Now the GE is done and dusted, and with MP’s returning to Parliament today to begin being sworn in, we’ve locked the GE Thread last night, and you can now use this one for any Westminster related stuff.

Anything Brexit related will be moved to the ongoing Brexit Thread!

If you are quoting, please add a link to back it up. Post without and the quote may be removed.

Thanks.

He’s supposedly resigned today but just not announced.

Another one that let his todger run away with his brain.

Some people cannot handle power and it just goes to their heads, his actions show a lack of self-discipline that he was on the tv enforcing by law to everyone else.

He had to go really.

Newsnight are reporting ‘Labour Sources’ as saying they’ve possibly lost Batley this evening.

Rumours earlier that Angela Rayner may trigger a new Leadership contest if this happens.

A long night for Keir Starmer…

Labour hold by approx 300 seats on a turnout of under 50%.

Crisis averted, for now…
Second by-election in a row to go against the government - 1 in a supposedly safe Conservative seat, the other a once safe Labour seat that was seen as likely to turn. Interesting to note Galloway taking a substantial share of the vote…

Extraordinary result. Conservatives taking voters for granted by picking a useless candidate may have contributed.They got what they deserved.

Bit of a selective view this.......if you look at the last three By-elections they took one from a labour stronghold (Hartlepool), lost one to the Lib dems and failed to take advantage in the most recent one. Now I'm no fan of the Bojo gang but even I can see they're actually now no worse off over the last three than when they won the election.......

What’s selective about it? It was a comment on the two most recent by-elections, not a partisan spin on the overall state of British politics (which is absolutely atrocious on all sides IMO). Let’s break it down, see if any of it is untrue or even partially false…

1) It’s the second consecutive by-election
to fo against the government.

2) Those by-elections took place in a supposedly safe Conservative seat and a seat the government expected to gain.

3) George Galloway too a substantial portion of the vote.

All seems accurate to me.

It's selective because you clearly, purposely ignored the Hartlepool result where the Tories took a seat from Labour(with a massive swing), you instead chose to highlight the two results where the tories lost a seat to the Lib Dems and a seat where it was suggested they might also take control from Labour but failed ( by a very narrow margin, if Galloway hadn't been standing they might well have won, who knows?). Like I said, I'm no fan of the tories but you were selective to have a dig when the reality is actually rather different.

Not having a dig in the slightest, it was an innocent observation regarding the last two by-elections. It’s not intended as a suggestion that the government is somehow losing control (that would be nonsense given the scale of the parliamentary majority they command), merely a simple acknowledgment that they’ve lost two consecutive by-elections that they were expecting to win.

No further implication is intended in my original post, though I’ll answer your point regarding Galloway with the belief that the bulk of his vote came from the Asian community, which traditionally votes Labour. It seems more likely he took votes from Labour than from the Conservatives.

He could be following Hancock to the backbenches by the end of the weekend…

Gove is the most potent weapon in the current Conservative arsenal. Relegating him to the back benches would be a huge mistake.

Apparently Gove has had an affair with a man, not that the sex makes any difference but it was supposedly started during lockdown when social distancing was in place.

If it’s true, he has to go also.

Agree. They should be setting an example, if they can't follow the rules they set for us then they lose all credibility.
Be interested to know how many times the serial adulterer we call a Prime minister has done the dirty during the pandemic ;)

The irony there is now questions being asked of Angela Rayner and her relationship with a fellow married MP after the fuss she made over Matt Hancock’s situation.

Don’t matter what Party, they’re all as bad as each other ffs!
