|How to improve UK Politics!
Have you heard the joke...
It seems to me that we have a real problem in the UK trusting our politicians because of the minority(?) of them who are 'economic with the truth'.
With the rapid advance in technology these days it occurs
to me that we could keep our politicians honest by fitting each seat in
the House of Commons debating chamber with a
Seriously...Can we please, please have honest politics

Tried to find an email address for TB. Tried "newlabour.co.uk".
Was re-directed. Guess where! To the Conservative Party's web site.
Couldn't believe it! Tony, your boys and girls have been
slow. Newlabour.co.uk = Conservativeparty.co.uk Bizarre...

|Re: Local Elections - TV
People in local government are usually clowns - end of story.
Mind you,the political broadcasts provide a very good opportunity to
make yourself a cup of tea.They tend to last quite long,which is
handy if you've got a slow kettle.
Is it just me who groans and leaves the room when I see a party
political broadcast coming on the telly? We all know the score,it
goes like this:"...blah blah blah,this government is doing nothing
for XYZ,we at the Hypocrisy Party would reverse all this and do ABC
for the people of the United Kingdom,blah blah diddy blah blah
In short,what's the point?
|The end is nigh
The Political Landscape in this Country seldom changes much. There are great swathes of the population that will always vote Labour, and many who will always vote Tory. ....
The people who really decide who comes to power are those in the middle who actually take note of what each of the parties says and does. ..... They are ignoring this growing band of people at their peril.

I agree with you totally.
If they don’t look out, they’ll be just a flush in the pan.

|drink at work:
isn't it time that the MPs in the house of commons were brought into
line with the rest of the country regarding the consumption of
alcohol at work. most companies have it written in contracts of
employment for random breath testing of employees, with the
possibility of instant dismissal. why does this not apply to people
in parliament who are making important decisions on our behalf. i
find it extremely annoying that i am helping pay these people
exorbitant salaries to mouth off in a drunken stupour or sit and
sleep it off. this is double standards and needs rectifying.

The countryside is massive. How come there's a housing shortage when there's so many empty fields? How come there's homeless people when there's so much land out there. There is, really, loads of it. Went on a plane to Scotland once and you could see loads of it out the window.

|Re: Cardboard Boots
Dear Serious Person Your unwarranted attack on Mr Foster is unjustified, as the British army marches on it's cardboard boots, I believe he has a valid point, for your information they cost £12.50 each and are manufactured by the same people who produce Compo Rations, there being no difference in taste! So in times of extreme desperation our boy's are always guaranteed two square meals a day!

|An Insult to all Londoners:
We have Hobsons (not Dobsons) choice for Mayor of London. In the pink corner: Dobbin-Old Dobbo, a time serving jobsworth of low intelligence and even lower integrity, zero credibility, a proven failure at the Health service who was ordered to run for London mayorby the Fuhrer to save face after being booted out of his minesterial job for gross incompetence. A man without a single policy or idea for London unless of course doing nothing and spending nothing contitutes a policy. vs in the blue corner Nookie Norris (a man who came second to Geoffrey Archer for Gods sake) What is the point in turning out to vote. Tony Blair just wants puppets, we are about as democratic as the Vichy regime under Petain. Integrity, honesty, decency and ethics mean nothing to Tony Blair who is only interested in his own power and ego. Welcome to the new National Socialist party.

My God, you're absolutely right.................I resign!

......Tony has discredited his position as leader of the LABOUR PARTY and offered the people of London a tame Hamster.
