Re: General Election called

You have hit the nail on the head Exile.
The politicians want us to depend on them...dependent folk are less and less likely to think for themselves, be responsible for themselves.
It gives politicians an element of control.
I want to support myself, to be independent of benefits....and don't anyone come back with the riposte that if I claim my state pension, then this is a benefit. It is not.
Benefits are not taxed. I pay tax on my pension because during my working life I paid voluntarily into an independent fund to ensure that during my twilight years I could be financially solvent.
I planned my retirement and made provision for it.
This is how I was brought up.
You can have whatever you want, but it has to be paid for(surely that is the first rule of financial solvency). If you can't pay, then you have to save a bit more until you can pay for it.

Like you, I can forgo my Winter Fuel payment...I will buy myself a few extra jumpers from one of the charity shops, I will move about more and if it gets really cold(like Canadian cold)
I will go to bed and wrap myself in the duvet.
It is a trade off I am willing to make to get out of the EU.

Re: General Election called

I've seen it all now when it comes to canvassing for votes.
In Todmorden yesterday a labour supporter was in the Golden Lion offering a free pint to people who had not registered to vote to go in and register. I suppose she had the relevant forms and all she needed was their NI number, name and address.
I don't suppose for one minute she was telling them that labour should be their first choice.

I suppose (never having heard of this kind of bribe before) that so long as the person doesn't insist that folk sign for one party, it could be called a public service?

However I do feel sorry for folk that had been responsible and had already signed up to vote, missing out on a free pint!!!! I'd have sleepless nights.

Re: General Election called

in preparation for the election our MP has a new facebook page

i dont know why because deleting all records and postings from june 22nd to 13th july 2016 has removed all the hissy fits and name calling of the fine folk of hyndburn who voted to leave the EU

boy oh boy does he not think very much of us leave voters

it went beyond calling us thick and the %95 farce


if i was wanting to get re elected in an area that voted in the vast majority to leave the EU i woulda deleted all them posts as well

to his credit he dosnt like corbyn at all either but the catch is that a vote for him is a vote for corbyn

id hate to be someone in a position that also hates corbyn but wants to vote for Mr Jones

fortunately i dont have this worry i voted leave so can not give a Remainer my vote

Re: General Election called

a post from our MP popped up on facbook and he wants all children to get free school meals and suggests that it could be funded by higher earners paid taxes

forgive me but it does seem by the time the higher earner taxes have paid for everything promised by corbyn plus been used as a source for every other thing that needs paying for that labour Mps want to promise us to get elected i cant help but think the people paying all this extra tax will be bankrupt within a year

Labours answer to who will pay to everything is tax the higher earners more

at what point will they stop it wont be worth been a manager under labour as after tax you will be getting paid less than the floor sweeper

Re: General Election called

and that is, in your opinion, a bad thing?
From your tone it seems that you think it is.
Or is it just because it is a vote catcher?
My opinion, for what it is worth, is that parents have a responsibility to ensure their children get breakfast BEFORE leaving for school.
Why should the schools be responsible for doling out breakfast?
And what kind of breakfast will it be?
Probably cereal and milk.
It won't be a boiled egg and soldiers.

but labour are the ones that keep on adding to the list of promises with no explanation of where the money is going to come from to pay for all these wonderful hings they want to give everyone for free other than tax the rich more

theres only so much you can tax someone before they either dont see any point in having a good job or leave the country

Re: General Election called

The people tha Labour want to tax are those who would be welcomed by other countries who would treat them better.
Not only would they take the money and run, but they might take jobs with them.
