Trackstar, thanks for the introduction to Badiou!
I cringe at calling popstars like Zizek philosophers, and Badiou is often mentioned next to him by Twitter intellectualists - hence my reservations.
The set theory Cantor? What has he done to philosophers?? ;-)
Actually Badiou and Zizek have edited a couple of books together, but that's ok by me.

Extended Cantor response moved to OT.

Corbyn's not playing to win the GE anymore, just to keep control of Labour.

The War of the Luvvies has started. Two open letters, from those for and against anti-semitism. Sorry, I mean Corbyn.

Several new polls out. Con lead solidifying, for now.

90% chance C majority. With 363 seats. Labour on 210 seats.

Compared with this time in 2017, there is currently now much, much less volatility in polling numbers for Labour and Lib Dem.

Can you post links? It's hard to find those polls, and I'm interested in those which predict the # of seats (most don't).

My prediction for seats.

You are invoking Godwin's Law. Never a good sign. Looks as if you are getting a bit jittery?

You and Martin Baxter are in an excellent agreement: https://www.electoralcalculus.co.uk/homepage.html

Great minds think alike!

I did better than him in 2015. We both did badly in 2017. We have been comparing notes. He’s made his methodology more complicated. And I have simplified mine!

Labour abandons core conference promise on Climate Crisis: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/p ... 06781.html


Just shows how climate action is neither a left- nor right-wing issue. Both sides are pandering to special interest groups which are uncomfortable with making an effort to contain the Climate Crisis.
