Or did I misunderstand and the contention is over something else?
    Ultimately I think the governing party coming in fifth place in any kind of country-wide election should be cause enough for a GE. It clearly calls their democratic mandate in question.

    I mean it is amazing that UK voters have no idea what European Parties are but the Greens/EFA with which the Green vote will be seated are staunchly pro-EU. Labour is seated with S&D which is also staunchly pro-EU.
    So no, I am not saying it is anti-Brexit, I am just saying it is pro-EU.

    The Tories should resign because they are completely unable to govern and for no other reason, that's kind of the point of a government.
    I cannot really contest that. It's clear that the UK electorate largely doesn't give a shit about the EU elections and has not for a fairly long time after all. I do think that such a poor performance by the governing party always does mean something though.

    The quote function is restricted since certain posters, invariably neo-liberal centrists, are protected. The post does not appear and goes to moderation if you use a direct quote while on a new account. This is one of the reasons why I tend to give the remainers a harder time even though I'm closer to their postion than dribbles et al. I don't like the idea of any view being protected from disagreement by censorship.
    I'd love to see evidence of censorship in this thread beyond your own posts in which you invariable feel compelled to swear at some other poster. Dribbles has openly called for war against the EU and no one ever infacts him, it's most Remainers that he manages to troll hard enough that end up with infractions, if at all.

    Unfortunately I suspect it is just a protest vote and the hordes of tories will mostly crawl back to their party at the next election.
    If the Tories fail to deliver Brexit by the next GE I honestly believe that Farage will hammer them. Even if they deliver a BINO they will lose a substantial number of votes. Only recourse for the Tories to not be wiped out at the next elections seems to be for them to deliver a hard Brexit before the extension is over; at which point it will be up to Tory Remainers to actually act and vote against their government in a vote of no confidence.

    Most importantly, FPTP will make the results of an election where the two party system seems splintered truly "exceptional".

    There is a troll candidate, he insulted a female representative by calling her ugly (there is no other context in that tweet).

    I rather you attack that troll candidate by saying he disrespected women and therefore he is unfit for office (duh!).

    Instead, all those crazies cannot help themselves and must lie and call it some "R tweet". Seriously. Shake my head everytime, don't ask why the alt right is growing bigger and bigger.

    I *suspect* he's referring to Carl Benjamin, aka Sargon of Akkad, regarding his tweet that he would not even rape a certain MP. But it's kinda difficult to make sense of his post.

    Yikes, Shalcker/Dribbles would be proud. "Send a message to remain in the EU" was literally all over their advertising material for this election.

    There's been an awful lot of talk about whether I would or wouldn't rape Jess Phillips. I've been in a lot of trouble for my hardline stance of not even raping her.

    I suppose with enough pressure I might cave. But let's be honest, nobody's got that much beer.
    I must be missing the part where he mentions that she is ugly?

    In short, both extremes won, that being anti and pro EU.

    Big difference between the two beyond th obvious is that the pro EU groups are far more United about their goals. While the anti groups are far more divided ,which is why most aren't bothered at all about their gains.

    So, have we got the actual Brexit Party policies yet? Or are they still essentially nonexistent?

    He isn't just demanding one, after his overwhelming victory last night with almost twice the seats as his nearest rival, he is going to get a role.

    Quite right too.

    Wouldn't shock me if that was all they had.

    Also seems like Sajid Javid is throwing his hat into the ring for the Tory leadership.

    Farage/his party didn't do enough to get a no deal Brexit. Will take a lot more than just putting Boris in any sort of office to get it.

    Quick hint though: you're not getting a no deal Brexit.

    Thank you, thank you. But not even I can take all the credit for the electoral map of the UK looking the way it does today. You almost need a microscope to find the ever diminishing remain areas...

    lol at still thinking these elections give anybody any power within the UK, do you not even know how EU seats work? And its not like it even represents what the people want with only 37% voting.
    Joe Biden is a rapist and his supporters are rape apologists
