    I just received an email from Jeremy Corbyn asking me to send some cash to help Labour win the General Election. Anyone else want to chip in?

    So Tories win, push Brexit through with more seats and were all screwed.

    Why did labour flip again?

    Hopefully and Lib Dem’s to emerge as a serious contender for the official opposition. Would be great if this both ends Corbyn and is the start of the end for Labour as the other major party. If they carry on with the hard left/Marxist types then they deserve to get relighted and possibly replaced in some northern areas by Farages lot.

    It is risky for the Tories though, voters are volatile at the moment. Ideally want them to have a majority on their own and the Lib Dem’s to do well.

    Would probs support Lib Dem’s too once Brexit is delivered.

    Hopefully this could be the end of that useless sack of **** Comrade Corbyn. It would be a disaster if Labour does well in this election and/or the Tories can’t stay in government to deliver Brexit.

    I think we're in a very very different place with the electorate this time vs 2017. I have to say I'm totally shocked that Labour voted for this, I think they'll get a royal spanking in the North..... gueninuely what is Corbyn thinking?

    Chicken Corbyn ran out of excuses and rolled back his latest lame one when it became apparent the Lib Dems would support a GE. Lib Dem’s saw it as the last chance to stop Brexit given no majority for second ref at the mo and risk Boris could get his deal through with help of some Labour MPs.

    I honestly think there's a large part of the elecorate that hasn't forgotten Clegg's uturn on tuition fees, I can't see them doing too well with those they think they'll do well with!

    434, so 4 votes beyond that, bit fun isn't it.

    But this is entirely because Boris wasn't trusted to not keep that date, so it's unsurprising.

    It will haunt them until the end of time. I know people who will never forgive them for that.
    As for Corbyn, I think he realised the game was up after the Lib Dems and SNP jumped and had no choice. I think he's screwed.

    His biggest mistake will be continuing after today, if he stepped down immediately, Labour would likely at least force the Tory's back into a hung parliament without much need for anything else (all sorts of wonderous things could happen over the next 6 weeks.

    If he doesn't step down on the 13th if he loses, regardless of the veracity of the result, then frankly they can rot.

    Labour should logically just stop talking about Brexit and focus on the contradictions of the Tory government that are only barely repairing the damage they caused with their current policies, that's an easy message.

    Any acknowledgement of brexit is just going to turn into a poop slinging match, everyone knows it, everyone is bored of it.

    I think that's what they will do, Andrew Wynn was just on and trying to move the narrative away from Brexit. It might even work. The main sticking point is Corbyn unfortunately.

    Nothing will work for labour because it’s impossible to look past Corbyn.

    It almost worked the last time - if all we get is Brexit Brexit from Boris then Labour could do well - especially as we're closer to seeing a similar pledges from both on borrowing/spending, albeit spending on different things.
    Hard for the Tories to shout "magic money tree" at Labour when they're doing exactly the same this time.

    Labour was powerless to stop the election. And Corbyn knew it.

    He had two choices; play in to the narrative that Labour is scared of an election by voting against the motion, or try and save face by backing it.

    Pretty easy choice tbh.
