Credit ratings agency Moody’s changes outlook on UK’s (Aa2) rating from stable to negative. Pretty damning release says Brexit has been a catalyst in an “erosion in institutional strength” which is now seriously undermining faith in the UK

just as well no party is planning to borrow a lot at now higher cost then.....

Underlying the Moody’s outlook cut is a worry that essentially both major UK political parties have pretty much given up on fiscal prudence.

Boris Johnson has a better job rating among Lib Dems than Jeremy Corbyn.  Sadly that will be a big limiting factor on LD-Lab tactical voting.

Net "doing well /badly" as PM / Lab leader - DeltaPoll, 6-9 Nov, LIB DEM VOTERS

Johnson -49
Corbyn -68

If people have already switched to the Lib Dems from Labour then there's little compelling reason to want to vote tactically for them.  Chances are there's a fundamental issue with continuing to support Labour that caused the switch.

The outcome will be more dependent on those who haven't yet moved away from supporting Labour, and the extent to which they do so in the campaign.  The polled group are pretty much lost, in that regard.

Farage announces the Brexit Party won’t stand in any of the 317 Tory held seats.

Price on a Tory majority immediately moved from 1.75 to 1.5, with a hung parliament drifting.

This may not help get a Tory majority as much as the price move suggests - to get the majority the Tories need to win the Labour held marginals, and enough of them to offset the loss of seats in Scotland, and Farage’s decision does not help that. It may actually hurt it as Farage explicitly aligning with the Tories may put off ex-Labour voters who would otherwise vote Brexit.

Farage’s decision protects against Labour making ground, but that was unlikely anyway.

If you have any thoughts of liking a hung parliament then now is the time to bet.

This is a very good post.  My thoughts were very similar.   The loss of Ruth D in Scotland is going to hurt the tories.  So many marginal gains elsewhere are going to be needed just to make up for Scotland losses.    How many marginal seats can the Tories keep which they only just held last time as well as hoovering up plenty more to get past the post.   Certainly doesn't look the shoe in people are suddenly talking about.

A Labour spokeswoman said the attack had "failed" because of the party's "robust security systems" and they were confident that no data breach occurred.

mind if I wanted to put pressure on govt to release report into Russian election interference, I'd claim there was a massive cyberhack attempt during this election as well Wink

I'm not suring no attack happened, as I'm sure someone tries every minute or so, just that I reckon there'll be very few verifiable details about the scale in the coming days.
