I like to go to bed and wake up to it all. Like a sort of Anti-Christmas.


Anniegetyourgun · 08/06/2017 21:24

You're going to drink non-stop for five years? Is this wise?


Highalert · 08/06/2017 21:25

I half expected the first reply to be 'oh fuck off'' Grin

I've never seen so many fuck offs on MN.

Fun avoiding the news and social media and the distraught Scream Mask Face of your nearest and dearest for as long as possible too. I reckon I can spin it out until I go to work tomorrow afternoon, if I avoid all other people including DH.

I've got the Rioja out for the exit poll Wine


waitforitfdear · 08/06/2017 21:29

Bloody hell started already.

I voted Tory by the way.


Highalert · 08/06/2017 21:32

f you voted Conservative, finish all of your drink.
If you voted Labour, share your drink with friends.
If you voted Lib Dem, decide you didn’t like the drink you were given, go for a second one to replace it.
If you voted SNP, do the same, but maybe with Scotch.
If you voted Green, pour your drink into a pot plant.
If you voted Ukip, make it a pint of strong lager (not continental).
If you voted for one of those mad independents, good for you. Take the night off.

If the exit poll makes you happy, sip your drink smugly.
If the exit poll makes you sad, neck it in one.
If the exit poll makes you feel nothing, perhaps turn over to Mock the Week.,

YANBU. I'm getting drunk in a bit. It takes the edge off iving in a grim future dystopia where selfish, cruel people have all the power.

Here's to five more years of our offshore tax haven loving, property owning, disabled-attacking, tory overlords.

And someone buy Amber Rudd some toothpaste. I've been dying to say that for days. How can you have offshore accounts in the Bahamas, wealth most of us can only dream of - and have teeth like a cemetery that's been trashed by a hurricane? That's the biggest puzzle of all to emerge from the past couple of weeks.


NoWordForFluffy · 08/06/2017 21:39

I started drinking at about 4.30 on the train home from Scotland...I need to start up again, I think!


SailAwayWithMeHoney · 08/06/2017 21:41

Yanbu. Anti Christmas indeed! 🍷

I'm with you 'highalert'! Wine Might just keep drinking through tomorrow depending on the outcome!! Wink


MaidOfStars · 08/06/2017 21:48

I always get pissed on election nights. I'm three large G&Ts in already. My husband hasn't even gone to bed yet. I came home with biscuits, Pringles and tonic water and he said, 'Oh yeah, I meant to ask what you were doing tonight' and winks.


AnguaResurgam · 08/06/2017 21:51

Yes, but shit putting Mock The Week on at exactly the same times as exit poll results expected. Should have made it 15mins later (enough to grab headline, then have half hours comedy, and turn back later for hours of commentary filler before there's anything substantive to say
