Yes, I agree with you. Apart from that. If we had PR now, Remain would have 120 seats by the morning..

FTP will never be replaced....Let it go, let it go.
This election has changed my mind about PR

Yes and no. I think we are generally a nation of centre right/centre left. So, yes, Tories are ****s, but I do believe there is a lot of genuine belief in Labour.
I just don’t sense any enthusiasm or belief in Labour. They’re on course to get a lower vote share than Corbyn achieved. But win a landslide.

Anger with “MP’s all being the same” means less people voting
Reform taking huge swathes of Con vote share.
And some Labour

Wonderful to see the headline exit poll

But worried about the future of our wonderful country
In five years time, the Snake Oil salesman could really be a huge influence

Hopefully he will have something better to do by then.
Mandleson thinks not. Voters lashing out at tories by protest voting.

I hope he's right. He's making mincemeat of the Reform **** in the studio :lolol:

I think I may retire for an hour or two. See you all in a bit when the details start coming :bigwave:

Still don't understand why people keep trying to punch themselves in the face as a 'protest' :shrug:

Agree.

People are mistaken if they think defending the current electoral system will stem the tide. Better to confront the issues and national mood head on than burying your head in the sand and relying on FPTP, otherwise the numbers of disaffected and disenfranchised will just grow and grow. Or, the Tories will lurch far to the right, scoop them all up and win.

Exactly.

Starmer, Reeves and Streeting need to get cracking almost straight away on broken Britain, affordable homes, mental health services, trade with the EU, waiting lists. To maintain support for the next GE.

Crikey, what a task.

If we hear a commission’s been set up to hear all voices on future home building or similar, the 5 years will race by and they/we will pay a heavy price.

Nadine refusing to share what Boris has text her.

She is floundering when asked if Boris will come back to the Tories.
 








And what did he get in 2019? Seriously with so many more parties competitive nobody was going to get near 40%+

Of course people have been saying that for days (I for one) but you wouldn't have read that
In 2019, Corbyn got 3 per cent less than tonight on probably a higher turnout. When we see the turnout, we can figure out if actually more people voted for Labour this time than they did in 2019, it’ll be close.

This Labour majority is therefore built on quicksand (with crap ratings for Starmer to boot). The combined rightwing vote of 43 per cent is a very scary prospect for the future

Sunderland central exactly the same as the first two. Crikey.

Low turnout (52%) again

and again for Reform in Sunderland Central. It's a huge protest against Con, but can they build on it?

Curtace reckons less than Corbyn 17.
