Below the Line Comments Update

comments

Guido went to a system of registration for comment makers last December, above are the numbers for last month (August), comments are still averaging around some 50,000 a month. We’re slowly, when we have time, permanently banning the most boring obsessives. We have neither the time or inclination to pre-moderate comments. If readers see a comment they find particularly disagreeable, flag it.

Referendum Question: Remain or Leave?

eu-question

Guido suspects the out side will be happier with that phrasing…

UPDATE:

The Lobby has been briefed that David Cameron accepts the recommendation that voters in EU referendum be asked to remain in EU or leave, rather than ‘yes’ or ‘no’. The Bill will be amended accordingly…

UKIP & Greens Cheated Out of Peers

lords-ratioWhatever you think about the selection of peers there was a terribly undemocratic partisan bias in the Lords appointments:

lords-chart

For every 435,945 votes the Tories got they appointed a Lord, it took over a million votes to justify a Labour peer and a mere 219,624 for a LibDem peer. The second chamber of our democracy ignored the preferences of 5 million voters for the Greens and UKIP. Not a single peer between them – some democratic deficit…

Monbiot Skins & Cooks Squirrel on Newsnight

1 in 5 Corbyn Supporters Voted for Clegg

yougov-corbyn

Quick data dump from YouGov highlights some interesting points about Corbynistas – social media is their main news source and nearly 1 in 5 of them succumbed to Cleggmania in 2010 and voted in the Lib-Con coalition. YouGov politely describes them as a “more mobile protest vote”. Guido would describe them as the twitterati idiots. 

labLeadSpectrum02-01

YouGov found that Corbynistas are 5 times as left wing as ordinary voters. Other personality traits are equally unsurprising; two thirds describe themselves as dreamers and only 1 in 8 say they are good with numbers and concludes that “Put simply, this group is not going to be ‘reasoned with’ – they are looking to be inspired.” If the unreasonable crazies win, this is going to be fun..

juncker-mandleson

The Telegraph has got hold of Mandelson’s letter to Juncker’s “Head of Cabinet” Martin Selmayr. In it Mandelson is clearly establishing the terms for him pulling the strings for the “Yes to EU” campaign. Note the […]

CORBYN-RHYMES

This is beyond sublime, this is peak Corbynismo. 84 pages of left-wing paens to Corbyn.  Guido’s favourite by far is this from Nick Telfer:

Disappointingly not much of it rhymes, such is the modern way. Alec Finlay’s from ‘a better […]

Quote of the Day

William Hague on Tony Blair…

“To the political law that you can’t fool all of the people all of the time he added Blair’s law – that you can make a very serious attempt at it.”
