It's hilarious that the left think Boris is Literally Hitler while the right think he's Tony Blair with a worse haircut and less PR sense.

What you think with the track record they have that this is untrue? I never mentioned the H word, I just say the Tories and their track record is ******ing appalling.

He wanted to tax me more as well, I still voted Labour.

I prefer being able to watch the horror stories and say to myself "I voted against that". I don't regard my personal enrichment over others as the most important thing in the universe.

I appreciate that you are looking after your nearest and dearest and maybe because of my childless state it makes it a lot easier for me to make that call, but I just cant reach that point. Maybe it will get easier now I have no sympathy for working class folks that have clearly voted for their own destitution.

It was the school thing for me above all else. I adore my kids and pay huge money for the best they can get. To take that away - because of envy - they can feck off.

Presentation matters but integrity matters more. Let's see how alienated voters feel after another five years of economic decline and Brexit disappointment.

Sorry but BJ is in power. Presentation (your friendly local bumbler! haha have a pint with your chum Boris! Look, he’s driving through some styrofoam! Good old Boris) IS far more important than integrity. Sure, have a leader with integrity if you want - but they need to have an acceptable brand at the same time. 

The book needs to have a great cover AND a good story. 

Tories will be in power a lot longer than 5 years.

They’ll further consolidate their grip on media, and place their supporters into positions of power throughout our systems.

The Left hate Blair more than they do Boris.

Blair was Judas the betrayer. Johnson is a self-absorbed twit recruited to do the banksters' bidding.

Not sure it was envy, especially given the narrative of hypocrisy. Maybe just a badly thought through attempt to better fund mainstream education.

I still agree that they should lose their "charitable" status though, thats nuts.

The economic fundamentals suggest otherwise.

You, the media and Dominic Cummings can carry on believing it's 1983 again if you like. But I promise you, it really isn't. ?

Many Universities are also non VAT registered.

Shall we add VAT onto tuition fees?

New Labour, the Blair years - they're not wanted back. Corybn was a response to that, but not the right one. They need to find a New New Labour, and if they find one they could be in a good position next election. I expect Conservative support to drop quite a bit once Brexit is in place, since it was a good part of this election - although how much of it is pro Brexit and how much anti Corbyn...

The domestic policies were very popular. But Labour voters were not prepared to swerve the ref vote.

We can come back to this conversation in 5 years.

I’m a socialist and I vote left but I’m also a realist and Brexit/Trump taught me to listen to people outside my bubble. This swing to Conservative was easy to see if you just paid enough attention. 

It’s regrettable but until Labour present a better, stronger option it’ll stay this way.
