    Sorry but that makes absolutely no sense at all

    It will all start to make sense on June 9th when the scale of the Labour defeat starts to sink in.

    Don't believe everything you read/hear in the the right-wing, biased media.

    I'm quite happy to bet you (or anyone else on SZ) that the Tories won't get the much vaunted 3 figure majority (ie 100 seats) that Benfleet (and others) have talked about.

    Maybe not to you, but it wasn't down to him being inspiring in any way.

    Well, I'm convinced then. After all, the Oracle has spoken.

    Unlike you I don't buy or subscribe to news papers. So my world is not based around what Guardian tell me.

    I'm over the other side of town so Callaghan would be the one on my voting sheet. If Woodley was standing against Amess he would probably get my vote as I agree with what you say about the guy.
    What if the Hokey Cokey is what it's all about?

Maybe I will listen carefully to what these two indies have to say before I vote. It would certainly be a shock to the Borough if the two Lords of the Manor lost their seats, however unlikely that may seem.
    IMO all of us should take this approach rather than the "I voted Labour, Dad voted Labour, his dad and his dad, and so on and so on. I'm certainly going to look at the local candidates and vote for who I think represents me more.
    If that turns out to be Stella Creasy then so be it, but I'm voting for the local area rather than the figure heads.

    A bit of a bollock if you live in Corbyn's constituency though. Or not, dependent on your views I suppose.

    I don't understand people not doing this. Instead we have this tribal devotion to one side or other like it is a football team. This blind support for red or blue is disastrous for our country and our democracy.

    So, Corbyn and Labour today decide to attack the government on infant/primary class sizes. My God! there are SO many areas in education (teacher morale and numbers, new grammar schools) where the Tories can be rightly taken to task. Yet, Labour launch an attack using a TINY minority of oversized classes and claiming that the situation is getting worse,.......which it apparently isn't..............well, only in Wales, where Labour are in control! Their arguments were effectively and embarrassingly torn to pieces on the World at One, a short time ago. Verdict, Labour need to do better, one hell of a lot better. If this is the quality of their argument and debate, they will get the drubbing they deserve......pathetic, sorry
