MP's in parliament tried to take on the people and those that did are now forming lines at their local job centre, those that survived the mauling are left licking their wounds. There are no road blocks left in Parliament. the people have cleared the decks. The arch remainers are gone. some jumped before the axe was swung, others where slain at the ballot box. the Beast of Bolsover is no more, Jo, poor Jo Swinson Lib Dem leader, promised to revoke Article 50, Her Constituency revoked her status as an MP, bye bye Jo, from Prime Minister in waiting to waiting to sign on. Chuka Unmunna liked musical chairs so much he went from party to party until the music stopped and he was finally chuka'd out. Then we have Dominic Grieve Agent in the field for France and EU, left grieving his failures, but no doubt he'll once again receive a French civil honour. to put with his previous one. Anna Soubry, as nutty as they come, now starring in her local theatre as the ghost of election past. all in all what a great night. with such a whopping majority and the confidence that gives, i'd be telling the EU, your agents in the field are no more. and push for an even better deal, in fact i'd tell them here's a FTA take it or leave it. if they agree then under WTO rules we can go on trading with one another under the current circumstances for a period of upto 10 years. until the FTA is signed. solves the so called Irish problem as well. The road a head is clear, the UK now leaves the EU. re bolded.... pity Yvette Cooper didn't get the boot... but she NEARLY did with her share of the vote slashed.. looking at the 2017 / 2019 results a first reaction might be that the Brexit Party split the vote... but I saw an interview with Farage where he was saying that tactically he had placed BP candidates to take votes away from Lab not Con... and that's what could have happened here... even though the BP didn't win a seat... they were shoring up the Pro Brexit Party which was the Conservative Party... Bringing Up the Rear... In other words.... if the Brexit Party hadn't stood in the Cooper Constituency her majority would have been MUCH bigger... and as it was she nearly got ousted..
