I'm going to be surprised to Corbyn win no matter what lol
If it comes down to Corbyn vs Kendall/Cooper I could definitely see it.

If it comes down to Burnham vs Corbyn in the final round, I'd be very surprised to see Corbyn win. It depends entirely how many Burnhamites switch to put Corbyn first.
Burnham will have lost a lot of the left of the party but i think the centre would see him through to the final round probably.

You're saying a Tory in a red ribbon is worse than a Tory in a red ribbon.

1997 Blair wasn't a Tory. Minimum Wage and Parliamentary reform weren't Tory policies.

I'm saying a Tory in a red ribbon is the worst kind of Tory. As in worse than blue-ribboned Tories.

That is a good point but he certainly got more right wing as he went on and now he pops up every so often and says we need to occupy the 'radical centre'.

He might not be a tory but hes still really annoying.

Tony Blair is officially my idol, he's made a bunch of money, hangs out with sheiks/communist leaders/despots, owns a successful business and has been PM of the second greatest country on earth. He's who I want to be by the time I'm 30

You think Labour won't win in 2020? Pretty pessimistic.
They need the 4th largest swing in 19 elections and don't seem to have realised that the Scottish problem goes beyond right-left.

Statistically, chances are they won't have a majority.

Its not so much a matter of statistics (unless one is absolutely devoted to the pendulum theory). Its more a matter of 10 years being a long time to live under the Tories.

Is it really 10 years? The hard 5 were in coalition with the libs, this5 should be lighter, at least as far as the populace is concerned come the election. To me this suggests the absolutely unprecedented, a seat gain in two elections while in government.

The next 5 are going to be much harder. Osbourne will make sure of that. Also the next election will have a newly elected BoJo, May or Osbourne as leader.

One could also argue that the years from the crash in 2008 to 2010 were harder.
