The Brexit election explained: where do we go from here?

    He insisted the focus would be on the NHS.
    But his landslide victory puts Brexit right back on the immediate agenda - the Withdrawal Bill likely to go before MPs next week.
    And it will put Scottish independence front and centre too - thanks to a resurgent SNP.
    As for Labour - with their worst result since the thirties, the political recriminations begin - and the search for a new leader.

    the Labour disconnect from their natural supporters started under Blair and has culminated with the party's disregard of the referendum result. If the referendum had been broken down by constituency results there were over 400 in favour of Leave and about 200 for Remain. Most Labour voters and many others thought that the renationalisation of water, power and trains was a good idea. But hey New Labour was always after constituencies such as Putney.....they got what they deserved.

    Brext and all the Prime minister wants is to get out of europe instead of getting to the bottom of the national newspapers bullying another Royal prince and princess. Are you going to continue ignoring the real facts the nation wants sorting Mr Johnson?

    Oh no! Does this mean I won't get my free Broadband or be compensated for losing out on my Government pension? Never mind, I'll get by with the knowledge that Corbyn and his commie cronies have been well and truly shafted and hopefully destined to the political wilderness, never to be allowed to run this country again, the Labour party is DEAD and good riddance, let's give Boris a chance, we need to be reassured our country is now on the right track to be free from the EU and get our country back.

    I wouldn’t ask Ed Miliband for his advice on double glazing never mind what went wrong with Labour and the failed election. This fiasco only cements Boris Johnson well and truly for at least the next 10 years in 10 Downing Street.

    Prince Andrew is not an elected official nor a member of parliament. He is a flawed Royal who needs dressing down by his mother not stripped of his birth right. The haters come out of the wood work when ever they sniff a fart. Get back into your box. The man has been humiliated enough is enought

    How many commentators suggested that with his large majority Boris would introduce a softer approach to the EU.
    And what did he do ? Introduced a law to make sure there are no more extensions. Up yours EU.

    CH4 the biased News service is just as much a loser as the Labour party. Krishnan, Gary Gibbon and Matt Frye and that fool Jon Snow have been biased against BREXIT for the last 3 years. Now they are trying to have a sensible dialogue, GET LOST, I hate CH4 for their last 3 years. Maybe CH4 now realised they do not represent the wishes of the UK public.
    All news services, ALL should be unbiased! The people of the UK need a balanced News service, not a biased organisation telling them what to think. I have been disgusted with CH4 over the last 3 years.

    In my opinion there are two reasons labour lost so hard.
    1. Media hates progressives like Corbyn and constantly smear him as an anti-Semite.
    2. Labour failed to accept the results of the referendum.

    Where do the citizens of Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique go from here under the very poor management of the present administration of the NNP with Dr Keith C Mitchell in charge and Squandering taxpayers contributions, year in year out and with only one of the 14 MPs dare to tell him WE ARE GOING THE WRONG WAY in recent weeks. We need some international intervention of our respectable financial donors, especially with our electoral process and to oversee how our taxes and donations are spent. If we leave this administration in control for another twelve months, the citizenry will become stateless with all Dr Mitchell’s foreign friends owning all of our heritage, especially those flyby night citizens holding CBI passport. An international call for the Doctor to account of his government spending over the years of his STEWARDSHIP by the electors but especially by friendly foreign donors. This action is very necessary now and not later.....The likely charge is ......SQUANDAMANIA

    The SNP needs to call for an election if their position is as strong as they profess it to be . If they win THEN Boris would certainly be in a pickle. But they won't take that chance because they know they would lose. Scotland has not enough trade with the EU to even get in the EU as a "dependent" state . funny that is never talked about

    Corbyn should have learned the lesson from William Jay. William Jay died maintaining his right of way. He was right dead right as he sped along, but is now just as dead as if he were wrong. The people just didn't believe his bullshit policies were economically viable. So they voted the labour party out.

  • Stephan_Toth _Satisfaction_UK

    Boris Johnson and the Conservative party has saved our country from a Corbynist Communist takeover. Corbyns Marxist friends should realise that there is no way that this country would back them against democracy.

    When you have a woman saying that the problem with Britain is white men, that on balance Chairman Mao did more good than harm (both Abbott), a fantasy wish list of free stuff as a manifesto, a palpable feeling of anti-GB sentiment, a desertion of the working class, rife anti-semitism, misandry, and identity politics, and a leader who appears to despise the armed forces and Police who protect us.... is it any wonder they lost?!
    The rise of populism and nationalism is due solely (in my opinion) to the obsession they have with divisive identity politics. The left have left me and many others. It is truly lamentable.

    The UK, after all, pays to EU just 161 million pounds a week but not 350 million a week as Nigel Farage and Boris Johnson displayed on the "Leave campaign" busses. Why Nigel Farage and Boris Johnson misled British people about "350 million pounds a week expenditure"? Every week the UK Treasury gets 88 million pounds back from the EU and 50 million of it gets farming and fisheries. Basically, the British people were fooled or misled about all "Brexit agenda and the EU itself in the first place. All these "tough debates, talkings, and arguments" about Brexit should have been happening beforehand. Now obviously British people know much much more about Brexit risks and the consequences of it. Back then they weren't. The second referendum would be a fair solution for Britain.

    If I was Boris I would place an immediate moratorium on all fishing in UK waters. Keep all commercial fishing out for three years to allow healthy restocking of depleted (but resurgent) North Sea Cod; at the end of the three years allow closely managed fishing under commercial licences issued only to UK owned and operated fishing enterprises.
