RBin Corden, 42, an account manager for a flooring company, brought out a banner for the Tiverton and Honiton voter count saying: “The party is over prime minister.”
He told the Press Association: “I think the greased piglet who is our prime minister was very happy to have the vote of confidence before the two elections here and in Wakefield.
“Many other bench parliamentarians would have voted without confidence if they had witnessed the electoral annihilation that took place today.”
Corden added: “Boris Johnson grew up not far from here in Winsford (Somerset), we in Exe Valley, which has such beautiful orchards, are ashamed to have produced such a rotten apple.”
When asked if he believed the Conservatives had truly suffered “annihilation”, Corden replied, “I hope so, I’m green and I voted tactically.”
He continued, “I decided I couldn’t live with myself if I woke up tomorrow morning and the Conservatives had won by a very narrow margin, so I abandoned my political loyalties to send a message to the Conservatives that their days are numbered.”
