    crashmonitor got a reaction from Darude in The GREAT BIG General election thread   
    Totally agree; Mrs Duffy was 65 at the time she had her run in with Gordon Brown in 2010, she had already been in receipt of state pension for 5 years, an index linked public sector pension of probably 30/60th plus a transferrable SP from her late husband. Her contention is she shouldn't be paying tax.
    The trouble is if you treat certain demographics as vulnerable/ more equal then they end up believing it. Her disposable income compared to commitments probably top 10 or 20% of the population at that time.
    Yep she had the luck of State and occupation pension at 60. A different age from the present Waspi.

    The promises just cancelling each other out imo. That therefore focuses the electorate on personalities and Corbyn is a major liability here.
    His overconfidence is starting to grate now, as he continues to gloat on June 17's close run race. There appears to be an assumption that the polls will turn again, he even says "WHEN"I am PM next month.
    Gobsmackingly arrogant for someone who trails 13% in the polls and class A cuntishness. The electorate hate that sort of presumption imo. It was the Tory's arrogance in 17 that undid them. Boris looks more humble than Cuntbyn just now.

    I must admit I thought the 007 movie Goldfinger made the suggestion (as played by Shirley Eaton) that being unable to sweat might result in death.  It must be a different condition?

    Her tax complaint was a bit of a puzzle even at the time as if she had the income then like everyone else she should pay the tax.  Though trying to put it in context at the time there was controversy about the low paid actually paying tax and again from memory there had been massive controversy when Brown was Chancellor about him making a massive hike in the lowest rate of tax which he had to at least partially reverse.  I guess in her tax complaint she was just taking the opportunity to air her own general dissatisfaction with taxes - and on behalf of others as it was a particularly controversial point at the time.
    The bigotgate being more to do with her views on the massive level of immigration.

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7698433/Jeremy-Corbyn-filmed-watching-immoral-Jews-accused-celebrating-Palestinian-deaths.html
    Jeremy Corbyn stood by and did nothing as a pro-Palestinian activists branded Jews 'immoral' and accused them of 'celebrating' the death of innocents, newly unearthed footage reveals today.
    The Labour leader was by the side of the stage at a London rally as Ishmail Patel spoke just feet away.
    The footage raises fresh questions for Mr Corbyn, who was today questioned over his personal role in the fight against anti-Semitism. 
    Mr Patel has previously praised Hamas for 'standing up to Israel' and insisted it is 'no terrorist organisation'.
    As Mr Corbyn looked on he tore into Jews over the situation in the Middle East, saying: 'We see the impact of Zionism on Palestinians. 
    'But it has had a devastating effect on the Jewish community itself: it has made them immoral in justice

    The reality is that that someone working today should not be paying tax for Mrs Duffy pension.
    The LA should have been fully funded. They are not.
    A large chunk of ctax goes to pay LA pensions.
    LA must be forced into bankruptcy or made to slash pension payouts.

    Corbyn must wonder what's happening, his favourite pollster Survation has forsaken him.

    Weirdly they have switched to phone so not like with like, as online before*. So a 6% lead has become 14%. Pretty crap to come up with such a variation.

    *ie. missing all those students. I hope they are giving students 1.7 votes each, otherwise these polls are rubbish.  ( joking apart pollsters should ask ( confidentially) how many times students intend to vote)

    Notably Mrs Duffy didn’t want to talk to the media about brown turning up at her home and spending an hour there to personally apologise to her about the “misunderstanding“.
    Mrs Duffy is an ordinary person. She was somewhat lucky in life to work for the local council for 30 years and receive a pension plus a state pension. She also brought up a family and was worried about her grandchildren. Being a widow she felt her tax was too high to pay benefits to immigrants with no job.
    Just imagine how ordinary people who have no occupational pension, increased state pension access age, no secure job, no prospect of a secure home etc are feeling these days.
    It makes me sad but I truly believe that the uk is declining rapidly and growing dissatisfaction will eventually lead to violence.

    When the allegations came out i thought "thats a bit strange i don't rememeber this"
    Nope, you'd think "this is preposterous"
    you wouldn't ask yourself, "do I remember this?"

    Thanks for your views. Appreciated.
    My son is only at college one day a week and the rest of the week he’s working with brickies.
    Until recently he was working on new build houses but is now with an independent brickie (the guy who gave my son the apprenticeship opportunity) and working on a variety of projects.
    Thankfully son has been doing really well in his assessments and his future is looking bright.

    Yep can't see movement being stemmed under any Liblabcon. Corbyn, meanwhile, on Marr says we can look forward to a "great deal of movement of people" ( and we know which direction that will be flowing)

    What's the policy?  Is it in the manifesto?  Thumbs up to Worse Than Remain, mass immigration, jerry building and corporate rip-offs?
    I dare say even Corbyn and Swinson would do that for their own similar policies if they thought it would win a couple of votes.  People fall for it of course.

    Watched the start and never even heard of the 73 blaze at Summerland that killed 50 people on the Isle of Man. I can absolutely guarantee that the wealthy white folk who died had been forgotten about by two years later. I'm old enough to remember wall to wall Watergate at that time. 
    We have a tendency to over- compensate news coverage if it is a class war/ race issue. Stephen Lawrence comes to mind. Then it's full on self flagellation. Also probably more of a blame culture now, which makes it more newsworthy.

    Here's an interesting fact...
    In the 19th century French vines suffered a blight so bad that they had to import vines from the US to restart their wine industry, so French wine is actually US wine.
    South Africa on the other hand imported their vines from France before the blight and never suffered from it.
    So if you want to know what actual French wine should taste like get a South African.

    crashmonitor got a reaction from stokiescum in Wine   
    I quite like those New World Lidi wines tbh, the cheapest of which is a South African Pinotage at  £3.79. There is a lot of snobbery over the superiority of European wines. Europeans are by and large lower alcohol having a cooler climate..that Cabernet will be 14%, French around 11%. There's more tannin in European wines from the skin that have a bitter taste and is good for you, which some wine buffs prefer.
    Cabernet is the King of red wines and it doesn't get much  fruitier or smoother than a South African Cabernet I'm afraid. Stick with it and you might like it.
    I dislike Port, too sweet; it's probably the contrast that surprised you.
