I think you can blame many things for Labour's disaster tonight. 

 

The fact it was a Brexit election. Corbyn. I think he's sound. Sadly, it's clear now that others don't hold that view. Be that based on their own genuine fears and dislikes, or because of the smears and untruths which have created a false impression of him. 

 

Tonight doesn't seem the time for an autopsy. But, I'm a remain voter and might not see what others do, but what is your average person, a worker, not a business owner, going to get from Brexit? It seems like they've not actually voted for anything tangible, other than the ability to say "we've left the EU!" 

 

What else is there for them to gain? I don't get it. 

 

The make Britain Great again bullshit what they believe.

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.

Seriously man, you and your family should get off this sinking ship. Joke of a country. We lose good people like you, but you have a chance of a better life.

 

It used to be a running joke in the 80s about an independent Merseyside. I would vote for it in the morning and that's no joke. 

 

Think of all the opposition fans with their Victorian attitudes towards Liverpudlians passed down from generation to generation because we were the original immigrant town. Fucking dickheads.

Tory vote share is predicted at 46% I think? I'd guess that'll be from picking up the overwhelming majority of the Leave vote, especially if they do as well as predicted in Leave-voting northern towns.

I don't know. I haven't looked that closely as I'm still suffering from PTSD. 

 

It's been quite a nationalistic election though. In England. And Scotland.

Lib Dems were shite BTW. 

Still can’t get my head around the Lib Dems voting remainers gloating about this result. Real odd behaviour.

Francois on the BBC comparing the red wall to the Berlin Wall. Gone in the head.

Absolutely identical. Except for the fact that one of them actually existed.

Its not over until the fat lady sings and I don't intend to put Adele on until about 4am. 

 

SD - What are your thoughts on Swinson possibly losing her seat? She might still win it of course but she might well not. Surely as leader of the Lib-Dems it should be a walkover? Is she a useless cunt?

It's a bit cheeky of the TV networks who've hammered home that it was a "Brexit election" to now totally change that rhetoric and say the result was nothing to do with Brexit and was about Corbyn. 

 

It might have been, partially. But, still. Cunts.

Her losing her seat might be the only decent thing from tonight.

It was impossible to win this election on a remain supporting platform. Lib Dems went full out revoke and will get 12/13 seats?

 

The main problem for Labour was that the members wanted to remain, and the country clearly doesn't want to. You can say all you like about remain being ahead in the polls, but tonight's result makes it overwhelmingly clear that that has gone now. 

 

If you look at the last 3 elections, essentially all that happened was the UKIP vote came back to Labour in 2017 and has now gone over to the Tories, and that's the difference.

Between the attacks from the media, the Zionist lobby and the Progress pricks in his own party, Corbyn had to endure the most vicious attacks that I have ever known any British political leader suffer. He threatened the establishment and when you do that they come for you with everything they've got. 

 

It shows us, though, that the status quo can be rattled and the left should learn from this election. Changing it, though, is another matter; anyone who thinks that this Parliamentary democracy represents either protection or advancement for the mass of working people of this country is deluded, but that perception is what we have to change. Yet Parliament is a great representation of our country - corrupted, divided and ultimately unwilling to change. Something more radical than a honest, orderly campaign - no matter how visionary - is not enough. This country needs an earthquake.

Trust me, Stronts ain’t happy. 

I don't think Rico is either. Neither voted Tory.

I still can't get my head around you thinking any Lib Dem voting remainers are gloating about this result.

    • So yet again the refs association changing its tune   Earlier, we didn't check if it was a Fabinho foul, after get shit for that all of a sudden we did check but not a clear and obvious error. Well its either a fucking foul or not
    • Tuchel seems a right moaner, he’ll fit right in at City.
    • Jurgen Klopp says that Diogo Jota is making huge strides since joining the club but there is plenty more improvement left in the Portuguese star.

      In his first league start at Anfield, the 23 year-old forward was a hard worker throughout and his reward was a priceless winner with a pin-point header from a Sadio Mane cross.

      Liverpool were certainly not at their fluent best, still adapting to life without Virgil Van Dijk, but gladly welcomed back Alisson from a three match absence with a Shoulder injury.

      VAR continued to antagonise the Liverpool faithful when Sheffield United won a highly debatable penalty early in the contest when Fabinho was adjudged to have fouled Blades striker Oliver McBurnie despite countless video replays not being conclusive in declaring where in fact the contact was.

      Sander Berge duly dispatched the spot-kick and it was clear that the visitors, without a win heading into this contest were growing in confidence. Roberto Firmino got himself on the scoresheet for the first time this season tapping home from close range which would have been a massive boost to his confidence. 

      Jota then scored his goal midway through the second half, his second since joining the club and speaking in his post-match (per Sky Sports) the German spoke highly of the recent arrival.  

      "He's still adapting to us, a lot of things are not natural to him that we do," Klopp said. "But that's because Wolves play differently. A lot of things he did for Wolves are what we want him to do. 

      “That he is that close already is just a sign of how good a player he is, and if he stays fit, he is 23, the future is bright. We will need his quality, I'm happy with how he's settled in.

      “He's a good player, that's what I like about him, I said it to my coaches and said it's so easy because he's such a likeable person which makes everything easy. The player is quick, his physicality is strong, he's good in the air, on the ground, but he has the quality we need, and that helps a lot."

      The player himself was delighted to have had the final say but it tinged with a bit of sadness.

      “Like I said before when I scored my first one, I just wish these stands could be full to make it even more special. But I think in the end the most important [thing] was that my goal was important to seal the victory, so I’m very pleased with that.”

      As we have seen so far this season,  results are of a such a inconsistent nature and points so hard to pick up on a consistent basis which is why every win should be savoured in their own way.

      Jota is well aware of what lies ahead and that is why momentum is key.

      “I think that’s why we need everyone to stay fit, we need everyone to give his best. I think we go game by game but we know how hard it will be so it’s important for us to get the points.”

    • I can recall united getting battered at Southampton 2 years in a row and having plenty of absolutely diabolical performances but somehow they turned losses into draws and draws into wins and it fucking ruined my teenage years the cunts, and even though Chelsea were never battered, I remember them away at Watford and Palace and were again, truly shocking but came away with the 3 points.  Point is, these nights tonight are exactly what gives us the aura of we'll just find a way to win somehow, and most of the time, just as united and Chelsea had when they were winning titles.  
    • Every goal we score, I am like this these days. Stupid VAR.
