    This might get interesting. A lot of people seem to like Farage. I have a suspicion that he might well end up UK PM at a later date, largely due to his 'populist' policies. How that might pan out, I have no idea.
    Of course it'll fit, you just need a bigger hammer.

    Anyone watch the debate last night? Apparently, both party leaders spent large parts of the debate spouting the same policies.

    Looks like Labour's still as full as infighting as it always has been: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/articles/c722zkj9ly8o

    We'll be swapping one s******w for another come 4th July.

    The Green Party has promised tax rises. That'll win them a lot of votes: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/articles/c6ppd6p12k4o

    The Greens can promise hourly shuttles to the moon, it doesn't matter as they aren't going to be in any position to deliver anything.

    Just read that Labour might be having problems with some of its union backers. Apparently, they walked out of a meeting called to discuss workers' rights.

    I get the feeling Labour's infighting is every bit as bad as anything the Tories can produce.
