Will Amey Trees Rampage Cost Paul Blomfield Sheffield Central Labour Seat, Green Win? / ElectionOracle / UK General Election

By: N_Walayat

The Green Party are fielding their party leader Natalie Bennett in the Sheffield Central constituency hoping to unseat Paul Blomfield from what has been a rock solid Labour seat since 1945, to whom the Labour baton was passed in 2010 from Richard Caborn. The Green party are eager to capitalise on local issues such as the felling of thousands of Sheffied's big and beautiful trees by the Spanish Ferrovial Family owned Amey as part of a £2 billion PFI outsourcing contract by Labour Sheffield City Council that has angered and outraged many tens of thousands of Sheffielders, prompting dozens of campaign groups to spring up that will likely play a major role in the oucome of the next 2018 local elections.

Nick Clegg's Desperate Election 2017 Message to Sheffield Hallam Voters / ElectionOracle / Sheffield

By: N_Walayat

Nick Clegg attempting to cling on to to his Sheffield Hallam seat has sent a desperate personal message to many Sheffield Hallam voters, highlighting all of the campaigning he has done in the area in respect of local schools and Sheffield Trees being chopped down. Though given what has subsequent come to pass then the campaigning has proved to be mostly ineffectual. Anyway here is Nick Clegg's message to the voters of Sheffield Hallam, a tight election race which Nick Clegg barely leads Labour by 4%.

Sheffield Election 2017 Battles - Hallam Clegg, Blomfield Central, Trees and Greens / ElectionOracle / Sheffield

By: N_Walayat

The unfolding Sheffield election battles are centered around whether the current 4 or 5 Labour MP's (is Penistone a Sheffield constituency?) or the former Lib Dem Leader retain their seats. So could Labour being 10% or so behind the Tories result in the feared landslide election victory for Theresa May in the BrExit election include Labour losing a seat? For the Sheffield City council's £2 billion deal with Ferrovial family owned Amey could be the straw that breaks the voting camels back delivering Sheffield Labour a SHOCK election RESULT!

By: Nadeem_Walayat

With the opinion polls all over the as illustrated by the pollster based Conservative Party seats forecasts wide range from 305 to 385. Where it would be great if one could bet against the pollsters! i.e. ring up YouGov and go LONG on their forecast of Conservative 305 seats and SHORT of their Labour 267 seats. Of course they would never do that, as they clearly don't put their money where their mouths are, instead without consequence continue to pump out headline grabbing seats forecasts as demanded by the mainstream media to sell copy.

Can Labour Win Nick Clegg's Sheffield Hallam Seat in Election 2017? / ElectionOracle / Sheffield

By: N_Walayat

In the 2015 General Election former Lib Dem Leader Nick Clegg put up a valiant battle in the face of a national Liberal Democrat wipeout. For in 2015 the opinion pollsters consistently had Labour winning the Sheffield Hallam Lib-Dem seat. Instead Nick Clegg managed to cling on in the wake of a Lib Dem bloodbath, however he did fall by a whopping 13% tumbling from 53.4% to 40% of the voter. Whilst Labour doubled their share from 16.1% to 35.8%, just 4.2% behind Nick Clegg. Whilst the Tories on just 13.6% clearly don't stand any chance of winning Sheffield Hallam in this election at least.

UK General Election 2017 Seats Final Forecast, Labour, Conservative Lib-Dem, SNP / ElectionOracle / UK General Election

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Here is my final UK election forecast conclusion on the basis of the sum of my analysis of the past 6 weeks in the run up to Theresa May's BrExit snap general election. Usually I would have aimed to have posted my final forecast conclusion at least a month before the day of the election i.e. for the US Presidential election my forecast conclusion was some 7 weeks before voting day. But that was just not possible this time as Theresa May seeing the Tories well ahead in the polls Mid April decided to ride the BrExit wave into a landslide general election victory. But that was about 6 weeks ago, now the likes of YouGov are forecasting a hung parliament resulting in a probable Labour / SNP coalition alliance.

UK House Prices Forecast General Election 2017 Seats Result, for 2015 was 328 / ElectionOracle / UK General Election

By: Nadeem_Walayat

In 2015 the polling establishment and the mainstream media had in unison proclaimed that the 2015 general election was too close to call, one where the Labour and Conservative parties were neck and neck and where even if the Conservatives managed to pull a handful of seats ahead would still lose by default as they would not be able to form a majority even with Lib Dem support and therefore the Labour party appeared destined to win the 2015 general election, all of which was based on a year of opinion polls that consistently presented this consensus view right up until the polls closed!

London Bridge Terror Attack 5 Seats Election Boost for Conservative Party / ElectionOracle / UK General Election

By: Nadeem_Walayat

London has just been hit by another barbaric terror attack that was not even 10 days on from the horrific Manchester bombing that killed many children. The latest attack is just 5 days away from the General Election. Whilst information is very sketchy at this time barely an hour on form the London Met Police declared 2 terror related incidents at London Bridge and Borough Market. Nevertheless armed police have opened fire on at least 3 suspects, of which at least 2 are dead and 1 is being hunted. The police also announced that there are civilian causalities, though the scale of causalities is unknown at this time which hopefully will not be on the scale of Manchester.

Normally one would imagine that the betting markets should usually be the most accurate predictor in terms of the probable outcomes of events such as elections given that there is nothing that focuses ones mind more then putting ones own money where ones mouth is, which clearly the pollsters NEVER do given that they tend to be consistently wrong AND tend to publish polls that range all over the place so that after the fact can point to an outlier poll to imply that they got the election result right when in reality they most definitely got it very badly wrong!

Will Sheffield Labour Lose MP Seats in BrExit Election 2017? / ElectionOracle / Sheffield

By: Nadeem_Walayat

A perfect storm is about to hit the Labour party where even Labour MP's in the capital city of the Peoples Socialist Republic of South Yorkshire may not be immune to what is likely to transpire, a wipeout of the Labour party at the polls where the driving forces are BrExit, as Theresa May makes a convincing argument for requiring a large majority towards helping ensure the strongest possible hand during the BrExit negotiations without subversion from the Scottish Nationalists or Labour's borrow and spend agenda. After all Sheffield did vote for BrExit.

Theresa May's Political Spectrum Impact on the UK General Election 2017 / ElectionOracle / UK General Election

By: Nadeem_Walayat

For at least the past 30 years, Leaders and parties that most closely appeal to the centre ground tend to win UK general elections. Which is why Labour repeatedly lost election after election during the 1980's and most of the 1990's because whilst Margaret Thatcher was to the right of the political spectrum, Labour was far further to the left and it would take a long hard battle fought by first Neil Kinnock and then John Smith who paved the way for Tony Blair to firmly occupy the centre ground for the next 13 years, even delivering Tony Blair several landslide election victories that Theresa May hopes to replicate.

YouGov Shock Hung Parliament Poll, Labour Could Win General Election 2017! / ElectionOracle / UK General Election

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The media has gone into a frenzy over YouGov's latest poll and resulting seats forecast that creates an illusion of a tight election race when in probable reality no such tight race exists. So the mainstream media has been busy all day reporting on YouGov's headline grabbing shock poll of the Tories losing 20 seats on their current standing by falling to 310, whilst Labour adding about 30 rising to 257 seats resulting in a Hung Parliament. Implying a nightmare election scenario of a weak Labour government controlled by the SNP that like vampires would seek to bleed the United Kingdom dry of its financial blood which has already had an immediate effect on the markets by sending sterling temporarily lower with the real world impact as holiday markers now get less foreign currency for their sterling.

Tory Election Landslide, Labour Decapitation Bloodbath / ElectionOracle / UK General Election

By: Nadeem_Walayat

If the opinion pollsters are to be believed and the Labours worst nightmare comes true with Theresa May winning the election on an vastly increased majority, on a total of over 400 seats. A bloodbath for Labour losing as many as 60 seats, falling from 229 to under 170 resulting in the decapitation of the Labour party, losing many of Labours front benchers and rising stars, leaving behind mostly old dinosaurs who have long passed their electoral hay day.

YouGov Shock Fake Poll Shows Conservatives Losing Election, Hung Parliament / ElectionOracle / UK General Election

By: Nadeem_Walayat

YouGov appears determined to garner the most publicity by continuing to publish what in my opinion are FAKE POLLS that will never reflect reality, only purpose being to feed the mainstream media machine eager to create an illusion of a tight election race when no such race exists. And so the Times reports YouGov's headline grabbing shock poll of the Tories losing 20 seats falling to 310 whilst labour adding about 30 rising to 257 resulting in a Hung Parliament, a nightmare scenario of a weak Labour government controlled by the SNP that like vampires would seek to bleed the United Kingdom dry of its financial blood.
