Hmm Labour are doing a Hilary Clinton and getting vote share wrong - EVEN assuming that vote share correct, they are wrongly assuming it is evenly spread and translates evenly into seats. It doesn't apparently current patterns (which are bad for Labour in marginals) equate to a 112 seat Tory majority. You have been warned.

Why warned? Does anybody actually care. What will be will be.

If we didn't care, I very much doubt we'd be posting in this thread.

Even if it does result in the strangeness of Jambomo agreeing totally with Binks.

Binks usually talks a lot of sense unless you get him talking about dead Austrian geezers ;-).

You mean like Erwin Schrödinger?

I think he said you can simultaneously agree with someone and disagree with them :-)

Hmmm, I notice Theresa May being disingenuous, oh no, lying again.

She says JTAC has decided to lower the terrorist threat, but a couple of days ago she was saying the government decided to raise the threat level.

hmm making political capital Theresa, very poor, very poor indeed.

We appear to be off critical terror alert.

Guess armed police wandering around wasn't the 'strong & stable' the government thought the voters wanted.

It's because they cannot sustain 12+ hour shifts for very long especially for firearms officers.

I'm glad they're being given a break either way, although it is rather worrying that we don't have enough police (and firearms officers) to maintain critical status for even a week.

I'm also not entirely happy that it's even allowed for firearms officers to do 12+ hour shifts, but then they let junior doctors and other critical people do it, so I shouldn't be surprised.
