I do know that all other coutries have their problems (I like Australia for example, but it has a worse problem with race than the UK IMO for example), but somehow if you live in another country you don't feel responsible for the appalling condition of politics there.


That's Corbyn being deliberately over-literal to deflect a question he doesn't want to answer, isn't it?

Not the worst thing that a politician has ever done.


that is the way I see it to....it is just a question avoidance thing...at the moment

Corbyn and McDonnell have been quite consistent in focusing on the outcomes rather than the structures.

For every single person who relies on the state for income, dignity and survival, this is an appalling decision by the Prime Minister. Starting today all of us in @UKLabour will redouble our efforts in the fight for a more compassionate society

what does it matter who is Shadow Leader of the House of Commons - it is an administrative role and doesn't affect me on a day to day basis

I only know Leadsom because she is malevolent........and had a chance of being our PM

A truly bizarre question to ask

And instead of worrying about semantics over the terminology of the Single Market and who is the Shadow Leader of the House, we could focus on the decisions to eave Hunt at Health (and give him social care) and putting McVile is at DWP - people will lose their lives having these incompetents in office

Some people need to look at where their priorities lie and think before the next time they lecture us on morals

As I boringly state social care and the DWP are linked (as well as local government etc),the targeted for reductions are precisely those that go/intended for the extra costs including paying for any social care.

Tell me if I;m missing something but what exactly has Damian Hinds done for a living outside politics?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Damian_Hinds

Elected as an MP at the age of 40...but done what exactly before?

That's Corbyn being deliberately over-literal to deflect a question he doesn't want to answer, isn't it?

Not the worst thing that a politician has ever done.



It is Labour policy to remain within the single market after we've left the EU during the 2 year transition.

Corbyn makes no sense. Again.

Easy to forget amid today's chaos that the only real reason for May to have a reshuffle in the first place was to get a new First Secretary and she didnt even bother to do that in the end. Complete waste of time.
