    Thanks, Paul, it’s good to have a firm by-election date at last, donation to follow shortly.
    Some of you may remember the influential music series on the BBC in the 1970’s called The Old Grey Whistle Test – is Paul the Whispering Bob Harris of the Lib Dems?

  • Isn’t there a side strategy that George Street HQ could be pursuing in relation to this by election? Namely inducing 2 current Conservative MPs to leave the Conservative Party (either joining the Liberal Democrats or probably more likely sitting as Independent/Pro-European Conservatives). This way if Brecon and Radnor can be won by the Liberal Democrats on the 1st of August, then it actually leads to the collapse of the Westminster government.

    There must be at least 2 hard Europhile Conservative MPs who are either certainly facing deselection (such as Dominic Grieve) or are looking to retire anyway (such as Ken Clarke) who could be induced to strategically leave the Conservatives “for the good of the country” knowing it could be the best way to stop Brexit (the current Parliament just isn’t going to offer a vote on the Brexit Deal, but a new parliament might)

    Theres an interesting new Poll from the firm who did best in predicting the European Elections, the big change is a collapse in the Brexit Party vote, down to 12%. Its hard not to see that as a direct result of the Tory leadership campaign – a solid fortnight of Tories competing to be the most Brexity & very little Farage on the telly.
    However accurate this is it does suggest the fragility of the Brexit vote.
    Could the Tory HQ have seen private Polling also suggesting a Brexit collapse, that might explain their sudden decision to call the By-election after all.

  • @James Pugh

    While 2 Tory MPs reduce the Tories (& Dup) to under half the voting MPs if we win b&r, the difficulty is lining up *all* the others on the other side. Many such as Change UK and Indies wouldn’t want a general election and many others are not fans of Corbyn.

    @Paul Barker.

    It has to be said the BXP rating by Mori has to be taken with a great deal of caution as it is way out of line with the others. Yougov today for example gives them 22%. It may of course be right but at best one can only say at the moment is that BXP are down a few points and the Tories up a few points which is of course to be expected with the Tory leadership contest etc

    There is a potential warning for us in b&r in that of course it is more of a threat if either BXP or the Tories unite the leaver vote than if They are very evenly split.
