Parliament was dissolved today officially starting the general election. Here at the start, it's looking decent for the Torys. Though we all know a lot can change between now and polling day.

That said, I can't see why anyone would vote labour out side of party loyalty or some other none Brexit issue, which frankly is just irresponsible. Their stance is that the UK will have a customs union but won't negotiate it's own trade deals but that the EU and UK will make trade deals with other countries together which is...optimistic. Aside from the fact there's no incentive for the EU to care about what the UK wants, the only way for trade deals to benefit both is for the UK customs union to be so aligned with the EU that there's functionally no difference. It's the softest of soft Brexits even if it was possible, so he's missing the votes from the vast majority of leave voters.

But maybe that's the point, since they've also said they'll then hold a second referendum and campaign for remain over their own deal. At which point, why not just vote for the lib dems? They won't waste time making deals they don't want and would either just hold the referendum or revoke the article straight up.

Leave or Remain, unless you're an actual socialist, you have better options than Labour.

And this is why I don't pay my TV licence. Because the Beeb will insist on asking the views of rappers and actors and "celebrities" because they want to pander to the yoof. I wouldn't do a piece about the London grime scene asking what Sir Bufton Tufton thinks about who has the illest beats, so to would I not do a piece about the Mogg asking some rapist-looking degenerate of a "rapper."
Oh please, you would love an article where Reese Mogg shares his opinion on modern pop music

It always blows my mind that Herman Hesse was writing about this trend in The Glass Bead Game, over 70 years ago.

Anti-Brexit parties have formed a 'Remain alliance' to stop Boris Johnson from winning the general election

Three anti-Brexit opposition parties have announced plans to step aside for each other in dozens of seats across the country, in a move which could prevent Boris Johnson's Conservative Party from winning the UK general election.

The Liberal Democrats, Plaid Cymru, and the Greens have agreed to step aside for each other in 60 seats across England and Wales in the general election. 49 of those seats are in England while 11 are be in Wales.

In England, the Liberal Democrats will have a run at 40 seats, including London target seats Bermondsey & Old Southwark and Finchley & Golders Green. The Greens will have a clear run at nine seats, including Brighton Pavilion and the Isle of Wight.

In Wales, the Greens will have a clear run at one seat, while the Liberal Democrats will run in three and Plaid Cymru seven.

The agreement, which was brokered by a cross-party group called Unite to Remain, does not cover Labour, which will stand candidates in all seats at the December 12 election.

Unite to Remain's Peter Dunphy told Business Insider that the group had approached the Labour Party about possibly working together but was "heavily rebuffed" by members of Jeremy Corbyn's Shadow Cabinet.

The agreement is significant because it could prove to be a decisive factor in marginal seats where Remain voters could split their vote between different candidates, and because previous cross-party attempts to co-ordinate Remain pacts have failed.

Member of Parliment Heidi Allen, who chairs Unite to Remain, said the December election was the last chance for anti-Brexit parties and campaigners to keep the UK in the European Union.

"They [the parties] know this general election is the last chance to change the path that this country is currently on," she said at a press conference on Thursday morning.

The Conservatives are currently on course to win the election, with a YouGov poll conducted earlier this week placing the Conservatives on 38%, Labour on 25%, the Liberal Democrats on 16%, and the Brexit Party on 11%.

The template for Unite to Remain's plan was the Brecon and Radnorshire byelection in Wales in August, where the decision by the Green Party and Plaid Cymru to stand aside for the Liberal Democrat helped to overturn the Conservatives' majority of 8,000 and install a Remain candidate.

Most of the candidates given a free run will be Liberal Democrats, which had 20 MPs when parliament was dissolved on Tuesday. The Greens had one MP while Plaid had four.

Allen, the former Conservative MP who defected to the Liberal Democrats, co-launched Unite to Remain and said the level of cross-party co-operation was "unprecedented in modern British political history."

"With a single remain candidate in 60 seats we will return a greater number of remain MPs to parliament," she told the Guardian.
"This is our opportunity to tip the balance of power away from the two largest parties and into a progressive remain alliance."
Jo Swinson, the Liberal Democrats leader, said: "We are delighted that an agreement has been reached. We would like to thank Unite to Remain for making this possible.

"This is a significant moment for all people who want to support remain candidates across the country."
However, some anti-Brexit campaigners are concerned that in a handful of seats, Unite to Remain could help the Conservatives win by taking votes from Labour MPs who support holding a new referendum and staying in the EU.

These seats are Exeter, Stroud, Portsmouth South, and Cardiff Central. All four seats are currently held by Labour MPs who support a "People's Vote" and reversing the decision to leave the EU.

It also fell apart within hours as a Welsh lib dem has quit the party to fight on as an independent in the seat he'd been asked to step aside in for plaid.

Nah, he still has his private militia to keep him going. I see THE massive split happening in the Labour party.
See, my first reaction to that is "Well hey, that's even better!". But to be honest I think it does us all a disservice to have scruffy communist grandpa in charge of one of the two major parties. I wouldn't mind actually having the option to vote Labour, I do actually like some of their policies.

Nige has seen sense/got a slap upside the head.

So either he got his concession, was bluffing and it didn't work, or he genuinely wanted to run 500 people and realized he would become the most unpopular person in Britain very quickly.
This also means that he's acknowledged that his party is just there as a buffer to try and steal seats from Labour.

Corbyn leaving would wake the Labour Party up within an instance. I guess I've come to the realisation that British voters are mainly in the centre. Nowadays most Labour voters are a mixture of old socialist grandads who still believe marxist philosophy books, woke teens with terrible jumpers and consist of staring at twitter 24/7, and vegans with equally bad fashion telling us how the world's gonna end unless we shag cows and eat terrible avocado food.

I don't know whether this defeat (should he lose, here's hoping) will shake Corbyn. They've been trying to get rid of him for ages, and he just...sits there and nothing happens.
