Is this proof that, despite all the Tory-bashing of recent months, when people get in the booth they know there is really only one party to vote for?

And on another slant, the good burghers of Stoke, the denizens of Brexit have actually elected a devout "Remainer" which goes to show the correlation between gold, turds and red rosettes.

I think the damage is too deep now, and a change in leadership wont turn around the party's fortunes. At least not for some years. Fortunately for Labour, there isn't a really credible challenger to them at the moment, so they can afford to languish just a little bit longer, whilst they sort themselves out.

Yes I'm baffled as to why people think the Tories would piss on them if they were on fire let alone vote for them.

As for Labour, Norpig sums it up perfectly.

Have you ever considered you might be the baffling one? Reach out to friends and family for honest answers.

Pre election betting favoured either UKIP or the Tories to take Copeland so it's no surprise to anyone. Apart from Jeremy Corbyn who insists it was not his fault and that he won't be standing down.
Betfair now have him at 1/3 to resign before the general election. Personally I don't think they'll ever manage to prise his gnarled fingers off the steering wheel let alone expect him to go voluntarily.

In other news, the UKIP leader lost again. 
Is that news really?

It's a sad indictment of the times we live in that to increase the chances of success, personality carries more weight than policy, and media experience more weight than moral compass.

It might seem harsh to say it but Corbyn is just too ugly to succeed.

That's what they said to Nat,but she pulled it off.

And she'll be pulling it off for many years to come.

I don't think it is his looks that is the problem. It is that he really has no idea of how to appeal to anybody other than his fanbase. He is incapable of leadership and seems unable to seize upon the crisis in funding for the NHS and social care as a means of credibly attacking the Tories. Plus the fact that he consistently ignored the party whip for years makes it difficult for him to criticise others who now ignore him. And finally he is not a man of principle - he clearly wanted brexit and nothing he has done since suggests otherwise.

We now have the ultimate irony of a PM who opposed brexit taking us into a hard brexit opposed by a man who claims to have voted remain whilst obviously wanting us to leave.

No - he really isn't a very attractive character and not very media friendly.

Has Kevin Spacey got a British passport yet?

Even Lex Luthor is a better proposition.....

Correct this says nothing about the Tories and every thing about the abject state of the labour party.

I am a member of the Labour party however until JC Fooks off labour will not only fail to be in government, they will fail to be her majesty's opposition, now that breaks my heart.

Now, more than ever, the country needs a credible opposition to hold government to account and provide a balance. Sadly, all other parties are in disarray. Turnout in elections will plummet.

On the day that the Chancellor pulls one of the biggest U turns in political history after threats from his own party lead him to announce that the increase in Class 4 NI for the self-employed announced in last week's budget would not go ahead, the ONS released it's latest employment figures (thought to be up) and wage level increases (thought to be down)

Looks like the economic forecasts for Brexit are starting to come true i.e. inflation and prices will rise whilst wages freeze leading to a high employment low income society. The LGA writes that public sector pay will be frozen until the end of the decade at least. Sorry Norpig.

If the Tories get their way, Mr Pig will find himself working in the private sector soon.

(Same job and location, just a new contract with a new employer with a snazzy name.)

The Tories see us public sector workers as easy targets to fleece. It's been the same for years, no pay rises or just 1% over the last 5-6 years and as Lusty says will continue for years to come.

I'm at the top of my pay band so in real terms i get paid less than i did 5 years ago  Crying or Very sad

Didn't Hammond say that the £2 billion p.a. that the rise in Class 4 insurance would generate would be specifically used to plug the gap in social care funding?

If so, does the U turn mean that his pledge for social care funding is also going down the pan?

My commiserations. As a former public sector worker with two sons now working in the public sector I know exactly what you mean.

We've recently been informed of a change in our duties.
As well as cutting the grass/bushes/hedges,tree lopping and shredding,we now have to empty the litter bins,if any are in situ,as there certainly are on the retail sites,and pick up litter.
No extra pay. No extra hours.
I've no idea what's happened to the people who usually do these jobs.
I've also heard a rumour that we're moving into 'car park management'. Sounds ominous.
The fact is we've been taken over by a much larger company,and they seem to want to cram everything under one roof.

Embarrassing post.

Inflation was rising before Brexit.

Prices were rising before brexit.

There was a pay freeze before the term 'Brexit' had been invented.

You really have no idea what's going on in the real world. I bet you blame your erection problems on Brexit.

Tory cat fight with Heseltine amongst others wading in to slag off Hammond and May.
