Well, poor Theresa has the unfortunate knack of wearing good clothes very badly. I saw a shot of her canvassing and she looked positively menacing. I suppose she could have been wearing body armour, but the overall effect was neither friendly nor welcoming.

As far as Corbyn is concerned he was quite tidy when I saw him. He was wearing a suit, no tie, but that is common these days. I suspect you have bought the failed propaganda that attempted to turn him into another Michael Foot. That failed. They are obviously very different animals. If you want to vote for someone dressed like a used car salesman (Cameron's style) then go ahead. It is singularly unappealing to me. I'd rather have someone who dresses like an ordinary person.

I'd say the opposite, the proposals are diametrically opposite to the Tory party's actions and would improve the lives of the majority of the population as opposed to increasing the wallets of a few.

The country is getting richer and the majority of the population are getting poorer. Distribution of wealth is one of the main functions of Government, it is tied in to all the other functions (peace, health, development and education).

if the picture posted is anything to go by, 2000 is pretty accurate.

36,000 people would be of football stadium proportions.

36000!! ..propaganda! There were just under 19,000 at Wembley for Tranmere v Forest Green..you couldn't fit that many on the lake car park.
The farmers market was on in West Kirby on Saturday so that probably took the other 34000 you counted through. wink

10/10 for trying..\

Mays not been in the job long enough to get slagged off so any rubbishing should be of the conservative party not May personally.

whats the slogan Theresa May---Corbyn Will

Car park is 100m X 25m = 2500m2, but its not full of people so call it about 1800m2

Normal close knit crowds are about 3.5 people per m2 but the further from the stage the less dense it is and around the stage it may be higher density than 3.5 so calling it on average about 3 people per m2.

Ends up with an estimate of 5400 people which is roughly the momentum estimate of 5000.
