And a Yellow warning for Monday, though thankfully no sign of Amber.

A powerful piece from Robin Lustig on Corbyn and the anti-semitism issue. One of the best I've read.

http://lustigletter.blogspot.co.uk/2018 ... s-and.html

Fair to say he's not impressed with Corbyn!

Interesting bit of insight into Theresa May's whistle stop Brexit tour from Wales online:

https://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/poli ... ssion=true

Quote:
We had to submit one question for Theresa May in advance of her Wales visit and this is what happened
Our chief reporter was given the chance to quiz the Prime Minister - briefly - when she was in Wales

/how-did-arron-banks-afford-brexit ?


'The Bad Boy Who Bought Brexit ! '

https://www.opendemocracy.net/uk/brexit ... ord-brexit

Still under investigation . OF COURSE !

At least one friend of the above before brexit etc , in 2004 --

One of the dirty tricks was a sting operation in St Kitts and Nevis. SCL filmed the opposition leader, Lindsay Grant, being offered a bribe by an under-cover operative posing as a real-estate investor. Grant didn’t exactly help himself by accepting the bribe and even suggesting which offshore bank accounts the money could be paid into.

The same year, SCL and Kalin worked together on an another election campaign, this time in St Vincent and the Grenadines. (SCL tells clients they don’t lose. Not true: they lost this one.) There, they worked with Arnhim Eustace, leader of the opposition. SCL billed Eustace’s New Democratic Party (NDP) more than $4 million, including $100,000 for ‘counter operations’.

Wait until you're sitting in bed to drink it. It can work quite quickly.

Just one local council byelection yesterday:

Knowsley - Labour hold of an extremely safe ward with approaching 80 per cent of the vote, though the boundaries were a bit different before the 2016 all-out elections a similar ward not only consistently returned Labour councillors in every election since the previous 2004 all-outs but always by huge majorities and in one case (2014) unopposed. Two years ago three Labour members were duly returned, with the sole opposition coming from a Green who polled roughly a quarter of the vote overall - Labour managed a modest increase since then whilst the same Green candidate dropped back markedly to less than 9%. Still second, though, a UKIP candidate was narrowly behind (a decent showing for them these days, indeed the mere presence of a kipper candidate is becoming noteworthy enough) followed in last place by the Tories on about 5%, similar to their only recent showing here in a previous 2011 byelection.

Four contests next week to kick off April.
