    Anna Soubrey loses her seat so we won't have to suffer her smug face on TV anymore (Unless she retruns to the previous profession).

    Every cloud etc!

    We don’t agree on much politically but on this occasion I am in complete agreement with you.

    Plus the many others to numerous to mention.

    Yes - hopefully Labour will have a complete clear out - including Mrs Cooper (do you remember Mr Balls!). Clear the whole lot out - along with Momentum and the racist thugs they seem to have recently attracted.

    Yvette Cooper will be many Labour Members favourite for becoming leader.

    The election was only advisory. We need a People's Vote

    More likely than free broadband and reimbursing pensions to all ladies of a certain age.

    Farage became a total irrelevance and will hopefully **** off to America for good to play silly games with Trump.

    I mean heaven forbid that the man should actually reside in the country who's independence he has so manfully struggled for and failed to get elected in.

    Apparently, Rebecca Long Bailey is being touted as a potential leader. She of the independent eyebrows. She’s not a moderate and it depends which direction the party chooses to go in. Certainly she was put up in many interviews this time.

    Or as the media labelled her - Rebecca Wrong Daily!

    Scaremongering. I can't imagine the UK adopting some sort of National Insurance system.

    I couldn't imagine them voting for a racist sexist homophobic pathologically lying fridge-dweller, but life is full of surprises.

    Still, at least I got to hear Richard Osman call Johnson a c*** on live TV tonight.

    The thing is...we already do and have done for decades...it's called national insurance for a reason.

    Wait and see, that's all. After all, everyone is being urged to take out a private pension, and firms over a certain size have to provide the people's pension - despite us all paying NI which is supposed to be our pension payment contribution anyway. We will end up with only the very basic medical care being free, and having to rely on our ability to pay for health insurance to get anything more. Operations are already being rationed or not offered in some areas now.

    Many people have a public sector pension despite us all paying NI which is supposed to be our pension payment contribution anyway.

    Can we seriously continue funding the NHS the same way? It was set up 70+ years ago and the funding system was right for the time. Times have changed, notably the demographics of the UK; we have an older population needing the NHS more, but contributing less. Yes, more money is needed, but the way the NHS is funded needs to be looked at.
