Re: ** The General Election Thread **

Hi Boviomov :) , You are wrong? I think you wrote that reasoned argument "rarely" wins on the forum! I think it is quite obvious that it never wins as it is immediately countered by some sort of abuse. (Fascist, Xenophobic, Racist, Right Winger - add your own personal favourite). I blame i...

Re: Is anyone moving?

Hi all, I have friends in Southampton. They think the weather in Liverpool is bl**dy cold? :shock: They have it very soft down south on all counts! I also had a fellow Boy Sprout years ago who did part of his university placement up at Douneray, November & December, now that was a bit Parky :twi...

Re: ** The General Election Thread **

Afternoon all, Well this is one of the poor pensioners posting! But I ain't complaining as we have no debt and have food to keep us going. But can get hurt when people working in HMRC accused me of "Tax Evasion" when if they had at least a rudimentary education they would see it was "...

Re: Whats wrong with Pacer trains?

Morning all, Sadly the Pacers are proving more reliable than the new CAF rolling stock! The rolling stock situation is a joke in this country, but we ain't laughing :oops: . Bring back the Black 5's. IGICB MM

Re: Is anyone moving?

Hi all :? , I think that rather than Sturgeon Land I think that the Island of Ireland will be of particular interest to watch? Not great switches of allegiance, but the subtle shift to SDLP in that province will have major implications! Sinn Fein never took up their seats at Westminster, but the SDL...

Re: ** The General Election Thread **

Hi Mike Sales, Thanks my wife is Welsh but she didn't see the piece, so I have to rely on my defective faculties! :oops: Hi Windymiller, I think rather than HMS Equality of Outcome it is more like HMS Hood - shell straight into the exposed magazine :x . But Momentum are still blaming everyone else b...

Re: ** The General Election Thread **

Hi PDQmobile, I bumbled into the Welsh anomaly on the Parliament Channel, with the returning Officer for the Arfon Constituency (I think I caught it right, but it was Arfon or Arvon???). The chap switching between Welsh & English non-plussed me. So ferret away for your own needs. I'll check in t...

Re: ** The General Election Thread **

Hi Mike, But if in a compulsory voting system there was a box on the Ballot stating - "None of them" would that appease your disquiet? It would be fine by me.
I just saw that in one Welsh seat there were 71 ballots excluded because they had no mark at all? Vanishing ink or what? :roll: MM

Re: ** The General Election Thread **

Hi again , "There is no benefit of hindsight until the votes have been counted"! Does that cover Mouthy Kuenssburg hinting about her knowledge of the postal vote figures? Such an act is why we have Electoral Laws. Send her to chokey :roll: . People who do not bother to vote can't be taken ...

Re: ** The General Election Thread **

Hello Pete75, You say that I am provoking people to leave the UK just because they disagree over issues such as Brexit? I did no such thing! I was merely pointing out the fact that at each ballot we get far too many threatening to leave the UK if they don't get their way, all the way through the hus...

Re: ** The General Election Thread **

Hello Oldjohnw, I would normally reveal who I cast my vote for, but your abuse urges me to set the record correctly? I voted for a "Liberal Party" candidate! Not Lib Dem who are addicted to dirty tricks, but a long standing Liberal who made his stance quite clear in his election leaflet, s...
