Fuck Andrew Neil. Johnson isn't going to do it and Neil knows that. It's too fucking late. He stuck Corbyn and Swinson out there and yelled over the top of them under the bullshit pretence that Johnson would get the same. He can stuff his Tough Guy (thumbs up) act up his arse.

These Andrew Neil interviews have been pretty good. Him going on about antisemitism for so long with Corbyn was frustrating but other that they’ve been alright. I’m really impressed they went in hard on Johnson at the end of tonight’s show, it would have been easy to just mention the fact he’s not agreed to an interview and move on. It may all be for nothing of course, but they’re pushing Neil’s little speech hard on the news and social media.

That's precisely the point. Where in his little three minute Twitter video does he mention pulling Johnson up on his numerous racist comments in the past? Nowhere. And considering he chose to put anti-semitism front and centre in the Corbyn interview, why wouldn't he put Johnson's *actual* racism front and centre in his video there?

I agree, but he could have done a 30 minute speech and not touched half the shit Johnson has done. And presumably Neil made such a big deal of antisemitism with Corbyn because it was in the headlines that day as the Chief Rabbi had written his piece in the newspaper.

The electorate doesn’t give a fuck about antisemitism yet it seems to be talked about all the time in the media

It's in the media all the time because the mainstream media is overwhelmingly right-leaning, and that's why Neil isn't doing his job properly and why his interviews are blustering shit. Anti-semitism *should* be an issue, but not in conjunction with a man who has campaigned against racism his entire career.

How much of a difference would a Johnson interview with Brillo actually make?  As has been said continually, vast swathes of Johnsons voter base already know or don't care that he is racist liar and will still vote for his party. I don't think it would make a significant difference anyway, what is changing opinion is Labour on the campaign trail, as AOC said, don't read polls, change them.

I just watched Fahrenheit 11/9 and an analyst on that talked about how many of Trump's voters didn't care if he was a liar, all they cared about was that they felt like he was on their side. Johnson's parroting of Get Brexit Done is comparable - he's appealing to the Leavers and that's really all he needs to do, many don't care if he's a racist and a liar. Neil 'revealing' what we all already know about Johnson is going to make no difference at all. If anything, Johnson has done one useful thing finally in his life and that's anger Andrew Neil.

Isn’t Andrew Neil paid by the Brothers Behind the Spectator who Johnson already does stuff far or have I got my tin foil hats crossed?

Yeah he is, have a look at James O'Brien's Twitterwhere he keeps asking Brillo how much they pay him to give Breitbart and Neo Nazis a voice.

Yep, straight from the Steve Bannon playbook.  Sickens me how people with nothing on the lowest rungs of society see Johnson as one of them.

I've just watched a report where people in unimaginable desperation are either not sure who they're going to vote for or even say that they like what 'Boris' is saying. I really don't understand how "not the Tories" isn't an automatic answer if you're one of these very unfortunate people. Somebody was so moved by the sight of a woman with 14 pence to her name and a pack of bacon, loaf of bread and two pints of milk to last her and her son a fortnight that she's just set up a crowdfunder for them and people in a similar situation. Even a couple of quid will make a lot of difference to these people.

I've just had a message from my mum asking about the best site to look at for tactical voting. Her constituency has a Tory incumbent and she doesn't much care who gets in, she just wants the Tory out. Going to be an uphill struggle because the Tory is the only one who's got the banners and billboards out, but she's a good mum for trying. Which link should I send her that'll help most?

Corbyn has just leaked a confidential report which has just proved Johnson's no border in the sea as bullshit, as if that will surprise anyone

That's by Best for Britain.  I'm sure there's one that's like a comparison site that pulls in multiple tactical advice sites, but I can't lay my hands on it.

And it probably won't make much difference. They've already got to work closing ranks and rubbishing the stuff he leaked before, putting the whole "It Woz The Russians Wot Done It" taint on them.
