Extrapolate that!

Brecon & Radnorshire voted to leave the EU by 51.9%-48.1% in 2016.

The by-election was triggered because the Conservative MP had been found guilty of committing expenses fraud. In their wisdom they put the very same man to stand as a candidate.

Plaid and the Greens stepped aside to allow the Lib Dems a clear run, in a Remain Alliance.

The Brexit Party took votes away from the Tories.

It looks like Labour voters voted tactically for the Lib Dems, preferring that to seeing the Conservative win the seat.

With all those factors at play, if anyone reckons they can workout what will happen in a General Election from this result, then they are better than me. (this could be the case)

Have you been sacked & then promoted?

I’m surprised more hasn’t been made of Boris Johnson’s cabinet appointments of Dominic ‘contempt of parliament’ Cummings, Priti ‘trade deals on hols’ Patel & Gavin ‘national security’ Williamson. Does this happen in the real world, have you been sacked only to go back to the same company a few months later in a more senior position? Let me know via the comments button or @anunknowncomic Thanks.

Don’t bite the hand that feeds you.

I work at a Catholic school but I’m not Catholic. When I accepted the job I knew it was a Catholic school and I knew I wasn’t Catholic so when prayers are taking place I sit respectfully. I don’t turn my back.

Arron banks Nigel’s lifestyle.

Arron Banks gave Nigel Farage £450 000 to ‘fund his lavish lifestyle’.

a) Is this odd?
b) What does Arron get out of this arrangement?
c) How much would you give me to fund my less than lavish lifestyle?
d) Should I become friends with Arron?
e) Why does Arron spell his name with 2 Rs like no other Aaron?

Anything the Beeb can do…

Great news. 3Prong Attack the #prongcast I co-present have won the rights to the leadership debate – the Lib Dem leadership debate. We haven’t worked out the format yet but we’ve only got one mic & we need to be near a plug socket due to the short battery life of Prong2’s laptop. Still it can’t be any worse than the BBC’s effort.

Never Forget

I’ve heard it said Theresa May’s political career will be defined by Brexit. I sincerely hope not as I wouldn’t want people to forget the Hostile Environment she created at the home office resulting in the ‘Go Home Vans’ and the Windrush cruelty. I wouldn’t want people to forget how she significantly cut police numbers as Home Secretary. I wouldn’t want people to forget her awful 2017 election campaign where not only did she repeat her mantra, ‘Strong & Stable’ to the point of ridicule but had to do the unheard thing of abandoning her manifesto policy (‘dementia tax’) part way through the campaign. And I certainly wouldn’t want people to forget how she treated the Grenfell survivors.

How to counter a powerful narrative.

I watched a Brexit Party video the other day and basically their message is that ‘the people’ (which people) have been betrayed by the political establishment who have stopped Brexit happening. Not only is this seen as a betrayal apparently it’s also undemocratic. As someone who thinks Brexit is more complex than this, I still think the Brexit Party has very a powerful narrative. With this in mind how can other parties counter this narrative?
