Local Elections (May 2019) and Council Matters / Re: Voting for Brexit

I am impressed with what she has done over the last year or two.    However voting for her risks putting Corbyn in power, and keeping him out of power is my number one aim when deciding how to vote.

I am no supporter of Corbyn - I agree that he is not fit to be prime minister. However, the only alternative (Johnson) is also unfit to be prime minister. So we have a choice between two men who are clearly not up to the job. One will give us a hard Brexit, the other will hold a referendum between a softer Brexit and remain. It’s a no brainer!

Local Issues / Re: Land at the end of Pear Tree Close, Marple Bridge

Having to negotiate the junction near Ludworth school in rush-hour, the thought of scores of extra vehicles attempting to use Pear Tree Close fills me with dread. More importantly, there would be extra hazard for the school-children in an already vehicle-laden area.  I dearly hope that this development can be resisted.

My political views are quite similar, Andy, but we need to vote intelligently, ie tactically, to have any chance of avoiding five more years of this duplicitous Tory party.
I left the Labour Party due to Corbyn's historic anti-EU views, I am a Remainer as I believe leaving to be a massive mistake, so have no problems voting for the Libdem.

I really struggle with this working class tory schtick / daily mail playbook.

We bailed out the banks during a global recession, we've endured years of austerity that has decimated services, schools, lives and hope in may areas. Most of my working life has seen me pay considerable tax (high rate tax payer) but all the institutions we should hold dear broken down and sold off.

We're being told by millionaires and billionaires that we can't afford a decent health service, public transport comparable to other European countries and a progressive tax system where the richest will pay more. compared to what we have got and what has happened over the past decade i'm more than happy to chance a labour government.

From what I saw yesterday and in the leaders debates the day before Labour has a plan, has a vision and some hope - the other parties don't. You have 3 shades of Tory - the remain wing (libDem) the one nation group in the middle and the Far Right nutters (Brexit Party)

So, as i've said before, Brexit is the conclusion of anger and depression not caused by the EU but by the failed neo-liberal model. As such i'll be voting Labour on the 12th, will accept  that i'll contribute a bit more but in return will live in a country that is generally more happy, has well funded schools, good clean transport and isn't the US' b**ch.

I understand your comments and feeling about Ms Smart but I think we have to accept that since the last election she has stuck with it, got herself elected to Stockport Council and has become involved in a wide range of local organisations.

I am impressed with what she has done over the last year or two.    However voting for her risks putting Corbyn in power, and keeping him out of power is my number one aim when deciding how to vote.   This sums up my reasons for not liking Corbyn, see https://www.itv.com/news/2019-11-26/labour-party-antisemitism-jeremy-corbyn-chief-rabbi-labour-attack-dont-have-to-believe-corbyn-antisemitic-to-see-attack-harmful-robert-peston/

I just don’t believe that anyone who is still at the top of the Labour party has the skills to carry out half of what is in their manifesto.    Government is about choosing what to do, Labour has proven with the  manifesto (and promises since) that they are not willing to make chooses about where to put the nations limited resources.

As to the LibDems, I would also find it hard to vote for them due to them saying any man who says he thinks he is a woman should be using the same open showers and changing rooms as my wife at gyms etc.    The Labour party at least acknowledges this is an issue.

Local Issues / Re: Marple Swimming Pool currently closed

And whilst we wait, Romiley's got issues.  Both pools were closed on Sunday apparently, and the small pool's been closed today and apparently will be tomorrow.  I hope we're not going to see another local pool abruptly shut down for years on end!

I asked the council and got this response by email: ( 20th Nov)

Hi Phil
I would hope that we would be providing a public update in the next 2-3 weeks.  The design work we commissioned has now been completed and we are currently looking at the financial modelling and funding options.

I asked the other day when I was picking up groceries at the Co-op and they will be staying there.

And on the issue of the Co-op's grocery prices - I went into Asda with a friend a while back. (I don't use Asda myself as I don't approve of its parent company's attitude to its suppliers and staff). I was shocked at how expensive their food is! Co-op for me -

My Co-op savings over the year paid for a weekend in a hotel when I was attending a reunion last October!
Very good coop for you then
