Yeh I think that's it. 3 months to plan out a deal with access to the market (Labour conference recently passed a motion for opening up the country to immigration which should in theory be in the manifesto unless Corbyn ignores it), then at around 6 months that "deal" (likely a similar working solution another country follows already) and remain will be put to the public in a referendum. I'm sure Labour have also said that they (or at least the government) would remain neutral during such a referendum which would probably be a good thing with the anti establishment storyline that we've been in for the past few years. Hopefully it will all be spelled out properly in the manifesto whenever that drops

A man running to be an MP in Reading has been criticised after his website mistook part of Scotland for the town.

Craig Morley, Conservative prospective parliamentary candidate (PPC) for Reading East, had a picture of Melrose Abbey in Scotland rather than Reading Abbey ruins on his homepage.

Labour councillor Richard Davies, who spotted the error, said he was amazed by the mistake.

Mr Morley said the mistake was made by his web designer.

Easy mistake to make:

It’s a pretty good bet that if Guido said it, it is wrong.

Who to trust though, Guido or Kay Burley? :dread:

The Liberal Democrats have been accused of "intentionally misinforming" voters after publishing a series of misleading election campaign leaflets.

Leaflets sent out by the Lib Dems in their target seat of Putney cite "YouGov polling for Putney" showing the party level-pegging in the seat with the Conservatives.

However, a spokesperson for the pollsters YouGov told Business Insider that they had not carried out any polling in the constituency and "would not defend" how it had been presented in the leaflet.

The small print on the leaflet reveals that the Lib Dems have instead used a modelled projection of national YouGov polling by the website Flavible, which attempts to estimate support for parties in individual constituencies.

However, Flavible is clear that the projections should not be presented as being constituency polling, with users of the website told: "Do not conflate this with constituency polling."

In a statement, the creator of the website George Rushton accused the Lib Dems of "intentionally misinforming" voters.

"As many have seen, campaign material has been distributed by the Liberal Democrats, tweets have been shared by individual candidates and local parties," Rushton said.

"Most have correctly labelled this data. However, a few have either themselves misinterpreted the data or intentionally mislabelled the data for political advantage."

The Lib Dems came in a distant third place in Putney at the last general election in 2017, trailing the second-placed Labour candidate by over 13,000 votes.

Lib Dem candidates have also reportedly used Flavible projections in other Lib Dem target seats of York Outer, Esher and Walton, Islington North, Enfield Southgate, Woking, Oxford East, and Westminster and City.

Another leaflet sent out by the party this week quotes the Guardian newspaper as saying "Lib Dems winning and on the up after by-election victory."

However, the quote is actually from Lib Dem leader Jo Swinson herself.

The party was also accused of "dirty tricks" last week after publishing leaflets suggesting they were close to ousting Conservative MP Jacob Rees-Mogg.

The small print on the leaflet revealed the data used was from a poll asking voters in the seat how they would vote if only the Lib Dems and Conservatives were in contention.

Hermon was the only sensible unionist. It's hard to point to anyone like her in the parties. A real shame for NI.

BBC Panorama special tonight at 8pm on 1

David Dimbleby travels across the UK in the lead up to the 2019 general election to reveal why it is going to be one of the most unpredictable elections in recent history. David finds a United Kingdom divided, and discovers people's views on Brexit have largely hardened, while party allegiances have weakened, and fury with politicians is rarely far from the surface.

Seems like a lot of decent MP's are standing down. Watson clearly didn't fit with Corbyns labour party though. They've been trying to get rid of him for ages.

Amusement under late capitalism is the prolongation of work.

I was thinking Watson had been a bit quiet recently. Haven't heard much from him since the Operation Midland thing.
