All pledges are  dependent on Brexit so we need a strong person to negotiate. We need someone who will stand up to the EU and not give in as Cameron did. I am sorry but I think Teresa May is the only leader who can do this. If we let them the EU will walk all over us. We must not forget that they need to trade with us as much as we do with them.

I actually dread Jeremy Corbyn or Tim Farron trying to negotiate with the EU. I think Theresa May is the only leader strong enough to actually fight for Great Britain. We could so easily give in to what they want. Jeremy's total lack of any monetary knowledge would probably just borrow in order to pay any fee they want and Tim would just take us back in whatever the 'cost'.
I don't see a way forward for anyone in this country, Tamila.  That's my point.   The whole scenario is very sad and very worrying.  I've said before that the EU is/was not perfect and still in it's infancy in terms of progress, with all the challenges that brings.   At least it took the UK out of it's insular mindset.   Now - we're back where we started.  I wonder what exactly it is 'Great Britain' is fighting for?

 Theresa May is inspiring zero confidence in her ability to conduct any sort of sound Brexit deal. She is clearly way out of her depth.  Long knives being sharpened if she doesn't get her strong and stable majority.
To be fair, I don't see how it's possible for anyone to carve out a 'sound Brexit deal'.   If your own house is in order, then fair enough.  Thing is, our own country is completely divided, and we think we can make some sort of go of it?  Laughable.  Our internal strife will be our undoing, while the EU march on and see a bigger picture.

Ha ha, Tories have panicked over the reaction to social care. Going to be a cap after all...

Strong and stable though, yeh?

However, if some "greedy Tory pensioners" are switching their votes, I'm very happy.

The problem is, Labour aren't proposing any meaningful reform. Raising taxes won't fix this problem. Something more fundamental is required.

I agree the manifestos really need to be read in full. This business about social care has not been explained. At the moment if you are in a care home and you run out of savings your house is either sold or has a lean on it. If you cared for at home lit is not included in your assets and the state will pay when you run out. This new system makes it fairer and you don't lose everything to pass on as you do now. I have just researched this thoroughly as my aunt has moved into a care home.


I wonder where exactly the money for tuition fees is coming from. Tax rises and corporation tax rises are already accounted for. We would be a bankrupt country before you knew it.

There are actually some pretty interesting things in both the Conservative and Labour manifestos. A pity people don't read them - there could be some interesting debates.
Saying and doing, are two totally different things, I feel.  Talk is cheap when it comes to Politics.  Delivering promises is way, way more difficult in any Political arena, no matter which Party you pledge allegiance to.  People probably don't read the Manifestos because they have experience of knowing that very little promised comes to fruition.  Political apathy.
