#poll If there was a Snap General Election, who would you vote for?

(For other parties, please vote them in comments)

Please RT once Voted! 😃
1997: Blair 13.5mn votes
1997-2015: Blairites/ Others lost 180 seats & 5mn voters
2017: Corbyn 12.8mn votes/ Gained 32


add first time voters (75% of those who vote, vote for Labour)

Subtract 2% of the population, 80% of whom vote Tories!

Labour Landslide on the cards!
Lab’s share of vote could be 14.5+mn

Once we take into account first time voters- 16 or under at 2017

first time voters -never voted before, disenchanted by Blair years whilst

removing Tory support -loss of voters due to old age

=> Lab will gain 100+ seats from Tories alone

THREAD: TMs Kamakazi End Game

She's the sacrificial lamb tasked w/ scaring parliament into either accepting a BRINO or relinquishing the gov of blame for a reversal of brexit (via the Cooper amendment).

They won't allow no-deal. It'd split the Tories & unlock socialism. 1/
They know theres only 2 ways to avoid no deal - bring down May w/ a GE or hold a rigged PV. They obvs want PV.

May had to promise to quit just to win a VoC. Tory party members r overwhelmingly leavers but Tory MPs r majority remain. They'll stop at nothing to steal the vote. 2/
Project Fear bombarded us w/ propaganda claiming ANY sort of brexit is armageddon.

JCs soft brexit CU plan is roughly equivalent to the EEA. Are Norway or Switzerland floundering? The remain obsessed establishment overplayed its hand. Their focus is to prevent a JC gov. 3/

THREAD: My journey into the polite, efficient belly of the beast @ BBC

I'd been asked to contribute a homemade video for #VictoriaLIVE a few months ago but it didn't get used.
This time they wanted me in the studio to talk #LabourSplit. It was a surreal experience. 1/
Phone interview night b4 w/ a nice man. Good Qs & I gave a good account of the left.

Why join Labour?
-socialisms back
-parliament stealing vote
-EU corrupt
-JCs CU has a majority
-no, many reasons
-to stop #JC4PM2019
-not since Pete Willsman
Etc 2/
I'd been waiting a few hours for that phonecall while at work. I missed one on silent & began to worry I'd missed the boat! Would they just go down a list of phone numbers & use whoever answered first?

When the call came it was a portal thrown open. 3/

Dear @jeremycorbyn
You have inspired this ex-Tory voter, not only to become interested in politics but also to become a passionate activist within the Labour Party.
Who knew, I was always a Socialist but didn't know it?
Thanks for all the likes, RTs and positive comments.
If you're curious to know how my Damascene moment came about, I wrote about it for @skwawkbox back in 2017.…

Brexit came from nearly 40 years of Tory governments, with a Tory lite respite, beating people down and keeping wealth amongst themselves.

It came from schools being picked apart and sold to the highest bidder. Now our education system is made up of academy's ran by businesses.
It came from making it harder to obtain further education, inflating tuition prices extortionately, and for those coming out the other side there's simply nothing to put that expensive degree to use.
It came from British industries being sold off to countries like China, leaving thousands of steel workers, automotive workers, factory's of various sizes, without work. Pushing them into a benefit system...

After 2.5 years of wanting to stop #brexit I have in theast half hour converted to the leftwing case for #Brexit as the best way to achieve a socialist future and set out my reasons in this thread #leavernow #lexiternow
It is clear to me that the EU is a corporate playground and neoliberal cabal one only needs 2 compare US and EU standards of animal welfare & food safety 2 see how true this is chlorinated chicken is the food of the Lexitariat #leavernow #lexiternow #Brexit #JC4PM2019
I believe that the evil EU has stopped the fraternalist tory party from implementing the Scandinavian social model as practised in Sweden Finland and Denmark and believe that they will pursue the doctrine of socialism in one percentile #Brexit #lexit #JC4PM2019
