I hope your are correct although it appears that Corbyn is building a power base if not for him but his chosen successor. The moderates in the Labour party have a fight on their hands worse than when Kinnock fought off the Militant tendency. Momentum are embedded and not going anywhere.

Let's hope I am wrong we need a moderate centre left Labour party to keep the Tories honest.

Yep, this is the actual reality of it. Corbyn and McDonald are less interested in national power than they were root and branch embedding the far left into the party's power structures.

Momentum are the new Labour party and when Corbyn eventually goes the next leader will be less toxic perhaps but the party won't be changing its ideas.

And as the party power structures actually properly reflects its membership I don't really have a problem with that.

Local Conservative literature features a quote from Professor John Curtice,writing in The Times, that the "Polls teeter between hung parliament and slim Tory majority"

I don't see any significant movement towards Labour this time around when compared with the last election, so I'd be more inclined to think it'll be a modest Conservative majority. I'm just a pleb looking at online polls though, not Professor Plum, so who knows!

Dead rats posted to your political opponents, to intimidate their campaign staff.

Real classy acts running against the Conservatives in Chingford.

Yeah I voted Lib Dem FWIW in East Surrey to dilute conservative austerity. Pity it didnít happen in 2015 instead. Have to confess that I think I wouldíve preferred no referendum as well, but thatís because theyíve done everything to delay it, but itís going to happen finally at least.

Finding of a poll amongst Conservative members released today has revealed that 92% expect a Conservative-led government after the election, with 76% expecting an overall Conservative majority.

With respect a poll of Conservative members is hardly representative and is at best just guesswork

I suspect the figures are broadly representative of the Conservative membership as a whole,all of whom of course did not participate in the survey.
