    Is that the same brexit where the best we were being given was a veiled admittance of likely disaster catchphrased as 'no deal better than a bad deal'

    After seeing the effects of the cuts first hand, no they aren't naive.

    They cut too fast, too soon and now they are paying for it. Good.

    Oh well, Truro and Falmouth came in.

    Tory 25k, Labour 21k.

    22% gain for Labour, but not nearly enough. Cornwall is Tory :(

    You don't need to be Solomon reborn, you just have to be better than the alternative and if you get into power while being a pillock it just goes to show how garbage the competition was.

    One things for sure.... The media's grip on peoples minds is well and truly on its way out. Well done to the people who didn't listen to the sun or daily mail.... Even if you still voted for May.

    No, what happened is people weren't fooled by the Troy May rhetoric any more. Nor are they willing to put up with a party that has created Brexit, massive austerity and this mess in the first place.

    Labour have run a positive campaign and we preferable to many than May.

    Lord buckethead made May very uneasy. She's such a rich vicar's daughters, scared of common people

    Specifically her hard brexit outcome approach I meant, but you're probably right. To add, Tories in unable to motivate the young vote shocker...

    I never understand this, I have seen no evidence of 'cuts' I live in a rural town so perhaps we did not suckle from the public treasury as much

    Surely May cannot continue after this, monumental **** up from her the second she called the election, as well as her campaign since.

    Tory MPs cannot be happy.

    I dunno, I get the impression that most people realise that free movement of people cannot be avoided by being in the single market. That implies a hard brexit doesn't it?
