    Clearly this United Kingdom is at a Crossroads in history.
    With that in mind Benny Burgon must be the chosen one. Another Bennie to add to the pot. We could unify under The Momentum Motel.

    I find a lot of the time so-called socialists are tighter than a submarine door hinge
    Out on the piss in town with workmates and it wasn't the so called socialists in the group who'd pass the odd quid to the 
    homeless beggars who approached (yeah i know no doubt all smackheads, but it is christmas)
    spoke volumes about them

    I know a few ardent lefties and they are indeed tight as fuck, they were the first to pay off their mortgages and hoard cash like the proverbial followers of Abraham.

    One of the biggest lefties I know is a working class remainer btl people farmer who also works offshore, pays little by way of tax but at the same time is happy to flood the uk with Europe's unemployable and presumably wants me to pay for the privilege of it all. Unbelievable really.

    I mentioned Long-  Bailey's waxen set smug grin. Very odd, she looks like this 90% of the time. Maybe not such a handicap, better than Rayner who looks miserable 90% of the time. But heck slightly disconcerting. A bit ghoulish.

    DOUGLAS MURRAY: Britain’s divide isn’t North v South or red v blue. It’s between the ugly intolerant Left and the rest of us
    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-7793275/DOUGLAS-MURRAY-Britains-divide-ugly-intolerant-Left-rest-us.html
    Putney, like Kensington and Chelsea, is filled with rows of over-priced ¬£1 million homes where residents would have faced huge tax hikes if Labour got into power. Yet the constituency still decided to vote for the socialist experiment that¬†Jeremy Corbyn¬†and John McDonnell were promising ‚Äď and in so doing, upended a whole set of presumptions.
    Simple. UK property is grossly undertaxed whilst PAYE is over taxed.
    And people on benefits receive a massive sub from rest of uk to pay for thier housing bebefit, whuch props up London housing, which requires a larger sub from rest of uk ....

    The old saying about a donkey with a red rosette winning in certain areas is no longer true.
    A significant % of labours traditional vote have cured themselves of Stockholm Syndrome.
    In her 'we're fucked' speech, Jess Philips was going on about austerity. Her idea of dealing with austerity is to import lots and lots of poor people.
    If labour really want their traditional voters back, they need to get rid of the political correctness. That's not going to happen so bye bye labour.

    And build a lot of new social housing that can never be bought or passed on to NFP companies who build themselves fancy offices.
    Bungalows are in massive demand due to an aging population so let's build some.
     
    And keep the borders shut to the workless.

    I agree with Jezza.
    It’s too early to be admitting defeat, Comrade Corbyn has lost the battle but not the war and Labour have in fact won, well won a morally victory for decency and respect. Boris’s so-called victory is tainted with racism and Islamophobia. But maybe Corbyn was not ambitious enough with the Marxist Manifesto. He probably held back too much on re-nationalising more industries, he should have increased the minimum wage and increased investment in public services. And maybe people are just stupid and misunderstood about those pension payments and other give-aways. So the message from the voters is clear that Corbyn had the right policies and won the hearts and support of the people and so in a very real sense Corbyn won the contest really, Labour won. But the voters felt they could not actually give Labour their vote because Labour did not have radical enough policies and maybe Corbyn came across as bad tempered with a sore bottom from sitting on the Fence and straddling two horses, Brexit and Remain. But the far-right media such as the So-Called BBC had it in for Brother Corbyn, showing pictures of Corbyn with people like Gerry Adams and Hamas who for their own twisted reasons the racist media class as terrorists rather than freedom fighters.
    So Labour should of course be asking for a judicial review of the whole election process and taking the case to the Supreme Court and the EU Court of Human Rights because I see some underhand dealing here from the racist media … too much smoked salmon and bagels around the place, if you get my meaning. This is not over Comrades we still need Labour to save the NHS and keep those borders open to allow new friends and comrades from around the world to come and help us win the country back for the people.
    For the Many not the jew Few. Refugees welcome. Power to the People.

    I didnt, mainly because my local MP is the bigggest snivelling brown nosed toady imaginable.
    But i feasted on the misery of the bastards who got booted out, and Boris winning bigly was how that came to be brought about*.

    If he decriminalises it then the So-Called BBC will be dead.
    However, I bet he ensures that BBC News survives with some form of govt grant. But then that would just ensure their ability to continue their anti British pro EU pro Marxist sh*t.  He really need to make them accountable and stop their hatred of this country - the only way is to stop the funding.

    The Grey Man reacted to Frank Hovis in The Future Of the So-Called BBC   
    My parents watch the news and the wallpaper programmes - A Place in the Sun, Homes under the Hammer, Antiques Roadtrip, Tipping Point, The Chase, Pointless - plus Strictly.
    There is absolutely no reason to have legislation and taxation in order to fund a broadcaster to produce these prorgrammes; any of the Freeview channels would happily produce these and they're really cheap to produce.  Wherever the vast amount of money is going it's certainly not up on screen. 
    If it moves to a subscription model then I don't see why they would want to subscribe.  For what they watch there's nothing on the So-Called BBC that isn't doen equally well or better on other channels.
    In our latest forecast, we expect total BBC spending in 2018-19 to amount to £4.0 billion
    https://obr.uk/forecasts-in-depth/tax-by-tax-spend-by-spend/bbc-licence-fee-receipts-expenditure/
    £4bn is a huge sum.  Think what transport or housing could do with that sort of budget increase.

    A choice of BBC threads! 
    Staying with family atm so a break from my legal licence free existence.  Clearly one of the best things I ever did.  You sit there like a zombie and they serve up sh*te, setting the agenda of your life.  Utter insanity.
    I had to sit there while Strictly was on and then MacIntyre.  I just buried my head in my tablet with DOSBODS.  Some stuff sucks you in like a cheap bit of fast food which gives you a rush only to feel empty and a bit sick afterwards.  Insidious.  Have to slap myself every now and then.
    Moving the So-Called BBC, but not its back catalogue which we have already paid for, to subscription would be good for everyone's health.  Those pulling the strings are nasty, evil, parasitic effers.
    But watch how they weavil out of this latest outbreak of sanity.

    Im repeatign what Ive and many others have said on here before.
    My now teenage kids do not watch TV at all.
    At best, they watch the odd film. Rick n Morty n South Park ar popular - but they are netflix.
    Compare to me n my siblings when we wee there age, we used to have telly on from 4pm to 11pm.
    Me n mrs spy watch netflix. This has changed my viewing habit as I know watch much less TV, choosing only to watch good stuff.
    Only my mam n dad watch telly. They dont pay for the license. Event then its mainly ITV.

    It was both Boris and somebody called John Whittingdale who is lined up for Culture Secretary and is clear that the licence cannot continue in its current form beyond 2027 and that non-payers would be decriminalised.
    Boris has said he would consider abolishing it.
    This is mainstream now; the So-Called BBC is on its last legs.
    Thirty years ago I would have been horrified by that but now I call it good news; they are the ones who have become biased metropolitan liberals.

    The Grey Man got a reaction from OurDayWillCome in The Future Of the So-Called BBC   
    Reading the above its quite a simple way to force the So-Called BBC into adopting some form of digital payment/ pay as you go.
    Quite happy with that. You dont use. You dont pay.
    I think thee BBC would have to give some.freebies free to view channels....if they dont there will be plenty who just sit back and watch whats the remaining free to view channels and not be tempted...which could happen anyway with freebies. I guess they might have to at present under their charter?
    The more you dig and think here, the more you realise that there must be a lot at the So-Called BBC shitting themselves.

    The Grey Man got a reaction from JFK in Scottish independence   
    Personally I agree. She would be depriving Scotland of its choices and best interests. She should stick.to the once in a generation view.
    For her..I dont think she cares. She wants and she will push..pretending its in the best interests.
    Everytime..any opportunity is good for her.
    She wrangles one before and after every political change is her plan I think. Always providing the next excuse for then saying...ahh...those werent the same conditions as last time. We need another vote.
    The once in a generation reasoning is not something she aligns with I suspect.
    If she gets this by her rules then she sets the future game. She will be knocking at no 10 for ever and a day.
