    Green 44%
    Lib Dem 33%
    Labour 22%

    The drop in lib dem and the rise in Labour seems to show corbyns approach is working in some respect for remain voters. If anything I'd say his 'extreme' nationalisation heavy manifesto is what's keeping remain tories and fiscal lib dems away, most of them just can't imagine voting for him even with brexit.

    "Business rates are causing real issues
    for high-street retailers and others.
    A Labour government will review
    the option of a land value tax on
    commercial landlords as an
    alternative and develop a retail
    sector industrial strategy."

    From what @amey has written on here before his partner is an occasional commuter, but doesnt ride that regularly.
    On a well fitting cargo with reasonable standover height for a shorter person i assume they'd be fine. Guessing this cargo is more baby duties than carrying 100kg of archive boxes.

    If only omnium made a smaller/step through frame i wouldn't see a problem, especially as the steering feels more 'normal' than a lot of other cargoes.

    I had a friend probably about that height who managed on a small mini-max. Wouldn't recommend it for a none confidant cyclist tho, lack of standover height will be a real problem

    I feel like having 12 locations this time might have stretched them too thin, seems not enough people to hold sites this time, though the dose of british rain may have helped with that. Hearing reports police are moving to clear one of the bridges already.

    They always take loads more than the stated. Problems usually occur with snapped spokes or chains rather than the frame.
