Wood calmly tore Farage a new one there. I think Farage has given up.

Sturgeon just zingered Farage. Smiley

She did.

Farage is getting bored. Everyone is just ignoring him.

That guy simply illustrated what Satan wants to do to humanity.  Make God small, put him into a box in which you can kill him with one minor poke of a shovel.  The shovel being symbolic of the next step burying the dead god you just killed.

The best part...the main message was "we created God in our image.  He hasn't served us how we think he should.  So now we'll kill him." That sounds familiar.

That dude will be super gullible to anyone that can use technology to impress him and claim to be a savior.  Next thing you know he'll be putting you in a box until you're small and he can kill you with a shovel in the name of his savior.

It has all happened before and it will happen again.

I have no idea what this, or anything else you are saying these days, means.

Anyway, the YouGov Election Centre is actually quite interesting and I'm sure will no doubt be binned if it misses the mark on the day so enjoy it while you can.

As of today, they have 8 UKIP 'wins' on the NowCast and Plaid have regained Dwyfor Meirionnydd Tongue Scotland is a bloodbath with only 1 Lib Dem, 1 Tory and 1 Labour MP left.

FWIW hifly's opinion on everything is generally worth hee haw on here so it's not worth your effort.

YouGov's website is now the most impressive UK political website around imo. Check out their election centre: https://yougov.co.uk/#/centre

The little forecast is interesting, though it's Nowcast suggests 0 Plaid MP'S :/

Oooooookay...
The willfully blind...amazingly...dont see sh**t.  And thats why they step in it and get their reward, afleitch.

Nothing of what you wrote made any sense at all and for your own benefit, if you are reading books that way, making tenuous links and talking about 'virtual reality' and Satan, then I would suggest you seek help.

Even if the overall figures fit into wider patterns, you probably shouldn't over analyse anything ComRes churn out...

---

Regarding Plaid, they're under pressure in Arfon and possibly Carmarthen East & Dinefwr. The Island is a law unto itself (of course), while they will be hoping for a repeat of 1992 in Ceredigion (I have no idea how likely or not that is). They always try in Llanelli but have yet to come close. Elsewhere they will make a noise but that's likely it.

Incidentally, it's not entirely impossible that after May there will be no Liberal seats in Wales for the first time since... er... well 'ever' will probably do. Since at least the 1720s if we're counting ancestral parties.

If Leanne Wood does well at the debate; whether real, perceived or crowned by the media, where might it have an effect, if anywhere?

Labour-held seats in Scotland - ComRes Poll:
SNP - 43%
Labour - 37%
Conservatives - 13%
Greens - 2%
UKIP - 2%
Lib Dems - 2%

Poll conducted in the 40 Labour held seats in Scotland - Labour would be left with 12 MPs according to this poll.

If the change on 2010 is applied nationwide you get;

SNP - 43
LAB - 28
CON - 16
LD - 7

So what would be expected.
88  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: UK General Election - May 7th 2015 (The Official Campaign Thread) on: March 31, 2015, 12:35:32 pm
ComRes poll of Labour seats in Scotland point to basically what we already know.

SNP. The first time in a Westminster election I'll have voted for them.

I'm proud of myself for spotting the detail that made the whole court case the first time we saw the videotape.  Cool

I was too busy watching Jon Hamm doing push-ups to notice.

I might run a 'poll of polls' on here. I need to work on the model.
92  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: UK General Election - May 7th 2015 on: March 30, 2015, 04:49:50 pm
YouGov, sensing a false start on their Milibounce have pulled it back to 35-35.
93  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: UK General Election - May 7th 2015 on: March 30, 2015, 05:56:57 am
We have a London poll and a Welsh poll today. We also have Populus

CON 34 (+3)
LAB 34 (+1)
LIB 8 (-1)
UKIP 15 (-1)
GRN 4 (-1)
94  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Pence signed it: Add Indiana to the list of states with "religious freedom" laws on: March 30, 2015, 05:52:05 am
But why do you elevate religious freedom over other freedoms in law? The right of a man to live accordingly to his conscience without legal interference as long as that conscience is derived from religion? You've never answered that, nor have you dealt with a possible redress of that. If you're going to create a law to empower the religious to discriminate carte blanche, why not empower those they may potentially be discriminated against, to discriminate against the religious in turn?
95  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Pence signed it: Add Indiana to the list of states with "religious freedom" laws on: March 29, 2015, 05:13:31 pm
Are you seriously quoting H L Mencken? A man who was a critic of democracy and believed strong men had the right to rule the weak? A man who conflated 'race' with caste and talked about racial stocks? A man that said talking to a coloured women was like speaking to a child?

I mean seriously?

A man who said this;  'The educated negro of today is a failure, not because he meets insuperable difficulties in life, but because he is a negro. He is, in brief, a low-caste man, to the manner born, and he will remain inert and inefficient until fifty generations of him have lived in civilization. And even then, the superior white race will be fifty generations ahead of him.'

You are quoting HIM to back up your argument?

The pollsters hate us all right now. After a 4 point Labour lead with YouGov, ComRes have a 4 point Tory lead, their biggest since 2010.

Blair - FF turned HP

'Nurse?'

Portsmouth South is going to be a bunfight.
99  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: UK Labour and Conservative leaders since WWII - FF or HP on: March 29, 2015, 11:41:31 am
Attlee was sort of rubbish and most of the creations of that era that he get's credit for were instigated by far more brilliant minds in the party at that time, but he's 'deified' by Labour so he gets 'FF' from many people out of expectation.

Labour:

Attlee - HP
Gaitskell - HP
Wilson - FF
Callaghan - HP
Foot - HP
Kinnock - HP
Smith - FF (peace be upon him)
Blair - Tanned HP
Brown - HP
Miliband - UH...

Conservatives:

Churchill - HP (post war)
Eden - Idiot
Macmillan - FF
Douglas-Home - meh
Heath - meh
Thatcher - FF because she gets more attention and sh-t than she deserves
Major - FF
Hague - HP
Duncan-Smith - HP
Howard - FF
Cameron - FF

And because it's only fair.

Liberals/Alliance/Lib Dems

Davies - meh
Grimond - FF
Thorpe - Beyond massive HP
Steel - FF
Jenkins - HP
Owen - HP
Maclennan - HP
Ashdown - HP
Kennedy - Tired and emotional
Campbell - HP
Clegg - FF (screw you all)

Oh much less now.

I have a husband. I paint, I go to the gym and I'm more taken in by history these days.
