Can anyone recommend a nice office chair?
at 13:04 18 Nov 2019

Not for the office, at home, but something nice and comfortable for sitting at my desk writing... but also stylish.

I'm a bit clueless as to where to start looking.

I start CBT next week...

I did it and it changed my life. Don't know how long you have booked but I did it for a full year. It does take time to see the effects.

To give an idea of the success, one of my first tasks was to go on a bus for one stop. Towards the end I was taking up karate, learning to drive and booking my place at uni to do a degree as a mature student.

Before all this I never knew you could actually change your brain/change the way you think.
I also echo most of the other thoughts in this thread.

Good luck.

Oh I totally get the "I'm alright, Jack" mentality of many in this country. I don't think that's anything to be proud of, but I understand it.

Maybe I'm a bit naive to want a better world for everyone rather than just protecting what I myself have.

A mildly amusing response but doesn't answer the fact that you appear to not remember Labour being in power.

I didn't realise the election had already happened. How on earth did I miss that?!

I don't think I've posted any opinions as facts. I'm very big on facts, that's why I end up in so many rows on here!

I agree with a lot of what you say, I just feel the public have been conned by the Tories. There's just so many things they've got wrong, or downright lied about, so voting for them (particularly those who end up worse off after voting for them) just seems baffling. Like turkeys voting for Christmas.

But you're right, maybe idiots is a bit strong.

What's odd about it? Can you counter it by telling me what's great about voting Tory? What things have they done in the lest 10 years have been great?

Erm, they trIed to push it through but it was stopped by the permanent secretaries - the people it was trying to get rid of. Funny that!

The point is, Glassers was saying about the uproar if the Tories tried to pull such a stunt - AND THEY DID... MENTIONED IN HIS OWN LINK!

Glassers has been hoisted by his own petard!

Edit;
His quote: "I imagine if the Tories were mulling this over you’d say we were sleepwalking into fascism."

Would love to see Glassers' response to this. In your own time Glassers, no rush.

Your opening premise, like most of what you post, is disingenuous wrongness.

I disagree, for the reasons stated. If you think the smear campaign by the right wing press hasn't had an effect you're deluded.

And frankly, you've added to it.

I didn't say that. Another one (along with your up-arrower) who's failed to read properly.

I'm saying if they vote Tory they're an idiot.

If it's 5 more years of the Tories it will show that this country is full of idiots and the smear campaign was a huge success.

LOL. That's all very emotive but it's a non answer - nothing to do with the thing I was replying to Glassers about. Just like the other day when you said that tweet had been debunked, I proved he was wrong on at least one bit, hadn't debunked anything, and was basically putting his own spin on things, and all you did in response was downarrow.

Like many on here, when you can't answer a point because you've been caught bang to rights, you just run away or leaving something wishy washy.

It's a shame you don't like what the Labour Party's become. But that's not a reason to join the smear wagon spreading nonsense. Sticking to your principles doesn't require that and you'd get a lot more respect for it (from me at least).

Cheers J2. There's many reasons, that I haven't got time to go into as I'm at work, but to address your points quickly;

Economy - Plenty of experts aren't saying it will be a disaster. And how much of a disaster are they likely to cause in 5 years anyway? I like Alan Sugar but what is he basing that on? Is it, like my dad, based on Labour effing up years ago? If it is, that's not a reason to think the latest lot will be the same. They're all new people. Only the name Labour is the same.

Anti-semitism - while it's a problem, the general public's perception of it has been proven to be 300 times worse than it actually is. And it is being investigated. Corbyn's been a bit slow dealing with it but most is people on social media (who could be anyone). He's a pacifist, has been all his life, and clearly isn't a racist either.

The promises - I agree are starting to sound far fetched, but again we need to see what's actually in the manifesto.

Confidence in the front bench - hard to say until they're given a go.

All the right wing/Tory scaremongering, I think, is largely just that. Labour's policies aren't THAT radical that they're going to destroy the UK in 5 years. Lots of their policies seem sensible to me, and for the greater good. Common sense stuff that is designed to make the country better for everyone. The Tories are well known for looking after their mates at the top.

Labour also created the NHS and aren't going to let that go to the wall.
