And the usual regular denials from the old reliables will start just after that if they have not already started.

Yet another Labour hypocrite who says one thing and does another:

... and people actually vote for this?

I recall Harriet Harman was caught up in similar hypocrisy. They are full of bollocks.

Re: Government & Post Election Discussion

Having the front to condemn grammar/private schools whilst sending your own kids to them is a Labour speciality.

They whine on about nepotism too. I wonder who Corbyn's son is working for and how he got that job...

These people are every bit as self serving as any of the Tory fat cats they spend their lives attacking. They're hypocrites to boot.

That well known Labour lady of the people Baroness Scotland's also been in the news again relating to a long list of complaints she listed with IPSO claiming unfair reporting, lies, blah, blah blah in relation to the refurbishment of her state funded mansion and other things. Sadly for her IPSO didn't seem to agree...

I have some sympathy with your view, but you state it every time, deflecting from (and by association, almost defending) the action being discussed, and basically inferring that whatever someone did wrong, it doesn't matter, because someone else also did something wrong...

How would you feel if someone threw a brick through your window, and when you went to remonstrate with them, they replied with the justification that previously someone else had put a brick through their window?

Re: Government & Post Election Discussion

l am not defending anybody as how could frankly anybody defend the awful politicians we sadly have in this country currently whether they are the incumbent's or the opposition as a bit of balance is sadly lacking in some of the current affair threads and l am just stating the very honest point that they are both as bad as each other something which some on here from both sides politically sadly with their rose tinted glasses on don't want to see or hear.
