The Tory's control more than half of councils, nearly double Labour. Losing control of even half of them is unrealistic, and even if it happened under fixed term government I can all but guarantee it won't result in a General Election.
A Prime Minister calls a GE under two circumstances: 1) They are miles ahead in the polls and think they can increase their majority (as in 2017) 2) They have suffered a humiliating defeat or scandal.
Campaigning. A thread. ➡️➡️➡️While we spend another day (what is left to us after chatting endlessly about a #RoyalWedding), thrashing about over the Irish border, Customs Union & Single Market, my worry is not about what sort of brexit is being presented 1/n #stopbrexit
I doubt many are aware of the types & how that has unrolled. My worry as a campaigning #remain er is quite different. It is about the nature of the way in which we campaign, and how we reach people. 2/n😎
Some examples 1) We regularly call ordinary voters "stupid" - & direct anger at them. 2) Gather together in closed forums, mainly on Facebook & agree with each other. BIGLY. 3)Identify what is good about EU for us ( I mean me) & think it good or important for you too. 3/n 😬
