10 years of vicious cuts, failing to invest in the communities which need it most, creating inequality - presiding over huge rises in poverty, use of foodbanks, police cuts, rising crime, underfunding our NHS, underfunding our schools and on and on the list of failures go.

 

Yet they have pulled of the biggest con trick in political history and won an election with the votes of the very people who's communities they have destroyed with their cuts.

 

They have used the poor and disenfranchised as well as the racists and xenophobes to get in with a majority so they can have their way with peoples lives. All on the back of Brexit.

 

So many of the biggest leave areas are poor and working class areas - traditional Labour voters.....The Leave campaign and Brexit vote has done a fantastic job of getting these people to support the tories now and buy into Boris' 'Get Brexit Done' spiel - lots of them think Brexit is going to suddenly make their lives better and 'solve' the 'problems' they blame on immigration etc.

 

It is a to be fair a great con trick on these people - arguably the greatest political con trick of all time.

 

It is my strong belief that many of them only want Brexit because of their 'coming over here taking....' mentallity and because they swallowed the kind of dog whistle xenophobia and racism that has come from Johnson that a lot of the leave campaign was built on and that he doubled down on to leave voters in this election campaign.

 

The party that has let them and their communities down over and over again over the last 10 years is the Tories, with their vicious cuts, creation of inequality and planned decline of their communities...

 

But it is all 'the immigrants and the EU's fault'... vote brexit and take back control of our borders, free money up for the NHS, they have been told by a puppetmaster working them and playing them as puppets.....and frankly in many cases satisfying some xenophobic little englander mentallity, which blinds them to the truth.

 

It's a massive con - a  very clever well planned and executed one but a massive con.

 

Like lemmings they are following Johnson and his repeated call to 'get brexit done'...they'll wish they hadn't when it happens and when he gets his hands on their lives.

 

They Tories for decades have never known how to break through with the areas they have tonight - Brexit was the key that has opened that door and condemned us to their rule for another 5 years.

 

Turkeys and fucking Christmas!

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.

 

Maybe's, or maybe's when people are stripped to the bone in different aspects of their lives even the thick bastards will realise what they have done. The biggest problem now will be keeping the Union together, because that could be fractured beyond repair.

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 disagree mate.  But that’s life.

One of the most striking features of political life here for me (having lived in the southwest for the past couple of years): The number of actual right-wingers who present themselves as or even imagine themselves to be enlightened liberals. Folk who talk a good, progressive game, but exhibit incredibly narrow, dogmatic, superior, ultimately xenophobic attitudes, especially to foreigners such as myself and my family.

 

Nothing about tonight surprises me.

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.

Never , ever ceases to amaze me

    • It will hurt when he shoves it up his arse sideways. He will be crowning a crown.
    • And another thing, jet fuel engine doesn't burn through metal and a building that size would never fall at that angle. Tupac is still alive too. I'll have another whiskey chaser please luv.
    • The pressure of expectation could have been a factor as well. Their fans and probably the country in general would have been waiting to see if they could match the local rivals. United knew they had to do what we did too and while they won the Cup Winners' Cup like Everton, they had a bit of a psychological barrier in the European Cup I think.
    • Not at all. I'd scrap it right now if I could. I just think a lot of the complaints about it have been completely missing the point.   The main reason it needs to go is it's killing the emotion of goals. That alone is reason to fuck it off as far as I'm concerned.
    • The Formerly Fat One got the better of the Formerly Special One again as Chelsea thoroughly outplayed Spurs at Stamford Bridge. The 2-1 scoreline was a travesty really as Spurs were never in this game and their goal was a last minute fluke that went in off Rudiger.   Chelsea completely dominated and played some lovely football at times. Mount was excellent and they looked a much better side with Giroud leading the line. There are some things he doesn’t do as well as Kevin Abraham, but big handsome Olly is a good player.   He’s far too good for the bench role he seems to have occupied for most of his time in England anyway. He’d start regularly for at least 15 teams in this league and he’s one of those players who always seems to play well against us.    He opened the scoring with a crisp finish and Alonso added a beautiful second. That was such a nice goal all round that. Alonso is such a contradiction as he seems to have two or three efforts on goal every game he plays but he’s an absolute liability at the other end. You can't say he's shit, but equally you can't say he's good either. He's both shit and good.   You can’t really get away with playing him left back in a four against anyone decent, but you’d want him in the side because of the goal threat he poses. He scored one great goal in this game, he also hit the bar with a brilliant free-kick and was a yard too high with what would have been the goal of the season had it gone in. A right foot volley on the turn from 25 yards.   Then three days later he got himself sent off against Bayern in the Champions League, and even before the red card he was getting the absolute run around from the Bayern forwards. Alonso might be the hardest player in the league to evaluate. I think the best way to sum him up is excellent footballer, terrible left back.   The result keeps Chelsea’s grip on a top four spot still relatively tight but they’re losing so many games that you can’t be completely sure they’ll hold on. They should do, because in terms of squad talent they’ve definitely got more than anyone other than us and City, but they’re wildly inconsistent and we still don't know yet if Lampard knows what he's doing or if he's a complete chancer.   The main talking point after this game had nothing to do with Chelsea’s nice football or Mourinho continuing to turn Spurs into everything they weren’t under Poch though. No, it was VAR. Again.   You all know how I feel about VAR and I’d scrap it tomorrow if possible. That being said, VAR should not be criticised for what happened with Lo Celso. If anything, that incident shows exactly why VAR ‘should’ be a good thing. Michael Oliver didn’t see the incident clearly and that’s where the video should come into its own.    Instead, we have some fucking clown watching the screen in Stockley Park and making a monumental fuck up. Cue everyone kicking off about VAR. The technology isn’t the problem, it’s the morons who are using it.   Saturday was plagued with shite VAR decisions because the guy who was making those decisions must have been drunk or bribed. How else can you explain the Lo Celso non-red, or the disallowed Bournemouth goal (I’ll get to that later), or De Bruyne getting away with one of the most blatant handballs of the season?   They don’t want the refs going to the screens themselves, but if they keep allowing the YTS ref to make it up as they go along on VAR then they deserve every bit of criticism that comes their way. They’re making a fucking mockery of the game with this shit.   If you’re going to use VAR, then use it properly and if someone performs as badly as this David Coote jabroni (one just for you there Roger) did, don’t let them near it again. In fact, just ban them from even watching football altogether, let alone refereeing it.   Mark Clattenberg was on the radio this week and he was talking about how on field refereeing and VAR requires a completely different skill set and that being good at one doesn’t mean you’ll be good at the other. Sorry, but that’s absolute fucking bollocks.   Not everyone can referee a game. I’ll be the first to admit I couldn’t do it even if by some miracle I had the required fitness levels suddenly bestowed upon me. Refereeing is fucking hard. Really fucking hard. Not anybody can do it. I get that.   VAR though? I could do that standing on my fucking head so any qualified ref should be able to do it too. Any one of us could look at that Lo Celso stamp and immediately know it’s a red card, yet because of this daft process they have where the on field ref explains his view and unless the VAR vehemently disagrees with it and can say it’s obviously wrong, they stay with the on field call.    Except for the times when they don’t. And that’s the problem. That’s why you get Son sent off for kicking someone in the balls, and Harry Maguire allowed to get away with doing the exact same thing.   They’re making this shit needlessly complicated. The VAR ref should have told Oliver that Lo Celso needs to go, or at the very least he should tell him “that looks quite bad, you might wanna take a look yourself and decide what you want to do”. Instead he did nothing. An absolute disgrace really.   It didn’t impact the result because Chelsea won anyway, but that can’t be allowed to go unpunished. Lo Celso should be retrospectively banned and so should David Coote, the clueless twat. Apparently he’s a Championship referee. The Championship has my sympathy then, because if he can’t get easy decisions right with the benefit of numerous replay angles then what chance is there when he’s out there in the middle with no help?   Of course Mourinho continues to moan about having no strikers and a tired squad. I don’t remember who said it, but I do recall a famous quote from a manager about how if you keep telling players they are tired they will believe it and it gives them a ready made excuse. In Mourinho’s case, the ready made excuse is for him.   He’s a busted flush and instead of crying about not having any strikers, why not promote Troy Parrott, the talented kid who people are raving about? What have Spurs got to lose at this point? He says Parrott isn’t ready, and maybe he’s right. But how many times have we seen young strikers who have been thrown in and provided a spark to their team?   Playing like this Spurs have no chance of finishing in the top four this season and while Mourinho will continue to deflect all blame away from himself, the fact is they look worse now than they were before he got there.   Spurs were so close but they couldn’t take the final step and now they’re a million miles away with a manager who plays a prehistoric style of football.
