@D.A.F.C I see the above, and feel like I should point out that I wasn't trying to be out of line when I got involved, I was however pointing out that I thought you were out of line on this subject. I agree that you shouldn't stop posting. No one wants an echo chamber on here, it wasn't personal nor will I use it a a stick to beat you with elsewhere. Just draw a line under it and try to figure out the best way to use this forum as a healthy outlet. All the best you fife c**t.

I agree with everything you say. I don’t know why I lash out with daft stuff on here and expect a good reaction. 
I must come across as a fanny and reactionary but sometimes when you’re cornered and don’t know what to do you lash out maybe?

Dont think I’ve intentionally hurt or upset anyone and tbh the way this forum is controlled and moderated is great and haven’t ever felt unfairly treated. Even when I’m constantly repeating the same thing about work someone tries to provide a solution.

Good man. Do post more in the depression thread, everyone in there will offer decent advice if they can.

I don’t think Boris Johnson and the Tories are going to sell off the NHS and give us a US style healthcare system. I’m not saying they are any good or that I’m going to vote for them but I think the rhetoric on it has become a bit over egged.

Labour, ("respect the vote" rebel brexiteer, voted remain Justin Madders). Nap. Amarite?
Yes, I have listened to his reasoning & I agree with his stance. He believes that we must & will leave but it cannot be under No Deal circumstances or a rush job which is why he has voted like he has in Parliament. His Constituency voted to leave so he respects that is the will, he is a very goid local MP & I suspect he really does not like those currently in charge of the party.

What is it that the tories have said or done that has you thinking they won’t?
To me, they’ve made it pretty clear that there’s thinking and given their links to private healthcare companies set to cash in it would make sense for them to.

Sticking with the politics theme. Corbyn actually comes across as a decent guy. I'm not a Labour voter but you've got to wonder about the power of the Tory media machine that they have managed to vilify someone to the extent that a left-leaning individual is surprised that he doesn't appear like a crazy Marxist when you look at him objectively.

I'm still unconvinced about this supposed rampant anti-semitism as well...

I think that is exactly what they will do.  It'll just be out of the headlines, bit by bit, quietly.... but definitely.

He is a decent guy.  He's spent his parliamentary life holding his own party to account, as well as the Tories.

And he's spent his working life fighting injustices.  

This is what scares the Tories, their backers in the media, and also those in his own party  who just know how to put on their slick , smiley faces.

Unpopular opinion amongst my group of pals certainly, but I think so many well meaning (and not so well meaning) people are obsessed with seeing political discourse through the social media tit for tat bubble, and completely neglect the day to day, real life stuff.

I’ve hopefully managed to turn a couple of family round to voting SNP just by understanding their priorities/concerns and suggesting why I think voting my way would benefit them.

Not enough people taking the time to put their phones down, engage with friends and family who are undecided/apathetic and have proper conversations.

In my experience, as much as these things can be discussed, your average man/woman turns off when people start banging on about fascists, media conspiracies etc.

One of the big reasons it’s not going to go well next week, IMO.

I just don't discuss politics with people anymore. Mainly because it's never usually a discussion/debate it's "I'm SNP, vote for them" or "f**k the SNP".

The worst thing about Scotland's inevitable IndyRef2 is that we'll have to suffer the utter shite that comes from both sides again.

Is there not some sort of political sub forum you can all post this inane shit in?

I read something about this which was claiming they would sell the NHS but would do it very slowly and systematically meaning you wouldn't really notice until it was to late to stop it, wish I could remember where i found it but that is certainly what I believe they'll do now if given the chance.

think this is about right, yeah, leading to death by a thousand cuts for the NHS as we know it.

They’re like two hundred cuts in to death by a thousand cuts. The NHS isn’ going to turn up on Ebay but if the Tories win next week then it’ll be unrecognisable and probably unsalvageable in a decade.

Literally the one place I don’t discuss politics is on here haha. For that very reason. There’s no rationale or debate. I’ll stick to finishing my politics degree and getting proper debate through that.
