"They must be OK with what we are doing, they keep voting for us"

Also that twit Daniel Adams a couple of years ago "every time we have a vote, Labour lose seats"

(or similar)

Maybe, just maybe this is the beginning of the end for shitest Tory party ever. The start of a reset point

Good post Batch, I bet local MP Justin Tomlinson will be crying as we speak😀

Bazil Solomon unseated, wonder if he'll defect back to Labour next time.

With a 30k plus majority Tomlinson can probably afford to remain quite smug.
Buckland on the other hand will be sweating big time, particularly as Labour look to have a very good candidate for Swindon South.

Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here? Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
Crap!

The rise and fall of Robert Buckland....he's had his time now that Borris is nowhere to be seen and like you say Tomlinson is fairly safe in North Swindon.

A low bar but, imo, Robert Buckland didn't make for the worst Lord Chancellor of this century.

I don't understand STFC, so as an Out of Towner I'm sure I won't understand the local politics.

If I could only get rid of one of the Swindon MPs, Wonga Tomlinson would definitely be first out of the door. But the majorities are the wrong way round for that really.

In the redrawn constituencies that were put forward last year, I think wichelstowe and Wroughton get thrown into a new ‘north Wiltshire’ seat at the next election - goes as far down as Marlborough.

I’d assume Buckland would take that if it came to it, and win quite comfortably

I know the ID thing was talked about in the States where Voter Fraud is constantly peddled, (usually whenever the Republicans lose the election) our area didn't have a vote this time as our council has recently been adjusted and I can kind of see why ID might be needed, but reading about the small number of cases on here, and the issues that people are having with ID, it does seem somewhat pointless.

At least someone has come and out and said it! https://twitter.com/implausibleblog/status/1658122224136597504

1700ish she doesn't get elevated to the Lords...

Genuinely no idea what is going on.
