As a final point on this, I am in no doubt how utterly tragic and devastating what has just happened is. It has governed all my thoughts, fears and comments in this election. This country, as a whole, all of us, have either played our part in getting to this place or not been effective enough in avoiding it.

 

The way out now is not for people to point at everyone else and say “This is your fucking fault” and for us all to divide further.

 

The way out is for people to point at themselves, say “This is all of our fault”, or at the very least “We are all in this together”, and work together to fix it. However, whenever and through whatever compromise. 

 

I have no idea how that will look, no answers as to what form or tactics it will take on this bleakest of all nights. But we have been had off, divided, dissembled and set against one another in the service of Johnson, Trump, Putin, Farage, etc. The results of that division could not be any clearer, we will all suffer to some degree or other. 
 

More of the same isn’t going to work.

I love the sentiment of that post mate I really do but that line doesn't fit. At all. 

 

"we are all in the shit apart from the elite who quite frankly couldn't give two fucks and are as we speak popping the champagne and sneering at those of us who really really fucking care"

You do, mate. You know EXACTLY why he's celebrating.

Because he doesn't give a fuck about any of this stuff? Because he's an utterly hateful fucking cunt? Because he's relatively well off so it won't affect him? Because he's seemingly utterly devoid of empathy? Because trolling on the internet is more important to him that the inevitable appalling consequences of this vote?

 

For fuck sake, just put the spiteful, snide, cretinous fucking cunt on ignore. Everyone.

I mean everyone bar that group of people, as I have said and imitated right through this. They are very few. It has ever been thus.

That's a good start, Jair. Yep. 

 

And yeah, I'll put him on ignore now. 

 

Actually, we should all do it. Anybody else in?

I wouldn't say they are done for. The Tories now have to oversee Brexit and the transition period which will end up just as messy as the initial deal agreement or worse. A no Deal Brexit is possible as many have said, but that would be a disaster. Tories may act the cunts for so long, but it could be their party that suffers more in the long run. 

After 10 years of austerity and Tory rule and an election which showed Johnson up to be a sociopathic buffoon, people still vote for them and him. Labour are fucked. Stronts makes a pertinent point about Labour, they've had one electable leader in 45 years: Blair. Britain doesn't want socialism, it doesn't want social democracy, we want society-destroying, austerity politics lead by a populist with a funny hair cut. Leaving the EU is just another way to dress up the idiocy, naivety and prejudice most people feel and this election result has/will compound that.

What would your Brexit strategy for Labour have been ?

 

To uphold the referendum result. Regardless of which way you voted, it was a democratic vote that wasn't upheld.

 

Their plan to get a new deal in 3 months and then put it back to the people while remaining neutral was a fucking joke.

 

Going to be interesting to see which seats they have lost and whether or not those seats voted heavily to leave the EU.

 

My guess is that will be the case.

 

Don't forget they blocked Brexit from getting through Parliament countless times, hence where the frustration was from those who voted to leave.

 

All they had to do and say is that yes Johnson's deal is atrocious, which it is, and we'll get you a much better one, but we're leaving as per the referendum.

I’m not sure what you are getting into Labour for SD, your party fought an absolutely pathetic campaign and are mired in sheer nothingness, surely your recriminations should start closer to home.

 

I don't think it was bad at all, the electorate were given a clear Remain message and have largely rejected it. We haven't seen the results yet but there'll be a lot more second places than last time, so a platform for the next election, at least. Unfortunately voters have been so scared of a Corbyn-led government they've plumped for the devil they know. C'est la vie.

I suppose the one bright spot is that Gnasher has got his Michael Foot moment.

If the exit poll is correct, you're doing Foot a disservice...

You’ve been a proper prick here tonight Steve.

 

There can’t be any possible pretence left you’re here for anything other than winding people up.


Its a shame, because there’s a decent side to you but this is pathetic behaviour.

I’ve maintained from the start that Labour should’ve backed Leave, as it was always a much easier position to defend.

That would certainly have helped in the Leave areas but they would have lost even more ground in the remain areas and been forced to accept a Conservative Brexit offering that went against every principle the party holds.

(For all those who haven’t got me on ignore I’m imagining this as an episode of Take Me Out when the male contestant tells the women he lives with his mum and all the lights start going out).

There is a reason the rich and powerful hold the working class in such contempt.

Tonight has proved it.

 

While the media have been a disgrace never, ever underestimate the ability of the poor to vote against their own economic self interest.

    • 3 more games like that? That should make the season finale a lot more fun.
    • Jürgen Klopp has given fulsome praise to his players as Liverpool had to fight exceptionally hard to record their 18th straight league win after a 3-2 victory against West Ham on Monday night.

      The home fans walking into Anfield would have by and large expected a routine victory against a side who are battling to hold onto their Premier League status.

      And when Gini Wijnaldum scored from a flowing move within the ten minute mark, it appeared that the Reds would stroll to another three points.

      However the Hammers who have just one league win in 2020 and whose fans are in uproar over the current ownership of the East London club, were in the mood to cause some uncomfortable moments for the home side and equalised through a Issa Diop header which went through Alisson.

      They then took a shock lead early in the second half when substitute Pablo Fornals smartly turned the ball home and any discussion of a routine evening at the office was now well and truly on the back burner.

      During this winning run in the league, Liverpool have had their hurdles to overcome and this was another one.

      While they were not at their fluid best, they found a way again with goals by Mo Salah (via a Lukasz Fabianski howler) and Sadio Mane. 

      Speaking after the game as the Reds equaled the consecutive league victory mark set by Man City, Klopp said he continues to be be amazed by the ability of his squad to perform game after game.

      The Echo reported the manager as saying:

      A couple of years ago, maybe at the beginning of my time here, I said we wanted to write our own stories and create our own history.

      “Obviously the boys have taken that really seriously, when I said that!

      “It’s all cool, but not too important at the moment. 

      “I never thought it would ( the consecutive wins) would bebroken or equalled We did it and I cannot believe it happened to be honest.

      “It’s so special. The numbers are incredible, so difficult.

      “We have spoken about wonderful games and hard games, and it was a difficult one tonight. 

      “You can only get those numbers by winning all those games. The brilliant ones, the rougher ones, the more grumpy ones.”

      “That’s what counts. 

      We all know that it’s very special, but at the moment we are just in the situation and want to recover and want to prepare for the next one.”  

      Despite also battling for their Premier League survival, Klopp said the next clash against Watford on Saturday evening will a considerable challenge.

      “The next three points are always the hardest. 

      “It’s always been like this. It would be strange if we said anything different. 

      “The next 12 points will be difficult because they are difficult, you saw that tonight.

      “The next opponent is waiting, the whole stadium at Watford will go for us. It’s completely normal. It will be a special atmosphere and we have to be 100% ready.

      “I saw them against United and they played really well here because at the moment everybody is fighting for everything.

      “I saw the boys tonight, they are really ready to fight. 

      “As long as we have that then nobody should worry, but we really have a lot of work still to do.”   Klopp also a special mention for the crowd after the 21st successive home league win.

      “We have to be ready for the hardest work as a unit, and we were there again together with the crowd tonight, I loved that fact. 

      “Whatever will happen this season is an effort of all of us. I could not be more thankful or appreciate the support we get.   "So far so good."

    • If Lallana's leaving then Naby needs to stay so he can take over as stringvest's favourite player.
    • Amendment to earlier post - he also looked very good at the start against Barcelona at the Nou Camp. Of course he then went off injured, and the reshuffle led directly to their first goal. His injury record feels like it puts Harry Kewells in the shade.
