How Joyous

The general view is already explained here. But isn’t this just iced cake?

The other big loser of the night was Liberal Democrat Jo Swinson, who lost her East Dunbartonshire seat

Sadly she’ll be right back as Baroness Swinson but still, nice to see.

  1. Well, that £3 I invested in the Labour leadership election a few years ago has just paid a handsome dividend. 🙂

  2. Wondrous night, I thought brexit was lost back in September, but flexible BoJo secured a deal with the EU which I believe was the foundation of last night’s thumping majority.

    Interesting to see how flexible BoJo will now be given his large majority.

    And the best thing: the people’s vote lot and their sycophants and enablers being completely buggered

  3. If you combine the vote share of Labour, Lib Dems, SDP & Greens you get more than 50% so obviously Boris has no mandate…

    Place your bets on how long until we hear that argument.

  4. “Is there anything to be said for a second, confirmatory election?”

    Only after Gina Miller challenges the GE result in the courts…

  5. Sanctimonious Jo is now self-identifying as an ex-MP. She may well try to re-transition after counselling…

    The “if you add up everyone who didn’t vote Tory (including people who didn’t vote at all) then we won” brigade is already at it over on the Guardian.

    I heard it on the BBC this morning when they had the obnoxious Ken Loach, a Momentum woman and some other Labour bigishwig.

    The counter is:

    1. LibDems claimed that if they’d won that in itself would be a mandate to Revoke A50. See, a GE does give you a mandate no matter what the size of the vote in percentage terms, Blair had 35% in one of his victories.

    2. Those who didn’t vote were saying they accepted the decision of those that did, so should be added to the leave column.

    Sadly the other big loser of the night was Liberal Democrat Jo Swinson, who lost her East Dunbartonshire seat to the Scottish Nazi Party giving the Turdgeon dictatorial regime a monopily

    Let’s hope she’s not right back as Baroness Swinson, but becomes a housewife

    Very good, new keyboard please

    C4 News were promoting “majority voted remain” view tonight; I expect Marr et al will be pushing that on Sunday
