    Project Fear re Labour economic policies is irrelevant. It's all about Brexit.
    If only it really was just about Brexit. Silly old, piffling little England and her Brexit.

    It's about not being on the hook when the major German banks start failing, along with all the other Eurozone banks that have escaped any meaningful regulation for 20 years.

    Simple fact is, Labour are unelectable with a loony lefty as leader.

    I guess most of the membership, who voted for Corbyn, are too young to remember Michael Foot and how well that turned out.

    If there was going to be Eurozone trouble, it would have been 2012.

    Jezza should be in his jim jams at that time, I don't think he has the mental stamina for all this, getting boiled by the TV lights for a couple of hours.

    Still I expect him to do that odd shouting a few words thing. Most folk think he's a fruitloop, I expect him to reinforce that.

    So what was that about honesty?.
    The lies, falsehoods and misrepresentations of Boris Johnson and his government.
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    So which one are actually lies then?

    And, more to the point, where is the list from the Labour side or the Scots Nats or the lib Dems? Actually, forget the Lib Dems, they don't have a clue anyway.

    Pick one at random "NHS Cuts" appear routinely from all three. There haven't been any, the most you can say is that demand is growing faster than the allowed budget: a budget that is, incidentally, ring-fenced. That is down to a lot of factors, not least allowing GPs to opt out of patient care so people go to A&E with a cold. Actually that is a trivial one. How about 60% of NHS spend is not on patient care and a huge amount of that is paying PFI contracts let under Labour under Blair and Brown.

    Our myriad current troubles didn't start two months ago. Unlike Johnson.
