The rioters whatever they stole deserved what they got.Riots cannot be tolerated in civilised society.

Who have stolen millions?They should be in jail.

Dont the labour party demonise big business?.                                 

Dont Labour have union sponsored MPs?

What we all want is a fair society full employment.But Thatcher put paid to the heavy industries coal steel refusing to subsidise.The unions invariably could not compromise and struck for pay rises that were unsustainable

The Puff from these politicians does not fill me with confidence.Except that the status quo seems the better bet.

A fair society does not mean that during a period of severe recession bordering on depression that the poor get absolutely stuffed while the wealthiest double their net value.  Guardian article linky

 

A fair society does not mean running down state services to the point that we're neglecting the desperate so that we can give businesses and high net worth individuals tax cuts.

 

A fair society does not produce an environment where some at the top of society can take far more while we cut services so much that one of the UK's fastest growing industries are food banks.

 

Full employment does not mean bullying people to take zero hours contracts or see their benefits cut and then refuse to pay benefits if the zero hours contract gives zero hours in a week.

Y'know, when trolling gets that pathetic it usually means a straight ban.  I'm not one to disappoint.

If the Union does break up after a Tory win at the General Election, it will be unambiguously Cameron's fault.  He it was who ratted on his promises almost as soon as the referendum result was in, thus angering many of those who voted  "no" and persuading them  they'd made a terrible mistake, and  that a vote for the SNP would be better than a vote for Labour.  And he it is who is using the SNP to scare wavering voters into voting Tory.  Cameron, as is usual with Tories is putting party self interest before that of the country, whilst hypocritically pretending to be pro Union.  TBH he makes me want to vomit.  I'd have said that the current Tory poster showing Alex Salmond picking someone's pocket was actionable!

I'm sure Cameron thinks that people have the attention span of newspaper front pages and will forget that he was saying all the pro-union stuff right to the day of the referendum then almost the day after was threatening to reduce the rights of Scottish MPs.

So, technically, it's a worse crisis than the retreat from Dunkirk.

 

Just think, main political parties, you have 35-40% of the people who won't vote at all.  Maybe you could have more success if you reached out to them rather than the falling number of people who make up your 15-30% of 60-65% ...

I saw one poll of Scottish voters that I now can't find that showed the "won't vote" or "don't know" preferences were at an all-time polling low.  The SNP have engaged the Scottish voters who would never vote for a party that won't tell them what they're doing or are ultra-negative, this includes more than a small percentage of "no" referendum voters.

 

All I know about the Tories based on their last week's worth of politicking is that Labour are further to the left than Michael Foot (that one made me laugh, more like further to the right than Thatcher) and the SNP are worthy of the same fear as the 1960s Soviets.  A mixture of Labour and the SNP will take us back to 1946 style poverty once all the big companies such as HSBC leave us (that was a well timed threat, wasn't it, nothing at all to do with the election)

 

All I know about Labour based on their last week's worth of politicking is that they want wavering Tories to vote for them, that they'll be a nicer version of the Tories (in other words, they'll kick you in the nuts then say sorry about it before kicking you again) and that the SNP are really bad people for having the temerity to take their voters without asking nicely, Scottish Labour voters should just keep voting Labour and be grateful.

 

Lib Dems are telling everyone not to vote for a party that'll prop up a government that can't get their own majority.  As someone living in an English constituency, I'll follow Mr Clegg's advice, I'm with Nick on this one.

Cleggie today on the Lib Dems dealing with a Labour/SNP coalition:  "I would never recommend to the Liberal Democrats that we help establish a government which is basically on a life support system.”

 

Erm...  Has someone told him what's been going on in Parliament since 2010?
