Channel 4 did a focus group with Leave voters in Birmingham who voted Labour last time to see if they could be persuaded to vote Tory. All said they were considering it.


Also, Tories nervous about what Trump will say about the NHS while at the NATO summit this week in the UK. Corbyn has sent him a letter asking him to promise not to look for the sale of the NHS.

Increasing whiff of desperation.

Boris Johnson made claims that children of working mothers in low-income families were “unloved and undisciplined” and more likely to “mug you on the street corner”, it has emerged.

In a 2006 collection of journalism, entitled Have I Got Views for You, Johnson bemoaned the increasing tendency of women to work, saying they had been “socially gestapoed into the workplace”.
Britain's working class can feel cozy and secure this Christmas with such an enlightened man in Downing Street who clearly has their interests at heart, and whose talents even extend to the creation of a new verb out of the name for the former Nazi secret police. :)

Congress voted Unanimously yesterday to keep on supporting the Good Friday agreement so it does not matter if Boris or trump wants to carve the agreement up- the big boys / girls won’t let them-

This you thought you'd slip in.

Here he is saying the opposite:


Do you think he knows when he's lying?
You must be the last person who bothers to fact check him on SM, which is not the place for facts anyway. :)

The Poll thing has been a hoot.

Remind me, is this site in favour of polls or not?

I mean cos we all have our fingers on the British pulse. :)

42% should give the Tories a comfortable Majority

- hard to see it being anything other than some 40 seats over the line on those figures.
A 10% lead for the Tories mightnt yield as many seats as a 10% lead for Labour. During the 13 yrs of Labour govt in 1997-2010, the boundary changes favoured Labour, particularly in 2005 when Labour won 55% of the seats on 36% of the vote.
