If you respect the queen after the interview this weekend, does that make you a pedo sympathiser?

But I think he would come after high and middle earners too who are already paying a good sack. He is a terrorist sympathiser, allowed anti senators to spread. Has no respect for the queen.. hates trump (as do I) but can’t see him being able to hold his nose and have a working relationship. He is more of a heckler and campaigner than a credible statesman or someone who you could take seriously on the world stage.

Lol stoney that’s ridiculous. Half of the shit you just said you basically agreed with him while disagreeing with him so I don’t see how that makes him a bad guy? Plus doesn’t respect the Queen. Why the fuck is that an issue. Why are specifically a lot of English so enamoured by the queen and the royal family? They don’t do anything for you or your day to day life and are only there out of blood. It’s time to abolish the monarchy and open up their castles and palaces to the general public as museums. Let them fade away and be done with it. Bring Britain into the modern world fully and also change parliament to a Proportional Representation democracy and end this 2 party state shite.

Amazed how many Jezza fanboys there are here. He will lose and then must step aside so a credible candidate can take the reigns and the party can appeal to a more mainstream audience. How labour has not managed to land any punches against the weakest divided opposition is astonishing.

I’m no labour fan boy. I’m Scottish and a nationalist. I just think it’s ridiculous you English seem to vote for the tories when they couldn’t give a flying fuck about you.

^^That's the main thing. But if you don't want the Tories winning in your seat, you may well need to vote Labour.

Lib Dems are Tory lite. No matter how much they shout their differences, their voting records say different.

I I’m a staunch remainer but completely think the Lib Dem auto revoke policy is undemcratic. Who would you vote for if you were a virtue signalling metropolitan elite ?

Voting labour is the only way to get the chance of a second referendum to then vote remain. Voting Lib Dems only splits the non Tory vote and therefore will allow Johnson in and a Tory majority. Swinson is a fraud and I think history will look very badly on the Lib Dems for their stance in this election.

I wouldn’t say she is a fraud. I’d say her revoke no matter what is I’ll advised and misjudged. I presume you want a break up of the union too ?

Lib Dems lost all credibility when they fucked themselves to get into the coalition with the Tories then rolled over on their biggest manifesto pledges (Uni Fees). Coincidentally Jo Swinson voted in favour of increasing the fees. The only vote of mine she'd get is in the wet tee shirt competiton
