Thread: 2017 General Election

  1. #161
    I voted Conservative in the last erection.

    The day when politician's answer a question directly, will be the day that I vote for them - despite being Conservative.

    I believe that the Tories will make us a better country, while not what is popular to get them elected again.

    I hate austerity, but believe it's needed to make the money saving fairer, and, we get such a great ride in this country of ours, so, we need to be appreciative of what we have.

    The money has to come from somewhere.

    Austerity and Osbornomics hasn't worked - the UK debt has trebled since 2010!.

    One that wants to be in government.

    1979: Labour won 269 seats - James Callaghan resigned.
    1992 : Labour won 271 seats - Neil Kinnock resigned

    you seem pleased at potential trouble with Brexit. would you like us to remain in the single market and, therefore, retain free movement of people?

    for sure, always funny to see people doubling back on themselves. the even funnier thing about Umunna is that he had his chance to stake his own leadership claim but bottled it. at least Owen Smith had a go himself, albeit on a heavily flawed premise.

    that is a statement that requires far greater scrutiny than it has had. it quite clearly implies that Christian beliefs are incompatible with a liberal society. yet we continue to bend over backwards to appease religion and the religious.

    it also implies that he has been dishonest with his true beliefs for political gain.

    there will be a time in the future when we're all dead and people will look back at us and wonder what the f*ck we were playing at.

    I think our man Tipster has previously expressed his lust for Ms May. it's the power that excites him, I suspect.

    So how would vastly increased public spending halt that?

    Politics on the brain. Ha.

    Sums politics up and why so many don't vote. No keys near, but more nearer humour than the original word.


    Mrs May is alright. Sure.

    Don't get me started on Amber Rudd.

    I don't follow. Callaghan lost seats in 79. Kinnock was expected to win in 92 but lost. No-one expected Corbyn to do so well.

    I don't like the idea of free movement of people but if its the only way we remain part of the single market then so be it. Immigration was not my main reason for voting to leave, but I understand why people like yourself would be swayed by it. Maybe if i lived in London, Manchester, Glasgow etc I would feel different.

    We will never know how strategic investment may have affected the economy. What is clear is that the Tories economic policy hasn't worked.

    If the general election was taking place next week i think that the Labour party
    would have won it for sure as the response from the government to the tower block
    fire has been a bloody disgrace. Its been 3 days now and there is still no official help.

    I don't see Theresa May lasting as PM for much longer, there is still no deal yet with the DUP.
