Re: There an election this year.....

What I find odd is the suggestion that reform's vote share is somehow surprising. It's the same UKIP got in 2015 when they came second in several places, before said vote being reabsorbed into the Tory fold, before reappearing this year. If anything all it shows if they've been more efficient with ...

Re: There an election this year.....

Indeed The Sun have endorsed Labour at the 11th hour. I wonder how long that front page has been waiting in the wings for 'Time for a new manager (and we don't mean sack Southgate' reads awfully like the big sports news is supposed to be England out of the Euros, but we're still (somehow) in them. ...

Re: There an election this year.....

From the constituency I'm in it's been confirmed a vote held at the first hustings was rigged.

Re: There an election this year.....

The reform supporters on social media are some of the strangest people. I've actually been blocked by either the local reform candidate or party on Facebook. My crime? Responding to their posts on local fb groups (which I'm a longer term member of) with mildly challenging questions and their polici...

Re: There an election this year.....

I 've managed to speak with some of the local activists, I have to be fair to all party's plus you get an insight into what they are believing. All I can say for the SNP ones are they need to loses and they need to have a good long hard look at themselves, there living in a bubble. "Nicola stu...

Re: There an election this year.....

In my local constituency the Labour candidate is the only candidate who doesn't live locally. She lives in London, so was seemingly parachuted in, apparently to the displeasure of the local Labour Party. At the first local hustings the Reform candidate didn't show up. The hustings poll indicated tha...

Re: There an election this year.....

D Day has got to be Sunak's "bigoted woman" moment right? An absolutely extraordinary own goal of monumental proportions. That image of Cameron with three actual current world leaders is quite something. There's four more weeks but surely, surely it can't get worse than this?! I dare say ...

Re: There an election this year.....

The summary of the election debate...
- Rishi: "It'll be a disaster if Labour run the country, you don't want to risk it."
- Keir: "You've had 14 years and Liz Truss was the last PM before you."
- Both: "I can talk over you and won't stop when I'm asked to."

Re: There an election this year.....

Conservatives as the 4th party behind Lib Dems and Alba. That'd be weird, for example. I think that's highly unlikely to happen, in part due to the first past the post electoral system. As the alternative vote referendum back in 2011 was two thirds against using the AV system I can't see it being r...

Re: Old supermarket signage

My local Waitrose has a somewhat dated frontage, and it's logo hasn't been updated to include "And Partners". https://www.google.com/maps/@52.2285103,-0.2706918,3a,75y,69.47h,87.01t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sjj4qqkRMzAM7pjXNsAzNNA!2e0!7i16384!8i8192?entry=ttu It also has the slightly odd situati...
