I feel that the record shows it to be accurate; whether it's fair or not
is a matter of opinion.

Well, I'm not sure that her plans were quite so detailed, but certainly
the refusal to register disenfranchised a lot of Labour supporters.
Maybe they would have been better advised to register, so that herself

Yes; I think that's more or less what makes him a loser. Twice, he
*could* have won, but didn't.

That's confirmed my worst fears. (;-)
