      Tory policies of greed over need promoted by the two candidates in the Tory leadership election will cause continued damage to Social liberalism in the UK. Current Tory policies of starving people into employment regardless of disability. Underfunding social care. Blocking justice to the poor by savage cuts to legal aid.These and many more far right policies have caused disharmony, misery and poverty to millions.

      Social liberalism in the sense that it bring social justice,protection and harmony to the minorities, poor and disadvantaged. Taken in that sense there is little doubt that Tory policies have caused damage to social liberalism and if the Tories get another 5 years the concept of social liberalism will be dead.

      May be Putin had a point.

      Apparently the Amazon rainforest is losing an area the size of a football pitch every second since Jair Bolsonaro got into power there.

      Absolute madness and the whole world will suffer the future impacts on the environment.

      But rather than complaining, these wealthy western nations need to actually engage and provide incentives to not be cutting down the rainforest, because where there’s money to be made someone will always do it and that’s what’s happening now with the deforestation there.

      Find it incredibly depressing about what way the world is going.

      What is depressing is the fact that the "wealthy nations" are involved directly or otherwise in destroying the rain forests and any efforts to halt the process is purely cosmetic.
      As an example if one of the multinational companies involved directly or otherwise in the destruction of the rain forest were a financial backer of the Tory party how much would that affect that party's determination to eradicate this environmental catastrophe?

      From the logging companies to the rulers of that country and all the Western governments involved there is a common factor - financial gain.

      Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely agree. Western nations think banning plastic straws will make a difference, whilst taking no action against the likes of the airline industry who still run the majority of their aircraft on inefficient jet engines. And why...because it will cost them money.

      It’s all only headed one way unfortunately it seems.

      Chuck in the rampant homophobia, sexism (those two witnessed at the last five football games I went to and a reason why I've stopped going) and I've had it with this country. It's too large a minority and far too vocal.

      We're a small island and we're making ourselves smaller.

      Not agreeing or otherwise with comments made about Brexiteers but do not dismiss the idea that opposing factions as in all confrontations, will do anything to discredit the opposition.
      Tories are infamous for the practice of planting miscreants to create a shitstorm from which they ultimately benefit.

      Well you may not agree, you can't dismiss the observations from multiple sources just because you don't like it.

      And why you've brought the Tories into this, it's waffle, pure waffle. Has nothing to do with them.

      Like the waffle about Tories in disguise voting for Corbyn, like the waffle about Tories joining the LibDems to rock the boat etc etc. They are political saboteurs/double agents and all the underhand political chicanery known to exist and some yet to be revealed.
      The waffle and plain lies projected as fact as a result of leaving the EU is astonishing, horror stories compliments of the establishment and of course the Tories.

      This leadership PM race should be the last of it's kind. If any party dumps it's leader mid term, then the law should be it triggers a General Election. Tory MP's might have serveral different motives for dumping May.Obviously most are Brexit related but still the practice stinks.Labour did it in 2007 when Blair resigned Brown became PM after an uncontested election.

      In this instance Tory members should not have the right or privilege to choose the next Prime Minister.It's a caricature of democracy. Having a loon like Johnson in the race makes it even more bizarre.

      Coming up to 50th anniversary of first moon landing.I'm not a "we never went to the moon" conspirator but I have one tiny question.On approach to the lunar surface Armstrong took control as the autopilot overshot the landing by 4 miles.He finally landed the craft with,it was said,less than 15 seconds of fuel left.

      My question is how did they then have enough fuel to blast off from the moon and redezvous with Collins in the mother ship?

      Does the landing episode have a Holywood Thriller scenario about it.

      Only half the LEM had to return, it was extremely light (walls made of layers of Mylar), no seats etc and the moon has only 1/6 gravity, and no air resistence, plus gravity drops off faster with distance because the moons mass is only just over 1% of Earths.

      Takes 3 days to get to the moon so they say, what’s taken them so long to get back there?..I find the landings suspect and a propaganda weapon against the Soviets who were the 1st to put a man in space..

      They'll be de-selected before that happens.

      That's what all the fuss is about; a lot of them are about to lose their jobs, and new candidates selected.
      Tom Watson included.
      His CLP are about to vote no confidence in him.

      That's why Chuka and the rest left, they were going to get the boot.

      on a positive note some great stuff on celebrating the 50 year anniversary of the Moon Landing. They were incredibly brave men who risked their lives throughout the 60's  they sat on top of that huge firework.

      Thanks for the info.Just learned that the decent engine is seperate to the ascent engine and both had independant fuel tanks. The decent fuel tank had only 30 seconds left and had Armstrong not found a place to land they would have aborted and switched to the ascent engine.

      You don't need to be Jewish or a Labour member to be in Jewish Labur Movement.

      It's basically an old orgnisation that was resurrected and hijacked by Blairites to use as a weapon against the leadership.

      The Boris camp think Corbyn is weak, basically because he's been demonised,and they might go for a smash & grab election exploiting Corbyn's percieved weak standing in the polls.

      As much as I support Corbyn the right wing press pack have demonised him out of contention.I fear he cannot win because of that. Could be sly arse Johnson could go for an Brexit extention on the back of calling an election. I wouldn't be surprised to see that scenario develop.

      Half head Johnson has painted himself into a corner with his "do or die no deal" by October play.Guaranteeing a recession. The early election/hit Corbyn plan might extract him out of a cock up of his own making.

      Corbyn was ahead in 5 out of 6 polls last week, by as much as 6 points.

      The only one he was behind in was yougov, run by a tory.
