    OT - EU straw poll...

    On a turnout of less than 40%. With absolutely no policies. Bit of a stretch to try and extrapolate this into a GE scenario. There are marked trends but I think that trying to say they could win a landslide in a GE despite having no policies, shows a real lack of any kind of political nous.

    Ok by that logic there are people who voted brexit party last night despite having no perspective on brexit but did so based on the fact they hate the NHS and support insurance based healthcare because that’s what Farage has said he wants previously. Ignore the totals and look at the swings. The swings were exclusively single issue voters such as me. The swings have brexit party up about 5% on UKIP last time. Lib Dem and Green swings are up over 17% on vote share.

    Traditional green issues are heavily intertwined with pro eu sentiment as almost all their policies are related to international cooperation. Please point me to one single Green Party policy that would remotely support your assertion of having leave voters? I would bet there is literally less than 5 total green voters who support brexit. It is the home of pro-eu support and has been for decades.

    Well look at the proportions then. The info on vote swings is widely available. LD and Greens were very clear that this was a single issue vote, as were the SNP. To try and say people voted for them in this specific election for other reasons is ridiculous and doesn’t bear scrutiny. In other elections that’s fine but this one could not have been clearer that it was an anti-brexit vote. Make all the excuses you want but that’s reality. See above ‘**** to brexit’ Lib Dem policy if you need further clarification.

    I think the divisions of those parties are so pronounced that who was left is not really clear. I voted Labour at the GE but tactically, not because I wanted brexit. I also think that given the ambiguity of their Euro campaign then it’s disingenuous to add those on to Leave just because you’re adding parties that very clearly stated they were an anti brexit vote

    Well stop being deliberately dense then. It's that sort of deliberately obtuse attitude and reluctance to accept facts that has caused this entire mess. You're making ridiculous arguments. LD, Green and all the others made this equally single issue. LD no longer have a large support base, Greens have never really had one. If you look at the swing to Green and LD which has come from Labour and Tory, compared to the swing which has gone Brexit from Labour and Tory then it's inarguable that the Brexit party came out on top. Even by your own measure, which is those who wouldn't normally vote for LD or Green, the new voters for those two was much higher than the new (as in didn't vote UKIP last time) voters for Brexit party. Take the totals out of it, measure JUST the swing votes, and you get the same result - Remain won the evening.

    Oh yeah, there was nobody who voted Brexit party last night who would vote Tory in a GE for example are there? Jesus Christ you lot are pathetic, is this kind of babbling nonsense the best you can do?

    What do you want me to do? Aside from explain the obvious to people who are in denial about Remain having battered Brexit last night?

    And obviously, as adults, we are incapable of engaging our brains and have to take media headlines at face value without considering their provenance, bias, or backers. Wasn't believing headlines at face value with no modicum of foresight, how you got yourself in such a pickle and made so many bold, false assertions regarding Honda Swindon?

    OT - EU straw poll...

    You're wrong then. The Lib Dems have been unashamedly pro-EU and campaigned for these elections literally saying "A vote for LD is a vote against Brexit". That's after they had been all but politically wiped out post-coalition. They have seen an astonishing resurgence both in locals and in Euro elections. Greens have always been resolutely pro-EU too. To try and deny that people are voting for Greens and LDs in the Euro elections over Brexit, when both have made their entire campaign for these elections a single issue anti-Brexit campaign (as did the SNP too for the record) is to either be incredibly poorly informed, or so blinkered you can't see the wood for the trees.

    The hard Remain parties got over 40% Brexit party got 35% I would suggest it's you who doesn't get it.

    By that ridiculous logic, you have to subtract any Brexit party votes that would have still voted for them when they announce any other policies. Widdecombe's comments were ludicrous to anyone with an ounce of sense - hopefully you'll review your position on that one.
  19. This one is just embarassing. Surely they don't still actually believe their sh1tty little club with 12,000 fans and third tier football is remembered by anyone outside Suffolk? https://www.twtd.co.uk/forum/459307/i-can-just-imagine-the-phone-call/#15

    Official summer timewasting thread

    Just to answer your point, I'm utterly ambivalent and am likely to become even more so as the world cup comes up. In fact, I actually hope that the whole thing is rubbish and England get knocked out early, as that way the rest of us will avoid being bored to tears by the media. For the record, a game that takes several days to play cannot be classed as a sport - it is a sedentary activity (and barely even hits the activity mark). I just don't understand how anyone can find any joy in cricket at all. On topic of the thread, I will mostly be killing time by dodging any mention of cricket, planning for a house move, and going to China for a few weeks in the summer (although that's not until right at the end of the off-season tbf)

    Brilliant news, one of my favourite players of recent seasons. Seems like a really good guy. Really pleased he is sticking around.

    Stunning season - at a cost

    3 goals 5 assists isn’t quite the same as losing over 40% of your goals. We spent about 2 mill or so more despite selling Murphy and Madders for 25 mill more than they sold Brooks for.

    Fair enough - my mistake, it's pretty close though and they didn't have to sell their best players.
