I think the lib dems will be hoping to be not be put in a situation like the Yougov poll is predicting where a coalition can be formed with the 10 or so MP's they are predicted to get are crucial. As if they refuse to form a coalition, a government is likely to be forced back to yet another election where they would be likely to sustain further losses. Rock and a hard place.

this is an interesting thesis.

i wonder if you agree with it?

Election Data‏ @election_data

As I've said all along, unwinding the instinctive negative emotional judgement on Corbyn (which is by now hard-wired) is implausible

I've tested it. The negativity towards Corbyn is of an emotional scale and intensity which is unprecedented in such research.

Corbyn loyalists regularly express intense, emotive, barely rational hostility about Conservatives. The prob is that's what many voters feel re: Jez.

So any policy stuff fails to cut through, they dislike the man




Absolutely, my political leanings have always been slightly left of centre and my social media bubble reflects this. So I see quite a lot from Corbyn loyalists and when one of the problems is the contempt that some to seem to hold towards anyone who doesn't believe the same.

I am exactly the type of voter they need, I like a lot of the policies about a fairer society but have issues with Corbyn's ability to enforce comptently. Also as a remainer I feel that Corbyn was next to useless in the referendum and a clearer pro remain campaign from Labour could have changed the result. I move next month to the Croydon central constituency, conservative majority less than 200 over labour in 2015, my vote in most elections would be a big one to get.

Bit late to the party but yeah I went from doing no exercise about 3 years ago to now running regularly. The couch to 5k program is excellent and is great way of easing yourself into it, instead of pushing too fast too soon and injuring yourself or demotivating yourself as it is too hard.

Pity you are not near a parkrun as they are brilliant events and a very non judgemental environment for getting out and exercising.

Hi, shows how far behind I am on blonde. Just decided to look at my replies to topics I posted in and found this.

Yeah not been about much, quit poker about a year ago, eventually the curve caught up with me and the online games were just miserable. Had a good run, but it has been eye opening trying to get back in the real world. Moving down to London with the other half in a couple of months, so all change.

I guess the most famous and memorable, would be the Shane Warne ball to Gatting at Old Trafford. My mum's side of the family are all from the area and my Grandad was a huge cricket fan but had 3 daughters who were not interested in the slightest, so when I showed an interest in the game from an early age we would go to the Test Match every year up there. It was one of the first years they had TV screens in the ground, so as is often the case at the cricket you are not entirely sure what had happened at such a distance but the gasp that went round the ground when the replay was shown was probably the most memorable thing. Of course it's signficance became greater over the years as Warne proved to be probably the best spinner the game had ever seen.

I imagine you have already struck Sunbury off the list, but my gf has lived there for the last 18 months and it is absolute sod to get to, close to an hour on a train that stops everywhere. Plus it really isn't that nice unless you go to Lower Sunbury near the Thames but that is even a harder public transport trip.

any value in betting Pence at a huge price?

Unless I am missing something this is the chance of Trump dying before the inauguration, right?

Trump gone face on betfair, bloody hell. Clinton was 1.1 less than 2 hours ago.

I was hoping I might be able to got to bed not too late, hmmm this is getting close. Betfair now have it closer than they have all night.

Hillary shortening significantly on betfair in last 10 minutes, trump trailing in Florida and North Carolina is big.

what channel is everyone watching the results on?

CNN

Yeah I have found CNN best for previous us elections and got the five thirtyeight live blog up. I like my election nights with results and analysis especially early on.

Visiting Sheffield this weekend and have  tried to do the Hallam one a while back during a previous visit but snow stopped play so looking forward to having a  go this time.

Any Blondes running this one?

Steve

I ran Hallam earlier in the year, it is right near the student area of Sheffield which brought back memories for me. It would be quick if it didn't get such big number 700+ the day I went and the course just isn't wide enough for that so you end up following a lot.

In fact I have done all the Sheffield ones if you want any more advice, Hallam is the flattest of them all.

There's one about 3 miles from my house. I'd like to try do one of these

Do it!

I warn you a lot of people find it addictive. I have been at a parkrun every Saturday morning this calendar year apart from one weekend.

London and a few of the major cosmopolitan cities have got to be very heavily remain for them to win ?


Very much so, the big question is how much does the North East reflect the rest of the country? It has shown different swings in general elections to the rest of the country.

Obviously good results for leave so far.
