Which brexit supporting parties would that be then as I have not seen any on my ballot paper? We will now have to await for the pollsters to do their bit to give us an idea of how and why people voted the way they did. 

There were plenty of Kippers standing. The Tories are a Brexit party too. Neither of them did very well.

Did you bring your best (knock off) crayons?

True, but it seems that although UKIP didn't get any councillors they do seem to have increased their portion of the votes.

Another five year old. I suppose it gave a poor tired ballot paper counter a laugh.   

 

Did they have one bin for all the spoiled papers or did they have different bins for different scribblings?

 

Traitor! 24

Free Tommy Robinson! 12

Leave means Leave!! 64

Make Britain back British! 6

 

I bet all the spoiled papers were done in capital letters and had at least one exclamation mark after it. 😉

They’ve lost 145 seats so far. Not much of a triumph.

A good day for the Lib Dems. Time to stop punishing them for the coalition.

Why? They were supine and awful. They allowed the marketising of the NHS which has been a failure, allowed themselves to be used to deflect blame from the Tories, and most importantly ensured that the poorest are still paying for the mistakes of the rich and powerful in order to placate Tory focus groups.

They were a joke in the coalition-at best they tempered the usual ire towards the working classes but achieved nothing. 

 

How could the Liberal Democrat’s possibly align with the Tory party while staying true to themselves.

 

Them winning seats is just people who have  decided to vote against the main parties and can’t be bothered to research what other options there are.

And you achieved what exactly other than making yourself look stupid? you would have been better off voting for a pro Brexit party. Childish.

Sorry, I still don't understand what the promised brexit was...

 

But then again it was never explained what it would be.

So - you can't complain about what is delivered (even if it is remain).

 

But you will - won't you?

Blue passports. 

£350 000 000 a week to the NHS

Simple trade deals around the world 

Free unicorns 

No blacks, no gypsies, no gays.

 

I’m pretty sure that was the gist of it.
