When the Lib Dems did better than expected at the local elections people said this shows we want to remain in the EU. Now that The Brexit party are polling well for the European elections people are saying this shows we want to leave the EU. I don’t know if anyone else has noticed this but Brexit is polarising, people either want to leave or they want to remain.

I’ve had to sit and watch the political commentariat put the Lib Dems unexpected good performance in the local elections down to a protest vote, a resurgence, or a response to their remain stance over Brexit. The truth however is that on the last 2 prongcasts I do, we have mocked Sir Vince Cable over his lack of achievements as Lib Dem leader. I can only assume the electorate voted in such large numbers for his party just to spite us.
I do find it somewhat amusing when people say under Jeremy Corbyn there’s now a culture within the Labour party where you can’t criticise the leadership. Since he was elected leader he’s been criticised by his own MPs, former Labour MPs & former Labour PMs. If anything his leadership has inspired way more criticism within his own ranks than less.

If the likes of Dominic Raab, Chris Grayling, Esther McVey or Boris Johnson were black and gained their senior positions within government via a positive action scheme, people would highlight their many deficiencies and say ‘this is what happens when people don’t get their job on merit’. With this in mind, did the above people get their jobs on merit?

I was walking home from the pub when I passed a couple, in so doing I heard the man say to his wife/girlfriend that he could never vote for Jeremy Corbyn because he is an idiot. Fuelled by a pint and a half (and because I’m a fan) I started to sing ‘Oh Jeremy Corbyn…’ only to hear a woman from one of the flats shout “loser” but was she calling me or a Corbyn a loser????

I know the world has moved on from the General Election but I feel everyone needs to read my thoughts, so here goes.
- Firstly, why would you call an election and make it about personality when you don’t have any … erm… personality.
- Hopefully this election has put to bed the idea that Lynton Crosby is some kind of genius. Thankfully the public saw through soundbite politics. It would appear the electorate weren’t prepared to put up with ‘strong and stable’ for 7 weeks.
- Despite their best efforts it would appear the ability of papers like The Sun and The Daily Mail to influence the voters is on the wane.
- The last point may in some ways have something to do with the increase in the youth vote, who don’t get their news from the traditional media.
- And finally it was good to see the experts before the election telling us how it was going to go and then after the election tell us why these things didn’t happen. It’s almost like the political experts don’t really know what the electorate is going to do.

A minority government sounds like it should be really progressive. A government that includes black people, asian people and people from other ethnic groupings, people with disabilities and people who identify as LGBTQI.
Instead it’s what happens when the Conservatives do a bit rubbish at an election.

When I’m not being an unknown comedian, I am an unknown teaching assistant in a school. Recently, the department I work in, SEND (Special Educational Needs & Disability) was externally audited to see if we are value for money.
It’s probably not surprising schools are looking at ways they can make themselves more ‘efficient’ when the government is imposing severe cuts on state schools. (£3bn by 2019-20)
It’s in this climate that I read an article about how more and more schools have started employing a dog as a Learning Support. In addition to this, Cambridge University now use a cat to help their students deal with stress.
When other species can do your job, it really makes you question your career choices. (sad face)

If Evgeny Lebedev had asked me to become the editor of the London Evening Standard, for multiple reasons I’d have to say no. One being, my lack of experience.
What I definitely wouldn’t do is accept the position and continue with my job as a teaching assistant. I’d probably think that due to my lack of experience I’d need to put all my time and effort into the job. George Osborne faced with this situation, feels he can edit the paper alongside being an MP, a consultant for BlackRock and not forgetting his lucrative talks.
Other than time management concerns, it does seem somewhat dubious that a serving MP should be in a position where he has influence over a potential audience of 8m people every evening.
It begs the question, what next? Alastair Darling becoming the controller of Radio 1xtra.
