Today, I have been thinking about last Thursday.
And I want all sides to read this..
Process it..
And draw your own conclusions.
This is not “lefty tears”.
Nor is it “typical remoaner”.
Read on..

Think back to last summer.
#Maybot resignation.
#Conservatives have a leadership election.
Tory #leave get their candidate #Johnson
That’s the Stall set out.
It begins..
The “die in a ditch” sound bite.
Four losses at #meaningfulvote
Twenty one expelled Tory #remain.

Expulsions.
Defections.
#Greave
#TIG
#LibDems taking Tory overspills.
Parliament is shook, but it isn’t finished yet troops.
#c4news starts to creep into being partisan.
The BBC go full on.
#Peston sells his soul to Diablo.
A corporate takeover.

I now have the 3 election flyers for Bournemouth West. Every election I get frustrated by the deceit and disinformation in them. So I’ve decided to take a look in detail at the numbers and claims. @ConorBurnsUK @CllrSimonBull @JonNicholas2017 @dave4bmthwest Thread: 1/13
First up @ConorBurnsUK and his claims about how great we have had it for the last 9 years. Lots of big, impressive sounding numbers but no sources, methodology or details.
The economy is 19% bigger than in May 2010.
19% sounds quite large but when you consider that is less than 2% growth per year the Conservatives really shouldn’t be saying this is good. For reference, world GDP growth is at about 3%.

1/Listening to the C4 Con leadership debate.

All “delivering Brexit”

#Gove. Opened his mouth and lost the first Q
#Stewart. Cleverer response “listened to Corbyn yadda”
#Raab. Kept his voice lower but Blah.
#Javid Same but at least talking about addressing issues.
#Hunt. Same
2/. Politics of fear re Corbyn.

Really pretty wet.

Hope it improves.
3/. #Raab didn’t deliver because resigned as a matter of principle.

This is reallyrather tragic.

At least #Stewart is saying they cannot reopen the WA and challenging #Raab on the HOW?

Especially HOW in No deal.

#Raab really is remarkably dim.

FWIW, here are my subjective rankings of the #ToryLeadershipContest #tax cut proposals. (This is a personal view only - I don’t have a dog, or even a vote, in this fight.) In reverse order… (1/6)
No. 5 (i.e. last). Reform #VAT and replace with a sales tax (#Gove). Bad economics. VAT is a relatively efficient tax and the current system already allows the UK gov’t to set lower rates for some goods and services to help the poor. #Brexit will increase this flexibility. (2/6)
No. 4. Raise the threshold for paying the top rate of income tax (#Johnson). Neither one thing nor the other? Won’t actually make much difference to those earning just above the old threshold, or any difference to those who earn a lot less. (3/6)
