Labour always overspend and bankrupt the country - their socialist policies were seen through by the sensible majority and I genuinely think that as people get older (overall) they become more ‘conservative’ anyway so I can’t see socialists taking over this country any time soon.
Oh and the same will happen America too - Trump won’t be getting impeached and he’ll destroy the Dems at the next election.

the other thing that astounds me are the aggressive, resentful reactions of those with supposedly strong liberal/socialist values.

Bob Dylan said it best…
“ Now, I’m liberal, but to a degree
I want ev’rybody to be free
But if you think that I’ll let Barry Goldwater
Move in next door and marry my daughter
You must think I’m crazy!
I wouldn’t let him do it for all the farms in Cuba…”

I didn’t blame that on labour. Look at the 40s, 60s and 70s.
This vote was the clearest message from the people -
WE. DONT. WANT. SOCIALISM.
Thanks but no thanks.

And it doesn’t help that we now have an entire generation that don’t know how to lose.
Democracy only works when the losers accept and admit defeat.
Same as in the USA, the press and media outlets will be on Boris’ back throughout the next four years.
Just look at the response from Labour MP Faiza Shaheen who was trying to take Ian Duncan Smith’s seat (with the help of Hugh Grant):
“They can enjoy tonight. But you, me and the rest of the troublemakers have got to come for them tomorrow.We should have one. We really should have won”
How more entitled can you be?

I dont hear many of my friends complaining who swing to the left to be fair, I think it's what we all expected. For everyone complaining there's another one gloating.
I really hope this removes the constant discussion of leaving the EU.
