  1. General Election 2017

    The whole conversation was around TV debates , I think you are skewed with your view of what I've written it WAS a generic sentence , I know cause I wrote it and you didn't . I understand the desire to pick posts apart , that's fair game , but this isn't the first time where you've decided that you know what I'm saying better than I do , I find it frankly bizarre ... if anyone thinks I'm working off some narrative or script then they should probably go get help ... and my script writer English lessons read back at what I said , the whole post was about why I could understand Corbyn not doing a T.V show , same point I said about May a few days previously , perhaps they've come to the conclusion there is more to lose than gain by doing such a show ... the very next reply after mine seem to suggest a small form of agreement , though not with everything I'd said
  2. General Election 2017

    the Guardian article I quoted suggests those gasps differently to you ..maybe I'm not the only one skewed ... perhaps a strongly worded letter to the Editor is required ? I'll concede that "Do you accept that when Labour was last in power, it overspent" , isn't the same thing as my phrasing it as " accept some blame for the economic mess" .. but as a generic sentence inside my post it was close enough to give the gist of the point I was making that the TV show damaged him .. put it that way it was close enough for Chindie to reply with "I'd agree " , not 2 words I see from him very often

    I think you missed the part where Sharky said "with those who don't agree with him. "
  4. General Election 2017

    I acknowledged there were other factors , I said I thought it played a huge part , hence why I could see Corbyn ( and May for that matter) not wanting to go down that route the financial bit I wasn't arguing whose fault it was , more the impact of that loaded question and Ed's response to it ... the article I just linked to in a reply to snowy covers a lot of it but I'll link to it again here as it's actually quite a good article , surprisingly for the Guardian, the article shows that right up until the Exit Poll on election day , they were expecting Ed to be PM , even if the Tories won the most seats ( other than a majority , which didn't seem to have even been considered a remote possibility !)

    or not as the case may be .. (I'm assuming you weren't picking holes in the Brown line which was clearly not serious )
  6. without knowing the discussion , I'm confused now Was she trying to prevent tourism or promote terrorism ?
  7. General Election 2017

    I'd argue the QT TV interview in 2015 cost Ed the election ( coalition rather than outright) .. obviously not the only reason , but I think they were harmful to him , heck he even managed to trip over leaving the stage , but his refusal to accept some blame for the economic mess (his party rather than him personally , we all know it was Browns fault ) definitely damaged him ( there were almost gasps from the audience as I recall ) Ok , Corbyn is in a slightly different situation is he isn't look to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory , but it might be playing on his advisors mind ... lets face it you can almost see the plants in the audience asking about Trident ,Brexit and the National Anthem even the I agree with Nick surge didn't transfer into votes ... so maybe the wins of a debate don't outweigh the losses ?
  8. General Election 2017

    you included "messed it all up " though as part of your comment ... I'm not convinced that your parents (for example ) have ruined any 18 year olds future by their actions ,anymore than mine have (for example)
  9. General Election 2017

    is there some evidence to support this claim ?
  10. General Election 2017

    From that article , it seems to be Women under 40 that would put Corbyn in power ? Labour is particular popular with women under 40, who split 42 per cent in favour of Mr Corbyn’s party and 27 per cent for Theresa May’s. 12 per cent support the Lib Dems. Men under 40 also back Labour by 32 per cent to 31 per cent for the Conservatives,

    Indeed .. presumably if loads of angry stock brokers were to take over Corbyns Twitter and Facebook pages and hurl abuse ..it would be proof that Corbyn isn't a shoe in to be our next Prime Minister ? My Facebook feed is probably like a lot of people's ..I see a lot of anti Tory and Brexit stuff ... usually always by the same posters , posters who are more politically active , abreast with current affairs , posters who sorta feel that facebook isn't for sharing pictures of food , more for showing your intellectual superiority by calling a Tory a word removed .... I think there is 1 person on my feed who posts pro_tory stuff and he's Scottish and appears to be doing it to wind up SNP voters in his circle of friends .... so using the scientific Facebook method for determining the result of the election , based on my News feed Labour will have a majority of about 300 ...
  12. Things that piss you off that shouldn't

    thought I was reading somewhere the other day that it isn't ..only in London is it illegal , as per The Highway code elsewhere it's down to individual councils to get a traffic regulation order .... which I don't think any / many have .
  13. The History Thread

    Despite the slightly misleading headline ( the bomb contained no explosives or nuclear material ) this documentary on BBC 4 in May looks like it could be interesting

    Nice try but I drive an Audi and I know for fact headlights don't have any setting other than full beam
