Milliband will be visited by the men in dark suits very soon and his brother is packing a parachute ready for the next by-election.

The seething green teeth lefties are cringing at the thought that so many thousands of people could have even contemplated voting for the 'bigots and racists' of UKIP when all they were doing were expressing their discontent and frustration of not being able to merely enquire why they could not get their little Johnny in the school next door when Bartok who lives 15 mikes away is attending the place or why their front gate has been melted down for scrap for the umpteenth time.

Even the Darleks that used to be seen outside the Granada Cinema in Walthamstow have apparently been melted down as scrap.

Yes I have to agree, the 'electorate have spoken' and as there are so many European immigrants in London voting, it would be like Turkey's voting for Christmas Dinner to have voted otherwise.

Thing is, for the past 25 years anti- euro MP's from across the party perspective have been warning of the consequences of the electorate being pushed too far, well they have been and this is the start of the backlash. The EU's monetary union policies have failed, we were never a member, despite numerous cross party members promoting this terrible unworkable system.

We are now contributing financially and economically for this failure and will be such you years.

These has got to be something wrong with a system where people from poverty stricken nations like Romania, where wages are a tenth of ours, are entitled to wander into this country without any job plans or accommodation arranged. I do not blame these people as anything has to be better than what they have.

Would it not be better than to encourage investment in their own country to build up their own economy? This system is flawed and there is backlash across the entire EU because of it and far right groups prosper when people feel threatened.

Keep going, Cornbeefur, you're trolling is not getting the responses it once did - you need to up your game.

Maybe go back to your classic work - y'know the green toothed lefties on the Orford Road and the Darleks.

BTW - the Tories and UKIP lost round here. HA! HA! HA!

Let's all just relax and enjoy the warm light of a Labour victory.

Let all the UKIP and Tory racists and idiots write what they like. They are welcome to their sour grapes.

Cornbeefur - please help yourself to a bit of trolling.

Just remember. We won. They lost! HA! HA! HA!
