Electoral Calculus predicts that Labour will hold Hyndburn in the coming election.
I sincerely hope they are wrong....after all our current representative has done little or nothing for the area.
He won't be getting MY vote....I will vote anything but Labour.

Except that the House of Lords is NOT a proper job.
A proper job would entail actually DOING something rather than being paid for just turning up.
Remember that these old duffers(and I am an old duffer myself) have a fine life....they can get a taxi to the HoL paid for by us....they can have their fill of gin and tonics at subsidised rates.....and they can have a very good lunch....again subsidised by us.

Now, forgive me if I tell you that this is Most definitely......NOT work.
Wouldn't I like over £300 a DAY for snoozing on those benches.
Some folk do not have that kind of income for a week of hard graft....and NO perks.

thats the big difference, they are supporting themselves NOT there constituents, and sadly some are too dumb to see it.

Sorry, MH....thank you for the clarification.
My sense of humour seems to be missing at the moment.
I put it down somewhere and now have not a clue where it is!

Probably in the polling booth when you went to vote on the referendum.

I wonder if it will still be there when I go to vote this time.
I somehow doubt it.

Here’s some facts that you may find useful if any Labour Lackeys come calling at your door and starting spouting from their party script.

A scene also replicated in most towns across the rest of Britain - I wonder how many of these will also be voting here on the 12th ? ( times 26 to account for the other member states not having an election in their homelands))

He has also consistently made cardinal errors that someone holding high office should capably avoid BUT.... given the fact that all the other candidates in the constituency I have a vote in are not just remainers but rabid remainers it's a case of casting a vote for the pile of excrement that stinks the least. It is a sad choice but reluctantly I must vote tory for the first time ever.
