‘It’s GAME OVER’ Andrew Neil STUNS McDonnell after Labour’s catastrophic exit poll result

0

JOHN MCDONNELL said the exit polls which suggest the Tories are on track for their best result since 1987 were “extremely disappointing” and called it a “Brexit election”.

Speaking on the BBC, John McDonnell said: “We knew it would be tough, if it is anywhere near this, it is extremely disappointing”. The shadow chancellor appeared to ignore any problems in the Labour Party with Jeremy Corbyn and blamed the result on Brexit.  The Labour veteran MP said: “Brexit dominated the election.

“They wanted to get it done. Let me be clear, I am not sure Brexit will be done as a result of this.

“I think people are frustrated and want Brexit out of the way.

“There will be negotiations for a long period of time.”

Andrew Neil said it was not fair to blame the result all on Brexit, before he swiped at the shadow chancellor claiming if the results were correct, it was “game over” for Mr Corbyn’s leadership.

He said: “If this exit poll is anywhere near right. This result is a catastrophe for you, Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party.”

He later said: “It must surely be game over for you and Mr Corbyn.”

Labour’s Jess Phillips tweeted: “There are very few words for how heartbroken I am for the community I represent who have been through enough”.

Laura Kuenssberg tweeted: “Labour candidates getting in touch saying Brexit wasn’t only issue despite what McDonnell said – one said ‘problems were much deeper than Brexit.

“Corbyn and Corbynism much bigger and deeper issues on the doorstep'”. 

The signs of a surprise vote surge for the Tories put Mr Johnson on course for the party’s biggest majority since the days of Margaret Thatcher.

Millions of voters braved driving rain and blustery winds to go to the polls in the first winter election since 1974 and the first held in December since 1923.

Turnout was expected to be the highest at a general election in years after Brexit excited passion among voters on both sides of the debate.

Speaking on the BBC following the exit poll announcement, Jeremy Vine said: “This result changes the House of Commons – it end that period in Parliament when no-one could get anything done.

“To command an overall majority in the House of Commons you need 326 MPs. But the Exit Poll has Boris Johnson going a long way past that to 368 MPs. That is a gain of 50 MPs on Theresa May.

“What it indicates is just how bad the Labour result is. The Exit Poll number of 199 is below what Michael Foot did in 1983.”

The forecasted result is Labour’s worst since 1935, with Jeremy Corbyn’s party losing 71 seats since 2017.

In what is likely to be a hammer blow to Mr Corbyn’s leadership of the party, the result is also set to be the best performance by the Conservative Party at a general election since Margaret Thatcher won 376 seats in 1987.
