Brexit and people buying into the Corbyn smears definitely would have influenced the vote....but even with that in mind, the more progressive parties (that at least presented an option on brexit) represented 54% of the electorate. Tories and Brexit Party represent the minority of this country, just not in parliament.

Liberalism and left wing values will continue to fight and stand up against a right wing nationalist government on a rigged first past the post system. They will find a way to get rid of this shockingly poor government who over 9 years has broken the country and divided it more than should be possible in this era. They can't hide behind disingenuous and dishonest smear tactics and Brexit forever.

Keep trolling, Barr, I've missed you.

Very interesting argument of yours Greenie quoting electorate percentages - something you seemed unable to take on board after the EU referendum. Mind you that was a single issue and I can't expect you to grasp the complexities of multiple issue General Elections and a host of candidates from all sorts of parties each standing on a different ticket. How's your man Ollie - I noticed him walking through Lewes with a face like a slapped fish.
Carry on drivelling

What is wrong with patriotism? It's not something to be ashamed of. Excellent interview with David Starkey this week on YouTube discussing the issues that Labour and the Lib Dims fail to understand and until they do will remain in the wilderness of sensible UK politics.

@Hamid Barr - gloat if it makes you feel better. I'll try to refrain from saying "i told you so", after more failed Tory years in government and a significantly poorer relationship with the EU pans out.

Your lot are in the driving seat now, and unlike over recent months/years where we have at least had some control to stop the car going over the cliff, the dual-control foot brake has been removed and Boris can freely launch us all over beachy head. You can't blame Labour, Libs, "Ollie", "Greenie" and others anymore, as much as you'll try....

@pinkie, funny way of expressing patriotism by carrying out political acts of national self harm such as Brexit and policies of austerity, meanwhile widening inequality.

Love your optimism for this country of ours GS. Talk it down all you want. Some of us are proud to be British and look forward to a good working relationship with the European union in the future.

No one's gloating Greenie that would be coming down to your level. But I have to say you've been proved wrong on all counts so far. Magnificent speech from Boris today to launch this country into better times.
Carry on behaving like a spoilt child if you wish it's great fun. Why not chill out and try a different mascara.

Proved wrong? Explain. I predicted a Tory majority.

Even if my views and opinions were in the minority (which they aren't in any case), doesn't make them wrong unless proved as a conclusively and implemented failed policy.

Come back to troll again when your lot "gets Brexit done". I can assure you it won't be 1st February 2020. There's a safe prediction. And when I mean "done", i mean fully resolved, reasonably permanent and trade deal with EU ratified....not "BRINO", as all you Daily Express readers would understand.

Yes we know GS. We are leaving the EU on 31st Jan 2020 and the trade deal with be done by end of 2020. Most people do actually understand that you know.

It's likely to take a lot longer and will ultimately be inferior trading relationships given the simple facts of buying power and influence. All those FTAs we have with many countries and blocs already that currently exist through our EU membership will be compromised.

We know the downsides, but what are the actual upsides....and upsides that go beyond either irking our European neighbours and remainers. It can't be based on misplaced national pride either, it has to be something tangible. What will the actual tangible benefits be? Seems just a stubborn pride thing to me at this stage. The benefits seemed to have been long debunked to the point where Brexit supporters just mutter "get Brexit done".

At least you're conducting yourself so well, Hamid Barr.

While I appreciate your concern for me, I'll be just fine. Who knows, with all this Brexit mayhem, the tories will probably resort to legalising and selling/taxing cannabis to fund the UKs diminishing role in the world. Maybe in just a few short years, you and I could be smoking a joint together down a local pub and shooting the breeze!
