Leadbetter saved by FPP system.

Her 35% doesn't look good compared with over 55% for Conservatives+Galloway.

Media still a huge part of culture wars. Keeps getting the Tories in.
But the Metro assures us the PM Johnson demands urgent action by social media firms against racist trolls, said with a sincere watermelon frown.

Lovely guy, a credit to England.

Interestingly he said that the Brexit yes side does not know if Brexit will be good or bad,
Allso he claims that it was not him who had influence on BJ appointments as suggested at the time but BJ girlfiend at the time
