There'll be an initial flurry of spending & when they feel people have been distracted, it'll taper off.It's become a bit clearer where they see votes in this. They're trying to convince people the money will be spread across the region on improving and upgrading local transport. We'll that's my vote.
There you go, always good to have a 'they're just as bad as the other lot' thrown in to muddy the waters.The worrying thing is guys and girls, what’s the alternative? Kier blithering Starmer and his team of half wits who look like they haven’t a fucking clue what they are doing. They’ve spent the last 13 years in opposition. They will be like dazed rabbits in the headlights if they ever get in power. Can you actually see Starmer as Prime minister?? This has got a hung parliament written all over it. The worst outcome..
That's me.The polling I saw reported was something like more people thought it shouldn't have been built at all than wanted it built, but more people though if it is being built then it should continue to Manchester.
To add, the sort of thing he should've been made to announce in Parliament, not at the Con / UKIP / Brexit Party rally.Now being vindictive and spiteful, 'I don't want it so nor can you'.
“What will happen now is essentially a fire sale. The land is not going to be returned to nature. It’s going to be developed on. That will make it much more expensive and much more complex should any future government want to build it.”
Have they really bankrupted the country to such an extent that they needed a few hundred million?
He claimed to know what the people in the North wanted and yet failed to discuss his plans with politicians or businesses in the area. Did he have a focus group with locals? I think we know the answer.To add, the sort of thing he should've been made to announce in Parliament, not at the Con / UKIP / Brexit Party rally.
Small c yes, but clear majority of the Nation votes for lefty type parties and always have done in the last few decades in terms of share of the vote. With one exception, 2015 when Con and UKIP combined were 3% higher.There you go, always good to have a 'they're just as bad as the other lot' thrown in to muddy the waters.
Starmer and co are much too Blairite for me, but the country showed in 2019 that Corbynism was a non-starter no matter how much Momentum thought people wanted it. Brits are a conservative with a small c lot, and under the present first past the post system Labour will win in a landslide because they will vacuum up middle of the road centrist voters disgusted by the inept group of chancers currently inhabiting what used to be the Conservative party.
As a pragmatist i'll take that. you can't make laws by being ideologically pure in opposition, something the lefty Momentum chumps need to get through their thick skulls.
Then i'd suggest waiting at least a couple of years because they'll need at least that long to clear up the mess the tories have made of everything in the past 13.
Then you can call them useless.

Course, FPTP benefits Tories only and unless Starmer changes to PR within the next Parliament IF he wins power, then 2029 ish will see the Tories back no matter how much of a skip fire they are now. And the nose dive of the Nation on the World stage will continue unabated after a brief break.
