    Normalising the far right. What could possibly go wrong?

    I'm shocked to see that Reform's "manifesto" is an incoherent mess of massive unfunded tax cuts, with the mythical "cuts to government waste" and scrapping Net Zero being the main areas they will generate the £70bn needed (over 50% more than Truss wanted).

    Farage really doesn't like it when he can't set the agenda. Describing him as "tetchy" would be doing him a favour.

    They are not a serious political party for office. Their manifesto is the biggest load of nonsense written.

    Along similar lines, my local Tory MP (who I think has a chance of retaining, or at least significantly outperforming the national swing) is door knocking in the most affluent areas of town - areas where they never normally see Tory MPs. Knocked on my Aunt's door and was told she's voting Labour so promptly turned around and left without so much as a "thank you for time".

    "deliver the benefits of brexit" - it's definitely about time Brexit started yielding benefits, given its track record so far.

    Big IPSOS MRP poll dropped. Interesting that it has Reform down from most others at 12% and the Greens taking three seats.

    Labour - 453
    Tory - 115
    Libs - 38
    SNP - 15
    Plaid - 4
    Green - 3
    Reform - 3

    Farage is a lot more unpopular that the media let on.

    WELP!


    A new Telegraph survey finds Rishi Sunak is likely to become the first sitting British prime minister ever to lose their seat.

    The poll also shows his party on track to slump to 53 seats, with around three-quarters of his Cabinet also voted out.

    New York Times: “Polls suggest there is a desire to eject the governing Conservative Party from Downing Street, after 14 years, in next month’s general election. But lawmakers in the opposition Labour Party have already warned that — should they win — they will inherit a hobbled economy with little room for bold changes.”

    3 mrp polls out today. In every single one of them, The Tories are in a worse position now than they were in the previous 3 with these polling companies.







    The way things are going at the moment 1997 landslide is the best the tories can hope for. So many safe Tory seats on a knife edge means anything from 50 seats to 150 seats.
     
  23. Are UK voters suffering from a bi-polar disorder?
    Normal people go from conservatives to something that looks familiar, like liberals. Not to the opposite being the socialists.

    The FPTP voting system generally leaves a binary choice, and we've only had Labour or Tory governments for over a century.
    Starmer has also done everything he can to position Labour as a centrist party with some left leanings rather than a traditional socialist party. Attempting to win by occupying the centre ground as the Tories lurch to the right, so the moderate Tories feel they can support them.
