Some recent thoughts on the election so far…11 November 2019
Well, it hasn’t been dull so far, has it?
I’ve put down some of my thoughts about the election in various places in the last week.
First, about a week ago I had a short piece for The Conversation about the MPs how are not standing for re-election in 2019. You can find that here: http://theconversation.com/uk-election-who-is-standing-down-as-an-mp-and-will-it-change-the-campaign-126325
Second, in the wake of the first Welsh Political Barometer poll of the campaign I wrote about how things are looking for Welsh Labour for the New Statesman here: https://www.newstatesman.com/politics/elections/2019/11/could-labour-lose-wales
Third, I put down some reflections on the Conservative campaign thus far in this piece: https://blogs.spectator.co.uk/2019/11/can-the-welsh-tories-recover-from-their-disastrous-campaign-launch/
I also appeared on Radio 4’s The World Tonight last week, in the wake of Alun Cairns’ resignation. You can hear my contribution a little after 18 minutes in here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/m000b0cr
