I bet Bran from Game of Thrones thinks he’s great at skinning up but his spliffs are too skinny and tight and you’re sucking fruitlessly away while he drones on about Infinite Jest (which he hasn’t actually finished and never will).

One of the scariest things about Labour antisemitism is that, as James shows, these “proud anti-racists” are simply parroting the same lines used by the National Front a few decades ago.

But Sanders and Warren are similarly left wing - not such a big policy contrast.

I saw that as well a few weeks ago. Assumed it was largely driven by name recognition and affection for old white men.

Sure but I think there's more to it than that. Not to downplay that factor in any way but there's never just one explanation.

That makes sense. Her policies are radical but not her optics and I'm sure that puts some people off.

I think that's a big part of it but I also know women who prefer Sanders, presumably for other reasons.
