So again working class kids get disproportionally impacted. So now the Unis have to lower the entrance for working class kids and they get put into courses they will never have a hope of finishing.

    You can probably go though all the items on the manifesto and argue that it will have the opposite effect than what they claim.
    What is not said in a manifesto is important. I don't believe that IR35 was included in Tony Bliar's manifesto, or for that matter any other stealth taxes that Brown implemented.

    Nearly anyone buying a townhouse in Islington 40 years ago, paying off the mortgage, and not having an obviously ostentatious lifestyle will have a comparable net worth.

    Is it Labour policy to share everything with everyone?

    No. It is to increase social mobility. So you can get on in life even if you don't have rich parents.

    Rubbish. It is only fair that everyone pays an equal price for the same service. You could argue that the extremely rich should get a discount because they are less likely to receive unemployment benefit etc.

    Plus you get one vote on where to spend money, even if most of the money is yours. And some racist chump that hasn't contributed anything gets equal say as to how to spend your money.

    The Tory bounce after the pact with Nigel Farage seems to be slowly dissipating.

    I would get familiar with the manifesto.
