So, the people are just as indecisive and useless as MPs
So do conservatives / DUP even have a majority now? Edit - oh yeah no change.
and Corbyn effectively won a majority in parliament with this glorious victory.
I’m not sure you can say that — Labour’s official policy is to still deliver Brexit…
Yes. This was a Labour seat before the by-election.
*edit* Bah, you ninja’d that quickly.
Ross North by-election for a council was 75% Lib dem, Lol Tories. They've certainly lost the South west with those kind of shifts.
A partly reassuring outcome, but it must be tempered by the realisation that 29% of the people who bothered to vote chose to support a party with no policies other than barking about democracy and leaving the EU without a deal. Doubtless there'll be the normal Brexit Party supporters along to tell us that it was a great victory to come this close, but equally that should be tempered by self-labelled fishermen's friend and alleged serial liar Nigel Farage hiding in a toilet last night to avoid having to make any kind of public appearance at all.
BXP is flavour of the month. Farage will burn it and ‘semi-retire’ again given a few more failures.
If that does happen it won't be until after the general election or if we do indeed leave the EU.
Too bad he burned his bridge with his sugar daddy Banks.
They can have your say, but is it too much to ask that those thickos actually understand what they're voting for?
Leave parties did actually get a bigger share of the vote than remain parties though.
So a city that voted 60.9% leave in 2016, only voted 29% Brexit Party in 2019. Can we take it as read that A) people have changed their mind, and/or they don't want a hard Brexit.
But everyone in 2016 voted for WTO right, and just wants to get on with it?
But as in the referendum they all want different versions of brexit from very soft to no deal. If you take no deal the vast majority don’t want it or the too often racist politics associated with it now.
Wow, that's a crushing disappointment for the Brexit Party.
Which vote are you talking about here?
If the brexit party can't win in Peterborough given the local sentiment and the history from labour's previous MP then where can they win I wonder. No wonder Farage avoided the reporters Apparently he's popped up in his "Safe Space" this morning, aka The Today Programme.
