Silver lining we get to see David Dimbleby deliver his election night masterclass one final time.
After staying up for Brexit and the US election, and with how this will surely pan out, I’m not convinced it is compensation enough for a vote that nobody but a coterie of in-power Tories really wants. OK, and the Lib Dems and SNP, and Corbyn has to pretend like it’s a good thing for him. Also, has Dimbleby said it’s his last election night? I know he’s in his 70’s (and looking good on it), but didn’t know that - not questioning it, just curious.
In response to suggestions of a Lab/Lib pact - that is even less likely than when they had the option to side with Brown and go into government. The libs are on their arse and will possibly become the second biggest party and de facto opposition, whereas siding with Corbyn will sink them with the moderate, wavering voter as much as the 2010 coalition did. They have one chance at resurrection, and to saddle themselves alongside what many view (whatever you personally think of him or Labour) the political Kryptonite that is Corbyn just will not happen. They can only play the long game here, and recoup some of their losses and credibility.
TL;DR the Tories by a landslide for (many) reasons. I hope this is one of those posts that people re-quote down the line asking what they were thinking, but consider this very unlikely.
