I've been bigging up Lib Dem diversity in the New Statesman

It would be lovely if everyone could follow this link and give the article some love. Thank you all!

I wish they would stop remaking my favourite films

The Usual Suspects

How many times do we have to beat Zac Goldsmith?

Here in Richmond Park, we've been wondering who will be the Tory candidate in the GE. James Cracknell's name has been mentioned several times and the shortlist of 3 is announced today.

Rumour has it that one of those names will be ... Zac Goldsmith.

Which begs a number of questions. Not least, why would all those folk who voted against Zac 5 months ago now change their mind and vote for him this time? He remains

a) A Brexit enthusiast and
b) The Tories are still pushing the third runway plan, which is why he resigned in the first place.

Indeed in many ways I would be quite keen if it is Zac. We do know how to beat him - and if he rejoins the Tories his claim to be a man of principle will be very hard to sustain.

I guess we'll find out later today....

25th April Update

Zac has indeed been shortlisted. Blimey

Why isn't anyone running this poster....?

...other than me, that is?

Spread Betting prediction

Here's the spread betting prediction for the election.

and remember mine...

Tories 337
Labour 205
SNP 48
Lib Dems 35
Others 25

Sporting Index have ignored 'others' but this would suggest they expect them to get 19 - a bit low.
