She isn't. Though I've been at loggerheads as she used party funds for brexit campaigning.

How do people in NI vote for the DUP, they are actually retarded humans. Vote leave and absolutely fudge NI economy because you might damage the republics economy​ as the main benefit.. Sound logic.

These people need to be exterminated.

I think what will end up happening is their economy gets so destroyed they will end up in a few years voting to join roi, ROI will vote no of course.

Sunderland Central

Lab Hold.

Better for Cons than the EP again. Share +10 for C

Swing from L to C of 2.3%

AGAIN; Conservative doing substantially better than Exit poll suggested

Don't really see how, they would vote to damage Ireland rather than look out for NI. They are absolute apes of humans, you don't want them and neither do we.

To imagine these things would be the kingmakers in a government, my god.

You literally can look at these chimps salivating at the fact they might be able to bend the Tories and get some more public funds out of Westminster. How yous don't despise then IL never know.

But it appears 37% of the British electorate have voted for Corbyn, surely that's as bad.

Unless people voted for Labour because of Corbyn
It does look like he energised younger voters in a way Keir Starmer or Chukka probably wouldn't have.
Maybe.

But the Tory campaign was so cynical and negative that maybe they energised young voters against it.

Young people don't want "Brexit means Brexit" and years of austerity.
They'll not be giving a fudge about brexit when we actually do get years of austerity.

The man said they don't factor postal votes in (apparently 25% of votes), just assume it has correlated with normal voters.

The SKY news wonk said that the swing to Labour is much more pronounced in constituencies that voted remain, and in those with more university graduates. He seemed to imply that the UKIP transfer to Cons was smaller than expected. in the NE seats.
The national swing of 2% is a bit of a misnomer as it appears that the picture shifts for nearly every constituency. Which is probably why there is a +/- 20 seat caveat on it.
