I still haven't seen the antisemitic comments which Chris Williamson allegedly made???

 

Sadly, it makes sense that you can't stand if suspended, irrespective of the merits of that suspension.

What’s happened here then? 
 

I thought that constituents trumped everything. Sure that was said a few times in this thread.

Gutted that Williamson is not allowed to stand, he doesn't deserve to be suspended.

 

Also a very marginal seat that will now be handed on a plate to the Tory pricks.

Given the swift response my guess is she probably made some remarks that could be used to attack labour on the grounds of anti-semitism.

Someone spotted a copy of the Merchant of Venice in her handbag so you know, she hates Jews.

Isn't she meant to have said something nasty to a disabled Labour party member? If that's accurate, I wonder if the Lib Dems will follow and withdraw the candidacy from their bloke who mocked the disabled and cancer sufferers?

What a wonderfully twisted mind a person must need to see dyslexia jokes as mocking the disabled.

 

Saying that the Paralympic Games looks like a night out in Salford - now that's mocking the disabled.

Any need though really?

I saw a report the other day about how unreliable the polls are. Most people these days don’t have a landline or don’t answer it, with mostly older people answering when they do get an answer.

 

Similarly when they go out speaking to people when they’re polling, they head out to the High Street. I dunno about you lot but I probably head out to the High Street about four times a year these days. If they’re heading to the High Street during the week, it’s mostly pensioners and young mothers, not exactly a cross section of the community.

 

And as for online polls, that’s a very small niche section of society. 

 

That being said it appears clear that Labour have a lot of work to do. I think a lot of people who have recently been polled and said they’d vote Lib Dem will realise when it comes to the crunch if you want the Tories out and a chance at remaining in the EU, Labour is the sensible choice.

 

My prediction, the Lib Dems will finish with no more than 13% of the vote, and end up with around 30 seats. Tories largest party but not enough for a majority, meaning Labour, the SNP, and the Lib Dems will have the chance to work together and secure another EU referendum.

People get more conservative as they get older. 

The age that people are switching to Tory is getting older though. It was mid-30’s in the 80’s, it’s almost 50 now. And with a generation priced out of buying a home in large parts of the country, and 10 years of austerity and no wage growth, that’s unlikely to be a trend that’s going to reverse.

 

I also think Johnson and his Brexiteer hardliners are making the Tories unpalatable to huge numbers of people.

None of that invalidates what I said.  
 

they do, they will continue to do so.

I’m not so sure. The gold-plated final salary pension mob will be dying out, replaced by people who are forced by the Tories to work until they’re 70 to qualify for a state pension and be in a position to retire.

I didn’t think you were sure.
