    Is there some reason why someone from bristol can't do the basic thought required? You are not in vauxhaull either - and you can? Odd post. Here's the figures for all to see.

    An FBPE wave that could overturn a 20,000 majority would be quite a thing. Historically unprecedented I'd have thought.

    It's not an odd post. What I am saying is what is it three years of watching the political class demonstrate that it doesn't know one end of a telescope from another - locallized weather conditions are going to be a bigger factor than people think

    I hope Miwk Gapes keeps his seat. Then he can build ChUK into a party, taking MP's from the South and MP's from the North, all mixed together to make MIWK.

    Of course it's real :eek::confused::mad: Do you doubt the Majesty of Miwk Gapes?

    **in the actual speech he says Bailey's, not Miwk. But apart from that it's all real.

    Nah. She's got a massive majority, and most of those are not going to suddenly turn libdem or tinge just because of brexit. They will vote for her because she is labour. They will mostly have heard of her, at least, which is more than you can say for many mps. Looking her up, she nominated John McDonnell for the leadership in 2010. She's no new labour stooge - my guess is that many voters will quite like her.

    The schism in the Labour party is a different fish, on EUrope ain't nothing so bad a song round the piano of the coach and Horses can't hold together, but the Labour/ New Labour thing that's ripe, and Brixton "s a bit gentrified these days ain't it.

    Think some will have a go at deselection

    Bit like Islington since Corbyn has been an MP? Surely a big chunk of the new people will want a radical MP? I'd be amazed if Hoey were deselected, and even more amazed if she didn't keep most if not all of her majority at the next election.

    Despite being very strongly remain, Labour's London seats are not about to be gobbled up by some new 'centrist' remain group. In terms of getting into power, that's not Labour's problem, mind you - far more of a problem I would have thought in leave areas such as the Black Country.

    She's already had a vote of no confidence and if any Labour MP gets deselected it will surely be her. What happens after that is anyone's guess - she could keep the seat as an independent, especially as the worst sort of people linked to Progress would flock to what they think is a safe seat.

    I wouldn't be amazed if she was deselected tbh - but there's also a good chance there won't be a selection anyway, as she'll be automatically reselected if there's a snap election.

    Is that the one that happened last year?

    She's been a bit odd recently in her voting - voted against May's deal last time it was up, having previously voted for it.

    To be honest, I've got a feeling that, if anything they will split the Tory vote and not the Labour vote.
