Polls look bad for Labour. The only way they could win the election is if the government stumbled into some kind of political and economic crisis.

Yeah, it's why I think the "is this peak Corbyn" debate is just a bit arid and odd. Should ideally Labour want to be further ahead at this point in a generic electoral cycle? Definitely IMO. But there are so many reasons why this looks wholly unlike a generic electoral cycle.

Yes, my essential view is, leaving aside anything else, Impossible to see how you do Brexit without it knackering the Tory party and therefore I don’t really see what the “good” message they can have on it will be.

And then with, say, Sacks, we did and of course in this case or the Farage interview we didn’t. But you’re right to say it’s an important question!

The only explanation I can think of for this is that she genuinely thought member states today might say Chequers was actually fine despite Barnier repeatedly saying it sucks. But that’s been a total delusion from day one

On the collective line thing, it’s just not how we think about it. It’s not like, say, the politics column or even moreso the leader. The conversation is more “is this opinion one that we ought to leaderise on at the same time?”

It’s a good question. For me at least, the normalisation dimension becomes moot when the person already have a platform significantly bigger than our readership.

Yep, it’s a v weak message. “Please help me voters, I can’t control the opposition”

It’s about trying to draw a dividing line if they’re forced into an election, I think.
