They tend to do fairly well in a lot of European countries, it's good to see, finally seem to be shedding the one issue party tag.

They tend to do well in countries with a PR voting system because people see that it's worthwhile voting for them.

So you're saying they're not planning for a 1.5 day work week?

 

 

But... but.... Stronts said they are. He backed it up with a link to the Metro and everything. 

 

Honestly, I just don't know what to believe any more.

I already provided evidence in the form of a news article, so that's bizarre.

 

But if you want a citation directly from the report:

 

Lastly, the working week reductions above assume a linear and absolute decrease in working time, which would therefore not allow the use of working time reductions to offer jobs to the unemployed or to increase the working hours of the underemployed (which would require a more equal sharing out of current working hours). If we wished to achieve these social goods, an even more radical conclusion emerges: the actual sustainable work week, based on today’s levels of productivity and carbon intensity, would likely need to be well below 10 hours per week per person, even in relatively carbon-efficient economies such as Sweden.

 


 

What the report says is very different from what you suggested. 

 

You said Labour were planning for a 1 1/2 day week. The report makes the suggestion. 

 

Theres a s difference.

 

And the article you posted doesn’t say that is what Labour are looking to do either. It’s making the assumption that’s what they are going to do. 

 

I’d suggest you have a proper read.

He understood it perfectly well. He's just trolling Labour for shits and giggles. 

 

If he were really that easily gulled by tabloid headlines, he'd be a Brexiteer.

Seems an idea.

She's a fucking disgrace! She's batshit crazy, and she can't fucking blame it on baby brain either! She'd gone fucking nuts before she was up the stick!

 

Calling a man who's been arrested in the past for campaigning against racism a racist! Silly cunt!

Let the prick (Riley) carry on with ridiculous shit like that, most will just laugh at her.  Anyone who would take her seriously are probably already past the point of reason.

Some good points here about how to challenge the appeal of right-wing populism. (It's not really anything new, but it's always worth bearing in mind.)

God forbid the opposition leaders asks for evidence of government actions...

What actions? 

 

JC has to keep his former employers sweet, never know when he might need a job.

He’s been an MP for 30 odd years. 

His stint on Iranian propaganda TV.  He got £20k. Nice work if you can get it.

It is, but what he has said is the same he said about any form of conflict the country might be trying to get involved in. 

 

Its not as if he has changed his outlook or view on our possible intervention in the Gulf.

So, we can accuse some MP's of having dual loyalty to the UK and another country, but not others without being labelled? 

 

Guess it depends on the particular MP and country. Are thems the rules?

Just issuing the statement and helping escalate matters, nothing else at this point.  Wasn't meaning we've dived in with the military at this point or anything.

 

Corbyn is acting pretty consistently with the Salisbury attack again, first reaction is scepticism, but with evidence he would probably again accept it (even if it's unlikely he'd support military intervention).  Hunt's jingoistic "don't ask questions" response just left me exasperated (even if it was coincidentally quite predictable and pathetic).

Stupidest fucking post ever.

 

On the one side you've got US chickenhawks doing what they've promised to do and what they've done many times before; on the other side you've got the bloke who was right about Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, etc. saying (again) that "Bomb first, ask questions later" is no basis for a foreign policy... but some of his policies might not benefit you financially, therefore he must be opposed at all times.

He got paid £20k. We know this because he declared it. There’s no conspiracy or controversy.  The TV channel lost its UK licence as it was a mouthpiece of the Iranian government.  That’s not disputed either.

    • Simon Mignolet is attracting a deal of interest by Liverpool's Premier League rivals but it has emerged that the Reds are just as keen to retain the Belgian goalkeeper.

      The Mirror reports that Crystal Palace and Brighton are interested in signing the 31 year-old Belgian for a transfer fee in the range of £8 million.

      However a different report from ESPN says that valuation falls short of their own and in any case, the club is determined to keep the veteran who they view as a fantastic influence in the dressing room.

      James Milner said as much in April "It's incredible how he is around the training ground, he has the best attitude I've ever seen in my life."

      It is that sort of high praise which is echoed across the club with Jurgen Klopp, goalkeeping coach John Achterberg, the rest of the backroom team and the playing squad wanting Mignolet to extend his six-year stay with the club.

      It is also believed that sporting director Michael Edwards has not actually put a fee on Mignolet as he does not foresee a sale taking place.  

      Mignolet who has another two years to run on his current deal ,was signed from Sunderland in 2013 and has made over 150 appearances in that period.    But he only added two cup appearances to that tally in 2018/9 after the summer signing of Alisson and the Brazilian did not give him a look in with his constant level of exceptional performances.

      Liverpool have been linked Alex McCarthy for Southampton in recent weeks to fill the back-up role, but more and more, clubs are very keen on having a couple of senior players on their books to help the younger players coming through as well as the new signings.

      In some ways being a number two is one of the toughest in football as you never know if, let alone when your number will be called.

      But you cannot buy respect and it seems the Belgian has that in spades. 

      It remains to be seen what will transpire between now and the end of the transfer window, but it seems a near on certainty that Mig has a place at Liverpool for the foreseeable future if he wants it.

    • "Watched by one and a half billion people worldwide..."   Yeah, right. Who the fuck watches the Commonwealth Games? Why does it even exist anymore?
    • Centre backs are harder to profile statistically and this is based on limited minutes but it's obvious what Edwards and the laptop nerds see in him:     That would look pretty solid if you were talking about a 26-year old. From a 17-year old, it's ... *drools*
    • Hopefully Spurs are not really our business this upcoming season but still, I am definitely NOT a fan of seeing Spurs fix the biggest problem in their squad with the best available player to do it with. Ndombele is seriously good.   Plus it means Lyon will definitely hang on to Aouar until next season at the very least. He is going to cost us an arm and a leg when we eventually go to pry him away from them.
    • Looks like it. Hopefully helps those useless cunts take points off City.
