I think they just put a token person in because they have to.

Labour are odds 1/200 to win this seat. So my vote as useless as always.

 

your vote is only useless if you fail to cast it

Hallam: LibDem 1/3 Labour 9/4 and Tory 18/1

Wow, those are very generous odds!  It's an absolute certainty that Hallam will vote for the proverbial donkey in an orange rosette this time.

You are probably right, but Olivia Blake has run an impressive campaign.

 

I think she might get close.

It's true that YouGov do have Hallam down as a Lib/Lab or possibly 3-way marginal.

 

If only Labour had fielded someone like Ms Blake in 2017.

Well that's a "dog bites man" story, isn't it?  Literally and figuratively.

The headlines,   5-3 to the Conservatives with 2 score draws.

It was difficult today as many of the tops could be taken either way depending on your position. I balanced the 'i' with the 'The Times' as they were either side of the same coin. The Independant not on the Guardian list again.

 

The i goes with “Corbyn closes on Johnson as race tightens”

The Independant - "Child left waiting 57 hours for a bed in A&E. "

 The Mirror: “Johnson saw my son’s death not as a tragedy but as an opportunity”.

 

The Guardian – “Our collective humanity is being put on trial” “most important election in a generation”  

The FT says Boris Johnson is “ready to shake up overseas aid” if the Conservatives win.

 

The Telegraph declares Johnson would “get tough on serious criminals”.

The Times -  “Tory lead narrows ahead of final election rallies”

The Mail really pours it on: “Britain’s future down to the wire”.

The Express - Labour shadow minister said he “can’t stand” Jeremy Corbyn.

The Sun officially endorses the PM: “Boris ticks all the boxes”.

You're right I believe Ash.  Even if the Conservative candidate in this seat was squeaky clean, they wouldn't get in.   Apart from the huge traditional Labour vote, Brexit and Ukip are fielding candidates wich will split pro Brexit voters.

Free Internet has kind of swung it for me

 

If free beer was on the maifesto I'd definitely vote Labour 

 

But swaying towards labour

A vote is never useless, not voting is.

OK, I said useless, but meant almost useless.

 

Can you both not see that if I lived in a different ward (Say Hallam as a good example which is a 3 horse race) - my vote IS worth placing if I prefer 1 of 3 parties. Now, there is so little chance of it happening, that general voters voting the same as they do every time, means that my vote is ALMOST useless.
