    Both parties are promising similar things and both have caused raised eyebrows at the IFS.

    Seems they fit you, because they're a bunch of billy bullshitters as well.

    There appear to be other options, in most areas. It wasn't just May, it was Cameron and Osborne as well. They became a little less shitty with it when May was PM and Hammond was Chancellor.

    And if flipping burgers doesn't give you enough dosh, Working Tax Credits and Housing Benefit will help. Be careful though, flipping burgers every day could give you RSI, and you might need to claim Personal Independence Payment too. Good job you have that free broadband or you might get bored and your mental health could suffer.

    Oh. c'mon. If May had personally sacked me and I'd sworn to spend my life canvassing against the tories because of it, i'd have changed my mind after tonight. Corbyn was even squirming at his 4 day week bollocks! He flatly denied, again, to answer on how he'd campaign about his own brexit plans. I think i was actually embarrassed by/for him tonight. BoJo might have been bad, I wouldn't know, as I was reeling at Corbyn every time he spoke.

    What a shower of shit this election is...

    I don't have any particularly affinity to Corbyn, but nobody came out of the debate tonight as a winner; Corbyn lacks leadership and Johnson just regurgitates soundbites and tries to bumble into people's "awww, he ain't that bad!" books. They're both shit and the UK deserves better.

    Or does it...

    The most important thing about voting is to THINK, rather than be taken in by 'promises', none of which are to be believed. In 5 years time what do you think the state of the country will be under the 3 possible PMs. You may be wrong, but at least you tried.

    I know where my vote is going.

    THINK back to the last couple of times you cast it that way - did things turn out how you expected?

    I already know too. And, as I've said many times: I don't believe their promises.

    Well, one of them has already had 9 years head start and doesn't seem to have anything to show for it.

    Which one of these "has already had 9 years head start"?

    Or perhaps you didn't THINK and are instead replying to some other imaginary question?

    Ah yes, that'll be it.

    That's why we've got the shower of shite that we have

    Or perhaps you just stabbed delightedly at your quote and highlight buttons as usual.

    You really couldn't work it out for yourself?
