Lies and lawbreaking

46 weeks ago @ http://www.conservativ... - Our survey. How Party ... · 0 replies · +1 points

I don't think the 4% majority in 2016 can be equated with "the overwhelming majority in favour of No Deal" in 2019. I don't think there has been a fundamental shift in opinion either way, even if polls indicate that any movement there has been has been in favour of Remain.

The biggest concern is the way in which trust in our institutions and processes has been eroded over the last two and a bit years, and that is why I find the insouciance with which Vote Leave's admission of law breaking has been greeted so alarming.

Overwhelming majority of whom? Conservative activists and ConHome readers do not command a majority in the Commons, which has been a hung parliament since 2017. The DUP have said they prefer Remain to No Deal if that would be different treatment between NI and GB, so where is this overwhelming majority. Even in 2016, the majority was less than 4%. If everyone is so positive that No Deal is so popular, why not put it to the test in a straight No Deal vs Remain referendum

I thought they were quoting the ConHome survey from last week which showed that snapshot of opinion

I wonder why they were deleted. There is a serious point about the desirability of trying to hush up the law breaking of Vote Leave, the shameful treatment of the whistleblowers by the BBC and people very close to the PM and whether as a party, we should not be concerned that the impression is given that a little law breaking is fine if it serves the wider objectives. That is the traditional Marxist approach, but not the Conservative approach.

The future public enquiry will be eagerly awaited when we finally have it. Perhaps we will need a truth and reconciliation commission in due course.

Totally agree on both points.

I note that my earlier comment and all the replies about Vote Leave admitting it broke the law have been removed by the moderators. Anyone would think they don't want people to talk about how this makes various prominent figures in Vote Leave unfit for public office

I was looking for the appropriate place to comment on this admission of law breaking. Funnily enough Con Home has subscribed to the Derek Draper school of news management and buried it on a busy news day

The main reason Corbyn is so keen for an election is that it gets him off the hook of having to call for/support a second referendum, which is notionally his party's policy

I'm not so convinced, but if you are right, that only makes the argument that we should have an election because Farage will do well even weaker
