Working majority down to 1 after defeat in Breacon for the Tories.

However scratch beneath the surface:
- Brexit supporting parties command a majority
- Labour down to 4th with just 5% of votes.
- electoral pact between Plaid, Greens & LD’s unites the remain vote.

What does this mean:
- clearly Boris needs a similar ‘Brexit pact’ if he goes for an election
- could a Remain pact work across the country? I imagine some squabbling amongst the local parties when it comes to it.
- Labour are in massive, massive trouble. With JC in charge, they are doomed.


Exactly...........A Tory/Brexit Party pact wipes Labour off the political map for a generation .
Lie Dems only have limited appeal to the electorate so aren't a major threat.

This By-Election has shown Boris and Farage the way forward.

What it has shown more than anything else is that the country is still split almost 50:50.

The country is split around 52:48 over Brexit - but many in favour of Brexit do not support a "no deal" variation.

The figure against no deal Brexit must be a significant majority.

In practice it's actually two for the time being, because the Opposition figure includes Jared O'Mara (Ind, Sheffield Hallam). Mr O'Mara has mental health issues and has announced his intention to relinquish his seat, but while he remains an MP he is unlikely to take any part in proceedings.

There will be a by-election in Sheffield for which the LibDems will start favourites, and if they do win it we're down to one - but that by-election probably won't take place until November.

The country was split 52-48 over 3 years ago.

There is now a pro-Remain majority.

I see the Boris Bounce is having its effect in Scotland:

Britain Elects

Scottish independence voting intention:

Yes: 52%
No: 48%

Meanwhile , back in the real world, when Scots go in to the ballot box they vote Naw.

Amazing that!

Still maybe after a generation has passed we'll have another vote...........Just as Sturgeon promised!

So when Johnson’s Government inevitably falls on a vote of No Confidence who should be the new PM of the Government of National Unity which will revoke Article 50 (or at least legislate for a confirmatory referendum)?

I think I would prefer Caroline Lucas.

Yes, very representative of the people of cloud cuckoo land so would be a great choice.

No, back in the real world, Johnson will probably win a No Confidence vote .
if he doesn't he gets two weeks to sit on his hnds then he can call a GE for , say, Nov 7th?

It doesn’t work like that. Following a vote of no confidence Commons has 14 days to come up with alternative Govt.

GNU is the way forward to stop No Deal which is wanted by tiny numbers in and out of Parliament.

I have no idea how long Boris will last but I was amused to read a review of the new film Joker in a newspaper recently. The writer praised the film as being an "examination of how someone might end up a psychotic murderous clown" and it occurred to me that if you removed one word (murderous) then the writer could have been reviewing a film about the current Prime Minister!

By the way, I´m in Spain at present, so will have to wait until I get home tomorrow to see if Private Eye magazine has included a joke about the film and Johnson!
