Wall expert Amy Patrick explains why the wall is "a disaster of numerous types waiting to happen."

And when that happens, good luck getting it fixed, because there aren’t that

Attorney General William Barr keeps on delivering for President Donald Trump.

"They tried to straddle both these camps because they wanted to try to keep some of these Leave seats but it just appears like they're just falling like dominoes.

"That strategy has totally failed, comprehensively failed and there will be a lot of soul-searching."

Workington will perhaps be the result that stings Labour the most

Sam Coates, deputy political editor

"The Conservatives are on course for a majority. Just look at the swing in the seat of Workington - Workington has been Labour since 1979, now there's been a swing from the Labour Party to the Conservatives in the region of 10%.

"The Tories now have around 50% of the vote in that seat, that's what the Labour Party got in that seat in the 2017 election.

The 2 articles of impeachment against President Trump explained – and what happens next

  The 2 articles of impeachment against President Trump explained – and what happens next The House Judiciary Committee is expected to vote on the articles separately this week. Those approved will be forwarded to the Senate for a trial.The articles – abuse of power and obstruction of Congress – are charges of wrongdoing that detail specific assertions of how the President violated the US Constitution as well as the oath of his office.

He picked a few hundred political experts - people who made their living “ commenting or offering advice on political and economic trends” - and began asking them to make predictions about future events. He had a long list of pertinent questions. Would George Bush be re-elected?

It is clear that his narrow racial tribalism and myopic political neoliberalism has no place for keeping track of Wall Street greed, US imperial crimes or black elite indifference to poverty. For example, there is no serious attention to the plight of the most vulnerable in our community

"If we look at another result, Ian Lavery, chairman of the Labour Party, there were rumours he might even lose his seat.

"He has hung on but only by the slimmest of margins in Wansbeck - there his majority has gone down from 10,000 to 814.

"A swing in the region of about 8% from Labour to the Conservatives.

"Ian Lavery will be glad to have hung on but that kind of decline in his seat will sting. Whether it means he won't run for the deputy leadership remains to be seen."

The political geography of the UK is changing

Ed Conway, economics editor

"It certainly feels like the political geography is changing in this country.

"A lot of candidates are facing shock results. Durham Northwest - Laura Pidcock, some people saying she could be a future Labour leader, she may lose her seat - it's too close to call at the moment.

"Stoke-on-Trent North, that's been Labour since 1950 - that looks very vulnerable.

"Is the Brexit Party picking up Labour votes, but not off the Tory party, allowing the party to get in there?

"In seat after seat in the North East we're seeing that with the Brexit Party and allowing the Tories to win.
