That wouldn't be a bad thing. Reckon UKIP would increase their vote dramatically if the two major parties don't wake up to what the bulk of the electorate want. Be interesting to see what Cameron will do over the next few months, moreso as he seems to be losing popularity with the female voters.

We'll keep asking this, until you supply a satisfactory answer, regarding this contradiction.


Wynonie, what's that song the Ultras belt out when you've just scored, and retook the lead?

Something about it being all quiet in the other end, and them only bothering to sing when they're winning?

Re: Did Graham Jones do the right thing?

I've never mentioned this before(although I was nearly sure) how would former MP Ken Hargreaves have voted with regards to this referendum, would he have represented the wishes of the electorate or would he have toed the party line.

Well I have just had a conversation with Ken and asked what he would have done in similar circumstances, without a shadow of a doubt he would have voted FOR the referendum, mind you I would have expected that anyway, as Ken was only ever interested in the people of Hyndburn and not his own political career, or party dogma, its just a pity others don't take the same stance

On this issue, when it comes to what's democratically the right thing to do, you're either for the people, or you're against them.

Especially so, when at 70% nationally, the vastly greater majority of people, want the right to vote in an E.U. referendum.

Oh yes, that's right, it's on the tip of my tongue. Graham and Bernard are both regulars at the Crown, maybe they can remind us?

Re: Did Graham Jones do the right thing?

Spoke to three lifelong Labour voters this afternoon.

Well, more accurately, three ex-Labour voters.

Utterly furious at what's happened, and how out of touch they feel the party now are, when it comes to answering the needs of the ordinary men, and women of Britain.

A lost vote here.

A lost vote there.

Soon mounts up.

Though I don't suppose that matters to some.

If you're both deaf, and blind, to the public feeling of the majority of Hyndburn residents.

Re: Did Graham Jones do the right thing?

Just a guess, but I've got a strange feeling that unless there's a satisfactory explanation, as to why Graham publicy states one thing, then does another, that there's enough life in this thread to rival the longevity of 'Living off the fat of the land', or the 'Britcliffe Monthly' calendar thread.

Nah, I hate waste, and excess.

Why have two, when one will work perfectly well?

Have a heart, just think how Graham would feel being tagged onto the tail ends of a Britcliffe Thread

No, I was saying I have a feeling this thread might have a simlarly long and active life as those others I mentioned.

Certainly up to three and a half years.

Nae bother.
