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?

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 .#1625031arandar June 14, 2017 at 8:45 pm
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.?

Who cares?#1625055drlivingstone June 14, 2017 at 9:59 pm
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 .#1625066arandar June 15, 2017 at 7:42 am
Thanks for asking Doogie.
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.
