    General Election 2019

    Good read from Peter Oborne. A snippet. A big reason for Johnson’s easy ride is partisanship from the parts of the media determined to get him elected. I have talked to senior BBC executives, and they tell me they personally think it’s wrong to expose lies told by a British prime minister because it undermines trust in British politics. Is that a reason for giving Johnson free rein to make any false claim he wants? https://amp.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2019/nov/18/boris-johnson-lying-media?__twitter_impression=true

    Some comments from the CBI which should be bread and butter for a Tory leader right?

    Talking of American politics I was always aware America doesn't like baldy presidents. I now know they don't like shorties as well.

    Seems to me like Labour and the Democrats in America are both going through a realignment from third way politics and finding their feet.

    General Election 2019

    I still haven't heard any solid ideas how this sensible politician would have gotten back 50 odd seats in Scotland - been able to balance leavers and remainers - all whilst being even more pro-remain and speaking to the Labour leavers. Whilst at the same time addressing some of the reasons why people voted to leave the EU by addressing the changes in our economy over the past few decades. I mean I could make a case that if Owen Smith had won the leadership race in 2017, May would have had a 100 seat majority and Brexit would have already been done and dusted. Parliament didn't agree on a soft Brexit because they were holding out for a referendum. That is the absolute travesty - politicians gambled with a harder Brexit knowing they wouldn't feel the impact. They led a lot of good people with the fantasy notion of a referendum when it was always highly unlikely unless...

    This is a poll of polls from the last nine. You can look back over the last year and see what events happened. Labour come out for a referendum, May resigns, Johnson appointed, BXP soften stance, Parliament prorogued, European elections etc in no order.

    This is the Survation poll. The Brexit vote is strong in this one.

    Doesn't sound like a lot of these whose leave vote is driven by Brexit would forget Brexit if there was a different Labour leader does it.

    I'm gonna be chicken and wait another fortnight for things to settle down before I feel comfortable making a prediction as there are too many unknown factors.

    If there is apathy then that is very bad news. I suspect there is some sort of response bias being picked up and different pollsters treating turnout in 2017 as an outlier.

    Pollsters normally ask a question something along the lines of how likely are you to vote 1-10 or likely very likely etc. They factor the answer to this question in how they weight the turnout in age groupings.
