And the one mentioned on Radio 4's news earlier, who posted a gif/image depicting the SNP candidate for her constituency being sprayed with bleach ( presumably a photoshopped/faked image )

Was liking the fake made up image of Boris's conference today - staged to look like there was more people there :lol: - compared to the Labour conference tonight in Manchester where it was crammed full with people queuing around the block.
Labour have a serious chance this time of getting into Number10 wont please a section of the UK but will please the majority - just need everyone to vote - thats the key.

I wouldn't hold your breath.

Labour have a considerable more members than the Tories anyway, was to be expected there'd be more in attendance at the event!

Which policy attracts you the most?

No votes have been cast yet so it's all to play for. You don't even need a majority of votes, 38% should do it this time.

Interesting. I came up with 38% based on the results at the last two general elections without reference to our poll. That the Conservatives and LD's are on that mark in our poll is an eyebrow raiser. My guess though is that in the election proper Labour will do better than our poll shows and so will the Brexit party (unless a deal is done).

I still haven't posted who I'm voting for as I'm still undecided, so no Tories haven't outright won yet.

Would it be fair to carry out a full investigation into Johnson's private life or alleged wheeling and dealing during 'Purdah'?

Yes.

Because, as I recall, purdah applies to the civil service decisions/announcements (planning appeal decisions, that sort of thing), not announcements/decisions relating to the political candidates themselves.

Using purdah as a political tool to avoid embarrassment defies the entire point of purdah in the first place.

Would it be fair for the public not to be told before they vote for him the truth on whether he misused their funds?

I don’t think you see just how jaded/entrenched you look to everyone else.

Boris could shoot someone on Oxford Street and people (you?) would still vote for him. You’ve picked your side, and nothing based in fact or reason will convince you otherwise.

But, let it be marked, that I say the same about any scandals affecting the their parties. I’d love some sort of proper full inquiry into Labour’s anti-semitism, which is disgusting. I think if Labour or the Lib Dems or any other party are involved in any of this Russian tampering report, people who might vote for them need to know about it, too.

So supporting Hamas and Hezbollah isn’t anti-Semitic, that’s an interesting point of view.
