PB Nighthawks is now open

January 5th, 2015

Home of the web’s best political conversation

Relax, and converse into the night on the day’s events in PB Nighthawks.

If you’ve always been a lurker, why not take the final few Steps, and become a poster on PB, it would be a Tragedy if we missed your contributions, hopefully this will set off a Chain Reaction amongst you lurkers and at least 5,6,7,8 of you lurkers will delurk,

The round up of recent events (click on the links below, and it will bring up the relevant link)

  1. Fewer than two thirds want either side to win an absolute majority
  2. Ed Miliband can make an argument, but can he make voters listen? The Labour leader’s election launch may be the turning point when his attacks on the Tories start to connect with voters
  3. If Miliband wants to win “the big argument” he’ll need to enthuse electorate and activists alike
  4. The trap the Tories have set for Labour on cuts
  5. Now the economy is finally recovering, 2015 could well be the year of the left. A new study gives hope to progressives who have been disheartened by a shift to the right in recent years
  6. The political posters that backfired – and why you can’t fool the internet. A Conservative ad showcases the German countryside. Is it possible to avoid visual gaffes in the run up to an election?
  7. Opportunity for the Tories as Ukip swings Left.
  8. Stalemate? The legal mechanics of having two general elections this year. What are the legal and constitutional impediments on there being, as some commentators have suggested, two general elections this year?
  9. Would Labour consider scrapping Trident to make way for a deal with the SNP? The Labour leader hints he could water down his stance on Trident.
  10. Nick Clegg’s new year pitch for eternal power
  11. Labour wins more seats. The Conservatives win more votes. What price electoral reform?
  12. Scotland: No Country for Free Speech
  13. Politicians trusted less than estate agents, bankers and journalists
  14. David Cameron spent New Year’s Eve ‘dad dancing’ with Blur’s Alex James
  15. The Mathematics Of Pixar Movies
  16. 949 years ago tomorrow, the last Anglo-Saxon King of England was crowned.
