  • Ben Austin,

    In electoral news, yesterday 4PM was the deadline for candidate nomination, so the news is now full of amusing stories of crazy candidates or incompetent local parties who didn't file in time.

    More seriously, the Times today reports that the Conservative Party central HQ have managed to filter out a lot of the hard core EuroSceptics from new candidate selection. This being pretty big news as quite a few people retire at each election and of course due to IMMINENT LANDSLIDE a lot of new people might get in. Which would be slightly encouraging from an outsider's view if at least the parliamentary Conservative Party didn't go full Ultra Brexitteer.

  • Rich of Observationz,

    Looking at recent polls, reports of the demise of Labour seem to be a bit premature.

  • Ben Austin,

    Well, quite. Although there is a lot of speculation that a lot of the stabilising in support will largely end up stacking votes in safe Labour areas, not marginals.

    ...although an increase in overall vote share/turnout for Labour over the 2015 Miliband result might get the Blairite haterz and wreckerz to STFU. For a day or two.

  • John Palethorpe,

    The 2005 victory was reliant on the Liberal Democrats polling their highest ever, around 20% or so. They won't do that this time round.
