    The official regulator thing was bullshit though. They were setting up privately funded regulators getting money from Max Mosely and the like.

    It's also bullshit that everybody knows that there's a problem and despite the findings of the inquiry to date being available the decision is just to ignore it. Nothing has changed, has it?

    @simpleexplodingmaybe I googled the Conservative manifesto. Both Labour AND the Lib Dems had sponsored ads and the actual Tory manifesto is about halfway down the page.

    In other news, latest Ipsos MORI poll puts Labour up 8 points, at 34 to the Tory's 49. This obvious *before* today's manifesto announcement. Other parties fading in to the background.

    Interesting to see what it does to the labour surge. I think I read that most of it was down to young voters going to labour.

    It's likely to be overestimated and, even if not, it's going to be concentrated in metropolitan areas.

    Fascinating that the Liberal centre looks like being wiped out.

    Lib Dems made a fatal error it putting a second referendum front and centre. Nobody wants that

    Lib Dems made a fatal error by bothering in a FPTP system.

    I do.  I have had two party representatives knock on my door.  I asked both do they want brexit and when they said yes I told the cunts to fuck off and slammed the door.

    Not all of us just accept the country going to shit due to a few idiots and racists.

    And yes.   I know a few turns out to be half the fucking country.

    I've been noticing this past week on BBC comments that the top rated ones aren't all right-wing lunacy as usual, some left-wing lunacy has been popping up as well.

    Really though? What do you think it will achieve?

    Polling shows that a significant number (just under half) of those that voted to remain now feel we should honour the decision to leave.

    I know that what they're technically offering is a referendum on the deal of the deal for us to leave, but as that is a one time offer we're basically just asking the same question again. And that's assuming the EU gives us that option.

    I'd support their idea to remain in the customs union and the single market, but a second referendum is a daft option imho. It won't achieve anything.

    I thought they were giving us a referendum on the deal that is agreed? If we do not like what our government, whomever it may be, bring back from the negotiating table then what is wrong with saying go back and try and get something better?

    I would vote for a party offering a second ref. Done properly and with safe guards. Driving off a cliff on a couple point difference is as retarded as voting Tories.

    Love that Nicola Sturgeon rebuttal to Nuttal, she didn't shy away from pointing out the demographic issues Scotland faces, and by extension we all face.

    Corbyn was on radio 2 today and was quite good. I'm generally impressed by him whenever I hear him speak to be honest. Makes you wonder where Labour would be if he got fair representation in the media. I struggle to see what's so bad about him to be honest.

    It'll be interesting to see what happens in the polls over the next week. Initial reception of the Tory manifesto is pretty negative, as far as I can see.

    Makes it easier for them to pull a "we'll make a compromise to keep people happy".

    Not sure. Lots of MPs apparently unhappy that May has lurched to the left (laughably).

    Well weirdly they seem to be attacking their key demographic with the social care policy. But what seem like a problem to some is a way to privitise old age for them I guess. Remains to be seen how much it will damage them. I don't have much faith in the voting public.

    Seems like there's going to be one hell of an increase in Fracking if the tory manifesto is anythiong to go by:

    I wish I could vote for Nicola Sturgeon's party. I think she's great.

    Another referendum would be pointless. Even a bad deal would get voted for. There simply isn't the numbers or political to oppose Brexit.

    Which is a shame, as it's clearly a terrible idea that's going to make us all poorer, both financially and philosophically.

    This ITV leaders debate is telling me one main thing. The left parties need to get over themselves and work together.

    I'd love Nicola Sturgeon to be PM of the UK, but that will never happen.

    I am quite happy with the majority labour's, lib dems', green's and snp's polices. They disagree in few places and have very similar solutions for many of the ills created by the Tory government. But whilst they are so fractured I have little hope...

    Reminds me of lyrics by Frank Turner "idiot fucking hypies fighting in 50 different factions".

    Apart from Nuttall, all did ok tonight.
    Importantly, they all came across as reasonably decent people that do give a shit about the less fortunate but idiot Britain is going to vote in the fucking Tories and their evil fucking manifesto and Brexit incompetence.

    The Mail loved the manifesto
