    Thanks for that mate.

    Labour are currently unelectable. A Labour government in 2020 is as likely as flying pigs.

    The 2020 GE Will definitely be won by the tories. Corbyn will and cannot win ... He literally just said he can become the next prime minster .... Killing myself laughing

    I'll be honest I voted for him last year because I thought he was a breath of fresh air (even if he is old). But as much as I like some of his policy, it's his persona which makes him unelectable. British elections are increasingly becoming much more presidential in style where you vote for the pesonality.

    Corbyn says he has a massive mandate and should lead Labour into the GE. But his mandate is mostly those frustrated youthful left-wingers to my knowledge or infiltrators from other parties. A huge proportion of people who voted in the Labour leadership last year didn't even vote Labour in the 2015 GE.

    "Around 70,000 people who voted in the leadership election did NOT vote Labour in May's general election. 40,000 of them voted Green. Fully 92% of these Green voters backed Mr Corbyn. We estimate that the other non-Labour voters were: Liberal Democrats: 10,000; Conservatives: 3,000; Ukip: 3,000; other parties 6,000; did not vote 8,000."

    That's a YouGov study from last year.

    If the whole country was made up of 17 year olds, then he'd have a chance.

    I don't really know where I'm going with this post, but there's an argument and a point in there some where

    Watching PMQs from yesterday, one has to have a heart of stone not to feel sorry Corbyn, May totally wiped the floor with him. Liked that question from Jamie Reed, the look on Corbyns mug was priceless, just like when Hillary Benn made his speech about Syria.

    I applaud the Court of Arbitration for Sport upholding the ban on Russian Track and Field Athletes taking part in the Olympics. All Russians should be banned from the Olympics, except for those who have lived outside Russia and can prove they have had fair testing (who compete under the Olympic flag). FIFA should move the 2018 World Cup to another country (Australia perhaps?).

    That would leave Europe with no World Cups for 20 years. The natural one to go back to would be the 2nd-placed bid from Portugal and Spain.

    First the IMF admit that they overhyped their brexit claims, now the BoE has joined in saying there is no real sign of adverse economic effect. Who next?

    You'd almost imagine the Prime Minister has no intention of activating Article 50 and actually leaving anytime soon, and when we do we may well stay in the free market anyway...

    As much as I'd like to see a World Cup in Australia it's more likely to go to England or Germany, or perhaps the US given the timescales now.

    The Australian season for rugby (x2) and AFL makes it hard to fit the WC around it, even though there are plenty of stadia in place.
