    I've asked you this a few times and never got an answer.

    Given that this funding has been guaranteed to continue regardless of the outcome of Brexit by the UK government, how do you think this effects these two men's impartiality?

    I get that mate, but if you used to vote Labour you surely also believe in social justice? In the welfare state, protection of the poor, in trade unions and the national health service? Because all those things are things that people like Farage stand against.

    The lie they've told the working class that they're like them is one of the greatest cons in UK history, and it's worries me how many believe it.

    Hardly the first time, i mean Thatcher was a maniac, Blair a war criminal, Brown a bumbling idiot, Cameron a posh idiot and May was just, well May. Boris has gone from gobby backbencher to now actually having to do a days work and deliver something, it will be hilarious watching that fat arse clown drowning over the next few months. He'll be out just in time for i'm a Celebrity....

    I expect they're scared of their grants being cut compared to what The EU threw at them.

    What is really hilarious is the joke that UK politics has become. Not that Boris is a bumbling oaf but that he is considered a better prospect as leader than anyone else and let's face it, with the likes of Corbyn and Abbott labour is also up sh#t creek, and as for Farage.......

    I hate the term 'Brexit'. If the term 'Bojo' becomes popular I will hate that even more. Please, stop.

    Not since the Conservative austerity cuts we don't. Though that's about to become a damn slight worse not better with Johnson in power as he's about to make tax cuts that benefit people like me and hurt the elderly, disabled and poor.

    I mean how people can't grasp that a hard border isn't possible baffles me. You're talking about the Good Friday Agreement being abolished, which opens up a huge can of worms. So what, you hand back Northern Ireland to the Republic, playing right into the EU's hands and also making the British Empire even weaker. Therefore, you know, actually doing the complete opposite of what people want this hard GB border to do. Mind boggling how people can't see this. That's before you have Scotland to deal with, they'll see that happening and think we can get out too. So you'll end up with two countries instead of four, yet the hard border is supposed to be the solution to everything to make a stronger UK?

    Peoples eyes will be opened in the next few months and not in a good way. Boris can no longer say 'we are leaving' and that's it. Time to do an actual days work with planning.

    Not in my opinion, many have worked and payed NI and Taxes all their lives and they should not have to choose between eat or heat in Winter, who can forget Gordon Brown giving OAPs £0.80 and boasting about the rise? :no:

    How does a tax cut without spending cuts hurt 'the elderly, disabled and poor'? :laugh: Yeah lets not try to help the middle class out at all who are the primary drivers of the economy and have been slowly eroded away. Boris is going to do the same dumb shit that Trump has done and run huge deficits imo.

    So when we end up selling off the NHS due to getting into bed with Trump and have to have health insurance (which is what Farage wants), then people have to sell their homes to pay their medical bill which in turn raises the homeless numbers. That's a great resolution to the issues you want addressing.

    I do want the same as you, probably a bit more socialist as I'd make trains, etc public too. The way to do that would be soft Brexit and a Labour government, it would be by staying as far from the US as possible and not give out tax cuts to those that can afford it.

    I'm not going to talk to you about economics, your view is basic and extremist at best, and your cult like obsession with a model that has simply never worked makes it impossible to reason with you.

    Because it was a ponzie scheme that too many dumb ****s chose to vote for that's now running out of cash and not working anymore because of the ****ed demographics.
