Election night drinking game 2017

Election night is upon us once again. I'll be on Twitter at @iainrobertsblog and @ElectionMorbo for as long as I can stay awake. It might not be too long, as I've been up since 6 am and will be travelling for much of the day, but we'll see.

I've composed an update to my 2015 drinking game. It's simple and not especially partisan. Play with the beverage of your choice: Wine, beer, tea, Ardbeg, lemonade, or whatever. I won't judge.
  • Sip:
    • "Strong and stable"
    • "Coalition of chaos"
    • "The many not the few"
    • Fringe candidate is wearing a ridiculous costume.
    • A seat is gained by one of the underdogs:
      • Labour
      • Liberal Democrats
      • Greens
      • Plaid Cymru
      • UKIP
  • Gulp:
    • Cabinet minister loses seat. (Unlikely given the opinion polls, but you never know.)
    • Shadow Cabinet minister loses seat.
  • Finish drink:
    • Candidate has epic meltdown on camera. You'll know it when you see it. The template is Peter Mandelson's "I'm a fighter, not a quitter" rant in 2001 (video below).
    • Theresa May announces her resignation as Prime Minister.
    • Jeremy Corbyn concedes the election to Theresa May.
Have fun, and see you on the other side.
