Re: ** The General Election Thread **

And Al what you actually wrote about Germans, word for word. A lifetime of competing with and working with the Germans has convinced me that although they now genuinely eschew any form of militarism they exhibit an unwelcome desire to totally dominate other nations. No twisting necessary. Spot on, ...

Re: ** The General Election Thread **

I suppose calling a person a "gammon" which refers to skin colour is much worse and actually racist rather than derogatory. has the term "gammon" been used in such a way in this forum and if so why has it not been addressed as a racist slur? Using the same tortuous logic the gam...

Re: ** The General Election Thread **

I've never met anyone who chants "four legs good, two legs bad. You must know some strange people if you have. You never read Animal Farm then? Or lived in a coalfield, or a real working class area? They don't chant that, but they never look at things objectively and just mindlessly chant endl...

Re: ** The General Election Thread **

Philosophical question. Why is it okay to refer to other human beings as "turkeys" but not okay to refer to other human beings as "pillar boxes"? Neither shows respect for other folk or for diversity of opinion. I suppose calling a person a "gammon" which refers to ski...

Re: ** The General Election Thread **

I go simply on his record and the people in his cabinet and in parliament. I don't think there is the smallest smidgen of a chance of a "one nation" government. He is surrounded by hard right libertarian ideologues. I predict much propaganda on "one nation ", investment and the ...

Re: ** The General Election Thread **

It's a work pension not from a so called pension pot. I know quite a few pensioners who have a hell of a lot more than me. Anyhow wealth is nothing to do with whether or not you're a pensioner it's to do with what your income is. If someone earns say £30,000 a year they're not wealthy. If they were...

5. Goodbye food standards and animal welfare. Rees Mogg said as much in April. Food 'checked' in other countries ie Australian beef of American chlorinated chicken will not be checked again on entering the UK.

Re: ** The General Election Thread **

Well you're probably a lot more wealthy than me. I'm retired and on a pension which is no more than the national average salary so my income is er average. I think if you're retired and on an average wage that makes you a pretty wealthy pensioner. ;) I don't know any pensioners that even come close...

Re: ** The General Election Thread **

Well Pete, I am willing to bet the farm that I am considerably less wealthy than most people here. I no longer own property. I am not and never was an international businessman either. I did export a lot of my own businesses unique software and made many friends with suppliers and customers abroad....

Whilst the Tories on this thread like having a good gloat,sticking the knife is and twisting it(after all going off the past ten year in power they like to watch a good knife fight and apparently a good drug deal too).

Re: ** The General Election Thread **

He literally expelled the entire group of one nation MPs from the party and replaced them with hard line ideologues. And his one nation seems to exclude immigrants, unless they are there for laughs. And the NHS? He's mentioned building and opening new hospitals but hasn't mentioned how many he's go...
