We have better choices in Labour and the Liberals, but like I have said before, a combination of hostile media and a largely selfish ill informed electorate will not vote for them. May is actually more dangerous than Thatcher(something I thought I'd never have to say). The only thing I don't blame her for is Brexit(though she changed her mind on that pretty sharpish) - that is that errant hedge-born skainsmate Cameron's legacy. Watched her and her hubby on the One show the other night... and Christ what a creepy pair. Depressing times for UK politics.
May isn't yet in the Thatcher/Cameron league for robbing the country blind. The selling of utilities that were paid for by our fathers and grandfathers' taxes is tantamount to theft. Royal Mail was sold for two egg sandwiches and a cup of tea in effect. The ruse of making shares available to Joe Public relied on the high probability that people would cash in as soon as a profit was available. The shares then and up in the hands of the rich and various financial institutions.

It's not fashionable to speak of Tony Blair in a kindly manner, but Iraq notwithstanding, history may view him a bit more favourably than is currently the case. Although I couldn't abide the man myself.

Agree about Blair. But as you have rightly pointed out - greed has got us where we are. My generation and the one before have betrayed this generation on the altar of Mamon.

Even the media have picked up on the fact that the word Conservative has all but vanished from the battle bus, placards etc. It's the cult of the personality all over again. Stalin lives !

Well, one good thing about this election, although she may well be returned in whatever hellhole she "represents", she will probably not be seen anymore on QT or suchlike programmes.

She's been an MP since 1987, so that would average out at just over £3K a year.

Does that qualify her as a "champagne socialist" in your book ?

They are far from crap policies, especially when compared to the Tory manifesto of pribbling idle-headed giglet up the NHS, pribbling idle-headed giglet up the poor and needy, increase the wealth of the high earners and kill foxes. Yeah, those are some righteous policies.
It's not the despair that will kill you, it's the hope.

She should donate these fees to feed the hungry and to charities set up to belp get 14 year old girls from Hull off heroin. Bet shes grabbed herself a free council flat of some local authority on maggie's right to buy scheme. Bloody grabbing socialist fat cat.

Grabbing hands, grab all they can, all for themselves, after all, its a competitive world!
