.

Well it seems to be close to official - the DUP are going to hold the balance of power.
