Well that was back when a job was for life.

What the feck happened there is beyond me.


Don't know about golden but it seemed better than the brown one we seem to be in now.

Nope, nor do i imagine running fiber optic cables, to all rural areas is in any way a viable nor cost-effective prospect to consider, and that's just geography.

Labour thinks this will be paid for by taxing tech giants on their global earnings.
Global earnings.
How might that work?

Thing is it was indeed the Brown age that screwed it all up.

The world spun i suppose.

Probably because you seem to blame the Tories for everthing. Quite some rose tinted glasses you have there.

I blame Thatcher for stealing my milk at school if that clarifies matters. LoL

I think the blame is rather apparent and they are the ones handing out austerity to the poor whilst lining they and their own kinds pockets.

I say what i see, and unfortunately thats not Boris dead in his ditch yet.

Jobs for life in the state run sector?

Remember what BT was like before it was privatised? Waiting 6 months for a landline? Etc.

? What will then happen to all the other broadband suppliers and all those jobs?


Any job loses would be far few than the 100,000 that lost their jobs with BT since it was sold off.




Since privatisation, more than 100,000 jobs have been lost at BT,

I'm a traditional Labour supporter at heart as their domestic and social policies best reflect mine.....or they did.

In principle I support nationalisation of utilities and key services.....but they need to be ran and managed as if they were a private company and NOT the incompetent, labour intensive way they were in the past.

But The Labour Party needs a heavy injection of reality and common sense.
Who on earth is going to pay for all this nationalisation and public expenditure?
Corporate tax?
Too bloody right we should enforce corporate tax laws....but the reality is a lot of those corporations would simply walk away from the UK with a result in job losses etc.

Corbyn and his cronies are promising anything and everything in the knowledge people are so pissed off with the effects of austerity.
Yes, we know there is money to spend - there always has been - but the billions upon billions upon billions that Labour say they are going to spend?
That will require borrowing and borrowing on a scale that'd probably put Bliar and Brown to shame.

Yes, we need a certain amount of wealth redistribution and levelling of the land....but it needs to be well thought out and part of a long term structured and reasoned plan, not some hair brained spur of the moment policy decision based on desire rather than reality.

Boris and his Brexit bus part II.

You canny make this crap up.

Do you think he painted it himself and made it out of boxes?
LoL

I remember phone boxes always stank of piss no matter who was in power.

The thing with BT back them was the information age had not quite picked up the pace that she is now running.

More like six weeks if memory serves, don't know about the rural areas all the same, i can imagine you might not be too far wrong.

Do you remember when trains somewhat ran on time and you could actually get the seat you paid for?

Memory lane is smashing of a sorts, must be the rose-colored glasses i suppose.

Well to be fair mate she was a horrible and vindictive person.

And we are still feeling the effects of her policies and 'culture' she encouraged and inspired.

Aye but dont we own 60% if the banks we bailed out ,and dont they owe us money with interest ?

Giving free stuff away to everyone is just bollox. Where will all these billions come from?
Labour will bankrupt whats left of the UK . They never learn and nor do people who are still going to vote for this shower of incompetents.
Anyone believe that Corbyn would not sell us out to the SNP in a moment if he could get the keys to no 10?

Unless of course its to the bankers.

Then it's ok.

What about the DUP don't you imagine the Tories will drop them like a hot potato soon as the chance should arise?
