And some bankers will go south of the river "at this time of night".

Exactly and as posted before if you earn your bosses a lot of money you deserve a decent bonus and lots of these people earn a hell of a profit for their employers.
Itís like Ďcapitalismí but some want socialism where the wealth is shared or they may be a tad jealous of other peoples success and standing.

On all the main decisions that have caused the cost of living crises (covid and Ukraine) Labour have backed the governmental decisions with the only difference being that they would have gone harder on them. I've been in a minority who stood against all of those economic decisions.

I don't have a party to vote for.....for a significant number of people in this country there is taxation without representation.

Tories got a good spanking last night from what was clearly tactical voting. (Labour lost their deposit in Tiverton, Lib-Dems lost their deposit in Wakefield)

This points towards a 'Progressive' Alliance but the massive question is, can that actually win an election?

Suspect that it would have to be informal but would probably require a pledge from Labour on the EU that would be difficult for it to make.

Interesting times ahead.

Possibly but it has to get elected first. And whilst on the face of it, the notion of a Lib-Lab coalition looks all hunky-dory, the reality is that it has to get through an election first.

Which given the pro-EU sentiment of the Libs, and a significant amount of Labours activist base, means Brexit comes into the mix again along with the refugee/migration issue which is potentially all going to merge into one over the ECHR.


These are shockingly bad results from the Tories, no shadow of a doubt about that with Tiverton in particular sending shock waves but they are by-elections and perhaps not the best guide to how a GE might pan out.

Yes, and brexit, both are the same bar a few tweeks, but this lot have fcuked us up for years, so might as well give someone, anyone else a go, doubt anyone will recover the economy in our life, but thats no reason not to kick this lot out!

The writing is on the wall for BJ. It's going to be a long and drawn out political death, giving Boris time to destroy incriminating evidence and Carrie time to asset-strip furnishings from No.10

and who will he bring down with him ?

the only writing on the wall about you I've seen was in a Chichester public toilet where the graffiti read,..."BJ's for £1, call 0898 777 ---"
