    This is a fantastic idea. I'm not in any way making this political, I just can't say this any other way. I can imagine it happening under one potential future PM but not under another.

    Who's done that?

    Especially with stuff like this. I'm not suggesting the obvious conclusion for a minute, but this really couldn't have come at a better time for the Tories or a worse time for Labour. They had the Tories on the ropes.

    As for how to minimise the chances of these things happening, something this big has to be the work of a larger group. People operating on their own generally need more dense crowds so would need to get past security to inflict the most damage. So you're really just relying on the authorities to stop the more organised groups before they get that far. The security at Disney world and universal in Orlando was very good as it has to be. They have wide open spaces will multiple points of entry to spread people out and then have armed police everywhere leading up to the entrance with multiple checkpoints to get through. I don't think you can stop someone with a bomb killing 20 people. You'd think a group like ISIS would want a higher death toll from a cell operation though. Inhuman, cowardly, scumbags

    Uh? I honestly thought you were from a Scandinavian country. I'm sure you said you knew lots about the political systems there. Slightly creepy you've gone to the trouble of looking up my details. But I've got nothing to hide and I leave it out there, so I can't feel too violated. It seemed that you not knowing how Corbyn vehemently opposed the Iraq war, causing Tony Blair to hate him now and constantly be trying to stick the knife in, was just a gap in knowledge that would be indicative of someone who didn't live in this country and just read facts off the internet.

    I think the Labour manifesto is a fantastically modern, progressive vision for how to recover from the sorry state this country is in. I think Diane Abbott aside, he's got some really impressive front benchers who are just starting to show how good they are. (Barry Gardiner, Jonathan Ashworth, Sarah Champion, Rebecca Long-Bailey) and I think someone like Corbyn actually being a human being unlike May will endear him to the EU negotiators.

    No offence, but are you not from this country? You seem to have some gaping holes in your knowledge of past events.

    She looks ridiculous but he's giving up on everything and not pushing her.

    Normally they get an easy ride. Like Neil is currently letting May get away with a lot on BBC 1. But Kuenssberg was good today.

    Yeah, the raving hippie! Condoning everything the IRA did apart from bombing. Or maybe everyone's taking everything a bit too literally.

    I disagree. I think with Owen Smith or Angela Eagle they'd still be at 25% and nobody would be forcing Theresa May into making mistake after mistake. I think they're peaking just at the right time. Absolutely agree. But doesn't being on the back benches fighting for the underdog who others wouldn't your whole life make you a great choice for PM? I deny it. I'm traditionally Green and I joined the Labour party because Corbyn represents what I want to see in politicians.

    Again, fair play to sky on this. They originally tweeted the video and said wrt to May:

    Ah yes. I agree it would be tough.

    I tend to find most blues fans are pretty right wing actually so I doubt many Labour canvassers will be blues fans. Mine is Wolverhampton..
