Conservatives had to take tough decisions and put the country back on track.Helped 3.6 million more people into work, cut taxes for hardworking families etc etc.I could go on and on....

Labour would undo everything that has been achieved.

This country is the most divided it has ever been in my lifetime and will take a generation to get back on track.

Your lot have been a shambles. 'Strong and stable' is f*cking laughable. You govern for yourselves and your party; not the country

You now have a Prime Minister looking to reverse the irresponsible cuts that his predecessors forced upon us and take credit for repairing the damage. The government debt continues to grow.

How anyone can *still* vote for the Tories is crazy. If only there was some decent opposition.

I understand your 'arguments' but you seem to constantly overlook the importance of honouring a democratic vote.
It also puzzles me how Remainers seem so obsessed with the short term and ignore the bigger picture.

Either they have a brain block about the wider issues or they are deliberately obtuse because they simply cannot stand down from their position for egotistical or party political reasons.

This is about the long term future, not the next year or five years or even ten.

With the greatest of respect I take a totally alternative viewpoint which I suspect is not a surprise to you!

I certainly cannot accept the claim that Conservatives have not governed for the country when since April 2017 we have cut Income Tax for 31 million with the result that an additional 1.3 million of the lowest paid taken out of having to pay tax at all.This is just one example.

Regards the "Cuts", such a policy was not done out of spite but tough decisions had to be taken to bring the public finances under control.Responsible Governments make tough decisions, irresponsible ones spend money like it is going out of fashion and bring the economy to it's knees - just ask Corbyn!

I have to go out now so will bid farewell.At least we have debated our polarised opinions without any rancour or vitriol.Have a good day and don't forget the umbrella!

Itís a similar story in Scotland regarding opposition. How many people could put a face to Richard Leonard or Jackson Carlaw let alone Willie Rennie. Ruth Davidson gained a bit of traction but now sheís gone itís hard to see past the SNP.

Bring back Ewen McTeagle:-

If you could see your way
To lending me sixpence
I could at least buy a newspaper.
Thatís not much to ask anyone'.

Yes, the Tory hell-hole that is painted by the left, yet people risk their lives to get to this country while passing through various EU Utopias.

You could have reduced your four paragraphs down to four words.

Paragraph one.

Moan

Paragraph two.

Moan

Paragraph three.

Moan

Paragraph four.

Moan.

Honestly, you sound like you have an arthritic hip and can't find your painkillers.

The 2 main parties have been woeful they are going to take big hits from lib dems and brexit party
People need to remember new Labour started to offer out Nhs contracts to the private sector first under Blair
Nhs for a population of 66 million and rising the economics are massive
Taxing the rich who probably pay private isnt the answer

With respect I have never concluded that framing someone in these terms is considered abusive.

Corbyn to my mind is a tyrant-backing, NATO-bashing marxist and his party propped up by the Lib Dems and SNP are the cast of no-hopers that have spent the last three years preventing Parlianment from getting anything done.

Whilst the EU have stayed firm all the way through and done their talking with the other 26 behind closed doors and with a united front. The way it should have been done here.

 


Bring back Brolin

I think perhaps that's because her tongue became so rough that she no longer needed to chew.

And the reason for that would be...oh, right. Welcome back!
