  1. There’s something to look forward to – the interviews with Lucas about the Green manifesto. Not sure they’ll be quite the car crash that Natalie Bennett’s were though.

  2. The TV interviews were much better than the TV “debates” last time round. Not least because the questioning was so much more challenging rather than general.

    The only think good about the TV debates was to hear people saying “I agree with Nick…”

  3. Regardless of the absence of May from the debates which I understand will take place without her I do expect that Farron will takes a pasting over his gay sex sinner views.

    Also, the blinkered media should make sure that issues of universal and pressing importance to the entire population are discussed, such as the Laurie Penny article today in the Guardian pointing out that robots are racist and sexist.

  4. Someone needs to explain to PennyRed (in very simple words said slowly) that Iain Banks’ Culture novels are fiction.

    “Regardless of the absence of May from the debates which I understand will take place without her I do expect that Farron will takes a pasting over his gay sex sinner views.”

    Which is ironic as it’s exactly what we want liberals to be in government – you’re allowed to have your mad, crazy opinions, but you’re not allowed to impose those opinions on others.

  6. I think May is spot on here – Apparently according to ‘Metro’ this morning, she will agree to debates provided the format changes – my guess is she would be up for a debate between just her and Corbyn or between her, Corbyn and Farron.

    The last debate in 2015 was a disgrace. Farage the only vaguely sensible one on the platform and 5 people spouting what the great Mr Ecks would call ‘cultural Marxism’ – allowing 5 people talking rubbish to ‘out shout’ 2 talking vague sense is not my definition of a debate by any stretch. I look forward to them trying to ’empty chair’ her – the only people affected by it would be them.

  7. BraveFart – “Also, the blinkered media should make sure that issues of universal and pressing importance to the entire population are discussed, such as the Laurie Penny article today in the Guardian pointing out that robots are racist and sexist.”

    The entire socially acceptable, government approved state of mind rests on Not Noticing. You can’t be employed in most places unless you are willing to Not Notice.

    It is hard to programme computers not to notice.

    It turns out six month old babies are racist too. Who would have guessed? Time for a massive government intervention to stop White parents poisoning the minds of their offspring in utero.

  8. It’s going to be wall to wall election for the next 8 weeks. 24/7 drivel on the TV. Most of which will be repetition of a few very simple points. And the result of all this? Slight increase in the blue tie /rinse count, and the end of the nonsense of a second referendum. Yawn.

  9. gobsmacked – and the day after the election there will be those organising a march against the new government, there will be thousands crying that the wrong party won, that the vote was unfair, how 75% of the voters wanted someone else etc…
    Usual drivel.

  10. A TV debate is not appropriate as it makes a parliamentary election look like a presidential election.

  11. When the media are mostly controlled by the opposition it makes sense for a politician to expose herself to that Media only if she believes that the media’s lies and distortions about what she says, does and even wears will assist her campaign.

    If May said ‘yes’ in an upbeat manner, the BBC would say she screamed out ‘no’ like the wicked old harridan she is.

    Trump is a master at getting the media to act like the arseholes they are. I hope May has learned from him.

  12. You should want those rallies and protests after the election Martin. They do more to discredit the loonies than any words could.

    Caroline Lucas will sound reasonable in debate, but her real anti-democratic leanings are exposed when she doesn’t like a result.

  13. There are some of us out here who have been quietly plodding along doing county council election things, and then St. Theresa decides to turn half the country upside down. Couldn’t she have waited just 17 days? I can see people turning up on 4th May to vote thinking they’re voting for an MP, and people not turning up thinking they will vote on 8th June instead. And Mr Speaker is rummaging around behind the Commons sofa looking for the procedures to postpone Gorton which is still legally fixed on the tracks to elect somebody to a Parliament that will have been dissolved the previous day.

    I learned a new word yesterday: Supersedeas.

    The fact that Richard Murphy describes her as ‘a true heroine of our times’ ought to give most people food for thought. A really nasty piece of work.
