General question : the Beeb reported past G/E results by regions - did these regions consist of the same constituencies that make up the EU regions?

"Democratic Unionist sources have told The Guardian that one possible sweetener fro the party from Theresa May and the Tories is the possible elevation of Peter Robinson to the House of Lords."

That's their sweetner?!

I hadn't realized so many constituencies had flipped from Labour to the Tories. Anything particular about these places?

very high leave vote

e.g. stoke on trent south

Ugh, that's worrying.

Six seats in total.

Middlesbrough South & East Cleveland was a marginal and always expected to go - perhaps Tory campaign ramped up there. Copeland was the main constituency where Jeremy's aversion for Trident is toxic.

Stoke on Trent South, Mansfield, Wallsall - could only be Brexit. Throughout their long history they've been foregone conclusions for Labour.

Cheesy

That Ashfield result was insanely close.

Is Yvette Cooper a "right wing" Labourite?

Her campaign was very Hillary Clinton in the first leadership race.

Corbyn did better than Blair's last election.

Current predictions are that he's not far off Blair's 2001 result.

Tories gain mansfield from Labour
Wasn't expecting that.

Reports on the potential Tory landslide were held there. It's very Leave.

With the decline of SDLP, I wonder whether Labour will rethink on standing candidates in NI.

Sorry to ask, but why are people so focused on Priti Patel of all people? You'd think there's at least a dozen more credible leadership contenders.

I'd assume more moderate and for a soft brexit.

Priti Patel, moderate?!

Any reason why BBC has such a LibDem boner?

Isn't the BBC pro remain?

BBC has a liberal bias. Liberalism is the centrist opinion in the UK, and that's the position it's occupied for decades.

I can't tell if I feel happier for Corbyn supporters (seriously guys what a coup!) or sadder for May.

How the hell do you feel sad for May? She did this all to herself and is not at all likable because of her own doing.
I feel sad for anyone who finks up this badly. It's hard not too Tongue

She got greedy and moved in to kill the main opposition. No sympathy.

Well, a sad day for NI politics--SDLP totally wiped out.  Not a single MP since...they first stood for seats, if I'm not mistaken?

More help to the Tories, and absurd to have no Nationalists represented in Westminster.

Aw, f**k. The Tories have gained the ultra marginal Middlesbrough S & E Cleveland after all.
116  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: UK General Election, 2017 - Election Day and Results Thread on: June 08, 2017, 09:22:58 pm
Exactly. I was f**king alarmed!

God the BBC performing lewd acts on Nick Clegg as he exits stage left is making me gag.

Every university student in the UK has been demonstrably hurt by his ambition and cowardice.

Give me a break with this. Tuition fees were tripled under Labour leadership. It's amazing how Clegg has to take sh*t for moderating the Cameron government when it could've been worse.

To campaign to remove a total tuition fee of 9K to instate a 9K a year (27K total) - the highest public universite fees in the world? Won their seats off the back of the student vote? No amount of whataboutery excuses this.

1st Cons gain from Lab!! Copeland

No, they'd already gained Walsall North.
121  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: UK General Election, 2017 - Election Day and Results Thread on: June 08, 2017, 08:52:54 pm
Haha jog on Clegg.
122  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: UK General Election, 2017 - Election Day and Results Thread on: June 08, 2017, 08:44:25 pm
Tories barely hold Thurrock

Sad
123  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: UK General Election, 2017 - Election Day and Results Thread on: June 08, 2017, 08:36:39 pm
Tories gain Walsall north from Lab

West midland seat

Oh , I forgot how well nationalism plays in the Midlands.

After years of being a proud left-wing bastion, Scotland looks to have not only decimated the Labour party to snooker any chances for a Labour majority but is now handing the Tories theirs. F**K SAKE.
125  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: UK General Election, 2017 - Election Day and Results Thread on: June 08, 2017, 07:29:12 pm
Is the YouGov model really underestimating Labour?

Mixed picture. Swindon South they overestimated them, for instance.
