  1. General Election 2017

    To be honest, and I'm not being insulting but it think many people believe that the anti Tories, like myself, are exaggerating. They hear some of the things I perceive and point out as immoral but they don't see them. They don't experience them themselves. I'm not being critical, I work with liberal but politically ambivalent people who have said things in a general sense like "Well things have been okay for me under the Conservatives". Or "When I last went to the doctors it was good". Call them "Shy Tories" if you want, they're not evil or selfish monsters that hate the poor. Just people who are probably not that bothered, and thought New Labour was quite"trendy" too. They might be slightly bothered by immigration too. Then there are of course those that are ideologically driven by Conservative politics like @tony29 who eat babies, kick puppies, drive with full beams on at all times and steal from collection boxes.
  2. UKIP and their non-racist well informed supporters

    Maybe I'm being manipulated by the media, but this is the only UKIP policy I've heard about since the election was voted through parliament.
  3. UKIP and their non-racist well informed supporters

    The NHS and schools are chronically underfunded, inequality is rife, food bank usage is high, workers are being exploited etc etc... And UKIP want to talk about Burkas. Mmmmnn.

    I've been a bit worried that all this heading of bricks would effect his decision making but he's doing well. Huge again today.
  5. General Election 2017

    I think 4 extra days off a year is a pretty smart populist policy that may get some floating or 'they're all the same' voters to vote Labour. It's pretty hollow, but sod it, it's an excellent proposal, who wants less time off?
  6. Neil Taylor

    Huge improvement on Amavi. He's a busy defender, and his passing and movement isn't bad.
  7. Mile Jedinak

    For me, he flatters to decieve. Wins alot in the air and gives the back 4 good protection, but stiffles our attack massively and sometimes puts us under pressure with his useless passing ability. For all the problems he solves he creates almost as many. He's a central defender playing in midfield. He is Carlos Sanchez For me, we need to to and sign a really athletic or physical player to dominate the midfield. We've signed Lansbury and Hourihane to dominate the ball with their passing but so far they've not been able to. Not to say once they get to know each other they'll improve. I thought he had a mixed day today as he does more often than not. Wins everything in the air, pretty ropey on the ball.

    It's not flat out delusional. He's got to win the votes first of course, I'll admit I think a Labour win is unlikely but to make such hold predictions about landslides is misleading. Because who really knows? Brexit and Trump and all.
  9. Ugo Ehiogu

    Rest in Peace Ugo. What an excellent player, growing up I didn't understand the value of the centre back you don't really notice very much. I was a kid, so I was looking at Yorke or Saunders, or Taylor... But what I'd give for a CB like Ugo now. I didn't notice him because I just knew he'd do his job, every time. No drama. Such a tragedy. My condolences to his family and friends.

    I appreciate you're being mischievous but Jeremy Corbyn hadn't actually said anything about his son, so for the moment file this under 'made news stuff'.
  11. General Election 2017

    Why should this election be just about Brexit? I voted remain and I'm still smarting about the result. But Brexit is happening. We can have another referendum on it, but it'll achieve nothing. It's not an issue that will ever go away. The anti immigration feeling is too strong, a 'soft' Brexit will never be accepted. For me this should be less about what will happen in a Brexit negotiation, but more about a vision for the future of the country, with Brexit as a part of that. We can leave the EU single market and still properly fund the NHS for example.
  12. General Election 2017

    Have to say, I think Corbyn has nailed the election message. The people vs the establishment. It's socialist rhetoric and it's well timed in my opinion.
  13. General Election 2017

    I'm cautious of putting too much stock in the current polling after the last election.
  14. General Election 2017

    I agree, they'll forgive us Brexit. But not a privitised health service. I can't get my head around it, I thought the NHS was important to people.
  15. General Election 2017

    Is anyone watching the Confessions Of A Junior Doctor on channel 4? I dispair. How anyone can watch this and decide that the NHS is in the correct hands is beyond me. The NHS is my number 1 concern in a political sense and it breaks my heart to see people suffer when it is totally unnecessary. It's a political choice to underfund the NHS.
