ME......Why not? To be honest if my bloody dog wore a blue rosette it would be voted in. Actually come to think of it my "bloody" mut is a socialist as he expects me to feed him, he hogs the fire and contributes sod all to the benefit of the country. The Limp (non) Dems are on the front foot as a useless piece of recycling material landed on my mat on Monday evening, which even the canine companion ignored but, whoever or whatever one thing is certain, it won't solve a darned thing.

The illiberal undemocrats have even got a bl00dy van going round. Why would I vote for a woman whose husbands company benefits considerably from ahem "EU contributions"...??? and what about the environment with all this election crap being taken from the letterbox to the bin..

Least it opens up the debate to more topics than brexit. Never really understood the workings of a campaign manager's brain that lead him to the conclusion that the electorate will be influenced by a sheet of propaganda worthy of Paul Joseph Goebbels, but at least it will save the party activists the unsavory task of knocking doors on a cold November evening.

We're giving the Tories as evens at the moment. Although Keith Vaz hasn't helped Labour image.

If body language is anything to go by Labour know they are going to lose. Little doubt if they had a half decent leader the job would be there for the taking, but the traditional labour voter will probably abstain other than vote for Corbyn even though the left view him as the messiah. Smart money goes on a hanged (sic) parliament and 5 more years of treading mud.

Interpret how you like but we never hear of a bookmaker getting the sums wrong. A fiver each way (lose or lose badly) on the Limp (non) Dems at 66/1 must be worth a punt. Smart money pointing to a high turnout is quite interesting but a foot of snow may change that.

Guess a few bods in tory high command headed for the gas oven when that helpful comment was first heard. Though what he said is, in essence, true it does grate the molars when "johnny foreigner" gets involved in our countries affairs.
Nice to see that JC is offering us the world and those nasty middle class home owners are going to pay for it. Let's hear it for the working man say I. rolleyes.gif

You wouldn't be. You would be casting your vote to select the MP who represents the Newbury constituency in the House of Commons. The majority of prospective parliamentary candidates are affiliated to a political party but only members of that political party are entitled to elect the leader of that party.

I predict we'll get another 600+ self serving people meeting in a big hall in Westminster before Christmas.

Anyone disagree?

I would disagree with that statement. Most MPs are self serving as you correctly point out but there are a few who genuinely care about their constituencies and their constituents and will try to represent their concerns to the best of their ability in Parliament. I have to agree that there are not many of those but they do exist.

Labour are going to introduce a new tax bracket for anyone earning over 80k. Coincidentally MPs salary is £79,468.
My guess is the next time MPS get a rise the band will change as well...😂😂😂
