There has been little exhortation from the political class to just go out and vote. They are quietly appealing to their diehard support and hoping the rest will stay at home. They dread a high turnout because it those who did not previously vote carry the threat of a good showing for the Brexit Party and UKIP.

Corbyn insults the poor with promises of handouts. They have not forgotten the price they paid for the last Labour government handouts to the Bankers and middle classes after the Credit Crunch. The lifting of means test criterion to protect the savings of the newly unemployed middle classes, while maintaining them for the already unemployed working class.
Poor people know who pays later for concessions now.

It is looking like a weak Conservative government ushering in BRINO on the lament that their Remain faction gave them no option. Boris is not a leader. None of them are.

Ella wants a reasoned and calm debate about terrorism, based on her ruling out longer sentences or capital punishment, and in the next breath she talks about censorship.

Good luck Mr O’Neill with rehabilitating Muslim terrorists. Happy for them to live next door to you? And the child molesters on the other side?

A laughable broadcast by Ella Whelan who thinks TERRORISTS SHOULD NOT GET THE DEATH PENALTY. These Spiked Online guys often claim to support public views that are at variance with those of the elite – but in the end they come down on the elite side of every issue. OF COURSE, USMAN KHAN SHOULD HAVE BEEN HANGED. Why is this even a question?
