The Sun’s front cover today features Corbyn as a big chicken; in all truth, a bit of a cock.
Yet I think Blair has really helped Magic Gramps by pointing out in advance — before all of yesterday's big noise — just how dumb it would have been to take the bait.
I did enjoy Corbyn's Snow White and the apple analogy. It's a shame none of the tabloids did a mock-up of that.
Once again I think the pre-campaign polls could be deceptive. The Tories will almost inevitably lose seats in Scotland and the south-east and may find it hard to remove Labour MPs in the north with the Brexit bunch breathing down their necks.
And right now Boris’s personal popularity premium — even with his hardcore adulators — must be reaching third season Mourinho levels.
If Labour and the Lid Dems act smartly, I can definitely see the current opposition getting themselves into a position where a coalition might be feasible. This would be a win-win because I cannot see the Lib Dems making the same mistake and not putting some dampeners on their governmental partners this time around.
