There is only one message to the British people: you are wise, undaunted and quite magnificent
Well I have to admit it. I burst into tears. The people of Britain have spoken - the real people. Not the social media trolls or the Twitter addicts or that whole parallel universe of ghosts who seemed - to the credulous - to be what politics was about now, but the grown-up, decent, rational people of this country who have once again asserted their right to be heard.
And because Boris Johnson insisted that this was a Brexit election - with that endlessly repeated mantra about “getting Brexit done” - this was more than an election: it was a second referendum too.
So that’s the end of that.
What this must mean is that the Red Wall has well and truly collapsed. Labour has lost its birthright to the working class vote.
But the size of the majority must also mean that many, many Remainers did the gracious thing and admitted that in a democracy, the minority must honour the will of the majority.
They chose the fair and proper path. To them, we must give proper respect and thanks. We will only know later how the demographics worked.
Was there really a generational divide as we had been promised? Or have we just been suffering an avalanche of noise from a small minority of activists?
Where does Labour go from this ignominious moment? It will have to rebuild from scratch, from the ground up - to create a whole new possibility of Opposition. But for tonight there is only one message to the British people
