UK Politics 🇬🇧 🗳️ (Part 3)
If we look at a mandate for Brexit, let's look at the number of people who voted for Remain parties vs Leave parties:
Conserviates - 13,966,451
The Brexit Party - 642,323
DUP - 244,127
Total for Leave - 14852901
Labour - 10,269,076
SNP - 1,242,380
Lib Dem - 3,696,423
Green - 865,697
Total for Remain - 16073576
Yet the Conservatives are talking about "the will of the people" and that Brexit is what people want.
On the scale of things I've seen some pretty astonishing responses to the #ukpol election result, but "corbyn isn't even that left wing" takes the cake.
I need to revive my personal instance as soon as possible... Sorry followers of @qy!
