I'm not anti Conservative so I don't have a desperate urge to bury the Tories. Few reasons why but it's just not a school of thought I've ever subscribed to. However I've said from the day she got the Conservative leadership, and therefore PM that Theresa May is incompetent and would do more to destroy the Conservatives than any Labour politician could. I don't know what Tories see in her, And this snap election proves my point. She had a working majority, not the most comfortable but a majority and very supportive opinion polls from the public. Labour were still a shambles and struggling to get behind Corbyn. In her hubris and arrogance she assumed she could get more of a majority just by having an election. Her manifesto, without doubt a rush job that was almost insulting showed that arrogance and lost her massive public support.

Meanwhile Labour smelt blood, rallied behind Corbyn and fought a competent campaign overall, Dianne Abbott being their weakness, not a shock there. I'm not a Labour supporter, I dislike socialism but when you compare the two manifestos, Labour's offers hope while the Conservatives offered despair. It's no wonder when May would struggle to charm a puppy that the Tories messed this up. Whatever happens Theresa May will not be leader of the Conservatives for long. Oh and as for my party, the Liberal Democrats? We never seem to fucking learn.
Well the libs have learnt to not prop up the tories again

Fair summary. Initially expected the Lib Dem's to do well with Remain Tories & moderate Labour voters flocking to them. Not happened at all though.

I think this has a lot to do with remainers accepting Brexit is happening. For the time being...

Farron tried to rangle the anti brexit types. Should have gone for the liberal Tories. Firmly at his door.

Yep,  I think the Lib Dems were the shock of the night. Thought his gambit on Brexit was about right, but it didn't work out. A lot of soul searching for them.
I have one word for it....

Clusterfuck!

Best comment so far.
It will take years for the Lib Dems to live down their period of propping up the Tories.

Corbyn is not a socialist he is a social democrat.

Mayhem is not the Iron Lady she is the Tin Lady with no heart.

Corbyn is not a socialist he is a social democrat. Don't agree. Brown, David Milliband, Andy Burnham etc are Social Democrats. Corbyn not. McDonnell in past interviews has even admitted that he's a Marxist.
