Not for me BJR. I campaigned for the Labour Party and it become increasingly obvious Corbyn was the greatest asset my party have had for many years, especially the young are now invigorated by his style of politics and are here for the long term.

I have to agree.  I'm not really a socialist, yet two of my grand-children voted for the first time in their lives, and voted Labour.

 

My main worry is that with such a close result, we won't have any stability for a while which will allow other countries to try and influence our way forward.

 

I do have a sneaky admiration for Corbyn, but cannot agree with some of his policies.

May was awful and got what she deserved.

 

You got someone actually speaking out about the unfairness of trying to balance the books by attacking the worst off in society coupled with a good campaign on social media and there's your result. If the Tories hadn't have taken back seats in Scotland, we'd be having another election now.

 

Only a few days to the Brexit negotiations - I'd be speaking to the EU about a postponement as we're clearly not ready and the EU are so we'll get taken  to pieces.

Looks like the Queen has a far better grasp of what is going on in the country than Theresa May.

 

So when your 91 year old gran knows what is going on and you at 60 don't, something is badly wrong!

 

Another election by the end of September this year?

More than likely as it seems that the Irish DUP WILL be holding the whip-hand !!

The DUP having the controlling votes is just wrong.

 

Firstly, should the government be in a position to effectively bribe a party in order to keep power?

 

Secondly, it suggests that the government is taking sides in Northern Ireland, which is a dangerous thing.

 

See if we get through the vote for the Queens speech first.

 

Wrong, just all wrong.

Looks like there may well be a left v right revolt in the Tory party.  Sackings fron the front bench

 

I can see another general election before too long.

 

Corbyn looking more confident by the day.

Looks like the tory boys are going to regret getting their worms out in class and if too many have to resign, it looks like the very slender majority may slip away and there could be a change of government?

I have to admit that things are looking bad for all the political parties, but to be honest NO M.P.s really relish the idea of a snap election.  They all secretly admit that the Brexit negotiations must be completed first, or this country might just as well turn all the lights off and move abroad.

Pretty much every recent poll is showing an increase in both people now wanting to remain in Europe and people regretting voting for Brexit . The whole situation has split the country and has divided parliament . Add to that a weak prime minister , weak government and potentially mp’s losing their jobs over scandals then we are in a right mess. I really don’t know what the answer is

Things seem to be going from bad to worse all round.

 

Another front bench Minister has to resign after more allegations of sexual harassment.
