    You used voting behavior as an indicator that Unions are no longer relevant and then said it was not an indicator when it didn't support your point.

    First mistake...don't ever apply the laws of logic to any argument that Scara makes.

    I used a long term trend in voting (2 generations). interim fluctuations can mean absolutely anything.

    The trend is towards what would be slightly right of centre by traditional measures - that's now the new centre.

    I LOVE a good interim fluctuation. It can be the highlight of my month.

    Can you show that there is cause and effect? Nope so your trend showed diddly.

    Busy day in British politics. How slow is Corbyn? Now he's almost made Labour a remain party. He could have nipped the anti-semitism allegations in the bud. He didn't. Lord Triesman and Margret Hodge are not idiots or attention seekers. If they identify anti-semitism in Labour, then I respect them. They maybe exaggerating the issue. But any racism, no matter how trivial it appears on the surface, has to be called out.

    Then Boris is a Hunt. Who won? Does anyone care? Does Hunt actually want the job? He's probably planning to be the one who picks up the pieces post Boris. That's my guess.

    To be fair, Hunt has far more Draconian views than Johnson.

    Johnson is a man of principle - the principle that makes him PM.

    Hunt is a man of principles - just most of those principles are utterly abhorrent.

    Panorama tonight could (and should) be the end of those dangerous, anti-semitic cranks in charge of that brickshow.

    Nothing much to argue about there. The snooper's charter and the smoking ban are straight out of the lefty playbook, but I'm not sure you'll find many people voting against them.

    I don't think anyone serious would deny a general shift away from those communist policies of the 70s and Corbyn. It would take more than a blip for a couple of years to convince me that trend has reversed.

    Most forms of pure evil are rare in the modern world - society has evolved past most of them. Doesn't make them any less evil.

    Ha, ha, so wanting to put the railways and water into public hands is 'evil'? Okay, rightio... I guess the NHS is too? Last time I checked Corbyn still supported representative democracy and had not called for permanent revolution just yet. ha, ha! :confused:

    The trades unions and their attempts to extort honest taxpayers of their salaries.

    What are you so concerned about? You just said that that are irrelevant.
