    Local elections 2 May 2019

    By independent I mean no affiliated to any political party. Who know, that is what is so good about democracy. See first line in post. Straying away from a political party line can be a good thing, just look whats happening in Westminster for a clue as to how the party machine normally works. Others in the same party are expected to vote the same and follow the party line. We have a main government that is elected to rule the country according to their political taste, and then have a local councils of any political persuasion who are not empowered to anything to change those policies but try and yet try and run their council according to their party politics. That is only usually the case where other political party candidates are members, now how would that work if all were independent. But that then goes against the idea that we elect the person and not the party. Its up to the candidate to put forward a compelling reason on why you should vote for them and not just because they belong to a political party. Yes I know, what I am saying is that they all should be independent and hold no political affiliation with any political party. I would think that those that are for instance Labour councillors are also members of the Labour party.

    I agree and to be honest I think all candidates for local elections should be independent. Its time the antiquated system of party political local government is ended.

    Supertram Rail Replacement 2019

    I notice that the rails that were replaced at the Manor Top/ Elmtree curve are getting corrugated already and will need grinding down sometime in the near future.

    Unfortunately spoiling the ballot paper also achieves nothing and just goes on a pile of spoilt ballot papers that are just counted as spoilt. The best thing to do if you are unhappy with the candidates is to vote for the outsider and deny the others your vote. You could always have a go yourself but that puts you up against those voters that will always vote Labour no matter what.
  5. You could try The Sunday Times. December 19 2018 "The UK is the 5th largest economy in the world at present, with a GDP of $2.18 trillion, according to the IMF."

    If you are prepared to pop round I can let you have a small tube for nowt, just refilled it when selling my old CPU but the buyer had already got some. PM me if needed.
  7. I have thought about it long enough thanks...
  8. But you are comparing individual people and contracts with a Socialist led organisation, the EU, that has equality at its roots and should treat all equally so its not comparable. Leaving the EU is not a single decision by a person but based on a collective majority decision by the people.
  9. Using that logic? it has always been that way even before brexit, and also assumes that the person with a tenner also loses that tenner. Doesn't really mean anything as it depends on why that person has lost a tenner in the first place.
  10. As I have stated previously, in a Socialist lead and created organisation should any member get special status? Shouldn't they all be given the same status and conditions?
  11. Not being sniffy, dismissive yes. Inflation has had its toll but that is not much at all and it is not such a bad thing. If you read both articles then you can see that the People's Vote one is just based on warping the statistics to suit, and it also states that the manufacturers have also absorbed most increased costs. It then goes on to say that despite that the extra cost then gets divided by 27 million households and yet it was absorbed by the manufacturers. Only one of them can be right!
  12. No it's just that most ordinary families I know drink instant. If ordinary families that are feeling the pinch that much then they wouldn't go spending extra on wine and beer in restaurants either.
  13. Ordinary families that use filter coffee and drink wine in a pub or restaurant eh! Its the usual guff from the Peoples Vote Campaign. Quote from above: "Companies appear to have borne the brunt of the price increases..." But despite that the £15billion gets divide between the 27 million households. Now compare the above with this.. notice the major differences? https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-47224913
  14. If you do get a hub then get a powered one so any device plugged in will then use that and not the internal power, some also have dedicated charging ports. Something like this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/BOLWEO-Transfer-Charging-Aluminum-Bus-Powered/dp/B06XGQ44CW/ref=sr_1_17?keywords=powered+usb+hub&qid=1555605195&s=gateway&sr=8-17
  15. As above and try setting the bios to defaults. But.. instead of an expensive repair why not use a USB hub on one of the working ports. Not as tidy but you could use a right angle adaptor/cable to tidy it up a bit.
