Excited about this. By which I of course mean, nervous.

Possibly. But I'm sure I wore it better.

I do have some orange trousers, but in my defence this was shortly after I returned from Italy and I thought I could pull them off.

“Quarter to 11, clean, this is good for shopping. A bit of flu around. I like it.” The weather was sure to encourage people to come to his store, he joked. “Mufflers, gloves, chilblains, this is for us.”

If employees did not answer the phone, he would persist until they picked up... “When you eventually answered you would be greeted by, ‘I didn’t wake you up there, did I?’ or, ‘Ah, there you are, the dead arose and appeared to many.’”

Sorry, I meant each row in the data used to estimate the model, rather than each row in data_grid()

Why don't you just calculate the marginal effect for each row in the data and average over that?

I agree it was unfortunate that the lead candidate principle wasn't applied here. I don't think it's entirely lost though -- there's some cost in setting it aside

Not sure about Erhard, but otherwise I think so

There's a little bit of that for the UK, that's true. But I don't seem my role as making things come alive in hearts and minds, but rather educating people about comparative politics.

I think it's tolerable because those situations are (mostly) tolerable, and because I want to hold the EU to the same or slightly lower standards than MS, rather than higher standards. (I'm not tu quoque-ing you; on the contrary, I'm saying you're being consistent)

That's fine (since consistent), but that, as a standard, would cause problems for lots of different PMs (right now, Bierlein, Varadkar, Karins; Conte and Skvernelis?).

It's not a defence: rather, I'm trying to work out how your standard would apply in different cases.

Apologies, that hadn't come up by the time I clicked through. I think the tricky part is, what does "your manifesto" mean? There is, in the UK, a Conservative party manifesto, but is it Boris Johnson's manifesto?

What do you mean by a "direct mandate"?
