    Holy crap! Let's hope that gets confirmed. That would be amazing.

    I know @Sasha I assumed it was going to be top scientists. I hope they wouldn't have put this up unless it was a very strong possibility.

    Wow, that would be incredible if that does happen. Like @NelliePledge says, I wouldn't expect IiME to have put it up unless there was a strong possibility of it happening.

    That would be amazing. We have been getting good coverage in some of the UK alternative news-site popular with Corbyn's supporters.

    At the top of your initial post, you should see a button titled Thread Tools. Click on that then you should have the ability to edit the title.

    @Esther12 Simon Duffy weighing in from Centre for Welfare Reform will I think have had some influence

    Also not to be underestimated the impact of the parliamentary screening of Unrest where Diane Abbott was in attendance and of course she is in Corbyns inner circle.

    Jaw on the floor. Brilliant if it happens, I'm guessing it will unless something happens to stop it, like illness, a general election, world war 3...
    Thanks @NelliePledge

    I think we can thank Unrest film and the parliamentary screening for this.

    Well after Vince Cable's tweet following the parliamentary screening of Unrest Corbyn probably thought he couldn't risk those 250,000 votes going to the libdems. Maybe soon they'll all be getting in on the act, and racing to be the first to denounce Wessely, Crawley etc. Sorry, somebody slap me, dreaming again.

    That is how the game is played.

    As the Wesselys and Crawleys of this world know all too well.

    Bizarre of VC given Norman Lamb actually said on TV (I saw it) that he was liaising with Wesser to create Lib Dem health policy during the last election.
