True, but I still see that as a way of ensuring the sample is representative. In a way what you're doing is weighting the various demographics so that it reflects the "voting" population.

Man, what shitty situation we find ourselves in, in the UK. The only realistic two choices for our next Prime Minister are a rock (our lying, self-serving, flexibly principled current prime minister) and a hard place (a well meaning, highly principled fellow, who's laudable desire to make society more equitable is over shadowed by the fact that his economic policies will have the unintended consequence of completely destroying the UK economy). I'm open to ideas here?

I suppose I always have my Aussie passport as a backup....smiling smiley

Interested to see who would be your choice then as somebody who has an Australian passport?

Aussie politics aren't exactly admirable, or green policies. It's a statement of fact rather than having a go.

Survation is now putting the lead at 14 points and DeltaPoll 15 points.

It's possible Johnson's government may win a large majority, but Johnson himself lose his seat.

Johnson would seem to be 'Lords' material

But then I can see The House of Lords being abolished.

We agree there - I'd hope there is some reform in lots of constitutional areas in the next few years.

Seamus Milne must have been cringing at the audience laughing heartily at Corbyn as for the third time he clumsily avoided answering the most basic of questions "after you have negotiated a fresh agreement with the EU and you call a second referendum, would you campaign to Leave or Remain?"

He finished with a flourish - "I've made my Brexit position clear" - cue more laughter...

For a moment there, he seemed to be sweating almost as much as Prince Andrew.

The loudest laughter was reserved for Johnson on any trust issues.

Official FactCheckerUK: Boris was absolutely brilliant, Corbyn was useless.

There will be many more examples of remain and trade experts being right. But if leavers were not interested in details before, why would they be now?
