  1. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/topics/cjnwl8q4ggwt/iran I think we should be concerned. Especially while Donald Trump is President. Not to mention the similar unpredictable nature of our own Prime Minister,
  2. That's nice. We're going to Midnight Mass later. After we've been to the Pub 😉 Here's my Christmas song choice. Happy Christmas everyone ☺
  3. Merry Christmas Compilation - Michael McIntyre.
  4. No I wouldn't want Socialists having a run at it, having a presence within is fine as all voices are needed, but certainly not dominating the party. That said, I would be very wary of those minority power hungry militant Trotskyist types the party has behind the scenes reappearing to create more chaos. As to those Labour MP losses, its sad to see decent hard working dedicated politicians losing their seats, even some of those from other parties.
  5. To a large extent I quite agree. I've never objected to Labour being a broad church party as they have always been, but lately the radical left seem to have gained far too much power and influence over the leadership. That's why I'm not entirely convinced Brexit was the only reason Labour lost. I voted for Labour but I did so half-heartedly, almost voted for the Lib Dems. As I've said before the country needs a strong challenging opposition party with an inspiring moderate centrist leader, one that is capable of winning an election. So something needs to change because a lot of the public must feel as I do, that they are living in a one party state.
  6. 😀 Very funny. I love the Scots and visiting Scotland, but I always make sure I'm on my best behaviour to ensure a warm welcome and to avoid being called a "Sassenach".
  7. You can admire someone for their principles without necessarily agreeing with their position on every issue. I also admire Ken Clarke and some other politicians from political parties I don't vote for.
  8. Though I didn't always agree with his father's left wing views l admired his father too, but Hilary is more of a centrist and is a remainer too, which his father wouldn't have been.
  9. Comment following the election result from Hilary Benn, who is one of my favourite politicians. https://www-yorkshireeveningpost-co-uk.cdn.ampproject.org/v/s/www.yorkshireeveningpost.co.uk/news/politics/very-bad-night-labour-admits-hilary-benn-he-keeps-leeds-central-1340250?amp_js_v=a2&amp_gsa=1&amp&usqp=mq331AQCKAE%3D#aoh=15762707410258&referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com&amp_tf=From %1%24s&ampshare=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.yorkshireeveningpost.co.uk%2Fnews%2Fpolitics%2Fvery-bad-night-labour-admits-hilary-benn-he-keeps-leeds-central-1340250
  10. I'm not arguing any such thing. so please don't insinuate I'm excusing racism He may, or may not be a racist, but watever the case it hasn't stopped people who are descended from other races supporting him. My reference to his own heritage was because I find it difficult to understand why a person who has stated how proud they are of their mixed heritage should be so keen on us leaving the EU because whether we like it or not, Brexit is going to play a big part in determining who wins this election.
  11. I wouldn't want to read a book Boris had written because I'd expect it to be full of lies. However, I can remember watching him on the BBC’s Who Do You Think You Are programme which revealed his interesting mixed heritage. He has a Turkish Muslim great grandfather on his father's side and also some Russian ancestry, and on his mother's side some Jewish ancestry. Yet he is sometimes accused of being a racist, but that's his own fault for making those stupid tactless remarks that he seems to think are humorous and will make him popular.
  12. Oh Happy Day-The Edwin Hawkins Singers.
  13. Well I do care. I heard about them interfering in the French elections in the past with donations involved, and I don't understand why they find it so necessary. The more I hear about their government meddling in other countries political affairs the more I realise how important it is that we remain in the European Union.
