    Kind of missing the point of the post you quoted.

    If we are talking about how politicians appear may is looking more and more like a well dressed worzal gummage

    Thats a function of the loony first-past-the-post system.

    I remember this exchange by two middle aged Irish Labourers in London in the Eighties.

    It was during tea break.

    'I don't think your man Foot is up to the job at all'

    'C***t'

    'The Sun voted him the worst dressed man in England'

    'C***t'

    I think these things can be overstated.

    I had a feeling in my waters that this coronation might not go to plan, couldn't quite see where the problem might arise but it turns out she's pretty handy at throwing down her own stumbling blocks.

    I still think she'll win but her authority won't be enhanced.

    Will be watching to see can he get more Corbynistas elected to counterbalance the Blairites. Can he replace Ian McNichol with a Corbynista as Secretary General of Labour, so that Momentum dominated constituency associations are no longer dissolved?

    Never going to happen , fantasy land stuff.

    The Tories are going to win in landslide , anyone who thinks differently is bonkers.

    The polls will start to reflect this soon enough once the electorate have been jolted by the latest polls which are way out of kilter with what is actually going to happen.

    May is the worst leader I have seen at getting her message across on the TV.

    Does anyone think that being bloody difficult is a good tactic when you in a serious negotiations with anyone other than your parent?

    While Thatcher looked as if she had come to eat your babies, Blair reminded me of fanatical team leader for a dodgy time share sales operation and Cameron a lost Henry still seeking the ultimate hooray.

    She is poor alright , no argument there but that does not matter. The Tories are strong on Brexit and strong on immigration , that will win the election. The Tories and the press will now start focusing on the potential 'appalling vista' of the likes Diane Abbot , McDonald , Corybyn etc actually been in power at such an important time , this will jolt the UK electorate into the landslide the Tories will win.
