Both parties have their racism problems, so accusations of antisemitism and islamophobia didn't help discriminate between the two. But please let me share some tiny nuggets of rage on antisemitism..

"But will that policy help us hold Blyth Valley?" The huge failure of the Corbyn project could change the Tory party. They will now have many more constituencies with low wages and high benefit claimant rates that they will represent, feel a bond with, and want to keep on side.

Dear Lib Dems, my local MP @laylamoran  did well last night. You will be thinking of her for your next leader. She is energetically opposed to all new homes in Oxford, the least affordable city in Britain. If you get housing that badly wrong, nobody under 40 will vote for you.
