    No and Tess was a bit slow off the mark. Some of the actions of Labour types have been bordering on reckless though and Corbyn himself has been very cynical.

    In other news the EU negotiations start today.

    Some of the actions by Conservative types have been bordering on reckless though and May herself has been very cynical.

    There were more practical things to do than go down there and look sad, but yeah I think it's an area for improvement.

    It would be too simple just to blame them being shit at that for them to lose a huge twenty points in just over five weeks.

    Agreed. Clearly most of the twenty points were made in the election campaign. But this fire, or more specifically the terrible policies before and response after, has got them ahead.

    We don’t see those costs in the same way as we see a fire’s victims; we will never know the name of the guy who was killed in a car accident because he had to live far from work because rents rose because regulators required sprinkler systems.

    Miranda Devine is insane. A few years ago she was a reasonable person with right wing views, but she is now just totally bonkers.

    Oh you meant about the EU. Thought it was to do with the tower.

    God yes, they've been awful. Of course opposition is no better on that front.

    So YouGov isn't part of the grand Tory conspiracy then? It's tough to keep up with you lot.
