Yeah if they're labelled peanuts but contain tree nuts that's really dangerous and of course they need to be recalled

(this is something that struck me a while ago; while campaiging to reverse Brexit is probably right in a global sense, the one thing it ain't is "centrist")

Full disclosure: I thought that this strategy would work before noticing it didn't

The interesting thing to me is that his own party have completely abandoned the centre ground on the issue of biggest salience.

I've been going to Sidmouth and Seaton pretty consistently for about fifteen years and while they're still pretty far behind London they're a hell of a lot better than they were

Seriously, looking at those numbers, the natural interpretation of the 2% lead is surely that the LDs aren't picking up their end of the plank.

Imagine if the once relevant third party was taking any material share at all.

your first point (she's a Nazi) seems correct, your assertion that she is all that, is one I'd quibble with.

I think pretty few. Even Penmaenmawr seems like it was on the way back up a few years ago. I really worry we could slide back

This is just an assertion. We don't know how much trouble it would be or how valuable the EU perceives the UK to be because no one's ever done the work

The UK isn't Norway, it's a G7 economy. The space for mutual gain vs hard Brexit is so big that all sorts of equilibrium were possible. We never tried.

This is sour grapes. The EU hasn't repeatedly make anything clear because no proposals have been made to it.
