Expenditure includes mass nationalisation, council house building, ending tuition fees and student grants, plus green stuff. Taxes come from abolishing higher earnings limit for national insurance, more inheritance taxes, taxes on the city and buy to let, a wealth tax, more taxes on corporations, plus abolishing HS2, Trident and airports expansion.
As I said, mentalists.

Pic too big, numbers from graph are:

BXP 31.57% (+31.57)
LD 20.25% (+13.38)
LAB 14.12% (-11.29)
GRN 12.09% (+4.23)
CON 9.09% (-14.85)
SNP 3.58% (+1.11)
CHG 3.44% (+3.44)
UKIP 3.30% (-24.20)
OTH 1.58% (-3.67)
PLC 0.99% (+0.28)

The really interesting thing here is the Brexit Party gain is less than the UKIP/Tory collapse, while the Lib Dem/Green gain is more than the Labour party collapse.

Those Tory Remainers look to have followed Hestletine's lead and jumped ship too.
Alastair Campbell confirmed he voted lib dem on the radio. Mole Valley in Surrey was the 6th safest conservative seat in the last general election. In the Euros it voted lib dem. The conservatives and labour both have the same problem - they cannot please all of their voters.

Just had a look at the breakdown of vote in Wycombe, The Chilterns and South bucks districts. These 3 areas are taditionally Tory heartlands but probably just remain tendencies due to the demographics of the population. Brexit was the largest party in Wycombe and surprisingly South Bucks with Lib Dems 2nd. Chilterns was Lib Dem whilst Brexit 2nd.

What did surprise me was labour had made slight in roads in the last GE. Now albeit the Torys took huge losses, well they did have most to lose, they still finished higher than Labour in all 3 seats. In fact Labour finished 5th in all 3. The trend continued in to neighbouring Windsor and Maidenhead which was also surprisingly won by Brexit. That is very alarming for Labour come a GE. I didn't even receive a plea to vote Tory this year it's almost as if they didn't bother. Yet I received one with Mr Corbyns face on probably because the in road they did make at the last GE and they haven't made a dent. That should be very alarming for Labour as these are the exact seat they need to win to be able to govern. If they can't even finish above a Tory party that didn't even bother then they are in serious trouble. If this trend is to continue for a GE in these sort of areas it will be a shoot out between Tories who I imagine would gain the Brexit vote back and Lib Dems. I think Labour need to change now with a more moderate Labour leader but how would that go down with the Momentum movement. Like him or not Millaband would probably win by a landslide now but I'm not sure that the direction the Labour membership want to go down.

Wouldn't necessarily take the percentages at face value, turnout was a fair bit higher than previous European elections.

Sorry.

I thought you were serious. It’s difficult to tell when a posters usual contributions are so ludicrous.

Can anyone explain why the Greek PM has called a snap election ?
Strikes me like turkeys voting for an early Christmas.

Miliband is a stretch. You have to pay your dues in the Labour Party, and running off to the US for a highly remunerated NGO job is not the way to do it. Too many in the party would not accept him as the knight in shining armour.
