    Victory by only 60 to 70 over Jezza would be seen as a defeat.
    100 minimum victory is required.

    She's having a shocker. An absolute shocker. People are now getting to see and hear Corbyn and finding he's not as bad as the media have been telling them he is. And he's delivering a compelling message along with a genuinely radical manifesto that seems to offer a lot of answers to their problems. Labour are also using social media far better and engaging young people who previously haven't been registered to vote.

    Meanwhile she's coming over really badly, wooden, spouting meaningless slogans and offering nothing.

    Tories will probably still win but she may not have a much bigger majority than she has now. Then the knives will be out for her and Boris will have one in each hand.

    100+ seat majority would probably see Corbyn out of a job. Might see Labour regain its senses

    Why win one election when you can win the next one at the same time?

    Sorry to break it to you, but a lot of people are quite happy to work without 'supposed' workers rights and have no problem with Zero hour contracts etc as it can suit their lifestyle and gives them a 'choice' of how & when to work.
    Gordon Brown & co waged a constant war against temporary workers, contractors & the self-employed for years, and Corbyn & co want to dish up more of the same going off their manifesto.
    Seems like they are going to try force as many people as they can to become trade union lead employees, by introducing as much tax & red tape as they can to a whole sector of the work-force.
    For that reason i can't vote Labour while they try force this ideology onto people, whilst claiming it's for their benefit, when those people don't want it in the first place.

    We don't often agree on here but that's a disgrace. If your grandparents had pissed their lives away, they'd have paid nothing.

    As I read the current situation, you can pass a £425k estate on without incurring a penny of Inheritance Tax. Double that to £850k for a married couple. But if one of you is stricken by dementia, that same estate could get robbed of £750k. In effect they've simultaneously ramped up death tax on the poorly while reducing it for the healthy.

    How the fcuk is this "Tories moving to the left"? It stinks and I'm amazed there hasn't been a bigger backlash.

    Anyway, they have lost my vote. That'll teach the bastards.

    You telling me she's actually trying to engineer a victory by a certain number of seats?Come on mate.
    The danger for her is that the Tories have invested everything in this campaign in her character and personality. Public opinion on that can change quickly with potential huge shifts in the polls.
