    Oh no, I wonder what would have happened if those 15 votes had been negotiated for, what a shame Tories, needed UKIP votes just to come 2nd.

    CG should be replaced with a leader willing to negotiate with the libertarians on a level playing field.

    Congratulations Saoirse:3.

    It’s a shame verification hit us worse but I’m grateful to ThatsAGoodOne349 for representing our party in this by-election.

    The right would have won quite easily...

    Let me drag you back down to Earth my friend. We’re not on a level playing field, never were. I’m also not sure if you remember that your party’s manifesto was attacking everyone, including potential partners... I don’t think any leader of a party would be willing to negotiate after seeing that.

    If a next Tory leader negotiates support with the current Libtardarian muppets, I'll write a motion of no confidence myself. We'd have to be completely timid power-hungry invertebrate jellies to exchange any favours with these vastly immoral and opportunistic creatures. Helplessly watching the passage of some left-wing legislation into virtual law is nothing compared to sacrificing one's own moral principles only to gain an advantage in a game.

    Can I check then that from a voting record perspective, MPs elected in by-elections will take on a new number rather than the number of the seat that went to by-election?

    Also congratulations to Saoirse:3! It's not over 'til the fat lady sings...

    Thanks all! As I say it was a good and clearly very competitive contest

    I’m surprised that Saunders even bother responding when your dl tried the Im not asking I’m demanding attempt.

    Meanwhile we’ll be laughing all the way to the bank when you don’t have UKIP support in the GE and finish third.

    Really if your leadership was in the least bit competent a deal could have been achieved, they need to realise what you eventually did you can’t just demand that you get your own way you have to work together not even you were stupid enough to try a line like this ”Back our ****ing candidate, whip your votes, we're no longer asking.”

    Considering we have been in talks before, I think you have a Motion of No Confidence to write.

    It's also interesting to see the Conservative Party accuse others of being power-hungry - after all, your Leader and Deputy Leader rejected a deal because they wanted to feel a sense of superiority. That superiority did not shine in the election, it did not shine in the previous by-election and - considering your alliance with UKIP - it did not shine once again. We are the party of the right and you will continue to fall so long as your party remains stuck in delusions of grandeur and panders to the likes of you.

    Congratulations Saoirse:3!
