U.K. Election result
« on: June 09, 2017, 07:49:25 »
Bit of balls up!

Lots of questions to be asked now!

Still Brexit?
May out?
Who will be PM? Rumours of Bojo 😮
Labour do some sort of deal with the other parties?

A real mess tbh, especially with Brexit negotiations due in 11 days time.

I can't see how May can stay on personally and since this election was supposed to be about Brexit, questions should be asked on whether we still go down that route, it seems clear the public have rejected the Tories stance on it.

Hilarious. She has made a complete arse of herself. Cameron made a big fuck up having the referendum and she has matched him here.

It is very, very difficult to say where we go from here. The only thing that is clear to me is that elections can no longer be predicted with any great certainty days or weeks in advance.

Not sure if this is correct but I wa reading that if the Tories put forward a queens speech to form a government and it gets defeated in the commons, Labour then get the chance to put forward a queens speech for government, which will also get defeated and if that happens we have to have a new election within 25 days!

Yes, but it seems the DUP will prop them up for now.

Given that the DUP tend to say "No" to most things I can't see this "arrangement" lasting too long.  ;)

The Tories really have made an almost unimaginable pig's ear of the last 2 years, starting with the Old Etonian twot sticking the EU referendum in the manifesto to stop his right wing moaning.

What a dog's breakfast! May's clever plan (on the face of it) - to increase her majority and isolate the right wingers in her own party from interfering in her brexit negotiations - is now in tatters. In the DUP she's saddled herself with something even worse!

Yes - it's hard to see how she can make this work from here. She has a very brief window of opportunity to reset her agenda, reinvent herself, and stay light on her political feet (something which her past record suggests she will not find easy) otherwise she'll be gone in a matter of weeks or even a few days.

The leader of the DUP, Arlene Foster, signed off on a renewable energy scheme that gives those signed up to it £1.60 for every £1 of fuel they burn.

To date it's costing the taxpayer £500 million.....
