    I am not hearing mismanaged expectations management from the LDs, I am hearing nothing of any kind at all. Silence. Nada.

    What these comments about bad expectations management don’t appreciate is that, coming from a GE third place and with little presence locally, the LibDems desperately need to manage UP expectations in order to maximise the anti-Tory vote they can gather in. The more people are talking about a likely LibDem win, the better for them. If they fall short, the by-election will quickly be forgotten about anyway.

    I'm still trying to comprehend that astonishing report about the academic spat in New Zealand mentioned in the previous thread. If there are so many allegedly smart people in that country who genuinely can't perceive any qualitative difference between the scientific method and Maori mythology then they're done for. They'll be having Pakistani-style blasphemy lynchings for those who profane the indigenous deities a few years further down the line. Total madness.
  • IanB2IanB2 Posts: 38,321
    Harris: If politics and power were the right way up, those at the top would at least do an impression of being serious and consistent in order to rein in any irresponsible parts of the population. But in England, we seem to have ended up with the exact opposite: a dutiful public boggling at a clique at the top who are, to coin a currently ubiquitous phrase, “taking us for fools”: shallow, reckless, and apparently contemptuous of the sacrifices people are still making.

    For all the hype surrounding levelling up, the absence of any emotional connection with, or serious plans for, the places the government says it wants to help is striking. Once again, the overwhelming impression is of contempt and condescension, and people being blithely offered something Johnson has no serious intention of delivering. Worse still, as proved by the national insurance hike, the end of the universal credit uplift and his regressive plans for funding social care, things that he actually has done will make lives in so-called “left behind” places even harder.

    I recently read Sad Little Men, the writer Richard Beard’s eloquent book about private schools and the kind of leaders they produce. In his experience, contempt for the lower orders began with the idea that “everyone else was less special and often stupid”, and blurred into indifference: “We saw from car windows the petrol stations and primary schools and Bovis homes in which less privileged lives played themselves out, but the hopes and dreams of these people didn’t meaningfully exist for us, nor their disappointments and pain.” The story of a public enduring the worst effects of the pandemic while Downing Street partied on gives those words an awful potency: somewhere in that sentence, in fact, lies one explanation for both the mess this government is in, and the mire the rest of us have been dragged into

    Verstappen just needs to catch, not necessarily to pass.

    Hamilton needs to retain at least a 2-3 second cushion at the chequered flag.

    it was almost possible to stay awake for the whole of that final lap, mind. Why not make the last 4 GPs, say, limited to the top 5 so they are less likely to be traffic management exercises?

  • In terms of expectations management the difficulty for the Lib Dems is that playing down their chances will doom them to defeat. They have to ramp up their chances in order to build the momentum of a campaign and give themselves the best chance of victory.
  • I was supporting Verstappen all race, but that is ridiculous. He was clean beaten for 55/58 laps, Perez helped him out with two.

    My only bet so far was my £100 at evens with @Sandpit on Raducanu. I've just bet £4 @ 50 on Hamilton in case he gets a sympathy vote.

    So I'm now +96 on Raducanu, +100 on Hamilton, -104 on the field.

    This is evidence of how identity politics, intersectionality and what may be described as 'woke' thinking have infiltrated the establishment. And the problem is that there are no signs at all that the establishment will correct itself, even when forced to defend key principles on which modern civilisation has been built, for instance the scientific method. It is yet another example of how the west is committing suicide. When you discard your reflexive progressive assumptions and faith in the estalishment; and really see what is happening, the inescapable conclusion is that it all simply has to be stopped before we descend in to the type of problems you describe. We are fast approaching the point where it is politically impossible for the status quo to change course, because even if they can see the madness their supporters do not; so your only option is to vote for a Zemmour or a Trump.
