So the most likely government at this point is... Theresa May and the ghost of Ian Paisley?
In a way everyone lost (although Labour can claim a moral victory and a technical loss)
The PM's refusal to consider resigning shows that she really only has one card in her deck - stubbornness! She seems to think good leaders refuse to change their minds (and if they do refuse to acknowledge the change). IMHO good leaders listen and make informed choices, admitting they are wrong if necessary?
@agile_geek I think she has changed her mind to often... brexit, snap election, dementia tax, you name it. that is not leadership in my book
She's been forced to change her mind but doesn't acknowledge it. Changing your mind after a convincing argument is good, doing it because someone holds a gun to your head...?
even worse - obviously changing your mind while denying that anything ever changed ever
What's next? My guess...she'll stay and the DUP gets to have their fun (someone save us!) but who knows?
obvs it will be a labour alliance with small-c tory bbs for a soft brexit and and end to neolib austerity insanity!
Interesting that if we had PR across all UK the Green party would have more seats than DUP!
I am disappointed that Winchester remained Con. (and Romsey and Eastleigh) (where I used to live)
@glenjamin ah, but they lost share because Green Party policy was to work on a liberal alliance so sacrificed there own chances in favour of other parties in a lot of constituencies
Most of the the mainland knows pretty much nothing about the DUP, or NI politics in general
It always amazed me that UK governments in 70s,80s and 90s called out Sinn Fein for supporting terrorists but never really mentioned the DUP doing exactly the same.
I’m idealistic now - but I don’t believe that that is incompatible with realism.
So another western government may be held hostage by misogynistic, climate change denying party, obstructionist party.
40 years of Tory party squabbling about EU and it comes down to....Tory party squabbling about EU....everything changes and nothing changes
someone should tell those tories that staying together for the sake of the kids only makes the kids require a lot of therapy
and yet boy Dave things that holding the referendum was a good thing... cognitive dissonance
Paul Nuttall resigns from UKIP leadership....well he was going to struggle to lead a party whose membership could probably fit in one pub
My favourite manifesto was Lord Buckethead's - https://twitter.com/scottbix/status/873014998179745794 - just the right mix of ironic comedy and some really good progressive policies!
interesting - http://thesun.co.uk appear to have a map of a completely different election result on its homepage
ah, i think i may have been underestimating the amount of distortion the population scaling makes to the graun's map when i compared to thesuns's
First a hung parliament, then the DUP and then failing regexs. I need the weekend to come fast! 🙂
@thomas I’m pretty cheery, slides done for Kafka/Onyx/KafkaStreams talk tomorrow. It’s my ClojureX proposal talk run through, see what the reception is like.
@jasonbell oohhhh.... that sounds exciting.. good luck with that.... and I want to see the result sometime
Glad to know that the UK and the USA have something in common around their popular vote issue 😐
of course with more proportional representation there would be more UKIP seats won - they might be the biggest anomaly in that data
yeah, but PR would change voting patterns so difficult to tell. I like the votetillyouboak systems 🙂
well, i'm not the biggest core.async fan, but it did just sort my problems out nicely
