    General Election 2019

    Good post. I'm off out in a minute for a bit of culture at The Royal Exchange in Manchester for the rest of the day. I'll have a think about your points.

    Yes but why ? You've no interest in the Labour Party apart from wanting it to stay out of office.

    Jack Straw's a right winger and always has been. What else did you expect him to say ? I remember a workmate of mine telling me he'd met a great bloke on holiday that was going to be standing as MP for Blackburn. This was back in the day before he was MP. My workmate was a real died in the wool Tory from way back. That told me all I needed to know about Jack Straw before he even opened his mouth. My mate said " If I lived in Blackburn I'd vote for him ". Enough said.

    Why are people like you bothering who leads the Labour Party ? I don't get it. You wouldn't vote for them if Jesus Christ was elected as Labour leader.

    I'm afraid you're wrong there. They're the Brexit Party in Tory shirts. Just how right wing they are we'll see soon enough.

    Anybody half decent in a Labour shirt would have won in 1997. The country as a whole was sick and tired of the Tories. They'd had more that enough. There comes a time in the life of a Government when no matter what they do they're history. It happened under the Tories with Major and under Labour with Callaghan and Brown.

    I agree with a lot of that. The Blair Government in particular had a massive mandate and a fair wind with the economy at that time to change the outlook for all the Labour voting areas like Blackburn or Rochdale where I live. Then they got distracted by other less important things. Unforgiveable. I expected more from Labour. I expect nothing from the Tories and that's exactly what Blackburn and Rochdale will get. Our race is run, they've had what they needed from these areas and now we no longer have much economic value to them.

    Only himself to blame matey. He took us into a totally unnecessary war to curry favour with Bush. It was all about Tony Blair. I knew he was a shyster just like I know Johnson is a shyster. History will treat him harshly and I will never forgive him for allowing the Tory Party back out of the grave.

    Brexit

    There was talk of forming a trading block with the old Commonwealth at the time. That ship has sailed decades ago.

    Brexit

    And some even listen to the answers as well.

    Brexit

    And me, I voted to come out then. More fool me.

    Brexit

    Whoever pays the piper calls the tune.

    General Election 2019

    If all these moaning Labour MP's who've just got voted out had have spent more time getting behind the leadership instead of spending most of their time back stabbing, having several votes of no confidence and trying to stage little coups they might still be in a job. Has that occurred to them ? I think not. The MP in question is a right wing member of " The Labour Friends Of Israel " so obviously she won't have an axe to grind will she ? The one good thing about this election is the number of right wing Labour MP's and ex MP's that have been fired. Are you reading this Tom Watson, Caro;ine Flint, George Mann, Chukka Umunna, Ruth Smeeth, Ian Austin etc, John Warburton etc. Off you pop to the dustbin of history. I'd no confidence In Jim Callaghan, Neil Kinnock, Tony Blair etc but I voted and agitated for all of them. Neither did I stab them in the back for my own personal gain. Speaking of Neil Kinnock, like most stopped clocks he was right now and again, for me his finest hour, still very relevant today. Just change the name. " If Margaret Thatcher is re-elected as Prime Minister on Thursday, I warn you, I warn you that you will have pain- when healing and relief depend upon payment. I warn you that you will have ignorance- when talents are untended and wits are wasted, when learning is a privilege and not a right. I warn you that you will have poverty- when pensions slip and benefits are whittled away by a government that won't pay in an economy that can't pay I warn you that you will be cold- when fuel charges are used as a tax system that the rich don't notice and the poor can't afford .... I warn you not to be ordinary, I warn you not to be young, I warn you not to fall ill and not to grow old " Well he was right about that. 36 years ago and not much has changed has it ? Regards Tyrone.
