The state of play

22:30, Thursday:

Basically, having lost the entire afternoon to erehwoN, courtesy of some very filling meat dumplings and veg in bouillon, Rip van Higham awakens to Johnson challenging Corbyn to a general erection.

Uh huh. So, under Cummings’s influence, he’s still maniacally desperate to keep Farage out and and in the PR stakes, by obsfuscating, he’s actually succeeding with the unthinking and manipulated out there.

He needs to remember that those polls were by Tory pollsters but never mind. There’s a game of brinkmanship going on – Cummings’s and Them’s motif – and as we know, should he STILL try to force a treasonous deal through [Macron at least is doing the right thing by us], then Farage mobilises – but mobilises whom?

Methinks it’s a sticky wicket trying to win Labour seats with Corbyn’s new Momentum-Commo-Toryism – it’s one form of treason versus another.

Should the unthinkable happen though and it goes No Deal, as it should have done all along, he’ll romp in at a GE and there are the Tories safe enough for now, Nigel still without-seat.

No doubt you differ on aspects of that scenario – I’d be interested in your thoughts on’t.

    If Brexit goes through on No Deal it doesn’t matter whether Nigel has a seat or not.

    A Clean Brexit is what matters, not Nigel’s political career. He would still have done more than anyone else to bring it about.

    Here’s a question to put to all politicians, not my idea originally –

    You can get 70% of your desired programme through if you are Prime Minister, or you can get 80% of your desired programme through if someone else is Prime Minister. Which do you choose?

    (You can change the percentages; it doesn’t matter.)

    I am certain that Nigel is not focused on being PM himself.

    The VAST majority of politicians would choose the lower percentage and being PM, I am sure.

    That’s one of the reasons I despise so many politicians.

    I particularly despise those like Heidi Allen, Cbuka Umunna, Anna Soubry, Sarah Woollaston etc. who switch parties, desert the policies they presented to the voters at the election but then refuse to stand in a by-election. My contempt for them runs very deep.

    Agreed.
