They think they don't because it's empty, but it's actually accurate.

Ahhhhh, do you see?

Admittedly I think this misses the recent partied while the Queen mourned spike.

Also pretty amusing that Kent's forensic leadership, concentrating on attracting Tory voters, has convinced a massive 5% of them to vote Labour.

Did the 33% of Tory voters no longer voting for any of the main parties say they were apathetic or is that what Yougov has concluded?

Can't be that much of a leap from "Apathy" to "Kieth's our man." It'll just take a minute drop in enthusiasm.

Voter ID though; yeah I know it's meant to add obstacles to the working class, but tories will still need to go to the effort to get their passports out the sideboard.

I had never heard this song before - listening to it definitely enhanced my day, even though it's quite annoying!

Imagine being welcomed by Lucy Powell, you'd swiftly check the exits.

Politico said a lot of the fees were due to antisemitism cases

Oh, if only the Tories went under due to their anti-Muslim (and everybody else) rhetoric

Heh! He took up Edwina Currie's advice.


As far as I've seen, he's been more willing to stand up for working people than the Starmtroopers.

Imagine, if you will, Sir Kier Starmer, the amazing adult, standing astride this great United Kingdom like a twenty-first century colossus. He embodies hard work, opportunity and justice. He knows the true power of uhhhhhhhH

Right I'll finish the rest of my column once my prostate has filled my balls back up

If you were in any doubt about them being the tory b-team

Reeves really is a spectacular nothing. She's studied the economic system and wants to give it a good polishing now and then to make sure it's running as it always has.

She seems less of an actual human than Sir Keir.

So "levelling up" should essentially be telling local councils in deprived areas to sort it out themselves, without giving them any more funds to do so?

Yeah it's very much moving the deckchairs about on the Titanic, but in this version of the metaphor the boat is brilliant and should keep on floating with its massive gaps in standards of cabins for the classes forever I reckon
