    Ha! My account is supported by Alex Nunns The Candidate.TBF he does mention a couple of Labour supporting stand up comedians for their importance in JC's total domination of social media in the last GE.In fact AN argues that the election result could have been different if Labour had sunk resouces into a dozen key marginals instead of opting for a defensive stragey.

    I think Rigsby got it with his earlier post.

    You will be aware that according to the conventional media, Labour were headed for a landslide defeat 0f '83 type proportions in last year's GE.That didn't happen.What else is there to get?

    While more of the elderly voted Conservative? I think you're making my point for me.

    Yes, of course, what I don't understand is why you aimed that at me when clearly I was waving my finger at the tiresome oik that is Rigsby.

    Labour is quite clearly a government in waiting now.Whenever the next GE is called,Labour under Jeremy Corbyn will win it.

    Er, we were discussing Brexit and voters changing their minds e.g. young socialists changing their colours later in life. Not entirely sure where you're going with this.

    My point is quite simple.You were the one talking about young people changing their minds.Not me.My guess,FWIW,is that any Brexit settlement is likely to rebound against Mrs May's Tory government.Also given the slow down in wage increases since 2008 and the near impossiblity for young people to get on the housing ladder is just storing up a demographic timebomb,which will eventually lead to the Tories losing office at the next general election,whenever it is.
