To be expected. The Labour party does nothing for the average working class. Long live Boris!!

You are correct, we live in a democracy and its is your right to complain about the result. At least we can finally put all this nonsense of a second referendum talk to bed though!

I must admit in recent weeks I seriously thought I would have to put my body on the line and stand and fight the anti-Semitic Labour supporters were they to win. True Brits would always stand up for the rights our Jewish minority! The wave of relief when that exit poll was announced was was simply something else. I LOVE MY COUNTRY!!
It's funny how the whole subject of the Jewish community and antisemitism was only a "thing" when there was an election at stake.

I'm sure they were thrilled to bits to become a vote-winning political pawn to be dragged around the Tory shop window for a few weeks.

How about the letterbox faced and piccaninny smiling minorities?

If you only favour one minority, you’re not really helping.

My father in law doesn't know who his parents are or what his date of birth is because antisemites destroyed all records. My Grandad fought antisemites for 4 years. Britain was a sanctuary then and yesterday's vote has restored my faith now that we have destroyed antisemites again! Rule Britannia!

Assuming you mean seats, what about Cameron in 2015?

If you mean votes...hasn't happened for many, many decades

Not all Labour supporters are anti-semitic. Why don't you get this straight?

I'm glad that you finally got that everyone has the right to complain and it's not reserved to a selected few.

It's actually funny to see that the Brexiters have been complaining about lack of freedom of speech, snowflakes and virtue-signallers ganging up on them and the reality just proved it was the other way around.

Because that requires critical thought and a sense of perspective.

Neither were all Nazi voters in the 1930s. It still didn’t prevent the Holocaust from happening! You can accuse me of Godwin, however it’s the single biggest example of what happens when good people stand by and do nothing! That is what a vote for Labour was, standing by and saying “we condone antisemitism”!

I oppose all forms of discrimination. All forms! Boris Johnson is not a racist, simple as that.

Are we witnessing the advent of BDJ? Boris Delusion Syndrome?

Back now!

Boris Johnson’s record of bigotry, antisemitism and far-right politics must not be forgotten

Maybe not (who would really know? Politicians can say whatever attracts more votes) but will he be good for the job? There were no signs he affects political scene in a positive way. I think he'll create a mess that British we'll need a couple of generations to clean it up.
But hey, let's leave it at that.

The jewish community and other pointed out Jeremy's racist friends, colleagues, associates and his active participation shady organizations (STWC) since years. I think the even EF had a thread about it.

You chose to ignore it and support a party led by such a problematic person.You get to own this problem.


Luckily for Britain most people chose otherwise.

I hope the Labour party will regain it's senses soon.

I expect they will.

Just a pity it took them an election to awaken to the fact.

Do you have evidence that I voted for Labour? It's news to me, if you have...

Or are you just doing that thing where you randomly jump into a thread and tell everyone what they are thinking and doing, regardless of whether it's based on fact or reality?

I'm sorry I bore you with facts.


For the others who posted in support of Corbyn and/or assumed that being critical of corbyn must mean that the person is a Tory yet didn't vote labour - I apologize for assuming they did.

You clearly don't or you are a bit dolly.

You've given your vote to a proven racist instead of one who has never been proven to say anything anti-Semitic.

So, what's your real reason for voting for Bozza, as this cognitive dissonance isn't cutting it.
