The bit in block first. Sorry, you're assumption is wrong. Not just doctors, never assume, regardless of how many letters anyone has after their name, that those letters equate to intelligence/common sense.

The part that isn't in block. More money in, more chance of them getting some.
Both very valid points.
 
And we can trust you Chuka?

I don't think so.
Trust Chuka?

I'm a Labour MP, I'm running for leader of Labour Party

Changed my mind, not running; but still a Labour MP

Changed my mind, I'm independent MP now

Changed my mind, I'm Change UK MP now
...
Changed my mind, I'm ilLiberal unDemocrat MP now

By Election for voters' approval? In your dreams

PS Hey suckers. If you re-elect me I might move to Greens or SNP or....
 
This one isn't really from the Telegraph, it's the ramblers association.

Telegraph is now the Guardigraph and has been for a few years since they changed to click bait - although how that works when it's paywalled I will leave to others to explain.

Yesterday they ran an article "Gigantic 23,600 tonne tanker (ship)"
 
Why is Kuenssberg wearing red Marigolds?
She's not. It's the indelible red bile spewed at Labour's Manifesto launch
 
It's obvious that the audience have been primed to be personal, not political.

Questions regarding the state of the nation are extremely thin on the ground.
To be fair, I don't think they are 'primed' just well chosen.
I spent the last hour whole two hours - primarily - watching repeats of BBT/Penny ;) .

Kaley Cuoco is just so preferable to ANY politician :) !!

When switching back/over, during the adverts, I did notice the SAME persons (plural !), asking questions of multiple leaders ?!

Raises questions!

Why/how were THEY identified as being articulate . . . the (only?) ones with questions . . . that the producer wanted asking ?! :( .

Burgon trying to dig himself out of a very deep hole.
He says when he was a solicitor he only earned 40k p.a. Crap solicitor, then.

I wish Burgon was in a hole and wrong on £80k income

However, Burgon proves Labour spending increase can't be funded by taxing what public sees as "the rich" when Labour's "the rich" includes MPs, Doctors, Biker Bloke, Senior Teachers, Military etc. Further, even >£80k isn't enough tax; >£30k will have to be hit too.

To deflect Burgon goes on a Billionaire rant, but finishes with "all here and watching are paying their fare share" - obviously not as Biker Bloke will be forced to pay more tax

Shame Biker bloke wrong

Shame - yes because individual aspiration and success disliked & punished by all parties


The top 1% of income tax payers in the UK is made up of 310,000 individuals with a taxable income of at least £160,000 – but to be in the top 0.1%, that income must be nearly £650,000.

The highest 1% of income taxpayers account for 27% of all income tax. It’s a more top-heavy tax than both National Insurance Contributions (NICs) and VAT, although less so than Stamp Duty Land Tax and Inheritance Tax.

Of the 54 million adults in the UK in 2014-15, 31 million paid income tax – which means that around 43% of adults in the UK do not earn enough to pay income tax.
UK Top 1% taxable income is only >£160,000pa - I would have guessed it was at least >£1Million pa. A huge problem for Labour's "Tax the rich" - there aren't enough Rich


[/i]43% of adults pay no tax[/i]
Which begs the question: No representation without taxation; should those 43% have a vote?

Edit: improve clarity

She has a degree in English, and is an English teacher.

During all of that significant university education, she didn't do the bit that says that only 7% of communication is verbal, the remaining being intonation @ 35% and non-verbal the remaining 58%.

It's culturally inappropriate to hide your face and disguise the rest of your body, and in this society, is a barrier to communication.

But that view is apparently racist.

Boris was just telling it as it is.

Andrew Neil Interviews Jeremy Corbyn Election 2019 Special
Great timing. I missed it as I was out. Thanks for the link.

Corbyn said the growth of "The far right" in Germany led to the Holocaust.
If I understand correctly, that means he is saying that the SOCIALISTS, as in National SOCIALISTS, were far right... Does that then mean that the hard left are actually the far right? Or is there a full spectrum of socialists from hard left through centist to hard right? @lokiuk for the political matrix please? Was it something like this:

Corbyn spinning like a top and waffled to stall for time and avoid hard questioning. He may be opposed to anti-semitism but his actions don't seem to reflect that. Whether he believes that or not how does his party illustrate that by having anti-semites standing for election?

Corbyn exposed how evil he is in his GE2019 Andrew Neil interview

No Contrition. No Empathy. No Apology. No utterance of Ephraim Mirvis

Corbyn did say "I'd like to meet the Chief Rabbi" - in the Alexanderplatz basement in Momentum HQ


Reviews
Stephen Glover: This was the moment Jeremy Corbyn’s mask was ripped away
...Would Mr Corbyn ... apologise?

The reply to all these questions was an emphatic ‘No’.

Confronted with egregious cases of anti-Semitism ... he expressed annoyance, but no contrition.

When Mr Neil asked if he was ‘ashamed’ that many British Jews are considering leaving the UK if a Labour victory, he declined the chance to say what an appalling end result that might be.

Four times he was given the opportunity to apologise for the fear in the Jewish community, and four times he refused. Many may have found it surprising that he would not express regret for all of the damage and fear his Labour Party has brought about...
Henry Deedes: Jeremy Corbyn's TV disaster made the Hindenburg explosion look like a minor prang
Jeremy Corbyn’s horror film of an interview with the BBC’s Andrew Neil did not begin so gently. ... Straight away, questions rained in about the Chief Rabbi’s excoriation of Labour’s anti-Semitism. The half-hour head-to-head was a disaster from start to finish for Corbyn.
 
The Andrew Neil Show 27.11.19 - Barry Gardiner crash & burn

Andrew Neil "It's not selling off the NHS you're worried about, it's Competition"
Andrew Neil "You're scaremongering" "You're misleading"

.
I've not watched Andrew Neil's Sturgeon interview yet, but reports suggest he eviscerated her as he did with Corbyn

Swinson should be easy meat for AN; seems ilLib unDems are "forgetting" we'll revoke Article 50 pledge
