Which policies specifically are you referring to GMR?





What policies? Ask the public, they are the ones who are saying they won't be tempted to vote for them and of course Corbyn. Of course, if you are right and Labour win then you can tell me "I told you so".

Whatever you think of Benyon he is the best option if you want a Tory. If you want a party of social justice then either of Labour or the Greens are a good vote, and my personal choice is with Labour who have some great policies.





The trouble is those policies (of Labour) are not backed up (supported) by the PLP or former labour voters across the country. The whole point of having "great policies" is to inspire, not revolt the public into voting for the Tories.

If Labour does do badly and Corbyn stands down, all the more reason to vote Labour round here. The very last thing we want is yet another coalition with a party which had a manifesto that makes Labour's look sane! If the LibDims do pick up the odd seat, like West Berks, we are in deep trouble. With them, it's not don't hold your breath, more don't breath in!





Corbyn said he won't stand down if they lose.

That will depend on what your political persuasion is and what is important to you. Against my better judgement, I'm inclined to vote Lib Dem simply because of the PM's approach to hunting wildlife with hounds.


That is going to a free vote. I think there are more important things to worry about. Such as; do you want Corbyn or May?

Corbyn and his credible policies. Hopefully there will be more upsets like Copeland, Labour lose more seats and then he'll have no choice but to step down.





So did Adolf Hitler to some, but that isn't reason enough to vote for him.

Obviously he isn't all bad, but I had forgotten some of his decisions, not least the council settlement where he abstained from voting (which in this instance is crude way of supporting the motion). It doesn't say, but I bet he supports hunting foxes with hounds too. http://www.newburytoday.co.uk/news/news/17...uents-down.html https://www.facebook.com/Dont-Vote-Benyon-454911871519138/





So who do people vote for then? Lib-Dems, which are a waste of space, long with Labour. Whatever you think of Benyon he is the best option.

You saw it that way, I didn't.

My point is it will mean different things to different people, more so when the person who is saying it is hostile. I didn't see it as a smirk and nor did millions of others. You support Corbyn so you and that lot will see it as a smirk.

May's "nasty party" comment drew laugh's from the audience accompanied with a smirk from her.





Define "smirk"? And she is right, the Labour party has now become the "nasty" party. And all this has started when Corbyn took power and Monment infiltrated themselves within the party.

Apparently Woolfe reports feeling numb on his left side, though I figure that's normal for UKIP.


People across the board have been hoping that he (Woolfe) gets well, even though they don't agree with is politics. Even Labour's outcasts hope he gets better, but what do we get from a Corbynites? Jokes. With Corbyn's anti Jewish comments, attacks on their own Labour MP... Theresa May got it right when she said that Corbyn's Labour party is the "nasty party". Corbyn and his group are just a bunch of thugs. If that was a Corbyn Labour MP I would wish him well, not make jokes.

A bit like the Labour party; in fighting, and that is all it is. Who ever comes out on top must makes sure that it has the policies to go forward and take it in the right direction.

He could have said it was a gorilla riding a bicycle and you'd argue that it would depend what he meant by "bicycle". It was a legitimate protest at train overcrowding with no misrepresentation involved? Do you want to have another go at justifying the smear that Corbyn is dishonest?


I argued it the way it was.

But that isn't what he said; that it was a "legitimate protest". You are playing semantics.

I doubt if that will worry them, after all Tony Blair had no real opposition.





Tony Blair had more opposition than May will get from Corbyn.

I have seen no bus advert stating UKIP would divert any money. I saw a proposal that should happen but that isn't the same thing. We weren't voting for a party, we were voting to stay or leave the EU. With Corbyn it is rumoured he was a closet Brexit and his apparent lacklustre support for Remain seemed to support this in some people's eyes.





Good point.
