You're really not very confident, are you?

I'm still seething at the deliberate 'leaving out' of Jo Swinson in the Corbyn/ Johnson debate on TV. Even our posts here just assume the Lib Dems have no chance. Less than Farage at any rate. These 'bun fights' should have all contestants included for the public to weight them up, not have a carefully selected and presented few.
Just read that staunch, life long, conservative ( and one time MP ) Mathew Parris declare in the Times that he has left the Conservative party. no longer able to stomach what has gone on. He says he will vote Lib Dem and that 'One third of conservatives have also pledged to do the same'.He encourages the rest to think about what they are voting for. He says that it's true, when he voted in the referendum he voted for his party, not Brexit,and that would be true of many others. That 'innocence' has gone now with the shambles that has followed
Farage has pledged to yet again de-rail the conservative vote by throwing everything at it.This is the time for the Lib Dems to mount the campaign of their lives .With a young leader..( not a fanatical old man,or a mop haired liar and cheat ) at their head. They have more support than they realise .they just have to find a way to get in front of that camera....Do what Obama did and get on FaceBook and Twitter( aghhh Twitter has just said no more politics) Soooooo frustrating

I saw where a labour supporter has applied to be in the QT audience, and they do ask your political affiliation on the application, he always put Labour and never got an invite, so he decided to change his political affiliation the next time, and put Brexit party, was a great fan of Farage and voted Leave in the referendum, he had his invite within 48 hours.

Question time is just a vehicle to support Johnson and Leave policies.
and absolutely true... I was going to reply to the original poster but you have said it sll

Luckily I don't have to put up with any UK politicians just the Canadian ones. Is there a difference between the 2? Well ours seem or tend to be more polite and there are less of them. They all like to spend money and make promises that they won't keep to remain in power or their jobs. Both have generous pension provisions and if well known can make a fortune on the talk circuit once retired or kicked out of office. When asked questions about a variety of subjects which could be answered Yes or No they give the convoluted party line answer. As I get older and probably more disillusioned with politicians and parties of all stripes and having seen what they do I prefer not to vote for any of them.

They've got every chance of being in a position to play a vital supporting role post-election.

Swinson should stop being so belligerent and so contradictory. Her recent public pronouncements and actions indicate she'd rather have a no agreement Brexit than a government which, as far as Brexit is concerned, does exactly what the LibDems said all along was what they wanted.

Prime Minister Jo Swinson, though? Don't think so. Not on this thread, anyway.

Maybe she'd stand a chance on a thread of her own?

The real reason is that Swinson has a 'party' consisting of less than 10 MPs. she also has a number of people who have joined her via several other parties after losing their own. If you are going on numbers of MPs then Nicola Sturgeon shoud be invited, she has more than Swinson. Swinson has turned the Lib-Dems into a yellow version of the Tory party with a manifesto that is so similar, so it would mean Jeremy would be against Johnson and Johnson-lite.

After Brexit and Trump, fundamentally - no. The public can be monumentally thick when they want to be, so who knows. But £150 to charity is also far more positive towards the world as a whole than me getting abused in West Quay and covered in my own poop.....i think, anyway.

Interesting column on Tory spending.

https://www.theguardian.com/business...le-on-its-head

As usual, the question seems to be not how much things cost, given how the Tories are emulating the Labour platform, but where the bill will be sent.

They may be a more viable proposition, but do we really need another Tory-lite party in elections alongside the Lib-Dems?

And the Tories seem split between adopting Labour policies (as per LiW's link) and hard Brexit.

Latest polls show that Johnson has lost at least 8% in the last 4 days. It's a bit like what happened in 2017, when the GE was called May had a huge lead and the polls were suggesting a 100 seat overall lead, and look what nhappened, Jeremy is a very accomplished orator, puts johnson to shame, never shouts, always calm when he puts things across, but also gets his points across. (by the way, incase you wondered I'm a Labour Party member as of 6 weeks ago)

I wouldn't say he's an accomplished orator at all. I've heard him speak in person three times and, for me at least, Corbyn has zero charisma or presence. Put him up against Dennis Skinner for example, and he sounds like a pale imitation. The Momentum arse kissers still lap it up, of course. (By the way, in case you wondered, I gave up my Labour party membership over 2 years ago).

Campaigning and running for office is so nasty and down in the gutter which is the reason why we can't recruit a smart even toned candidate for leader. Which explains Johnson, Trump ect. Corbyn is less crazy than those other two crazies but he is still far too liberal. A Socialist? Really? NO!!
But I would take him over Trump and Johnson who are HUGE liars!

Gah! Please stop conflating "liberal" and "socialist". They are not the same thing at all.
