    Well, thereís the rub. His inaction, and by extension tacit approval of these views, is now propagating them.

    It feels like at some point, consciously or not, a decision was made at the top of the party that loyalty to a core within his base who tend toward the conspiratorial (and into the antisemitic) is more important to the Corbyn leadership project than hearing and addressing the concerns of British Jews

    Yet isnít the irony of this that in Raabís own constituency he is on the cusp of being ousted by the Lib Dems (with Labour way out in third)?

    What should Labourís advice be to their voters in that particular seat? It is not realistically winnable, so a vote for Labour is likely to return Raab, whereas a tactical vote could see him sent packing.

    I'd totally vote labour if I lived in Iain Duncan Smith's seat.

    He's the king of the shitbeasts.

    We donít live in the timeline where Redwood, Raab and Johnson lose their seats. We live in the one where they get an even bigger majority.

    Lib Dems suspend campaigner after apparent email forgery.

    Watching this morning's interviews Sturgeon really looks so much more capable and comfortable than any of the other leaders, doesn't she?

    This! Remember this and hold your noses to vote for Labour or the Lib Dems (whoever is closest to beating the Conservatives in your seat).

    Yep, isnít perfect but is well informed, communicates well, tries to answer questions properly and appears genuine and might actually be a morally decent person .

    Basically sheís what any leader should be but the standards of the rest are utterly appalling.

    Yeah letís all hope the least racist party turn out to be racist so we can feel better about voting Labour.

    Labour members and supporters going after the Lib Dems in this election is one of the most retarded strategies I've seen in a few elections.

    @General_Martok because it's totally not a 2 way thing. They both need to stop it, its pointless and stupid.

    It is a 2 way thing but Labour is FAR bigger and should be focusing it's efforts from keeping the Torries out of it's seats and attacking the few Tory seats they have a chance of winning.

    Honestly I havenít really noticed the Tories sniping at the LDs, neither the party nor the supporters, but perhaps itís just because I donít pay much attention to them.

    Certainly feels like Labour are much more directly doing this.

    Tories generally snipe LD by way of Labour - a vote for them is a vote for a Corbyn government etc. That and Brexit, but that's less sniping and more of a blunderbuss.
