Reader’s Comment of the Week
In response to Cerberus’s Election Watch: Corbyn’s Young Turks need to turn out in their droves to stop May, Colkitto03 wrote:
“The bookies are usually much more accurate than the pollsters. As of 5 mins ago they are predicting:
Conservatives 360 seats
Labour 210 seat
Liberals 10 seats
SNP 46 seats
Northern Ireland not included (but about 8-10 of them always support the Tories)
That is a 60-70 seat majority. A Tory Majority is still 1/5 on.
Interesting to see how this maps with what happens in a week’s time. Of course the bookies predicted 290 seats for the Tories last election but they were more accurate than any poll.”
TCW Hero of the Week
Home Secretary Amber Rudd took on the right-on Cambridge mob that masqueraded as the ‘impartial’ audience of the BBC’s election debate this week. After abuse hurled at her outside the venue, Rudd could hardly find any escape inside the debating hall itself – being booed and jeered at every opportunity But she still managed to get her points across in a controlled, restrained manner. While this kangaroo court showed the BBC up to be the lefty front it really is, it proved Rudd has courage – a good quality in a senior minister.
TCW Villain of the Week
Diane Abbott. If there were a word of the final week before polling day, it would be ‘Abbotting’, a term reserved especially for the most idiotic of lefties. Such displays of gob-smacking ignorance were seen in Corbyn’s Woman’s Hour blundering over the cost of his childcare plans, Shadow Education Secretary Angela Rayner’s LBC floundering and Abbott’s meltdown over police numbers – clearly a fantastic few weeks for Labour’s so-called stars. We would rather not imagine what would become of the country if this bunch of clowns flukes a win on Thursday.
