Don't worry, it all changes when "reporting restrictions" around a general election kick in.
Yes, the BBC will be forced to lift their D Notice.

Another thing which, in all likelihood, will be done away with if the Tories get their way.

"Finally, we can liberate our brave, free press from irksome rules and red tape!", or some such nonsense.

Great, isn't it ? Corbyn has spent the last 18 months demanding an early general election, and he probably would do so still, had not wiser counsels on political strategy (fuck knows where they came from) prevailed. Now he says he won't agree to an election unless a "No Deal" crash-out from the EU is ruled out for all eternity. It's not a bad excuse, but it's usefulness ranks alongside Salome's seventh veil increasingly as time goes by.

Tactically, denying Johnson his desire for an election (the Tories are now demanding an election because they know they'd probably rinse Labour for no other reason than that Corbyn is just unacceptable) is quite a good idea in terms of avoiding a fourth successive election defeat. But it's a really difficult idea for Labour. We can't have an immediate election with Corbyn because we would be horrifically rinsed. But our leader is still saying "come and have a go if you're hard enough"

Best to just get the election over with, bring a merciful end to the Corbyn nightmare, and get on with re-building the Labour Party and the country,.

Not. A. Chance.

The only way Corbyn is going is when he ceases breathing. Rather like the old Soviet leaders.

Also, in the unlikely event of Corbyn stepping down you are still faced with the fact that the Tories will be in power, dismantling what's left of the UK to sell it to the highest bidder.

To be fair, Labour will be right to tell Swinson to fuck off.
And so they bloody should. Much as JC is a liability to the PLP, the thought of Screeching Swinson acting as kingmaker really annoys me.
