    Mrs May has got more trouble on her hands.
    This will be her fault too. Unless you can emote to order in front of TV Cameras you're not fit to be PM, apparently......meanwhile Sadiq has been statesmanlike:

    The Grenfell Tower fire was a "preventable accident" caused by "years of neglect" by the local council and successive governments, Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has said.

    http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-40320459
    You note that Sadiq missed out the fact that as London Mayor, he has been running London for the last year. Its all a bit like the SNP up here at Holyrood, when there is a problem, either blame the local councils or the Westminster Government. I did wonder why no one was asking why the London Mayor or his Office had not stepped up to the plate to show some Leadership considering their vital devolved role in running London.
    What Khan said yesterday was extraordinary..If London had a Tory mayor he would have got slaughtered yet Khan can do nothing to help and just blame the government
    I see the whining whinging Tory SNP hater at it again, look in the mirror , get a heart rather than worshipping at the poor being hammered by you smug Tories as you fill your pockets and whine about the peasants having TV's and smoking.

    Commentator on Marr asking why helicopters were not spraying water over the buildings and rescuing people. Apparently the fire service banned the helicopters due to downdraft problems which seems obvious when you think about
    Flying helicopters at night, in the middle of a city around a tower block on fire?. Sounds fun.
    Even in the middle of the night, an inferno is clearly visible. More visible than during the day.

    I take it you have not seen helicopters dousing fire in LA, for example.
    I think I would believe Twisted Fire Stopper before you.

    Of course, you would. Apart from being a fire-fighter, he is also a Brexiter. It is the second bit which makes him more believeable to you.

    F***s sake they had to send to Surrey for a key bit of equipment as none in London , Surrey the capital of Tower blocks no less, so what chance of them having a helicopter. With this mob I bet we have more fire chiefs than we do fire engines

    As the Scottish polls start to catch up with Corbynmania, I think SCON are now set to come 3rd behind SLAB in the National vote. With the UK polls closing this will present tactical voters with quite a number of dilemmas.

    Is there any reason to suppose that Scottish Labour is doing dramatically better than it was one or two weeks ago, other than one opinion poll?

    Besides anything else, Panelbase have also, apparently, reported this morning (details further down thread) and still have the Tories 10pts ahead of Labour in second.
    The subsamples of the UK polls show a small drift from the SNP to Labour for this election, which is backed up by this Scottish poll. There are more SNP to Labour switchers than SNP to Conservative. Having made their point at the last Westminster election, independence supporting ex Labour voters are more willing to consider returning to Labour for UK-wide reasons. It doesn't necessarily mean they have given up on the SNP however.
    We shall see what happens in the coming election; however, in the longer term I suspect that one of the following three scenarios will play out in Scotland:

    1. Independence
    2. The SNP fails to get independence, but most of the 45% stick with it (or the Greens at Holyrood, which largely amounts to the same thing) indefinitely
    3. Scots genuinely fall out of love with the SNP - and traipse straight back to Labour

    More hard-headed folk in the Conservative Party in England need to start thinking about how to get rid of Scotland as quickly as possible. I'd favour the axing of the Barnett Formula and
    LOL, Little Englander beats the drum. You halfwit you are hanging on like grim death because you are milking us. You sad F***s will soon be left on your jack jones with only yourselves to turn on.
    Go fuck yourself you pathetic little shit.
    Go polish your jackboots saddo
    No, you go and polish yours. Your attitude has always been apparent and it stinks. Nasty, cruel, malignant, pathetic, disgusting, fascistic, petty blood-and-soil nationalist. Sick, depraved fuck. Go fuck yourself.
    Get out of the wrong side of bed saddo and then mummy would not let you have coco pops, poor diddums

    More hard-headed folk in the Conservative Party in England need to start thinking about how to get rid of Scotland as quickly as possible. I'd favour the axing of the Barnett Formula and its replacement with something that's actually fair (which would inevitably take a great chunk of money off the Scots and give it to the Welsh.) If I'm right in my suspicion, which is that most Scots don't give a fuck about the UK and that the No campaign only won in 2014 because of bribery, then that should do the trick.
    .
    Why should it? I can't imagine there'll be *that* much wailing about the fate of the Union in this day and age.

    All of the Barnett money could be spent in those parts of the country (Wales, and much of the North of England) which have not done so well in recent years. Quite a lot of the wavering and ex-Labour voters that the Tories are trying to target in those regions would probably be quite pleased.
    You half witted cretinous moron, there would be no Barnett money as you would not be robbing u sof substantially more. Thick twunt.
