  • Tories on course to win majority

    The survey taken at UK polling stations suggests the Tories will get 368 MPs - 50 more than at the 2017 election - when all the results have been counted.

    Labour would get 191, the Lib Dems 13, the Brexit Party none and the SNP 55.

    The Green Party will still have one MP and Plaid Cymru will lose one seat for a total of three, the survey suggests.

    I guess that the next question is does the UK still exist in 10 years?

        According to the exit polling questionnaire people were most concerned about the possibility of Corbyn becoming PM. If you don't make Corbyn the PM the UK won't exist in 10 years?

          Scotland wants out. SNP swept Scotland because it's very heavily remain. It would be surprising if they didn't agitate for a new Independence referendum in hopes that they could rejoin EU.



          Northern Ireland is even more messy. A hard border with Ireland would break a lot of promises and could lead to a resurgence of the civil strife you saw in the 80s.

          Wales and England isn't really the UK anymore.

            Which people? English people? Or Scottish and Irish people?

                  Would you be questioning whether the UK would exist had Labour won?

                    It would be an open question because Corbyn proposed a new referendum. Brexit is what causes the issue and Tories support brexit.

                      Seems to me that the majority of the British people have told Labour that they don't trust Corbyn or the far left movement of the Labour party for the last two elections. If Labour really wanted to gain seats, maybe continuing down the socialist rabbit hole wasn't the right decision.

                        I disagree. I think that the problem was poor leadership on Corbyn's part. This election was explicitly about brexit and that was the one issue Corbyn refused to take a firm position on. So they ended up splitting with Green and Lib-Dem, who were pro-remain, letting Conservative pick up the pieces.

                          Labour MP's already spinning that this isn't about Brexit, its about Corbyn.

                          That fucker is about to be thrown under so many double-deckers its not funny.
