It's odd that some people have been on here and complained about the lack of variety of topics yet few seem to take the time to start new threads.

Example

The train involved had a guard onboard, so, fifty shades of meh.

This current action is meant to be about the safety critical role of the train guards in despatching trains but in my opinion it is actually a final stand by the RMT union since if a guard is no longer required on every train then it renders future strike action completely ineffective.

It may have been a safety issue, I agree. In the days of slam door trains but know? With sliding doors, pressure sensors, closed circuit surveillance, computerisation the safety issue is redundant. Apparently no guards will lose their jobs. But hey! It's an excuse for the RMT to flex it's muscles and create chaos.

Quick one to all you who have to use the trains, enjoy the next month, the longest industrial action in a generation. And labour want to give more power to the unions.

"In clip that is circulating online today, filmed in 2011 when Mr Corbyn was a backbench MP, he also claims that the then director general Mark Thompson had 'an agenda'."

"He said: 'I think there is a bias [in the BBC] towards saying that Israel has a democracy in the Middle East, that Israel has a right to exist, Israel has its security concerns.'"

Oh dear.

We had a demmer roung last week, when I explained why I couldn't vote for Swinson he actually had the good grace to look sheepish. I think he kinda agreed with me.

Any chance of the Lib Dems in Newbury? Thinking about a small punt...

You were done. You can get 25s with Corals or Ladbrokes.
Lib Dems are 400s and a Conservative majority is 4/9.

Locally 1/8 Conservative and 9/2 Lib Dems (Skybet)

Really? Oh well, never mind. Not much of a one for the bookies but even at those odds it's worth a quick punt.

Another reason to give up work when comrade Corbyn wins.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/election-2019-50427369

The more I hear about these great policies the more I like them. I'm going to make a lifestyle choice after the great leaders victory to leave a huge unpayable debt to the next generation. I dont have any kids so its great. Live for today. Tomorrows fools can pick up the tab.

VOTE LABOUR!

I generally don't give a **** what any of the politicians say, but that one is pure "oh, vote for us, we're lovelies!". It's about as ridiculous as free chocolate for everyone for life.
"Mr McDonnell said that if other broadband providers did not want to give access to British Broadband, then they would also be taken into public ownership." What a marvellous way to bring tech development to a standstill. Who in their right mind is going to continue to develop a business, knowing it could just be taken away on a whim?
Broadband is not essential to life, it's a luxury. Like all luxuries, you can choose to have it if you can afford it. Gas, electric, and water; they're essentials. Without those there is the potential for death, without broadband, not really.
I very much doubt that anyone struggling to heat and/or light their home would say "I can't afford gas and electric, but I have free broadband so we're all good".

I'm left wondering if, instead of writing an election manifesto, they just watched Idiocracy and thought "yeah, we'll go with that'.

I'm sure that he will use every trick in the book to obtain that healthy majority as well.

As will the aged Marxist no doubt. In fact, he's already started.

People are allowed to change their mind you know. And if Boris attempts a no deal in 2020 should his deal pass, you'll see it blocked again. The country comes before the party.

he doesn't need 'a deal' he needs a healthy majority then he can do what he wants.

I see Nige has stood his troops down. Should be 50+ Con majority now. Let me guess, remainers will demand another vote as they wont like the outcome. Illegal vote! Its Russia innit!😂😂😂😂😂

Won't make a massive difference over all.

The problem is that services have been starved for years. There needs to be spending. There isn't a great deal of difference between the spending plans. The Tories have starved the public of policing, education and healthcare and blamed Labour!

FTFY.

But its OK, nothing wrong with lumbering future generations with crippling amounts of debt and interest repayments on Government bond issues. Smart fiscal planning, your kids and their kids are sure to thank you.
