Weird how quiet the response to that poll has been eh?

Maybe having a 2 pt lead against the worst government in living memory isn't really much to shout about?


:lol:

Those numbers are appalling for the two big parties. And the trend at the moment is showing Labour losing, one outlier wouldn’t fill me with confidence.

Not sure about that. Since the EU election only YouGov and Ipsos MORI have not had Labour leading everyone else at some point. Opinium also had Brexit Party ahead just after the EU election then a Labour lead in June and last week.

Fair enough, I don’t remember seeing any with Labour ahead but I accept I could be wrong there.

In fairness that's probably because YouGov have released nine polls in just over a month, which is more than everyone else* combined.

He has multiple criminal convictions, including one for illegally entering the US on a false passport. He also has a history of drugs use.

The US wouldn’t let him go to Disneyland, let alone grant him asylum. :lol:

The alt-right do seem to be pushing the idea that Yaxley-Lennon is going to die in prison though. Let’s hope that doesn’t happen, not because I give a gooseberry fool about him, but because the last thing we need is for that dickhead to become a martyr for all the racists.

I think the bigger story here is that the UK has brought back the death penalty.

He's going to have to serve six months and presumably it'll include the time he served last year. He be out in next to no time.

But he is a journalist! They don’t lock up BBC reporters! He might die in prison! All he does is tell the truth and they don’t like it!

Please donate to him here to save this poor political prisoner. :cry:

No no, he hates “other” asylum seekers, and funky coloured asylum seekers, and funny sounding asylum seekers. It’s a totally different definitely not racist thing.
