Interesting article on the public's view of nationalisation of various services from a YouGov survey.

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/labour-party-election-corbyn-leader-polls-nationalisation-a9248511.html?amp

It does seem that nationalisation has support, even from a considerable amount of Conservative voters. It could be a vote winner in the future away from Brexit but only if done sensibly and in a very structured way. For example, the railways as the franchises end. This already has a bit of history as when various franchises have been taken over by the MoT temporarily, they have improved and been run well before then putting to franchise again.

Another Labour moderate (Kinnock Jnr.) flagging up Labour’s hard left’s issues with patriotism this morning.
Kinnock, like Flint, Nandy and a few others actually got it (although probably a bit too late in the day). That they got serious flack and were vilified by their colleagues tells us all we need to know.

IndoMike, as he always is, was absolutely all over the place. One minute he was getting his excuses in early for the forthcoming thrashing, the next he was back in cloud cuckoo land and hung parliament territory.

If I had some spare time I'd go back and copy and paste a few prized items. If anyone can be arsed, please do, it'll make for hilarious reading.
Yawn. Boring .
