Boris would crush Corbyn in a GE and Labour know it.

Even Communist C4 News could not disguise the fact that a lot of Brits think Boris is actually trying to get Brexit done and it is Parliament frustrating things.

This opinion poll would have been before all the argy bargy in the House of Commons on Wednesday.
Im waiting to see an opinion poll taken after it.
Im reckoning it will give Boris an election boost.
The opposition were going mad about Boris banging on about "surrender" to the EU. This faux outrage from Labour belied the fact that the real reason Labour was unhappy is that the "surrender" image will hit home with the electorate.
They know that when they are on the campaign trail some time later this year they will hear that verb over and over as people ask them to attempt to explain why it is a good idea to continue to pay the EU a billion a month in order to not leave the EU in accordance to the biggest electorate mandate the country has ever seen.

Labour are talking about Boris 'stoking up fear' and 'ratchetting things up' in advance of a GE.

They are just shyteing it at the prospects of facing the public after stabbing them in the back for 2 years.

People like Jess Phillips and Yvette Cooper would be typical of this sort of whingeing.

The 1st past the post system in TUKOGBANI means that the party with the most votes in a constituency takes the seat.

That skews Opinion Polls much more than here where the distribution of seats is [while by no means perfect] much more representative of public opinion than the UK model.

When Mr & Mrs Smith get to the polling station they know that voting with your heart rather than your head can mean

- you might have well have not bothered voting at all....🤢

Cant remember which one but I recall the Right Honourable Margaret Thatcher going into a General Election and making it clear to voters that there was either going to be a Conservative or a Labour Government...

- which one do you want?

In other words voting for the Liberals risks letting the Reds back into No 10...

I cant see either Brexit or the Lib/Dems getting anything like a number of seats that reflects their standing in the opinion polls....

though the Brexit party can wreak havoc on Tory seats by splitting the Brexit vote. Though this is no more than the Tories deserve for their messing about with Brexit. You see the Tories warning that a vote for TBP is a vote for Caracas Corbyn, but really who cares what Corbyn does when the referendum can be ignored.
