Corbyn’s u-turn: He WILL appear in leaders’ debate after all. Over to you, Theresa May…

Jeremy Corbyn has announced that he will appear on tonight’s election debate (BBC1, 7.30pm) after all – in his only u-turn of the election campaign. This Writer reckons it is a good move, wrong-footing certain newspaper writers who (falsely) claimed that both he and Theresa May had refused to appear. In fact, Mr Corbyn’s initial reluctance was only because Mrs May had already ruled out a direct confrontation. His change of heart means he will be able to face Conservative representative Amber Rudd and ask the question on everybody’s mind:…

BBC bias: ‘How to treat Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn’

This is very amusing, from Kevin Mckenna in The National: In view of what’s at stake in this election I’ve drawn up a list of suggestions on how we can subtly tweak the public consciousness to ensure that they don’t do anything silly. 1. When interviewing Theresa May sit forward attentively at all times and smile benignly. Tory Central Office have informed us that she is more likely to open up if she doesn’t feel threatened. On no account make any mention of the alleged electoral fraud involving a couple…

Tories are a danger to the NHS and our schools. Here are the reasons

Jeremy Corbyn put the spotlight on the National Health Service and schools – exposing facts that the Conservatives would rather hide behind a lot of Brexit-related posturing. In a speech today, Mr Corbyn laid out exactly what the Conservatives have been doing: 'Over the last 7 years @Conservatives have starved public services – it has to change' –@jeremycorbynhttps://t.co/G9UhY3Pa3M pic.twitter.com/3jA6Uvr3yb — Victoria Derbyshire (@VictoriaLIVE) May 31, 2017 And he told us what five more years of Tories would bring: [email protected] claims voting Tories would lead to5.5m on NHS waitlist1.5m unmet care…

Theresa May goes back to Brexit. This will not end well for her

Apparently, Theresa May is discarding her “strong and stable” cliche to spend the next eight days pretending to be the only party leader who can influence Brexit negotiations. Do you think that will work for her? Theresa May said Corbyn would be 'naked & alone' at Brexit negotiations. She is projecting her own weakness pic.twitter.com/84vdjC08I6 #GE2017 — Grassroots Voices (@GrassrootsJC4PM) May 31, 2017 No. Nor do I. In fact, this may be a good moment for a quick run-down (by which I mean, let’s run it into the ground) of…

Want to know why the papers are printing lies about Labour policies? Here’s the answer

Have you seen the front page of the Tory-loving Daily Mail? Here it is: And this is the front of the Daily Torygraph I mean Telegraph: And just for good measure, here’s a story from Mail Online: All these stories have one thing in common (as you can see from the stamp on the Mail Online piece: They are all false; not true. Fake news. Do you want to know why they are suddenly popping up? Here’s the reason: Tory papers all running with "secret plans" by Labour to do things they have not actually even thought of…

What will Tories do about the National Debt? They’ll make it WORSE

So much for the ‘party of economic competence’. In seven years, the Conservatives (admittedly, with their little yellow helpers the Liberal Democrats for the first five) have managed to more than double the National Debt, while cutting public services left, right and centre. Look at the policies in Theresa May’s ‘manifesto of misery’ (above). Based on your experiences of the last seven years, do you see anything in that list that is likely to reduce public debt? Anything at all? No. All you see are plans to push the “have-nots” and…

Role reversal: If Jeremy Corbyn had behaved like a Tory…

Some very good points are made in the following post, taken from Facebook (and I’ve added a few more, above). Please feel free to pass the message on to any Conservative voters you may know Here’s a thought: Say Jeremy Corbyn had been the Home Secretary for six years, during which time he slashed some 20,000 police jobs taking us back to 1970s levels of per capita policing. Let’s say he also slashed the UK Border Agency budget so that over a million people per month were coming and going…

Spoof election trailer contains some home truths

This is satire, but it does contain a few uncomfortable accuracies. For example: “Will you vote against your own best interests?” Anybody not earning more than £80,000 a year who votes Conservative will be doing just that. Join the Vox Political Facebook page.

If Jeremy Corbyn went ‘alone and naked’ into Brexit negotiations, he’d still be better-dressed than Theresa May

Theresa May is still lying to the public about the forthcoming Brexit negotiations. Her latest speech, today (May 30), included the following line: “Last night showed that Jeremy Corbyn’s minders can put him in a smart blue suit for an interview with Jeremy Paxman but, with his position on Brexit, he will find himself alone and naked in the negotiating chamber of the European Union.” Skipping over the clear indication that she is hurting after Corbyn’s thundering victory over her in the Paxman interviews/debate yesterday, the comment shows that Mrs…

BBC’s shame: Attack on Corbyn over Woman’s Hour interview is crushed by the public

That’s right. Jeremy Corbyn forgot the figures for Labour’s new childcare policy and the presenter of Woman’s Hour, Emma Barnett, barracked him mercilessly while he tried to look them up. Here’s what they were talking about: Our universal childcare plan will mean 30 hours free childcare a week for all two-four year-olds. RT ↓ #ForTheManypic.twitter.com/1ZvAKa1HgD — Peter Dowd (@Peter_Dowd) May 30, 2017 Since then, the BBC has run an article on its website (as have others), and there was a long segment on its Daily Politics programme. The public has picked up…
