What more evidence do they need? What more proof do the Labour leadership and its supporters require? This was not an opinion poll.
Funny that suddenly everyone seems to have forget that polls were giving Tories a 20% lead. Actual result: 11% lead. Turn out: 26%!

The Starting Point
Attlee and his Ministers
… to meet the significant economic and social challenge we face…requires a government with the sort of progressive reforming zeal typified, albeit in very different ways, by Clement Attlee or Tony Blair.
Observer Editorial.April 9 2017i
… your editorial (“May must focus on deep-seated structural ills, not just Brexit”) last week mentions Clement Attlee and Tony Blair in the same breath: leading, progressive, reforming governments with zeal, “albeit in very different ways”. Not half.
Before his government, though bankrupt, founded the National Health Service and built more than a million homes, Attlee, who was voted the greatest prime minister of the 20th century, became and called himself a socialist.
Thus, Attlee is not an easy figure for New Labour or an Observer editorial to appropriate.
On the other hand, Blair’s toxic legacy was to prolong Thatcherism…
The implied comparison between Jeremy Corbyn, Blair and Attlee is invalid, though, because Blair was not trying to return a belief system to its roots, which Corbyn is, those roots being closer to the socialism of Attlee than the New Labour of Blair.
Perhaps Mt Trump will be in receipt of similar reports from his CIA resident in London.
´´Óbservers Agree that the Election campaign has been relatively quiet and attribute this to a serious British Electorate thinking hard about the issues.´´
The British Electorate may deliver a trump style FU moment to the British and international Neo-Liberal Establishment. It has been shown that in spite of David Cameron and George Osbourne assuring we in the Precariat that we are all in this together we have seen the huge rises in the wealth of the top of society and particularly of the Bankers whose bacon we saved back in 2008.
The NHS is not safe with Theresa May and her Neo-Liberal Fake conservatives
Brexit is not safe with Theresa May and her Fake Neo-Liberal Tories
The truth and freedom of speech are not safe with Theresa May and her Fake Neo-Liberal Tories.
Moore asks his audience permission to read something he had just written in the official Hotel recommended to acts appearing at the hosting theatre, he sits at a desk with his ring bound folder. A scholarly setting redolent of fire side chats beloved of broadcaster continuity over festive holidays. Suitably posed Moore reads his freshly penned polemic and it is this polemic which appears on the Internet. Top trending on reddit and hurriedly ripped and pasted around the web the source of course missing. Rumours abound that it is not even Moore speaking these words. The words he speaks are powerful and cut through to the essence of the deep anger sadness and confusion of the American people. This righteous anger Moore concludes will lead to ´´The biggest Fu ever delivered´´. A Trump Victory in the presidential race of 2016.
In a strange way, Theresa Mat is the Fake Tory Neo-Liberal Version of Hilary Clinton, a terrible candidate with an appallingly low-grade front bench. In truth the Tories are in the midst of the same Bastard problem that John Major battled with. Boris Johnson wobbles goofily in the back ground waiting to unleash his own brand of incipid entitled privilege on the unsuspecting ´´Thoughtful´British Electorate.
Don’t Get Fooled again.
