Re: Finland Future Female (FFF)

Don't forget May. Two women PMs and both Tories. I still find that strange considering labour equality efforts over the years. Time for a female labour leader perhaps?

Sad day. Well at least Boris will be 100% responsible for what happens?

We have a share of the blame due to the 2016 referendum though.

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

He told the BBC's Andrew Neil decisions would be made about party leader Jeremy Corbyn's future when the actual results were in. Took this comment from BBC news page about the election. It's about comments made by McDonnell to Andrew Neil. If we could trust labour to install someone capable who wou...

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. However I'd still rather vote Tory than labour because I do believe a lot of labour policies are not in the national interest. I don't agree with a lot of Tory policies too but overall imh...

Re: Milk down the sink!

My son had a habit of drinking milk from the little jugs supplied at cafes. Sometimes before I'd put any in my coffee. Still, milk is good for you so I wasn't that bothered. It's the only time he really drank milk.

Re: Finland Future Female (FFF)

How did you read it if it was behind a paywall? Can you summarise what it said? You made a post implying that Macron's comment wasn't as widely reported but without saying in what way the truth is different.

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 l...

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?

Re: Finland Future Female (FFF)

Macron's too. Brain dead comment over NATO was a stupid phrase to actually say publicly imho. Have you seen what he actually said, or only reports of its English translation? Only reports but if it's different I'd be interested to know. In English as my French translation skills I'm afraid might ma...

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 no...

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

Well starting point to check that is perhaps the wikipedia page on polling for 2017 election. There's a long list of polling figures right up to election with links to sources. If they're wrong do contact wikipedia and get them changed. There's also a page on 2019 polling including seat predictions....

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

Last paragraph. Pretty clear. And we know the things he has already said and done: threatened the press, illegally shut down Parliament, refused to appear before the liaison committee. In our first year we will set up a Constitution, Democracy & Rights Commission that will examine these issues ...

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

Sorry but polls were showing at 2 to 5% point lead in 2017 in those published during the last week before GE day. Boris is polling with a higher lead than that this week. Transferred to seats you're talking 230 labour 330+ Tory with 41 at most to SNP. How does that work out with the coalition having...

Re: Finland Future Female (FFF)

Would having all women leaders be better? I’m really not so sure, typically only exceptionally able women get into positions of power but some of them (other women) would doubtless prove worse than the men that they replace. I think that ‘promotion’ should always be based on ability to do the job a...

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

Iirc polling was not as much towards Tories in 2017. 2 to 5% in Tory favour, election vote 2.5% in Tory favour. Current polls are at 9 to 11% in Tory favour. Whilst polls can be wildly wrong it's quite a drop to getting labour into a position of forming a government. First difficulty is in a hung pa...
