    If the story didn't say the stone had already been commissioned, I'd just assume he would break his promise to have it made :eyes:

    It's a shame they couldn't have teamed up with the SNP and negotiated a discount on a second stone saying "No second referendum for a generation".

    I really don't like the way the numbers are centred next to the text. They should be aligned to the first line of text.

    What a shower of shit idea.

    Incidentally this topic is twice as popular as the 2010 pre-General Election topic, despite being FAR LESS INTERESTING OVERALL (imo).

    This may be a bit of a SHEFFIELD RALLY MOMENT, especially so close to the event.

    At least we have a MOMENT at LAST.

    Twitter is going all biblical meme on Millipede.

    An open goal. I never really watched The Thick Of It, but I can imagine Siobhan Sharpe leading on this.

    Labour doing better in the polls over the last few days - ahead on 6 of the last 8 (one tie, one Conservative)

    Delia is the latest celebrity to come out for Labour. If Harriet recreated the Man City half time pep talk in a PPB I'd consider voting Labour again.

    The Lib Dems have Hugh Grant and John Cleese but I can't think of anyone of note who's supporting the Tories. Tax dodger Barlow must have been asked to steer clear and Barbara Knox's drink driving conviction means she's persona non grata.

    Did Labour really hold a gender segregated meeting in Birmingham? I'm hesitant to mention it as it only seems to be the right-wing press going on about it, and it plays into their hands, but it still looks bad to me.

    It wasn't fully segregated, the Labour panellist had a woman sat between two men, it was just the 100s in the audience who were strictly divided by gender.

    Unfortunately the left wing/moderate(?) press are unlikely to touch this with a barge pole.

    WHY? Was it a meeting of people from Downton Abbey or strict Muslims?

    Although a Downton Abbey/ Labour Party crossover seems unlikely.

    I hope the Labour MPs attending were presented with a fait accompli rather than being happy about it. I bet Liam Byrne couldn't give a shit.

    I'd like to think there was a separate meeting for the women where Karen was showing them how to enhance their cleavage for selfies.

    To use the :disco: smiley with such wild abandon is to negate it's true meaning.

    Lovely drive through the Cotswolds today. Conservative billboards and posters everywhere. A handful of Lib Dem ones, and a couple of UKIP. Labour and Green nowhere to be seen.

    Not at all surprising of course, but still something of a shock after what I've been used to all over the city here.

    I'm quite pleased it's been demonstrated that Russell's ideology on non-voting was so wafer thin that fifteen minutes with ED FUCKING MILIBAND was enough to dissolve it :D

    Only on the condition he's #1.

    Though I'd hazard a guess that Sharla may be a fan.

    If people are voting the Lib Dems to stop the Tories, may I just remind them that the last 5 years has been a Tory-Lib Dem COALITION government. So it's utterly pointless to vote for them if you don't like what the government has done in that time. As far as I'm concerned it's made practically no difference to what would have happened anyway under a Tory government.

    I'm not sure if that is the case - but then I don't understand why the Lib Dems aren't screaming out what things they have prevented happening if you are indeed right. Or perhaps they are, and I'm not particularly listening.
