Weekend Vox Pop: which party has made the stupidest mistake of the election so far, and what was it?

What do you think? I want to hear from you!

Which UK political party has made the biggest fool of itself in the 2019 general election campaign so far?

Was it the Conservative Party? Labour? The Liberal Democrats? Plaid Cymru? The SNP? The Greens? The DUP? Sinn Fein, even?

And what was their error?

Already you have a huge number of cringeworthy gaffes from which to choose.

Please respond using the comment column and I’ll publish some results over the weekend.

    It’s such a difficult choice, so many idiotic statements to choose from, but perhaps both James (not-so-clever) Cleverly AND Jo Swinson deserve a mention as they have both made entirely false allegations that there is a big problem with antisemitism in the Labour party and that Jeremy Corbyn is somehow at fault in that, all of which can very easily be disproved by a simple analysis of evidence to the contrary. I don’t know if Cleverly and Swinson are idiots or if they take us for idiots. But then of course there is bonkers Boris, Upper Class Twit of the year, who doesn’t even have to try to be a an absolute clown at any point in time and under any circumstances, election campaign or otherwise.

    Three biggest mistakes coming to mind so far are all by the Conservative party:
    1)The Grenfel gaffe – victims of a tragic fire, essentially caused by inadequate fire safety regulation, lacked “common sense”, doubled down by another Tory MP, defending such an abhorrent comment by saying it demonstrate a high level of intelligence of the person who made the comment in the first place, and therefore that explains why he is in the position he holds;

    2) The Conservative party caught spreading fake news, posting on social media a clip of an interview of their opponent, deliberately edited to make him sound like he did not answer a question that he actually & coherently answered;

    3) Building their election campaign on “Britain deserves better” when they’ve been in power for the last 9 year, clearly not realising that such a statement is in fact a criticism of themselves.

    Bojob’s re-interpretation of the Withdrawal Agreement saying no border checks.

    I would have suggested that he went to Specsavers but he was already seen there at a photo “mop-ortunity”

    Bozzo in a shop in Matlock yesterday tickling the flood water with a mop for a photo op. I bet they were really pleased to see him – not

      Agreed Jed. I was wondering what happened to the army over the last couple of days, there’s supposedly thousands of troops on standby to prevent riots & looting if and when Brexit ever happens, but nowhere to be seen when sandbags needed to be distributed, river banks needed shoring up, people need rescuing or evacuating, whilst much of Yorkshire and Derbyshire was deluged. And who turns up? Boris with a mop.

  5. CMG

    Left-field, but I’m calling the Green Party for joining the Best for Britain shenanigans. Everything they have worked for should scream that the next five years are the absolute last chance to change our ways as a nation and a global community to prevent mass extinction. The likelihood of another inconclusive result would surely also put PR back on the agenda after an election where they could poll well. Yet they have been suckered into dropping dozens of candidates to make way for pro-fracking, pro-status quo Lib Dems in the faint hope of picking up a seat or two at the expense of sympathetic Labour MPs like Thangam. A ridiculous waste of millions of people’s second-choice party.
