His seat really is one of the handful (nearby Richmond Park being another) where tactical voting for the LibDems is justified.

Corbyn faces a steady, often hostile, media barrage, questioning him on things he's already answered.
Johnson is let out a bit Wiltshire and is treated with the care given a delicate flower.

I am working through an online first aid refresher thing I have to do before a practical session tomorrow and I'm slightly concerned that one of the upcoming topics is 'Amputation'.

In fact, looking again, it is somewhat bizarrely called 'Amputation/Removing a splinter'. After you, doctor.

All joking apart,lives are dependent on the result of the election and I don't do hyperbole;both in terms of length and quality.The Tories have been honest in their priorities in that the economy comes first before peoples' welfare and despite their bollox and supposed inherent superiority in that regard they are economically incompetent.Death and harm of the ascribed no longer vulnerable is a price worth paying.I think that is arse about face.For all it's faults Labour tries,give them a chance.Vote Labour.

Three local council byelections last week:

North Norfolk DC - LibDem hold with just under half the vote in a ward which returned just a single LibDem in May after boundary changes but in its previous two member form had been dominated by them since the 1990s. However it was a close result on this occasion as the LibDems dropped by 15% and there was a swing of over 16% to the second placed Tories (to give some perspective, they were slaughtered here earlier this year - taking just half a dozen seats - after winning over two thirds of councillors in 2015) Labour down slightly with around 9%.

Wiltshire - LibDem gain from Tory in a straight fight with 58% of the vote, a swing of approaching 15% since 2017. This division voted LibDem in the inaugural 2009 unitary elections, the winner then was re-elected in 2013 as an Independent before their retirement two years ago saw the Tories take the seat. Tories were only slightly down on their share then, but both Labour and Greens polled significant shares and their standing aside now plainly benefited the winners.

Oxfordshire CC - Green gain from Independent which meant they moved from fifth and last place two years ago to first now, almost quadrupling their share to just over 40%. This division was won comfortably by the sitting Independent in both 2013 and 2017 (and indeed before that when the similar seat pre boundary changes is considered) In 2013 UKIP came second (fairly distantly) but did not stand subsequently and the LibDems (third last time) also sat this one out - a new Independent tried to emulate their former success but scored 19%, a full twenty points down, meaning the Tories moved into second place with a six point increase in their vote. Labour dropped 4 points to 8%.

Just the one (Welsh) contest to begin this month, and that's it before GE day.

Yougov MRP sorted by estimated Brexit Party share. A Con/BXP pact in these seats might have delivered a serious blow to the 'red wall' (or it might've pushed some of those voters back to Labour we will never know for sure).

Did anyone watch C4 Dispatches? I saw the second half.

The children were so lovely and it struck me that their parents would have been just as lovely before Life kicked the stuffing out of them.
