#564

If only the Labour party hadn’t spent the last year or so attacking, and plotting against their leader.

#566

So this whole thing is going to boil down to whether the SNP cut a deal with the Tories? :slight_smile:


#567

On a scale of 1 to 10 how stupid must Theresa May feel?

I’m looking forward to this strong and stable Government she talked so much about…


#568

Well if that’s what the SNP think then their position will only get worse.

Fucked it for themselves, can see why you’re gutted and trying to deflect the blame. Independence is dead for another generation.


#569

Not unless they cut a deal, and a second referendum is their main condition.


#570

So guys? How is it going?


#571

If anyone says “my vote won’t make a difference” direct them to this!

#572

They haven’t got the seats for that.


#573

They do. It requires 326 seats to form a majority government.

Con have 309, and SNP have 34.


#574

Just read the result. Jeremy, you absolute Arsenal legend! :giroud2:


#575

Fucking superb.


#576

The Conservatives and DUP.

Coalition of chaos :confused:


#577

If they were to work with the Tories they’d destroy themselves.


#578

They were effectively working together anyway from what I can gather.


#579

No ones sober enough until later next day? :tumbler_glass::beer:


#580

fixed that for you :slight_smile:


#581

Oh my what a result. Theresa May and her vision of Brexit and social cuts obviously wasn’t big enough of a vote winner. Tory brexit strategy changing a few weeks before negotiations start - incredible!

Did not expect that in a million years, absolutely superb.

Surely May won’t last long, she screwed up from a winning position- let’s see her own coalition of chaos!


#582

Hero


#583

Can’t believe it.

She’s fucked herself, made herself look incompetent, let everyone know how unlikeable she is and more importantly legitimised Corbyn and made Labour credible opposition in people’s eyes. The next 5 years will be difficult whereas the next 3 years could have been pretty easy.
