The U.K.'s Christmas Election

Post by tamada » November 25, 2019, 2:54 pm

That's all the election manifesto's out in the public domain so it's down to knocking on doors and who pedals their litany of lies and obfuscation the best. Is it me or does it seem that only Labour are seeing much more to this vote than just Brexit? Is there a Conservative assumption that the average Brit is happy with more-of-the-same Tory policies? The Lib Dems are still in the wilderness with their plan to rescind Article 50 and another referendum and after flipping and flopping on whether they should play the strategic voting game that Swinson, as a perpetual no-hoper says is necessary, it would seem that Farage has lamped onto uncontrolled immigration (again) to get his Brexit party's box checked.

Choices, choices...

Having looked at all the manidestos .. its pretty clear non of them stand a great deal.of Tams fact checking ..thsts a nice way tonsay they condist of 90% of total bullshit to get your vote .. the Labour 'contract to the people' is shameful.and the thought if the likes of Corbs .. Mcds , Abbit and Thirnberry running the country is terifying .
In dream.world would love to see the Brecit party take enuff seats to have some power in parlement .. alls heading fir a def tory victory n large majority ..
Jo Swinson is a total twart..and Sturgeon even worse ..so its GoGo Bojo

My opinion.

Hung parliament.

No Brexit.

But I am looking forward to hearing the new Speaker.

Oh if only we could tam ........... starting with BOJO (he likes dangling around on the end of ropes) and then the other 600 odd of them.
Free entry to Tower Hill for all OAP's and a seat with a clear view of the gallows.
Reckon the country might just stretch to an extra days public holiday for the festivities \:D/

I don't mean to intrude, I don't keep up with the UK politics, but here in the States money apparently grows on trees, so maybe your guys could get a hold of our guys and see how they're doing it.

The last thing we need is a Corbyn government.... another referendum... and what happens if the people vote out again ?
Another few years of dithering and the UK becomes an even bigger laughing stock if that's possible.
Same if it's a hung parliament...nothing happening again for years.
British people are sick of Brexit and it's time to move on.
Sadly BoJos plan is the only feasible option even if for credibility it's like Marco Silva being appointed manager of Liverpool.....
Just when I thought our chance had passed,you go and save the best for last.

Ah, apparently that large brick building built down below near the flyover was going to be Scunthorpe United's club shop in Udon.
Planners made proviso for it 2 years ago when a local businessman assured them Scunny would be a Premier League outfit by then.
It is now going to be used as a refuge for the homeless instead. ;)

One thing that no one has thought about is voter turn out ..being a December election ..run up to Christmas.etc and more so the weather .. snow n freezing temps are forecast which will.obviously kerp.people at home rather than casting their vote .

Btw zid .. i heard the local businessman involved in the building is now claiming ownership of the said building and wants to.turn it into a drive thru Iron shirt shop such is the demand .. I stand by my prediction SUFC will.be in the EPL.in the next 10 yrs ..

You heard it here first !! and im.sober .....ish

"Read all abaht it!"

Forecast of biggest Tory majority since 1997... or to put that in perspective, that's when they surrendered 18 years of rule to Bliar & Co.

Just noticed that two years on, none of the parties mention positive and quick action on getting the private sector to replace the combustible cladding that caused so many deaths at Grenfell tower.

"Barking, Crewe, Clapton, Worcester Park and now Bolton: 2019 has seen at least five major fires in blocks of flats. ...More than two years since the horrific Grenfell Tower fire, which resulted in the deaths of 72 people, why are fires like this so common? Simply put, the government’s action on fire safety has been too slow. Figures released last week show that of the 436 high-rise buildings identified as having the same cladding as Grenfell, where flames spread up the side of the building and encased it in fire, 318 still have not had it removed. These are overwhelmingly blocks with private-sector owners – but the government has been, frankly, unwilling to force them to make people’s homes safe."

The same way you guys do it. We only try to pay the interest on the loans every year. When we spend so much that we cannot even pay back the interest on our loans we take out further loans over extended periods. If you and I did that your possessions would have been grabbed by the Bank. Somehow cannot see the Banks taking back America (who could they sell it too).
