    Jo Swinson must take an early lead with a leaflet that says “ Britain’s next prime minister”.

    Corbyn will be hard to beat...

    Corbyn... “labour can’t wait to get out on the streets and fight this election”

    Must be in contention for a couple of category wins already...

    Ms Abbott read History at Newnham College, Cambridge, although this early evidence of intellectual capability surprisingly does not receive as much publicity from Labour Party circles as one might expect.

    Being thick is a trait of the entire house.
    On the first election vote under FTPA needing 2/3 of the house it failed by a very big margin.

    Only when a simple majority was needed of 320 or so, were 437 yes votes cast for the motion so exceeding the 2/3 needed just a day before!

    Considering corbyn wants to focus on domestic policy and intends systematic theft of assets , and state funding and intervention, illegal under EU rules, so he Wants brexit but not the blame for it: what planet is he on, leaving brexit undecided. Voting the day before would have got his thorny problem solved,

    Diane Abbott is not yet ready to be interviewed, because she’s still counting the number of times she voted for the motion and is struggling in adding up to 1 so is also struggling counting her options.

    You’ve got to hand it to you cantabs Graham, cantabs are certainly on another plain of thinking!
