I think Brexit is front and center for this election.

Until that is sorted everything else is a side issue. Even if we don't necessarily like that.

so P-22 ( I think)

the "big debate" so Corbyn wants to tie us up and keep the Brexit impasse running on and on and BoJo the clown offered nowt but their "headline" soundbites and didn't deny lyeing to parliament

after that I don't think I would vote for either of them and the local Lib Dem candidate is a well known anti taxi campaigner :roll:

I hate to say it but for the first time ever I think I might well not vote

Had to turn it off after 10 mins because the presenter wanted to be the star, and gauging a point by the sound of the response from the audience also does my head it.

Get them to debate by all means, but don't keep interrupting them.

I have always said that these TV debates are a waste of time. No one ever comes out of one without being criticised for something.

so labour thinks raising £80 billion a year in taxes to pay for loads of giveaways to a section of the community is a good policy

And what about the Billions it will cost to renationalise utilities and railways how will that be funded ?

Oh and of course all private home owners not being allowed to leave their houses to their children yeah that will go down well

Labour manifesto published. The new longest suicide note in history?

“We will reform taxi and private hire services, including a review of Licencing authority jurisdictions, setting national minimum standards of safety and accessibility and updating regulations to keep pace with technological change and to close loopholes to ensure a level playing field.”

Direct quote from the manifesto. Happy? You won’t be.

So what did you make of the LIB DEMS manifesto £50 billion extra in taxes for staying in the EU ?

Personally nothing.

Absolutely pointless read as nothing in their manifesto will ever be implemented by them.

I’d re read your question if I were you. But the libdem manifesto is a sideshow. The next government will be either Corbyn or Johnson.
