Equally serious problems at the other end of age spectrum and driving too. But surely if the issue is night time driving adding a few hours of compulsory night time driving to the test would be a better solution.

Good MRP obviously much better but difficult to communicate effectively to the public. ‘Our model says we can win here’ sounds like ungrounded optimism.

They'll use EU parl and MRPs to make the case though especially with any potential remain alliance. I'd use 2010 results in constituencies to show possibility of winning if I were running a LibDem campaign.

Looking forward to reading the details - lots of interesting data here and overlap with work I've been doing on values, value space and the 'clans'. Polarisation or fragmentation, my question for the next few weeks of writing.

Doesn't it matter most who you think will get the votes in your constituency? LibDem voters might be entirely rational thinking they can win that seat but not a majority of all seats.

It is interesting how sport hasn't become part of the 'culture wars' - one aspect of life where the omnivore thesis seems to hold quite well. Yet there were certainly class overtones to sport in the past, but critically perhaps not differences based on education level

Tennis and cricket my two favourite sports by some margin, today spent in a theatre from 3pm to 7.30pm watching my two boys in their annual dance show. I can only hope one day they’ll understand the sacrifice.

Elite state schools in England are collecting millions of pounds in donations from parents while schools with poorer pupils struggle to raise any funds at all, an investigation shows. I’m glad the Observer looked into this.

Met my husband in an on-line game in 1996 - which was definitely ahead of the curve. Before 1990 would have been almost exclusively academics I'd guess.

The issue being how one does that without a Sky Sports subscription.

I’ve loved cricket since I was a child. My 10 year old son and his friends have no clue this is even happening. Think they possibly know more about the netball

Have exactly this experience. The only upside is I no longer have to channel hop between cricket and tennis.

Can’t help thinking I’d quite enjoy watching Serena prove the over confident men wrong for an hour or two

New data to come on this soon but at EU elections these two switched again. Proud and Patriotic State to Brexit party and Modern Working Life to LibDems.

Low turnouts and small areas aside here’s another result that is worthy of a crikey. Think we may need a word stronge4 than volatile soon.
