Shame the last deprivation scale isn't interactive/more detailed.

I'm interested to see how Corbyn himself interprets the election results. The impression I've gotten from here and elsewhere is that one of the reason Labour had such a successful campaign is that Corbyn allowed himself to be sidelined, with the party instead focusing the campaign on their manifesto. After the success and acclaim he's gotten since the election, will Corbyn be as willing to keep out of the limelight in the next one? And if he does take a greater role in the next election, which groups of voters and seats might be most effected by his decision?

That's not really that true. Labour certainly for their part attempted to make the campaign about their policy platform - undoubtedly their most attractive area (especially when compared to the Tories). However Tory strategy was to make it about personality and refocus the campaign on May vs Corbyn, and expose Corbyn - something Labour couldn't really avoid. But when Corbyn started beating May on her turf - consistently outperforming her in debates etc that was just as important to the success of the Labour campaign.

YouGov: Early General Election:

Support: 43%
Oppose: 38%

This actually isn't very surprising: the trend with this question in the past is that supporters of the government tend to not want an election while supporters of the main opposition party do.  Considering that Labour are leading in the polls now...

Of course, but we haven't actually had a VI poll from YouGov (or anyone else besides Survation, for that matter). This lends weight to Survation's Lab 6-point lead.

It makes me laugh a bit when Lib Dems defend him as the only leader to take the party into government since the War. Yes, that's because the seats fell in a certain way, and the Lib Dems actually suffered a net loss in seats in 2010.

His one achievement was destroying all his predecessors had built up. HP.

There are some papers this morning suggesting that Sinn Fein is actually considering taking their seats if Corbyn offers an Ireland unification referendum? Is there any merit to this or just the tabloids??

That'd be quite the departure of what they've been insisting these recent weeks.

I don't think many Brits would be particularly be bothered by such a poll, but it could risk enraging the unionists. Having said that, even another 7 seats would just mean a stronger opposition for Corbyn, so it's high-risk for not much benefit.

Where are you guys getting regional vote breakdowns for 2017 and 2015? I've been looking for them everywhere to no avail... Sad

Anyone?

I'll post my spreadsheet once I'm done, that will give you 2015.

Would love to go back further to when these really start to become more meaningful (two-party state pre-74) but no handy resources available to hand and I'm not invested enough to pick through every constituency manually.

In last 3 days, 150,000 people have joined Labour. We now have 800,000 members. Great news! Let's make it a million!

Tweet by Richard Burgeon MP.

Good to see Labour returning to post-war mass-membership it held throughout the 40's to 70's. Should help with campaigning and funds for the next GE.

Wow. This makes it the biggest mass party in Europe by far. How do one join the Labour? All the parties I know have paid membership.


Well it's no doubt changed a little since I joined 6-7 years ago but you just go to the website and apply online. They then send you out a pack, with a membership card, and keep you posted if there's any elections/materials produced (and royally spam your email). It's about 50 p/y direct debit, but I think it's halved for those not in employment (you can choose what you like, I guess, but I can't imagine many people would bother signing up in the first place if they weren't prepared to pay 50 towards the party).

I can only hope this liberal sh**t-show collapses after one term and the Left return in full-force.

Not from the Beeb, no. Like this year's, they've changed (for the worse) how they present the results. But you can find them from a parliamentary document (pdf at the bottom).

It seems the 2001 and prior results don't follow the EU regions - the 2001 results just have 'North' with Cumbria's results in with the North East. 2005 onwards follow EU regions and have that in with the North West.

General question : the Beeb reported past G/E results by regions

Link please? I haven't been able to find it.

2010 (click on a region)
2005 (click the drop-down on the right)
2001 (click the dropdown in the middle)

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?

Yes (with the exception of Gibraltar, which is in SW region for European election and is not represented in Westminster).

Awesome - that makes things easier.
