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.

    • That Maguire one is corruption how can it be anything else. Look at it! Fabinho wins the ball outside the box... Penalty. Jota fouls a player in the box, no penalty. Have they employed blind people to monitor VAR.   The decisions United are getting are unbelievable it feels like they're the only side in the country were every single decision goes their way.    Oh sorry except the martial incident!
    • I agree. Instead of cutting out corruption its made it legal and above reproach, something has to be done about this shambolic shit show. Its destroyed the game. 
    • Whether it was in the box or not wasn’t obvious either. The chimp in the VAR room took ages looking at the still image.
    • I would pretty much echo that as my thinking. 
        I was working in the Raven that day. I was happy for them. I assumed they would be the same in 96. But it was the opposite, I found it a bit sad really as the cup finals in the 80’s had a street party feel with it.   i think you add in the Barmby transfer and the Gary Mac derby and it went proper sour around 2000.   I came home from uni that season and went to about half the games, including the travel. That cup treble year was boss, there was quite a few lads my age who’d not had the chance to travel, do the Europe trips and due to cheap flights it was really opening up.   Despite being on shit wages temping, and having loads of games due to cup progression loads of us made it work. I think they hated that.   The Evertonians just got more bitter as that season went on. I saw a blue from school in the Crosby on the day of the cup final. He was totally aggressive that three of us weren’t in Cardiff for the final, despite we were going to Dortmund on the Wednesday and Charlton the following weekend. All despite having been to 30 odd games and being on less than £200 a week.   But then if you get knocked out of the cups by Tranmere and Bristol Rovers in the early rounds (yeah I had to check) and can get free seasons tickets with a mobile phone contract, you can go the game
    • I just don't see Klopp going for a 6ft1 centre back. Both of them are that height
