The UK election is over. Those expecting a hung parliament that found out otherwise in a record 5 seconds.

The exit polls were not only astonishing, they were astonishingly accurate. The exit poll Tory estimate was 368.

My "Fearless Forecast" was Tories 345, Labour 226, and Lib Dems 17.

Apologies offered for not being optimistic enough.

Flashback November 18: Fear of Corbyn Outweighs Fear of Brexit

My Comment: "This election is no longer primarily about Brexit, it's primarily about Corbyn."

Why is it shocking news that people, when they finally got into the voting booth, voted against someone they could not stand?

Second Reason

On the latter, he is of course correct. He just forgot to look in the mirror while making that statement.

Corbyn Already Sounds Like Hillary

Corbyn is whining as loudly as Hillary Clinton.

He just forgot one thing. He forgot to blame Russia.

He will have plenty of time to reflect on things, then blame Russia.
