If the huge swing to the Liberal Democrats of 19.3% was repeated across the country, it would wipe out Theresa May's majority and hand 26 seats from the Conservatives to the Liberal Democrats.
"Is that the point?" So asks Daniel Blake, the lead in Ken Loach's latest film pushed to breaking point by our labyrinthine benefits system. Obstructi...
Unable to take the big decisions or offer reassurance on the big issues she has left the country in a state of confusion over Brexit with our currency plummeting in value and our NHS in crisis. Rather than show leadership she threatens to be defined by her weakness - she offers no answers to the issues we face as a country and it is the British people who stand to lose out.
The 80s revival has been gathering momentum in recent years. The way things are going, it is possible that Glastonbury 2017 revellers will be able to see Howard Jones, Shakin' Stevens, Simply Red and Bros.
It is a bit rich for the man who made EU baiting and hating an Olympic sport to claim the BBC is obsessed with Brexit. If the BBC or anyone else is obsessed with Brexit it is because our exit from the EU is going to dominate the government's and therefore the media's agenda for probably the next three or four years.
It is a quirk of democracy that the achievement of power often diminishes your ability to speak freely. Luckily I am neither famous nor dependent on the votes of those who disagree with me, and so I can say what Gordon Brown could not...
Within the Tory ranks there are few if any genuinely big beasts around whom alternative camps may form, even though George Osborne is trying to position himself as one with his customary lack of subtlety. But the Premiership now is a poisoned chalice, with no way of avoiding fights as Brexit is navigated.
Setting out her One Nation agenda and making a clear break from the past, Theresa May used her first speech as Prime Minister to highlight the need to tackle social injustice. This rhetoric is welcome; but we must also be clear it can never translate into reality if the alarming situation in mental health is not resolved.
Theresa May's speech at the Tory Party Conference espousing "the good that government can do" has been interpreted as a political land-grab reposition...
When Amber Rudd recently announced that she would be continuing the purge of international students started by Theresa May, my heart sank. Brexit has already damaged universities and their ability to attract students and staff... To continue to include students in immigration targets would be to pursue an economically damaging, right wing ideology, based on dodgy evidence, against expert advice and without a mandate. Surely Brexit has enough of that already?
What kind of pluralist liberal democracy do we now live in, when the right-wing press wants to silence the 16million people who voted Remain for simply expressing doubts about how things are heading.
When Labour speaks - at the national, regional and local level - it needs to explain how government has been failing families across the board and how this can be fixed. A continued pre-occupation with austerity won't cut it going forwards.
Brexit has become Tory Brexit. They are using it as licence for the xenophobia that has long lain under the surface - but which is now in full view. I suspect that many of those who voted to Leave now look at the actions and rhetoric of the Tories and think "that's not what I voted for"... They didn't vote to lower their own living standards or to sacrifice jobs and investment. They didn't vote for our businesses to face tariffs or for holiday-makers to need visas. They didn't vote for the scapegoating of foreigners. I can confirm today that SNP MPs will vote against the Brexit bill when it come before the House of Commons next year.
Is the UK heading for divorce? Over one in three UK marriages ends in divorce, and with our nation in deep division over issues such as immigration, ...
Shami Chakrabarti is a hypocrite for sending her kids to private school, and this left-wing hypocrisy over education will destroy the Labour party.
There are Leave voters, as well as Remainers, who believe that the team chosen to deal with Brexit is so poor that it was deliberately selected to thwart the process. Though an amusing idea, I'm not convinced that this is true. However, whether by design or ineptitude, what we have seen from Theresa May and her team so far hasn't lifted her from the characterisation of Queen of the Omnishambles.
