The right wing Tory press have seemingly exhausted their attacks on Corbyn now. What else can they attack him on that will effect public perception of him?

Something involving a billy goat and a cucumber no doubt. Since when did something have to be true for that lot or their brain-dead, fuckwit readers?

I have it on extremely good authority that Red accepted a copy of the Sun today and, prepare yourselves, actually read it of his own accord!

Red - what say you to these accusations?

Hard to see the gay Scottish tory leader being comfortable about working with DUP.

Mays choice for propping up her government could easily backfire

I really think that if the Conservatives and DUP form a coalition, they will certainly lose comfortably next time. Their working class wing of supporters aren't going to be keen on the ultra-conservative ideals of the DUP. You can't pretend to be a cool, progressive, sensible party when you're teaming up with the most backwards party in Britain.

Theresa May called an election she didn't need out of sheer avarice for more seats, put herself front and centre of the campaign, and it ended up in a hung parliament.

I know you all know but I feel like if I don't keep saying it, it might stop being true.

Dunno about that mate. She's not adverse to pipe bands, marches of the orange persuasion and all that jazz.

I just can't fathom why so many felt the tories would be some unstoppable force post referendum. It was like some nightmarish self fulfilling prophecy with people just repeating nonsense. There was nothing substantive to indicate the Labour were in for a bad night, nothing. Those predicting a demise were reliant on things that just weren't real and mistook wrong theories/opinions as fact. I said at the time don't pay attention to the polls and it's proven to be the case. The whole Corbyn is unelectable thing was an establishment fabrication.

As the dust settles I'm getting more pissed with that twunt Farron. May is rightfully getting pelters but don't overlook how shit that baby walker has been. The LD tactics post brexit have been horrific and worsened once the election was called. He's not far behind May in terms of disastrous campaign rankings. His crapness contributed to the tories having this DUP sellotaped minority thing.

All the little parties need to have a serious discussion before the next election as currently their presence is only strengthening the tories in some places. Plaid denied Labour winning Tory seats in Wales last night for example. Other seats would've fallen to the 'progressives' had they not taken votes off one another.

Her partner is an irish Catholic so I doubt she shares their sectarian views

If we look objectively at the DUP's position as minority partners, we can assume they'll demand an almost open border with the Republic which I think we all want to see remain - may not have been a given under a Tory majority.

I can't think of anything else positive about out incoming government at the moment.

That the Tories will be virtually unelectable come the next election? Good time to be in opposition. This is gonna be a fucking mess.
