Having said that, the Tory manifesto doesn't has much body to it neither but I assume that's never really a discussion point.
Getting Brexit done seems to be the message, even though that will probably take years (which is never mentionned neither).
I'm ready to be proven wrong and like most on here have a fixed view on what's going on and any of us can be wrong.
However, I do firmly believe that only the conservatives have an identifiable path to winning this election and only by default since they've had to adopt a pro brexit route to appease their backbenchers and their PM.
Labour has only just realised their mistake and altered their electoral stand and the LDs have chosen a stand that makes no sense if they want to win.

I don't know for sure but it seems that you may be equating disapproval of Boris with believing he's not going to win the election. People for him believe he's going to win and people against him believe he's going to win. In that respect none of us will be wrong.

I don't think he will do nearly as well as the polls suggest.

Excuse me ... I think this mess will end up with a hung Parliament .... So maybe I will be proven wrong.
I can not see the Tories as the big winner. And then, can they find a strong enough coalition partner ?
2 more weeks to go ......

Oh I didn't mean a landslide or anything like that. Minority government easily possible.

I agree with that, the 2017 election was said to me a landslide for the Tories in all the polls, and look what happened, Labour supporters either lied to pollsters, or their was a big anti tory surge in the last few days. The same is likely to happen this time, but the DUP won't bail them out, the LibDems are a spent force with support dropping all the time, and now they have dropped the revoke art 50 as a policy.

After Brexit and Trump polls getting it so wrong, I decided not to put any value to polls.
Esp. Youguv which I think has links with the Tories (maybe I'm wrong though).

Some of those kicked out have been allowed back. If it made the difference, those not allowed back (yet) might become 'welcome' with the right incentives like those offered to Brexit Party members.

Thirteen days to go.
Thirteen... Did you know that 13 = 6 + 7 ?
And...
Did you know that 42 = 6 x 7 ?
And...
Did you know that 42 is the answer: the answer to life, the universe and everything ?
And...
Did you know that the Vogons are out there waiting to demolish the Earth?

I think I'll be voting Vogon. Does it for me.

Twelve. Did you know that the prime derivatives of twelve are 1,2 and 3.
And...
Did you know that 1 + 2 + 3 = 6?
And...
Did you know that there are 6 letters in the word LABOUR
And...
Did you know that there are 6 letters in the word CORBYN

Did you know if you add the missing 6th letter, the silent E, to VOGON, you get the anagram of NO GOVE which is a cosmic instruction on voting.

No I wasn't aware of this etherial message, but there are only eleven days to go.
Did you know that 11 is a Prime number, which is quite apposite since there were 11 candidates vying for Prime Minister when May's job became vacant.
And of course once Judas Iscariot was disgraced there remained 11 followers and I'm left to wonder whether any of them fancied the top job after seeing that, as May discovered, the job could get you crucified.

Not to mention the fact that Gordon Brown lived in No.11 when he was PRIME Minister. It's some kind of Vogon set up.

Ten days to go, and the significance of Number 10 is what it's all about.
Scratching my head I came across this https://mysticalnumbers.com/number-10/
One snippit among many describes the French Revolutionary Calendar.
Each month comprised three 10 day weeks or decades, day 10 was a rest day.
Unfortunately there were 5 days left over for a full year so they added these to the end of each year.
Each day was made from 10 hours with 100 minutes and 100 seconds to the minute.
Apparently it ran for 12 years before Napoleon put a stop to it in 1806.
Not quite as successful as decimal currency.
