But that is what we will get under Johnson, pretty much more of the same. Whether people like Corbyn or not, the Labour policies have to be more palatable than the Tory policies surely? If it is a hung Parliament, a coalition between Labour and the LibDems would seem to offer a better platform to overturn the last decade of austerity. Corbyn cannot be that bad that anyone would want 5 years of Johnson unless they have enjoyed the last 9 years so much they want more of the same.

 

I like the way you have used the phrase "whether people like Corbyn or not" as if it an irrelevance. People not liking Corbyn is one of the major reasons Labour won't win. And his policies scare people because they are an unholy mess and totally un-deliverable.

 

Expecting the electorate to make massive compromises, and facilitating the election of a hard left crank government just because "it cannot be that bad" and "at least its not the Tories" is arrogant presumption, especially when the Tories are already making huge gains on the opposite argument. People are going to vote Johnson because at least he isn't Corbyn. That's the whole point son.

No. It's possible that under a leader with some guile and charisma the Labour Party could have performed very well at this election. They needed someone with the ability to control the news agenda, articulate the issues in the country and propose a compelling alternative to the British people.

 

Boris is a pretty flaky leader, crumbles under pressure and has faults and inconsistencies that you could drive a bendy bus through. And add to that we've had ten yeads of an incumbent government. It's absolutely infuriating that the opposition hasn't managed to lay a glove on the Conservatives.

 

It could have been a winnable election for Labour but the tragedy for the country and democracy is that the Party were never going to make any ground under that cretin.

 

So no people aren't voting for that list of stuff. Obviously not.

 

Enough normal, hardworking people are voting for the only one of the two they can see being a remotely credible Prime Minister, and one of the two parties that look like they have at least some aptitude in governing. Asking people to vote for Jeremy Corbyn, you might as well ask them to vote for Jimmy Savile.

 

For a centre-left social democrat like me it's something of a gut punch.

 

Just looking forward to Thursday as the beginning of the end of the Corbyn era.

 

Alan Johnson was on the radio the other day and said the left of the party were always telling them that winning an election was easy all you had to do was give the working class people 'stuff' and this gives you an insight into the thinking of the Corbyn machine. They have narrowed down their view but hope that their santa's sack will do the trick. But the reality is you need to build a broader consensus to win. I hope Friday is thd start of a more sensible approach from the Labour party.

This first part is the main point. Corbyn's public image, whether rightly or wrongly, is a disaster. Labour could now put out an amazing manifesto with great ideas, well worked through that would clearly benefit the nation and could be delivered, but the people would still not vote for them in significant numbers, because "not Corbyn and his labour" has become a central choice for many people. It could be that this is just the result of successful propaganda campaign by the right, but it's worked if it was. Labour will not win the masses over until it's perceived to be a new version of the party.

 

The British people are, at heart, mostly centre right, so the left will always suffer more from a bad image than the right.

No of course it isn’t an irrelevance. But Johnson is hardly Mr Popular either is he?I don’t think anyone ever expects parties to deliver on manifesto promises, but as a statement of intent surely the disadvantaged (i.e. most of us) will be better off with a government that addresses the catastrophic underfunding of this country than one who sees trying to bring things back to the way they were 9 years ago as some kind of huge bonus to us all. The Americans ended up with Trump in part because he wasn’t Hilary Clinton and that hasn’t worked well for them had it? I guess we will find out what this country is made of on Friday morning.

Indeed we will. Let's cross our fingers for a sound rejection of extremist Marxist governments on Friday. I believe that the British people won't let us down.

No chance they'll win too many seats, but I think that's mainly a Corbyn personality thing. I wouldn't vote for them until they change.

 

 

Which policies do you think are "extremist Marxist" though?

Are you suggesting there aren't less radical policies than what Labour are proposing at this election that wouldn't be popular with the electorate? Is the road labour have gone down, their own choice?

 

Interestingly, when parties and personalities are taken out of the equation, Labour's policies are in fact the most popular with the electorate...

That is interesting and bears out what many have said, that people have so much trouble getting over the image of Corbyn that it no longer matters what labour are actually standing for. The world would be a different place if we voted purely on policies, but it's not going to happen. Politics is basically a game and BJ is better at it than Corbyn, partly because he treats it more like a game too and comes at it with a clear game-plan.

 

I think even if Johnson announced that, yes, he probably will sell off the NHS, but it'll probably be alright, they would still easily be the largest party. It's like Trump, the core followers are way too devoted for negatives to really pull him down.

But of course they are. Giving people loads of "free" stuff is always going to have more of an appeal than something slightly more realistic as long as you don't think about the implications for too long.

EU migrants have been able to “treat the UK as if it’s part of their own country” for too long, Boris Johnson said yesterday

 

He knows exactly who that quote is aimed at. One one hand he makes a speech about how inequality is essential and the world needs people with low IQs, and then he comes out with this just for those very same people.

 

This man is nothing more than a cvnt. A serial-lying, narcissistic, scheming, elitist cvnt with the moral quality of a cockroach.

You're too f*cking right I'm angry. I'm angry that British politics has come to this. Quite how any sane, rational person could not be angry about the prospect of such a monumental bellend being elected as PM is beyond me. You yourself even admitted last week that you don't think he is fit to be PM.

 

"But he's not as bad as Corbyn" - I can already tell will be the reply from most. Corbyn has many faults, and if elected I have no doubt his dithering and lack of leadership on many issues would cause serious issues, and his failure to do due diligence on some of the people he has associated himself with in the past would most likely come back to haunt him. But in terms of basic human decency, there is simply no comparison between them. If you offer me a party of incompetents lead by a narcissistic pathological liar with a class superiority complex, or a party of incompetents lead by someone who, despite being naive and probably misguided, has actually proved repeatedly that he has genuine empathy for disadvantaged people, then it is a total no-brainer.

 

People railing against the more 'extreme' elements of the Labour manifesto need to understand that there is no hope of them winning a majority in this election, and the best they can hope for is a hung parliament and a coalition with the LDs and/or SNP. In this scenario, there is not a chance they would ever be able to enact any of their more extreme stuff anyway. That's why I'm more than happy to give them my vote, if it helps to remove the most unscrupulous, malignant and corrupt bunch of party-before-country bottom feeders ever to disgrace the halls of Westminster.

It seems its the pig thick electorates fault for not loving labour enough, it's the media conspiracy against the Labour Party, its Steve brannon and his populist rhetoric, its the trump effect and Little Englanders wanting to be ruled over by a posh tory.

 

It's all of that in fact other than the modern Labour Party and the people who run it.

Unfortunately, whilst that is his only attribute, thanks to our voting system it is all he will need to win.

 

It's 2019 and we have a PM who calls muslim women letterboxes and gays tank-topped bum boys. And we are heading for a no deal Brexit to boot.

 

Labour have failed to provide an electable opposition, the only hope is that this is a wake up call and they sort their **** out. the one positive IMO is that Brexit really now is a 100% Tory Brexit and if it doesn't go well there will be no hiding place for them.

I can't speak for someone else but I'd personally find it difficult to make a case that is too positive for the Conservatives. I'm not. Overly enamoured with Johnson, I think they've buggered up universal credit and I don't think they care much about my business.

 

I am however more ideologically opposed to labour and here's a quick summary why. I don't support big government, I don't want too much state control depriving us of freedoms, I don't like the politics of envy, I think many in Labour have been infected with the disease of identity politics which I despise, I want freedom to criticise religion which Labour opposes with its definition of islamaphobia, I am worried that its manifesto spending commitments are unachievable and would do real damage to the economy leaving the country less prosperous and therefore less able to care for the people that Labour purports to care more about, I think the ideological suggestions from Labour about giving unions back power and encouraging strikes are a really bad idea that will disrupt the economy, I am appalled by some of the stuff I read last week about the very real anti semitism problem, I have a problem with many in labour who hate the nation state and whilst I acknowledge some of the negatives of colonialism, I don't think we should be teaching the evil past of the United Kingdom out of context which semmobgly is what Labour want to introduce. As someone with a daughter, I am concerned by the noises they have made about supporting the gender recognition act which would effectively abolish what a woman is and allow anyone to change the sex on their birth certificate just by saying they, want to. Finally, their policy on brexit is confused and is essentially a way to put a stop to brexit whilst pretending to be democratic about it which I consider to be duplicitous. Sorry I couldn't be more positive but it's not that sort of election.

Though its not as straightforward as Labour vs. Conservative (or even centre-left vs far left) with Brexit cutting across traditional divides. Would you vote for Labour if it was led by David Miliband on the platform of a second referendum? I somehow doubt it.

I have considered voting Tory for the first time, having previously voted Labour or Lib but generally see myself as pretty "centre ground". Mainly it's due to my increasing dislike of "the left" as I see it, in party politics and within wider society. I ask myself whether it is the left that has changed or is it that my position has shifted rightwards, and my views become "more Conservative" as I have aged. I also don't see capitalism as a dirty word and think a low interest, low regulation economy is good for business and for people who want to work.

Probably not because I consider a second referendum to be undemocratic but if brexit were not a factor I could see myself doing that.

Yes, of course. Labour should be doing much better against the most inept government in living memory. No arguments from me in that respect. That's one of the reasons I find myself so exasperated with the current situation, because Johnson should never have been allowed to get even remotely near number 10, let alone in a position where he could/probably will win a GE. Corbyn clearly polarises opinions, and everybody knows that you have to appeal to the centre ground to win a GE.

If you think not having my finger on the pulse means not voting for the side most likely to win then I'll wear that badge with pride. I vote with my conscience, and that conscience tells me that I would sooner shoot myself in the head than ever vote for a cesspit of corruption and elitism, lead by that f*cking imbecile Johnson.

Maybe a good example of democracy would be for the PM to actually listen to the concerns of the elected representatives of the people and put a detailed Brexit deal to the electorate to decide?

I really don't think it's helpful to go round and round rehashing the brexit arguments again, I was simply answering the question from shurlock. If brexit were not a factor and there was a decent leader in charge of labour with some sensible policies then I would probably vote for them.

This is pretty much the opposite of what I asked about. I've seen you and batman post page after page of anti labour stuff, so I've understood you don't like them. However you both make it clear you are choosing to vote conservative, so I would love to hear what you like about them at the moment. I don't see one good thing you've said about them, but it would be an interesting perspective. We'll take"I don't like labour" as read, so just say what makes the conservatives worth voting for.
