Your solution though is take wealth off richest and spread it around, for equal measure, everyone has same wealth, doesnít matter if people stay at home or earn a living, although they donít need to because staying at home pays same. Breakdown of public services happens overnight. Thatís the Labour way.

I think the public services are way worse now than they were in 2010.

NHS waiting lists have just been increasing:

And it would get worse under a socialist regime, why should doctors & nurses work when no one else wants to. Living in an Equal shared wealth society, is a disaster.

I think limiting it to the MPs only would be quicker and you can argue they have a wider mandate given they represent a lot more people. They are the MPs the wider public elected into Government, they can claim to therefore have more right to choose who the PM is than a bunch of randoms.
Here's the problem as I see it.

The MPs bet according to their best chances of advancement.

As you can see, when it comes down to the final two, the nodding dogs are split roughly 50/50 according to their bet and thus their hopes for office,

Those nodding dogs, mostly, are the ones who have run the country so badly under both May and Johnson.

The wider membership are not impressed with Sunak for reason already discussed; they're not impressed with Truss, particularly because she came promoted a barmy idea to cut the wages of regional people notwithstanding the levelling up plan. She then said she's honest, will tell the truth and then weasel worded her answers to the hard questions that Kay Burley put to her.

I'm so disappointed that the outsiders never made it to the cut. I might even have to vote for Truss so that Sunak doesn't slide in under ther "none of the above" trap.

Pretty certain winter of discontent happened under Labour, bin staff strikes, funeral workers striking, dead bodies piling up on street, and power going off at certain times of the day and staying off until next day. All thanks to the union strikes, this was public services on its knees.

Itís not about closing the gap, itís about Labour leaning for a socialist state, thatís the gap closed and absolutely nobody aiming to work for a living, because they wonít need to as equal wealth means the stay home folk get same as those in work.

I think strikes tend to occur with flat economies and inflation and a government that is struggling to appear competent. Pretty much as we are right now with train strikes, bus strikes and now an eight-day strike at the country's largest container port!

Equal wealth is not a Labour Party policy. Like most parties they will talk about equality of opportunity.

It didn't get worse between 97-10 though. This current Labour Party, like New Labour, aren't really socialists.

Yes they are. Services were dire under Labour during those periods, I disagree.

It look Labour a while but waiting lists, and especially quick treatment for cancer, improved quite a bit under Labour: https://www.kingsfund.org.uk/project.../waiting-times



It was Labour who introduced the two-week target for cancer referrals.

Obviously, they need to do it faster than 7 years in Government if they ever get re-elected - not least because I don't think they'll be given the 12 years and counted the Tories get as the waiting lists get longer and longer.

How long should the Tories get to turn it around? This isn't just COVID. The waiting lists had been getting longer and longer for a decade before.

Rishi humiliated as script for supporters exposed highlighting 'stage managed' campaign

The former Chancellor has been ridiculed after sending out a suggested script to his supporters on how to endorse him on social media. It includes preferred stock phrases for Tory members to use when making their case for Mr Sunak to be Prime Minister.

that loud bang was him shooting himself in the other foot
