Ok the unions got out of hand, however, for those who wore tank tops and wedges, were you aware that many firefighters at the time were on benefits (pre 78)? Obviously after that glass ceiling was broken, 10% at the time, other unions then reassessed what they were worth and perhaps this drove people to think about their worth to the whole of society.

We now have a society that is asking questions of our politicians about the worth of essential services like the NHS which BoJo used on the battle bus and is now being placed slightly down the list as we Lurch towards the election.

What people?

Sane people who are able to consider the alternatives and don't just vote Labour because their family always have!

Its certainly going to be interesting in Lancashire, a large number of Labour councillors in constituencies that voted for Brexit in a big way, let's hope the voters kick them out, but will they?

Happy to say the BP aren't running in my area so not to split the vote, but areas like Preston have been labour since the Second world war but voted for Brexit, plus Blackburn Burnley etc.

Let battle commence.

Areas round here won't vote Tories,  probably never have, but they might well vote BP

Heard a cracker today,  SNP nicola sturgeon will scrap Trident if she gets in???? That's going to go well at Faslane, but she'll apparently get everyone a similar skilled job, that's got to be thousands not voting for her straight off.

Surely she could request it is moved from Scottish soil, but she wouldn't have the clout to scrap the system and its replacement.

She has set it out as one of her red lines to do a formal deal with Labour if a hung parliament.  Bin Trident, cancel Brexit and give approval for Scottish IndyRef2 in 2020.  She’s a demanding sort.......

Thing thing is I could see Corbyn saying yes to everything for a chance to get into no 10, if he doesn’t get it over the line this time then it is a busted flush for him and his cabal of Trot’ nutters.

At least she's saying what she will do, but that's a lot of people out of work,  never mind all the other people and businesses nearby who will pretty much rely on Faslane and the money it brings.

I hope it blows up in their face, but will it? I've no idea if Scotland wants another Ref?
