Surely you should want him to hang on if you want a labour government as they stand a much better chance going up against him in an election. If he resigns/steps down, you may get some much more formidable opposition.
It's a great pity the right of free speech isn't based on the obligation to say something sensible.
You never know what might happen in a local election. Several Tory seats went to Labour last time. Only time and the voting will tell, I guess. On the radio this morning, after several polls, many Tories apparently said that they would change their allegiance because of what’s currently happening in No. 10, as well as several other “promises” that haven’t happened.
I just know that the Tories will no longer get my vote in the local or the general elections in future.
You should vote for a party's policies rather than an individual. However, I certainly won't be voting for a party with a limp and weak leader, or one where there is the slightest chance of Angela Rayner becoming leader of the country.
I do vote for a party’s policies but I also expect them to keep to what they’ve said they’ll do. I’m in a Conservative area and had always voted Conservative before. I also won’t be casting a “red” vote,
Mind you, to be honest, I think they’re all as bad as each other.
"The BBC is to spend £50 million on market research over the next four years in a bid to discover what viewers want.
... If the Beeb really doesn’t know what viewers want, I can tell them for free. It’s a simple shopping list of great drama, especially period romances; thrilling crime mysteries; comedies that actually make us laugh; and dialogue that doesn’t rely on repetitive foul language.
... And the topmost item on the list, say correspondents to the Daily Mail, need not cost anything at all. We all just want to be able to hear the actors. Nothing infuriates people more than mumbled dialogue or background music that drowns out the cast. The BBC1 crime serial Shetland was castigated for this recently, and series including Happy Valley and Jamaica Inn have been heavily criticised in the past. Bad sound can make television drama unwatchable — yet when challenged, BBC bosses blame the viewers. Some moaners need to get their hearing aids checked, they say, and others might need to invest in a new TV set. That adds insult to injury. It’s unhelpful, it’s arrogant and it’s wrong . . . because as the official body for recording technicians, the Institute of Professional Sound, pointed out last year, the real culprits are directors who think mumbling is somehow more authentic.
