First topic message reminder :

The key questions for me:

How many Leave voters still want Brexit;

Of those who do, how many put Brexit before all else;

What damage the Brexit party will do the the Conservatives' hopes of taking Labour leave seats.

Those early swings and that early Tory gain show it’s going to be a painful night for Labour. No doubt.

Also looks pretty definite that the Brexit Party are taking more Labour votes than Tory ones.

They can't force a referendum, but if they are denied for 5 years by a tory government then this will only make the independence support increase because there will be more fuel added to the fire by saying that the English are blocking our right to decide etc. In 5 years if the election is closer between labour and conservatives and the SNP win again then they will get their referendum but with a lot more public support which will have been built up over 5 years of a tory government denying them.

Well, yes, but then 5 years is 5 years. That's the point.

It looks like Labour is finished as an electoral force unless some kind of surprising moderation occurs that finds a new niche like New Labour did. The more likely scenario is, at best, Labour peg the Tories back to a slim majority or possibly coalition govt again. Still, that doesn't deliver a mandata for independence or a referendum either.

The Tories have barely ever been more inept, and yet they've held power for a decade and will continue to as well. As the incumbent govt it's only increasingly likely that they hold on to power.

So that's the point. People misues mandate in the media to mean something entirely different. There is no mandate because the SNP cannot bring down the Tory majority if it is anywhere near as sizeable as the exit poll suggests.

Scotland can bang on about 'England blocking their vote'...but yeah, that's generally how it works when you lose. They lost in 2014. Cannot see a Tory govt agreeing to another one. It only happened last time because of the Lib Dems.

5 years is the max.

A Scottish independence referendum has already been passed by the Scottish parliament. The snp have won the Scottish election in 2015, 2017 and again in 2019. Their main policy is to have a 2nd referendum on independence. The UK parliament can't keep denying them.

Blyth was won by 700 votes - Lib Dems and Greens won around 3000 votes combined, never minded the 3500 odd the Brexit Party took as well.

That's the reality of tactical voting. Neeeeeeever works because people don't care. Too wrapped up in the idea of self importance and "can't vote for Corbyn/Labour" etc. Can hardly blame them about Corbyn, but no one really votes tactically - they want other people to.

If Labour, the Green and Liberal Democrats worked together to form a remain alliance then this election would have turned out differently. Instead the Lib dems and Labour went head to head resulting in a tory win.

You'll have to help me out here as I'm not too hot on Holyrood and how it works - but doesn't it need legislation in Scotland to pass, and then Westminster to pass a refendum bill as well?

In which case I'm still struggling to see how the SNP can force the issue unless there's something built in to devolution that demands Holyrood can force Westminster...because the UK parliamentary SNP MPs in Scotland can't do a thing.

Yes it needs Westminster to make it legal under UK law.

The coalition government had a big majority in 2010 and they were both pro-unionist but they still gave the SNP their referendum because of the support it had in Scotland. That support is massive now. I am pro-unionist but I can't see how the UK government can ignore it.

Really? You think Boris' Tory Party plays by the rules?

I can see quite easily how the Tories avoid it - because there's a very clear probability that the Yes vote would win, where it was unlikely last time (everything felt unlikely pre-Brexit). That, and the fact that he's got a huge majority by the looks of things.

Yep, Labour on a permanent downswing it seems.

Oh well, time to pay the broadband bill! Will be interesting to see if Corbyn actually resigns. Every election he’s led Labour into has ranged from failure to outright disaster and this is the biggest disaster of the lot. But if he doesn’t resign, because he’s extraordinarily stubborn, it could actually be difficult for Labour to force him out.

Corbyn’s gone. I think he was gone even if they won 260 odd seats again and it was a hung parliament.

It the Corbyn party now though. So will be interesting to see whether the membership show any introspection about what wrong when choosing the next leader.

Journalists (and the BP defectors) have hopefully learnt now that the Brexit Party are taking chunks off the Labour vote in the north and that Farage was right to say that.

But he let them down. In fact, you could argue this weakens any influence over Brexit now and lets down Brexit Party voters and (prospective or otherwise) candidates who wanted a no-deal or hard Brexit.

Would agree to an extent, but it’s not as though the Brexit Party had any realistic prospects in this election. The Brexit Party and Farage have done a good job in 2019, winning the European Elections and focusing Tory minds on Brexit, lessening the chance of a second referendum or outright revocation of article 50. That’s about the maximum influence they could exert. If the Brexit Party stood in all the seats in the GE what would have happened - more votes, but still no seats. No tangible difference.

The Tories have a majority now and they must get their deal through or Farage will return (again).

Tories take Leigh from Labour (that was 50-50 on the exit poll), which was Burnham’s old seat (remember him, he was the favourite in the 2015 Labour leadership election).

DUP lose North Down in an absolute shock.

Can Corbyn now go down as the worst Labour leader? I think he holds a lot of responsibility for the Brexit vote too, they're getting hit hugely in Leave areas, more so (obviously) than Remain areas.

So, in this GE, did they achieve nothing? Leave voters went Tory, they won't influence Brexit policy or negotiations, they alienated supporters and could lose out on any chance of a No Deal

Achieved nothing substantial, other than nicking Labour votes and helping Tories in by the back door in some constituencies, but neither were they in a position to achieve anything of note in a FPTP election. Two second places in Barnsley likely to be the high point of their night.

The party could come back if the Tories mess up Brexit again, but I highly doubt it. Farage talks about electoral reform, but I don’t think he’s especially interested in that fight.

Probably. He’s lost to a dismal and disliked Tory Party by such a substantial margin that Labour are out of power for at least two more election cycles. Quite astonishing that Labour have only had three winning leaders since the war.

Exactly the same as here. Only Whitlam (1972), Hawke (1983) and Rudd (2007).

Not sure about that. Tories went from sub 200 in 2005 to over 300 in 2010. Plus Johnson’s approval ratings are already dreadful - essentially he is just not Corbyn. No reason Labour can’t be the largest party in the next election if they go in the correct direction.

Tories take Redcar, that’s just silly. And they’ve taken Ynys Mon which the exit poll only gave them a 5% chance of doing.

Not to mention that he might not get his chance to lead the party to recover in the initial period. Probably far out of his hands

Tories take Blair’s old manor as the BBC slightly downgrade their exit poll results.

Odd resignation from Corbyn by specifying the next ‘GE’ campaign which could be 4-5 years away. He needs to clear off as soon as possible for his party’s sake, and Labour need to install a new leader by the Spring Conference.

About halfway through and the Tories are around 9% ahead of Labour in the vote share stakes, indicating the polls were largely spot on, as they often are when there’s no major surges by any party.

Johnson increases his majority, so much for Labour being just 1% behind as they were claiming.

Swinson goes from PM in waiting to unemployed.

This thread tomorrow is going to be mad. Between the death of Corbynism, Swinson falling, Tory huge majority and Craig waking up covered in tartan semen.

SNP performance very similar to 2015. Under 50% of the vote in Scotland, but over 90% of the Scottish seats, which is important to bear in mind when considering the chances of Scotland going independent from the U.K. in the near future.

Grieve defeated in Beaconsfield.

I mean, they're not going to get a referendum while Boris is PM and the Tories hold a majority. End of story.

Tories win. And Dennis Skinner has lost his seat after all these decades.

Gauke loses, joining Grieve from earlier. Couple of good and unexpected holds for Labour in Sheffield and Dagenham.

Can’t wait to tour the new Tory heartlands - Durham, Bolsover, Bishop Auckland, Sedgefield, Barrow and Stoke.
