I’m in shock!!

I had no idea that Andy Street, now ex West Midlands Mayor is Michael Fabricants partner.!!
Me too. I thought he was with someone else….

“Fabricant's blond hair has been the subject of much speculation, with some people suggesting not only does he wear a wig but said wig doubles up as his life partner, intellectual equal and best friend. He has stated that his hair is a personal matter.” BBE

Would now be a good time to suggest to Rishi that we need a government that is going to work to make everyone's lives better ? Not just the little group of racists, or the little group of anti Woke or the right wing papers and their " Opinion " writers...

let's make ordinary people's lives better by giving them rights, a voice, driveable roads, clean rivers and seas, a revamped NHS and, hope. Somehow most of Europe manages to do this, why not us ?

I understand the logic of why they aren't.

Labour know they're going to win the next election anyway if they stay on this course. They are trying to appeal to both the remain voting metropolitan liberals and the leave voting working classes simultaneously. Being too outspoken on policy risks alienating one or the other.

It's a sensible tactic though thoroughly uninspiring. Also it gives less options for the Tories and right wing media to weaponise against them.
So are (we) going on elect a labour government who have no policies, or a labour government who know that if (we) all knew what their true policies are then they would not be elected?

I didn't know most of Europe had an NHS. Tell me more.

I think (we) all saw the likelihood of a Labour Government increase today.

As for policies (we) will have to wait for the manifesto and (we) can weigh them up against the Tories.

You can Google the Public Health Service of any country? Or am I missing something?
