#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

2019:

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: JCs unwinnable game

So, in line with the Labconf18 motion, the party will back a PV amendment as a last resort IF Labour's deal falls AND May's passes without changes to her plan. There is much to be said for this widely misunderstood move. #Lexit #GTTO #NoPVYesGE 1/
Corbyn has never unilaterally dictated Labour's Brexit policy. Via much needed democratisation he empowered the party to decide, tho his campaign focused on the reforms the EU would need to make for it to be acceptible to a socialist UK gov. 2/
There are central pillars of the EU that favour capitalism over socialism so it seems unlikely it would ever reform enough to meet those requirements.
But remember JC came in on a 200:1 chance, surrounded by Neoliberals. He had to find a route thru the snakepit to power. 3/

Just leave this here...

For a People’s Vote, another divisive referendum

... there is no legitimacy
... there is no time
... there is no appetite
... there are more urgent issues

So can those advocating it just stop wasting time & diverting attention from real issue!

THREAD: right here's what I think is really going on with #Brexit:

May's game is move to a 2nd ref but blame Corbyn by havin all neolib forces pressure him to support it. then rig the vote while scaring us out of 'no deal' which is actually just 'brexit' - what we voted for 1/18
if the Tories adopt:
Lab Customs union deal = they split
No deal = they split
May's deal = they split
A people's vote = the country splits
this has been their plan all along: to forfeit country for party. to steal brexit. they do not want to leave. 'no deal' was a rebranding 2/19
Corbyn knows this & is bluffing May all the way to that cliff edge because actually he's got wings, & the freedom of a clean break will aid his program, free from EU spending caps or investment rules. he's far more willing to push this to the wire than May 3/19
