Tory disaster in the UK

Theresa May's electoral gamble turned out to be as stupid and disastrous as her feeble response to the Muslim attacks in Manchester and London.
A shaky Theresa May vowed to fight on today despite suffering catastrophic losses as her election gamble humiliatingly backfired - leaving a hung parliament just 10 days before Brexit talks are due to start.

As the Tories' Commons majority was brutally stripped away by voters, Mrs May faced open calls from her own MPs to 'consider her position' as a jubilant Jeremy Corbyn demanded she make way for him to become PM.

But an ashen-faced Mrs May, who called the contest three years early in a bid to capitalise on sky-high poll ratings, insisted the Conservatives were still the largest party with an expected 319 seats. She insisted the country needed a 'period of stability', adding: 'It is incumbent on us to ensure that we have that.'

As the knives came out for Mrs May, former chancellor George Osborne lambasted her campaign performance as 'wooden' and her manifesto as a disaster, making clear he did not believe she could survive for long. Former minister Anna Soubry, who was reelected in Broxtowe, added her voice to calls for Mrs May to consider resigning. Asked exactly where the Tory campaign had gone wrong, Ms Soubry said bluntly: 'Where do you want me to start?' Another Tory MP, Nigel Evans, said the party had 'shot ourselves in the head'.

With English and Welsh voters seemingly punishing Mrs May for calling the ballot unnecessarily, the only thing saving her from utter disaster was the Tory performance in Scotland. The party's leader north of the border, Ruth Davidson, inspired a 12-seat surge that unseated the SNP's former First Minister Alex Salmond in Gordon and Westminster leader Angus Robertson in Moray.
May has to resign. She's less viable as a national leader than David Cameron after Brexit. The reason for the Conservative Party collapse is obvious: UKIP's growth was, in part, the result of Labour voters voting for Brexit. That accomplished, they had no reason to vote for the Tories once May revealed herself to be a feckless multiculturalists who was too thick to run on a pro-Brexit, anti-immigration line.

Her response to the two Muslim attacks sealed the loss of her Parliamentary majority. Everyone knew that she wasn't going to do a damn thing about it. Furthermore, the press had painted Jeremy Corbyn as such a no-hoper that people felt safe voting for Labour as a protest vote.

I'm not at all worried about Brexit. If the political class attempts to spin the lack of support for an anti-Brexit prime minister as support for going back to the European Union, they'll soon find out how little control they actually possess.

Take her down, Boris. Now is the time.

UPDATE: Boris appears to know it has fallen to him to lead his nation to freedom. Greatness beckons, but will require boldness to seize it.
Boris Johnson is the favorite to be the next Tory leader - and has already refused to back Theresa May after her election nightmare. The outspoken Foreign Secretary was repeatedly asked if he believes Mrs May should be Prime Minister but would only say 'it's early days' after retaining his Uxbridge seat. He also stayed silent when a reporter suggested that the Tory leader was 'fatally wounded'.

Shocking result, even given the feebleness of May's campaign.

May revealed herself to be a feckless multiculturalists who was too thick to run on a pro-Brexit, anti-immigration line.

She'd already shot herself in the foot with a manifesto that contained such irrelevant, yet wildly unpopular policies as making sick old people sell their homes, censorship of the internet and legalising fox hunting.

The latest episodes of Muzzies Gone Wild offered her a golden opportunity to put the manifesto disaster behind her and focus on a popular campaign of hammering the jihadis. Instead it sounded more like she wanted to continue hammering people who criticise jihadis.

This was the biggest open goal in political history and the daft cow missed. Involuntary euthanasia wouldn't be unkind.

I've been listening to Nigel Farage's radio show (for shits 'n giggles) and the number of people who phoned in and asked "is she deliberately trying to lose?" was astonishing. And if you've ever listened, you'll know that most of his callers aren't pro-UKIP or anything.

For the desired realignment to occur, the Tories in their present form need to die... and they're dying. If another chapter of misplaced Chavez-ism needs to occur, then it will occur. But the inauthentic forms are hurting, both the Blairite left and the Tory right. If the emerging true right must contend with a true, unreconstructed left, so be it.

Blogger Jonathan Wales June 09, 2017 4:16 AM  

Unsurprisingly the cucks sold us down the river. There is no genuine party of the right. May's shift to the left was always going to end in tears. Luckily Corbyn is so inept, it didn't result in a Labour victory. A decent Labour leader would have cleaned up.

When your main policies are taking old people's homes away, and bringing back fox hunting, it will only end one way. She alienated the youth, and the older core vote didn't like the thought of not passing on their homes, so stayed away.

This combined with the limp wristed response to the terror attacks, cuts to the police, and a woeful record on immigration as home secretary put the final nails in the coffin.

Ironically a lot of old school, traditional Labour voters are anti-immigration, due to competition for jobs and low wages, and basic patriotism, and a general dislike of foreign types. Many voted for Brexit, May offered them nothing.

May surely cannot survive long.

May is pretty clearly toast after the dust settles. And this outcome is probably the "best" for the Pro-EU faction. It'll give the EU the most leverage in the Brexit talks because a Labour PM would have sold out hard on the talks, thus inducing a massive backlash after the next election.

The Globalist factions are still confused how to respond, as their control is slipping, but having May shoot herself in the foot was a solid move.

Don't be too harsh on young voters for overwhelmingly backing Corbyn. Yes, he's a communist and a terrorist sympathizer...but what the hell does that mean to someone born in 1994? Communists and Irish car bombers have never been a threat to young Britons, so they have no visceral loathing towards them.

But you know what IS a threat to young Britons? Soulless neoliberalism. Do you think Theresa May comes off as a solution to that? Does she bollocks, to use local slang.

Here's some perspective: the young were more likely to vote for Marine le Pen. The young are also more likely to have a negative view of the European Union (Britain is one of the few exceptions to this rule).

Blogger Antony June 09, 2017 5:09 AM  

May lost for many reasons, but part of it was that she called the election in the first place when it was unnecessary , the Tories should not have picked her as a leader to see us through Brexit due to her being pro EU. Additionally, the Tories are seen as a party that exists for banksters and wealthy landowners and not the ordinary folks, and Theresa May herself spent much time persecuting patriots such as Tommy Robinson and the English Defence League and banning Richard Spencer,Pamela Geller etc from entering the country.
One point I think coud be discussed is that I think Corbyn, with his anti Israel politics, inadvertently hit upon some "JQ by proxy" support with many people, especially the youth, picking up on this to stick two fingers up at the banksters.

Blogger Resident Moron™ June 09, 2017 5:14 AM  

This might or might not be what May wanted (her loyalty to the Brexit decision has always been doubtful), but it is certainly what the establishment wants.

Anything that will delay or derail Brexit is a bullet dodged as far as they're concerned.

"Her response to the two Muslim attacks sealed the loss of her Parliamentary majority."

I rang up the Tories the day after the Manchester attack for their response, but the parties had all decided not to do any campaigning that day. The poor devils in the office couldn't do anything except note that I'd rung. I wanted to hear about any sort of reasonable policy adjustment, but it took another attack before TM made a half-baked response.

This whole 'show respect to the dead' thing is a load of old ballcocks, just an excuse for dithering.

But if the Conservatives reach the 318 now projected, May will be able to form a narrower government with the Democratic Unionist Party, a right-wing, pro-Brexit, Eurosceptic faction centered in Ulster. The DUP is projected to win 10 seats – not enough to push the Conservatives to a majority if they remain with at 315 seats, but enough if May’s party secures just one more seat.

From what I can gather, as of 8 minutes ago, the Cons got the 318, so now the balance of power lies in the hands of the Orange Order of Northern Ireland:

I hope you are correct about Brexit. The rest? It almost really doesn't matter, given that there is no real differences between the lot of them. I'll be glad to not have to ignore her anymore. Though, as British politicians go, I'll just be ignoring the next one. They are a retarded people. Or... I hope so. Either that or they have fully returned to paganism and/or satanism and that... is how that goes.

Anonymous RomanCandle June 09, 2017 5:30 AM  

Here are two reasons why Vox is right not to worry about Brexit:

1. Two-thirds of the UK electorate now supports Brexit. The terrible predictions about Brexit disaster have obviously not come to pass, so that has pushed alot of lukewarm Remainers into the Leave camp.

2. The EU has no desire for a "soft Brexit". If the British can get a deal that is seen to include most of the perks of EU membership without actually being in the EU, that will embolden Euroskeptics in other nations, especially in the East. Instead, they want to "punish" the UK with harsh terms. Obviously, from an alt-right perspective, this is no punishment at all, but this is not the majortarian view in the UK...at least not yet.

Not a bunch of cuckservatives, but the descendants of the hard men. I cannot see the Orangemen accepting a May style microregulation of speech. They would not accept their preachers being arrested for a standard sermon -- or their mates priest for giving the same sermon against Allah.

This is a good result. May and her technocrats will be rolled and Corbyn won't get power. The fascists in the SNP lost heavily.

And as Corbyn takes Labour multinational and globalist, the Tories will have to defend England, or die.

Labour, Lib Dems + SNP altogether don't have enough seats for a majority.

The Tories will have to join the DUP, who are solidly more Old Right than UKIP.

If the Tories had won an outright majority they would've used that as a justification for all conceivable, and previously unimagined, forms of cuckery.

May jumped the gun, assuming broad support for her Brexit strategy could be leveraged to push a patform of poison pills to the public, and the public has responded by resoundingly dousing her in cold water.

This said, the anti-Brexit camp are now capitalizing on her mismanagement.

I know the British press are universally "remoaner" SJW's, but I don't know enough about British politics to understand whether the UK is now in danger of gutting Brexit or whether the coalition government forced upon May will forge forward and cleanly sever ties while scuttling the distraction of some Tory manifesto.

Blogger SemiSpook37 June 09, 2017 6:54 AM  

Tend to agree on the Brexit stance; what sunk the Tories this go-around was the assumption that they could shoehorn in all of the other standard stuff using Brexit as a cover. Unbelievably stupid move for obvious reasons. The inaction by the government after the Manchester and London Bridge attacks didn't exactly help, either.

Will say this about Sadiq Khan: being such a horrible mayor of London will definitely work in Boris Johnson's favor to take over as leader. It'll be interesting to see how all that comes together here in the next few days.

This is probably the best outcome we could hope for. The Tories were on track to wreck the economy with their fantasy "Hard Brexit", and now they'll have to cooperate with Labour and the DUP to come up with a workable divorce. With the surprise resurgance of Tory support in Scotland, it's clear that Labour has no real path back to power yet. And the Dim Libs remain on life support.

So, how many examples need to be made that polls are next to worthless anymore and attempting to run a country based on polls is a fools errand. Hillary was predicted to run away in a landslide in the 2nd week of October. Now May thought she was going to run away in a landslide again based on a polls. How about you attempt to do the right thing and defend your people rather than worrying about what the polls say? Protecting your people and culture will always be popular no matter what the polls might say. If you do those things in this period of chaos you are guarenteed to win the only polls that matters which are the elections.

Like Mrs Clinton she believed her own publicity; the other possibility is that she really was at the time she called the election some 25 points ahead of her nearest rival in the polls - and she lost the lot. It has to go down as the most incompetent of campaigns - the dreadful manifesto, the failure to deal with terrorism, her pathetic Facebook post which began by wailing that she would be out of office if she lost six seats and clearly needed a strong man to save her- hardly the actions of a leader (compare Corbyn who never complained despite the endless Media onsluaght), the failure to appear at the BBC debate and then sending the awful woman Rudd, and the stop start nature of the campaign. Mrs May: dreadful anti-male Home Secretary was out of her league - and that against a supposedly unelectable Labour leader who shone against her. I am furious.

I found it very difficult to know how to vote - voted Tory in 2015. I did not like the idea that the election would be used by the Prime Minister-ess as Referendum number 2 was appalled by the Manifesto yet live in a safe Tory seat held by a cabinet minister; Labour always comes a poor third after the Lib Dems but not this time finishing albeit distantly second.

In her own words "enough is enough" - she has to go.

And this outcome is probably the "best" for the Pro-EU faction.

I dunno. The Tories didn't deserve a majority and could easily have screwed up Brexit on their own.

Their new best friends in the DUP are more conservative than the Conservatives, and probably aren't going to support more government-sponsored poz.

This is a great result for Jeremy Corbyn (the power of low expectations) but a terrible result for the Remain faction in Labour, who are also the metropolitan globalist shitlib faction within Labour.

Not only does this give unreconstructed socialists breathing room to continue taking over that party, making it unlikely they'll be in power again soon (by Blairite standards, Jez did horribly and there's probably a ceiling to Raving Monster Loony socialist support), but Jeremy was never a committed Remainer in the first place.

With a wafer thin margin, the new government will have to wrap up a deal with the EU quickly or walk away quickly.

What a load of rubbish!
Boris was the de facto LEADER of the Brexit campaign!
If not for Boris Brexit might not have happened!


Maybe so, but he was only made leader of one of the two leave campaigns (his was dubbed the official one) to prevent Farage from leading it. His campaign was somewhat ineptly run as well, the establishment all the way up to Cameron and beyond never expected the leave vote to win. The Tories also conspired with Labour to prevent Farage from winning a seat.

Boris is a globalist who only ever posed as a eurosceptic; while he was editor of the Spectator and a newspaper columnist he was against the EU and their insane laws (I think he wrote about regulations on the straightness of banana once) but in his deeds he has only furthered the globalist agenda. Don't forget, after Cameron resigned he was the frontrunner to take over the leadership but inexplicably pulled out leaving the path clear for May, who had been a quiet remainer. Why? I presume because TPTB didn't want a tubthumping Brexiteer leading the Tories during the "negotiations". Now that enough time has passed, he can safely take over and carry out the agenda of leaving while staying.

The real bright spot with Boris is how hilarious he is and he is also quite charming. I'm looking forward to the prospect of him sparring with goofy Corbyn in the Commons. Much mirth will be had.

I have no affection for Teresa May or her Leftist ideas. The Tories may have seen her as the natural replacement when David Cameron walked out after Brexit, but she showed her true colors during the time she was Home Secretary.

If you will recall, it was Teresa May (Home Secretary) that banned Michael Savage from visiting the UK.....a ban that still continues.
Given the events in Manchester and London the past few weeks, it seems clear that Michael Savage was not the person who should have been banned from setting foot on British soil.

Teresa May has a simple problem. Even if she actually changed her mind about UK policies, there is no one who would believe a word of it until she actually DID it.

Now the Tories will have exactly what they have needed for many years....ADULT SUPERVISION, in the form of a coalition with the DUP in Northern Ireland to preserve the majority in the Commons. I could not be more pleased. The Northern Ireland Protestants are in the position of casting the deciding vote on the next government. (I will be wearing Orange for the next week.) No more Whitehall betrayals of Northern Ireland to curry favor with the bloody IRA and Marxist Sinn Fein.

Please, Franz of Bavaria is a useless old queen. His younger brother Max (2nd in line) is better, but quite old and has never ruled anything but his brewery. His eldest daughter Sophie (3rd in line) is Hereditary Princess of Lichtenstein. The fancy title means her husband Alois runs the place even though his father isn't dead yet.
But if you want an English monarch, skip straight to her eldest son Joseph. Mid 20s, born and schooled in London.

I have just read that of the 650 M.P.s yesterday elected no less than 45 are out LGBTQ types. Over 7% of M.P.s are thus like that - a far higher percentage than for the rest of the country.

Last night and early this morning as I watched the result come in I was shocked at how many M.P.s do not have British names and also at how many were female. I presume that when the number of female M.P.s exceed fifty per cent that as with University Admissions no one will point out the inequality. When Parliament is a Matriarchy men will drift away MgTOW style as the place descends into a Police State.

that if you are aren't a socialist before you get a job you have no brain. If you aren't a conservative after you become a taxpayer you have no brain.

The terrible predictions about Brexit disaster have obviously not come to pass, so that has pushed alot of lukewarm Remainers into the Leave camp.

Anonymous CC June 09, 2017 12:39 PM

Yeah, they're the Democratic Unionist Party, they were always the hardliners on the Ulster Protestant side. They were the party of Ian Paisley and both they and Sinn Féin came to greater prominence after the Good Friday peace accords in 1997 to squeeze out the nationalist and unionist parties in the middle. They actually came to share power together in Northern Ireland which was unthinkable years ago.

Ian Paisley always said he considered himself Irish but he and his people would never contemplate leaving the UK and they've always been successful in that mission while making grudging concessions here and there. The plus point in all this is that they are very pro-Brexit, so they will have to big part to play in what's to come. I never thought I'd be grateful for the DUP. Strange times.

Apparently the most googled question in England today is "who are the DUP?" The English have always been very indifferent to the Irish problem. It doesn't help either that Northern Ireland is one of the most complicated political situations in the world.

To the various English commenters here: My friend indicated that according to her British stepdaughter, since the London "incident" and May's groveling statement, the UK has started banning an increasing number of websites {she specifically mentioned a few cuckservative ones, such as Paul Joseph Watson}. Are you finding that to be the case? Any difficulty accessing Vox or repercussions from doing so?

I was thinking about it after reading your comment, and I actually think, now, that explaining the Northern Ireland issue is fairly simple. Once one rejects the Civic Nationalist perspective.

Northern Irish Unionists are Protestant, Irish-Scot-British and part of the colonists from England, who had to actively surpress the Catholic Irish for about 300 years. In all that time, neither side ever became "British".

After the split and the Republic of Ireland happening, the end result for non-full Irish Protestants, in the loss of political power, is really obvious. They'd have either been genocided or they'd need to flee. Leftist Catholics are Marxist, so it was less a "Republician" movement and more a Leftist Purge situation.

The response was, thusly, be very, very hard. And, look what happened? The Unionists won.

My take from the UK, apologies for length.
Last time I remember, Boris wanted amnesty for all illegals in the UK and supported an open door immigration policy.
May, for all her completely real faults, rolled up 13m+ votes at 42%, the most votes they have had since 1979, and more votes than Blair got in his landslide victory in 1997. Under any other circumstances this was a triumph and a crushing victory.
According to reports, she is practically the only person in the Tory cabinet who understands that they need to keep their pledge to reduce immigration (leaving whether or not she means it to one side here; she is one of the few left in the party at a senior level who 'gets' that they need to at least keep up appearences on this issue, the others are actively pro-immigration(!) AFAIK).
It was the unusually strong counter-mobilisation for Labour and the fact that as the immigrant children from the late 1990s, when Labour opened the borders, finally begin to reach voting age there is now a larger permanent reserve of Labour voters. This is only the tip of the demographic iceberg, those 3rd world immigrants born in 1997/8/9 only scratch the surface of the coming browning of the vote, and an awful lot of Conservtive voting whites (and old fashioned patriotic Labour types) are on schedule to die over the next decade or two from old age...
That plus the leftist indoctrination of the broader youth who were pushed incredibly strongly to turn out for Labour by everyone from Grime rappers and Church of England vicars to 'charities', student unions, teachers and university academics, lefty cultural figures, luvvies and celebs etc, music icons.
Looking forward, every subsequent election from now on, starting, presumably, in 2023 (All 3rd world persons deposited from 1997-2005 voting) will be very substantially less white-British. Peoples' heads will spin with how fast it happens. The 1990s generation was still 85% White-British in terms of births. The 2000s generation will see this plummet down to 70%.
On paper it looks like May simply blew a 20% lead in the polls, but under the suface, the times are finally changing in visible ways. And yes, she did blow their lead by being shit too.
That Corbyn was clearly hated by the hated MSM didn't hurt either, and he has got away with being sold as a sort of right-on grandpa who hates injustice and loves giving you presents. A few solid and/or popular ideas around less foreign wars, building more houses and renationalising the railways allowed people to overlook a lot.
I can't see who would replace May who would not be worse and less poplular. Her replacement would literally have to be more popular than Thatcher was. Hammond more poplular than Thatcher? Rudd? Open borders Johnson? I just don't see it.
Unless Labour implodes, it going to be very tight from here on out.

Blogger wreckage June 10, 2017 9:42 AM  

@92, the thing is, once the white vote gets down a bit further, it will become The White Vote. That Brexit and a right-shifted Tory coalition won AFTER the "de whitening" of the UK had kicked in, only demonstrates that fact.

First, anyone with anything even slightly iffy in his past would have a hard time getting elected. Second, anyone with any brains, even if he could get past the scrutiny, would probably deem it unworthwhile to put himself into the media crosshairs.
