It is disproportionately younger people [who have applied to appear on the register], but you have to realise that it's disproportionately younger people who are most likely to be missed off the register in the first place.feedback

May 22 2017 Labour Party
We can learn a lot about a person if we know what types of things he or she talks about or comments on the most frequently. There are numerous topics with which John Curtice is associated, including EU and UK. Most recently, John Curtice has been quoted saying: “In particular it has disrupted Labour ever since the referendum, and it has historically disrupted the Conservatives. If the polls putting the Conservatives on as much as 48 percent are right, then there's nothing anyone can do about it. Even if everybody voted tactically, May's lead would be unassailable. If the lead narrows, we would begin to see that tactical voting could make quite a difference. If the lead is below 10 percentage points then it starts to affect the outcome.” in the article Britain’s General Election Dominated by Brexit Tactical Campaigns.

John Curtice quotes

It is far from clear that concerns about Brexit are likely to change the minds of many voters about the merits or otherwise of independence. So long, of course, as the UK government succeeds in delivering both free trade and immigration control.feedback

We have a standoff, and there's not going to be any immediate resolution.feedback

Many Remain voters would like to see an end to the less popular parts of Britain's current membership of the EU, while many Leave voters would like to retain the seemingly more desirable parts, such as free trade, cheap mobile phone calls, and clean beaches.feedback

This is perhaps typical of the pick-and-mix attitude to the EU that has characterised much of Britain's relationship with the institution during its 44 years of membership so far.feedback

Many a Remain voter would like to see the end of freedom of movement...the priority that the UK government appears to place on this issue is not necessarily at odds with the views of those who voted Remain. For the EU, free trade and freedom of movement are meant to go together. For British voters they do not, especially for Conservative voters. Meeting their expectations for Brexit could thus prove difficult...Mrs May could well face a hard task at home keeping voters on-side.feedback

It is a combination that potentially presents the UK government with a considerable challenge.feedback

The broader truth is that, in a country that is still so divided on the merits of independence, it is difficult for either side to claim clear majority support in any aspect of the surrounding debate – and that includes the debate on holding a second ballot.feedback

Meanwhile UKIP are now facing the possibility that the rewards of the fact that the majority of the country voted to leave may go to the Conservative Party.feedback

We're left with an opposition that is losing votes in by-election after by-election ... all very different parts of England but the message to Labour is the same.feedback

Although a majority of those who voted against independence voted to remain in the EU, they're not necessarily committed to the EU to the same extent as they are to the UK.feedback

The key challenge facing the government, as the prime minister herself seemed to recognize, is whether the EU can be persuaded to strike a deal on free trade on anything like the terms and conditions that she has in mind.feedback

What this by-election shows is that it's a warning to all political parties as to potentially how disruptive this Brexit process is going to be for the regular practice of party politics.feedback

Few 'remain' strongholds are doing better than expected. There are far more places where 'leave' are doing better than expected.feedback

It may be possible that the experts are going to have egg on their face later on tonight. It may be the first sign that the 'remain' side are not going to do as well as those early polls suggested.feedback

There's many a voter out there who agrees with Remain on the economy and Leave on immigration, and the implications of risk are not yet kicking in for Remain. Higher turnout is not necessarily good for Remain.feedback

On immigration there is a problem, and there is a solution (presented by the Leave camp). On the economy, there is a warning but no optimism. And that is potentially a strategic weakness.feedback
