And with that, suddenly partygate is out of the news.

Meanwhile the ECHR is an integral part of the Good Friday Agreement, the Trade and Cooperation Agreement with the EU and the devolution agreements with Scotland and Wales.
They'll all just have to go then.

it's probably poor reporting (but the maths could support the report as written, even if it were not).

what is a bit of the "more" is project keir's somewhat selective focus. added to boris not answering the question he was asked.

you can compare apples with oranges.

Easy way for people with any sense of what is right and wrong to counter this sort of bullshit, and that's to start referring to the ECHR as 'Churchill's ECHR'. A couple of weeks of that being thrown about the airwaves and the outrage will calm down.

I would have given it serious consideration. but the point was (quite clearly) that they are all shit. so it doesn't matter whether you vote labour, tory, snp or waste your vote. it's the standard of debate that's shit.

It's not so much that they're all shit, they aren't, just a lot of them.

The point is that people who make themselves slaves to a particular political side are frankly nuts.

There is little, if any, meaningful difference between the policies of Boris and Starmer.


In fact, there has been little in the way of divergence from the consensus since Thatcher departed; Major, Blair, Brown, Cameron, May, Boris...it's all the same.

Look what happened when a genuine change was on the ballot (Corbyn) that would have upended the appearance of choice by delivering a genuine non-establishment manifesto.

His own side piled in on him to make sure he wasn't elected.

They may all seem shit if you have plenty of income, savings, use private education, and have private health care - at the other end of society, they certainly aren't.

10 years of Conservative Governments have wreaked havoc on so many people. We have teachers and nurses having to rely on food banks. Are you not ashamed?

no, I'm not ashamed. well, I am, but not for the reason you are suggesting.

I am not responsible for governing the country. if I were, things would be very different. you wouldn't have dared make that last comment, for starters.

as for the (not new, but still) slur about not really being affected, as I'm not a pov, it is baseless. I do not vote in my own interests. nor do a lot of poor people.

Even if they are all shit, I'd still rather have the ones in charge who are less in the pockets of big business and tend to what to make things better for the majority rather than maintain the privileged position of a tiny minority.

At least then when they manage to do something they are trying to do it will be beneficial for a larger number of people.

or maybe the evidence of the President of the RCN to the Health Select Committee?

Quote:
Dr Chaffer:
We cannot get away from the pay issue. I am quite sure that you have seen the pretty comprehensive evidence that we gave the pay review body on the scale of the problem. We have nurses who are unable to pay their rent, unable to afford petrol to get to work and unable to get a mortgage. We have spoken to a number of members who cannot get a mortgage. They rely on food banks. Clearly, pay is absolutely critical. Wecannot move away from that.
