    @TheSaint I have read that doesn't work as they just refuse to receive it.

    Nah, Labour will vote against it.
    It'll be interesting to see how their talks with the Tories go.

    The European election leaflet I received at home today Labour are promising to deliver Brexit (and put 10,000 new bobbies on the beat?!)
    Nowhere, it's all a charade imo.

    I can't recall the last European Election but had a flood of mailers in this week.

    Definitely targeted, it would be interesting to see what information is available and how they base their decision on who gets a leaflet.

    I don't really know what to think, if Trump can do it I guess this twat could as well.

    It's almost guaranteed going by the quality of our electorate.

    They've really managed to make the worst of the opportunities they've had, haven't they?

    They could well still find themselves in power as part of a coalition. Iím sure that was always the plan.

    Meh they stood up for something they believed in. In the current shithole of British politics that's actually commendable in my books.

    They are definitely making mistakes but so is everyone else.

    Yes but they are ex labour so the momentum lot are going to pick on everything they say and do and make sure you know how incompetent they are whilst holding their fingers to their ears screaming LALALALA when you try to explain why they left.

    That they had any opportunities at all was a colossal myth of their own making.

    I agree with this in principle but it falls over when it comes to then believing in anything other than their own importance.

    I think there was a place in the debate for them but the Lib Dems and Greens have taken back with effective campaigning and by not being twats about it.

    As well as doing it poorly I'm not sure Change ever had a real plan for where they saw themselves six months down the line. It was all a protest against their immediate circumstances.

    Whatever the merits of TIG the shitshow of an electoral system precludes anything new breaking through. It just embalms the corpses of Labour and the Tories.

    They are still a more worthwhile vote next Thursday than the Tories or Labour.

    You're completely right about Change UK being an utter joke. They've bungled pretty much everything at every step and won't exist as a party before long.

    And I'd still vote for them over labour.

    As is your prerogative! And I fully understand why you wouldn't vote for Labour, although I'd your consider the Green Party over CUKTIG.
