Hopefully “strategic” voting might just help us save this Island !

Me thinks the ones spouting populist claptrap appear to be the Conservatives… she’s got everything to lose and is useless at giving a straight answer – she would be chewed up in a live debate by all the parties…

Well certainly the Independent, (or more loosely the media,) would like them to have such a debate; personally I couldn’t care less not least because I finally stopped watching Television in despair and in disgust several years back.

I can’t really see it doing much good to either party and it certainly wouldn’t promote the kind of informed and critical debate that is now so desperately needed and so absent in the current dire political climate, (British politics is a broken system and an increasingly corrupt farce anyway,) where the far right are being portrayed as the, “middle ground,” and a really quite inoffensive man of mildly socialist leaning is caricatured daily as a dangerous terrorist.

“When a population becomes distracted by trivia, when cultural life is redefined as a perpetual round of entertainments, when serious public conversation becomes a form of baby-talk, when, in short, a people become an audience, and their public business a vaudeville act, then a nation finds itself at risk; culture-death is a clear possibility.”

Neil Postman, Amusing Ourselves to Death: Public Discourse in the Age of Show Business

May-Ahem is trying to dodge it as she can only ‘perform’ when given a script to go off.

She can’t defend her stance on many issues and rarely answers a straight question with a straight answer and always finishes off with a scripted insult.

She is a poor leader pretending to be a great one… and it will be obvious to even the diehards when in a debate.

Hear hear. Like the rest of the Tory front bench, Theresa May does nothing but sneer and laugh at serious issues, because she’s arrogant and frankly doesn’t give a flying monkey’s toss about the plight of the working families. Standard Tory. Nothing more.

The bigger question is how do people like you manage to escape the education system?
Normal people do have a say – and even people who are less than normal, apparently.
The far left in this country is all but extinct – Corbyn is NOT far left.
Your supreme silliness is indicated by the fact that you call Corbyn and his Party Nazis: For your information, the Nazis are Far Right.

Crosby has instructed May not to participate in a live head to head unscripted debate on TV with the other leaders as he knows she wouldn’t be able to cope with this scenario. Sturgeon would make mincemeat of her even though Corbyn and to a lesser extent Farron would waffle. Crosby is instructing her – and all other Tory MPs – as his tried and trusted method simply to repeat certain mantras ad infinitum – e.g. collation of chaos – so that the great unthinking masses in true 1984 style repeat it in their sleep.

I believe the Israeli lobby is extremely powerful and has too much influence on our government. The Muslim lobby is nowhere near as powerful or embedded in the system.  Hopefully Corbyn will, when Prime Minister, seriously curtail the influence of all lobbyists especially corporate lobbyists. And also make such things transparent and in the public eye.
