Remind me who the majority of the members voted for in the leadership election?
azuliblancos, 18/04/2017 at 17:46


Difference between them and the slightly larger electorate though. Ignoring my constituency as that is Bercow and the question is how many thousands will the Tory majority be, on the doorstep I have Mk North and MK South. I question how many would be persuaded to switch to Labour on the back of Corbyn being leader. It is these areas that are key and were high on the hit list but Not sure if allegiance will change.

These were roughly 50 50 Brexit areas so it is how folk vote that intrigues me.

But I agree I don't think this election is as clear cut as the pollsters possibly think because it is how those marginal battlegrounds pan out and what the marginal voters therein actually do

It's not all about Brexit/Europe MK. A factor in London, yes (and I don't include Scotland as it's absolutely beyond the reach to all 3 mainstream parties now anyway) and here and there but this is about 3 things; enabling continued economic growth, the finer detail of the Brexit deal, and the fact that Labours front bench aren't just clueless but actually repugnant to the majority. Amazed anybody is even discussing this, she's going to annihilate Labour without breaking a sweat!

For first time in my life I'm considering voting conservative, so hopeless is Labour and untrustworthy the Lib Dems, especially Clegg.

I would hope it is about other stuff rather than Brexit but it has been called on that mandate or allegedly so hence I am presuming the focus will be on that issue.

Or fuck the economy with Labour in charge meaning there ain't any money to do the good deeds.

I think the fact the country has borrowed shitloads even with the Tories in power proves how fucker the country was. But let's get tough on the really rich and big corporates because it's not like they can just get up and shift to other places.

Laugh

It never fails to make me wonder why on earth people think a Labour government is good for schools, the NHS, the welfare state etc.. Their track record in this area is as useless as any other party.

Politicians the world over, whether they are capitalist, communist or any other breed, have always looked after themselves, thats why they get into politics in the first place. From the Soviet block to the EU, from the White House to Tiananmen Square - the are all the same. 

Its now or never

Vote is Economy V vote for NHS for me.

As for the poor, they're the same as the middle class all on benefits, they're just called tax credits to ease the embarrassment of the middle class.

Is it really ?

I was talking to a client that works in the City for a French company and he says whilst there may be some re-grouping the reality is there isn't sufficient talent in other countries and folk like him that has a salary package that I go yikes at simply want to stay in this country. The lure of Frankfurt is not that compelling.

There is no viable alternative for the activities of financial institutions. They're going nowhere,
