I know polls are inaccurate but they've been used in this thread recently, so...

From TheSecretBarrister on Twitter:

"The Prime Minister has basically copied and pasted my blogpost into a thread and passed it off as his own explanation. [of the situation regarding the London Bridge terrorist's release from jail]

A blogpost which I had to write to rebut the lies he spent yesterday spouting.

This is weapons grade shithousery."

It's interesting that the terrorist was originally sentenced under Labour's IPP which is an indeterminate sentence to be judged at stages by a panel, but could mean whole life. However the IPP was scrapped when the Tories got in, allowing this fella to win an appeal and so be let out, without any reference to a Parole Board.

Tories have had an interesting few days,

First we have Theresa May and Johnson traipsing all the way down tyo Plymouth to unveil a statue of Nancy Astor who held very fruity views on Jewish people, the Nazi's and Catholics (and despoite the headlines was not the first female MP!)

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/nancy-astor-statue-theresa-may-boris-johnson-antisemitism-plymouth-a9226106.html

Likewise there is still no media coverage of the three Tory elected members who have been convicted for child sex offences inside of the past year, do they have an institutional problem I wonder, if only we had a fearless media to find out?

It's so brazen that the tories try to pin it on labour despite them having been in power for 10 years. It's as though they know that they don't need to bother trying to look honest any more; people just lap it up regardless. Helped by the tabloids spinning it to make the tories look like the heroes in saying they'll fix their own cock-up.

First elected female MP was an Irish Republican for Sinn Fein who didn't take her seat.

And the appalling lack of respect shown to the families' wishes, despite the Jack Merritt's father calling for the govt and right wing press not to make political capital out of his son's death, that's exactly what they've done:

That's it, keep repeating it and place it on as many threads as you can and people might start believing it.

To put it mildly I'm ashamed to think that a parasite like Buckland so say represents the southern half of Swindon and district, I'm inclined to think the majority of people in the area will find it his views similarly distastelul.

You mean you're comfortable with Johnson ignoring Jack Merritt's father's explicit request not to exploit his son's murder for election campaigning? And that our MP continued that on the radio this morning? You're OK with that?

I heard the interview this morning and it made my stomach churn. Buckland's never been my cup of tea politically but he always struck me as someone who was fundamentally decent, sad to see the depths he's been dragged down to by this PM

Exactly my reaction.

The contrast to someone like Phillip Lee, who crossed the floor and left his job in the Justice Ministry, is stark.  Lee now critcises Buckland as using the Trump playbook.  Lee felt the no deal Brexit which Buckland now pursues is not representing his consttiuents.
