That would be absolutely hilarious! :lol: 

It's normally around 4:30 AM it's announced. The exit poll won't give a clue.

I'm expecting a Tory majority btw from comments online. Hopefully it isn't too big. If it's only 30 ish, then 15 marginals only have to go the other way. If it's 50 ish... we're doomed.

Nice one Jezza! :lol: 

R.I.P. Jezza. Even Remainers voted for Boris, a lot of tactical votes

Now the Tony Blair gang are going to take over

They are calling it 86 majority on the radio which I have just put on. It is a shellacking for Jeremy.

If Blyth Valley becomes Tory that is literally seismic. Corbyn will have been utterly trashed, the most miserable defeat in parliamentary history if he has lost Blyth Valley to the toffs.

The UK is NEVER going to vote for a left wing government. Blair did it by moving to the centre. I've been banging on about this since Ed Milliband had his arse handed to him. This is all on Corbyn and his cronies and Labour really need to have a word with themselves.

I wonder if Priti will visit my constituency now?

The antisemitism and terrorist stuff has followed Corbyn round like a bad smell. And you then have his policy on Brexit which is the very definition of fence sitting. In fairness to Boris he ran a good ''Boris like'' campaign replete with JCBs and dogs and bumbling - I even think his interview dodging was tactically clever. I have said it before but Boris is far more popular among the general British public than he is with the liberal media such as the Guardian, BBC and Channel 4 - celebrities also. I actually think the more the chattering classes hammer Boris, the less effective it is with the general public. Even his shagging and lying is seen as more an amusing thing rather than something to crucify him with.

If that exit poll is even close to being correct, that is absolutely hideous for Labour.

Word of caution. The exits were wrong in 1992 and 2015.

Not quite as they were predicted hung parliaments but we ended up with small (10 seatish) Tory majorities.

Blyth Valley....

PS

A (presumably failed) Labour candidate has just completely slated Corbyn saying, ''this is all his fault''.

I agree about centre. But this election was about Brexit. Boris made a deal (soft brexit) That was May's mistake. She called an election without a deal. Besides she turned into a robot. So she ended up with a hung parliament. Labour and Corbyn were never clear on the issue. His campaign was about nationalising railways, free housing, free this and free that. On top of that, he shoot himself in the foot with the antisemitic controversy.

This time, the likes of Alastair Campbell are going to start a riot at the center of Labour Party

Labour are fucked regardless. The changes Ed Milliband made re membership and voting makes it extremely unlikely that a centrist candidate will be elected as leader.
