Re: UK Election 12 Dec 2019

Exit poll predicting Conservative majority of 86. Much more than I was expecting.

Re: UK Election 12 Dec 2019

Off on a slight tangent, here is David Allen Green on what is NOT happening today. The irony is that the Conservatives are promoting themselves today as a solution to the current political disarray, when it was the Conservatives getting their first majority since 1992 which is the direct cause of wh...

To write a good article you need writing skills.
I would agree, but I don't think links to a removal company in Florida are likely to be of assistance.

"The Sinner."

I've just caught up on episode 3/8 of this US drama which is currently occupying the "International Crime" slot in BBC4's Saturday 9pm fixture. Finding it quite involving, with not only the central juvenile character but also his mother and two of the investigating officers all seeming to have psych...

Re: General Election matters

A new article on the possible effects of tactical voting in GE19. With just ten days to go and polls closing from the landslide victory predicted just last week for Boris Johnson, this 12 December election is on a knife edge. A new study confirms other studies that find tactical voting could make al...

Apostrophe society admits its defeat.

A society dedicated to preserving the “much-abused” apostrophe is to be shut down as its chairman said “ignorance and laziness” had won. John Richards, who worked in journalism for much of his career, started the Apostrophe Protection Society in 2001 after he retired. Now 96, Richards is calling ti...

REASONS TO BE (CAUTIOUSLY) CHEERFUL Otto English raises a glass half full – to a future of hope after the years of chaos which may follow next month’s General Election. "As the weight of the task crushes Johnson and his acolytes to a slow political death, as crisis follows crisis, as the country wa...

Re: General Election matters

Depressingly, I have the impression that a hung parliament is becoming less likely as opinion seems to be polarising. At this rate, Johnson will win. This graph suggests a large increase in Conservative popularity since Johnson became PM. It leaves me mystified. https://www.theguardian.com/politics...

"THE GREAT BREXIT PARTY SWINDLE".

A new , and very interesting piece from Otto English. Farage and his Brexit Party associates have raised millions of pounds during the course of this year and the full amount might never be known. Most of that money has come from donations from ordinary people who have handed over hard-earned cash i...

Re: Brexit consequences

"Australia and others ask for Brexit trade compensation." (I'd say it's all going rather well. Wouldn't you, Wilson?") Countries including Australia have asked for trade compensation from the UK and the EU over Brexit disruption. Fifteen countries, including the US, India and New Zealand, have been...
