    It's a shocking indictment of the state of the opposition if anywhere near accurate.

    Still amazes me that anyone at all would vote for these clowns.

    As the quote says that poll predicted a hung parliament before the last election when all the others were predicting a Tory win.

    Could you imagine having a drink and a chat with the likes of May or Corbyn? No, in different ways, they’re not like normal people and not relatable at all.
    Both for the watching.

    Why do I need to have a drink with them? I dont want to have a drink with them, nor do i want to relate to them, i want them to be credible and make the right decisions based on facts and data.

    Sometimes those decisions may not be ones we can "relate" to but thats what makes their jobs difficult

    I mean ultimately you could probably go down the pub with Farage and have a whale of a time. I couldnt as i'm brown tho.

    Strange for a Daily Mail reader to be a fan of facts.

    I’m trying to suggest that emotionless robots and miserable , soulless fanatic are hard to trust as they are on a different planet.
    People like Caroline Lucas for example, seems to understand the normal world a lot better.

    Do you ever find the most hateful bigoted women on twitter are always the ones who put "Wife and proud Mother of two" or some other shit as if its a disclaimer saying "I'm entitled to be a vile cunt because I squeezed a couple of humans out of my vagina."

    It's e general trope for rightwing people on Twitter. They're always 'proud' - husband, father, wife, small business owner, ex-arms forces etc.

    The notions of 'pride' and nationalism, ring-wingism and thus xenophobia, racism etc are all very much intertwined.

    You could probably a trust an emotionless robot more because they'll deal in facts as opposed to feelings. They won't give you a shit about you though.

    I'm waiting to see someone write 'apathetic mother/father of 2'.

    Here's some news to cheer everyone up:

    Theresa May would gain seats and win a tiny majority if there were a general election now, according to a YouGov poll and analysis for the Times. The findings probably deserve more attention than conventional surveys because this is not a standard poll. Instead, YouGov polled more than 40,000 adults and then used a system called multilevel regression and post-stratification (MRP) to predict results for all seats in Britain, based on constituency demographics. A YouGov MRP analysis before the 2017 correctly predicted a hung parliament when almost all conventional polling suggested the Tories were going to win.
    this poll is probably p accurate and is probably p good news for labour i.e. they’re still within spitting distance in a period out with purdah when the only show in town is brexit. the same engine had a conservative majority of 80 before the last election and that narrowed to a prediction of a hung parliament as the campaign unfolded. in a new campaign - with labour starting on an almost level footing, they’d stand a v good chance of winning a majority

    couple of big caveats:
    - no one really knows what’s going on in scotland I don’t think. no ones been accurately taking the political weather

    - labour’s performance at the next GE is HEAVILY contingent on how brexit breaks (as is the tories’ performance ofc)

    How can you take the nanosecond it takes to capitalise "GE", but not "P"?

    I like to hear your point of view but, fuck, the grammar makes me not want to bother.

    Confirmation to me that May plans her meaningful vote on Brexit in March just days before exit day.

    NO DEAL IS BETTER THAN A BAD DEAL, MY DEAL IS BETTER THAN A NO DEAL.

    MY DEAL IS A BAD DEAL... ERROR.

    Fuck it, I'm going to get a bunch of non-perishable foods this weekend.

    she’s moved recently to parroting “the way to avoid no deal is to pass a deal” nicely positioning labour, juncker etc as wreckers unwilling to compromise.
