Trains are crowded now. How will they be able to cope with such a massive increase in passenger numbers that this would bring about without first putting in place the necessary increase in infrastructure?

Dont worry about that biker. Everything free. Luxury communism now!!🤣👍

If Corbyn get's the key to no 10 we will all be a charity case. Anyone see him being "grilled" by Andrew Neil this evening? Not a happy bunny was he.

Economic madness. Under his plans Theresa May will get a 26k payout. 😂

Magic money tree? He needs a bloody forest!!

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

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

Well, I've just layed a century on Labour to win, got 12's. Was going to put something on lib Dems but it's just a waste of money.

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)

My first thought is that every FTSE and FTSE250 company will move its registered office to Alderney or Douglas and that tax take will crash.

My 2nd thought is that to make up for this shortfall all middle earners (25k+) will see significant tax rises to compensate for this.

My 3rd thought is that they really are living in some sort of parallel universe. 🤣

It’s not quite water, but it is becoming increasingly hard to live without Internet access.

Yep but water IS essential to live. Broadband isn't. In my view the following should be considered for nationalisation

1. Water
2. Rail

Both should only be done so if the Unions agree not to strike.

Nowt else.

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'.


Free chocolate you say? That would be against the great leaders views. Now free electic cars...that's more like it. And it ticks boxes. 😂😂👍

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!

Yes, exactly like that. Obviously all parties are guilty of this but at some point it becomes a bit like 1984 when you are actively encouraged to forget or ignore previous statements that contradict the current message.

All Politicians lie. Always have. Always will. It's the nature of the beast. The only ky difference now is that social media is more of an influence. It used to be just press barons...

It's called parliamentary democracy. Remainers have been banging on about it since the last election. Expect the fire of remoaners will turn to "proportional representation" if he get a majority... oh and another election cos this one was fixed by Russians. 😂😂

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.

That depends if they are actually changing minds or just lying to try and get elected...I mean its almost like all 3 main parties are promising spending plans they won't deliver...

You know it is getting nasty when one party blames the other for the flooding in Yorkshire. None of them are prepared to stand up and point the finger at those who have encouraged development along the river basin which can only disrupt the natural water flow to the detriment of all. Then of course we have the Libs and Greens, (as in naive), blaming climate change and suggesting by staying chained to the EU we somehow will be "saved". Extreme weather conditions were more prevalent during the 18th century, (which predates the industrial revolution), but no one bothers to research these facts before jumping on the current bandwagon.

Incidentally if you want to see the effects of climate change take a look at the Carnian Pluvial event which was the result of an increase in CO2 and not a single human in sight. (Thankfully). Now that was proper rainfall. laugh.gif



If always amazes me that people buy property in places called "fishlake" or even locally "two rivers way"....its almost like the clue is in the name....

Always worth a punt, But we do now have a superb candidate with pedigree.

A remainer that is towing the party line (for now). I understand whty she has been picked and is obviously an intelligent person.

I do hope though that she doesn't change her mind after the vote and becomes a thorn in the side. Here's hoping! A politician that does what they say...

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.


Corbyn would finish this Country. He makes unelectable leaders like Foot and Kinnock look moderates. He would take away freedom of choice through central big government policy. I honestly think some of the brainwashed don't have a clue what will happen when Brian drain and Wealth flight occurs. They will be ******. But I still say it is the peoples choice so if it does occur they will only have themselves to blame. I certainly wont be marching or protesting, as it is called democracy. #reapwhatyousow
