The Conservative Party raised almost three times more than Labour in donations ahead of the General Election
Mmm and where does their money come from ??? Not from coffee mornings...

However feet on the ground counts for more than money.

That's good news for Labour, they just need to make it last for up to 5 years now.

They also learn not to trust those who promise and don't deliver. Clegg knows all about that.

This is what you get with Labour:

This doesn't automatically have to happen though. Generally these people acquire property, mortgages and start to earn more and in turn they vote Tory. But home ownership continues to decline amongst the young and generally wages are stagnating.

The big reason for Labour improving is the 25 to 39 groups had a strong turnout and were more Labour than usual.


Age is still the deciding factor but it's getting older and older.

DUP MPs threaten to walk away from deal to prop up Theresa May's minority Government on eve of Queen's Speech
The Democratic Unionist Party last night threatened to walk away from a deal to prop up the minority Conservative Government on the eve of the Queen’s Speech.
Senior DUP sources in Belfast said the Conservatives had to give “greater focus to discussions” about a confidence and supply deal which Theresa May needs to govern.
Last night there was speculation that the Conservatives could even open talks with the Liberal Democrats’ 12 MPs about supporting the Tory Government if the DUP talks fail.
The news is a significant blow to the authority of Mrs May who said hours after the election that she would seek a deal with the DUP’s 10 Westminster MPs after she failed to win a majority of MPs in the House of Commons.

As for Labour 'spending all their money' , I think you'll find they have a lot more resources than the Tories; Labour party membership 517,000, Conservatives 150,000 (decreasing by the day due to the inevitable effects of old age....)
Absolute rubbish. They have no resources : They want to borrow more and more money. I know this and haven't even read their absolute drivel Manifesto.

Re: The 2017 General Election

A reminder to those who need it, of just what sort of character the Shadow Chancellor is

Quote:
... As Nick Robinson says in the interview above, McDonnell is trying to have it both ways: telling Radio 4 he opposes violence and yet riling up the protesters in the Morning Star. Remember, this is the same John McDonnell who described the student rioters “kicking the sh*t out of Millbank” as “the best of our movement“.
https://order-order.com/2017/06/21/m...e-right-angry/

Can you imagine the sort of abuse, demands to resign, etc etc etc that would be hurled at any Tory who uttered such words? The silence from our Labour chums is deafening isn't it. Apparently for some folks it's OK to be a nasty hypocrite as long as you're a rose tinted one. The caps fits and they certainly wear it with pride.
