    Just over an hour before the polls closed on Thursday, I took a call from a member of the Shadow Cabinet.  ‘There’s a strong possibility Jeremy’s going to resign tonight,’ they said. ‘He’s not going to Labour HQ from his count. They’re going to try to keep him away from people, and see if they can get him to change his mind.’ There was no need to keep him away from people. The people were coming to him – in numbers not seen for a Labour leader since the 2001 Blair landslide.

    A grand total of 84.2% of General Election voters stumped for a party that has promised to take Britain out of the European Union. It’s proof, if proof were needed, that an overwhelming majority of people just want us to get on with Brexit.

    As voters head to the polls, many have predicted a Conservative party landslide, but when it comes to contests of meaning over the last couple of years, popular opinion has not always gone the way of the Globalists. The results won’t be in until gone midnight UK time, but here are some predictions that the MSM will be unlikely to offer. The Conservatives won’t hit the huge majority that was predicted a month ago. When the election period began, most pollsters had the Tory Party on a 24 point lead and heading for a 100 seat majority. And although the...
  • Theresa May election meltdown? Pollsters predict Tories to LOSE House of Commons majority

    The calamitous news for Theresa May comes from the first seat by seat projection for the campaign, and suggests the Conservatives will fall 16 seats short of an overall majority. The polling method has taken into account an unusual technique using a complex computer model. The YouGov prediction would leave Theresa May with 310 MPs – 20 fewer than at the time of dissolution of the last Parliament – while Labour are set to surge from 229 to 257 MPs on June 8 election, a gain of 28 seats in the Commons. The shocking scenario could leave Theresa May’s hand...

In a poll by YouGov for the Times newspaper, 45% of respondents said Britain was wrong to vote to leave the EU. 43% said Britain was right to leave, while 12% answered ‘don’t know’.

    IWB ^ | Mark Angelides
    Microsoft magnate Bill Gates has said that the UK needs to stick to its Foreign Aid budget and nor scale it back. This coincides exactly with Prime Minister May refusing to rule out such cuts after the June 8th General Election. Is it a coincidence that both the Labour Party (opposition) Leader, Jeremy Corbyn and gates launch the same demands on the same day, at the same time? Or is Gates trying to exert influence against the governments electoral chances, and ultimately against Brexit. At present, Britain has a commitment to spend 0.7% of GDP on the Foreign Aid budget,...

    Today Britain goes to the polls to vote in the European elections. Nigel Farage has had a rough ride, to the point where a casual observer might easily assume the election was being fought between Farage's UKIP and a Tory-Labour-Liberal-Media coalition. That's apparently not the case. There are four main choices for voters, notwithstanding the media's wish to make it a referendum on Farage's "racism". According to some of the public polling, that may have done some last-minute damage. According to the internal polling, maybe not: Labour and Conservative polling is showing that attacks claiming Nigel Farage is a racist...

    National Review ^ | 09/15/2015 | Charles C.W. Cooke
    Last Friday, the British Labour Party introduced an “assisted dying” bill into parliament. The following day, in an attempt to demonstrate that they stood squarely behind the measure, the party’s members elected Jeremy Corbyn as their new leader. Since 1974, Labour has won only three elections — all of them under the moderate stewardship of Tony Blair. By selecting a rabble-rousing socialist to lead it into the future, the British Left has sent a clear message to the public at large. That message? That it is happy to lose in perpetuity if it can moan and emote along the way....

    adical leftwinger Jeremy Corbyn on Saturday won the crown of Britain's main opposition Labour party in a landslide victory, becoming the nation's most left-wing political leader for over 30 years. The 66-year-old socialist, whose policies have been compared to those of Greece's Syriza and Spain's Podemos, was named leader after clinching 59.5 percent of the 422,664 votes cast by Labour party members and supporters. The newly-elected leader condemned "grotesque levels of inequality" and "an unfair welfare system" in his victory speech to party members in central London. The veteran campaigner also called for Britain's Conservative government to show more "compassion"...

    If you're like me and think that sometimes, politics is a spectator sport - especially when the outcome doesn't affect you - then you are going to love what's happening with the Labor Party in Great Britain. The venerable political organization is about to elect as leader a man who has called Hamas and Hezb'allah "friends," whose radical economic ideas are scaring the wits out of the financial industry, and whose bombastic and aggressive style turns off most voters. In short, Labor is about to commit political suicide by electing Jeremy Corbyn as its leader and is tearing itself...

    President Obama's campaign mastermind suffered a humiliating end to his political career today as the British Labour party he was paid almost $500,000 to help to victory plunged to a catastrophic defeat. David Axelrod had been touted as the man to get Labour's Ed Miliband into - and the Conservative prime minister David Cameron out of - Downing Street. Instead he slunk out of Britain early, as his former Obama campaign colleague Jim Messina, who advised the winning Conservatives, crowed over a victory which had 'stunned the world'. Axelrod had already vowed that he was 'done with campaigns' after complaining...

    The Conservatives have emerged as the dominant force in English politics after a string of surprising wins in key constituencies. Significant gains in the marginal "killing fields" helped the party to a comfortable majority. In a night of upheaval, seats previously considered Labour and Lib Dem strongholds turned blue as results trickled in. Several high-profile names including Ed Balls and Vince Cable lost their seats. Failure to win key marginals, combined with Labour losses in Scotland, prompted Ed Miliband to stand down. Meanwhile, Nick Clegg resigned as Liberal Democrat leader after his party suffered heavy losses and UKIP leader Nigel...

    At 9:21 a.m. Eastern Time on Friday in America, former top Obama aide David Axelrod conceded the UK election. “Congratulations to my friend @Messina2012 on his role in the resounding Conservative victory in Britain,” Axelrod wrote on Twitter. The surprisingly decisive victory for Prime Minister David Cameron and his Tories also delivered a big win to Jim Messina, President Barack Obama’s 2012 campaign manager, who advised the Conservative Party and triumphed over his fellow Obama aide, Axelrod, who advised the Labour Party.

Asked in an interview with Politico Europe whether he knew what he was getting into when he signed up to advise the British Labour leader, Axelrod replied: “We discussed this when I signed on … I’ve worked in aggressive media environments before...

Many voters all over Europe are making their choices today, in the UK the voting was on Thursday. Polling shows the United Kingdom Independence Party at about 30 percent popular support in spite of an intense campaign to discredit it by the major parties and the media. Everything from the race card to the employment of UKIP leader Nigel Farage's wife as his secretary has been thrown on the wall in hopes of something sticking. The immigration police just happened to...

    Nigel Farage tonight claimed victory in the European elections, becoming the first 'insurgent party' to top a national vote. With results still being declared, Mr Farage broke cover to predict he will humiliate the Westminster parties, pushing Labour and the Tories into second and third. Support for Ukip has surged by more than 12 per cent, outstripping a more modest boost in votes for Labour, while the Lib Dems faced near-wipeout, with some calling for Nick Clegg to resign. Mr Farage said: 'Ukip is going to win this election and yes that will be an earthquake because never before in...
