Somebody suggested Brexit wasn't one of the initial prompts in that poll. That would understate the Brexit score.
That seems to be the case, i.e. Farage's mob are underrepresented because, for whatever reason, this particular polling organisation chose not list them as a choice alongside the more established parties. A peculiar decision, since they topped a nationwide election only a few short weeks ago in May.

I'm not for a minute suggesting that things aren't a bit grim for Labour right now, but it certainly doesn't feel like the Tories are quite that far ahead, or anything like to be honest.

If the LibDems don't win back Sheffield Hallam now they really need to pack up and go home. ... B6SwuYvfV4
I suspect a general election will have been called before a by-election takes place in Sheffield Hallam. But either way, Labour may as well not bother turning up in this particular constituency for a few election cycles. What an absolute fiasco.

Moaning about the electorate in Norwich who didn't care about the real issues and told her Jez was no good.
Hello. Member of the Norwich electorate here. Unfortunately that tweet has disappeared, so I have no idea what it said, but to be fair, I would be saying that Jez is no good

‘Deselect Norwich’ was among the amusing suggestions on that thread. If Corbyn’s even tanking with left-leaning middle-class voters in Norwich alarm bells should be ringing. I doubt Norwich’s traditionally strong working-class Labour vote thinks any differently about him.

'Are we out of touch?'
'No, it's the voters that are wrong!'

It may not be fun or ideal or pleasing, but this is the fucking core of electoral politics.
And they have to be taught that we are right and they are wrong. This sounds like the depressing sort of conversation I've had more than once.
