I predicts 8 seats for DUP based on leading indicators and the new demographics in NI.
And the working class has disappeared up North (BTW BJ needs a new compass) a long time ago. Corbyn was frozen in time.

I’ve never seen so many white people complaining about racism.

How do you define white people? For me white color is RGB (255, 255, 255) but the color I see is mostly RGB (247, 223, 209)

I don’t. You need to direct that question at Jon Snow, the left-wing Channel 4 news presenter, whose comment I have adjusted. He used it against Brexit Party supporters. In my experience Brexit supporters are far more diverse than fascists. Sorry, I mean anti fascists.

The perception gap on English racism is almost as wide as it is on the Brexit topic. BJ's period of healing may, optimistically, begin in England two generations from now. In other parts of the U(?)K, hard to tell.

It shouldn’t be. Racism is here and now. Brexit is an unknown.

At which end of the perception gap would you put the Labour Party conference having a meeting to debate whether the Holocaust actually happened?

Where did it all go wrong for Labour? Their message to their traditional voters was so right on.

I'm perfectly happy to believe that a significant fraction of Labour voters are anti-Semitic. I equally well believe that a majority of BJ/Farage/leaver/Bannon voters hate anybody not looking, tasting and smelling like themselves. So, is that a tie? Maybe the next couple of decades of attempted Brexiting will tell...

Well, you’re wrong! But because I’m a Conservative I’m perfectly happy for you to have a different opinion. I just don’t care what it is!

The Tory candidate in my constituency was a black woman.

I think racism is the left's last stand. It's trivial to twist people's words out of context. It's impossible to disprove, other than by boring statistics. In the UK we know who the racists are. Corbyn, Livingstone, Loach, etc. have made that clear to all. 

Maybe it's different in the US.
