    People in tents. Look around you SH. I have just seen such things in some of the most affluent towns and villages in the south of England. Not just the odd one here or there, but encampments.

    Annunziata Rees-Mogg, the working class hero has jumped ship leaving poor old Farage even further from his knighthood. Anyone seen her brother since he blew a fuse. There was one reported sighting in Somerset, but he was asked a question and fled, and as far as I can tell hasn't been seen since.

    The more prospective Brexit MPs switch to supporting the Conservatives the better. Jacob is in the same cave as Diane Abbott and Emily Thornberry, kept well out of the country's gaze.

    Why would you want to keep the leader of the House of Commons out of sight? He is a leading figure in the Tory party. What are you afraid that he might say?

    I haven't yet decided whose lies I'm willing to fall for.

    One thing that I have seen during my trip is the huge number of people saying they will vote tactically to keep the Tories out where possible. That is what has been said by a report suggesting it could be 30%, but throughout the south of the country I have had people say that to me. A common view has been that neither of the two main parties is fit to run a whelck stall let alone a country.

    I suspect you are very selective who you re-quote unless you fill the backseats with the odd bods from the bread queue!! :emoticon-0102-bigsm

    Thankfully we don't have an option like the extremely weak and unpopular Macron, second thoughts he might be similar to the hapless Corbyn.

    Of course there is a limit to the number of people that you speak to in three weeks, and they tend mainly to be typical middle class people in my case. Conversations in a pub that show how people say this government has "shafted" them. Conversations with people who feel like many that this is no longer a middle of the road political party but far too right wing. Ex-Tories voting for the Greens over the environment because they do not trust them. Probably the most common thing was why vote for a leader who is quite openly telling lies, and is not interested in others, simply himself. The actual voting system has been roundly condemned by nearly all, and agreed that it will not change because of the two parties fear of never being in office again.

    I think you have been talking to the mirror whilst in England. The result next week will tell you why.

    Surely you Tory lot must know he really doesn't care about anything but himself?

    “It is a mistake to make propaganda many-sided, like scientific instruction, for instance.
    The receptivity of the great masses is very limited, their intelligence is small, but their power of forgetting is enormous. In consequence of these facts, all effective propaganda must be limited to a very few points and must harp on these in slogans until the last member of the public understands what you want him to understand by your slogan. As soon as you sacrifice this slogan and try to be many-sided, the effect will piddle away, for the crowd can neither digest nor retain the material offered. In this way the result is weakened and in the end entirely cancelled out. Thus we see that propaganda must follow a simple line and correspondingly the basic tactics must be psychologically sound.”

    Labour can only blame themselves for letting such a loser lead the party and come up with a silly and confusing message regarding Brexit. They will be caned by many of their traditional voters for not respecting the referendum result. The failures for preventing the incursion by Momentum and widespread anti Semitic incidences will simply lead to another defeat.

    Their message on Brexit is not a confusing one SH. They are saying they will hold a second referendum and will respect the result, which will be binding. Their manifesto is possible in both scenarios, remain or go - all very simple really. In a polarized World they are remaining in the middle.

    So the person who does not reply to my e-mails has been out campaigning for a candidate who has been forced to apologize over his anti-Muslim and anti-Semitic material that he has copied from Tommy Robinson. This is a total disgrace and shows just how far the Tories have been infiltrated by the far right.

    The public are not convinced by Labour's stand on Brexit. A weak 'still effectively in the EU' versus 'remain' is no choice at all. Many voters are thick but they can still work this one out.
