Corbyn got ripped a new one good and proper.
I'm sure Neil will do the same to Boris but he really did do a number on Corbyn who literally had no answer to his questions. And he didn't even need to discuss Corporation tax - the biggest hole in the Labour grey book by far.
Just finished watching now, and Corbyn was shredded by Andrew Neil. Personally thought Nicola Sturgeon dealt with him much better, despite not coming across well.

Boris will suffer the same fate?
Will he?
If he's got any sense he will keep running away from Andrew!
All Boris has to do is stay out of trouble and let the Labour bat shit crazy policies speak for themselves.
Actually the most worrying element of Labours policy is their Bexit policy when you follow it through as it will be very very divisive for the country.
Not the policy of planting 12,000 trees every hour 24 hours a day for 7300 days until they get to 2 billion? A policy which requires land space roughly the size of Wales to fit them on.

hmm, now you say it, if they could actually plant them all in Wales, to cover it up completely then I'm in....

Plus there's about a million homes to fit in, then all the new people after Labour open the borders completely to the world, it's going to get crowded.

Saw something like this on Twitter:

Early indications are that Labour are way ahead at the moment but that will all change when the conservative voters finish work and go to vote.

Exit polls have been wrong but looks like Jez has been shafted.

Edit: someone edited my post.

This is that nastiest election I've ever seen and the lies were just too numerous to list.

On the plus side Diane "two odd left shoes" Abbott will not be in charge of our security.

Just proves most normal people dont want a loony left in charge. Never will until the 70s are only in the history books.
The only labour leader to win an election in over 40 years was in the centre left and wasn't out to destroy capitalism.
Assuming the Tories plod along over the next 5 years and nothing drastic changes then a sensible, popular, centralist run labour party will get close. In 2024 with no Corbyn and Brexit more or less a done job then it will be a fair fight.

I think this election result underscores the fact that when the Great British Public vote for something (Brexit) they expect their wishes to be respected. My great hope is that Boris Johnson can deliver a better life for everyone and still have a great relationship with EU and that remainers can finally accept democracy and get on board.

Yeah, when I was a kid most of the nastiness came from the right. That's hardly the case now. Corbynites were vile at times. That rally the night before the election where they made clear their views on any Jewish support they might have had left showed them for what they are.

Then you get social media where z-list celebs are saying anyone who voted Conservative must be stupid. I live in a neighbourhood where most people vote Conservative and most, if not all, are well educated (better educated than most comedians, that's for sure).

This was probably the first election (certainly the first that I've seen) where a number of predominantly working-class northern towns and cities voted Conservative. And of course now they're "stupid" too. Were they stupid when they kept voting Labour despite those constituencies still being poor after decades of local Labour leadership? Apparently not ;)

Anyway, I'm glad Labour got thrashed and even more pleased to get rid of Corbyn once and for all. The crying the next day was something to behold :)

As for Diane Abbott, yeah, her views on what constitutes a terrorist group showed one of two things:

1) She's actually clueless about terrorism
2) She understands full well what some of these groups are like, but refuses to condemn them anyway. Perfect for a Corbyn govt., but not for anyone who has the UK's best interests at heart.

Both are bad. Both make her unsuitable for government.
