    Definitely not. I've chosen the main opposition to them in my area.

    Rudd keeps telling jokes about the money the Tories have spent on public services. Well they must be jokes as the audience laughter when she said the Tories has spent lots of money on public services.

    Erm, yeah, that's the whole point of spelling things out in an election campaign, to sway people's opinions.

    I'm sure you and your brethren were absolutely spitting teeth at any suggestion that there needed to be an election just a few weeks ago.

    If anything she's realised what a disaster Brexit is going to be and wants out.
    Will work inside IR35. Or for food.

    No, she just locks the press in a room and makes a bunch of poor factory workers listen to her...
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    With modern media people have enough ways to find things out for themselves.

    The tv is just a mouth piece to speak to the people who refuse to seek facts for themselves.

    Does this tv debate really give anyone anything but soundbites about things which will be spun to make themselves look good but in reality carry the weight of a ping pong ball?

    Running a country is tough and you cannot give someone an elevator pitch or 1 pager on it.

    So rather than spewing hate why not try some respect.

    The easy thing to do would have been nothing.
    Yes. She was useless as Home Secretary and now she is showing she is useless as Prime Minister. There are numerous clips of her saying that she would not be calling a snap election, then she called one with a piss poor excuse. Personally I think she called because she knows that Brexit is going to **** up the UK so she's made the worst manifesto in Conservative history hoping that the electorate vote someone else in...




    (Alternatively she and Trump are sleeper Putin agents are have been woken to destroy the western world....)

    Absolutely agree.

    But neither can you make things up to suit yourself, like "has anyone thought that maybe the election was called..."

    Assuming you've followed your own advice and done your own research, you would know exactly what May has said her motivation for calling the election is.
