    That's probably true in the seats the Tories hold or ones in which they have a chance of winning.

    In seats such as Leeds East, however, Shadow Justice Secretary Richard Burgon's constituency, most of those who would have voted Tory (in vain) may vote for the Brexit party instead.

    Presumably a firm commitment to the union is sufficient for some voters?

    Yep. Politics here is going the same way as Northern Ireland.

    Strange though because the union is very clearly not a Tory priority. I guess even lip service is an offer no one else can match.

    Labour saving the average family six grand has to be the most audacious lie of the campaign to date

    Could say a lot but apparently in the average family there are two parents with rail season tickets (67% of the B country drive to work), these families have kids needing full time childcare and kids at school (granted that obviously does happen), one of the parents needs a prescription each month.

    The figures that help Labour's case are done in actual basis but when it suits obviously we need real growth.

    Broadband costs will apparently be completely removed. Wasn't the pledge 2030?

    The Tories have been really the more honest of the two this campaign. And they've m not been close to honest.

    If that's the case can you explain the 50,000 more nurses thing to me because I honestly don't get it.

    FTR that is a load of shite too, as far as I can tell their claim that the policy will have 50000 more nurses than they otherwise would is reasonable but they've then tried to pass off 19000 of them as new nurses. So while it is bollocks it doesn't contain multiple levels of straight up lies in the form of giveaways

    The Tory manifesto pledge to put limits on judicial review is pretty dire.

    At least the Torys are being honest in their authoritarianism.

    Haha in a manner of speaking.

    The part of the manifesto in question almost literally says "We will allow judicial review to be used for purposes we like, but for purposes we don't like it must be stopped".
