13 Nov

Boris’s Party Political Broadcast yesterday included a couple of light-hearted questions, including whether he likes Marmite and whether he prefers fish and chips or a Sunday roast.

Angela Smith Boasts of Impending Election Defeat

1 Nov

Former-Labour MP, turned-TIG, turned-Change UK, turned-‘the Independents’, turned-Lib Dem MP, Angela Smith is carpetbagging from Yorkshire to Graham Brady’s Manchester seat, where the Lib Dems finished over 20,000 votes shy of the Tories in 2017. She’s really relying on tactical voting to win… Smith has just proudly posted on Twitter that if remainers vote tactically, the […]

Where Should the Brexit Party Target?

31 Oct

Today’s Financial Times splash focuses on rumours that the Brexit Party is preparing not to stand in hundreds of constituencies.

Tories Start 16% Ahead, Curtice Gives Stark Warning

30 Oct

The Tories start the election campaign with a 16 point lead over Labour, who in-turn will find solace from being 9% clear of the Lib Dems.

Leave Beat the SNP in Half of Their Westminster Seats

10 Sep

The SNP love going on about how more Remain votes than Leave votes came from Scotland in the United Kingdom’s EU referendum. They don’t like mentioning that more than a million Scots voted to leave, or the fact that if you disregard the Leave votes from Scotland and Northern Ireland, Remain would have won. Guido […]

9 Sep

New Opinium approval ratings for party leaders has shown that Lib Dem leader Jo Swinson is 8% higher than Corbyn… among Labour’s 2017 voters.  The news of this reality was responded to by utter disbelief by members of the Absolute Boy’s Fan club, naturally.
