Not in Newport



Must be because the people of Newport are happy with the bang up job they're doing.

Will the Conservatives get more seats than the rest of the parties put together?

Will they get more than 50% of the overall vote?

With over 30% of the nation not voting (last general election) and the other parties taking Labour votes, the Tories must be laughing up their sleeves.

Latest poll indicates the gap has narrowed has narrowed to 5%.

With over a week to go, do we have another Trump/Macron surprise coming?

Is anyone else sickened at the sight of Theresa May and her mates praising the bravery and dedication of our emergency services, whilst at the same time, cutting their numbers and capping their pay.

No more than Corbin who seems to not want to get involved in anything overseas that would involve a difficult decision

Agree with you but are you going to vote for the Green candidate?
As in Australia it should be legal that all should vote

I don't think that meddling in other sovereign Countries affairs have done us much good over the years, Its about time that we learnt that we are not the World Police.

Totally pissed off. As usual May gets the wrong end of the stick, we don't want less human rights, we need more funding for increased and better intelligence-lead policing.

If you or anyone you know ever use public services (NHS, schools, public transport, utilities etc) and earn anything up to say 70k a year then you will be better off under a Labour government than a Tory one.

Fantastic to see Labour holding both Newport seats and smashing it across Wales. Much like in my neck of the woods, if anyone had any doubt that London is a Labour city then today has driven it home.

The other week I had gout in my knee

Formula One bores me rigid

How many England cricketers were not born,brought up or come from South Africa?

I have just missed my bus

Today I travelled on the footplate of a steam engine

My gherkins are doing well and I have already pickled some

I have just tye dyed some shorts

I don't know what to eat tonight
