David/Bob there 2 politicians other than Jeremy than that have me wondering how they got where they are Tiny Tim and Diane Abbot. The latter has a self destruct button I'm sure ,on the interviews with the media her knowledge of what Labour are about is appalling,most of her numbers are in cloud cuckoo land and who ever briefs her needs shooting . Now Tiny Tim just won't except the desision of the voters ,like a female in Scotland,yes democracy only works when politicians get their own way ,like feck

Bob R, Farron's tactics are actually quite clever. He knows his party is floundering badly and adopting any of the conventional PRO Brexit stances would not gain them anything. After all that's what Labour (at least officially) and the Tories are doing. So; where to garnish votes from? Well the 'Remoaners' of course. About 48% of the electorate voted remain, I suspect at least one third to a half of that cohort of voters are now committed leavers but that still leaves over 20% of the electorate vulnerable to a party which is still beating the remain or re-referendum drum. His sole chance of gaining votes is likely to be from that cabal of the 'we wuz robbed' brigade. Time will tell. I personally hope the Lib/Dems are obliterated, I think Clegg, Cable et al are a blot on the political landscape with their 'sell your souls to the devil for power' ideologies. They are still trying to forge a temporary alliance to destroy TM's chance of gaining a sound working majority.

Now we have the manifesto from the Lib Dems ,offering another referendum on the result of Brexit I suppose they are after the 48% who didn't vote for leaving. The problem is still who will vote for this party who did the biggest clanger on their manifesto and when they actually got power ( school/education fees ) dropping like the proverbial hot potato. Having these programs for government and not having them financed that makes sense is a NO NO . We all know that the western world ,possibly except Germany , are in deep debt from the bank collapses of 2008 ,many countries like Greece,Spain,Portugal and Ireland will not clear this debt till the end of this century. Now we have 2 major British political parties wanting to put Britain into further debt to pay for lah lah land policies on top of Brexit mmmmmm further to that we have 2 amateurs in power ( France/USA) now the next year or two will be interesting.

Tim Farron - what a mealy mouthed excuse for a politician ! Can you ever imagine him in a position of power?  Like the rest of his wishy washy party, he'll propose ANYTHING that he thinks will secure him a vote or two, pandering now to the younger  voter who wants legalised cannabis and fee free tuition ! As regards wanting a 2nd Referendum on Brexit, he really is grasping at straws there, even the Remoaners are accepting the democratic wish of the electorate & just want us to get on with it . I too hope they are obliterated  on June 8th.  John (JKW)
