    Had to chuckle on learning that noted racist and fake streetboy Tommy "Actually mummy and daddy christened me Stephen Yaxley-Lennon" Robinson got proper slapped in by an actual streetboy on his first day in chokey. Said non-fakeywakey streetboy being, er, 70 years old

    Seems like their boy Tom isn't so tough as he likes to make out when he doesn't have a posse of his dupes intimidating people on his behalf. Perhaps he'll learn a valuable lesson on the benefits of keeping his stupid racist noisehole closed in future, but I suspect that it'll take a few more incidents like this before the lesson sinks in.

    Sajid Javid praises Nigel Farage in speech on extremism

    So which one of you thinks Javid is an extremist?
    It's the electoral commission, a political neutral body and the defense that he was too thick to understand what he was doing is hardly a ringing endorsement.

    Javid is scared of Brexit party because his party is too arrogant and incompetent to ever deliver Brexit and they are losing votes to them. Attacking them as racist will mean those voters won't come back, so like UKIP became the acceptable face of the BNP, the Brexit party will become the acceptable face of UKIP before later after several scandals it turns out the Brexit party is a bit racist. Javid knows this so he plays nice with them because when its all over one way or another he wants those voters to come back to the Tories.
    What's that word I'm thinking of? Starts with an A?

    Oh yes, appeasement.

    Or maybe Corbyn has an appeal on a policy level that goes beyond brexit?

    Apparently 0.2/5 is positive for Corbyn, go figure.

    In the context of the rest of the visual scoring above 0 appears to be a decent measure of success

    Judging from the survey above, the only thing that is keeping people from massively switching votes to the Green Party is the prisoner's dilemma of the UK electoral system.

    No one asked about policies, which are in any case only of interest insofar as they're the policies of someone with the competency to actually see them enacted.

    Charlie Elphicke (Tory MP for Dover) has been charged with three counts of sexual assault.

    Elphicke was suspended from the Conservative party for just over a year after allegations of sexual offences were made against him, but he had his suspension lifted so that he could take part in the no confidence vote in Theresa May in December.

    On one hand, the Greens suffer from a complete lack of media coverage so they struggle to get their message across.

    On the other hand, they haven't been subjected to a campaign of media vilification.

    I'm sure a politician's or party's policy positions play a role in how positively or negatively they are perceived. As much as the media try to change things policy is partly what they exist for.

    Corbyn’s time is now! No if only the evil media, da joows and the illuminati lizards would get off his back, he’d actually be able to form a shortly-lived coalition with the Libdems!

    Only Alan Duncan has actually resigned just yet. The others (including probably Stewart) have said they would do so, and probably will now soon.

    But it's probably going to be staggered, so as to inflict maximum political damage.

    Though, really, they're resigning so that they won't be sacked. Which they definitely would be.

    The Americans put a man on the moon, surely Corbyn can pass himself off as half competent for a day or two. You just have to believe!
