Just a quiet place to sit. If you want to gloat or opinionate about Corbyn please go over to AIBU.

Group hug very much needed. Thank you. Too depressed to sleep...

WashingtonIrving Fri 13-Dec-19 00:10:46

Me too. Never post. Depressingly predictable tho.

Likewise, can’t sleep. Husband watching the results so I’m in the bedroom on my own except for the cat. Very grateful for feline company.

Devastated at how 'Little Englanders' English people really are. The Great Empire. Blah blah me hole.

I'm so upset. Fucking stupid fucking people. Do people not understand what they are voting for? Or don't they care?

FlamingoAndJohn Fri 13-Dec-19 00:14:52

It’s horrid. How could people do this?
I understand that some people don’t like Corbyn but to vote Tory? How could they do that?

Am so sad. Keep thinking about my baby son and what a horrible country he's going to inherit.

Unbelievable really!!!! It really is hard to sleep now

TooStressyTooMessy Fri 13-Dec-19 00:16:57

I am also very sad and infuriated. Was meant to go to sleep over an hour ago but have been miserably following the results.

Hugs to you all. I’m not looking forward to my ageing parents joy about a party winning that I think will (and has) destroy the institution they will need in the next few years... (sorry, I know this was supposed to be a quiet place ☹️)

It’s awful. I blame both Corbyn and Boris tho. It should have been easy but Corbyn is a student politician who is out of touch with the base. But it’s just awful

Well I'm thrilled that my dd private school will no longer be under threat. Conservatives are leading by a massive majority compared to what was expected. And frankly, I'll sleep easier tonight.

had not realized until i saw the exit polls how much i had gotten my hopes upangry

TooStressyTooMessy Fri 13-Dec-19 00:18:03

My parents are visiting this weekend. They will have voted Tory. Spending time with them is difficult at the best of times. I am going to hope not to discuss politics at all.

TheBananaInPyjamas Fri 13-Dec-19 00:18:12

I feel like I've been kicked in the stomach. So so sad. Already had a cry this evening.

Trying to hold out hope - but it isn't looking likely.

I really despair for the future of this country, our children, the homeless, our NHS. I know it makes me sound close minded but I honestly don't understand how someone can vote Tory. I just don't get it.

I'm sitting here silently raging at my Tory voting husband

The eldest like most of her generation is on my side and voted labour

WashingtonIrving Fri 13-Dec-19 00:18:37

I think people want to ‘get Brexit done’

WashingtonIrving Fri 13-Dec-19 00:18:57

Bloody Cameron

SukiPutTheEarlGreyOn Fri 13-Dec-19 00:19:35

It’s not a massive surprise yet I feel more devastated than I thought I would. It really is a pile of poo and I’m already dreading the thought of BJ’s gloating face in the morning. Hugs to

Foxes157 Fri 13-Dec-19 00:20:15

Bananas that's totally my thoughts.
