Re: ** The General Election Thread **

Anyone voted yet? I'll be down to the polling station later. I say "I" as in my family only the men can vote. I vote but Mrs H cannot, my son-in-law can vote, but not my daughter, my other daughter's boyfriend but not she, my brother but not his wife, and not his adult daughters. It's qui...

Re: Boris Johnson: Why is a proven liar in power?

It seems views on Corbyn are heavily biased by political views but it's universal that everyone dislikes boris. I have a couple of times dared to challenge the landslide of vitriol against him, but it's pretty tiring work and the vast majority (that post) on this forum are anti-BoJo and very loudly...

Re: Boris Johnson: Why is a proven liar in power?

Interesting interview between three retiring MPs from labour, LibDems and conservatives, all three big hitters in their party at one time and generally respected within and outside of their parties. Iirc it was the labour politician who said Corbyn hasn't changed from the 70s. I can't remember the ...

Re: Boris Johnson: Why is a proven liar in power?

So more of the same or a big step into the unknown with a leader the quality and politics of Corbyn. Which cliff edge do you want Britain to jump off? Quality? Depends what you mean by quality. I'm bored with reading stuff about him that I can't find (despite looking) any basis in fact for. Why do ...

Re: ** The General Election Thread **

I'm not suggesting that PR should not be introduced for electing MPs, but I think an inevitable consequence of that would be that many who call for PR would not be happy about some of the people who would be elected, and I don't simply mean Nigel Farage, but rather the likes of Stephen Yaxley Lenno...

Re: Boris Johnson: Why is a proven liar in power?

I think we've all got what we deserve. Righties have boris representing them and lefties have Corbyn (supported by McDonnell and Mccluskey). I'm not sure who has come out best with those two leaders, if anyone. I only know being centrist in politics I'm certainly a loser in British politics right n...

YES = especially as she is Shadow home Secretary!! Waddabout the queen then? :wink: Or anyone else FTM We're not talking about a parking ticket here! Nor am I.

Re: ** The General Election Thread **

I hear that the BBC and ITV respectively have fired Kuenssburg and Preston. I haven't bothered checking any facts but wanted you to know and share. I can always delete the post when it has been shared 10,000 times. One only hopes this is true,a petition was taken down by Change.Uk. She's no more th...

Re: Jaden Moodie

Many victims here. And if the Tories continue to diminish family support and depend on pretending to be tougher on crime, this won't be the last. This young lad is one of many in an environment that lends itself readily to drugs and drug dealing.It's a failure in the first instance of a solid famil...

Re: ** The General Election Thread **

Kunsberg and the BBC breaking the rules again today revealing the postal votes. I’ve long been wary of postal votes and this is one of the reasons why. https://twitter.com/brexit_sham/status/1204770258327887872 We are told no one sees the papers so either that rule is not adhered to or Laura is spr...
