    Tory voters don't bother me . Trump voters don't bother me nor le pen , northern league , afd etc etc . If you don't like democracy , move to North Korea .

    For the labour voters ( and yes I voted labour at the last GE) . Until labour deals with the Tony Blair's / Yvette Cooper's of this world they ll never dominate the working class vote as they used to . I'm all for social democratic justice but while the warhawks still dominate the labour party my votes still up for grabs should anyone want it .

    They should 'deal with' them by returning them to their former positions - then Labour might win an election again. Until then it will be a pointless party of protest.

    How are we running out of EU cash? Surely we are still in this Barnsley loving, cash handling, dream making, beast that is the EU?

    How could a council go ahead with a build without securing enough finance from the EU or otherwise. If they are running out of cash, then I do blame poor planning from the council. Nowt to do with blue passports.

    How can you blame brexit for that?

    Maybe , but after one election cycle they d be out again . Centre left politics is dying on its its arse . The days of Blair / Clinton / shroeder
    / Chirac are long gone . Where's the areas that are changing their voting behaviours ; northern England , east Germany , northern France , the rust belt in the US . All areas that globilism screwed over . When politicians tell you that a certain economic policy is in their best interests , then it turns out it isn't don't be shocked that people start voting for oddball candidates such as Trump .

    I'm just a bit surprised you managed to carry on your support. I worked for Yorkshire Bank in Goldthorpe in the early 80's, after my A levels.The devastation caused there by the way the pit closures were managed is staggering. It used to be a hard working village, with a lot of money. You are entitled to vote for whoever you like, it just surprises me. I'm not into changing your mind & you won't change mine either. I haven't got anything against you for your politics, it is a free country. We come on here mostly to discuss football, but football & the community do go together, so we are bound to get drawn in on this.

    How many ‘ordinary working families’ own property in London?

    Ordinary workers on comfortably above average wages can’t afford to even rent.

    I think you will find that the proposal you are mentioning has not been adopted by the Labour Party.

    Average house price just shy of 480k. So lets say you’ve just inherited the house your mam and dad bought in the 60’s, the house you grew up in, the comrades will send you a bill for 40% of its value. Because, according to them, no one should have what they call ‘unearned wealth’

    Stop getting your knickers in a twist trying to be all godly. The cash has already gone paying for care homes and other welfare needs

    We've got the NHS mate and it's not going anywhere.
    Focus on the real issues not this propagated nonsense. Argue about what's happening, there's a **** load to go about.

    Times have changed mate. The voting here will change dramatically in the next general election as people are sick to death. Your typical labour voter here wont vote labour because of Jeremy Corbyn, that's just fact. Hes hated here. They'll never vote Tory but you watch what happens, I guarantee the Brexit Party will get the vote here.

    I have no political beliefs other than they all piss in the same pot, they all talk a big game to get in the big seat and they all fail to deliver. The next generation are losing interest in it all and politics in this country will have to change.

    But why is that the fault of something that hasn’t happened yet?
