Re: The Labour Party: Where Next?

UKIP aren't the biggest losers in terms of seats, though, going by this graph I saw on Facebook (posted by a Lib Dem supporter): Though I presume you mean in percentage terms. Yeah I did mean %s, where UKIP are down 6.4%, compared to the Lib Dems who are up over 9%, Labour and Conservatives down ro...

Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

I'll remind everyone at this point that I was banned because I said Top Gear was "no place for a woman." Personal bias clearly got in the way. Or perhaps it was your casual sexism. Yes, I think it was that. Given that comment I'd say overt rather than casual, but the point still stands.

Re: The Labour Party: Where Next?

What Momentum who have infiltrated the Labour Party fail to realise is that Corbyn is not PM material and need to attract floating voters who tend to vote Conservative, which is how Tony Blair got into power. Labour's core northern vote could be eroded to UKIP and they've lost Scotland to the SNP w...

Re: The Labour Party: Where Next?

It's like reading a comment piece in the Daily Wail! Ah that catch all comeback for any attack on the left. It's like how socialists like to point out the Mail's support of the Nazi party, not understanding that it's a German abbreviation for, er, National Socialism. I don't read the Mail because i...

Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

I know this would probably be better on TVF, but it is in connection to the ITN/The Day Today links which got locked on TVF and it is hardly worth starting a thread about - but if anyone is interested some of the stings from the pilot episode (the ones which don't use The Day Today motif) are actual...

Re: The next big leader?

This is a man who has no real support other than students Actually if you look at the polling he has a greater %age support among 25-49 year olds than he does amongst 18-24 year olds. In fact in the latest YouGov Labour membership poll when asked whether they though he was doing well as a leader 60...

Re: The BIG MetroPoll - IN or OUT ?

I think if the result is a decisive leave, BoJo will have competition for the leadership from Pritti Patel. And she'll win. Just can't see Boris in Number 10, at all. Oh please. Boris has more gravitas than that airhead Patel in his little finger. Nothing to do with gravitas. She's fast becoming th...

Re: The BIG MetroPoll - IN or OUT ?

Both campaigns are Tory lead, both are hopeless and full of fear. They've got to be irreparably damaged after this. A lot of irreparable damage no matter the outcome will be to the Conservative party. What began as a throwaway attempt to quell a backbench rebellion and keep Conservatives united cou...

Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

Does cityprod have an opinion as to which political party out of the ones coveting him Winston Churchill would belong to? Tories, UKIP, BF or BNP? Winston Churchill probably wouldn't belong to any of those parties now, as he would be too moderate for them. He'd probably be a Liberal Democrat these ...

Re: The BIG MetroPoll - IN or OUT ?

The polls, as usual, disagree with each other on the result and the precise figures. The latest TNS poll shows a lead for Leave; the latest ComRes poll shows a lead for Remain. That isn't even the most inconclusive polling - ICM conducted online and phone polls using the same methodology and the ph...

Re: Independent newspaper closes down

Out of interest, have the Guardian's readership figures received a boost since the Indie shut down? I'd imagine it'd be the second home for many Indies readers and the Indie closing was definitely something the Guardian have been wishing for given their own ever decreasing readership.
