No - I don't think we have. I think it's a calmly-reasoned and well-written piece.


Edited to add -

Sometimes Owen Jones comes over as a bit over-excitable - but not on this occasion.

FWIW it was more the fact that he compulsively lied and voted without much regard of actually reading the legislation for me,and Webb willingly stood in for the cowardly IDS,particularly over the penalty for having a so called spare room.

According to Chris Skidmore and his chums at the Telegraph, Corbyn is trying to rig an election...by opposing boundary changes and cuts to MPs to leave things as they are.

Skidmore is such a lightweight.

Good piece, what some of us have been thinking for a while.



That clever long game, of pushing everything through by whipping art 50 without conditions.

The plan is to be fractionally more Remain-y than the Tories. That and to be deliberately obscure, with spokespersons contradicting each other everytime they open their mouths, giving everyone a bit to pin their hopes on. It has worked a treat.

Utterly disastrous for the UK, but hey ho.

There are at least three logical inconsistencies in one paragraph there,to be fair.
