Just when I was thinking there couldn't be a Labour shadow minister who was more stupid that Abbot, Thornberry declares that we wouldn't be able to export food to Australia because it would go off by the time it gets there. Obviously she hasn't heard of refrigerated and frozen container ships, or possibly even home fridges and freezers.  noooo:

 lol:

It's not like we'll have any spare food to export though is it.  We've been big food importers for over 100 years and a hard Brexit will reduce supply from Europe.
Well, whatever nevermind

We've seen, both in the referendum and the previous general election just how 'inaccurate' these polls can be. The simple truth is that the majority of opinion polls are worthless now because of the way that they are put together. If you want a poll of say 1000 people you aim for 200 off the street and the rest done by phone which means you can contact the data supply companies and ask for specifically profiled data sets. Hell give me a grand and access to a call centre for a couple of days and I can give you an opinion poll set that predicts the Monster Raving Loony Party will win every seat. These polls are no longer objective and unbiased but have degenerated to propaganda tools.  noooo:

Some days I think the only thing keeping me from becoming homicidal is that the voices can't agree on which weapon would be the most fun.

The polls might be correct, the Labour Manifesto reads like a Santa Claus wish list and could sway a lot of voters. Hell, I'll vote for all the goodies myself if I didn't believe it would bankrupt this country.
