    No you just vote for the lesser of two evils.

    The European Union doesn't personally benefit me and Labour certainly don't represent white working class British people.

    That doesn't mean I like the Tory party .

    I would switch sides and vote for either party if I thought it would actually help.

    All female all bame shortlists are not my idea of inclusiveness and Labour are a joke now .

    Any targeted shortlist is a ****ing joke, applications should be open to all and the best qualified/suited gets the chance.
    If not, just drag some ****er in off the street who fits the required criteria and hope it works out.

    A measure of agreement here. It has resulted in the case of Labour that people such as Dawn Butler have ended up sitting on the front bench simply because they are female and black. This in turn helps to bring down the quality of the government ministers due to the fact that they can get away with it. The current crop of ministers is by far the least able to rule over us. Personally if it came to a choice between say Priti Patel and Michel Barnier running my country I wouldn't take very long coming to a decision. I do thing a degree of gravitas is essential in a government and this one us totally lightweight.

    You are quite possibly the angriest, saddest man on the interweb. You spend every waking hour counting how many black people there are in adverts, then ranting about it on a football forum.

    That is not what contentment looks like.

    I apologise sincerely for the fact that you could not comprehend the drift of my argument.

    While you read everyone of his posts so you can be outraged, why not put him on ignorer so you can see them?

    Its what a sensible person would do

    This

    I’ve worked all through this and will get zero thanks for it. Same goes for my colleagues too. Meanwhile MP’s get a pay rise, have a subsidised bar and don’t have to pay for a tv licence. Absolute joke

    I've never put anyone on ignore, that's a ****'s trick.

    I mostly ignore GC since it became overrun with unfunny idiots, but occasionally I take a peek at the freakshow.

    Become an MP then <ok>

    Labour MPS are more likely to fiddle the books for expenses as well

    Are they 'exempt' or is it more the case that they can claim the cost back in certain situations?
