I bet the Tories can still work floating voters with dire warnings of a Lib Dem vote is a vote for a coalition of chaos. A popular Labour leader helps the Lib Dem vote.
I find it profoundly disturbing that 12000 people saw fit to vote for a crook.
Bizarre, isn't it? It looks as if his much-vaunted "local popularity" was actually a thing after all.
That's interesting and heartening. The Brexit Party voters showed up in the Valleys in the Euros, so I was worried. But that's a single issue election on literally their signature issue.Killer Whale wrote: ↑Fri Aug 02, 2019 1:20 pmI've spoken to a couple of people from over on the dark side of the border, including one that was at the count, and they're saying that this was taken over the line by practically all of the Labour and Plaid votes in the Swansea Valley part of the constituency going Lib Dem. No evidence whatsoever of big Valleys Brexit vote there, which is interesting.
Also, UKIP beaten by the Loonies. Can they go away now, please.
Finally, on the Brexit alliance thing and people adding the Tory and Brexit party vote together, the thing is, the whole reason we're in such a mess is that you can't just add Brexit votes together. BXP has come out as solidly no deal. The Tories have a significant number of 'Remain is better than No Deal' members and particularly MPs. There's no coalition there. At all. You'd be more likely to see significant numbers of remainers peel away if offered Norway/EFTA (Plaid's position immediately after the referendum, co-incidentally) than any agreement amongst Brexiteers.

Right on fucking cue.

A coalition with the Brexit parties is the only solution Boris. This will show you mean business. Put party loyalty on the back bench for this one. If not your toast.

If there is an election, I predict the leave voters will be split and Farage will unwittingly let the Lib Dems in to number 10. ALL Remoaners will vote for them to stop Brexit' because Labour is toast.
