Kerrs Pinks = potatoes. Potatoes are used to make potato scones (baking).
Reiver = raider [reiver sounds like river] River is water
Carrs bake water biscuits
Do I win a prize?
******* hell, that is some fantastic mental gymnastics for a Friday night....thought about joining Corbyns team yet?
 
You don't have to like or vote for either. That's the point.

There are a fair few here bemoaning the dire political standards and the flawed political system of this country, but who are quite content to collaborate with it and perpetuate it.

If you are content to merely settle for the least worst option, they've got you by the balls.
How does this relate to an old story about Johnson if not for some minor point scoring ?
 
It's not bad for a Saturday either. Thanks but no chance.
**** me you are right, Saturday.....it must be the Whiskey diet I am on....lost 3 days already. ( with a nod to the late great Tommy Cooper).
 
15 points

Opinium were well out in 2017. They might not be out now but I don't believe the Tories are 15% ahead.

Opinion polls are almost always out towards the left for any election - Clinton, Brexit, Labour. Take them and move about 5% to the right if you want a real indication.
 
Why did Boris decline the leaders ITV interviews? All the other leaders took part.
Reference Boris interview.....

Without stating the obvious, It's the Andrew Neil interviews that the socialists & the msm are getting in a froth about.

#carcrashcorbyn was trending on SM for a reason, Jezza got his Arrse handed to him & the left want to see Boris getting then same treatment.

I am reminded of Tony Blair's landslide, 20 years on and it is hard to find anybody in my local who will admit to voting for him. Many labour types are not happy with Corbyn but are keeping their thoughts to themselves.....a bit of a reversal of the "shy conservative" thing.

For some reason the Conservatives are shy about trumpeting things that Labour would be all over...record employment and apparently the UK is shooting back up the PISA tables amongst other things
 
That seems to indicate a true member of the 'system', hopping from post to post.

The daughter of a friend has, for several years, been a Civil Servant since her postgrad stuff at university. Since becoming a CS the young lady has worked with the Treasury, seconded to the NHS, Defra, the Cabinet Office and has run various projects. And is now on a sabbatical to join her husband in Africa prior to a move to Northern Europe. This particular lady is in her early thirties and finished university education at the age of 22.

It leaves me with the impression that the Civil Service is the ideal place for many to "swan" toward retirement.

So how many years, and how many postings, did you have during your service career?

From what I’ve seen & heard the Tories are more focused on avoiding repeat mistakes which May did on her appalling attempt.

The fact that Labour want to campaign to remain (ignore the result like SNP & Libdems) has already lost them 5 million Leave supporters, for No10, its damage limitation that Boris team primary aim until 12th Dec is done.

That's what I don't like and leads me to believe that Conservatism is still a dirty word in the Conservative party.

Hmmm. Last election had TM out in front by some 14 or 15 points (until the last couple of days and that was only one poll). Just a month before, Tories were on 46% compared with Labour at 25% (look it up).
Betting on a 50 to 70 seat majority for the Tories was 20 to 1 on (or 1/20).
That was the election where the Labour lot under Corbyn was going to be confined to the dustbin of history.

All worked out well then.

Just don't get complacent. Tories should win this next one with an increased majority but, as shown with other elections (and the referendum) people vote to give the front runners a bloody nose or show their resolve to give the favourites a kicking.
Voting for Labour (or Libs or Brexit) will not be "doing it the man".
Complacency and so-called "tactical" voting could cost the Tories dear and let Labour get more of an in than they have now which will be a disaster for the UK.
I don't, in any way, agree Brexit will be good for UK despite the fanatics on here. But keeping Corbyn out is the most important thing for the UK and this election should be about that.
Anyone voting other than Tory in this election (despite the buffoon in charge) will be doing the whole country a disservice.

Usually, but not this time I suspect.

I'm not sure that the polls are sufficiently sophisticated to pick up the specific nuances of individual seats where the Remain/Leave subtext is in play. I can see the Tories picking up lots of votes in northern England but not enough to win much if anything. I'm thinking it's going to be tight.
 
Opinion poll wise I believe yougov was quite accurate at the last election so that may be the one to watch.
