Leaving the wild interpretations aside, the YouGov polpls show that the results are within the margin of error. So the only honest response is that the poll is too close to call.

As with all polls, the figures are weighted to represent as best they can the wider population, rather than the people interviewed. It is not clear whether the weighting is based on the whole population or their prediction of how many will vote. However, looking at the age ranges most were barely weighted at all, but the youth vote was significantly weighted against. It is by no means clear this is a good representation.

People need to look at such things before leaping in with "what the polls show."

Well the telly "debate" was a bloody travesty. Nick Robinson (arch-Tory, former chairman of the Young Conservatives), allowed Johnson to get away with lie after blustering bullying lie, completely uninterrupted. An honest-to-goodness chair would have pulled him up every time he told an established lie, but he didn't do it even once. Corbyn made his case well but without the passion and spin that seems crucial in these populist times. The BBC, which I've always supported unstintingly, has behaved shambolically during this campaign. A bloody disgrace. As if we need a failure of neutrality when all the press big guns are as far right as they've ever been. Democracy in decline if we're not vigilant.

Donuel order order always utilizes sources that can be checked elsewhere. None of the lefties have been able to accuse him of lying. Much as they may wish to.

Labour of course has the damocles of antisemitism hanging over them.
The Jewish Labour Movement’s closing submission to the Equalities and Human Rights Commission has been leaked in full.

The conclusion – based on testimonies of 70 serving and former Labour party officials – damningly says “The Labour Party is no longer a safe space for Jewish people”.

100 additional testimonies from party members say they have suffered or witnessed antisemitism at party events. Labour were desperate to change the final election week’s narrative – this might make that difficult…

Corbynistas were approached this week with anti-Semitic quotes to see if they think the person who said them is fit for office. But there’s a twist! When the Labour activists were told the quotes were said by Boris they said he was unfit for office. Upon being told the truth their squirming is excruciating…

To this must be added the fact that momentum only tried to register with the electoral commission after being reported by Guido.
Back in Mar 6, 2019 - The Electoral Commission finds Momentum guilty of "multiple breaches", but the group says the fines levied are "disproportionate".(This was for offences committed during the last election in 207)

While there is no doubt the captioning was a problem, and that went viral, I doubt if it was intentional on the part of C4. It often happens that the captions that are automatically generated get it wrong and then have to be manually corrected. I have seen it many times: one of my favourites was when the presenter said "here are the latest borrowing figures" and the caption came up "Here are the latest boring figures." Mistakes like this happen when you are trying to do this automatically. This is a particularly unfortunate one and C4 corrected it and apologised quickly, but not quite quickly enough to stop those who want to capturing it and making complaints about it (and there may be different people in each group)

Channel 4 have been caught out smearing Boris – by mis-captioning his speech from yesterday and replacing the word ‘talent’ for ‘colour’. Is it any wonder the Tories are waging war with the propagandists…

Boris, speaking in Derbyshire, said he was “in favour of having people of talent come to this country”, however when Channel 4 uploaded the clip they claimed he said “people of colour” – listen for yourself above.

Boris uses the quote so often it could be considered his catchphrase (for example in this BBC interview), yet Channel 4 took it upon themselves to mislead thousands.

But the refunds required means the point at which it is economic to cancel the plane changes,

I am more than curious if anyone of you have done a 180 or changed their minds since the original Brexit vote??

Or even been nudged right or left??


That's a perfectly fair question. Donuel, but I can only answer for myself. I certainly haven't 180-ed. I doubt very many people do on any topic, but as you say it can happen. Those who do tend to be true zealots for whatever they have switched to, on the few occasions I have met them.

Have I moved further left? To some extent. I have voted for Conservatives in the past on a few occasions. Two that spring to mind: the local Tory MP was hard working and very involved in the local community. He really did his best to work for the constituency and I think that important. So I was happy to let him continue that in the next election. On another occasion I voted against my ward's Labour MP and for the person I thought most likely to defeat him (who was a fairly moderate tory). That MP was a rubber stamp: He voted on party lines 100% of the time and showed not one glimmer of independent thought. That is not how I think a constituency should be represented.

So imagine I was in that position today. Would I have voted for them? Most likely not. Not that my views of them would differ, but that the issue at stake is too great. And I am not just talking Brexit: I mean things like what is becoming known as the 'page 48' issue where the Conservatives appear to be trying to centralise all power in the Executive's hands, weakening Parliament, the courts, the Lords …

Am I far left? Definitely not by European wide standards I am very moderate. While nowhere is perfect, of course, I reckon the Scandinavian countries tend to do things a lot better than we do.

In so far as I am Tory, I am a one nation Tory. By which I mean when deciding whether to do something - support a factory for example - you look at the factory, and the businesses around it, and the impact on costs to the country of people becoming unemployed and so on, and assess the impact on the whole of the UK when making your decision. I contrast this with a mode of thought that asks if that factory is viable in its own right? If not, tough, and we will not think about any consequences for the rest of the country.


I can illustrate this with a discussion I had with Teribus some years back. Someone had mentioned EU airlines have to pay compensation to passengers if it is cancelled and he was strongly against this: it is up to the airline to consider its profitability and cancel or not in line with that. (As it happens, that is how it is done in many parts of the world.)

That is classic free market thinking, not One Nation.

A One Nation Tory says that for destinations apart from holiday makers, almost all the passengers on the plane are businessmen. And they are flying to conferences, to sales presentations, to trade shows and so on. And if they don't show, they are very likely to lose business. The trade show is on the Wednesday: there is no point showing up on the Thursday instead.

So the One Nation Tory says 'how do we share the risk?' And they do so by letting the airlines have a slightly higher fare so it includes a sort of insurance component to cover any refunds that arise. But the refunds required means the point at which it is economic to cancel the plane changes, so they are more likely to fly and these salesmen to get to the trade show and the UK gets more income. That's One Nation thinking.

I decided to sally forth into the Mail Online, the Express and others to see how they are treating the Andew Neil challenge to Mr Johnson. They do mention it, because I suppose they feel they have to, but they seem to have it as low down in the presentation as they can get away with. For example, one thinks a random Question Time audience member pointing out to a Labour panelist that there was a Brexit vote in 2016 is somehow a surprise to him, and so far more newsworthy. Another highlights Fiona Bruce challenging the SNP that the IFS thinks the Scotland might have more austerity if it votes for independence - as if they were not the strongest of supporters of another topic where some people feel that the risk of some austerity is worth it for greater independence.

Dianne Abbott was condemned by police last night for claiming that officers are using a ‘disproportionate level of force’ to arrest young black men.

- The son of Diane Abbott, the Shadow Home Secretary, has been arrested for biting a police officer on Whitehall on Friday.

Does she hoard the household scran for herself only?

From BBC: "Mr Raab suggested it would not be in the US's interests to hike prices if "you reduce the amount, the volume of purchases".


Utter and complete nonsense, of course. A company is interested in profit, not volume of sales. The whole luxury market exists and keeps its prices high precisely by restricting the volume of sales.   

Some markets run on scarcity pricing, some on the "stock 'em high, sell 'em cheap" principle. When you have a monopoly on something, and people's health can depend on your product, going for scarcity pricing can be tempting.

I should say I particularly liked the frame about it being a choice between a party that has not addressed anti-Semitism as quickly and thoroughly as it should, and one that has signed up all those who happily call themselves Nazis, since Farage effectively dropped out of the race.

Brilliant cartoon

In my opinion, of course.
