That makes any argument one-sided, but if that's how you like to run your arguments, at least now we know.

I mean, blaming the Conservatives for actions they had to take to save the economy from Labour's overspending is rather a good wheeze for those on the other side of the argument, isn't it?

l will criticise any other party which l have before quite a few times if you open your pretty blinkered mind and as for one sided arguments well you are pretty much the expert at that as you praise government policy after policy without any hint of criticism for any of their policies..

I have voted both Conservative and Labour previously, so not as 'one-sided' as you claim. I am not an apologist for the Conservatives, but they are the most credible party of all of them right now.

All I am saying is that all arguments should be in context.

l am not calling you this or that OB but just pointing out to you my thoughts on the governments policies but that does not mean l am happy with some of the oppositions policies either as remember all of us are individuals and each individual will have his own rational reasons where he or she puts their vote at the end of the day and they should not be lambasted for that.

So now what?

Looks like the DUP will vote against the government all the time but for confidence and supply motions ensuring they can't do anything but also we can't elect a new one.

Re: Government & Post Election Discussion

We are pretty much in uncharted waters to where we go from here as your guess is as good as mine as to what will happen in these coming weeks and months.
