    UK General Election 2019

    An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had recently failed an entire class. That class had insisted that Corbyn's vision of socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer. The professor then said, “OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Corbyn's ideological plan”. All grades will be averaged and everyone will receive the same grade so no one will fail and no one will receive an A…. (substituting grades for £ 's )something closer to home and more readily understood by all). After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy. As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little. The second test average was a D! No one was happy. When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F. As the tests proceeded, the scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else. To their great surprise, ALL FAILED and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great, but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed. It could not be any simpler than that. There are five morals to this story: 1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. 2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. 3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. 4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it! 5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation...and absolutely why on the 12th of December I will not be voting Labour !

    The one thing tat has always got to me about this tragedy.....was that Liverpool fans, Liverpool families involved have never accepted that the fans outside causing the severe crushing, especially the ticketless ones, were responsible to some degree for a domino effect.

    Nah it’s Scottish football the money is shite. Yeah I get what your saying and it was played in March a few times but honestly it’s a great time for a final. I for one am really looking forward to it as I managed to get a tickets going with my three boys the first time in a few years we have all managed to get to a game together

    Lunch time kick off and once again on a shitty plastic pitch. With Celtic winning well yesterday this is another must win to stay level on points and hopefully get a good few goals in the bag. I'm going for 1-4 Gers.

    That is massively significant, a 10% swing ffs, who could predict that? They have held 2 safe seats with a fairly big vote loss along the way.

    A man wanted to get married. He was having trouble choosing among three likely candidates. He gives each woman a present of $5,000 and watches to see what they do with the money. The first does a total makeover. She goes to a fancy beauty salon, gets her hair done, new makeup; buys several new outfits and dresses up very nicely for the man. She tells him that she has done this to be more attractive for him because she loves him so much. The man was impressed. The second goes shopping to buy the man gifts. She gets him a new set of golf clubs, some new gizmos for his computer, and some expensive clothes. As she presents these gifts, she tells him that she has spent all the money on him because she loves him so much.. Again, the man is impressed. The third invests the money in the stock market She earns several times the $5,000. She gives him back his $5,000 and reinvests the remainder in a joint account. She tells him that she wants to save for their future because she loves him so much. Obviously, the man was impressed. The man thought for a long time about what each woman had done with the money he'd given her. Then he married the one with the biggest tits.

    Yeah I understand that but can't really let @Mr Magnificent get to you? I know @Harold has not know @Mr Magnificent for as long as we have but I think he knows what he's like and in my opinion everyone just needs to take @Mr Magnificent with a pinch of salt. That's all I'm saying.

    USA reducing by 10%, whilst the other's i mentioned have more than doubled, trebled or even quadrupled, must be applauded surely. So in relative terms . I can say pish BTW, cos i am half Scottish. Maybe before you make silly posts, you should do some research, or at least have some knowledge of what you are babbling on about. How can one country seriously justify creating 28% of the world's C02 emissions?? As i asked previously why don't Rebellion Extinction protest in China/India, where some could argue it would be justified?. Instead they prefer to whinge in Nations that are actually actively doing something about it. @Mr Magnificent, If you have any constructive to add to the thread, i will happily read it.

    The Labour Party

    Link?? Meanwhile, the polls suggest that Boris Johnson is by far the more popular party leader, compared to Labour's Jeremy Corbyn. The YouGov poll for the Sunday Times puts the Conservatives on 45%, with Labour on 28%, while the Deltapoll survey for the Mail on Sunday also puts the Tories on 45%, with Labour on 30%. According to Opinum, the Tories lead Labour by 44% to 28%, while SevantaComRes for the Sunday Telegraph puts the Conservatives on 41%, compared to Labour's 33%. The polls also suggest that the Conservatives are consolidating their support among Leave supporters and the working class. James Crouch, political polling expert at Opinium, said: "For the past six months the Conservatives have consolidated their position amongst Leave voters. "Especially since Boris Johnson became Prime Minister, week after week we have noticed more Brexit supporters falling in line behind the Conservatives. "It might not be a new story, but now we are in a territory we haven’t seen before, with unprecedented numbers of Leave voters backing the Tories from all political backgrounds. That’s what gives them their 16-point lead, the third we have recorded in two months. "Ultimately the trends we have seen for weeks have continued because very little about the public’s perception of the leaders and their policies has changed. In the following weeks the leader debates and the unveiling of the manifestos might move the dial, but to what extent remains to be seen." The poll findings come less than four weeks before polling day. But Labour will take comfort from the fact that the party managed to make huge advances in the final weeks of the 2017 campaign, following the publication of both main parties' manifestos
