It was inevitable really but the plunging purple bar on the charts does look lovely Smile

I'm made up too as we say in Scouse land

CaulkheadUpNorf · 09/06/2017 01:18

High UKIP area here. I'm pleased.

Part of me is singing with joy. But in reality it's because the conservatives have taken on their mantras re immigration and brexit.

Hopefully we won't have to hear them spout rubbish about 'forrin ' aid and burkas again though!!!

That felt like the one bright spot at 9.30pm yesterday!

UKIP eradicated - such happiness.

Bye bye UKIP Dont let the door hit you in the arse on the way out.

YANBU, but it looks as if corbyn bribing students with tuition fees has just about done the trick. Sadly they'll all be graduating into a country with horrific debts and no jobs. But hey, at least they'll own a piece of railway each!

Fucking hell May!

RedHelenB · 09/06/2017 01:34

Like the Tory pensioners last time?

cardibach · 09/06/2017 01:38

Dan that sounds very sour grapes.

EveningShadows · 09/06/2017 01:41

Labour aren't going to win Dan, but a massively reduced Tory majority May spare the most vulnerable in society from the complete shafting they were predicting.

EveningShadows · 09/06/2017 01:41

may not May! Grin

Dandandandandandandan · 09/06/2017 01:42

No. It's not sour grapes - I truly and honestly think if he gets any power, the country is shot at. He has committed to spending billions and hasn't even put the Brexit bill in there at all, to give just one example. He'll spend spend spend for 5 years and then the same students will have to pick up the bill, but from an even deeper hole.

Won't bother me - we'd emigrate. He's made it perfectly clear that high earners aren't wanted in his vision of Britain! But it makes me sad to think that he's duped people in this way, and that they'll end up carrying the can.

Dandandandandandandan · 09/06/2017 01:43

Evening - THAT is the good thing. So long as she isn't replaced by Bojo!!

metspengler · 09/06/2017 01:45

They didn't really go for anything and pretty much supported the binary vote.

The interesting thing is that there seems to be quite a lot of UKIP voters who have turned to Labour.

Dandandandandandandan · 09/06/2017 01:46

But they were labour voters to start with, most likely. My uncle had voted labour for almost 60 years; he went to UKIP. I just don't think May thought about that!

SilverdaleGlen · 09/06/2017 01:46

Hurrah I don't agree with much on here politically but this I can raise a glass to!

gunting · 09/06/2017 01:46

Yes and very confused that they are being split down the middle Tory and labour!

Ceto · 09/06/2017 01:52

Let's hope Trump is realising the utter pointlessness of letting Farage suck up to him.

Dandandandandandandan · 09/06/2017 01:52

UKIP share split 7% to Tories; 8% to labour according to swingometer. But that's probably almost exactly how they all voted before ukip!!

20nil · 09/06/2017 01:55

Precisely. UKIP hoovered up Labour and a Tory votes so their collapse now is taking things back to the norm.

Yup. Shut the door on the way out. Traitors.

Dandandandandandandan · 09/06/2017 01:58

The stupid thing is, that was fairly obvious. Most people are creatures of habit after all. Why didn't May see it?!

Dandandandandandandan · 09/06/2017 02:01

Farage saying he'll come back to politics if we get a corbyn coalition. If he'd said that earlier, might have been fewer labour votes!

Ceto · 09/06/2017 02:11

But realistically how can Farage come back to politics? He will realistically not have a credible party to come back to, and I can't see the Conservatives letting him come in on their coat-tails.
