The party says it would tax the "wealthiest" to cut hospital waiting times if it wins the election.

Fuck spending more money on the NHS, I'll happily vote for anyone who promises to go in and streamline it. Politicians keep talking about throwing more money at it as if it'll fix the major issues, but it won't. Nepotism is rife, hiring is painfully slow, redeploying staff who are unable to perform their job or who's job has been made redundant can take years, their supply chain has almost no competition leading to ripoff prices for basic goods, middle management is massively bloated in some cases I've seen managers who's sole job is to manage another manager.

You can throw as much money at the NHS as you like, but they'll just piss it up the wall unless you go in there and start curtailing the waste.

Men, women and children carry the traditional flaming barrels through the streets of Ottery St Mary.

Darwinism at work.

Getting on the housing ladder is challenging, but what options are there for first-time buyers?

A couple living with their parents, both saving could buy a house anywhere they wanted, except London. Why so many people insist on living in that overpriced smog covered shit-hole is beyond me when there's an abundance of nicer, cheaper places across the rest of the UK.

The French president laments a lack of commitment by the United States, Nato's main guarantor.

They're trying to undermine the US and NATO because the more threatening the US seems, and the less likely it seems they'll recieve NATO protection, the more likely it is the people will seek protection from the EU and it's proposed army, and if the EU controls your army, they control your country.

The problem is Macron is a fuckwit who wouldn't know subtlety if it bit him on the arse which is why Merkel is walking his comments back, and no doubt giving him a telling off in private. It's going to be hard for anyone other than the US, UK, Greece, Estonia or Poland to criticize NATO given everyone else isn't paying their full dues.

The first minister tells a Glasgow rally it is time to break away from the "chaos of Westminster".

What sturgeon fails to realise is her party didn't get in because they're well liked or particularly represent a burning desire for Scots to leave the UK. They got in because the Scots just really fucking hate the Tories and to a lesser extent Labour.

They're a protest vote masquerading as the revolutionary voice of the Scottish people.

The Tory leader also hits back at Donald Trump's criticism of his Brexit deal, in a BBC interview.

So now we have to make a decision.

Do we all vote for Boris and his less than fantastic brexit deal, it'll get us out of the EU but at what cost?

Or do we vote for The Brexit Party and gamble, we could split the vote allowing labour or the lib dems more seats, or we could force a Tory/Brexit Party government that has to make the leave deal more palatable or drop it all together and leave with no deal.

CEO Jack Dorsey says the reach of political messages "should be earned, not bought".

I mean they're obviously doing this to mitigate the risk of being implicated in bringing further populist governments to power. They can't be stuck trying to simultaneously placate their woke friends, the people and various governments if they just refuse to participate. Personally I'm happy for them to stay the fuck out of politics, if the alternative is them pushing silicon valley's authoritarian brand of 'woke' bullshit on us.

Activists say Mahatma Gandhi was anti-black and should not be celebrated in Manchester.

Why is it every time one of these fringe nutjob activist groups pops up the BBC leaps to give them front page coverage.

The crazies weren't that much of an issue when the press just ignored them.

Matt Hancock says there is "absolute clarity" on the science and not being immunised puts others at risk.

Not a good idea. I'm all for people being vaccinated, I have a healthy disdain for people who put others at risk due to crackpot conspiracy theories. However, the government should not be in the realm of mandating medical treatment and forcing it on people will just make the crazies more resolute in their beliefs.
