      I know this is a left-wing twitter account, but after Windrush, and the fact that the Tories have said they would deport you, why then would you vote for them, and then be shocked that you have been deported?

      Sad thing is he'll probably vote for him again.

      As I said in the post brexit thread, the majority of the British public are thick as f**k.

      Ok fair enough I don't like the BBC but just had a quick glance at their archives in relation to Anti- semitism in Labour. Yes it was a serious  problem and I hate any form of discrimination. But the BBC really went to town on it and in fact I stopped counting when I got to 150 articles on Anti-semitism in Labour, on the BBC website.

      Mostly on the run up to the Election but hardly any since the election...mmm... Obviously this is no exhaustive study or anything - just an observation.

      On Islamophobia and Anti-semitism in the Tory party, about 20 articles. Most of them put up in response to critics saying the BBC only target Labour.

      Ballots open today for the Donkey Derby (Labour Leadership Election)

      A very unenthusiastic tick in the Long-Bailey box will probably be my contribution

      Looks grim to say the least. Starmer looks a bit nervy. Long-Bailey is percieved to be to close to Corbyn. Labour has to step away from Corbyn and McDonnell,they are tainted. Labour will have to rely on Johnson making a balls of trade talks and deals with the US.

      Labour look crippled in the short, medium and long term.

      Corbyn & McDonnell offered hope & change for the better, Bailey & Burgon offer same policies without the false accusation of the Anti Semitism.. Starmer running on a EU policy which saw Labour lose the GE & one which Strmer backed & continues to do so..

      2010-2015:
      Flood defence budget cut by 14%, staff by 20%

      2016:
      Tories reject millions from EU for flooding.

      Since 2015:
      Funding for defences down by further £64m.

      If only there was some way of knowing why we’re so unprepared for the floods.

      No matter how much money had been spent on flood defences this weather has been truly exceptional with over a solid month of strong damaging winds coupled to torrential rain I cant remember a worse February .What the Gov should be doing is under writing Flood Insurance as its clearly not the fault of householders who have lived flood free for decades.

      I live on a tidal River near its mouth so the Water comes in and goes out no problem for us really. However if you live in chester or Bangor on Dee its a different story. two weeks ago we had a 29 ft tide that with the wind behind it made more like a 33ft tide a 4ft swell but our 33ft a few days later with the same gale force wind made less and more like a 30ft tide its been a really weird set of tides for the last month and added to which the rain water flooding into the river has meant it is holding far more water for longer on each tide. Looking out into the Atlantic we have just had weather system after weather system ploughing on through it is exceptional

      Obviously the weather has been grim but Tory cuts to Council Government funding is down by nearly 50% since 2010, that along with cuts to the Environment agency budget is going to have a disastrous effect. People won't get any help from the Tories, I doubt Labour would underwrite flood insurance either.

      No policy can prevent flooding but putting very little money into flood defences is a policy that can't be defended. Problem is the right wing media don't tell people the truth and when they have to say something negative about Tory policy, they temper it with a load of Tory hogwash so the truth is always flushed down the plughole.

      saying the weather is grim is a bit like a monty python sketch when he loses his arm and declares it a scratch. I live next to a river I see it daily how it behaves and the damage it can cause this is f**k all to do with Politicians get your self onto a decent weather App and see what is coming in from the Atlantic and has been now for over a month. Oh and its pissing down again and 70mph winds due shortly.

      True or not, are you really using Breitbart as a verified and trusted source of news? This is the website that once ran a story about a migrant gang smuggling people on jet skis, accompanied by a photo of... Lukas Podolski on a jet ski.
         

      No f**king sh*te.That should be on the banned list Just under the sun and fox news.right-wing cu*ts.Actually surprised anyone would use it as a source on here.

      These commentators make me laugh. Preston, like Dan Hodges and the rest of the self-important blue tick arseholes were sniggering at every Corbyn proposal a few months back and now they're screaming we implement a lot of his ideas.

      The idea of nationalised broadband doesn't seem so silly now, with 100s of thousands set to be working remotely
