^lol if accurate.
A lot of people seem to think he speaks sense and like him, so...
...who won't even be in charge post vote, and so can't actually deliver anything they're promising anyway .
I feel it would be insensitive for QT to go ahead tonight.
I feel its insensitive simply for the reason that Sir Geldof the great, savior of literally all the kids - apparently, gets to say anything whatsoever.
Life must go on and the Murder of Jo Cox will be a main part of it I would guess
Extremely useful. Thank you.
I'm voting to remain.
As am I, but I'll answer "leave" if any polling companies happen to start talking to me
I like the cut of your jib.
Closing this thread for 24hrs as a mark of respect at the sad loss of Jo Cox.
Some of the north east FB groups I've been reading appear to be in favour of brexit, very traditional labour heartlands too.
In all honesty I can see remain winning much like the Scottish referendum, time will tell and it will be interesting to see how things pan out either way.
Medicins Sans Frontieres will refuse EU funds over handling of migrant crisis.
Well, these two days haven't gone as anyone expected. Leave momentum stalled by the lack of campaigning due to the tragic loss of Jo Cox. Better update the schedule:
Question Time - Cancelled
Nicky Morgan - Not much good at anything, will do little to sway anyone
Alan Johnson - Will be good for remain, potentially very good
Bob Geldof - Probable disaster for remain
Louise Mench - Probable disaster for leave
Tom Harris - Good for leave
Ruth Lea - Good for leave, but seems to have trouble getting being heard, and will probably be drowned out.
Verdict: No side will win, it will be about who loses more than the other
Andrew Neil Interviews IDS. - Moved.
Verdict: Should be good for leave.
Now will be on BBC Parliament, tomorrow (Saturday)
Cameron on question time
Verdict: Based on his performances so far, this will range from good for leave to pretty much neutral.
Peston on Sunday
George Osborne - Hasn't put up a good show in the referendum so far, will probably get torn to shred over the Brexit budget and the £4300 claim figure
Yvette Cooper - Could be good, but the fact that she refused to believe that the pictures of the 5 EU presidents were real, and not just men off the street as she claimed, will be probably be used against her.
Nigel Farage - Usually good, but could be a liability if he gets the tone wrong in the aftermath of Jo Cox's death, and will probably get attacked harshly with the comparison of UKIPs latest billboard to Nazi propaganda.
Penny Mordaunt - Don't know anything about her
Steve Hilton - Don't know anything about him
Verdict - All up in the air. From what I've seen, preston isn't much of an interviewer either, so it could just be chaos.
Corbyn answers questions from a young audience on Sky
Verdict: This is the big unknown. A good, consistent pro-remain case could turn labour leavers to remain, but Jeremy is pretty inconsistent, and could do more harm than good. -- update: The recent tragedy will be an advantage for Jeremy. He doesn't have to exploit it, but as the Labour leader he will be able to win hearts over with it before going onto his EU arguments.
Wembley Debate - huge live audience
Boris - Good for leave if he puts in a similar performance as he did on Sky
Gisela Stuart - Good for leave
Tim Martin - Good for leave, but not fantastic
Sadiq Khan - Haven't seen much from him yet, will be interesting to watch
Unknown politician - Possible Tim Fallon or Alan Johnson
Unknown business person - Possible Karen Brady
Verdict: Should be evenly matched, possible remain win. Though it is odd that remain haven't finalised their line up yet.
Paxman debate on channel 4 - guests unknown.
Paxman is suspected to lean towards leave, so should be good for them, but with paxman, nothing is for certain.
At least there is no Geldof.
It was poisonous before the murder, but they didn't seem to care so much then.
I don't think anything will change except more security for politicians.
Of course nothings going to change, everything will go to **** regardless. The Referendum is simply a charade to blame the British public for any **** that happens.
EU army not happening eh? Another military chief switches to leave.
Separate names with a comma.
