Have you seen the infamous Daily Mail front page on this, Fox?

You talking to me? Or the real Fox?

For a minute I thought Fox was back  :-\
I owe a special thanks to someone who enabled me to turn my dream into a reality

Sitting back and watching in despair as the main pro-Labour meme being distributed on Facebook is the "If you think Jeremy Corbyn is a loser than you've been brainwashed" one.

When will these dicks realise that even if it were true, that telling people they are unenlightened and just too thick to work it all out - doesn't work. It doesn't win votes.

It doesn't draw them in, it doesn't deal with those niggling concerns and it just makes them feel talked down to and sometimes sneered at, rather than respected.

The "We know better than you what you should and shouldn't be concerned about" campaign didn't work for REMAIN. Why won't Team Corbyn give themselves half a chance and just learn from their previous mistakes.

Do you remember when I was so excited about Jeremy Corbyn and even more excited that my mum's tiny little Labour Club  in rural NWales, in a wave of Corbynmania, had been swelled with deflecting Plaiders? This was it..Wales would be Labour once more as it should be.

Well they've all gone back to Leanne Wood's Plaid..taking my mother and two others with them.  Labour lunches are no more.  :'(

We are Bevans, dammit!

Heartbreaking, Sorted.

My mum was a Labour councillor. Now hers and half the solidly Labour council seats are occupied by UKIP. This is in the so-called Labour heartlands.

Ah well at least its not UKIP.

Plaid do well generally in our neck of the woods but they're set to do VERY well out of this one.

I am told that word from on high in the Party is that members are asked not to discuss the upcoming election in negative, defeatist terms. I suppose there might be some point to this edict so I am trying to respect it, even if it feels a bit like 'clap your hands really quickly if you believe in fairies'.
Every day is a bad hair day.

Yes I've been trying really hard not to go off on one on Twitter this week.

If you can't say something nice and all that.

Middle son will be voting for the first time, but the election is right in the middle of A levels so he won't really have time to pay much attention to the campaigns  >:(
He is however aware of Jeremy Corbyn's pledge to scrap uni tuition fees and reinstate the maintenance grant, so that will hopefully sway him in the right direction  :D
