A "conversation" that doesn't look at reducing the size of the grossly wasteful state isn't "honest" at all.

MPs should be talking about supply-side reforms needed to release wealth into the productive private sector, instead of listing ways for the state to pick yet more out wealth of our pockets.

In office, Gauke wanted to let more criminals evade prison. That's what's "reckless".

The 10-year proposal isn't "characteristic" at all. It's unrelated to unreasonably soft sentencing for violent and damaging crimes. Gauke's conflation of the two issues is the kind of sleazy argumentation that led to his political failure.

Gauke was part of the problem, exposing normal people to more and more risk of criminality, and rejecting the concerns of normal people as "tabloid".

Thank God we removed him.

Whichever the UK chooses.

It's international "law", and therefore politics. There is no authority to enforce it.

"Way" to do what?

We now have peer-reviewed science demonstrating that the most restrictive interventions have done nothing to stop the virus.

It doesn't matter what your personal prejudices are. They don't change the fact that letting a member of any non-vulnerable group jump the queue puts a vulnerable person at increased risk of death. Anecdotes and prejudice aren't good enough evidence to take such a step.

You appear to be making up things I never wrote, then pretending I wrote them.

The people of Manchester never wanted a mayor, and said No when the question was put in a referendum.

A Conservative government that wanted to do something popular with the people of Manchester would give Burnham the GLC treatment.

>> " Why are the anti-Chinese government campaigners behind the amendment set upon erecting the highest legal bar that they would have to jump"

Because they're not expecting to really need to jump it.

They're expecting an activist judge who will make a political determination on flimsy evidence.

You know, I think there's a slight chance Ed Miliband could be Labour leader again.

Starmer's going to bomb. Who else have they got?

The Mayor of Manchester was invented by Cameron and Osborne.

The people of Manchester rejected the idea, but still the wets foisted it upon them.

There's a lot less spam than there are anonymous leftist trolls.

This site would benefit greatly from a real-names-only comment policy, enforced by photo ID verification.

The site’s blog posts aren't anonymous, or made under fake names. There’s no reason below-the-line comments should be any different.

That would sort out the spammers and the trolls.

Bus and taxi drivers aren't "less fortunate". They have decent jobs that can support a family.
