Based on the overwhelming evidence, every day, the scholars coming over on small boats are not , in the main, asylum seekers.

It’s a strange left wing/ Labour Party that cheers on jobs being taken away from young British men.

Well as long as men dressed as women can use women’s spaces, that’s what Labour stands for now. Sensible politics for sensible people.

I lived in Perth for 20 years (4-6 months a year). Good Mediterranean-style life, ok, quality life with no problems, swimming pool etc but boring. My god boring...I even watched Aussie rules, I went to WACA....I could not take more than 6 months... I went to the Ocean looking up (dreaming) Europe and Surrey...

It could be worse you could be the Conservative Party that facilitated it.

No wonder you're advising people to leave the country, shame they've lost freedom of movement to loads of countries though, still imagine how much worse it'd be under labour

To your point - yes. There was no money when Labour left office in 2010 and there will be no money when/if Labour take over after the GE. Fail-Fail is all we can expect.

I grant that the NHS was in better shape in 2010 so far as patient experience went. God knows where the Tories (my party) have pissed our taxes away; or perhaps we know where but not why.

One of the biggest "crimes" of successive governments is kicking nuclear power down the road until, when we really need it, it's not there.

By all means, wish to punish the Tories but open your eyes and don't expect any better from Labour and even less from the mad Liberals.

Also - STOP THE BOATS. Time to post notices in Calais that the RN/Border Force will push boats back into French Waters. £4bn annually is a national emergency which should be declared so we can unilaterally act. Other legal stes will be necessary including abandoning certain Human Rights accessions and replacing them with sensible laws of our own that distinguish between "the Boats" and genuine maritime traffic. Also, having left certain international treaties, Rwanda becomes real. Do this quickly. Nah - won't happen.

To say there's no money left at a particular time makes no sense. We've had a national debt for the UK for all of this century and all of the last century. We've just borrowed money. Currently our debt's £2.58 trillion.

Merely repeating what the Labour bod’s note said in 2010 and what nearly £3tn means today.

It was clearly a joke as anyone who understood economics (as Brown did) would know that we had a debt back then too.

Re: The Chronicles of Rishi

There's never no money left - there's only the choice to not raise money through taxation or not borrow it.

Before someone jumps in to say 'ah but it has to be repaid' then please find me the political party with the plan to get our debt down to £0.

Hint: there isn't one.

Tory MP Nadine Dorries quits Commons seat

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-66630308

Quote:
Nadine Dorries has resigned her Commons seat, two months after promising to quit "with immediate effect".

She launched a blistering attack on Rishi Sunak in her resignation statement, saying "history will not judge you kindly".

The Mid Bedfordshire MP first announced her intention to resign on 14 June.

She accused the prime minister of abandoning "the fundamental principles of Conservatism".
In Encyclopaedia Britannica, under "Lack of Self Awareness", it says "see Nadine Dorries"…

Re: The Chronicles of Rishi


You see (one of) my point(s) about Sunak - he can't stop the boats, it would seem. So that's 20% of his big 5 screwed.

He can't cut debt if the economy isn't growing - which it ain't by more than the merest smidgeon. Another 20% gone.

He'll pretend that the economy is growing (even by a smidgeon) - but nobody will believe him (a) because it isn't tangible and won't be unless we make wind turbines here (e.g.) tomorrow and (b) the BoE are keeping interest rates high. Another 20% blown.

He'll pretend that patient waiting lists are coming down. But that cannot be so while the population is growing (with immigrants) and medical staff are either striking or leaving the country. -20% again.

Thing is, he knows that he is failing but he's rich and it won't affect him too seriously (other than no longer sitting at the world top table).

And for the Labour fans, don't expect those idiots to do any better. They have to grow the energy industry, ensure none of the oil/gas goes elsewhere (this can be achieved by having golden shares and borrowing to fund this). They have to seed fund all other energy initiatives; they must abandon all stupid rewilding projects that remove arable land from farmers so that we can be more food self-sufficient. They must reform the OFGEM system so that the price cap is not the actual price - lots of reforms like that. They need to make the economy grow substantially so that the NHS can function properly.

But Labour isn't that clever. We are well stuffed. Jeez.

With his City background, Sunak was more economically literate than many in his Party. Yet why did he advocate Brexit? I think you may have answered this conundrum.
