How can the mathematically-challenged Abbott hate white people if she was JC's former lover. Last time I checked he was, um, white?

The publication of key financial performance data from the NHS in England will be delayed until after the election, the BBC understands. Regulator NHS Improvement had wanted to publish data on the scale of hospital deficits but was advised against it by the government.

Why on earth would they want to delay publication of figures on NHS deficits until after the election? It's beyond me.

Mmmm doesn't stop them giving 'good' news. Purdah seems to be being used as an excuse to 'bury bad news'.

They tried to do this with the diesel car announcement too. Thanks to the courts it was overturned, however it meant the Govt. had water down the clean air plan to make it meaningless.

Re: June 8th General Election

I see that Labour and defence don't add up either - here's the white van Baroness saying one thing and the Shadow Defence Secretary saying another:

Quote:
Shadow foreign secretary Emily Thornberry was "wrong" to suggest Labour might drop its commitment to the UK's nuclear deterrent, the party's defence spokesman has said.
Nia Griffith told BBC Newsnight it was "already settled" that Trident would remain if the party came into power.
Ms Thornberry had suggested support for the missile system could not be guaranteed following a defence review.
Conservative Bob Neill said Labour would put the UK's "security at risk".
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-39984070

Looks like Abbott's understanding of party 'unity' is about as sound as her grasp of basic maths. I wouldn't trust a party led by a someone who's been a member of CND since 1966 and served as vice chairman and vice president with our nuclear deterrent anyway because if he gets in power all bets are off.

Re: June 8th General Election

I am seriously considering not voting this year because all the parties are bollocks esp May as she wants to bring back fox hunting.

The fact that May is going to allow a free vote on fox hunting does not automatically mean she wants it to be brought back.

She is merely encompassing the request of many of both the conservative party and the countryside alliance by allowing a free vote.

The result could still be NO.

If you disagree with a vote on fox-hunting and think it's an important issue then you should vote for a party that doesn't have it in its manifesto. Don't mistake not voting in the election as a vote for the status quo.

It's his right to abstain but if you don't participate then you have remember you gave away your chance to affect any change and if laws are passed that you disagree with, you have only yourself to blame.

I look at it this way if I don't vote than I have no right to complain about the results and what the government of the day do that I strongly disagree with.

May is a little to the left of Thatcher. But I'm still voting for her.

I agree entirely, that's the reason I'll be voting in a general election for the first time (at 61).

For once there is a politician who I feel I can vote for and do the right thing for myself and this country.

Theresa May.
