And we’re off! Emily Thornberry Labours ForSec has already got me well into my drinking game. I’m worried that I’ll run out of alcohol if this continues. mount
1st result in Brexit Party have 39% of the vote. But ET is sticking to the tired rhetoric of calling for a 2nd referendum.
The story that’s emerging is that Brexit party is doing really well, in fact their % share of the vote is x2 that of LibDems, not that you’d get that from Ed Davey MP.
Another result, another whopping victory for the Brexit party, who got double the vote of the 2nd placed Lib Dems
London has declared LD”s won, no shock, but the story is yet again the 18 % for share the Brexit party. Emily Thornberry is confusing her mouth with her anus. SecRef? Laura K giving her a grilling over her vacillation. Good.
Heidi Allen from Change UK costing me lots of drinks
Good analysis from John Cuticle, essentially polarization more entrenched = share between parties for hard brexit as for remain. LK thinks parties that have clarity do well
No news of rest of Europe yet. Yorkshire&Humber declared Brexi party x2 share vote of Labour
Quote of the Night by Mark Fracoius MP on Tory loses ‘The effluent product has affected to the rotary air conditioning unit”

Because traditional election night results show follow a ‘who’s done well, who hasn’t, what does this mean ‘ formula and gets party apologists to parrot pre-arranged talking points, the astounding success of the Brexit party is not given the prominence it deserves or explaining the reasons for its success imho
John Cuticle is saying the result is, in its simplest form, a draw.
Headlines about results in France and Germany, but apart from that, nothing. Poor
BBC coverage over so time for bed!
