As whoever has now bought that site, what I would suggest is replacing by a very sparse page saying "This is NOT the Conservative manifesto site. It was created as a reaction to the Conservatives creating a false Labour site, to show how easy it is to spread false information.

The actual Conservative manifesto has not yet been released. When it is, we will link to it from here."

The Beattie advertisement is worth thinking about. It was paid for by Mainstream, which is lead by Ian Austin, which claims to be "The campaign against extremism."

But what, supposedly, was the final straw for Beattie? Antisemitism? No. She talks about that, but it was not the final straw. Other racism? No, that's not even mentioned.

So what does Mainstream, in the guise of Beattie, regard as the final straw?

"... getting his allotment hands on my broadband ... he wants to take it away and ruin it."

Is that really the final straw for "The campaign against extremism"? Really? That is what pushed you over the edge?

Apparently Farage is claiming the Brexit party would introduce a “citizens’ initiative”, triggering a referendum if 5 million people sign a valid register calling for a public vote on a particular issue.

What was that about a never ending referendum on Brexit? I am sure remainers can find 5m, and then whoever wins the other side can find 5m, and again, and again ...

Even the odd spot of levity (a bit more of that from him would be good). Nicola wasn't closing any doors either. The audience made mincemeat of the shallow Swinson and tore Johnson to pieces.

I’m pretty much with Steve - except that, for me, Nicola Sturgeon was the most impressive, answering every question intelligently and in terms that everyone could understand, with JC a close seecond. Jo Swinson was a car-crash, and Johnson was, as you would expect, all bluster, lies, catch-phrases, wind and piss.

I shouldn't think Newsnight will be better, with Emma Barnet, who I find an exceptionally poor interviewer (sorry: presenter. Newsnight doesn't call them interviewers.)

This is not a matter of agreeing with her or not: I don't agree with Andrew Neil much, but his is a far more capable interviewer.

Gosh, yes, Emma has a message all right. I agree with BWM's analysis. I think that there's the germ of a progressive alliance there between Nicola and Jeremy. They are prowling around each other a bit at present but in the event of a hung parliament, which is the best I can hope for, I think that realpolitik will kick in.

One thing's for sure. Jo Swinson is doomed.

I think I must have watched a different program. Magic grandad still cannot say if he is coming or going. His previous supporters can see straight through his policies and are scattering like chaff in the wind to find safety and solace in the Tory party

It is the mark of the man and a measure of his astounding insensitivity or political naivety that he launches his manifesto in Birmingham on the 45th anniversary of the IRA bombing that killed 21 and injured 182 people. He and his cabal have some very dodgy political affiliations and people will not like having their noses rubbed in it by his grandstanding above. Shame on the man!

Let's remind you about the post I made on the 21st November:


The EU is "open to" Labour's Brexit policy of renegotiating the Brexit agreement to include a customs union and single market membership, Leo Varadkar has said.

Asked about the Labour manifesto the Irish leader told public broadcaster RTE that the bloc would be "very happy" with sitting down with "whoever is prime minister" and that the opposition's policy would not be a problem.


Emma and others can argue until they are blue in the face - what a fortunate alignment between cliché and stance - that the EU will not try to negotiate a deal unless Corbyn says he would support leave or remain, rather than be avowedly neutral, but she can only do so by ignoring what they have already said.

I was pleased to see the Labour manifesto promises to allow the Chagos Islanders to return home.

And I'd be getting back my free TV licence.

And four new bank holidays, one for St George, one for St Patrick, one for St Andrew and one for St David.

Lot of good stuff there in the details.

I think Jo Stimson has blown it completely. What made her performance look even worse was that it came after Nicola Sturgeon's master class.
..............
I am puzzled by the suggestion that the EU would be the least worried by the thought that Jeremy Corbyn would not be campaigning to encourage people to back a deal he had negotiated. All the evidence I've seen is that they would see a referendum outcome for Britain to remain in the EU as far preferable to any deal for its leaving.

I agree, MacGrath. And it is worth looking at the other outcome as well. Both the EU and Labour understand that the result of a second referendum is not a foregone conclusion: Leave might win. So it is in both their interests to agree the best deal they can in case they have to implement it. The only thing that is ruled out is the hardest of Brexits, but since that is not what Labour would be arguing for, and is not what the EU want, that is not really a limitation.

And of course, a soft Brexit is 100% compatible with what the famed 17.4m voted for.

631 Conservative Candidates have today written a letter to their Labour opponent asking them to clarify their own personal positions on crucial issues at the election. An important tactic given Corbyn’s indecision…

The letters ask Labour candidates to outline:

    Their Brexit position
    Whether they’ll also remain neutral during a second referendum
    Whether they want a Scottish Independence referendum

The letter claims their position as Corbyn’s candidate “needs urgent clarification to help local people make their choice”

No doubt in a few more weeks we will discover what the electorate thinks of all the posturing. But a confused message from labour will simple continue to haemorrhage former supporters to more worthy causes.

It seems Johnson has raised the question whether New Zealand is closer to China than Wales. That is be no means as straightforward as you might think. By air it may well be closer. But the most likely common product in which Wales and New Zealand compete is lamb, and that is typically sent by ship, not air. Which means the ships either have to go through the Panama, which is expensive, or round South America, which is expensive and takes a long time. Either puts Wales at a competitive disadvantage.

The vote in 2016 was on the form of words on the ballot - to leave the EU or not. Nothing about any of the other things peole might have had in their heads that led them to vote either way. Nothing about immigration or single market or customs unions.

Talk about what degree of "hardness" is or is not compatible with "Bexit" is irrelevant. We didn't vote about "Brexit', just on leaving the EU, which is a political structure that has only existed since the Maastricht Treaty, long after we'd been linked into what became the EU. So it's quite right to say that the "softest" departure from the polittical structure of EU, without disturbing Any of the other links we have built up with its members, is perfectly compatible with the referendum result.
...........

If I'd had any difficulty in deciding which way to vote, the promise in the Labour Manifesto to give so long delayed justice to the Chagos Islanders would swing it for me.
If the name doesn't ring a bell, read this summary of the snameful episode. And of its if anything more shameful sequel, lasting till today.

Perhaps, instead of getting his knickers in a twist about a few people’s hurt feelings, he should be directing his bile at those who allowed the Grenfell Tower to be clad in highly-inflammable materials, or whose austerity has caused an estimated 120,000 unnecessary deaths during their term in office.

it is not really about whether Corbyn is fit to be leader. It is, given the choice between Corbyn and Johnson, which is better.

in Johnson, we have a man who has resisted all attempts to constrain his power, and has written into his manifesto that he wants to reduce the power of the Lords, the courts and individual citizens to hold him to account, and in many cases move powers from Parliament his personally appointed ministers.

Were I Jewish, I would find that a cause for concern.

It isn't just the far-right chief rabbi. Justin Welby has joined the chorus, as has Julia Neuberger and a senior rabbi in Maidenhead (who has written to all 823 families in his congregation asking them to vote against Labour whatever they do).

There is something very unpleasant going on here when people of religion appear to be ganging up in a very partial way during an election campaign against the one party that is actually being seen to be tackling a discrimination problem within its ranks. There are over half a million of us and the finger of antisemitism has been pointed at fewer than one tenth of one percent of us. I don't think Labour should respond to this by indulging in mudslinging whataboutery, but let me just say that it would be good if these prayerful Tory hypocrites would pause to reflect on the fact that, by dissing Labour (specifically Corbyn, again whom it seems that any smear will do), they are heightening the chances of the country being led by an incompetent serial liar and Trumpist who is at the top of a party riddled with racism and Islamophobia. Attacking the one and not the other in an election campaign is an abuse of their platforms (don't get me started on that...) and it certainly goes against the supposed word of the God they love to invoke.

Magic grandad is a thoroughly nasty piece of work unsuited to high office. He leads a party undergoing an official enquiry into antisemitism,
He encourages candidates such as:
Labour’s Ruislip, Northwood and Pinner candidate Peymana Assad is in hot water after social media posts surfaced of her saying she would “100% take up arms against the [Afghan] government and its allies” which at the time included the US and the UK. Now Jewish people are questioning an oddly worded tweet from Peymana, which talks about a “10 lost tribes of Israel joke” and a man who “got gassed”.
She has now deleted her Facebook account, you have to wonder why?

I am not sure if the Conservatives will find this a helpful intervention by the Rabbi and the Archbishop. Their core strategy is to keep an intense focus on Brexit and this diverts attention away from it. If that is not enough the Muslim community has used to comment on the Tories' weakness on Islamophobia. Then some, like Lord Dobbs, are saying that the Rabbi has gone too far. It all distracts from the only thing Johnson's team really want to talk about.

Call him a backwoodsman if you wish, Steve! FWIW, I wear the epithet, ‘Backwoodsman’, as a Badge of Honour after one of the vilest, nastiest people ever to infect this forum used it in a failed attempt to insult and provoke me. I actually live in a very nice, very civilised part of the country!

In the meantime, and back to the real issues of the election, here’s Emily Maitlis speaking the truth about the ‘Get Brexit Done’ horse-shit.

And I hate to say it, but I have a feeling that the great British public aren't as interested in antisemitism as some of Corbyn's detractors would like to believe. Anyway, Labour should continue to go high. Obviously, the biggest potential Tory weakness is the obnoxious character of their leader and that needs to be a focus. Apart from that Labour must emphasise how they are going to right the wrongs of the last ten years. Plenty of meat on that bone...

Barefaced lie about "50,000 nurses" duly noted...
