Not a bad courtesy car...
at 07:46 22 Jan 2020

No idea what Audi do, I was talking about Land Rover as he drives a Range Rover and that’s what he had to smash the window on

Should probably add that it could differ by make/model I suppose, but the Land Rover app is fairly basic really

He doesn’t, he has a Range Rover

And checking the app, it confirms whether the car is locked or not but doesn’t give the option of locking/unlocking

Their bad run started 8 games ago - they’ve got 8 points during that time

During the same period we’ve got 9 points, despite the recent upturn

I do think they’ll carry on sinking though

Well it certainly wasn’t the Corbyn direction of travel, was it?

I haven’t misread the data at all, a higher percentage of people responded favourably for Milliband than anyone else bar Corbyn. That people don’t know who the older options are is exactly the point I’m making - a bulk of respondents are not long term Labour members

The fact that this has been the direction of travel, and may well continue to be, is exactly the concern, as it’s been proven to be completely out of touch with the wider electorate

Already summarised perfectly by itfcjoe

Plus the results seem to be skewed pretty heavily by people who only discovered politics in 2015, seeing as Milliband is second and over a quarter don’t seem to know about anyone pre-Blair

Second poster of repute that I’ve seen say that on here, and yet every time I’ve been it’s been bang average. What am I missing?

A shame but whilst I like her I had reluctantly come to the conclusion that she wouldn’t stand a chance if chosen due to the way people would perceive her. Ultimately supporting her wouldn’t really be any different to the way Momentum propped up an obviously unelectable Corbyn

That said, in having the awareness and integrity to drop out showed why she should have been considered, and absolutely should be given a prominent role by whoever ends up as leader

Rather expertly managed to get stuck in that twice this morning, as I headed to the gym first thing and got caught coming back at half 7, and then again doing nursery dropoff and into work

Bottom of Humber Doucy Lane in particular was an absolute pr*ck

Grrrr etc

Saw that on FB earlier, it also spells out C*NT in massive levels

Childish but hilarious, especially as it looked like it must have taken ages to do

Yes that’s what I meant, although I do also think there is a bit of a difference between people being presented with a policy and liking it, and policies that people actually want and care about given a blank list

Oh definitely, you only need to listen to the accounts of those campaigning to know they were the 2 biggest issues

However there does seem to be an attempt to drive a narrative that the manifesto and policies were absolutely on point, which I think is at best unhelpful and worst wilfully burying heads in the sand

People liked some of Labours policies, but those policies got completely buried in the manifesto behind tw*ttery such as free broadband and nationalising the railways. Research from both before and after the election showed that the public didn’t believe Labour could deliver on it - which nullified that support for a majority of the electorate and rendered any attacks on the Tories far-fetched promises moot

https://yougov.co.uk/topics/politics/articles-reports/2019/12/23/their-own-words

It’s not scientific and obviously a small sample size, but for anyone ‘normal’ I know (eg. No real interest in politics but go and vote in a general election), any comment about Labour policies generally seeing them as a joke (eg. ‘Guess we’re not getting our free broadband then!’ following the election)

Obviously Corbyn and Brexit were the key issues, but that doesn’t mean the manifesto was otherwise a success
