    Ooft. Just read that. I'm pretty sure there's a word to describe a system that prevents courts ruling on laws.
    I just had a glance over the page and couldn't see anything that stood out as being particularly noxious (other than the predictable over use of the ridiculous "get Brexit done" phrase).

    ďWe will ensure that judicial review is available to protect the rights of the individuals against an overbearing state, while ensuring that it is not abused to conduct politics by another means or to create needless delaysĒ.
    There could be an awful lot lurking under that anodyne statement.

    "we also need to look at the broader aspects of our constitution: the relationship between the government, parliament and the courts"

    I suspect there won’t be any proof. It’s likely that there are two different laws and the courts will be asked to decide if they are compatible and if not, which is most important.

    I don't know what any of this means but, there seems to be some international precedents, however, whether it applies to the Scottish secession from the UK or not. I haven't a scooby.

    Also

    The political origins of the modern concept of self-determination can be traced back to the Declaration of Independence of the United States of America of 4 July 1776 , which proclaimed that governments derived ‘their just powers from the consent of the governed’ and that ‘whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it’. The principle of self-determination was further shaped by the leaders of the French Revolution

    I think the fact that Labour are promising to confiscate private property for the state has many people thinking that Corbyn May be about to embark along a path he has long promoted. When he says Venezuela is a great example of how socialism could work, people get slightly nervous.

    Confiscate or buy out with a fair price?

    I think it would be very dangerous for the UK government to say to the people of Scotland that we no longer have any democratic route to independence. That only provides fuel for the extremists in society. Democracy is fundamental to our way of life.

    I don't disagree and that applies to extremists on both sides.

    Totally. The biggest strength of the union is that it is a choice. If it starts to be compulsory with no democratic escape route then that is a gift for the more radical folk on both sides.

    SNP and Plaid Cymru aren't included, so they may have gone up. There will be some rounding, and possibly an increase in don't know/ won't vote.

    Just watched it on catch-up. I thought Farage, as unlikeable he is, did well, in his terms.

    Neil did give all the questions for Johnson away but I think that was bait and I think he can pin it down further. Neil is not stupid, nor are his researchers.

    Agree, itís not the original questions he gets them on, itís the follow ups to their answers.

    General election 2019



    Those results would be a great night for the SNP, an ok one for the Tories and a disaster for Labour.

    Is there a strong model that plays that out for constituency bias? I appreciate that’s a big ask but it would be fascinating to see. The polling is straightforward, albeit interesting in itself, but won’t reflect what happens at a very local basis.

    Another depressing episode of Question Time last night, that seemed to confirm that the Northern working class are going to vote Tory last night

    It seems Boris shows leadership, he is prepared to take the tough decisions etc. It seems to me that these people have been ignored by successive governments for a reason, they don't have a clue about much.

    I suspect a Tory landslide is on the cards.

    Reminds me of "questions" in Parliament, when it was interesting.

    I doubt it very much. I think itís only the 2nd Scottish Poll of the whole campaign.
    If it was based on a uniform swing then Tories would likely go down to about 8 seats even though they are still on about 28%, same as last time. Labour would be down to 1 although maybe they get Kirkcaldy because of the SNP suspension? Lib Dems probably hold their 4 and maybe gain NE Fife as well? SNP would be looking at about 44/46 seats which would be at the high end of their expectations. Anything over 40 and they have had an amazing night.
    Good chance that is the last Scottish Poll we see. This election will be won and lost in England and I canít see money being spent on another Scottish Poll.

    I don't think it'll be a landslide but I think they'll win a majority which will be bad enough.
    The north of England working classes voting for them is just beyond comprehension. Pure slugs voting for salt stuff. But they won't be so happy when the NHS has been destroyed.

    I can guarantee when that happens it won't be their fault. Probably blame immigrants for making them take back their country.

    Only change of killing the cowardly liar's majority is if Corbyn obliterates him in the debate tonight. He has to do it.

    Not saying it's a strong model likes, but Guardian, possibly aided by Curtice, suggesting these implications:

    Seat projections from the poll see the SNP up from 35 to 46, Tories down from 13 to 8, the Lib Dems sticking at 4 and Labour losing all but one of their 7 Mps

    Britain Elects poll tracker - the Tories seem to have hit their ceiling while Lab are still climbing and the Libs falling. Still just under 10pt Tory lead though. Grim times.

    *****bag (Johnson, not you! )

    Neil calling him out on it yesterday was magnificent. I have no real time for Neil but his video was scathing and damning and the fact that Johnson is running scared from him is very telling.

    Johnson isn't a leader, he's not even a good politician. He's an opportunist who has somehow blagged his way to the top, but there's no substance to him whatsoever.

    I can't get my head around why anyone would consider him a suitable candidate for Prime Minister.
