    There should be no argument at this point.

    If you want the government to concentrate wealth, carve up the nation’s services and protect your own personal empire then it’s the Tories.

    If you want to reverse the sickening downward slog of free-market economics, support the struggling, and give the country a direction and a chance then it’s…[Read more]

    Opinium have a very different poll

    No movement at all for any party in well over a week?

    Balls I say.

    So in the super Brexity area where I live my mum works in carpet shop and a customer came in this morning and said the cash machine isn’t working because the Polish are drawing too much money out.

    That is what connects Boris to the electorate. That stupid, illogical, racist mindset.

    When “moral compass” includes reportedly retweeting entirely false child sex abuse allegations about someone and then naming them on Twitter.

    Yep. He admits that was stupid.

    Get Brexit done solved everything. Everything. Tampons etc.

    Monbiot has written some great stuff.

    I don’t agree with everything he says but he’s one of the decent journalists/authors.

    A look at the newspaper headlines -every day- would tell you Labour is up against it.

    For sure – we all accept that.

    None of this translates to Binner’s suggestion that the Labour campaign is wonky.

    +1 My constituency’s the same. Conventioal wisdom says it should go one way, all the evidence I’m seeing (and there’s a fair bit) is that it’s going a completely different way.

    What are the particulars – out of curiosity?

  • rone replied to the topic 2019 General Election in the forum Chat Forum 2 days ago

    They are as good an indication as any of how successful the campaign has been so far.

    Alright so the fact the gaps have close over the last few weeks would indicate a positive direction?

  • rone replied to the topic 2019 General Election in the forum Chat Forum 2 days ago

    The polls seem to show that most people are watching the same one as me

    They’re polls – they reflect people’s perception plus possibly out-moded weighting – they’re not a critique on how good a campaign is.

    The trouble is people queue up to reward Boris Johnson’s bad behaviour. That’s the rub. People actively go for his lies. Corbyn could walk on water – but you ain’t doing battle with that irratiaonal logic.

  • rone replied to the topic 2019 General Election in the forum Chat Forum 2 days ago

    The continued half-arsed incoherence of the Labour campaign and how easy a ride its giving Johnson is utterly depressing to witness

    And they should do what?

  • rone replied to the topic 2019 General Election in the forum Chat Forum 2 days ago

    Ipsos Mori is one of the most extreme with 16pt Tory lead last poll.

    They also polled people’s thoughts on who was having the best campaign – Tories by far – apparently.

    More poll analysis.

  • rone replied to the topic 2019 General Election in the forum Chat Forum 4 days ago

    If the EU is neo liberal, they are the most incompetent neo liberals on the face of the Earth. Workers protections, environmental legislation, policies which promote family life, subsidised sectors of the economy are all hardly neo liberal policies. Which is basically what the EU spends half it’s time doing.

    Well that because it’s not wholly N…[Read more]

    Anyway I’ve googled and I can’t find anything that suggests the EU is anything other than Neo-Liberal, and not remotely socialist.

    Completely correct. It’s also the trajectory of it. It’s not what it was.

    It is worth remembering that neoliberalism is a type of capitalism – so there are elements of the EU that are certainly all about mar…[Read more]
