    Apparently Theresa May tried telling them she was unwell yesterday, but ATOS assessed her as fit for work.

    What's the assessment of the cabinet?

    "I think we could all do with sitting back a bit and detaching ourselves from the situation to really think about how these issues reflect on our future and how we discuss them here and be a bit less aggressive or defensive because everyone has a complicated set of circumstances that has led the to place importance on particular issues and it doesn't meany any of them is less valid, we just need to look at the broader picture"

    Here is a productive way of spending your time and handling the shortage of Brexit negotiation staff if you are in the UK government:

    Whitehall rivals battle for Brexit staff
    https://www.ft.com/content/fad88f9c-...83c97?mhq5j=e7 (pay pay pay)

    The two men in charge of Britain’s Brexit negotiations are battling each other for staff and resources, in a further sign of instability within the UK team days before the next round of talks with Brussels is due to begin. Olly Robbins, who left his job as head of the Department for Exiting the EU last month to set up a rival “Europe Unit” in Downing Street, is openly trying to poach his former colleagues from David Davis, the Brexit secretary. In an email to staff at Dexeu and UkRep, Britain’s diplomatic mission in Brussels, Mr Robbins, 42, described the work of the Europe unit and called for “expressions of interest” to join him.

    Observers have questioned what work Dexeu will be left with, after Mr Robbins said his new unit will be in charge of “developing the over-arching substance of, and approach to, the UK’s withdrawal, and the negotiation of our new partnership with the EU”. The email, which has been seen by the FT, says the Europe unit will have five deputy directors and is looking to recruit staff in four teams covering trade, security, the post-Brexit “implementation period” and the preparation of publications. It is careful to insist that it will be working “in tandem” with Dexeu.

    Mr Davis has insisted that Mr Robbins’ move to the heart of Mrs May’s Downing Street operation is not a signal that he and his own department are being sidelined.

    Fractal facepalming is the concept I'm trying to convey.

    I don't think infinite facepalms are enough for that.

    Those arent especially good mid-term numbers for Labour especially given how many fuckups the tories have had, but it's a start.

    It's the relative change that is probably more important.

    The fact that labour can build a platform like this based on a grass roots movement that is/was considered 'extreme' by the party mainstream of the past couple of decades is a promising start. The biggest and most important challenge Labour have is developing a strategy and message which can withstand the continuous assault of the nations' press. The biggest unknown moving forward are the 'shy tories'; voters who will agree with almost all labour messaging and policies but don't translate that into a cross next to a labour candidate in the voting booth.

    All true. Also polls may underestimate youth turnout again

    There was a decent article by Marina Hyde in the guardian the other day discussing that, I'll see if I can dig it up.

    Most polls still drift into hung parliament territory and the inevitability of coalition, and both sides must be shaking their heads and wondering how. How are the Tories not smashing this bunch of old left crumblies into next week, and how the fuck are Labour not 6-0 ahead against Theresa May's band of yesterdays?

    They might be at risk of overestimating the the OAP turnout depending how well the underfunded NHS copes with flu season.

    Iain Dale: If there was a Brexit vote now, would you vote Brexit? Have you changed your mind?

    Theresa May: I don't answer hypothetical questions

    ID : I know I would vote in exactly the same way

    TM: I voted Remain. Circumstances move on. I think we should all be focused on delivering Brexit.

    You're asking me to say how would I vote now against a different background. A different international background, a different economic background.

    ID : You can't tell how you would vote now? Jeremy Hunt said he would now vote for Brexit because George Osborne's economic predictions did not come through and he said he was fed up with the belligerent attitude of the European Commission. If he said he would change his mind I don't understand why you can't.

    TM: Yes and I'm Prime Minister ensuring I'm going to deliver Brexit for the British people.

    ID : But you can't tell me that you would now vote Leave in a referendum?

    TM: I could sit here and I could say I'd still vote Remain or I'd vote Leave, just to give you an answer. I'm being open and honest with you. What I did last time round was I looked at everything and came to a judgment and I'd do exactly the same this time round. But we're not having another referendum. That's absolutely crucial. We are going to deliver on the vote of the British people, we are going to deliver Brexit. 29th March 2019, we come out of the European Union.
    I doubt she'll make it till christmas.

    To be fair its clearly a Gotcha question and her answer would be a frontpage regardless of how she framed it, the only way not to lose was to refuse to play.

    I dunno, she could have just said "I'm impressed by how well my government is carrying out the will of the people following the referendum. The economic doom and gloom was largely unfounded and making a success of brexit is guaranteed by the team that is in place. I'd vote for it in a rerun of the referendum"

    Shit all over Cameron for being unable to stomach brexit, pander to the 'will of the people', flatter some colleagues who are out for your guts all in one move.

    She could have said that, had she been someone who can think on their feet.
