Election results 2019: Conservatives make gains in Labour heartlands - BBC News

  • Published on Dec 13, 2019
  • The Conservatives have taken a string of former Labour strongholds, with the party forecast to win the general election with a comfortable majority.
    Jeremy Corbyn said it was a "very disappointing night" - and he would not lead Labour into the next election.
    Lib Dem leader Jo Swinson has lost her seat to the Scottish National Party.
    The BBC is now forecasting the Tories will get a majority of 74, with Boris Johnson saying it was a "powerful mandate to get Brexit done".
    Labour have lost seats across the North, Midlands and Wales in places which backed Brexit in the 2016 referendum.
    They are set to win 63 fewer seats than in 2017, it is suggested.

    London Labour is what most Northerners see the party now.....The North shouldn’t have voted Tory but we should create our own Northern Coop party. Fook the London middle class Labour Party.

    All reporters should walk away immediately from people who speak using that pathetic, annoying rising inflection, like the Lib Dem supporter at 1.25. You're not clever lad, you can't even speak properly.

    Watch the BBC be nice to Boris for a while, as the licence debate is looming and hundreds of racially picked staff could be on the dole. Just die BBC, you are hated with a passion by millions!

    So we learn that they are the most privileged English people who voted for the Labour Party and that workers who used to vote for The Labour Party when it defended their interests no longer vote for them. Maybe it's not the voters who have changed but the Labour Party?
    And we have separatist nationalists... Who are more identity than the Conservatives...

    I love these political activists - they'll make any excuse they can to explain the failure of their ideological representatives. Maybe people just don't want what they're selling.

    And Scotland is the UK's California.

    It is VERY simple. Boris was FOR something and it was clear what that was. Labour and Libdems just had a whiney anti victimy mentality with no positive message. People want to know where a leader wants to go, not just what they are against. So simple. Jo Svenson kept on harping on about her own personal gripes with spoily brat look on her face and Corbyn was all about radical socialism with no believable economic or defence policy, not to mention Brexit, and he too had that bull-dog just ate a wasp look about him. Boris might be a bit Monty Python at times, but he is clear, mostly positive and generally quite affable. It just proves that the victim mindset doesn't work and people don't want it.

    LibDems failure down to refusing democracy, a total denial of peoples rights even though she just blanked out the fact the majority of voters do not want to be part of the EU and Remain MP's did all they could to hijack our democratic process for 3 1/2 years. Plus Swinson last minute woked words over gender self identification. She basically stated that a man even a dangerous as yet not convicted man could self identify as a woman and enter public toilets.

    I'm north west working class. The labour party dispise the white working class ,always have done. They see them as little endlanders who won't accept mass immigration. Labour want mass immigration so these people vote for them .Seamus milnes, corbyn, Blair, Abbot ect all of them want and did change the UK landscape because they thought we needed diversity in our lives. Why was labour not out on the streets with mega phones organizing marches about east European competing and taking working class jobs if they were looking out for working class interests ? But they held marches for immigration and against foreign wars. You ever noticed how labour areas are always high crime , low jobs, desperate areas ( I live in one ) same as the Democrat party in USA. Labour is run by facist left wing socialist who despise a working class man in the pub watching the England match. Go read the guardian comments left wingers preparing for war go read it their facist who use violence if things don't go their own way. Winston Churchill .....the facist of tomorrow will claim to be anti facist. I was born in a labour area it's been a constant shit hole. Go educate yourself read about socialism, Communism it's all no borders no national identity and not to be patriotic , go read it. The university has Bern taken over by left wingers training the next generation about diversity ,then these students are getting in to position of power and dictating how we live in a left wing world.

    Your heads must all be absolutely fried in England, defies belief voting for the Tories after what they’ve done. Suppose Labour are a mess too and weren’t much of a better choice but still 🙈. What is now clear as day is that Scotland is completely different politically from the rest of countries in the UK and the sooner we are officially an independent nation the better.

    Well my daughter is realising her full potential at University and the elderly and disabled are enjoying their perks thanks to the SNP as well as the heap of other incentives funded by the SNP from which we in Scotland are ripped off and short changed in the U.K. budget share after our many Scottish commodity revenues like oil, gas, whisky , electric power grid , fisheries , agriculture , tourism etc etc generate ££billions for the U.K. -Tory run treasury in London from which we are given a paltry amount back ...and they can keep their Barnett formula which is a con to keep us in this shambolic one - sided UK ‘ Union’ and is a pittance compared to what Scotland generates via commodities and taxes.
    My daughter is doing great at a University and my eldest son at college , both realising their full potential....
    Thank you Ms.Sturgeon 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿👍👍😀😀🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿👍
    Would never get that from a hateful and spiteful Tory government
    Scotland has again overwhelmingly shown we don’t want to be run by a vile Tory dictatorship who risk selling off our NHS and other public services ...Tories are a cult hell bent on privatising everything for self profit and greed.
    A Tory bunch of Etonian racists , liars and greedy self-centred chancers who mock the poor , sick , disabled and even the dying are fair game ...kids included.
    Always delighted to vote for the only party standing up for fairness & equality and standing against racism , right wing hatred of the poor and disabled, sick , greed & corruption ...the Scottish National Party 👍😀✅🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🕺
    Let’s now look to get the remaining 6 seats back from these disgusting and hateful Conservatits 🤮👍
    Even many English folk up here vote SNP because they know they stand up for the right principles and their policies are the most fair , balanced and best and we don’t prop up the corrupted privileged who think they should be tax exempt and look down on the poor ...even the vile bedroom tax imposed by the Conservatits is being subsidised by the SNP for Scotland’s poorest .
    Boris Johnson and his vile Tory cult aren’t wanted up here with his cheap slogans and soundbytes and ignorance and hateful of Scotland , we will decide in the end our destiny and not have it dictated to us by the rabid Tory cult.
    Toxic , corrupt , dishonest , racist , hateful Tories have no place in Scotland and the electorate have hammered home that message.
    Scottish independence is the only way to go to avoid o and off decades of disgusting Tory austerity , hated of the poor, sick , disabled and the dying and seeing Scotland as a constant cash cow and the English , BritNat Boris Johnson and his cult of rabid followers.
    SNP all the way 👍🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿😀🕺
