Just like to congratulate Laura and her whole team on a well fought campaign and I hope she can help bring the party back to the middle ground and fight not just for the party ideals but also for the people she is meant to represent. Well done.

I think that is something that we can all agree upon.

Yes.

However, 'she lost' some of her majority, but I think a teddy bear would have polled about the same in Newbury as she did.

So what happened to the 'youth quake'? or all the 'voiced support for the other parties? Look at the candidate Labour put forward, scruffy unshaved kid, shows they didn't even try. But yes, a true blue seat.

Yes, a dead badger with a Conservative badge would probably have gained approximately the same share of the vote in my opinion.

Ironic really, because it was within the grasp of those who wanted one. They just had to refuse the election. But history now. It's time to move on. We are where we are and we just have to hope Johnson acts responsibly since all Tory MPs swore an oath of allegiance.

Interesting perspective. You only want an election if the result is what you want? Democracy eh? What a sh1t.... and before you join the "but 52 percent voted for pro remain parties" that is rubbish. 30 percent (or 3 million voters) of pro leave voters voted Labour anyway. It's in the DNA. So as even Verhoftwat admitted it's over.


In other news it's good to see some commie lefty MPs taking it well...

I quite agree, the irony there of course is that a dead badger would be infinitely more use and infinitely less damaging than a labour candidate.

Quick question, did all those people who have been returning Labour MP'S since the dawn of time suddenly become thick when they voted Tory? Or, were they thick when they were voting labour, just didn't know it. Answers please on a self addressed polling card.

I'm actually bored of these conversations hence why I've been absent of late. Let's just hope Johnson doesn't **** the country now.

Understandable; I suspect the day of the 'on-line forum' is over. The other Newbury Forum seems to have shrunk back even further and that one still seems to attract new members. It's two years since this forum was graced by anyone new. Doubtless, getting NWNs in house IT support to switch the thing off would be more trouble than it's worth, so they'll just let it wither away and some would say so what.

Shame really as it allows one to throw an opinion into the wider audience from the comfort of an armchair. The problem has been with this, and I guess similar forums, is the intransigence of some of the contributors. I may believe that black is the new blue but I do not expect others to agree until the case is proven though by the same token if someone says it's actually orange then I will listen.

Better wish everyone a merry xmas while the chance is exists . cool.gif
