So explain again how Scotland is a country of decent liberal people and it's just the Englishmen at the border who might occasionally skew the results in the favour of the Tories?

Is Aberdeen on the border now? >_>

Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Tories started handing out free phylacteries to help their base get to the polls.
Not a winner anymore.

So is Cordonblue gonna be PM now or will there be a conservative coalition to get majority?

Boris ?!
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

May will try to form a coalition with the DUP (right wing Northern Irish bastards) and rule with a tiny majority, but her party will probably be out for her blood and I can't see her approval rating go anywhere.

Corbyn and labour will try to make a bid for their own minority government but it seems unlikely that will happen.

It's also possible that there'll be another general election this year to iron things out. (LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL)

Boris would seem like a Machiavellian supergenius if he made a leadership bid now but there's plenty of the Tory party that doesn't like him.


I can't believe UKIP is fuc​king dead. Press F to pay respects ;____;
Not a winner anymore.

Rural Scotland is just England that got lost.

They said the same about Corbyn and Labour.

Corbyn has a dead man's switch. If anyone tries to oust him that isn't a proper bleeding heart socialist then bang goes the youth vote, apathetic urban minorities and pacifists, Labour reverse all the 'uge gains they've made in this election and the whole infighting cycle starts again. Even the most rabid anti-Corbyn with an ounce of intelligence knows this.

I think the smart move for labour now would be to try and stack the shadow cabinet with more professional looking lawyer types like Keir Starmer and Emily Thornberry to sway the kind of soft tory voters that don't like austerity or hard Brexit but won't vote for someone who looks scruffy.

Sam's basically right. The party establishment might not like him but the supporters like him enough to feel motivated to go out in the rain to vote. That's probably worth putting off some swing voters.

The DUP are anti-Europe (Ie pro Brexit) BUT they want to keep a "frictionless border" between NI and the Republic of Ireland, which means unless RoI leaves the EU as well the DUP basically have to support a "soft" Brexit where freedom of movement is retained.

Soft Brexit where we ditch all the parts of the EU that people actually like and keep the thing Brexit voters actually wanted rid of.

Truly the work of a mastermind.
Not a winner anymore.
