Yeh, but then he totally respected the referendum result

Unlike some of his other Tory tribe, but from what I've just seen - every single one of the Referendum "Traitors" has lost in every seat they put up for election in - good stuff

Well, it's a sad day for the Liberals and the liberals...

Mind you, it's good day to be retired with a few bob tucked away in the city and the pound is soaring against the Euro. (Blankers::@ I'd say wait a week...the will only weaken IMHO).

So, predictions, anybody?

...Well I dreamt that we will get the Conservatives by default and with a working majority. Both Corbyn and Swinson have become more and more toxic as the campaigning has progressed. I don't see the SNP being as strong and they think they are and neither they not the Lib-Dems will command enough seats to hold the balance of power (either left of right). Farage will creep away with his tail between his legs only to resurface post-election as the head (unappointed!) of his new Reform Party (as if we need another Farage-lead political party!). The DUP's days in the spotlight will be over. Too much will have been made of tactical voting, which will not work this time around.

Brexit will happen by the end of 2020 with a totally ****ed up "deal" the long term (2-3 years) effect of which will be another GE, this time with Jess Philips as leader of the Labour party. Corbyn will be assigned to the history books and will retreat into obscurity along with any resurgent militant Labourites.

Boris's "deal" will see chaos an disorder throughout the UK which will result in him being kicked out after losing his Uxbridge seat. Instead a more moderate leader of the party will need to trying his or her best to stem the sweeping tide of compassionate Labour policies under Phillips.

Meanwhile Trump will loose the 2020 election to Elizabeth Warren and with her and Jess at the head of the Atlantic Pact countries, we will see a lessening in tensions throughout the world....Then I woke up!

Still, at least the will strengthen making trips to Euroland much cheaper. The will weaken quickly post-election so hold your fire before exchanging s to s prior to the French trip. Wait until it reaches 1.30 then get in quick as it will fall again quickly.

The city will react positively in the short term following the GE but the FTSE will not be able to sustain high numbers for too long. Buy now and get out in 6 months .


Conservatives by default and with a working majority ... check

Both Corbyn and Swinson have become more and more toxic as the campaigning has progressed...check

I don't see the SNP being as strong and they think they are and neither they not the Lib-Dems will command enough seats to hold the balance of power ... check (OK first bit wrong but the SNP can forget about balance of power and 2nd Scottish independence referendum).

Farage will creep away with his tail between his legs ... check

The DUP's days in the spotlight will be over ... check

Too much will have been made of tactical voting, which will not work this time around ... check

The will strengthen making trips to Euroland much cheaper ... check

The city will react positively in the short term following the GE ... check

Anyone want to know the Lottery numbers!

Now all I want is to see is Boris drown in the sea of lies he has used in this GE; see the back of Corbyn; see Jess installed in his place and see Trump fail abysmally. Populism, as was the case with fascism, will be a short term but dangerous fad and in time a more liberal democracy will return... Sadly I will have shuffled off this mortal coil by then.

agree with the above Boris is a knob, JC a dangerous fanatic, Swinson still thinks she's PM on a second vote, Sturgeon showed her true nasty self and Farage is almost as bad as JC.

Best of a bad bunch won but liked his quote this morning "Lets get breakfast done!"

Lesser of two evils won IMO. Boris is a twonk but Corbyn is an absolute idiot and a danger. Dont even get me started on that moron Abbott...

Wrong

Jake Berry has always been a staunch endorser of Brexit

Not has if it matters now anyway, Labour have got massacred, and so have the Liberals.

I wonder if the likes of Gina Miller, Phil Hammond, John Major, Anna Soubray, Tony Blair etc... will ever show their faces again, the result shows once again just how utterly out of touch the political class are with the general public!

The Conservatives win

Corbin says he will not stand in the next general election. Music to my ears, out with the **** for me, hes done

The only thing I can hope for is a Labour Party reform and they find a genuine, proper and inspirational leader this time instead of a

Boris Johnson, what a ****

Just been and put my X in the box

Horrified to find my paper had already been spoiled by some mug who had included a Brexit party candidate on there...

Fingers crossed for an outbreak of common sense (not the Rees mogg kind) across the nation

If your from the South East I totally understand.

Independent trade experts from the UK Trade Policy Observatory, from the University of Sussex. Looked at the likely impact of US, Australian and New Zealand free trade deals. The report finds a negative impact on the UK as a whole.
But
UK government impact assessments show that, in fact, only the South East will benefit from US, Australian and New Zealand trade deals, and that the rest of the country will see negative consequences.

Vote for the lying chancer and get Brexit done
