Theresa May’s woeful start to her General Election campaign – which has seen Labour gainthirteen percentage points in voting intention polls – looks set to become a full-blown disaster.

Reports are beginning to emerge from multiple sources suggesting that Mrs May is under investigation by the Property and Ethics group of the Cabinet Office in connection with an alleged failure to declare an enormous conflict of interest on Brexit related to profits of billions of pounds said to have been made by her husband’s investment-banking company in Brexit-related activities, as these tweets by political commentators suggest:

As the SKWAWKBOX covered on Thursday, a singleweek of General Election campaigning – with Corbyn taking the streets by storm and Theresa May hiding in empty factories or speaking to a handful of acolytes in strictly stage-managed settings – saw the Tories’ polling lead over Labour fall by a huge eight points.

Today a new poll, announced just minutes ago by Britain Elects, shows a further fall – from 16 percentage points to 11 – in just two days:

voting intention 290417.pngClearly the voting public is starting to recognise in Corbyn an authentic Prime Minister in waiting when they see one – and to see through Theresa May’s media-spun ’emperor’s new clothes’ to the unfit, unelected has-been behind the spin.

It seems all the momentum is Corbyn’s and Labour’s.

The battle is just beginning, but it’s becoming clearer every day just why Theresa May’s keepers are keeping her out…

Ramblings of an Ordinary Man

With every line on his face carved by a 34 year struggle for fairness and social justice, Jeremy Corbyn today delivered a speech that many feel transformed him from party leader to Prime Minister in-waiting. It was a masterful portrait of a Tory Britain that, as he passionately declared, is holding back the potential of the British people.

Few could argue he hadn’t captured the essence of a Conservative government that rules in the interests of the privileged. They are happy to carve out a Brexit for the few, to surrender our public services, he said, because they have a “get out of jail free card.”

Theresa May can slash and burn schools and hospitals, feed the greed of the super rich and watch as our infrastructure crumbles, because the people she serves will never pay the price. That is left to the rest of us.

To loud applause he…

One effect of Theresa May’s decision to call a June election has been the suspension of normal CLP (constituency Labour party) meetings – although campaign-planning meetings are still being held. This has had a major effect on the scheduling of delegate selections for Labour’s 2017 annual Conference in Brighton.

Many CLPs had been planning to hold their selections in their April or May meetings, but this cannot now take place. As a result, the SKWAWKBOX understands that Labour’s HQ has extended the deadline for applications to early July – the 8th seems to be the likely date.

Most CLPs will therefore have only a single monthly meeting to finalise their delegates between the result of the General Election and the deadline.

The Labour right has already been organising and will be hoping to take most left-wing members by surprise in order to monopolise the selections. Many right-wingers have not let…
