    Two equal top percentages for me were Brexit Party and Labour. No idea how that happened - suspect I picked some vague ones that were part of Brexit Manifesto.

    Some of their policies in specifically jobs and democracy are very appealing. As was some of Farages policies at UKIP. Theyre almost new Labour policies in fact.

    Even without the Party name i could spot Labours policies. They're only equalled by the Greens with how outlandish they are, the Labour Brexit policy is quite easily the worst of the lot. He should have listened to Keir Starmer and just campaigned straight up for remain.

    Its a real conundrum this election Main issues for me are:

    1) I think it is essential that Brexit is an issue for as short a time as possible now so either get it done or bin it - I really couldn't be bothered.
    2) Education - back to a system of maintenance grants for all UK students. Cancel all existing student loans. Massive research funding for UK universities
    3) Transport - bin HS2 (complete waste of money), re-nationalise trains and subsidise train travel to encourage use
    4) Energy & water - renationalise or at least only allow UK companies to own them

    Looks like a lot of Labour heartland has seen tons and tons of leave voters coming out to vote. Looks like the North is going blue.

    I said months ago on this thread that Labour would get battered and was told I chat bollocks. Even if this exit poll is horrifically wrong, the Tories have won a big majority. Labour are completely and utterly out of touch.

    Thank you.

    That would be embarrassing for Corbyn.

    Labour voters don’t believe in him or that he is genuinely Labour.

    Labour can lose Bolsover, looks like it's a too close to call. That useless waste of space Dennis Skinner will finally lose that ****ing seat, man is completely useless.
