Surely you lefties cannot be surprised at the result?

So if you think BJ is doing a terrible job you are a leftie?  41% of the conservative parties are lefties then Cheesy. I think it's about what I expected, expected him to win but lose face massively - exactly what has happened.  The beginning of the end for BJ, he will struggle to get anything passed. This just puts up in bright lights what we already knew, the Tories are a mess and a divided party.

Agreed, mind you the Tories would be very brave to stick him up as the Tory candidate next time around

Buys him time to put things right, if he can. Either way, the world still spins and I get up for work tomorrow, I really don’t give a fuck. However, I love the wailing and gnashing of of teeth on this site. Gives me a warm feeling. Still each day brings us all nearer the next GE. Fun times, fun times.

I think all of the wailing and gnashing of teeth will be on the tory back benches, not on here.

Ah Teflon, bit like a certain Anthony Blair?

What on earth has that got to do with anything?

Yes, but what about Lord Palmerston?

In football terms, this feels a bit like Sheridan suggesting he was resigning and then showing up on Monday and saying he'd decided to carry on.

PPE Contracts for their pals whilst business owners and the rest of the world struggled, Wine time and music whilst the country lost their nearest and dearest and cheese boards and castles whilst loved ones were told to socially distance at funerals.

Rotten party, rotten people.

In all honesty if there was a snap general election I would have no clue who to vote for. More than likely not the 'top 2' parties anyway. Such a shame politicians in general appear so unlikeable these days.

Doesn't Keir have the power to call on a vote of no confidence in parliament? If 40something % of his own party want him out, then surely BJ has no way of surviving?

Not exactly sure how that works.

I don't really care if they are likeable, just competent and (relatively) honest would be an improvement on what we have today.  

The next general election is going to be like the last, people voting for parties that they wouldn't usually vote for, for reasons that are nothing to do with their manifesto.  The last general election was all about whether you wanted Brexit or not, nothing to do with the party manifesto - the next one will all be about making sure that the current chancers in charge no longer are.  In my opinion, their only chance of staying in power in the next GE went last night, when the majority of the of the tory MP's went into self preservation mode.  Quite funny really if we didn't have to live with them for the next 2 years.
