Diane Abacus kept her seat  🤔 - how dumb and inept do you have to be to not get

re-elected as a Labour MP in London ?

No surprise though was it given London demographics. 

Mind you, along with that Gina Miller is she not now surplus to requirements?

Surplus to requirements as far as Brexit is concerned and which she concedes in that article. The only plan she has is to scupper future trade deals with EU.

Best of luck with that Gina. 😂😂

Gina Miller is hooked on getting her ugly face in the papers and on TV.

She got away with stuff when  Theresa the Appeaser was in charge,

but Boris is a different matter altogether.  She can no longer rely

on her remainer pals in parliament to drag things out so she only

has the courts now,  and even the supreme court said it is the

prime minister / executive that runs the country,  not parliament or the courts...

Re: Election Result - your comments please !

I think this hits the nail on the head

 

Margaret Beckett is not a Diane Abbott

 

Labour MP Dame Margaret Beckett accepts a rejection of Jeremy Corbyn himself was a factor behind Labour's defeat in the general election.

"I got that on the doorstep a lot," she says on BBC Radio 4's PM programme.

"Jeremy had so much baggage and it wasn't easy baggage. He had been in Parliament for so long but without having the leadership responsibilities that makes people more cautious, perhaps, about some of things they say and do.

"Yes, there was, and unjustifiably in many cases, a rejection of Jeremy himself."

I've just read that 'feature' and quite a few of the comments posted.

Lots of amusing ones (IMO), and this one seemed quite apt;

The naysays now need to button it. The referendum voted to leave, this election endorsed that decision


But that's the problem with general elections. Parties are voted for and whoever wins can then claim that the nation wanted the policies that they were promoting - even if that's untrue.

Although it was a definite election victory i suspect that many remoaners voted for Boris purely because they didn't like Corbyn - but that doesn't mean they supported Brexit (though lets face it, everyones fed up with it).

Until we are allowed to vote on individual policies (which won't happen because that's what MPs do and would put them out of work) then politicis remains broken in this country.

I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Never noticed the comment button before.

I liked................

"about 0.5% of the population are communist loons and they are all in the Labour party now. It's like a jam-jar slug trap for them"

Not sure I can buy into the idea that a clear win for the Conservatives was even remotely because of a dislike of Corbyn. From all angles this was a 'get Brexit done' result and sure there was an element of personal dislike there always is - I would never vote for the likes of Diane Abbott for example whatever her Party's promises even if one of them was Brexit, but to put this down to personality politics is to my mind at least a bit of a stretch. 

Never met the guy but unlike his ex squeeze side kick he seems honest enough but like a dangerously misguided old uncle who has become somewhat confused,  he should be left in his allotment whilst being kept as far away as possible from any sharp tools in the shed. I might buy some carrots off him, but that's about it. 

Fortunately there was a Brexit Party candidate standing in my area. Had there not been I would have been sorely tempted for the first time ever as a long time Socialist to have voted Conservative just and only because of Brexit. Unfortunately Labour did not promise the same.

It's a funny old world to be sure, and can we ever like all the presents we open on Christmas day even if they had been delivered by somebody that looked a bit like Santa Claus? That really would be a first.

Bring it on Boris, he's got one shot at this because there will be little if any reason in the minds of many to vote for his Party again.... not that I'll be around in five years time, but you never know. 😃

@7up 

The reality is that if Johnson had failed to get a majority we would have ended up in the same vicious circle that we have been in for the last three years, not only would it have cost this country millions, perhaps billions as companies moved out but the ill feeling between some on both sides of the debate would have got even more nasty and the country divided even further, you only need to look on some past posts of this forum and comments made by both sides to see some of the personal remarks made which were not always relevant to the topic.

The top priority was to get Brexit done and out of the way, nothing could move forward until that was done and only one party was willing to do that.

If Corbyn had been any good and not made all those major errors he may well have retained more seats but would still have lost.

Who knows what the real Johnson is going to be like, only time can tell, not a great fan of his myself but he was our only hope.
