UK Votes

Two months ago, Theresa May called for a snap election to strengthen her position going into Brexit. It looked like a great decision — the conservatives were leading massively in the polls. But she promptly blew all that and, tonight, it looks like the conservatives will lose their majority and have a hung parliament. Labour — lead by Marxist terrorist-loving twat Jeremy Corbyn — picked up a lot of seats but not enough to take the parliament. May is likely to step down tomorrow.

May pulled a Clinton on the UK — managed to lose an unlosable election. Crazy times.

    This morning, it looks like she’s going to try to forge a coalition with DUP.  Should be interesting.  But this throws Brexit up into the air.  What a mess.

    Yeah, we wouldn’t want any terrorist sympathisers in the Government, would we?

    Hal you could come with similar narratives about a whole heap of politicians based on those ‘connections’. If you meet with everyone it’s very easy to cherry pick and conclude that the person ‘loves terrorists’. Seems a little lazy.

    “…the DUP’s leader Arlene Foster met with the UDA’s chief during the election campaign, just 48 hours after the murder of a local man in a supermarket car park.”

    “…considering all the Conservatives’ talk about Corbyn and the IRA, it is now they who are entering coalition with a political party that has been backed by a terrorist organisation.

    Such a move will have dire consequences for the peace process. In so doing, the Conservatives are essentially telling the DUP that they will turn a blind eye to it returning to the dark days, when Northern Irish politics was intertwined with bloody violence. This may embolden paramilitary groups in Northern Ireland who feel that they have been given a get-out-of-jail-free card from the Tories’ deal with the DUP.”
