Posted in: GOP embraces Trump after impeachment See in context

I am afraid Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, could well have effectively, pulled the Congressional/Senate rug right from under, U.S. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi feet.

I remember a nursery rhyme, as children we sang at kindergarten........

Oh, the grand old Duke of York,

He had ten thousand men,

He marched them up to the top of

The hill and he marched

Them down again.

And when they were up they were up.

And when they were down they were down.

And when they were only half way up,

They were neither up nor down.

U.S. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic-led House, could well succumb to the same fate. What a farce indeed.

I don’t believe that Jeremy Corbyn campaign could ever differentiate between dogmatic Ideology and the political, electoral realities of 21st century Britain…..   

The pretence in the belief that activism alone can overcome the powers of Government or office. Success at the ballot box effects change.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Friday that his government appeared to have won a powerful new mandate to get Brexit done.

The full results are not in.........

Yet Johnson, politically appears to be walking on water.

What next, water into wine? The ultimate five loafs and two fish’s moment?

Boris heals a man born blind? There has to be an opposition to a Johnson government.

Jimizo an exit poll is not a forgone conclusion, it is significant though, but the projected landslide, is frivolous, if not a tad precipitous.

Alfie Noakes, view FX market, the currency pair, the politics is irrelevant. If the correlation is correct the labour could be for want of a better word in trouble      

Labour Party will face a number of existential questions.  

Boris Johnson is a toxic moment in time.  An irrelevance.   

Sorry I do understand your ideologically. But one party will fall on stony ground. There is ultimately little social justice, but a frail balance between.........the have’s, and have nots.

Zichi,

To clarify, I fully support all British passport holders, UK resident or not, to have a voice in the UK democratic process, whether a General Election or referendum.

My comment, admitting it’s generality,  was not directed in any respect at passport holding non-UK residents that I feel have been subject to an act of gross betrayal/abandonment.

On Thursday 12 December 2019, polling stations will open at 7am (4pm Japan), and will close at 10pm (7am Friday 13th Japan) ……

A fifteen-hour window of opportunity to have a voice in possibly one of the UK's most Important Election in modern political history. Any member of the UK electorate who failed to register will now have to put up, or shut up.

Tactical voting in marginal constituencies, render the outcome impossible to predict.

The margin of error, YouGov mrp poll is tantamount to a wild guess.

https://yougov.co.uk/topics/politics/articles-reports/2019/12/10/key-findings-our-final-mrp-poll

Like all predictions our model comes with some uncertainty, and the margin of error here could put the final number of Conservative seats from 311 to 367. ........Going to bet your life savings?

Posted in: Boris Johnson faces toughest test in election See in context

Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson, could never, in a month of Sundays be mistaken for a working-class hero.

A more appropriate description would be, a charlatan flimflam chancer, a philanderer to boot.

A die-hard bounder and cad.

Jeremy Corbyn, the forever back bench activist. Leading the opposition, yet devoid of any notable qualities of leadership.

I frankly despise the politics of both.  

I have a vote, donated from a family member that is in a permanent state of political abstention.

So, I have decided to pass-on that vote to my 97 UK/Brighton based European/global colleagues/employees, through circumstance, are unable to democratically demonstrate a voice at the ballot box.

From the results of a secret ballot, the liberal democratic party has their vote. An unequivocal vote to remain in the European Union.

After all it is not I that has to necessarily live with the outcome, sitting from an armchair in Kochi/Nagoya.

Tactical voting, in key marginal seats could well prove pivotal to the Johnson majority.

I cannot envisage President Trump keeping schtum. The UK media will wind President Trump up like clock, the moment Trump steps off Airforce One.

And after? The tactical campaigning/voting groups and activist organisation, Momentum, Best For Britain, The Tactical vote, Campaign Together, More Unite etc etc will prime a thousand of volunteers to home in on social media. There is over 120 unpredictably volatile seat in England alone.

This is the overriding reason, Boris Johnson is running around like a headless chicken.

Posted in: Trump off to London for NATO summit, under pressure to steer clear of British election See in context

The average Electoral predicted defined probability, can be depicted within the Smartest betting average of a 69.2% Tory majority of between 40 and 54 seats.

However there are deal breaking scenarios where Dominic Raab, Iain Duncan Smith, Steve Baker, John Redwood, Philip Davies, Zac Goldsmith and Boris Johnson, could lose there seats. Yes that Boris Johnson Conservative Party leader.

There are also ten key marginals, Brecon and Radnorshire, Bolsover, Cheltenham, Hastings and Rye, Crewe and Nantwich Richmond Park, Newcastle-under-Lyme, Stirling, Ashfield, and Canterbury.

Then the key regions have to be factored in, South East and the Home Counties, Midlands and East Anglia, South West, Wales and the 59 seats in Scotland all identified by quantitative forecasting models as volatile.

Public opinion can change on a dally basis, clear evidence is various available polling averages.

So U.S. President Donald Trump intervention could be a key irritation factor politically.

Our policy is smart causal, we also have a clothing allowance to reflect/support that policy.

Customers and investors visit on a regular basis, visual impressions must reflect our high standards of product quality.

How you dress at work is way more important than you think........A vague and ambiguous statement. It provokes an assumption that Employees are oblivious to the importance of dress sense or appearance. Actually a tad insulting.
