Re: The Politics Thread

Why Blairites are going hysterical August 11, 2015 In 1994 Blair took over the Labour party and made it safe for British capitalism. Which is why so many top companies and banks were content to contribute large sums to the party in order to hedge their bets – they gained whichever party won the ele...

Marc Iles:
Hearing a fourth bid has been submitted by QPR for Tim Ream. It does not match the £2million I believe Wanderers are asking for him - but Rangers seem persistent, and as you might have heard today, Fulham have also enquired about the American defender.

Re: The Politics Thread

Except you have, & do, constantly. If you don't then I suggest you develop greater clarity as that's how your constant defence of everything remotely critical comes over.

You are talking in very broad terms. What do you think needs doing particularly to solve the problem? Saying work needs to pay is easy to do, but very hard to achieve in reality. The problem is many people are actually worse off through going to work or at least marginally better off. And there is ...
