The above YouGov polling came out last week but got overshadowed by the budget and I think they should be highlighted.

    Indeed.

    I do think Sunak's numbers are going to take a hit following the 1% pay increase for nurses.

    Those figures for Starmer should have alarm bells ringing

    Mr. Eagles, I agree, and suggested a couple of days ago that the 1% rise might be an attempt by the PM to take the shine off his Chancellor.

    It is the incompetence numbers that really stand out.

    We're eventually going to find out it's some distant elderly cousin who's not technically a Royal, aren't we?
    Occam`s Razor: I`d go 75% they are lying, 15% H&M imagined something trivial they took offense over, 10% something racist was actually said.
    How is that an application of Occam's Razor?

    But it makes the PM look bad as well, so I rule out the PM for the leak.

    What I really want to see is the likes/dislikes the party but like/dislikes the leader polling.

    Back in 2013-13-15 that was a great indicator that Dave was doing better than the polling suggested.

    Happy 'being allowed to leave your house for recreation' day everyone

    I assume the govt are now fully aware that they're massively behind the majority of the public now, in attitudes to lockdown. My only rationalisation of this is that 'holding the line' on being slow will appease the Nick P's of this world...

    Whilst many say they support the caution, the streets are really busy again, the roads back to normal levels, and the vaccinated are popping in to see one another. It was so nice to see multi generational families at the seaside over the weekend. The law went far too far on restricting social contact; I trust that we learn from this and never do it again.
    I think there's now a fair to middling chance that the roadmap will be liberalised, to some extent. There are some glaring anomalies with it already – the massive England vs Scotland football match at Wembley in Euro 2021 and Royal Ascot are scheduled less than a week before the restrictions are supposed to end! That cannot hold, and I expect a fudge at the very least whereby the government calls them 'test events' and thus allows full crowds.

    The bigger question is what happens outside the sporting/music arena? I mean, deaths are likely to fall to averaging double figures this week or next. Are we really going to maintain the rules through Easter and April if the numbers are barely troubling the scorers?
    For the first time I am now officially a lockdown sceptic. Id be happy to accept limiting social life to the rule of six outdoors for another month or two, but stay at home orders and only meeting one other person are excessive in the current climate. They are not being followed or enforced anyway.
    The trouble is, while-ever the rules are there, they are cause for the judgemental, authoritarian curtain-twitching we see on here daily. Look at the likes of Sandy Rentool – he spends most of his pixel allowance on PB calling those who dare to sidestep or bend a single rule "dickheads" and advocating punishments that wouldn't look out of place in totalitarian regimes.

    It is better that rules, and laws, fit the reality, rather people just saying "oh it doesn't matter because they aren't really enforced".
    Absolutely. Laws should be widely understood, accepted and enforced, bad ones that arent should be removed or changed. The continuous spew of new laws that are infrequently and incoherently enforced brings the law and govt into disrepute. This was a problem well before covid, but obviously covid has made the problem bigger.
    Great post. People cannot be expected to follow the rule of law if they cannot reasonably be expected to easily figure out what the law is.

    Tom Bingham put it as 'The law must be accessible and so far as possible intelligible, clear and predictable'.

    Constant confusion of laws on laws can make it hard.

    Some very odd results there, because much as I love Italy, there's no way, even in my very recent experince, that it's more inclined to supporting gender equality than Britain. I think that's why some of these results may be as much about which issues people are most aware of, and regard as needing addressing in their societies, as the current situation. Britain may be moving from a nation doing OK on this, to a nation inclined to doing even more.

    Rishi just sounds competent.

    The big political advantage Dishy Rishi has is he speaks human. Boris speaks scatterbrain rambling posho (the sort of person you don't trust with the microwave as they probably put a spoon in it) and Starmer speaks technocrat (whose answer to everything is more rules).
    That does explain my affinity for Keir.

    Yes, it’s quite odd. It is possible to believe - if one cares either way - that MM had a tough time with the Royal F (everyone does, if The Crown is accurate) but that she is ALSO quite cunning, maybe even manipulative, and uses her beauty and gender effectively. She’s quite a successful Hollywood actress, it’s what they do

    So it’s possible she blind-sided Harry with this. Or she said it in a way he did not quite expect. Cf her exaggeration about the ‘several’ incidents, whereas, in truth, just once
  • algarkirkalgarkirk Posts: 3,094

    It is indeed very worrying for the Tories that their current leader is spanking Starmer's Labour Party by a double-digit margin and that they also have a very popular and respected second-in-command stewarding the economy while waiting in the wings.

    What a terrible problem to have... :smile:

    Agree. Not only Rishi but Hunt, Raab, Liz Truss would have a decent chance against SKS; and I doubt if there are four or five Labour MPs who could beat any of them as things stand, if Eagle, Cooper and Benn are regarded as out of the game (pity).

    Time to bring on Ed Balls?

    I'm always a little sceptical about the international attitude comparison polls (gratifying though it is for the UK to be at the right end of this one) as you are never entirely sure whether questions are systematically interpreted differently in different places.

    For example, countries at the top end of happiness polls often have rather high suicide rates. Are we sure we aren't just capturing countries where it is particularly hard to admit to not being happy?

    Similarly, I'd be interested to see how far attitudes in vaccine reluctance polls are reflected in actual refusal rates in due course. I'd expect there to be some degree of association, but maybe not all that strong.

    Yes, but worrying for Boris, rather than the Tories becuase there's at least three candidates jockeying for position that will have much higher ratings on competence, Rishi is just one of those.

However she should watch out, Meghan will likely now have an eye on her next career move, given Harry is now of less use to her give it a few years and she might be looking to get out of that relationship too and do a Jackie Onassis and marry a billionaire and take an even further step up

    He sounds competent but a bit lightweight. Recently he’s been trying the politicians trick of keeping on talking when the interviewer tries to interject with another question, but it isn’t working, and makes him sound weak.

    BP has told office-based staff they will be expected to spend two days a week working from home after lockdown restrictions ease.

    The oil giant said in meetings last month that most would be asked to work from home 40% of the time, or two days a week for full-time employees.

    The new "hybrid" work model will affect 25,000 BP staff, with 6,000 in the UK.

    Is this obligatory? If so this is really tough on younger workers who may not have space at home, and who like being in an office (they do exist, I’ve met some). It means MOST of the week - four days - will be spent at home.

    We are rushing through a social revolution without much thought

    Well quite - the contortions to which they go to find the negative and ignore the positive is highly amusing.
    You mean like yesterday pointing out that the polling means that the Tories could win a seat from Labour this year in a by election which could hasten the departure of Starmer?

    Yes, it’s quite odd. It is possible to believe - if one cares either way - that MM had a tough time with the Royal F (everyone does, if The Crown is accurate) but that she is ALSO quite cunning, maybe even manipulative, and uses her beauty and gender effectively. She’s quite a successful Hollywood actress, it’s what they do

    So it’s possible she blind-sided Harry with this. Or she said it in a way he did not quite expect. Cf her exaggeration about the ‘several’ incidents, whereas, in truth, just once
    Meghan married into the royal family as a great move to go from C list actress to permanent A lister. She could not give a toss about the royal family as an institution and as soon as she could she got out.

    Harry still though obviously retains familial ties to the royals and is now having to row back to minimise the damage. However she should watch out, Meghan will likely now have an eye on her next career move, given Harry is now of less use to her give it a few years and she might be looking to get out of that relationship too and do a Jackie Onassis and marry a billionaire and take an even further step up
    A run-of-the-mill billionaire is a “step up” from a prince of the royal family? Call yourself a monarchist? Pah!

    You don't think that would troll Starmer more, seeing as he would finish in a humiliating third place? Assuming he didn't lose to 'Don't Know' and come 4th, of course :lol:

    The future is here....

    BP has told office-based staff they will be expected to spend two days a week working from home after lockdown restrictions ease.

    The oil giant said in meetings last month that most would be asked to work from home 40% of the time, or two days a week for full-time employees.

    The new "hybrid" work model will affect 25,000 BP staff, with 6,000 in the UK.

    https://www.bbc.com/news/business-56319623



    Is this obligatory? If so this is really tough on younger workers who may not have space at home, and who like being in an office (they do exist, I’ve met some). It means MOST of the week - four days - will be spent at home.

    We are rushing through a social revolution without much thought
    Also not good for innovation-based work. There the model is to create a workplace - with common kitchens, eating and play areas (e.g. big-arse TV/gaming screens) - where the kids do not want to do home, but spend more time together in a low stress setting, letting ideas percolate in informal ways. I have seen this very intentionally designed at a couple of computational biology and synthetic biology 'offices'.

    If there’s a victim in all this, it’s Harry. Lost his mother as a kid in the most brutal, public way. Now he’s lost, in effect, his father and brother as well, and has no obvious future role, once this particular psychodrama has played out.

    For all the money and privilege, it is not an enviable place to be
    As soon as William started to have kids, his days as someone anyone cared about were numbered regardless. After that his options were whether he wanted to be Price Edward, or Prince Andrew.

    He won't, only one poll has shown a swing to the Tories, all the others still showing a swing to Labour since 2019.

    Plus Labour have no one better to replace him with anyway, apart from maybe Burnham who is not even an MP

    This is precisely the point I put to the biosecurity group I am part of. The response I got from the virus evolutionary mappers is that the RBD is both highly constrained and highly conserved with just a very limited set of theoretical vaccine escape possibilities. But the history of SARS implies that this is highly unlikely - at least in relation to the T-cell immunity.
    I guess in layman's terms there are only a certain number of ways any organism can mutate or evolve before it becomes a different organism entirely.
    Even more specifically, there are only so many configurations of proteins in 3-D space that align electrical charges to create the binding. Change too many amino acids in the protein, you change the 3-D structure of the protein such that it can no longer bind. Thus changes that help a virus evade the immune response are also quite likely to reduce its ability to bind and hence infect.

    This will pile a lot of pressure on marriages and families. It is being done heedlessly, and for profit.

    I watched the full thing. They claimed it was basically the whole family, except the Queen. The "firm" stopped their money, upon which they wouldn't return his calls.

    He has now spoken to his father more recently, but described his relationship as "space", he doesn't speak to his brother / his wife, and most recently the family wouldn't talk to them about Prince Philip when they tried to ask.

    The only royal he named as having semi-regular contact with only the past year is the Grannie.

    Yes, it’s quite odd. It is possible to believe - if one cares either way - that MM had a tough time with the Royal F (everyone does, if The Crown is accurate) but that she is ALSO quite cunning, maybe even manipulative, and uses her beauty and gender effectively. She’s quite a successful Hollywood actress, it’s what they do

    So it’s possible she blind-sided Harry with this. Or she said it in a way he did not quite expect. Cf her exaggeration about the ‘several’ incidents, whereas, in truth, just once
    Meghan married into the royal family as a great move to go from C list actress to permanent A lister. She could not give a toss about the royal family as an institution and as soon as she could she got out.

    Harry still though obviously retains familial ties to the royals and is now having to row back to minimise the damage. However she should watch out, Meghan will likely now have an eye on her next career move, given Harry is now of less use to her give it a few years and she might be looking to get out of that relationship too and do a Jackie Onassis and marry a billionaire and take an even further step up
    A run-of-the-mill billionaire is a “step up” from a prince of the royal family? Call yourself a monarchist? Pah!
    Many billionaires are little better than merchants, they used to below peasants!
    There weren't billionaires in the middle ages except with inflation in today's terms.

    Though even then merchants and farmers were still above peasants just below knights
    Not everywhere they weren't. I was thinking of social classes in Japan (as I recently watched a video about the end of the Sengoku Jidai

    But thank you for telling me there werent billionaires, which I never said there were.

    The future is here....

    BP has told office-based staff they will be expected to spend two days a week working from home after lockdown restrictions ease.

    The oil giant said in meetings last month that most would be asked to work from home 40% of the time, or two days a week for full-time employees.

    The new "hybrid" work model will affect 25,000 BP staff, with 6,000 in the UK.

    Is this obligatory? If so this is really tough on younger workers who may not have space at home, and who like being in an office (they do exist, I’ve met some). It means MOST of the week - four days - will be spent at home.

    We are rushing through a social revolution without much thought
    Also not good for innovation-based work. There the model is to create a workplace - with common kitchens, eating and play areas (e.g. big-arse TV/gaming screens) - where the kids do not want to do home, but spend more time together in a low stress setting, letting ideas percolate in informal ways. I have seen this very intentionally designed at a couple of computational biology and synthetic biology 'offices'.
    Also very hard on fathers of newborns (if it is compulsory). Few people enjoy being trapped indoors 24/7 with a screaming ten month old baby. Yes this is already hard on the mothers, but they have to do the chestfeeding so it makes sense.

    This will pile a lot of pressure on marriages and families. It is being done heedlessly, and for profit.
    Mothers of newborns even more so!

    On international Woman's day, it is worth noting how working mothers have been doing most of the home education as well as childcare, and still having to appear bright on Zoom.
