Well maybe we're just not trying hard enough! The Tories got in with a majority, even though most of the country did 'not' vote for them. Does that seem right to you? Also, it might be a good idea if every single one of us wrote to our MPs and demanded that Blair be tried for treason for a start. What doesn't help is arguing amongst ourselves. From what I've read recently. it seems that most people agree about Blair and the politicians are paid by us, so we should demand to be heard!
PS.....While you are writing to your MP, you should also demand to know why Melanie Shaw is in prison.

Thanks Aileen, but If I was here, I would have told Joe to damn well look it up for himself and to check out what's happening in the USA as regards Christian symbols.....especially regarding Obama.

Caz, who voted in the politicians?    We did and we have to take responsibility for their actions.
There are many still in power who voted for the wars so the people with the ability to hold them to account did not do so.

Westminster is just a talking shop were bills are passed without much scrutiny or are passed to the House of Lords who are unelected how can that be democracy.

That's just pathetic. The HoL may be unelected, but the scrutiny given to government bills is quite something. It certainly puts the complete lack of checks and balances in the unicameral Scottish Parliament into perspective.

You don't really understand how the legislative process in this country works, do you?

This government is one of the most right wing I have ever seen in this country.

Bloody hell, no it isn't. They just introduced the highest minimum wage in Europe for gods sake. Centre right? Yeah, sure. Extreme right? You're having a laugh.

As for democracy, in this government that does not exist at present. Look at all the cuts and new laws eg zero hour contracts were workers are treated like ****, also not being paid a minimim wage, union powers being cut so they cannot fight for what they believe in, the national health service tories want it privatised. I would think long and hard about that.

The majority of ZH contract workers are quite happy with that arrangement (see the McDonald's trials). Deviants like Sports Direct are quite rightly hauled before a select committee and prosecuted. The curtailment of union rights was wound back by the House of Lords. Who cares if the NHS is privatised, as long as it's still free at the point of delivery?

Such a lot of ridiculous hyperbole from someone who happily votes for the Yellow Tories lol

this year it should be  Chris Froome and Andy should be honoured in some way in the Newyear honours list

However should Andy win the US Open and the Olympics nothing less than a knighthood will do
Can we please lay off this knighthood stuff?  For one thing I don't think Andy would want it right now while he's still competing, and for another I think that, should one be on offer, a knighthood should really be awarded after a sportsperson's career has ended, regardless of which sport.

This is still a Christian country

No it ******* isn't. Links between the CofE and the state are extremely limited. Atheists now outnumber Christians in England and Wales. You are free to worship whatever ridiculous sky wizard you wish, but that does not confer any special advantages beyond and above those conferred on worshippers of other recognised ridiculous sky wizards.

and kick them out of office and unless Brexit happens, we will soon lose that right too

This is bullshite of the most egregious kind.

which is why I voted to Leave. You are entitled to your opinion, but I'm sticking to mine.

Good job you used the word "opinion" there.

I watched the Djokovic/Muller match too and I agree, Djokovic looks thin and still kind of exhausted. He was smiling at the end but I feel he's definitely lost some bounce. Of course he's a bit out of practice right now having had no matches except one doubles (which he lost) since Wimbledon.  I wish he would stop doing that wave thing with the spectators at the end of his matches though!
I'll watch at least some of the replay of this - minus the wave which drives me nuts!

I'm just hoping that Stepanek can do some damage, considering how well he still plays at the moment. I really would like one of the younger guys to win this tournament, maybe Milos or Kei?
Much as I would like to see Kei win, I've a feeling that Milos has the slight advantage of having the home crowd behind him.

Yeah he looked completely out of sorts to be quite honest, I feel he only won because Muller made too many mistakes when it mattered.
