Singing 10 German bombers and a few Brexit chants. There are some very fine people amongst them.

The advantage of BREXIT, we can stick them on the Schengen database and have done with them.

Another Brexit dividend - every town centre will be full of these c*nts who aren't able to travel to away games. Hooray.

Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Sighs of relief all around
Labour has held on to the marginal seat of Peterborough, overturning predictions that the contest could deliver a first byelection victory for Nigel Farageís Brexit party.

Conservative share of the vote was well down!

Peterborough gets the (antisemitic) MP it deserves. Message is now clear, vote Tory, get Corbyn. Lib Demís werenít able to capitalise on the euro elections either.

A six week old party not winning every election it contests is now a cause worthy of celebration?

Show how far the goalposts have shifted, doesn't it?

If it were that simple then, yes.

6 weeks ago the bleating was incessant. They were going to landslide everything (there's even a bit of bold cheerleading on this thread IIRC). Big talk which has now dulled down to "well you can't expect us to win".

I think the real point to this is that people have stopped short of letting a bunch of charlatans with a single aim and no method to get there shimmy into mainstream politics.

But, hey, they're all winners, right?

Three percentage points short? Second place?

The take home message must be that the Brext party is obviously finished.

Honestly?

Not sure they ever got started. Yes, they're throwing money at publicity to get themselves noticed but it's all wind and piss.

Labour lost 17% of their vote share from last time out. Tories lost 26%. Brexit went from nothing to +29%. Labour also have an organised team on the ground getting their supporters to turn out. The Brexit Party are so new that they donít have the necessary structures in place yet for polling day.

That is not what we were hearing last week

Just what would it take to get the BREXIT party to win a seat? They had every advantage:
- A sitting MP recalled
- The labour candidate involved in a scandal the week of the election
- A constituency where 60+% voted in favour of BREXIT
...

If this trend continues Trump will be welcomed by President Corbyn of Socialist Republic of England!

I wonder what would happen if Corbyn DID become PM AND we didnít leave the EU. Can you imagine it ? There would be mayhem. A hard left socialist trying to run a country where a whole bunch of right leaning people would be fuming. Itíd make for interesting viewing!

True about LibDem; just goes to show that Brexit (Leave or Remain) is not the top concern for voters!

The Brexit shambles has shelved every other issue, and probably the embarrassing in-fighting, back-stabbing and complete lack of control, leadership, authority and credibility.

Just a guess.
