So Harry and Meghan taking to twitter and urging women voters to turn out in opposition to Trump isn't trying to influence voters ?
Trying to influence voters isn't the same as influencing them. Nobody gives a sh*te in America about what Harry and Meghan think, and why should they. In America they're just B grade talk show personalities. And I'm sorry to say that, because I always liked Harry. He should be in the UK doing good works , not farking around in America

I didn't say they could influence an election I said that their comments was made to Trump in a press conference, So imo a journalist asking Trump for his view on what was said makes it news worthy over there.
You liked Ali's list which was purely about H & M influencing.

This what Al said and i quoted:

" Au contraire. There is a fascination with our Royal family in Uncle Sam. Even something as inconsequential as Princess Eugenie’s wedding was the most viewed TV item over there when it happened."

Nothing in that quote about influence, All Al said is the Yanks do have a fascination with our royals.

His "au contraire" was in response to me saying that they had no influence. So he was contradicting what I said = he thinks they do have influence.
You liked that post so you agree with him. If you can't speak French then you have an excuse.

No I don't speak French as it happens, Hated it at school. Also I think many so called "Celeb" think they do have influence, You only have to look at their election in 2016 to see that, Whether people are influenced by them only those voters can tell you.

Labour takes 3pt lead in latest polls. First time Tories have been behind since Johnson became PM.

26 point deficit back in February, March time wasn't it? Only one poll that counts though and that's some way off yet.
Very true. Given Starter hasn't announced a single policy (to my knowledge), that is some fall in confidence / satisfaction in the Gov.

Starmer just needs to keep hammering the competence issue and keep the Corbyinite headcases confined to the backbenches.

He could conceively become PM by 'not being Johnson' in the same way that Biden might become President by 'not being Trump' but expect the Tory party to be ruthless and axe BoJo if that looks seriously likely in a few yrs.

Can't see Boris getting to the next election. As you say, the Tory MP's are ruthless and Boris's popularity within the Party has withered behind Sunak.
