      Ok Pollster buddy is annoyed.

      He says you "know nothing about polling methodology, especially when it comes to seat projections".

      He then mentioned something about 'it's not an absolute science but all about signposting trends' which they then feed into some magic formula.
      Apparently.

      More specifically, says back concentrating on dealing with Brexit voters, 15 target seats, all vulnerable to the BP, but unhappy as means is working indirectly for them or Tories.

        I'll quote my man Marco Biagi:

        "no obsessing about c.150 unrepresentative Scottish voters in GB polls.

        no using nationwide polls to pretend to know results in specific constituencies (including maps thereof).

        no manufacturing referendum majorities by ignoring undecided."

        but it if your imaginary friend has a magic formula, all power to him.

          This from the Scots Tory constituency polls done by YouGov is quite something. Ver kids don't seem down with Brand Johnson at all at all.

              That's assuming they turn up to vote.
              Not a given with the millennials et al.

              Here's hoping.

                So much so you ripped off Biagi's pinned tweet.

                ​​​​​​Hmm.

                  Though as a postscript the polling contact claims they've now lost most interest in the Scottish government/constituencies.

                    Wtf are you witlessly havering about Gonzo? I attributed the quote to Biagi, I wasn't claiming him as a mate, any more than typing my man Prof Curtice means I'm hanging about his front room either.

                        'I'll quote my man Marco Biagi'

                        That's fairly clear mate.

                          Yes totally, when lang says "my man", I always imagine it means he has said person chained up in his cellar.

                                  Tom Watson seems intent not just on sabotaging Labour but on sabotaging Remain, by not showing even the most basic understanding of what strategy might be required here.

                                  Poisonous fucker. Gutted he survived a trigger ballot

                                    It is extraordinary that choosing between aiding corbyn & Starmer or Johnson & Farage he seems to choose Johnson

                                        No messing about:

                                        The inner house of the court of session has ruled that the prime minister’s advice to HM the Queen that the United Kingdom parliament should be prorogued from a day between 9 and 12 September until 14 October was unlawful because it had the purpose of stymying parliament.
                                        All three first division judges have decided that the PM’s advice to the HM the Queen is justiciable, that it was motivated by the improper purpose of stymying parliament and that it, and what has followed from it, is unlawful.
                                        The court will accordingly make an order declaring that the prime minister’s advice to HM the Queen and the prorogation which followed thereon was unlawful and is thus null and of no effect.

                                        Strong stuff, though it will go to a play off at the Supreme Court on 17 September. The full judgment comes out on Friday, which we can expect will be even more damning.

                                            So... presumably the Supreme Court would have to frame it's decision on the government's appeal in terms of Scottish Law, not English. Right?
                                            Even so, we should remember that a lower Scottish Court, ruling on the same basis, came to a different answer and therefore be cautious before being too smug (he says after tweeting Mr Green to ask if Johnson is now a traitor).

                                            Comment


                                              Just as an aside, people have noted that Johnson has lost every vote in parliament as Prime Minister. I think we should add the caveat that he is even more of a loser than that. Because he has comfortably 'won' two votes in terms of numbers, the ones on the election. But even when he wins, he loses!

                                              Sorry, not managing the 'don't be smug' thing very well this morning.
