The Government will commit to banning the sale of all new diesel and petrol cars by 2040 in a bid to encourage people to switch to electric and hybrid vehicles.
This of course is nothing more than a pipe dream. More to the point there are easy ways around such bans, eg sell the new car as "second hand".

Question: When is a promise not a promise?
Answer: When it is an "ambition"
Unsurprisingly Labour have admitted that their "promise" to cancel student debt was bollocks!

It would seem, based on an extract of the text of Theresa May's speech scheduled for tomorrow (published in the Guardian), that May is edging towards forming a national government.
"At this critical time in our history, we can either be timid or we can be bold.Irrespective of the reaction of Labour and the Liberals, the Tories are not going to be best pleased with this idea!
We can play it safe or we can strike out with renewed courage and vigour, making the case for our ideas and values and challenging our opponents to contribute, not just criticise … In everything we do, we will act with an unshakable sense of purpose to build the better, fairer Britain which we all want to see."

Oh dear it seems that the Tories don't expect the current "strong and stable" government to be around for very long!
Hiring new campaign managers is all very well and good, but they will be of little use if the manifesto, leader of the day, interaction with the public etc are as crap as last time!

The £1bn DUP deal is done and signed not by Theresa May, but by the Government chief whip Gavin Williamson.
May knows that her time as PM is not finite. When she goes, the deal can continue without being renegotiated.
To pre-plan one's own demise is sensible, wrt funerals and wills. However, in politics such pre planning becomes a self fulfilling prophecy!

Corbyn and his Trot associates/enablers are more than prepared to the use the bones of the dead to provide the bedrock on their road to power.
This technique is far from unique, and has been used by many other dictators in the past.

Tim Farron’s parting shot, as per the Independent:
“We are kidding ourselves if we think we live in a liberal and tolerant society.”Now then, does he mean that his party couldn't tolerate him being a Christian, or that society couldn't tolerate him having non pc views?

Theresa May has apologised to the 1922 Committee (ie her backbenchers) and (on Friday morning last week) her campaign team for the ongoing clusterfuck.
She says she can fix it.
Now all she needs to do is apologise to the country!
Monday, 12 June 2017
Theresa May faces a less than impressed 1922 Committee tonight; the members of which will politely put across their view that the election was not terribly well run or thought through, and that May's performance was somewhat lacking.
Well then....let's see what happens.

My advice to both Labour and Tory candidates alike is to ignore the polls, they have proven to be worse than worthless over the past few years.
To place your faith in them, especially given their volatility, will drive you insane.

Labour's uncosted manifesto has received a thorough financial kicking from people/organisations with some knowledge/understanding of how the real world works.
Paul Johnson, director of IFS, said:
“They are looking at raising an awful lot from companies and high earners. The chance of getting £50bn are pretty small. It seems to us is that if they were able to raise that amount that would take tax burden in the UK to its highest level in 70 years."John O'Connell, chief executive of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:
"This entire manifesto is based on the clearly absurd belief that businesses can be repeatedly hammered with massive tax increases and crippled with regulation without any wider impact on the economy, jobs and investment.Ironically the coup de grace was delivered by that tired old union dinosaur, McCluskey of Unite, who doesn't think Labour has a cat's chance in hell of winning and said that holding on to 200 seats - a loss of 29 seats and its worst result since 1935 - would constitute “a successful campaign”.
If even a handful of these disastrous ideas were implemented it would mean misery for the many and employment for the few.”
Fair enough, Corbyn and co want to drag Britain backwards; why not back to the 1930's?
Tuesday, 16 May 2017
Despite it being leaked last week, the Labour manifesto will be officially launched today.
The oft repeated phrase "fully costed" has been used in the build up to the launch by party bigwigs. Except it isn't, McDonnell has admitted that the figures for nationalising water haven't been worked out yet!

Labour candidates are promising Labour voters they will remove Corbyn after the election in a desperate bid to win support on the doorstep, and are disowning the manifesto (even though it has yet to be officially published).
One Labour candidate described the manifesto as “childish”, as per the Telegraph:
“Those of us who are realistic about this know we can't stand on the manifesto that has been produced by the party so we won't mention it on leaflets and on the doorstep.”
One senior Labour candidate said:
"This is nothing more than an expensive wishlist. Some of it may be harmless but the rest of it reads like a 10 year old's letter to Santa Claus."Another, fighting to hold onto a marginal seat, said:
"You could promise unicorns for everyone, none of this is going to happen.How can voters trust people who stand for a party for which they neither support the manifesto nor leader?
It's a ludicrous document, it won't serve Labour MPs well on the doorstep and the public have largely stopped listening and taking us seriously anyway.”
Thursday, 11 May 2017
Labour's leaked manifesto appears to have fallen through a window in time from the 1970's, as it proposes taking us back to the "good old days" of a.o.:
- Beer and sarnies for union oligarchs at Number 10
- Wage caps
Wednesday, 10 May 2017
As per Guido Fawkes, Jeremy Corbyn’s son is planning a “hummus and falafel” victory party at Number 10 Downing Street if his father becomes Prime Minister.
How very "middle class Londonesque" of them!
I am rather concerned about the lack of quinoa though.
