    The Brexit Thread

    If it was scripted from CCHQ it would be even less coherent than it usually is.

    I don’t necessarily disagree with your views about FPTP but I think you are blaming it unfairly for the position we are now in, a lot of this mess is due to poor politicians and not the electoral system. FPTP has provided many moderate governments in my lifetime to the extent that it was often hard to put a fag paper between the policies of the two main players. A rightish Tory party does not mean that the opposition needs to be equally as extreme. That’s is a consequence of how Labour has changed as a party and who now controls it, rather than FPTP.

    I don’t accept that, if there was an electable centrist party it would perform very well imo.

    He was always going to get the student vote, do you know what they plan to do about existing student debt, if they are writing that off as well it will broaden the appeal to a wide age group. As for the pensions, I suspect older people will have more sense than to fall for this, what good is a pension when inflation is in double figures. Some on here believe that Brexit will be a mill stone around the necks of our children, this lot would sink them.As for myself, he has missed a trick, if he had promised free pasties twice a week, delivered, I would have been bought.

    Don’t you agree Herman? Don’t you think that this was a great opportunity for a centre left party to sweep in to power?

    Nails it for me"The British economy is not broken. It has proven remarkably resilient in the face of Brexit uncertainty. Labour’s plans would exponentially increase the risks to the economy. A responsible centre-left programme to restore fairness and opportunity, to rebuild public services, and preserve private sector incentives, was there for the taking. Mr Corbyn has missed an open goal. "

    https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/brexit-eu-railways-eu-rules-nationalise-single-market-restrictions-labour-a8968691.html From reading this it appears that from 2023 EU rules will require some Publicly owned railway lines to be put out to competitive tender, there would be nothing to stop the government submitting thier own tender as part of the process, that doesnt necessarily mean they will win of course.
