    Thoughts on the UK general election

    What is the general consensus on the state of play in the election ?

    To my mind Corbyn has become a born again politician, even his arguments are sounding convincing, his honesty is getting through, where before it looked like naivety.
    May is looking like a conniving opportunist chancer.
    Shame about Abbott.

    In the land of the blind the one eyed man is king.

    I don't think Corbyn's ideas, insofar as I understand them, are even close to the best future for this country but they are better than a right wing led brexit. I think he offers solutions to long changed or irrelevant issues that might be some use here. At least he offers a plan of some sort rather than May's "Trusssssst in me" snake song.

    We still don't have to brexit. We could choose not to and go back to the EU with a make it bloody work agenda.

    I am afraid to say it, but the unthinkable may happen according to the experts.
    Corbyn might pull it off, like the Trumpster, unless of course, it's a double bluff, encouraging the anti Labour vote not to take Theresa's victory for granted.

    He's still a long way behind even if they ae right. I'm also very distrustful of polls after recent elections. They seems to be distinctly off most of the time nowadays and the pollsters haven't seemed to know why as far as I can tell. Until we get some evidence they are back on target I'll be taking them as possible indicators only - and they never seem to be wrong in the way I'd like them to be!

    I think the biggest thing affecting the swing is not Corbyn, much, but May. I think she's coming across as evasive, she gives the impression she has very clear ideas about her plans but isn't telling because she knows we wouldn't vote for them. Every time someone tries to pin her down she retreats into generalities and bandies billions about. It's actually quite reminiscent of the Trump campaign in that way.

    And strangely Tim Farron is looking good to me.
