Voter ID
at 18:43 11 May 2021

Of course, none of you commenting could be bothered to look up the facts. Instead there is the usual anti-tory drivel that pervades this board, with some of you making out like its a huge conspiracy by those 'nasty tories'.

Anyone without the required I.D. will be issued what they need, free of charge.

Also, each year there is usually at least one council, or other election, that ends in a tie, with the Returning Officer deciding the method of choosing the winner - coin toss, straws, pistols at dawn etc
I believe there were 186 counts of electoral fraud in the last election so why do most of you consider this a non-issue?

Well I guess Kier Starmer should resign?

I'm not a Labour supporter, I'm a Conservative.
I was correct about your outdated attitude towards all tories, your narrative is is completely misguided and shows how desperate the situation is for labour.

Anybody who dismisses millions of people as thick because they don't share your views is student-like politics.

Keep it up though, if makes it easier to win more council seats in places like Ipswich 😁

Starmer out? There was actually a 3 point swing towards Labour
at 09:40 9 May 2021

That's a really desperate way to use stats to produce a result you are looking for.
To imply that there is a swing to labour based on comparing ward results aggregated against those with different boundaries and electorates is the most stupid take I've seen for ages.

Labour lost over 300 councillors and control of 7 councils. Once again it lost in areas for the 1st time ever.

Trying to convince yourselves it was a victory is a blinkered as it comes and reflects the pompous attitude of the current Labour Party, dominated by middle class graduate who believe they're better than the rest of us.

Your attitude is one of the many reasons Labour are doing so badly.
Calling huge swathes of people from many different walks of life dim & bigots alienates the party from many of its' core base.
The incorrect stereotypes that you and many other aloof Labour supporters use to talk about brexit & vote leave will not win you any support outside your echo chambers that the left seem to love.

Why would voters you constantly denigrate ever vote Labour?

Apart from any of the other scandals, if Boris really said
at 16:52 27 Apr 2021

I have just read through the whole thread and did so with a developing grin on my face.

Christ alive some of you think you own the moral high ground don't you? You look down with scorn on those with a differing opinion and generalise about huge swathes of the population (mostly Conservative voters).

There are so many that seem to post from a position of knowledge but clearly just repeat parrot-fashion what they have read in a newspaper or seen on the TV. I doubt that many of you (possibly none) are actually involved in politics but to read some of the posts you would think there is a wealth of political knowledge on this board - there isn't.

The hypocriscy written in this thread is astounding - last year you wouldn't believe Cummings if he told you the sky was blue but now you lap up his every word and hang off it like some starry-eyed teenagers.

Admit it - you have no idea what was said, or not said.

None of you have any clue if rules were even broken regarding the work done in 11 Downing St.

There are 3 years until the next general election - suck it up - it's going to be a long 3 years for you all.

Cummings
at 13:26 25 Apr 2021

Great entertainment giggling at this thread.
Most on this board seem to be remainers
Most seem to despise tories

Yet so many of you claim to know Cummings motives, or what he's going to do next when in reality you haven't got a clue!

It's also an amazing level of hypocrisy that most on here didn't believe a word Cummings said last year but now he's attacking the government every word he says is treated as gospel.

This is another slur that just isn't cutting through with the public.

And as for some of the comments about the money spent on refurbishing 11 downing Street they border on the ridiculous. Others have spent far more, and used tax payers money but you can all keep pretending this is a massive scandal.

Don't stop though, I enjoy the entertainment of reading such nonsense, written by people who confuse opinion with facts

Government sleaze continues
at 23:03 22 Apr 2021

Once you find some actual sleaze and not just some wild accusations come back and tell us.

The only thing that's been proven to be wrong is the late announcement of a small number of tendered contracts. Even that was mostly ignored by the public who understood the unique circumstances.

I am sure that mistakes were made, contracts given to some who should never have got them, and money wasted. To insinuate that it's all some huge conservatives conspiracy to make money for themselves and their mates is based purely on political bias.

I bet you're spitting feathers that this isn't cutting through with the public!

I believe that most on this thread hate the tories so much that fail to see the actual problem with both Corbyn & Starmer; they don't resonate at all with the working class, labour's biggest vote base.
You've virtually lost the working class vote in huge areas of the country. Canvass any working class community and you will find 30-40% support for the conservatives, whereas before these 2 clowns conservatives works be lucky to get 5%.

Labour policies designed to win in more affluent metropolitan areas have been a disaster for labour's core voting base, and nobody in the party is doing anything about it.

Corruption you say......
at 15:01 12 Apr 2021

It's not corrupt though is it? Even the Guardian report (if you bothered to read past the headline) states that there is no suggestion any of the MP's broke the rules.

You've seen a sensational headline and attempted to make it more sensational without actually understanding that there is no rule breaking going on.
Hardly corruption is it?

Man, the right wing have really worked their magic on the poor...
at 12:38 11 Apr 2021

Isn't this called democracy?
The workers voted 2.5 to 1 to reject the proposal so they should be listened to.

I do find it amazing how many on this board think their own opinion to be worth more than those actually involved. Unions have struggled to represent their workers for decades and are mostly run for the benefit of a tiny minority. Many workers who've needed Union help when in a spot of bother find them to be toothless and unhelpful when it really matters.
Unions no longer have the power to collectively bargain so they really are just a waste of time

Price of garden landscaping advice please
at 20:24 21 Jan 2021

Sounds similar to work I had done about 5 years ago.

I had a 50 foot by 25 foot of slabs removed and a similar size of shrubs and bushes removed. All levelled and turfed.

Took 2 men 4.5 days and cost me £3.5k

Wondered how long it would take you to pipe up. The only thing correct in your drivel was the following;

They aren't my 1st two posts. I have been absent for a few years and couldn't resurrect my old username.

I gave up on here when it became a left-wing mob constantly attacking those who's opinions were different.

Sad really as this used to be an excellent football board but it has gone the way of many similar internet 'forums'. Taken over by a small rabid mob, some of which have multiple usernames, congratulating each other and getting their kicks from piling on to those with a differing view.

If that's what floats your boat then good for you.

Seems to be quite popular with the majority of Ipswich residents - just not on this left-wing echo chamber.

He's definitely more in touch with the people of Ipswich than you, if that's your attitude. I'm sure you will tell me I'm wrong but thats the problem with forums like this - full of -like-minded people who thinkeveryone else shares their views.

Key workers

The guidelines are perfectly clear for each Employer. You have to apply to be considered an 'essential' business.
If successful you then get letters to give to staff to then give to the schools.
Many manufacturing & distribution businesses are classed as essential.

It is entirely up to each school as to who they accept, and they have the right to stop any child attending who's parents do not have the correct paperwork

As usual with this echo chamber I see most posters seem to blame everything on the government and most claim to have far more knowledge then they actually do.

Just another usual day on the TWTD forum.
