I listened to most of it.

Nick tried to push him on loads of things. He deflected as you would expect. 

When asked about the move of the NHS from a free at point he said any party that tried to do that would be finished and again said its all not true. 

Other than that get brexit done, been quoted out of context on single mothers, letterboxes ect

Boris Johnson on LBC during the interview said the victims of the recent flooding were given £5000 in terms of compensation.

Turns out it was £500. But Diane Abbot is shit at maths.....

It wasn't even that much around our way. My cousin's entire downstairs was under a foot of water for about a week(it's still nowhere near drying out) and she was given £200 by the government, and later another £150 from a charity collection for flood victims).

That’s shocking. Apparently you can ask for a grant of up to £5000. So nice of them

850,000 watched the Channel 4 debate, 2.5m people watched the Michael Gove video

And this is how you win an election.  The Tories turned the story from Johnson being frit, to Michael Gove not being allowed into the debate.  The Tories are running a despicably low-rent campaign, but it's working.

I know we need to take the various polls run with a pinch of salt, but the Mail have a story up about how the Tories had a majority of over 80 seats last week, and now it's down to 12. If true, there is a lot of parallels to the way May through away what many felt was a nailed on majority....

May lost on dementia tax imo if they chuck it away it will be down to being actually shit not policy issues.

The mail was running the whole "dont count on winning still vote" headline my guess is this is more of the same. 

Im quite happy for a coalition government that includes the Dems, if for no other reason than to reign in some of the more crazy policies from the other two

The debate was an hour long, the Gove vid was a few minutes.  I and others have seen the Gove vid (and the one where he is shown up by a 15 year old activist) but didn't think "Ooh I must vote for his party".  They're clearly pushing the "Banned by the establishment" narrative but the views don't really translate to winning people over.

I hate politics, don't know who to vote for, and need advice. Take it this is the wrong place to be. 

I rather think this election is about who you want to vote against as much as who you want to vote for. I'm seeing a lot more talk about tactical voting than in previous elections.

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/who-vote-general-election-quiz-20977036  There are plenty of other quizzes like this to help you.  Think about what is the most important issues to you and see who pledges to do what sounds good to you.  When it comes to voting, I think of the most vulnerable person I know and vote for which party that I think will make their lives better.  If you think your life has been made better over the last 9 years by the government, stick with them.

I like the public transport analogy.  You know exactly where you want to end up, but there probably isn't a bus going that stops exactly where you want.  So you see which bus gets you closest and you get that one.  If there isn't any buses going near to your destination, then don't get a bus.

Take notice of what’s written on the bus as well.

At least the front. Can probably just ignore what’s written on the side
