Just popping in to say, I can't bear to think about this, it's got to such a pitch now, the old politics, that I'm glad today's a hard day, work-wise.  OMFG, I hope every little thing's going to be alright.

Shame neither he nor Ash appear to realise the pogo stick story was written as a satire on the constant baseless criticism of him. I guess it's because the support was from such an unlikely source.

They previously ran a similar story about Ed Miliband's father killing a kitten by running over it on his bike. Ed seems to have taken it in good humour.

Oh, that sounds familiar. Memory like a sieve. No wonder they can get away with repeating themselves. Their paper is aimed at people of my age.

To be fair, Corbyn thought it was amusing. He just didn't seem to realise it was satire. However, I might have misunderstood his tone in this instance.

Interesting interview- particularly the stuff about Corbyn’s early days. Beats trashing a restaurant.

This is it. If we had a media landscape that allowed the pros and cons of our politicians to be laid out clearly next to each other, it would be obvious to all and sundry who to back.

That would be more applicable to the Irish republican smears.  J McD dodged the AS allegations largely because he came out against Corbyn (in a way) and didn't fall for the trap.  All that happened again here is a silly interview with Campbell who was hoping that J McD would say Corbyn would stay on after defeat and therefore show how undemocratic and dictatoresque Corbyn is, then when this failed he asked about him, as he could then he could be Corbyn's Brutus, which he sidestepped again by not being in the running either.

So Cambell then span it another way...........that Corbyn is standing down after the election coz he's ad enough and he should go now before anyway.

Spin, spin, spin it is called that because it is reactive to what is said, it makes lies or mistruths off the cuff as the information comes in.  It is an angle, a frame attached to what someone actually says to change its meaning or push a narrative that you are 'spinning' to.

Spinning allows the magician to do his act right in front of your eyes so you are more likely to believe it is real.

Interestingly, McDonnell says in the following interview that the bit in that interview where he said Labour are going to win the election wasn't included in the clips and the reports:

Except they would definitely put “is anti Semitic” in the cons column of Corbyn because they are cunts.

Cleaner at work discussion "I'm a floating voter" (this after a discussion on worst toilet scenarios. "Voted conservative, labour, Lib Dem and...errr...spoiled ballot"

"Last time I voted for Labour. I watched all the leader's speeches and the conservative manifesto was rubbish. The worst I can remember so I voted labour. Although under the conservatives my salary has gone up and I don't pay tax now". On Corbyn "they are all liars, that is why I'm voting labour". On the future "South Africa is going to go up in smoke, just watch the news. I don't look at the news, but if you do, watch it."

Don't know what to make of that.

Me: "I have to go to the bogs now"

Cleaner: "Good luck with that" *glint in eye*

Woman on the other end of the phone at Virgin Media - 'I will definitely be better off with a No Deal Brexit.'

Maybe she's stockpiling medicine to sell on the black market.

It's quite boring. I was negotiating a price reduction for my package and said that I was cutting costs partly because Brexit was affecting my business. And off she went.

Oh, i just had a piss. He did tell me a story of someone shitting in an urinal in a Bigg market pub toilet and sticking a bottle of brown ale on top.

7am shit and politics chat is the only thing that keeps me turning up to work

I chose not to get into a debate with her because she was giving me a complimentary £30 off my next bill and I didn't want her to change her mind.

Heh. I'm sure if I'd spent a few more minutes on the phone to a No Deal Brexiter I'd have made her see sense.

Tories now showing Corbyn against a background of what appears to be blood: https://twitter.com/Conservatives/status/1186915071445917696

They've done that for two tweets now.

Is he meant to be winking?

Just listened to james o brian for a minute.

Immediately pivoting to moaning about corbyn

‘It looks like they will go for an election rather than a 2nd referendum and I’ll never understand why’

Because there is no majority for one ffs.
