05:12: Just saw that 69% of votes in Peterborough were postal ballots. Labour were “oddly” confident, eh, going in? Uh huh.
I’ve gone back and asked. Shall report. I see another one saying 20%.
OK, found the comments thread – 69% of those asked voted postal, making 48% all up. It would be interesting to know what that means, it would be interesting to know the actual figures – I have no confidence they’ll be correct.
03:58: Woke up, it was as indicated, 31% to 29%, everyone will claim what they’ll claim.
Stitch up? Let’s just say the Labour machine, here and in the States, also in other countries under the various names, does not play by the book. Thinking teamsters union, Tammany Hall, the shenanigans more openly done these days – the postal voting scam where head of a household votes for the 20 in the family, the legalising of illegals, the complicity of the authorities – all these are factors.
Trump’s trashing of Khan and snubbing of Corbyn? Didn’t affect postals, might have affected turnout. I’ve spoken with some of those on our side who refuse to vote and while the electoral system has been debased all right, nothing will ever happen through revolution in this country – victims will mouth obscenities, then roll over, asking for “more please”.
It might well be us – we represent the “angry old men” syndrome the enemy plays to the limit. Even though a large number of supposed AOM are good women.
The gay factor can wreck any political advances. It’s so corrosive, so associated with wholesome and good in lost people’s brains, what can one do? Chick Fil A might succeed in the States but there are just as many sucked in by the whole tranny, paedo, gender pronoun, faux sportswomen, passive aggressive, safe space, anti-Muslim thing.
They apparently adore the early morn till evening caterwaulng through the tannoys.
It’s where the dissonance is a cacophony and so people go tribal again.
Did the cleancut turquoise army succeed? Yes – among the respectable. How many still in the community? 29%? The sort who have allotments and shop at Waitrose or Lidl?
Major factor is that TBP has no plan to become govt, no practical set of policies they can implement. The anti-EU tsunami does not translate well into Westminster – let’s just give Boris a chance, people think.
Nigel himself is not universally loved, that grin is unfortunate, the relentless character assassination never ceases on him, from the media to the street – it does take its toll. He doesn’t help himself with his womanising and taking of the EU shekel in their eyes.
They’re starting on Boris now – flip flop Boris, Gove positioning himself to Remain.
That’s about it for now.
00:23: Zonked, last update – Labour confident – high turnout and postal votes.
00:03: Arron Banks mentions the corrupt postal voting.
23:20: Some moments ago, a Labour person was spitting invective at the BP – who knows?
Let’s assume Labour hold the seat and anything different would be a nice surprise. Also today was Bercow on No Deal.
What we’ve got here is a failure to see reality by just about everyone. It was concerning me that the BP campaign seemed much like any other rosette wearing party, things were said in the media, I thought oh no, this is looking too self-congratulatory, maybe I was wrong, hope I was.
But tribal Labour is truly worrying, given Corbyn’s egregious behaviour, the failure of anyone to call him out. I see the biz about no turquoise manifesto, esp. in a parliamentary election, I spoke with people who are down on Corbyn but will still vote Labour.
Astounding. Why, I ask? The Tories are rubbish, I’m told.
And what? There are other parties.
Maybe, yeah, the Lib Dems.
I didn’t mean them.
Oh, you mean the fascists?
Ok, let’s see what happens.
22:50: Leaving aside the England loss in the football, also the Danes putting the socialists back in power, looking just at Peterborough, getting mixed messages here.
Britain Elects says it appears Labour has held.
