there was new labour when it was in power they're benefit minister said he was going to stigmatise those on benefits, theres now the torys saying austerity can't be aimed at the rich or they and they're money will leave the country

the liberals on and off in opposition in my council area have supported residents objecting to housing for the homeless or mentally ill been built in areas

even soicialist worker will tell you people would be better off back in the old institutions, never forget my dads champagne socialist neighbour saying he'd be better off in hospital

Greens are pretty good on disability issues. And in general in my opinion. Trouble is actually getting them elected!

I wouldn’t have a clue how a new election would go. I won’t vote Tory if Theresa May is still standing. Def not labour if the xenophobic, IRA sympathiser Jeremy Corbin tries to lead us to another election .I used to be a liberal supporter cos they had done a lot in this area, but they don’t stand a chance of getting into power.

i was brought up a catholic, a lot are ira sympathisers, i'll be voting for corbyn, partly to get rid of the torys if possible, also from the look of the press campaign a lot of the top men are worried about paying more tax under some redistribution of wealth which i'm not going to object to

whether the american empire will be comfortable with socialists, they undermine them, then the socialists resort to repressive measures which the americam empire then uses as an excuse to attack them further

is it any surprise my credit rating is poor saying things like that

Sadly, the answer is probably, No.

I don't feel that any of the political parties represent me, either. Mostly, in the absence of the good and just society, we have to assert ourselves, argue our own case, and defend our corner if you like, wherever we are able. It's hard to do with the present criminally-diseased and hypocritical arrangements, and the plethora of arse-crack kissing and deviant bureaucrats who hold it up :)

If enough people voted for the green party they would get in but as usual there will be very few votes if at all.

Labour are on our side and are the best party to vote for and have more of a chance of getting in than the Green party.

The Tories hate people like us and only care about there own and do not represent none of you.

The democrats are probably as bad as the Tories.

I hope Hammond dies of a stroke while sitting in Parliament watching his evil grin slant sideways down his face. He is a bad man and I hope he dosen't become the next prime minister.

It was Tony Blair & Gorden Brown that were Tories in Labour clothing that were apart of it and I keep having to say that because people fail to see and blame Corbyn or Labour on the whole.

i hear labour on about tenancies for life, scares me, no way housing assocs can evict problem neighbours, as it is problem neighbours can force all the neighbours to move out

though i agree that tory section of the housing act is wrong, it's nice to know it can be used against the neighbour from hell

We need secure tenancies, and more council houses but the Tories just want houses for the rich and they want to sell off all council homes to greedy people.

are you in social housing? we don't need secure tenancies for problem neighbours who can make all the other, vulnerable themselves, neighbours life a misery

yes the torys don't want housing built, a shortage of housing raises the price benefiting those mainly tory voting homeowners

alll the owned housing in my area is having extensions loft conversions built, the sheer noise from the builders, my neighbours next door are having a loft conversion, gave me a plant, i don't think thats enough compensation for the banging drillling going on for weeks

I'm in social housing which is my 1700's palace I spent a lot of work making my home the way I want it. The Tories have already been discussing those with secure tenancies may lose them. Its like if you can't buy your council home then you lose it when the time comes.

Ever since the council property got sold underneath me, its been like living on a building site ever since because whats happening is when people move into it they are always doing work to it then selling it to the next person who then also doe's the same, more work then its sold again and it just continues.

Do they have a baby monitor? if so get a scanner and find out what frequency its using then torment them through the baby monitor and then they will think there house is haunted and move out. You'd be amazed on how stupid people are today.
