  1. Where I live we have a local 'independent' party, it is effectively a protest vote against the main partys. It does well in the city elections, but it has not got the depth of strength to elect an MP. You could not make it up, but the electorate fall for it, because there is no alternative choice. We do have it good, yet people are negative.
  2. When delivering my election leaflets a couple of people have said that they won't be voting for either of the main partys.

    Is gender inequality in sentencing ok?

    I am sure people should be tried on the evidence of the crime. Men are more violent than women, perhaps that is why there is a difference?

    LGBT issues and morality

    I dont think a person should lose their job, just because they are stupid.

    LGBT issues and morality

    Should rugby players lose their jobs, for not saying the right thing? "It was made clear to him that any social media posts or commentary that is in any way disrespectful to people because of their sexuality will result in disciplinary action." The committed Christian last week posted a banner on his Instagram account that read: "Drunks, homosexuals, adulterers, liars, fornicators, thieves, atheists and idolators - Hell awaits you." Hell is a fictitious place !!! https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugby-union/47932231
  6. Just like Brexit, does anyone know what it is? A managed no deal is surely doing things like managing the queues and lessening them by not inspecting or applying tariffs until such a time as the rate of tariffs are agreed. How long will it take to agree on the tariffs if we haven't been able to agree in 3 years?

    So withholding her address details would make zero difference. I have got the electoral roll for my own ward, with names and addresses on, so I could get to know where anyone lives.

    So should do we bring in more censorship, or do we bring those carrying out such offences to trail? Back to Brexit, if our politicians are so out of touch, should we bring in more rules to allow them to be even more out of touch? It seems most of the Labour candidates are mostly keeping their addresses private, whilst myself and the local independent party are proud to display our details.

    There were MPs killed every few years in the 80s, Joe Cox was the first MP killing in 25 years, perhaps we are over-reacting?

    I am not sure, left-wing Labour seems more vitriolic in their attitude, that causes antagonism against them; but not at the parish level.

    I know that we have had more knife crime in the media, but even that is only as high as it was 10 ish years ago. Are we really living in a less safe country? Gays are no longer in 'the closet' and we have laws against discrimination; so that would imply its safer now.

    I went to a meeting for candidates this morning, I was surprised to be told that it was a criminal offence not to submit a record of your spending. Rather overkill when I and everyone else will probably spend less than £200 The main issue at the meeting was candidates disclosing/withholding their address, apparently, no one needs to know where their councillor lives, because it's not safe for them. My address will be on the ballot paper, but around 50% seem to want to withhold it.

    Its a parish council election, so 400/500 votes will be enough, the electorate is 4532, the turnout will be around 30%, each voter gets 5 votes.

    May local elections

    I thought that this thread was about the local elections, not immigration.

    At least you tried, reality is often what people have to deal with, despite many believing in an idealistic world. I am sure people will complain about councillors getting perks, real or otherwise.
