No. Recent polls suggesting most people have accepted it and wanting to just get on with it. Parties like the Lib Dems have largely refused too.

Not so sure about that. Additional voters may well be matched by the number of Labour voters who don't turn out. It will be interesting to see whether the entire Blairite vote moves on mass to the Lib Dems.

One has to assume someone will be coaching him on the answers no way will his record over the last 30 years not come up. The Corbyn always on the right side of history will make some interesting debates.

I don't believe that for a second. Certainly not borne out by my experience.

I think its more because people felt like they had no choice at this point.

Now they do have a choice, so I expect that to reverse swiftly.

If anything, I think people might had given up on any possibility of a second referendum and were trying to live with that.

Now however, anything is possible. So it all changes.

This could backfire, until voters realise the alternative is Jeremy Corbyn as PM. Though I despise them, it's a canny move if they can hold off the libdems turning it into a second referendum.

He simply cannot make himself palatable to the middle class remainers to make any significant gains (or to avoid huge losses), especially when there is a middle ground party willing to appeal to them. He looks likely to hit us so hard in the pocket. It makes it exceptionally difficult to put my normal X next to the rose. I am all for equality of opportunity and a properly funded NHS but can i really do so knowing it will directly cost me a significant sum per month for my household at a time when my kids are costing me a fortune and my income just covers my outgoings? I think i will have to vote lib dem or not at all. I don't see what choice i have. I cannot be alone as a relatively comfortable left of centre 40 year old but with limited slack in my household budget.

I think that's the interesting bit.....

As a self confessed Blairite this is what I'm going to have to wrestle with.

Corbyn is probably quite happy because he's got the entire summer off now.

Labour need to reverse policy on Brexit now in order to prevent this becoming solely about Brexit, I think, counter-intuitively. They need to go with their voters and come out against Brexit to enable them to make this about spending cuts, education and health.

As I understand it needs 2/3rds of MP's to agree to it. Given current polls Labour would be nuts to allow a general election now, I also don't see how it would help the SNP move towards independence when the Tories would be in longer.

Now the first are nuts and second made up largely of swivel-eyed loons so I'm guessing they'll go for it.

From Breakfast TV, 45% of Labour voters think Corbyn would make a better PM than Theresa May. lol

The only major party who has not come out in support is the SNP. It's happening. Plus a bigger Tory majority helps the SNP's quest for independence, so I suspect they'll back it when it comes to it tomorrow
