Really??!!

Just the other day I heard Dianne Abbott on LBC's afternoon show with Shelagh Fogarty claiming that they'd just held a wonderful shadow cabinet meeting and the highlight was Tom Watson's motivational speech on the importance of unity within the party...

Re: June 8th General Election

In a move which may disappoint some on here, Theresa May has ruled committing to keeping the state pension’s “triple lock”. Jeremy Corbyn confirmed Labour would retain it. annually.http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk...-a7702721.html

Re: June 8th General Election

The triple lock is rubbish policy anyway. I am guessing with the state of the opposition and the scale of their impending victory they're confident enough to give themselves more leeway on the budget.

I think a lot of pensioners would forego the percentage increase if it meant those in public service, who have had pay freezes for years, would benefit; such is the altruism of our senior citizens. A double-lock would suffice anyway.

ludicrous policy; it meant one section of society wasn't 'all in it together' with the rest of us ! Also the chancellor, wisely, wants to be able to raise taxes, which he's going to have to since the debacle of the national insurance climb down. They sound confident ( too confident )

However the announcement on diesel cars has been postponed till after the election, wonder why ? 'Purdah' my backside !

ohh heck the partys full of them - lets hope there are no homophobes in the party that need sacking
Liberal Democrats
Tim Farron sacks Lib Dem candidate for 'offensive and antisemitic' remarks
Party leader bars former MP David Ward from standing in Bradford East because he is ‘unfit to represent the party’


The Liberal Democrats have barred the former Bradford East MP David Ward from standing again for the party, after Tim Farron said his comments about Jews had been “deeply offensive, wrong and antisemitic”.

Ward’s local party had chosen him to stand in Bradford East, the seat he held from 2010 until 2015 when he was ousted by Labour, but after criticism from Theresa May in the House of Commons and a meeting of senior Lib Dem officials, Farron said: “I believe in a politics that is open, tolerant and united. David Ward is unfit to represent the party and I have sacked him.”

A serious case of hypocrisy.
