Crooks defeat other crooks in UK election as one-citizen-in-five votes Labour

TEPID SUPPORT FOR RED GLOBALISTS, SUB ZERO SUPPORT FOR BLUE GLOBALISTS, Cold Shoulder from FED-UP ELECTORATE

Intro by Steve Cook

Here’s a brief summary of what happened in the UK elections courtesy of excerpts from the NY Times. Pleae forgive the ususal MSM slant on things.

My own observations at this early stage are:

The British people registered a damning indictment of the sleaze, corruption and nation-wrecking antics of the Tories, a party clearly thoroughly subverted by their globalist/financier overlords.

It is a shame they had to register their displeasure by voting for Labour, another similarly subverted party operating as a front for that same globalist/financier crime syndicate but one can understand the somewhat forlorn hope that surely, God help us, the Labour crooks could not be worse than the Tory crooks. Don’t hold your breath on that one.

The message is clear: if you cheese people off by attacking and ruining their country, you’ll get a walloping. This is a lesson Labour would do well to heed because the same fate awaits them a few short years hence if they do not behave themselves. The British people are not after all in love with Labour.

All it will take now is a few more years of globalist nation-wrecking under the banner of Labour for millions more people to twig that  we are being conned, what they say (any idiot can fib) and what they actually do (by their deeds shall ye know them) are two different things and both our parties  – and probably most of the others – are compromised and can be guaranteed to wreck the country. We are heading for a revolt once it becomes broadly recognised that the system is rigged, the deck stacked so as to disempower the plebs, riffraf and hoi poloi.

Labour will quickly lose the “support” of milions of voters who voted for them not out of love or conviction but out of a desire to get rid of the corrupt Tories, if they engage in yet more of the same old shenanigans designed to demoralise, impoverish and enslave the People.

Despite the landslide, despite the widespread hatred of the globalist Tories, Labour’s support is not as numerous as the number of seats they won suggests, such is the way the British system is set up.

For example, the Greens won 4 seats with 7%  of the vote and the new party, Reform, also won 4 seats but with 15% of the vote (twice as many!)

Labour got into power with just 35% of the vote (and “the lowest share of the vote won by any single party majority government,” according to the polling expert Prof. John Curtice).

Less than ten million people voted for labour out of an electorate of about 46.5 million, which  gives Labour the support of about one citizen in five.

And of that one-person-in-five we have the imponderable of how many people really have a deep belief and conviction that Labour is more than another bunch of crooks – or even knows what their manifesto is, except that it isn’t Tory? The vote reflects more of a hatred of the Tories than a love of Labour, which millions are quietly praying will not turn out to be as bad as or worse than the other bunch of crooks.

It is notable too that both Tory and Labour combined got the support of less than one citizen in three!

This hardly amounts to amandate from the People for Labour but Labour will act as if it does, proceed to do lots of things it never mentioned in its manifesto, neglect to deliver on what it did promise and so forth in the time-honoured manner of democracies that have been hijacked by criminals.

But that fragile support of one person in five will quickly evaporate once the usual death-by-taxation, death-by-Net-Zero, death-by-erosion-of-liberty and all the other globalist death-cult shenanigans start to really hurt (around about next Thursday is my guess).

Of course, We The People can change all this. Nothing is set in stone but it would be a good idea if we could accelerate the “waking up” that is spreading at the grass roots and rescue our communities before we have no option but revolt and the guillotine.

PS. Another thig worth mentioning as tat the globalist front group known as the Scottish Nationalist  Party lost 37 seats!

 

Live Updates: Labour Party Wins U.K. Election in a Landslide

Keir Starmer will be Britain’s next prime minister, ending 14 years of Conservative government. A fragmented vote saw the Conservatives crash to the worst result in their long history.

Britain’s Labour Party won a landslide election victory Friday morning, sweeping the Conservative Party out of power after 14 years in an anti-incumbent revolt that heralded a new era in British politics.

The outgoing prime minister, Rishi Sunak, conceded his party’s national defeat, shortly before the Labour Party’s parliamentary majority was confirmed, saying: “The British people have delivered a sobering verdict tonight.”

He said that he had called Keir Starmer, the Labour leader and incoming prime minister to congratulate him. Mr. Sunak, who held on to his parliamentary seat, said he would travel to London to deliver his formal resignation to King Charles III and apologized for his party’s performance.

Mr. Starmer, appearing before a crowd of supporters in London, promised to “rebuild our country,” adding: “Change begins now.”

With a handful of districts left to declare, Labour had won more than 400 seats and the Conservatives were on course for no more than 130. That would be the worst defeat for the Conservatives in the nearly 200-year history of the party.

But it was also an exceptionally fragmented result, with gains not only for Reform U.K., an anti-immigrant party, but for the Green Party and for pro-Palestinian independent candidates in formerly safe Labour seats. The BBC forecast Labour’s nationwide share of the vote at only 35 percent. That would be the “the lowest share of the vote won by any single party majority government,” according to Prof. John Curtice, a polling expert.

Here’s what else to know:

  • Labour’s makeover: For Mr. Starmer, a low-key lawyer who only entered Parliament in 2015, it was a remarkable vindication of his four-year project to pull the Labour Party away from the left-wing policies of his predecessor, Jeremy Corbyn, and rebrand it as a plausible alternative to the increasingly erratic rule of the Conservatives.

  • Right-wing ferment: Reform U.K.’s strong showing was a victory for Nigel Farage, the party’s leader and a veteran political disrupter who won a seat after failing in seven previous bids to get into Parliament. From his new perch, Mr. Farage could try to poach the remnants of the debilitated Conservatives.

  • Unhappy electorate: Voters expressed frustration with the torpid economy, a major increase in immigration following Britain’s departure from the European Union and an overburdened National Health Service, which resulted in long waiting times for patients.

Reform U.K., the upstart party led by Nigel Farage, won four seats. It’s clear they won’t get the 13 seats that the exit poll projected. But they managed to grab 15 percent of the overall vote, a healthy showing and a sign of the fractured nature of the electorate.

It was also a good night for the Green Party. They now have four seats in Parliament. Adrian Ramsay, the co-leader of the party, said that “we will be pushing the government to be bolder.” The party tends to be popular among young voters. While they won few seats, the garnered close to 7 percent of the vote. The Greens success is also part of a trend away from the two major parties.

Liz Truss, the former Conservative Party prime minister, lost her seat Friday morning. Following a chaotic 49-day premiership in 2022, which sent mortgage rates soaring, the pound tumbling and required an intervention by the central bank to calm markets, she has been ousted from Parliament.

Five years ago, she won a majority of more than 26,000. This time, she lost by 630 votes, a huge swing in support to the Labour Party.

She told the BBC that the reason the Conservatives lost was because “we haven’t delivered sufficiently on the policies people want,” such as keeping taxes low and reducing immigration. She said she agreed that she was part of the group in power that had failed to deliver these changes but laid the blame on the inheritance the party received in 2010, not herself.

“During our 14 years in power, unfortunately, we did not do enough to take on the legacy we’d been left,” she said.

But Ms. Truss is just one of many prominent Conservative lawmakers to lose their seats, including recent members of the cabinet. Others include:

  • Grant Shapps, the defense secretary, who over the Conservatives’ 14 years in power has also served as energy secretary, business secretary, home secretary and transport secretary.

  • Penny Mordaunt, the leader of the House of Commons, who has unsuccessfully run to lead the party.

  • Jacob Rees-Mogg, a prominent backer of Boris Johnson who served as business secretary under Ms. Truss.

  • Robert Buckland, a former justice secretary, who described the election results as “electoral Armageddon” for the Conservatives.

  • Gillian Keegan, the education secretary.

  • Lucy Frazer, the culture secretary.

  • Michelle Donelan, who held cabinet positions under Mr. Johnson, Ms. Truss and Rishi Sunak, most recently as a minister for science, innovation and technology.

    The traditional strongholds the Conservative Party lost also included the seats once held by three other former prime ministers, Mr. Johnson, David Cameron and Theresa May.

The election results are clear. Now comes the choreography of the change in government. Prime Minister Rishi Sunak will address the nation around 10:30 a.m., before heading to Buckingham Palace to offer his formal resignation to King Charles III. Keir Starmer, the Labour leader, will then have an audience with the king, before traveling back to N0. 10 Downing Street as the new prime minister. Starmer will speak at about 12:20 p.m.

“We are seeing the working class get poorer and poorer and the rich get richer. I needed to do something that I could fully stand by, and hopefully it will make some difference as well.”

Liz Truss has lost her seat. The ousting of the former prime minister, who was in office for just 49 days in late 2022, is another sign of the scale of the Conservative Party’s defeat. Her plans for unfunded tax cuts and more borrowing roiled markets. The chaos ultimately forced her resignation and many in her party blamed her for ruining the party’s reputation for good financial stewardship.

While the Labour Party is walking away with a strong majority of seats in Parliament, the overall share of votes its candidates captured, 35 percent according to BBC projections, signals a fractured electorate. It’s the “the lowest share of the vote won by any single party majority government,” according to the polling expert Prof. John Curtice.

The Conservatives’ reversal of fortune is apparent in the “red wall,” a set of coal and factory towns in the Midlands and north of England that long voted for the Labour Party but swung dramatically to the Conservatives in 2019.

Initial results indicate that many of these voters flocked back to Labour, whose party color is red, in this election. Labour was also helped by a strong performance for Reform U.K., the upstart right wing-party that cut into the Conservatives’ vote share and retained one seat in a Midlands former mining area.

In Bolsover, the Labour candidate, Natalie Fleet, defeated the Conservative incumbent who had swept into office in 2019, Mark Fletcher, winning just over 40 percent of the vote.

Ms. Fleet, 40, is a working-class product of the Midlands. A onetime single mother who had a child at 16, she ran for a seat in the neighboring district of Ashfield in 2019, falling victim to the Conservative rout. This time, Ms. Fleet said in brief comments to The New York Times before the election, the mood among voters was so much better that her youngest child, who is 10, joined her in knocking on doors.

When a Times journalist visited the area weeks before the election, it was clear that residents had yet to adjust to the changes wrought by immigration. In Shirebrook, a onetime mining town that is one of Bolsover’s poorer precincts, a sporting-goods company hired hundreds of workers from Eastern Europe to staff a large warehouse more than a decade ago, and memories of that linger.

“The Conservatives have policies that we agree with,” Alison Owen said, citing immigration. But Ms. Owen, 52, a restaurant supervisor who was playing bingo at a social club that serves former miners, said, “We’re Labour, through and through.”
