Android : (((Zoe Williams))) I can find milkshaking Farage both hystericaly funny AND I can also recognise that normalising physical attacks on politicians (no matter how trivial the attack or repugnant the victim) erodes the integrity of the public square. This does not lead to a good place.
Android : Andrew Adonis 1/This election has zero effect on Labour’s agency on Brexit, 2/ Any vote taken from Greens and LibDems & given to Labour > interpreted as a vote for Labour's "please everybody" Brexit fudge. 3/a vote for unambiguously anti Brexit parties has the most influence on Labour.
Android : Suspicious BagDavid NicholsonDavid Schneider Labour should be counted as neutral at worse. Most MEPs are running on a #PV /Remain platform regardless of Manifesto. This election is only useful as a temperature take, and counting Labour votes as Leave would be distorting the results.
Android : Winnie CullMacFemiMike Stuchbery💀🍷 As much as the sight of Farage being shaked makes me grin, I have a lot of sympathy with Anna Soubry MP on this. Normalising attacks on politician's personal space is not going to lead anywhere good.. There must be more effective ways of ostracising without contact.
Android : Pimlicat 🛑🏳️🌈🇬🇧🇪🇺💛 Probably true, but we need a concerted effort to ensure the post election narrative is ALL ABOUT the popular vote, and not seats. We have every chance of winning the former, and zero of achieving the latter.
Twitter Web Client : Julie Owen Moylan TBH all is sort of irrelevant. Remain vote is split regardless. The task remainers have is ensuring the post election narrative is all about the popular vote (how many voted for unambiguously Remain parties), & how this was at the expense of an equivocating Labour party.
