I agree with mikecg that its not enough just to slap a ban on. You may have to designate an area that's 'ok' for drinkers to congregate and then people who are near that are going to seriously resent it, so it'd need alot of thought. Slightly off topic but in a similar vein perhaps, I was reading so...

I think that Labour have decided they don't want it. I suspect so. What I don't understand is why you, as a Labour supporter, find that acceptable? Are you happy that the party you voted for and in which you obviously place a lot of faith have decided to allow those nasty Tories to govern? It's not...

Well word on the street is now for a full-scale coallition between the libdems and the conservatives. Even rumours of clegg for deputy PM! Very surprising stuff if true, I was expecting a much more arms length relationship. Whereas it looks like not just getting into bed but all tucked in and snugg...

I think that Labour have decided they don't want it.

Instead now they can put their feet up and watch the Tory-Libdem comedy show!

No worries – they'll come back stronger than ever in the end :D

I think its pretty typical of our politics, that we don't really have a clue about what is going on at the moment. Don't you think we should know what the negotiations are? Shouldn't we know what trade-offs are being offered? The Tories are desperate for power, and would give anything to be in numb...

True, Labour stand to lose out the most from PR (at first at least). Which just goes to show they must be the only party that actually care about the country and fairness, not just what suits them. I'd say it just goes to show how desperate the current leadership is to stay in power for five more y...

I know I'll regret this but why is Brown so loathful? Is it because he has a weird smile, or a funny eye, or that jaw thing? Is it because he doesn't look like Cleg-eron? Or because his media savvy is non existent? Or because the Tory media you read take such pleasure at ridiculing him? I am actual...

The most likely party to end up in oblivion under a PR system is Labour. It would bolster the LD vote, as people would be more free to vote how they like, rather than voting tactically.

I think it will end up being a Lib Lab pact. yay! Firstly there'll be a minority Labour government informally supported by the Lib Dems (they'll have to get rid of Brown as part of the deal), then there'll be a referendum on proportional representation within weeks follwed by a proper general electi...

Yup, I'd agree with digime2007.

Labour have definitely made mistakes, no doubt about that, but I'm sure alot of lessons have been learned in the past couple of years.

And its really good to see a list of Labour's achievements for once.

There are reasons I want to see Labour out. 1. The illegal Iraq war and now Afghanistan, These enemies wear no uniform but their belief runs through their veins and the threat they pose to our way of life is far greater than what we faced during our history. The Tories supported the war, so why'd y...

I'm voting Labour all the way. Lib Dems I don't mind at all. Conservatives I would never ever vote for. They turn my stomach. And I remember their last go in government only too well, what a total disaster. Anyone thinking of voting Tory I'd say remember 'Dame' Shirley Porter?! That's the true face ...

I'd imagine it does a good trade most of the time due to the reliably high standard of the food and great service. That reminds me I must go again soon! Inte...

There are essentially three different financial costs of EU membership: 1) The cash that we send to the EU. That is £45m per day/£16.4bn per year. 2) The net cash that we pay the EU, i.e. the payments less the grants we receive. That is £21m per day/£7.6bn per year. 3) The cost that the Tax Payers ...

Juwlz Do not forget that the EU ties up all our lives. It controls our economy, the level of legal immigration and most of our laws. That would be fine if it were not for the fact that there is no democracy in the EU, i.e. all the EU laws are made by the 27 commissioners who are not elected and can...
