Our biggest concern was that poll that had us at 8% in the Scottish elections next year
What poll was that? I haven't seen Labour below 20%, tbh.

The poll has disappeared, Ruth Davidson and several blairites re-tweeted it-basically laughing at the fact that we're doing worse than the tories for probably the first time since well ages

Probably figures from a crosstab of a UK-wide poll.

I genuinely think Rudd had some kind of mental breakdown in power.

He was apparently also a cock during his days in Queensland state politics.

Corbyn's odds seem to have tightened again today.

Poll of 250 Labour councillors in marginal seats by the Labour History Research Unit:

Corbyn - 30.3% (+5.13%)
Cooper - 28.7% (-1.23%)
Burnham - 28.3% (-2.65%)
Kendall - 12.7% (-1.25%)

Changes are on the previous poll. Full details here: http://ww2.anglia.ac.uk/ruskin/en/home/microsites/labour_history_research/useful_links.Maincontent.0003.file.tmp/LHRU%20September%202015%20polling.pdf

HP, ofcourse, however she shouldn't go to jail, just be fired from her job.

Pretty sure that it isn't possible as she is an elected official.

Jeb Bush is the Liz Kendall of this race.

Steve Brine (Conservative - Winchester)

Former local BBC reporter and President of his uni's Student Union (both somewhat unusual for a Tory MP).

Only the ones that live in Florida, maybe.

Big move to Cooper in the betting markets in the past few hours and away from Corbyn and Burnham, though Corbyn is still firm favourite. A new poll out in the near future?

Once again, Blair expresses regret over an actual achievement of his government's.

As long as their sandwiches are of better quality.

Some millions of years ago.

How... in any way dudeabides... is Rudd like Huckabee?

Both have a superficial public charm, I suppose.
14  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: UK General Discussion: Cameron 2.0 on: September 03, 2015, 04:25:56 am
So if one still had any doubts that Cameron's old fluffy liberal-green Toryism was anything more than an act...
15  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: UK MPs - 2015 Parliament on: September 03, 2015, 03:31:57 am
Andrew Bridgen (Conservative - North West Leicestershire)

Military and business background, anti-HS2. His initial election (in 2010) was probably made easier by the fact that the incumbent Labour MP, David Taylor, passed away a few months before the election.
16  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: UK MPs - 2015 Parliament on: September 02, 2015, 04:53:39 am
Kevin Brennan (Labour - Cardiff West)

Shadow Minister for Education. Son of a steelworker and a school dinner lady, so obviously a champagne socialist. One of those people who looks like quite a few other people.

Chuka Umunna is a strange guy, isn't he?
18  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Labour Party leadership election 2015 on: September 01, 2015, 08:56:25 am
Out of interest does anybody remember Mary Creagh?

No.

Btw, Dan Jarvis is second favourite (after Corbyn) with Ladbrokes to lead Labour in the next GE.

Trump isn't exactly short of cash himself.
20  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: UK MPs - 2015 Parliament on: September 01, 2015, 02:47:28 am
Julian Brazier (Conservative - Canterbury)

(Yet another) Army veteran, Cornerstone Group-er. I recall seeing him on the news a lot around the time of the gay marriage votes.
21  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Labour Party leadership election 2015 on: August 31, 2015, 04:09:39 pm
Labour's strongest seats aren't in university areas, they are depressed urban areas, not all of which are full of ethnic minorities (Indeed many are the opposite, see Tyne and Wear).

Britain is not America. Britain's voting patterns are different to America. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.

Yeah, Liverpool, I think, is whiter than the country as a whole.

A good British real ale.
23  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 Senatorial Election Polls / Re: IL-PPP: Duckworth +6 on: August 31, 2015, 11:18:48 am
Many Brits (particularly those aged, say, 30 or over) would be amused at the idea of a U.S. Senator named 'Duckworth'.
24  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Primary Election Polls / Re: IA-Monmouth GOP: Trump and Carson tied at the top on: August 31, 2015, 11:14:08 am
So in the top four we have three people who have never held elected office before and Ted Cruz.
25  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Who is further left? on: August 31, 2015, 10:17:51 am
Economically, Hollande. When it comes to foreign policy, Obama.

The left-right spectrum really doesn't apply to foreign policy.
