Well, the Labour/Lib pact is working out well. Keep it up, chaps.

The swing from Conservatives to Libs was quite historic....poor old Helen was a lamb to the slaughter.

Food for thought for the Tory MPs who are keeping Johnson at the helm of the sinking ship. Man the lifeboats!
(But on the other hand, don't : Johnson is the gift that just keeps giving)

Que the Tory lackeys lined up for media interviews this morning ready to dismiss these results as "Mid-term blues" and "We're getting on with the business of delivering for the British people " 🙄🙄

The usual mindless crap we get from politicians.
Oh , and don’t forget they’ll have to sneak something in about delivering Brexit to the poor unsuspecting masses.Wait a minute though , that’s not turned out too well , perhaps sweep it under the carpet eh?

Considering the by-elections were on the 5th anniversary of Brexit you'd thought that would have been part of the Tories campaign and what a success its been, Perhaps in their leafleting, Big guns coming down from Westminster lauding it to the masses? Surely even our PM went to Wakefield and Honiton/Tiverton to bolster support, Oh hang on......🤔

Just to add to the fallout, Oliver Dowden has quit as Tory Party Chairman saying "Someone needs to take responsibility"

Starting to desert the sinking ship eh! Perhaps Tavy had better keep his head under the parapet for a while , Tories aren’t exactly the flavour of the month.😀

No they're not and you can bet while Johnson is out of the country behind the scenes in Tory gatherings they'll be whispers I'm sure. The unique thing about these two by-elections is that they're totally different types of voters, One in a total rural setting and the other from the industrial north, Two types of voters from opposite ends of the country both saying "We're not happy" that is the big problem for the Tories.

They can roll out their set of prepared excuses all they want, but mid-term blues doesn't explain losing a 24k majority. And to do it twice in 2 years is pretty stunning. Plus if this is anything to go by then the electorate are waking up to tactical voting, which is very bad news for the Tories.

Really it's a shame Starmer isn't a better leader. In my mind he was never meant to be a prospective PM, just steady the ship after Corbyn. But Johnson's absolutely spectacular self-destruction has made the prospect of a Labour minority government a real possibility.

So who would you fancy as their leader then Hermann ?
