So, a 5 point gap in the polls two weeks before the election

Almost exactly the same gap there was two weeks before the election in '97

A fine article here on how the figures may end up working out.

This is gonna be a fucking grim summer for some of you lads if you start wetting your pants whenever a rival signs a good player. Its gonna happen, deal with it.

Yep, it's really weird, half these signings people panic over turn out shit anyway, all that worry for nothing! I still remember the absolute chaos on here when Chelsea signing the apparently incredible Marko Marin!  ;D

Which might be why you're getting the reaction you're getting. There's 97 pages of this thread - in which a handful of posters occasionally accuse others of being 'Tory lite' etc. And yet almost everyone posting in it is voting Labour. Many are Labour members and are campaigning for Labour. So when someone pops in and mixes some familiar (and ultimately simplistic) StW/Momentum stuff with familiar references to devout Tories, then yeah, that will get a reaction.


simplistic - behave.

That's what they're saying in the Telegraph. Just another "anti-" from Labour. The BBC version "Foreign Policy must reduce threat" is much better as it outlines a better way of doing things.

Particularly as, as the Guardian analysis above puts it, May has never used the term and has already said that 'failed policies (i.e. interventions) of the past" are over.

I think that Keita has very much agreed to the move. That is why we are so confident of getting him.

I was looking for you to expand and explain your own position, that's all. Because I don't see that it works, logically. And I'm far from a Tory - I was on the Stop the War marches against intervening in Iraq and I do think it was a mistake (and one that contributes to radicalisation).

But I think the left/StW has got itself into a terrible mess with it's focus on opposing Islamophobia, to the extent that it completely fails to comprehend radical Islamism - to the extent of citing interventions as the primary cause. The Manchester bombing, I believe, is the clearest example yet of the error in that line of thinking - and the broad left needs to come up with better ideas, or the argument really will become dominated by those who think the solution is mass expulsions of Muslims.
Islamophobia is the biggest load of bollocks I have heard. Lacking in reason.

Once again it was a little bit of light hearted sarcasm.

I have no idea who anyone votes for other than yourself.

Think this'll be my last visit this year . Wasn't going to bother , but ended up deciding on just the Saturday .

Expensive tickets for waht it is , rip off expensive VIP tickets ( to get access to decent facilities that you should get anyway ) , expensive food and drink prices ( on a par with other festivals though ) , Headline acts who had their heyday a long time ago.

Ah well , weather's looking good so will make the most of it .
