    Those parents were the spogs. Pop down there and take a look, it’s not difficult to see the issues, which have absolutely nothing to do with immigrants, just to be crystal clear.

    That’s all nothing but uninformed bile and prejudice of the sort that comes from a small mind. This fart won’t be responding unless you can say something interesting and non abusive.

    The key term in that is "seem". As often, the problem is with the perception given (or often created) via the media. e.g. cherry picking specific staments by one person or another, often out of context. In any genuinely democratic party you'll find members arguing over differences, and some with have more 'extreme' views than others. That doesn't make *all* the views party policy, or even then something the leadership would enact given the chance.

    Agreed. I’ve said all along this will not make the Labour manifesto as reported as it is quite clearly bonkers and a vote-loser, as the poll here indicates. I very much doubt there will be anything in there at all on private schools.

    I suspect you're correct. I was tempted up-thread to suggest people wait for the manifesto before trying to criticise actual *policy* proposals. Just as in the past I've kept suggesting people actually listen to the full speeches of Corbyn, etc, and avoid what the media claim was 'said'. I'd suspect you could cite cases where LD policies are distorted, ignored, etc, so will have some idea what the LP may face in this regard.

    Al that said, I have no idea what the manifesto will contain. So maybe they will go round shooting all the first born of the wealthy...

    I included myself in the 'fart' comment but if you think that an audio forum is going to change the world crack on and enjoy playing a victim of highly offensive abuse in the word 'fart' :rolleyes:
