I think my online translator's on the blink. It translated that as 'my ship that rests on the air abounds with eels'.

It's all very well for you Grammar School types, but the boys & girls at St Cohen's & All Angels only did woodwork or domestic science with their 3 R's

We're talking about Corbyn in this thread please.

Of course any recession will take time to get over, but thankfully it looks unlikely we'll have to worry about the damage Corbyn could do as PM. It's like people forget that every time a party has been in power for a while the next just blame everything on them, then swap places. I'm continuing to be blown away by the stupidity of the electorate thinking that only the Conservatives are bastards. All people in power are bastards with an agenda and will use whatever tactics they can to get into power.

Even better - you'll be able to be told there aren't any appointments available on your free internet!

If Labour are to win then it's critical they not mimic the Tory playbook, which from my distance appears to be their current plan.
Their strategy can only succeed by hammering Tory weak points (God knows there are enough) while concentrating resources instead of trying to be strong everywhere.
Simple phrases hammered home are far more effective than key note speeches by a leader still to gain the trust of many implying bigger give-aways than t'other parties.
Unfortunately, Labour appear to be playing Attrition with the Tories, and their Message isn't getting through, because all people see is Corbyn, not Labour's message.

Good points in there. It's a great summary of UK politics right now that the opposition leader is disliked not just from across the House but from all corners and behind him.
If Labour had an actual leader with a viable, sensible vision for the party they'd walk an election not dominated by Brexit.

Good to see you getting with the programme so quickly.

Also, top marks for recognising and acknowledging the 2 chief problems obstructing good oral health in the UK today, ie lack of supply and the deterrent effect of the current level of charging on those of lesser means. Neither insurmountable given a sensible approach to policy.
