It's only an exit poll


'The English'

ssd Thu 07-May-15 22:48:29

well it wasnt the bloody Scots, was it?

TwoLeftSocks Thu 07-May-15 22:50:22

Not all of us. And it's only the exit poll.

SqueezyCheeseWeasel Thu 07-May-15 22:50:28

No, you're right. We're all just one big, homogenous right wing mass south of the border


MadameJulienBaptiste Thu 07-May-15 22:53:47

Well we're hardly likely to vote SNP in England are we?
besides, the votes aren't counted yet so no one knows who we voted in. Instead of staying up I am having an early night to get up early for news of the hung parliament shenanigans real result.

Don't you think it is possible that the Scots may have elected a Tory government by booting out the Labour MPs who might have otherwise helped to form a majority?

Guyropes Thu 07-May-15 22:58:13

You Scots should have given us a few snp candidates to vote for!

MuttonCadet Thu 07-May-15 22:58:58

Well yes, the scots have effectively voted in a Tory government.

Superexcited Thu 07-May-15 22:59:31

^^agree with permanently exhausted. If the exit polls are accurate then the SNP voters have made a big contribution towards labour getting less seats and baking a Tory led coalition more likely. The SNP voters are not the English!

ThroughThickAndThin01 Thu 07-May-15 22:59:37

Yay, very happy.

Well I haven't voted in the Tories. Sounds like my friends North of the border may have kept labour out though.

MishMooshAndMogwai Thu 07-May-15 23:03:06

Agree with above- the increased SNP support has done the Tories the world of good. More fool Scotland.

I personally, as part of 'the English', voted labour both locally and generally so yanno, out of the 2 of us (assuming you voted SNP with the rest of 'the scots') who did the most damage?

ASAS Thu 07-May-15 23:03:30

Can't stand this shite. 'The English'? Grow up.

How about A- we wait and see and B- we don't delight at the sheer division that will be the SNP legacy. A stronger voice in Westminster? In Scotland you speak for health and education and you've wrecked both.

And The Scots have voted in a one party state and shafted any ideas of socialist solidarity.

ssd Thu 07-May-15 23:05:43

no, I voted labour as I could see an snp vote would help the tories

god help us all.

meglet Thu 07-May-15 23:06:45

I didn't sad .

DressedUpJustLikeEdie Thu 07-May-15 23:08:19

I never really doubted it. i knew it wouldn't be a massive majority but I knew there was never going to be a really serious, viable alternative.

Brandysnapper Thu 07-May-15 23:11:32

What socialist party is there for us to stand beside? You don't mean Labour do you?

Bair Thu 07-May-15 23:24:51

Aye, Labour is so fucking socialist.

Some English voted SNP

On the current exit poll even if scotland had returned all it's labour seats it still would have been 36 short.

If the exit poll is correct then ed Miliband and labour have failed the country . And Better Together destroyed Scottish labour

awful news to wake up to

I stand by what I said yday, although labour were crap and there wasnt much choice in England.

SoupDragon Fri 08-May-15 08:03:28

no, I voted labour as I could see an snp vote would help the tories

So why are you blaming the English given you recognise a SNP vote was a vote for the Tories and that's what the Scottish voted for...?

FWIW, I don't agree with the threads blaming the Scottish voters either. The UK a a whole voted the Tories in again.

ssd Fri 08-May-15 09:15:33

look at the political map, the tories were voted in in mainly the south of England, the UK as a whole didnt vote them in.
