It's not a Tory leaflet, and was distributed by racists in a local election in Clapham in 1970:

Feels weird bringing it up in 2016, no matter who you support.

The one Spenno posted at the top of the page is from 1929. I thought it was just a thing we were doing.


But that's a logical and reasonable poster, made by the actual party. Not some racist made propaganda from a local election 47 years ago.

Alright. We're just posting here.

Looks like a hung parliament. Conservatives biggest party, but smaller than Labour, Lib Dems and SNP together.

You are right. However, she will have lead the Tories in her first election as leader and PM, and they have become the biggest party. She will have changed things up a bit in her party, and she has destroyed UKIP. But of course, if this is the result, she will not be happy about it.

Generally speaking, what's the difference between Labour, Lib Dems and SNP?

As someone who's fairly uneducated in the details of the politics of the UK, is this primarily Brexit blowback?

Is this thread title a joke setup, and on what page can I find the punchline?

Labour are socialist/social democrats. Quite a bit further left under Corbyn, than under Blair. They want a hard brexit, same as the Tories.

The Lib Dems are a social liberal party, centre left on a European political scale, with a focus on liberal ideas and policies. Not left wing liberal in the traditional US way of thinking. They are pro-EU.

The SNP is first and foremost a Scottish party. Their most important case is Scottish independence, and Scotland staying in the EU. They are mostly seen as a social democratic party.

With it all still up in the air Betfair has now put Corbyn as favourite to get the PM job.

Smashed indeed.
