So really Tories are in for 8 more years if the exit polls are correct. You would never ever see a swing big enough for anyone to win in 4 years. 

 

Borris get the painters in pal you're in number 10 for a while.

How many of those that voted against May's deal and rejoiced at the scale of defeat will now be regretting their game of double or quits that could well end up pretty much at quits?

Surely Corbyn has to resign now? 

If I was a Labour supporter I'd be absolutely fuming. They've been badly let down by the 'leadership' of Corbyn, McDonnell etc.

 

I'm convinced a Labour leader with just half an ounce of credibility could have given BoJo and the tories a decent fight

Or it shows is that weak leaders who promise unicorn economic miracles and have edgy anti-establishment foreign policy are rightly rejected by the UK public...

 

All I've heard from people is that this is an unpopularity contest and people have voted for the least bad option.

 

The rotten Johnson-led Tory party were crying out for a decent moderate opposition, instead of some 19th century Leftist elitist who'd spent his life celebrating Castro and spent the while election talking down his nose at the electorate and wanting to borrow extortinate amounts of money to throw money at short-termist problems.

Post of the year.

Blair had a similar majority in 2005 and it went to a hung parliament 5 years later.

On a serious note: how accurate are Exit Polls? 20,000 odd votes over 144 polling elections doesn’t seem that representative? Or is it usually bang on?

I think 20 seats is the accepted margin of error. Could be miles wrong tho as in 92

Pretty accurate with I think 20 seat leeway it’s the biggest poll that’s been done this election

Has been extraordinarily accurate the last couple of elections.

 

Has sometimes been a bit out before, but very unlikely to be massively out.

Wouldn't be a total surprise if the majority was 50-60 - or 110-120, but very little chance of it being anything other than a significant Tory majority, I'm afraid. :S

Heard a Labour activist say Corbyn was the best man to lead the party even if the exit poll was true. Unreal this lot.
