That’s what I’m reading for the Brexit Party. Wonder if they’ll get > 50%

It shows how it's a real waste for getting seats - fine for the overall remain vs leave but really they probably just made "remain" lose seats.

How do Remainers see the diff between Lib Dem’s and greens?


In remain terms, nothing.

Obviously more widely Lib Dems are centrist, Lib Dems more socialist.

Good shout Sam.

Amazing isn't it.

Imagine when he came home at Christmas talking like that.

Still being beaten by a collapsed UKIP is humiliating. Those UKIP votes were equally wasted.

True.

Looks like in remainy parts of London you might get about 7K votes for Change UK in each borough.

Hope they haven't prevented remain party seats.

Corbyn lost to Lib Dems in his own constituency. On his birthday apparently :lol:

One of the few fun highlights on what will be a depressing evening. How Farage can convince that many people to vote for him, his party and/or his ideology is beyond depressing really.

Another thing that seems disappointingly clear.

In the northern areas where turnout was really low, Brexit Party voters did actually turn up, Labour didn't bother.

Difficult in all this is it seems where remain is strong, the % is up but that doesn’t change the vote or amount of MEPs.

Same in leave areas. They are pissed off but still miles ahead.

This success for Brexit party will now put pressure on the Tories to put in a Brexit/No Deal PM.

Esther McVey anyone????

I think Change UK are deluded about talking about a "merger" with the lib dems. Why would the Lib Dems want to merge with them. If I was the Lib Dems I would take the Scarletts take on merging. I.e. They will wear yellow, Vince Cable will be leader and they will be called the Lib Dems.

That was always the prediction.

You'd need a pact between Green, Lib Dem and Change as a "remain party" to win lots of seats.

Ed Davey "Brexit party have done OK"

:lol: Good spinning

Fingers crossed for the overall remain vote - lots of Brexity areas to come like the South East and East of England.

Yeah, the Changers are typical for modern politicians: 'we are breaking away to work to Remain in the EU, but we couldn't possibly join or actively work with other parties that want to achieve this.'

Labour Party holy shit.

Labour win by a couple of votes from Lib Dem’s, who won by a couple of seats from BP.

23.7 to 23.6 to 23.5 in Croydon.

Holy shit that’s as close as it gets.

Just chatting to the (labour obvs) mayor of hackney and a couple of other council level labour party people. They believe that if there was a GE tomorrow, both Corbyn and Abbott would be seriously in jeopardy.

Happy days

I have a lot of sympathy for the Change UK MPs

They knew the career risks, went out on a limb for damn good reasons, and at the time Lib Dems still looked shot.

Unfortunately things "changed"

I'd love to give them the excuse of 'naivety' for thinking they could change politics by themselves as a single party. But I'm not that naïve.

Bare in mind that the likes of Luciana Berger were deeply unhappy about anti-semitism.

They wanted out - not just expected to storm the next election.

They were the only party that vowed solemnly to deliver Brexit, hence they got such a strong result. If you want to Remain you could vote Lib Dems, Greens, Change or SNP. Even Labour at a push, if you were on the Keir-side of things. So those parties are sharing votes, which undermines a clear message.

Nobody knows what the Conservatives would/could do; it's surprising they still have the votes they do have.

Good result for remain in the EoE

Brexit party wins as expected but I think the polling suggested they would get 4 seats
