May looked and sounded like she knows it's over - she's gone, I think.

[edit] Which, of course, could mean another 'unelected' PM

....and another election ?

Extraordinary evening, night & morning. A well measured acceptance speech from Mr Corbyn.
A real poke in the eyes to those lizard like daily mail & Sun headline editors.
Excellent coverage on fivelive.

And also, strangely, with the success of Sinn Fein (who won't take up their seats)

Blimey.

May is dead woman walking - the government of the Living Dead?

DUP will have real influence (where do Sinn Fein's 6 (?) seats move the 'line' to for the Tory's to scrape past legislation?). Climate change sceptics I'm hearing??

'Strong and stable'? :lol:

If I've worked this out correctly, Sinn Fein's 7 seats (not taken up) move the 'line' for a majority to 322. Tory's will end up with 318 or 319 seats.*

So a battle between DUP and Tory 'remainers'. It won't be plain sailing.

* And it's Kensington - KENSINGTON!!! - that's in the balance (count suspended for 40 winks)

indeed - Sinn Fein got 7 seats so probably won't show up anyway which will enhance the numbers - i didn't get the analysis of the independent's and what they are up to - may should crawl out - the brexit issue was never going to be easy - launching a botched campaign on that and not showing up for a leadership debate didn't up her rating's for sure - one constituency only had a two vote difference - can't remember which one! - job done this morning - slow pint and crossword!

I'm just gutted that Lord Buckethead and Elmo didn't defeat the ghastly woman.

Son-in-law bet on a hung parliament and made a £55 profit! Theresa May made an ordinary guy richer for once

Howling 'Laud' Hope (Monster Raving Loony Party) Stood against Theresa May (4th from right)...

I saw him on This Week with Andrew Neil as well - he wasn't very funny. :(

Sutch was much more rock'n'roll.
