They have spent their lives attacking the people who risk their lives trying to protect us from evil and dangerous people. And they lie as they try to cover their tracks.
Nick Hargrave: Meet Megan and David – who, with others like them, may determine this election result
If on election day they think the result is a foregone conclusion, then they are more likely to use their vote in different ways.
Plus: A YouGov poll brings back unhappy memories. Elections past bring back happier ones.
Their MRP projection has the Scottish Nationalists picking up several seats, often by narrow margins, which would surprise those on the ground.
Daniel Hannan: £1 million? £1 billion? £1 trillion? McDonnell is relying on you not knowing the difference.
Labour is banking on our innumeracy. I don’t say that they are taking us for fools. Plenty of clever and educated people can’t process numbers on that scale.
Who will their taxes really hit? How much will they truly raise? And can this really be described as a ‘moderate’ agenda?
For both Brexiteers and the EU, Brexit is a constitutional issue, from which economic consequences flow, rather than the other way around.

Garvan Walshe: You can’t eat the hashd al-sha’bi or fill up your car with Hezbollah. Iran’s theocrats hunker down as protests mount.

Andy Street: Our holistic approach to public health in the West Midlands ensures spending is effective
We are encouraging people to do more exercise. We are investing millions in schemes to boost cycling and walking, which helps improve air quality in built-up areas.
Neil O’Brien: There are still weeks to go, but for backbenchers like me, campaign 2019 feels much, much better than 2017
The campaign feels better run, including online. People massively prefer Boris Johnson to Corbyn. The question is whether it is enough
Nick Hargrave: Wanted. A Too Difficult Department to help tackle intractable post-election problems.
I am arguing that there is some limited space for radical candour with the electorate on the difficult choices facing the country in the 2020s.
Plus: The ups and downs of Johnson’s broadcast. Poor A & figures. Conservative and Labour no shows. And: what to give a woman at Christmas.
