Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

Thanks Ian, nicely explained. We do our voting by post so that I don't have to growl at the activists sat at the doorway. I get on quite well with the canvassers, by the time they get to our house they are on their last legs so I get to do all the talking. 2017 the Labour man was so tired, ours bein...

I will take particular note to see if his polling number is presented at his polling place. I know that you can view the electoral register to see who is registered for voting but I thought the actual act of voting was secret. Ie: Mr X always turns up to vote, is this act available for scrutiny by ...

Re: POLITICS CORNER

It looks like Trump is losing support in his Republican party. Ultimately they will support him to the bitter end but try to distance themselves from his extremism. From the New York Times above. Mr. Trump campaigned for Mr. Rispone twice in the final two weeks of the race, warning Louisiana voters ...

There is inflation and inflation. It all depends where in the queue you stand. If we look at average figures ie: a total basket of goods and services that the average person would spend on then its probably true. So we are looking at an average wage of £470 per week. Once you drop below this thresho...

Nick Boles ex-Tory minister calling Corbyn a pharisee. Boles A strange choice of words, weren't the pharisees a Jewish sect? Just when a large chunk of the Jewish community is saying Corbyn is an anti Semite, here we have Nick Boles saying he is acting like a Jew. Confusing isn't it.

Spending plans are always open to interpretation, a typical example is if you borrow to create an asset are you in debt or...
