  1. Good old Labour. Another zany scheme not costed. Why Labour's arguments to nationalise gas and electricity are highly dubious https://news.sky.com/story/sky-views-why-labours-arguments-to-nationalise-gas-and-electricity-are-highly-dubious-11721873 The shadow business secretary Rebecca Long-Bailey made a fool of herself on breakfast news yesterday. And I'm surprised nobody has talked about his £10 an hour minimum wage plan for under 18s. No wonder they want to lower the voting age to 16 with bribes like this.

    Private firms to take over probation work

    How could she have? She's never been in a position of power to spend / waste any money. And lets hope she never is.
  3. Boris will run rings around him!

    Have you tried Antix Linux? I've never seen such amazing boot speeds and operation on old kit.

    Thieving Goes Unpunished. Lack of Police.

    Labour said they would have also made big austerity cuts if they'd won in 2010 - and have prior experience of making big police cuts when they were in power: https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2001/apr/15/whitehall.westminsterandwhitehall But I'm sure Labour will put a bobby on every street corner when they're in power won't they?

    Jeremy Kyle Show, suspended after guest dies.

    Doubt it, its ITV. Mind you the other main channels aren't much better in their daytime programming with low-brow mind numbing rubbish.

    This is an interesting article, pre-Corbyn era: Why this obsession with Israel and the Palestinians? https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2010/jun/22/obsession-israel-palestinians-conflict I've never understood what seems to me to be a recent obsession of Labour and Palestine, especially all the Palestine flags waved at last year's Labour conference in Liverpool. Don't we have enough problems of our own in the UK to tackle? What about flying a few union jacks instead? Or has it just got more out of control because of Corbyn's poor leadership qualities? https://blogs.timesofisrael.com/corbyn-has-turned-his-party-into-a-new-plo-palestine-labour-organisation/

    R.I.P Doris Day

    Watched the wonderful "Pillow Talk" again last night in tribute.
  12. A good article here: Parliament needs to leave London and reconnect with the people https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/jul/17/brexit-britain-needs-mps-out-of-westminster-provinces-neglected

    I've had four OCZs in a suite of 25 machines fail about two years in. Luckily under warranty.

    MP's Expenses

    Well, Corbyn employed Laura Murray - daughter of Unite the union's chief of staff as a "political adviser" on £40,000 a year. She's now being sued for libel by Rachel Riley!

    Rat in the Garden

    Once the food source disappears it should go away.

    Clifton Park

    Boston Castle is another great park to visit, brilliant views (albeit it of Rotherham)
  18. Its not, because: 1) Farage isn't a BBC employee 2) Farage on makes for good viewing figures 3) He gets shouted down, mocked, ridiculed or humiliated anyway

    Back pain

    Could it be your bed? My back pain all but disappeared when I bought a decent orthopaedic mattress.

    Danny Baker? Racist or Misguided Fool?

    I found the picture amusing - its the kind of thing Have I Got News For You would show at the start or end of the show. Mind you, I find most animal pictures amusing, especially monkey ones: I couldn't see anything racist in it at all, though. Does that mean the problem is with me - I'm blind to obvious racism? When I think of Megan Markle, I think "American". Or is it a case of people getting offended over the slightest thing, which seems to be the case these days? I did notice that many saying it was racist to Danny on Twitter were white, and didn't explain why it was racist.

    Sheffield council reshuffle

    Not necessarily climate change, but the Greens did well on the Wirral because of the Labour councils plans to build on greenfield sites (with nice large council tax generating 4,5,6 bedroom houses on estates called things like "The Spinney" or "The Villas"), leaving huge areas of brownfield sites untouched.
  22. Maybe it was to celebrate the VE day anniversary?

    Princes Gardens Development S2

    There have been "gentrification backlashes" in some parts of the country. And it didn't work well here: Residents leave landmark Salford regeneration project after rise in crime and vandalism https://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/news/greater-manchester-news/residents-leave-landmark-salford-regeneration-13742443
  24. Can't see that going down well with the Tories, never mind anyone else.
