"Time and time again, liberals are surprised that people vote for cultural/social reasons as much for economic ones. "

Are they? Liberals is a bit of a vague term, but "non-conservative" policies at this election seemed pretty cultural and social and not very economic.

Well I have had a great old time since 10.00 on the evening of Thursday.

Even the rugby match in Clermont was a fantastic experience and lived up to all I hoped it would be .

I personally believe that Centrist Boris has an opportunity to make a real difference to our entire nation.

I am looking forward to the next ten years very optimistically!!

I have also been on cloud 9 since that emphatic victory. It was a huge relief considering the alternative & there is real hope for the future. I find the embittered & sour attitude of Kinnock junior completely out of proportion & frankly insulting to the millions who voted Conservative. He is virtually saying that all are thick & have sleepwalked through the past 9 years. So patronising. He & many other labour moderates who now say they respected the EU referendum result refused to back the best option, Mrs May’s deal, again & again, saying they wanted some hybrid arrangement whereby we were more in than out. They only have themselves to blame, no-one else.

I think a lot of voters will be happy that remain mps in leave constituencies have gone...and those constituencies reallh did not a choice.
Regardless of tradition etc...they voted again to pick the candidate who said theyd do what they wanted.

I also think some remain voters voted for their definition of democracy

In the interest of closure, they have it, and the country can move on.

I was hoping that the rotund to$$er would stop his silly schoolboy posturing with the EU now he has a big majority. Apparently not..

Yes they will, quietly, when the time comes.

Look on the bright side, I just changed $ into GBP which BJ made a bit cheaper

So i don't expect Johnsons team to roll over.

By putting no deal back on the table, that should concentrate a few minds.

Why - it didn't in the past - well not in the EU anyway.

I've got a buy order at 1.20 which has been there for a while - it was creeping towards it until Bojo said what he did, never mind.

It was, or always could be, neutered by the Commons. No chance of it now.

I think no deal is less likely to happen now, and the EU will know that. Boris isn't subject to the whim of the extreme of his party.

The money markets are taking a different view.

Taking a wider view, you have to wonder what the EU will look like when we have left and the 27 become 26? It seems it could even be that the 26 become 25 with a forced Polexit as a result of non alignment of the Polish courts with EU Supreme court.

Mr CC

Ironically, for very different reasons I might be off to Portugal sooner than I thought(Sm14) but we will have to see.

Seriously I am very positive that Centrist Boris, assisted by "The People" Cummings will do all that I want for our public services, our carbon/climate initiatives, our infrastructure, our housing, our productivity growth, our investment in new technology etc, etc.

I am sure that a number of posters on 'ere will be on here posting congratulations when he makes progress .
