With the BREXIT fiasco developing , with the " Remainers " , Theresa May and Philip Hammond , it NOW has to be UKIP , for a proper BREXIT.

Over to you , Sir Nigel Farage , to SPEED up this process !...

I cannot see the Tory rank and file electing an openly gay leader, and on top of that they would need a by election for Davidson to be elected to the commons first.

The next leader of the Tories will be either Ruth Davidson or Boris Johnson. Neither will dare destroy the NHS on the level that the austerity has/or Mrs May planned to had she got in on a decent majority.

The best thing to come out of this election is that the Daily Heil and The S*n ran campaigns to attempt to get their owners tax breaks under a Tory government and the people ignored them so much so that Kensington where the Mail HQ is based went red. We the people have the power no matter how much Theresa tries to ignore it

Corbyn said he would take us out of the single market and end free movement; I understand this is in his manifesto. No mandate for soft Brexit. Interesting.
The hard left of the labour party has always been eurosceptic. Remember the first referendum in 1975 was called by Wilson to appease his left wing back benchers, in the same way Cameron tried to appease his back benchers in 2016.

UKIP annihilated, NHS saved (albeit in the short term), no elected party better than a bad elected party. This election delivered in droves!
Be careful of what you wish for. May will be disposed of as Tory leader before the year is out, possibly around the time of the annual conference. Remember it is not the MPs who ultimately choose the leader, it is the rank and file membership who in the past, when given the chance always pick the most right wing candidate. That membership will remember that they were denied the right to choose last time when Leadstrum was forced out of the contest by the Tory establishment whose choice has now backfired on them.
It would not surprise me if the next leader, and prime minister comes from the right of the party in the shape of Jacob Rees-Mogg. That would very likely lead to another general election 12 months later between Rees-Mogg and Corbyn.
Now whilst Corbyn and his cronies may be feeling pretty smug at the moment, it is worth remembering something; Labour did not actually win this election, May did badly because she fought an incredibility bad election claiming that she offered strong leadership when it was evident to everyone that she is actually incredibly weak and indecisive, and a Labour party with a decent leadership should have won this election. If Labour lost and a hard right Tory administration gained a working majority I wouldn't give NHS much chance of survival.

Yvette Cooper? Is that awful woman still around?
Walk away with no deal is better than a bad deal, and certainly better than the situation we are currently in as an EU member.
Paul Nuttal? I don't agree with much of what he says, and thankfully he has now resigned as UKIP leader, but please explain exactly how is he a racist. Evidence?
I assumed that Paul Nuttal had put on his website he was a racist, maybe I am mistaken, but then again it is probably an easier mistake to make than to claim you were at Hillsborough when you weren't or that you have education beyond what you have achieved.

Seems Yvette Cooper is more popular than ever gaining 5% more of the vote than the previous election but she can thank your good old friends at UKIP for that.

Here's hoping the £350m/week on the bus materialises for the NHS sometime soon!

This country needs money invested in education and the NHS. May wasn't going to do that and paid the price, she'll be gone in 6 months, Yvette Cooper's comment of she called a mandate on herself and lost is very apt. FTR I don't want Corbyn because the policies are too radical and not affordable, but I do want a deal with the EU, this position gives a chance of all of these desires and if we never see Paul bulsh1tter racist pig Nuttall ever again then we can all be happy

My hope, and it's probably a forlorn one, is that everybody in these Islands (including the Republic) off the west coast of Europe will be either united, perhaps in a federation of local nations, or independent as each may wish but united in a local trading bloc, and trading not only with Europe but with the world.
Nice thought but like you say a forlorn one. Given that the UK is Ireland's biggest trading partner and as you said England is Scotland's biggest trading partner you would have thought someone would have given it some serious thought.

I concur with most of that, except for your last paragraph. The DUP are unionists, not nationalists; they want to remain part of the UK. Sinn Fein are nationalists not unionists, except insofar as they want a united Ireland.

Together, we in these islands can do so much better than the over-sized, anti-democratic and failing EU.

As for Nicola Sturgeon and the Scottish Nationalists, their bubble was always bound to burst sometime, and their obsession with independence combined with a crazy adherence to EU membership was their undoing: for example, Scotland's free trade with the rest of the UK far outweighs its free trade with the EU.
I am not, and never have been, a Tory supporter, but this is a very bad outcome for the United Kingdom. I should add that I feel strongly about the Union and have always regarded myself as being British rather than English.

On the face of it a good night in Scotland because 60% of the electorate voted for pro-unionist parties. It is a long time until the next Scottish parliamentary elections and one can only hope that anti referendum parties can maintain the momentum up to then, and Sturgeon has had her fingers burnt enough not to try for another referendum in this Scottish parliament.

But there is also a risk to the Union posed by this election. Obviously the Scots need to be convinced that they are stronger with England than without, but they also need to be convinced that the UK as a whole can prosper outside the EU. By messing up her campaign Theresa May has made her job of dealing with Brussels very much harder. The EU probably see her as a lame duck with questionable judgement.

I think it is highly unlikely that May will fight another general election as leader. For credibility the Tories need a new leader but I doubt very much they will call another election in the next year, for one thing I think voters are pissed off enough as it is. That means negotiations with Brussels will be carried out by a government without a popular mandate for at least 12 months and the government could be hampered by opposition parties at Westminster.

I am wary of doing deals with any nationalist party, and the DUP are nationalists of a kind in that they represent an electorate defined by region and ethnic identity, because these parties can exert an influence out of all proportion to their numbers.

So the people have spoken. What they have actually said is beyond me.

Thanks to previous Labour (Blair/Brown) and Conservative/Lib-Dem (Cameron/Clegg) governments, the national debt was increasing to an ever greater extent'. The Conservative government led by Theresa May knew they had to deal with this as well as coping with Brexit. A general election must have seemed like a good idea at the time, but the Conservatives began with an ill-thought-out manifesto, and continued with a terrible campaign, which did nothing to win over floating voters. http://www.conservativewoman.co.uk/andr ... ell-earth/

Most UKIP voters, wanting to ensure an easy Brexit, voted Conservative, but this was not enough to counter the general tide of votes.

The Labour Party, on the other hand, more or less promised the earth as usual, without mentioning how it was going to be paid for in view of the mounting national debt. Many Labour voters who were considering changing to Conservative were deceived by this as much as being put off by poorly-presented Conservative manifesto promises. In addition, a large number of youngsters, influenced and indoctrinated by the Marxist-feminist-PC pro-EU teachers embedded in our education system, were voting for the first time. Many of these will grow older and wiser, but this is why so many youngsters and students are on the political left. http://www.conservativewoman.co.uk/tom- ... ted-youth/

As for Nicola Sturgeon and the Scottish Nationalists, their bubble was always bound to burst sometime, and their obsession with independence combined with a crazy adherence to EU membership was their undoing: for example, Scotland's free trade with the rest of the UK far outweighs its free trade with the EU.

So what now? This article perhaps indicates the way ahead for the Conservatives who will have a (albeit much smaller) working majority with the help of the DUP: http://www.breitbart.com/london/ The Conservatives will thereby hope to survive for the next five years (unlikely), or certainly until the Brexit negotiations have finished (or failed). If they fail, in my view we should walk away with no deal; even that would be better than the situation we currently face as an EU member. We should certainly not capitulate to the EU negotiators' belligerent bluff and bluster. My own feeling is that yet another general election is looming, perhaps within the next 12-18 months, possibly sooner. Will Mrs May still be Prime Minister by then?

Feel free to disagree.. 8-)
