Re: General Election

Well we don't seem to be having Brexit anytime soon because of a comprehensive failure of those in power to deliver on the promises that Leave campaigned on. *fixed Amounts to the same thing. The failure to deliver is down to a lack of respect for a democratic result. I can't think of another vote ...

Re: General Election

Well we don't seem to be having Brexit anytime soon because of the aversion to democracy that many have suddenly developed, and that's led to the stalling in investment. It will change as soon as we finally get a decision to move on with. However, that isn't the reason why the likes of Thomas Cook a...

Re: General Election

Is that a trick question? Ideally there'd be no job vacancies and no unemployment. In practice, we're never going to get that but it seems like the UK is approaching it's level of full employment for the short term. It's a sad inevitability that some businesses are not economically viable, and canno...

Re: General Election

BBC article on this highlights Mr Neil’s flagrant cherrypicking. :shrug: Not really sure what you mean? In what warped world is it "cherrypicking" to quote unemployment and wage growth figures when they're announced? It's literally what that article has as the headline. :? Unemployment dropped by 2...

Re: General Election

Depends what you want to get out of the debate - you have already said you've made your mind up, therefore you perceive anyone presenting other opinions as being "difficult". You're projecting on to me your own intransigence. I'm not the one so blinkered that I'm arguing any money donated from Russi...

Re: General Election

:lol: How casually racist of you... Not read the Times report as you need to pay, but the three names I've seen mentioned as donors are all British citizens - and the implication is that all 9 are. Oddly enough, it's not a given that their actions are to meet the nefarious aims of their country of b...

Re: General Election

Well has Dominic Grieve not stated that normal procedure is 10 working days and the report was handed over to N10 on 17th October. That timeline has unsurprisingly been disputed. Exactly, and I've no idea who to believe. I've heard enough of Grieve over the last few years to know he's very selectiv...

Re: General Election

Given the further reports over the weekend about Russian funding and Johnson blocking publication of the report. I'm fascinated to know what your cons were in relation to it being published prior to the election. Especially given that it is the primary issue he is framing his campaign around. The q...
