I’m looking forward to the sky news coverage of the results as always. I will enjoy it even more because I like John Berkow!

Stop trying to blame the SNP for the way your fellow Brits vote Kem.

Independence is the only way we'll get rid of Tory rule.

Just realised I spelled the former Speaker’s surname wrong, Bercow it should be, don’t know what I was thinking about!

Well the worst results as predicted were for Labour. To succeed in future they will have to up their game and listen to the people instead of thinking they still have stronghold constituencies as they did on days gone by. Jeremy Corbyn has seen the errors, and has indicated that he should stand down as leader.

Nicola Sturgeon in my opinion deserved to win a further new 13 seats because she worked hard, and was the best all round campaigner. That being said I still have to check if she won my area.

Politics is never dull!

The stars have aligned.

PM Johnson and FM Sturgeon will now consecutively lead Scotland out of the EU and the UK.

The price of this folly will forever be on their heads. The public have followed and swallowed their campaigns, like lemmings off a cliff.

I'm happy for Carmella and Jagz, for they are beginning to realise these longheld political fantasies.

As an opponent who has grown to like his rivals, and as their axes hew and scatter their leaderless foes, I submit smiling wryly on my way.

To the Station I went, now to the Cosmodrome I go. After one final brief visit to the Kremlin to pass on my congratulations I turn the corner, to catch my flight.

You're the one with the "longheld political fantasies" Kem, your're the dreamer of a happy clappy united Kingdom that never has existed in the first place, your fellow Brits South of the border have diffrent political priorities to you, and for you to claim their right to decide their own future as "folly" shows out of touch you really are, you have followed your Great Leader and swallowed her campaign like a lemming off a cliff, thankfully the good voters of East Dunbartonshire have rejected her brand of nationalism. yes.gif

Well, it all turned out pretty much as expected (although the size of the majority is a wee surprise). Most interesting statistic (from Prof Curtis) was the size of vote for Brexit supporting parties was 47%. I'll leave the maths with you wink.gif

Where will we be going now, let's see what kind of cabinet Johnson puts together. My guess is a swing to an ultra-light wing agenda and the truth about a post Brexit Britain with eventually dawn on the electorate. I think there are challenging times ahead for the occupants of the good ship UK in the coming months and years.

Hi Ashfield

Do you know if the 47% included Labour? If it does then his statistic is wrong. Labour was indecisive.
They were going to have a ‘People’s vote’, as I recall. So the people voted, saving us all another long period of indecision.

I don't know Danny, you would need to ask Prof Curtis but he seems to know his stuff.

You're right, the people have voted saving a long period of indecision, to be replaced by a long period of hard times for a lot of people instead (IMHO of course)

Alex Rowley Sacked by New Labour Party Bosses in London

He was elected to the post of General Secretary of the Labour Party in Scotland in May 1998 and held the post until May 1999 when after outlining his vision for the future growth of the party in Scotland he expressed a view that having modernised Scotland’s political institutions and introduced a Scottish Parliament, the party needed to change its structure including proposals giving the Labour Party in Scotland freedom from London control.

All hell broke loose and he was summoned to Millbank in London, where he was told the party had nowhere for him in its future planning.

He was then invited to resign from his post as General Secretary of the Scottish Labour party a decision which provoked great anger in Scotland.

Kemedian, I have to say that of all the ‘posters’ on the political forums, you are the one who has disappointed me most.

In your post #1138 on the 24th of June 2016 you said,

“I argued that the UK should remain in order to have our say in future reform and I still value membership, but that is no longer an option for me because I value democracy more”.

Now in post #157 in the General Election forum, you say,
“The price of this folly will be forever on our heads. The public have followed and swallowed their campaigns, like lemmings off a cliff”.

So it seems to me that your true understanding of democracy is, it really only applies when the majority agree with you. Otherwise they are lemmings. They don’t have your intelligence if they don’t.

I must say in common with so many people, I will be glad when it’s all over. Even if we leave the EU in a few weeks’ time, it will still take years to complete.
