Remember Corbyn saying that under 18 year old workers would receive £10 per hour which was popular amongst younger workers .?
so what happens they reintroduce the anti -Semitism in the labour party to divert attention away from this popular policy2 AnswersLaw & Ethics1 year ago
Talk about turkeys voting for Christmas to vote for Theresa May is doing so.
we have the NHS asking doctors to come to the UK for £18,000 and schools on short time and asking parents for money for books and benefit cuts and the Brexit negotiations maybe leading to a no deal
yet May has the nerve to ask Labour voters to vote for her
although it might work because at work they say we are not voting for Corbyn who are working 12 hour shifts and night shifts in a dead end job not knowing if we will be in work still next week.
yes my late farther said the working class are their own worse enemy.2 AnswersElections2 years ago
After these disgraceful attacks on Corbyn it will be amazing if labour win any councillors.
we know that Labour mps who claim to be labour want rid of corbyn to get back to business as usual of been a pale conservative party but if the succeed the people of the UK will lose the best chance ever of having a better society to live in and been more fair and equal.
And if anti semitic activity is taking place it needs to be sorted out but the conservatives just love it so they can use it has a weapon against corbyn.7 AnswersOther - News & Events3 years ago

give it back to the directors and no doubt at a fraction of the bailout cost.
here we have the free market working and private enterprise working?
no I do not think so.
where are the losses coming from and we need a look at the books and a look at contracts awarded since it became in trouble.
There might be little chance of the HS2 getting g built or not without the government pouring billions of pounds into the contracts meaning no doubt a greater cost to us all1 AnswerOther - Politics & Government3 years ago
right when Thatcher won in 1979 she had the benefit of North Sea oil revenue just coming on tap but she chose to use it to pay the unemployed and write off debt so that they could then give away our industries etc.
had we had the revenue from oil used to modernise our railways and water ,etc we could have had the best in the world.
it is a total disgrace and when they say we cannot take these back I say can we not and we are going to and if you bought shares (which was a con anyway with this popular capitalism that was just to make people accept privatisation) then sorry but you have lost your money.?

WHY Unlike the Labour Party who believe in public pay freeze been ended and cutting student loan debt.?
the Conservative's are been dragged kicking and screaming into ending the public sector pay freeze and cutting student loan debt.
They said during the general election campaign that we could not afford this but now they have a new saying to replace the strong economy phrase they used to say and now say we have had severn years of a growing economy so can afford to do this.
They fool no one.
maybe they are going to risk a general election next year by neutalizing labours attacks on them and their record.4 AnswersOther - News & Events3 years ago
This is a NHS hospital so if the government cannot fund it why should the Gards?
And anyway they are setting up a foundation so other parents in the same situation can fight for their children.10 AnswersCurrent Events3 years ago
so labour need to keep getting their manifesto across to people and offer a alternative to the Conservative's attitude of This is it take it or leave it there is no alternative and behave like a Government in waiting.
The trouble is that while the conservatives say public sector pay cap cannot be scrapped and student's should be grateful for been £50.000 in debt we can see that the money can be found.
Anyway people might just say that we just cannot afford to vote conservative and must take a chance on Jeremy Corbyn and labour.1 AnswerPolitics3 years ago
