Even Michael Heseltine is in support of what David Lammy said about the ERG.

That's not exactly true is it. 

 

If you read what he says, nowhere does he liken the ERG to the Nazis, unless you're also suggesting he thinks EU Bureaucrats are like Nazis.. He said..

 

“The extremes of the ’30s were born of economic stress. And the thing that is driving the extremes of today is the fact that we’ve had, since 2008, frozen living standards, and people are looking for alibis. If you put together the bureaucrats of Brussels, the immigrants and the foreigners and the elite, all that sort of stuff – it’s got a sort of basic, chilling appeal for people who are desperately looking for an alternative. If you have a stagnant economy, you have to work your way to improve that economy.”

I think I read that 63 per cent of paid up Conservative party members are going to vote for a rival party in the EU elections. Many party activists are refusing to do any work for the local elections.

 

A party in meltdown and now a spent electoral force. A zombie party!

Is that the same place where you read that "Labour is about 10 points ahead of the Tories."

It was in at least 2 newspapers this weekend that Labour is 10 points in front.

Ah, yes, I found it in The Morning Star.  It was undertaken by ComRes.

 

I hope you agree with them, as they also did this one last week:

 

Most Brits think Corbyn’s handling of antisemitism row shows he’s unfit to be PM

ComRes poll reveals a major surge of voters saying the party has a big problem with Jew-hate in its ranks.

 

Quote

A staggering 55 percent of those polled agreed that the Labour leader’s ‘failure to tackle antisemitism within his own party shows he is unfit’ for Downing Street
