    General Election 2024?

    Sounds like a TOTP act from 1988. "And up next with Totally Doomed, a new hit from Ross and Holden."

    In a marginal, voters for a party which got 2k last time being told to vote for another anti-Tory party is probably not great news for Mr Douglas Ross.

    General Election 2024?

    Thing is, you know that, I know that we all know that and still... Labour have lost at least five elections in my parents lifetime because the Tories have convinced swing voters Labour will tax them. It's a precedent based on recent history that if they are at all honest before the election they don't get elected. I don't like it but I can understand it.

    General Election 2024?

    Sure enough. My seat says "No fucker votes for the Tories in your seat, you jammy bastard. Peace out.". Which is fair enough.

    To be fair, I think politicians mostly talk a lot of shite so judge them on what they put into print (and can be held to) or what they actually do with power (and can be judged on). Can't do the latter with Starmer yet! (Stress on "yet".) It is very much don't scare the horses, but given England's propensity to vote for the Tories at the slightest excuse, and also to vote for the Tories when Labour do good stuff in office (NHS and welfare? Vote Tory. Liberalise society and keep us out of Vietnam? Vote Tory. Tories fucked up the economy? Vote Tory. etc etc) I do understand it. Even if its as exciting as plain rice for dinner. YouGov and others have changed their weighting mid-election which seems... weird to me but I'm not a pollster. (The last YouGov would have had Labour on 44% but has shifted prediction of the don't knows and former Tory voters from 2019.) Lots of hedging bets I think. Everyone is focused on the Lab/Tory and Tory/Reform polling differences but I think we need to keep an eye on the Tory/Lib Dem margin, as its getting a lot closer and that effects about 100 Tory seats.

    Just to say having read the manifesto a vast chunk of it is lifted directly from the 2019 manifesto! Shame UBI is on the back burner though. And I'm not keen on much of the language around immigration and welfare. Even so, considerably to the left of the Blair manifesto in 1997. The Tory manifesto is all about how people need to be of service. Ominous shit. Not read the SNP manifesto yet but from history neither will several of their candidates! Hopefully. @En Passant from Glasgow, anyone but France! 3 of the last 4 finals, time they gave someone else a go! If that's England fair enough. Would like a proper underdog win though like Denmark 92 or the Greeks in 2004.

    Punt Pool

    Nope, my five live on. Art Garfunkel - legit surprised he's still around. Russell Grant - still looks like a HA in motion. John Goodman - went on a health kick and lost a bunch of weight and tbh good on him. Michael Barrymore - just thought he was due a stroke, looked like shit on TV when the game started. Steve Buscemi - just a punt pick. He worked as a fireman on 9-11, I sort of expect the cancer news one day. But tbh I picked punts, not realising half the teams would go for old frail folk!

    General Election 2024?

    They've taken down the infrastructure for the basic phones in large parts of the country under the Tories. Would cost shitloads to re-do. Bullies gonna bully regardless. They didn't have smartphones or internet in the eighties yet still tracked down our neighbours son via the phone box and set fire to their dog. (I knew the dog years later, it survived and lived to be close to 20 human years old which is bloody ancient for a terrier. Just adding that bit in for those worried. No, I can't imagine harming any dog like that, let alone a lovely wee thing like that guy.)
