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.

It’s just a bit pathetic for someone near 50 to be acting like that. Attack the post, not the poster. Not difficult.

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
