Re: Current Events/News

Eth, despite the leanings of that article, there are a huge amount of civil liberties being eroded during this period. As stated by Berrow in the above article, 50 laws with criminal penalties without any vote in Parliament. Whatever you think about politics, this crisis and so on, that is worrying...

Re: General Election

Right, so other party's voters aren't Starmar's territory.... but other party's voters are Johnson's territory? What are you talking about? The whole point is that voters aren't fixed. For Labour to win an election, they need to take voters from other parties, by appealing to people who voted for a...

Re: General Election

Lib Dem voters are not Keir Starmer's territory though. Labour voters are. The working class are the core of the centre left, I've no idea how you can say otherwise, they are the ones the party exists for. And Boris Johnson's Conservatives just took a load of those votes (it's not just about Brexit,...

Re: General Election

Are you trying to insinuate that Boris Johnson is encroaching on the centre left's territory? :? I'm not insinuating it. He's all about spend spend spend in a very un-Conservative way. It was there in the manifesto pledges, there in the budget, and it's central to how he's approaching Covid-19. He'...

Re: General Election

Of course given you only ever refer to Labour as "they", it won't have any bearing on your politics! :D I refer to all political parties as 'they', given I'm not and never will be a member of any of them... You referred to them as "they" in the post I quoted, presumably for the same reason? I think...

Re: Current Events/News

All politicians of every colour lie as a matter of course, but what exactly would be Johnson's motivation here? Being incapacitated is a political weakness. Drawing attention to the need for people to follow the measures in place would be a good thing. The amount of collusion needed from people who ...

Re: General Election

Sir Keir Starmar wins Labour leadership contest. Pretty sure they could have quartered the time for the contest without much difference, but there we go. Probably ushers in a little more of a credible opposition to government. I dunno. I think so long as they avoided Long-Bailey, they'd have gained...

Re: 2019/2020 season

What do you mean, my first involvement was personal? I pointed out you'd missed the obvious sarcasm in someone else's comment and you shouldn't have chucked an insult at them. That's not a personal dig, it's about something incorrect and rude that you wrote. I had hoped to prompt an apology to Darth...

Re: 2019/2020 season

You can look forward to them then. As for the comparison to flu: perhaps you should have read what I was saying instead of assuming? But keep on being antagonistic and trying to have a fight. I'm going to log out now. What on earth is antagonising you? You disputed it would be hundreds of thousands...
