Anyone else devastated by the election result? Please can someone tell me it'll be ok?

And please no Tory gloating, I've seen enough of that on FB.

It will not be okey

Sandaled Fri 13-Dec-19 06:27:11

What specifically worries you?

Yellredder Fri 13-Dec-19 06:28:11

Scary times.

SimonJT Fri 13-Dec-19 06:28:26

It just confirms that the majority of this country are racist, sexist and homophobic.

BeardedMum Fri 13-Dec-19 06:29:07

Where to start.... Brexit, more cuts to services, schools, NHS, NI.....

DonKeyshot Fri 13-Dec-19 06:29:19

It will be fine. Life as we know it will carry on. Some may find it better, some may find it worse. Some will achieve greatness, some won't. In other words, it will be business as usual and we'll get on with it as we always have.

Of course it will be ok.

This is the problem with living in a Labour echo chamber where opposing views are not allowed. You actually start to believe the ‘all Tories are murdering racist bastards who are going to sell the NHS and we’ll have to start paying for inhalers LIKE TOMORROW’ line. And then there’s this shock that actually, you’re in the minority.

A JC Labour government would have been a total disaster for the country. The majority of the country saw that. Not everyone who voted Tory can be a ‘thick racist cunt.’

The Conservatives have stated clearly and unequivocally, many times, that the NHS is not, nor will it ever be, for sale. This isn’t something they’re a bit cagey or evasive about, they’ve been very clear.

I think a few posters on here need to just step back and breathe a bit.

BeardedMum Fri 13-Dec-19 06:31:33

And some of us worry for those who are already struggling and it will get worse. If you don’t give a toss about other people and their circumstances you are right to crack on with your BAU

@WellErrr very well said

WellErrr Fri 13-Dec-19 06:33:09

It just confirms that the majority of this country are racist, sexist and homophobic.

Really?

This is why this is such a shock to you all. No one else is allowed another view. If they don’t agree with you, they’re racist sexist and homophobic. Or murdering cunts. Or whatever else.

This vitriol is ONLY COMING FROM LABOUR SUPPORTERS. Don’t you see how bigoted and judgemental you are?

Great result, let's get going, hope they do some infrastructure building down our way. We've had nothing for decades.

Be sensible- many new Cons seats will only stay Cons seats if the Gov invests in areas other than London. If they don't they will lose the seat at the next election. We are, hopefully , going to see some changes and a kick up the derrière for the NHS.

Wow. I voted Tory and I am none of them.

Moomin8 Fri 13-Dec-19 06:34:25

It's not going to be ok for most of us and that's the harsh reality.

Bluntness100 Fri 13-Dec-19 06:35:06

It will be more than ok, more nurses and funding for the nhs, mental health, police, education, etc and the end of austerity,

Don't stress about the soclialist hyperbole on here, it's been a bit mad for a few days as the desperation set in, and degenerated badly last night.

Spot on WellErrr 👍🏼

It will be fine. Life as we know it will carry on.

For many people it literally won’t carry on - people fail to realise this. It’s not carrying on for my mother, who could have survived had the NHS done their job properly. It’s not carrying on for those disabled people who’ve committed suicide after being found fit to work.

The Conservatives have stated clearly and unequivocally, many times, that the NHS is not, nor will it ever be, for sale. This isn’t something they’re a bit cagey or evasive about, they’ve been very clear.

Why would you believe a man who demonstrably lies in almost every sentence? Why would the public?

I think a few posters on here need to just step back and breathe a bit.

ODFOD. I’m battling against this system for my disabled children every day. I regularly see others stories that are absolutely heartbreaking about their similar but even worse fights. Breathe a bit?

MyGhastIsFlabbered Fri 13-Dec-19 06:37:48

I think labour supporters are struggling to understand how Tory voters could vote for a party with a sexist, racist, homophobic liar for a leader. I personally feel that voting Tory is condoning Boris Johnson's behaviour and that's just not on.

What am I scared of? I'm a single mum in a badly paid, NHS job, reliant on benefits to put food on the table. Where do I start?

WendyMoiraAngelaDarling Fri 13-Dec-19 06:38:03

* This vitriol is ONLY COMING FROM LABOUR SUPPORTERS. Don’t you see how bigoted and judgemental you are?*

This is not my experience at all. However I agree with the rest of your post.

SimonJT Fri 13-Dec-19 06:40:12

@nrpmum If you’re not racist, sexist or homophobic then why did you vote for a party that is pro all of those things, with a leader who is proudly all of those things?

lovemenorca Fri 13-Dec-19 06:41:19

Such relief here.
Phew!!

Bluntness100 Fri 13-Dec-19 06:42:19

Possibly. But it was more a vote against labour, literally the lesser of two evils, because the majority of people couldn't vote for Corbyn, his behaviour, momentum and the incredibly damaging mad socialist hard left policies being touted.

So it was less a vote for Boris, it was a vote against Corbyn, momentum, labour and the risk they posed to the country.

Yes, what exactly are you scared of? What Tory polices have indicated to you that you will “suffer”

confusedandemployed Fri 13-Dec-19 06:43:09

It really won't be ok for my single mum friend who struggles with her MH, who has already had her benefits stopped on several occasions for truly minor transgressions such as not stating her working hours on time (she didn't know them). She is living on a knife edge day to day, never knowing whether DWP will pay what she's entitled to. She will most definitely not be ok. And her daughter will be pushed ever further below the poverty line.

Why wouldn’t anyone believe the word of a proven liar Boris Johnson? All he know is to lie and lie and lie and lie.
