    Thank you Admin.

    While you are feeling so generous towards us political tragics could you also see your way clear to bringing back our friends from exile?

    Please.

    Good try but I don’t think this will happen as most of them were National supporters that got the boot and reinstating them would not go down very well with the Opposition supporters on here .

    Deleted because my witty comment might be misconstrued.  ?

    Bsoper, your provocations will have to be ignored. It’s a pity really because you leave yourself wide open to ridicule but there you go.

    Obviously you don’t want this thread to be reinstated. Perhaps you might think about renaming yourself Canute?

    The tide does seem to be turning doesn’t it.?

    Politics today eh. What can we in N.Z learn from The shock result of  UK Elections?The turnout for young people 18-24 years olds was 66.4%The UK Parliament if this one survives  has the most diverse range of M.Ps ever with 207 women 51 from  an ethnic minority and at least 43 openly gay.Diversity is strength isn,t it?.And there are now 29 Conservative seats in England and Wales which have majorities of less than 2000 with 17 of these with majorities of less than 1000.These seats would take only the smallest swing  to Labour from the Conservatives for Corbyn to win them.So Theresa May is running a minority Government with 10DUP M.Ps  How will this work with Sinn Fein and The Northern Ireland peace process or Brexit.?

    Mobilising a million people who didn,t vote last time a  pretty  good incentive. for New Zealand perhaps.And the way the various  campaigns were run in the UK a great pointer to the successes and failures  there.Cheers 😀

    I sure do want this thread reinstated so that the truth about how well this Government has done since taking over from the other mob. I hope management keep a real tag on the Labour Party machine and their spokespersons which seemed to have had complete control over the previous political thread .

    I do.

    Thanks for asking Doogie.

    Trump.

    Macron.

    Brexit.

    Corbyn.

    People are voting against the status quo.

    The winds of change are blowing through the corridors of power.

    I find that very interesting and I care, a lot.
