Russia, misinformation, fake news, & isms.

For real though, those polls are so shocking that I just would rather read the news tomorrow.

This night is for my nan, who died earlier this year before her vote to leave was enacted, thinking (as I did) that it was going to be overturned, her death and those of other voters like her cheered on by the more unpleasant parts of the remain campaign.

I wish she was alive to see that the games the remain side have played since 2016 have all been for nought and we will now leave. She helped to correct what she viewed as her generation's mistake to join (or more accurately, to remain; MPs took us in without a vote in the first place) in 2016. This is for you nan x

The end of the union as you know it, and the UK as a relevant country. Long winter ahead. But eh, i'm no longer there anyway.




It's amazing that we could all be witnessing the dissolution of the UK before our very eyes. So much for the U in UK.

This is what the country chose.

Turns out that the UK isn't one great big middle-class Socialist University campus. Labour have been pandering to a crazed, privileged minority and it has come back to bite them.

Well when the guy in charge is called "Boris" I think blaming Russia is fair...



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Johnson won't want to be responsible for having that happen on his watch, no matter how many Brexiteers are happy to cut Scotland and/or Northern Ireland loose to facilitate Brexit - odds are he'll cook up some deal that'll leave moderate Brexiteers saying "okay, that's close enough to what I voted for" and moderate Remainers saying "okay, that's close enough to what we have now", and just about hold off the threat of Scottish secession.

Which, ironically, is what Corbyn actually wanted to do all along, but he went about it in the most asinine, bass-ackwards way possible, in addition to just generally doing a terrible job as party leader.



I was surprised by the results at first, but then I read that the UK uses the winner-takes-all system. The election map looks like a strong concentration of Labour wins in cities, but the big cities account for fewer districts than rural areas. The majority of Scotland went to the Scottish party.

Does any place show the stats in the form of a popular vote for the UK as a whole?



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

This might help you:

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/ng-interactive/2019/dec/12/uk-general-election-2019-full-results-live-labour-conservatives-tories

You can click on every constituency to see the detailed results for each of them. Below you can see the result of the popular vote.

Also, poor LibDems. Gained 4% in votes but lost half of their seats.

Turnout looked high at first, with long queues, but in the end it were only 67% of the voters who actually used their right to vote.



People voted to get Brexit done after years of argueing, they don't think about the idea of a Tory government for the next 4 years. They don't like Corbin so voted Tory in Labour areas when it's not who will be leading the country but representing them.

Whatever.
