    Yes, they look 'socialist' if that list is the only agenda.

    You probably know I'm rabid anti-right-wing but while never an extreme leftist, I've always wanted the 'fairest-for-all' in my political outlook.

    I'm among the minority who support raising taxes in order to help reduce poverty and improve services. I support re-nationalisation of the railways, post office, telecommunications and energy.

    So, I am a very infrequent reader of the likes of the Telegraph and would normally not agree with much in it. However, this snippet struck a chord with me:

    If you’d like to know a little about life under the SNP, tune into West Sound Radio sometime. It’s the station that I grew up with on the west of Scotland, and to which I still listen sometimes, on Sunday mornings, for that little bit of hometown connection. The programmes themselves are fine. It’s the news and adverts in between that would make English centre-Right hair curl. The preaching on how to live your life is relentlessness. And this is life under an SNP government: it really does know best, knows that it knows best, and if you don’t agree that it knows best, will spend your money to tell you it knows best.
    They also want to control the media in Scotland, dilute education to the point that no-one sees through what they're up to and, for me, the real danger is what happens when they eventually have the absolute power that Sturgeon craves?

    The list, though, is part of their UK manifesto. They know they have no chance of making any impact on UK politics so they can put out the most socio-friendly soundbites you'll see anywhere as they'll never have to fulfil them.

    Fair enough - we'll have a to agree to disagree on the subject - for me they are a great left wing alternative to Labour and I think that the English would probably love to have something of their like to vote for.

    I'm not worried about them getting too big for their boots - this country has a habit of bringing such folk down to size readily enough.

    I was brought up to believe Geordies were just Scotsmen with their heads bashed in, so he's a fair way there already.

    That's actually an angle I hadn't considered!

    Yeah I've done sone work with Liberty before. They've got their ear to the ground on mass survellance. Edward Snowden, who exposed the American spy agencies is a supporter of them. If anyone feels like donating to them its a worthy cause.

    Funnily enough I'm actually half Scottish and have always quite fancied 'retiring' in Scotland.

    Why did you call Muslim women letterboxes?”
    Boris Johnson: “The public feels alienated from us all as a breed of politicians because too often they feel we are muffling and veiling our language."
    Audience applauds..

    Is it true that Beth was boo'd by Johnsons supporters when she asked the question?

    Yes, she was. Don`t you despair at the calibre of our MP`s? Clowns and fools who now look like electing one in their own image and likeness.

    The ERG crew increasingly remind me of the cast of One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest. Terrifying to think how much influence they have.

    If anyone's been watching Summer of Rockets that made me think of the ERG also. I actually find their name quite chilling; something of the 1984's about it....

    What on earth is the point of holding TV debates - or any other public debates for that matter - to discuss a race whose two runners are to be decided by 313 conservative MPs and the winner chosen by 100,000 or so conservative party members?

    Would not some Conservative party members be interested in a public or TV debate? Surely on such an important issue most serious minded people would want to fully consider both candidates policies and views.

    Channel 4, to their credit decided not to play by Boris's rules but treat him as an equal to the rest and he decided to boycott them knowing it massively devalues tonight's show.

    So we're now in Trumpland where you have politicians being mini-dictators, only speaking to their chosen friends in the media who give them good press and shout Fake News at the rest who dare to criticise The Brexit Broadcasting Company won't even give him a chance to reveal his stupidity..
