Definitely feels like there’s a realignment going on. Northern, traditional working class places going Tory and some southern remain leaning seats rejecting the Tories?

Greens ripping it up in Bristol. The Labour right MPs Thangam Debbonaires turf is especially taking a hammering.

 

 

 

This purge of the left going down a storm in Bristol, for the greens that is. What the fuck are the Labour party thinking poking a stick at left wing members in a place like Bristol?

Culture is becoming more important than class.

We need proportional representation its all horseshit dickhead boundaries shaped by parties in power for the benefit of their parties. I can afford not to vote knowing full well my area will vote Labour, apathy comes from complacency aswell as lack of hope.

My prediction last year of the Greens being the third biggest party vote wise not seat wise at the next general election doesn't look so daft now. 

 

 

Sir Keir seems bent on getting them to second.

What the fuck is going on with the Labour party strategy (especially towards young people) down Bristol?

 

Do Labour think they are in a strong enough position to neglect the youth vote? Especially in a city like Bristol. Fucking madness. If Starmer's going to survive he's needs to sack his campaign team and start being a bit more politically savvy, and fast.

I lived in Soundwell, nth West Bristol for a while years ago, fantastic city I enjoyed it there. My district, hillfields has stayed red which is a surprise as its got Soundwell college there but far play to the kids for going green although it's flummoxed me a bit, what the fuck are Labour playing at? Did they miss Thunberg speaking there a while back? Didn't they see the signs? The next election will now be interesting for Labour down there.

No Overall Control always do well , maybe we can pinch some of their ideas.

Yeah send Peter Mandelson down there on a fact finding mission, our Mandy can try to bring the youngsters back to Labour although the youth will probably drag him through the streets and chuck him in the water with the old statues.

Wow, tied.

 

 

There have been quite a few member's suspended, messed around and kicked out from Bristol CLPs over the past 12 months. I'll let you join the dots. Add Bristol being Bristol.

Might be for you but that means Labour needs to fight another byelction, which means going out and meeting the general public. The last the Labour party needs is the general public, best be avoided them people.

Good point. She replaced Jo Cox as MP but has already said she won’t do both jobs. I’d like to think whoever stands will win in that particular constituency but who knows at this point.

Yeah I know, I mentioned it earlier, I just can't for the life of me understand the strategy, its crazy, it's a sure fire way to lose support and votes and that's what's happened. Madness.

I think they will take lots of the youth/student/left wing vote. 

 

It's probably a good thing in the long run, as a huge surge in the green vote will help set the agenda for the two main political parties. A bit like the huge surge in the UKIP vote in 2015.

'One group we have seen move away from the Conservatives in the last three weeks, however, is the very politically engaged. As well as weighting by demographic and past voting behaviour to ensure our samples are representative of the overall public, YouGov also weights by how much attention they pay to politics on a scale of 0 to 10. Anyone who self-reports themselves as an 8, 9 or 10 out of 10, we define as having a high political attention. Anyone answering 3-7 is defined as medium attention and 0-2 is low attention.

 

Amongst those who self-report paying a high level of attention to politics, our poll just two days before the local elections showed a five-point lead for Labour (38% to 33%). This was in stark contrast to the rest of our sample, which showed a 15-point lead for the Conservatives (46% to 31%), averaging out at an overall Conservative 10-point lead.

 

Looking at the trend over the last month, we also see two completely different stories depending on whether people are engaged in politics or not. There has been a dramatic shift amongst those with a self-reported political attention of 8/10 or higher, with the Conservatives collapsing from a 17-point lead on 13 April to a five-point Labour lead in early May. Amongst those with a political attention of 7/10 or lower, voting intention is virtually unchanged over this time.'
