There was an overlap but now he is the MP for Uxbridge, and indeed a cabinet minister. In case you don't know Uxbridge is in West London in the Borough of Hillingdon. It's where Brunel University is.

EDIT: I just looked it up. The seat's formal name is Uxbridge and South Ruislip.

Thanks. I know where Uxbridge is, I know London pretty well tbf. A safe seati take it?

It's so weird.

I still think the Tories will get a majority as per last time when exit poll said hung parliament.

But it gives terrifyingly enormous power to DUP.

And small majority or not that's May *%^@**.


Given your track record for getting every prediction totally wrong wouldn't it be better to champion a Labour win , then your 'kiss of death' would guarantee a win for the one you really wanted to triumph....?

Owen Coyle for PM.

I wouldn't write anything off yet. I predicted (like most) a substantial Tory majority.

But I will be beyond delighted to be wrong.

Sunderland and Newcastle dampening the mood a bit though.

Don't know what to make of the Newcastle and Sunderland results. But not good enough to make that exit poll come true. Still think it will be a Tory majority plus DUP.

It's the *%^@*** hope that kills.

It's all over the *%^@*** shop. Swing to the Tories in Sunderland and taking seats off the SNP in Scotland. Where are Labour doing well enough to pick up 30 odd seats?????

Getting depressed again.

Wasn't the exit poll two years ago wrong? I thought it suggested a hung parliament and the Tories got an overall majority. I'm simply not sure how trustworthy they are. My own guess is that the Tories will have a slim overall majority, although it is a guess. I think the probable collapse in the UKIP vote is more likely to benefit the Tories than Labour.

But I stand by my earlier post. May's rather ruthless Party (towards getting rid of leaders it sees as an electoral liability) will see to it that this will be the one and only general election in which she'll be its leader. My guess is she'll be 'persuaded' to resign at some point before the next election and be formally applauded for being a fine Party leader while she was in charge, even though in reality she'll be forced out.

I'm not Darren however I'll suggest the polls wrong. It just doesn't make sense. I can't see how labour can pick up that volume of seats.

This is *%^@*** bonkers. Btw, I'm onto a second bottle of wine so haven't a clue what's going on apart from people being on stage in Wrexham. I think this is all good though!

She is lovely to look at but what a *%^@. I have a soft crush on Sophie Raworth, Mishal Hussain and even Kuensberg. She would be a cruel mistress

After Brexit and Trump how can it be a surprise. Many probably just voting for the one that's not currently in power.

Didn't realize Gibbs is 27! I keep seeing him as this 19yo breaking into the squad. 15mil is too high for him? In this day and age? I don't think so. He's a fine LB. Not Arsenal or top 4 quality but a very decent, solid LB.

Everyone is trying to raid Monaco the same way Leicester got was being raided. I like Sidibe, but I hear Man Utd are also after him. He can play both full back positions as well.

So does that mean the UK has to negotiate Brexit with itself and Europe? Maybe a Brentrance is on the cards.

One thing I've learned down the years is it does matter. The cynical policies that Clinton would probably enacted, or even good-ol'-boy Republicans, would have been vastly better than the chaos this orange dipshit is unleashing, mostly it appears, out of sheer ignorance. Apart from everything else, he's *%^@** up Nato and the GCC is record time. What a tool!

So, possible hung parliament or whatever the term is from what I can tell from the news. Interesting times we are in.

Recounts I suspect. In one seat the tellers have been sent home 'cos so knackered. In one Scottish consitutency the Tories clung on with a majority of 2.

They are just utterly mental results all round. The Scots didn't save anybody except Theresa May.

I was certainly wrong that Corbyn's dodgy national security record would undo him - it seems that austerity a much bigger issue especially for young whose turnout obviously pivotal long may it last. Direction of travel all important but we won't see any of the manifesto in a action because...sorry to be a buzz breaker here...Labour still lost by quite some margin.

SF have won 7 seats. Importantly for the W'Minster dynamic, the other nationalist party, the SDLP, who are supporters of Labour of most issues have been wiped out and lost all of their 3 seats - including John Hume's seat of Foyle - surely the death knell for them as they are irrelevant now in the North of Ireland.

DUP power is worrying and frankly the Conservative Party should be condemned for getting into bed with a party that is based on religious fundamentalism and whose worldview is out of step with the rest of the UK and the Republic of Ireland. The only benefits I can see from this arrangement are - softer border than May's hard brexit; more dinero for the North possible only for it to be squandered by the DUPPERS who have their hand in the till as evidenced by a number of recent scandals relating to them that largely caused power sharing here to be suspended, possibly permanently.

I don't think anyone was expecting Labour to actually win, that that isn't much of a wet blanket. The Tories will self-destruct now, I feel.

Agreed Niall but I reckon there will be more than just a few quid. Plenty of money heading your way I reckon, the DUP will milk this for every penny. This is very dangerous for the North, how arsed will the DUP be to get the power sharing executive up and running when they can play Billy Big Bollix in London?
