    Lib Dems are doing well in the local elections. Surely the Maybot needs to resign to save the Tories. She has destroyed them.

    Sadly not 'destroyed' with the alternatives also being so uninspiring, but you have to think these elections are going to be a disaster for them.

    Turnout is only 40% lot less in some areas, Brexiteers have no one to vote for so staying at home. Number of spoiled ballots will be an interesting figure.

    it's going to get worse, it will be flat and neutral, no consensus, nothing will move for months

    hence the need for the Queen to take the final decision,

    The Brexit party weren't standing in the local council elections hence Brexiteers had no one to vote for. Remainers could vote for Libdems or Greens which they have done also independent candidates have won a lot of seats. But true Brexiteers arent going to vote Tory or Labour and UKIP is a busted flush who should really dissolve and just vanish so they had no one to vote for so either stayed home or spoiled the ballot paper. Wait till the Euro elections if they take place and see the result then. But word is Doris and Corbyn are close to a deal.

    If the LibDems could offer up a leader with proven balls, an ex-Guardsman VC holder, affluent self - made millionaire who pays his taxes on businesses operated in Britain, who is good looking with a cracking wife, about 50 years old and 6'2'', speaks five languages, can tell a good joke and holidays once a year on the Brecon Beacons with the SAS, who thinks Europe is the future with him leading the pack and thinks we should build more prisons and who wants to increase tax allowance to the first 16,000 earned, they'd clean up.

    As will the number of posts you make on this without mentioning that the big winners are the Lib Dems, who just happen to be pro-remain.

    But no, you're more interested in how many Brexiters can't read the ballot paper.

    Seriously have you got nothing better to do on your day off you thick tedious twat. If you see my reply to seekingass you will clearly see that I pointed out remainers have voted for the libdems and greens. Another pathetic attempt at point scoring failed. Stick to watching Somchai creeping round your house on your cams.

    ???

    Another gem from Mr Sausage... I wonder how the Brexit Party will do in elections where they actually have candidates.

    The local council elections are the least of the Conservative worries yet they still got devastated - not good; May has ruined the Tories for a long time to come unless they out her now and put in a Brexiteer to push through a 'managed deal' exit.
    How do I post these pictures???

    The turn out seems to be about average - never high for local elections.

    Liberals and Greens may trumpet their successes but the real winners seems to be Independents, men and women who in the main do not have large party organisations behind them.

    My prediction is that Corbyn and May will now do whatever is needed to get some sort of (any sort of ) deal through parliament, to stave off Farage's Brexit Party humiliating them at the polls for the EU elections and thus creating a platform from which they could contest a future General Election.

    Local election set backs the two major parties can live with, but Farage upsetting the two party, status quo apple cart, is a prospect they fear indeed.

    You are dreaming if you think a new Tory leader will magic up a better deal.

    Maybot is just the scapegoat ....actually its Boris, Moog, ERG etc who are to blame.

    It's been proven time and time again that sane people just do not see Farage as having any role in Westminster. He has a certain degree of value in Brussels as an irritant to a protest voter, but there is no evidence to suggest that will transfer to a GE.

    May and Corbyn will have spent precisely no time whatsoever worrying about serial reject Nige's chances in a General Election.

    Farage doesn't bother his arse voting in EU parliament, ...he just posts rants on youtube to fool all the poorly educated Brexiteers into believing he's actually doing something.

    You really dont get it do you, people dont vote for anti EU candidates expecting them to go to Brussels to make and vote for new laws.

    ^^ An impressive counter argument, as usual.
