00:00 - 00:03Paul, the exit poll is out. It shows a massive majority for the Tories.
00:04 - 00:05The red wall has crumbled. The Nazis broke through.
00:05 - 00:07Even Bolsover has gone blue.
00:08 - 00:12Seats Labour has held since their creation have elected Tory MPs.
00:12 - 00:15Our losses are twice as bad in the most working-class areas.
00:17 - 00:19The poll must be wrong.
00:19 - 00:21The working classes support Remain.
00:24 - 00:26Paul...
00:27 - 00:28Actually...
00:31 - 00:33Actually two-thirds of the working class voted to Leave.
00:34 - 00:36It was the most class-correlated vote in decades.
00:53 - 00:58Everyone out except Ash Sarkar, Owen Jones and Aaron Bastani.
01:13 - 01:15How the fuck could this happen?
01:15 - 01:17The voters are fucking racists!
01:18 - 01:23Selfish old bastards fucking over the young!
01:25 - 01:28I had a perfect strategy for victory!
01:29 - 01:31I told Labour to back Remain!
01:31 - 01:34They should have fucking listened to me!
01:34 - 01:37But they dithered and delayed and fucked everything up!
01:37 - 01:40And now we lost to the LibDems!
01:40 - 01:42But Paul, we lost to the Tories...
01:42 - 01:46The fucking LibDems! "Bollocks to Brexit" should have been OUR slogan!
01:46 - 01:48The LibDems only got 11 seats!
01:48 - 01:52Yes, because the fucking voters are fucking racists!
01:53 - 01:54Worse than Nazis!
01:56 - 01:57Owen, you said your Guardian column
01:57 - 02:00would convince Leave voters to support us.
02:00 - 02:03Do none of these shits listen to Novara radio?
02:04 - 02:08Or read my New Statesman column?
02:08 - 02:13How can calling people fascists for three years not convince them to vote for us?
02:14 - 02:16We needed those fascists to support us
02:17 - 02:21to prevent a fascist takeover!
02:27 - 02:29I guess we underestimated
02:30 - 02:34the sheer stupidity of the masses.
02:34 - 02:36They just don't deserve Fully Automated Luxury Communism.
02:41 - 02:42Corbyn's fucked.
02:43 - 02:47Now we'll have a one-party racist state where gays and Muslims are rounded up and shot
02:48 - 02:53Katie Hopkins will be made home secretary
02:54 - 02:56Nick Griffin the fucking foreign minister
02:56 - 02:59and Tommy Robinson minister for equalities!
03:00 - 03:02Why didn't they listen to me? The tribune of the northern working class?
03:04 - 03:07Don't worry, the nurse will come to take him away soon.
03:14 - 03:16I suppose I could write another New Statesman column.
03:19 - 03:23Tell Labour what to do next.
03:25 - 03:26Give them the benefit of my wisdom.
03:31 - 03:33We can rebuild the left around me.
03:40 - 03:46We just need to cull the North, the Midlands and Wales.
03:46 - 03:49That way we can save them from fascism.
03:53 - 03:56Bring me my laptop.
