When my daughters had their horses stabled near hexham there was a tory mp who kept his at the same place. I asked him once, why would poor People ever vote tory, benefits cuts, nhs cuts etc. His answer, Darwinism. Its god's way of weeding out the weak. Not wrong is he alge?

Hopefully, the tories will win in Cumbria and you move back there. My personal election goal, to get you home to England, where you belong.

As I said earlier, the Labour Party are going to play the NHS card over and over again-Marko is happy to oblige.

Yet it was the Labour Party who privatised the NHS with their fixation with PFI and blew their brains.

Having just watched Barry Gardner on BBC, we are in for 6 weeks of NHS football.The claims are quite outrageous and will turn people off-playing on insecurity is poor in the extreme.

The NHS is a national asset-take it out of politics.But that would hurt Labour with no football to play with.

Double standards are a constant problem we have on here. Just look at the thread on the poor man who died on the chimney. The list of people bemoaning the standard of mental health care in Cumbria is almost man for man the same as the people posting in favour of the Tories, the party who have slashed funding for ... mental health services. I mean is it really that hard to make links?

I lived abroad for 20 years. The country I have come back to is not the same prosperous, ambitious, confident place I left last century. Another 5 years of this will just make it worse and,to be honest, its difficult not to think its deserved. Unemployed people voting for a party that freezes benefits for 9 years. I must have been off school when we did this

To keep it on a local theme, I have just been reading on the BBC website about a man from Carlisle whose daughter has gained access,through the NSH to the new Cystic Fibrosis drug, which is going to make life changing differences to all sufferers.

The SNP have done a deal with the manufacurer to help the 400 sufferers in Scotland.

Three guesses where this drug comes from. The demon USA, whose pharmecutical companies Jezza is going to ban.

Just remind you prospective Labour candidate of this fact when they come knocking, I know I will.

I think labour intend to reform the pharmaceutical market process rather than just "ban" drugs from the "demon" USA?

Can’t get my head round anyone other than the wealthy voting Tory. Corbyn is getting a lot of stick and yet Boris the clown gets away with much worse and some folk are holding him up as the messiah, unbelievable.
We should sack most of the self interested politicians and start from scratch with genuine people employed by the public to truly represent us and not just their own ambitions and back pockets.
Another five years of Tory rule and the country will be beyond repair and very much under the control of the Americans, so much for taking back control.

Couldn't agree more (Corbyn is an abysmal politician too though)
The only party willing to change the system is the Liberals.
They're the only one's proposing Proportional Representation as their preferred system
It's also the only fair system and one whereby politicians have to work together instead of the party political rumpus we have...5 years of change followed by 5 years of undoing all again, it's a system where MP's have to represent their constituents and the only way they can stay as an MP is to work for the common good.
It wipes out the 'self servers' in one go.

I can't understand the Labour cry of the NHS being dead if the Tory's are in power though, it's been under Tory rule for far longer than it has Labour.
The last Labour regime sold large chunks of it to private finance, outsourced several major services such as cleaning (Dramatic rise of MRSA, C-Diff actually coincides with this)
They quietly closed Mental Health and Primary care facilities under the pretence they'd be dealt with more efficiently in the community, cut Primary care jobs by accident as a result while simultaneously almost bankrupting the whole show by forcing through ill-advised reforms they were repeatedly warned were damaging, expensive and would achieve very little (NHS Plan, National Service Frameworks, Targets culture etc...)

At one stage with their targets nobody knew what was expected or how to achieve them anyway, then they were fined for not achieving targets!
The poorest most stretched trusts were robbed of much needed budget cash for underperforming....total insanity.

Not sure where the idea that Labour are the keepers of the NHS comes from after that...? But it wasn't Jeremy, It was 'Champagne Socialists' apparently (like there's a difference)

It's better to be silent and assumed a fool than to speak and remove all doubt

Convicted Newcastle Utd football hooligan with some serious questions to ask about his dodgy mortgage dealings whilst head of the NUM.And Corbyn has the cheek to ridicule Ashley for his running of the football club.Last time I looked,Mike was in for at least £300m of his own cash!

Studies find that privatised medicine and health care work out far more costly . It's an argument time after time. It's not like other industries if a the bakery put up the price of bread you can always find a new bakery. If a drug company is the only company allowed to make a drug then they can do what they want.

Although as governments are often ran by the people who have investment funds linked to it they would be stupid not to invest , As the best thing about being in government you can do the things which skew others up and not yourself.

According to Cambridge University the policies of the current Government are responsible for 120k deaths. The UN has accused the Government of violating its human rights obligations. Therefore, according to these organisations, if you vote for the Government you are enabling this situation. Why can't we discuss that. It's fine to kill people but discussing it is somehow unsavoury?? Are in the Womens Institute or something? If you are uncomfortable with unnecessary deaths then don't vote for them. If you are comfortable then fine, but don't hide behind faux outrage to avoid unpleasant questions that (according to leading specialists) your actions are causing- take some responsibility, instead of wendying out of it.

The interesting thing is Cameron just chucked in the idea of a referendum to try and quell a bit of unrest in the Tory party from the likes of John Redwood. As the most out of touch British prime minister since the early 1960s Cameron had little idea of what ordinary people across England actually thought about immigration and the EU. The referendum gave people the chance to express their views and it exposed a fault line not seen since the English Civil War.

Just like Neville Chamberlain is remembered for his attempt to appease Hitler, Cameron's historical legacy will be the fracture of British politics and the beginning of the break-up of the United Kingdom. That's some achievement for a girly swot Centrist PM.

Good description of you tbf Marko.

Marko-the reason we had austerity was entirely down to your Supreme Leader Gordon Brown-he literally tan out of money and road after promising no more boom and bust.

2008 and the financial crisis seems to have been airbrushed out of history-convenient for all responsible.Blame the bankers but New Labour were entirely happy to mix with them and use their taxes to fund the spending binge.

I blame the arrogance of Labour for the rise of the SNP and Farage.After decades of taking their core support for granted, the voters in those areas-central belt if Scotland, northern industrial towns, they turned against the vacuum and voted for hope-both Farage and the SNP offered hope in big measure and when you are on the bottom of the ladder and neglected, you vote for it-no choice.

So where were you Marko when the Scottish Labour Party we’re corrupt, ineffective and putting up monkeys with red rosettes?Look at Glasgow East where the average life expectancy for a male is sub 60-a Labour heartland for decades.Who is responsible?Is this a Tory problem and if so, why?

I didn’t say that but his light touch City regulation and active encouragement to borrow, borrow, borrow, was a major factor.He also attempted to gerrymander the labour vote by opening the immigration floodgates.Couple that with the persuasive argument that he had abolished boom and bust and you have a perfect environment for debt fuelled exuberance

The imf and the world Bank both told Osborne in 2012 that austerity was not an appropriate policy for Britain. The WB estimated that the economic multiplier for Britain was as high as 1.6. In other words every pound spent generated £1.60 back. Osborne chose to ignore them as did Howard. Only when trump and Clinton both started on about spending out of recession did may pipe up. Austerity was a deliberate policy of the tories to force down wages and another proven tory failure It was nothing to do with Labour. But as always oooh Corbyn, reflex twitch

Gordon Brown lost the plot.

He started off, for about six months saying the global financial crisis was created by the US subprime market, then laterly he dropped the US bit,
no doubt after a warning from Obama.

The then went though a period of breaking out into an inane grin without any reason, like full on Eric Morecambe.

One Brexit vote , two elections and a country not just divided in half.


The interesting thing is Cameron just chucked in the idea of a referendum to try and quell a bit of unrest in the Tory party from the likes of John Redwood. As the most out of touch British prime minister since the early 1960s Cameron had little idea of what ordinary people across England actually thought about immigration and the EU. The referendum gave people the chance to express their views and it exposed a fault line not seen since the English Civil War.

Just like Neville Chamberlain is remembered for his attempt to appease Hitler, Cameron's historical legacy will be the fracture of British politics and the beginning of the break-up of the United Kingdom. That's some achievement for a girly swot Centrist PM.

I feel quite sorry for Chamberlain as people don't realise why he went for appeasement as our military wasn't ready as Germany had spent the last 6 years rebuilding ,He knew war was coming and was just trying to make time to rebuild the Military for the war. It failed dramatically as Hitler paid it no attention.

Where as Ramsey McDonald did nothing while Hitler repeatedly broke the treaty of Versailles repeatedly and no one remembers his lack of action

Gordon Brown was crucial in restoring the world economy, it was his idea which other counties copied and their economies grew far faster than ours from worse situation , Although people like Laffy will still blame labour for the world crashed economy knowing well that what caused it was subprime bonds private market, This had been going on for decades during both conservative and labour governments.

Gordon Brown sold the family silver and singlehandedly killed final salary pensions and the prospects for many nearing retirement.

He also placed many Company schemes in massive deficit, most of which, still are today.

He then used our money to bail out a bunch of greedy wanking-bankers who should have been given a long walk off a short plank !
