Cympil you and a few others are on about how they will promise you the earth to get a few votes and then nothing materialises. Bearing in mind there is a general erection oops election :lol: :lol: :-

How long have we in the N.East been asking for the A1 to be made dual carriageway? Far too long, the number of deaths on this main route into Scotland is atrocious, well low and behold they are all saying now that if they elected they will dual the A1. Why now :lol: may I ask? Is it to reduce fatalities on this road or is it to grab a few votes from us simpletons(no pun intended :D ). I guarantee that whoever is elected into power the transformation of the A1 will never happen! People THINK God Damn you THINK!

Don't know but Wansbeck constituency as a whole (i.e. the former Wansbeck district plus Morpeth) was 98.8% white at the time of the last census (2001) and 2.1% of people were born outside the UK.

So do the 0.9% come from Mars? Ahhhhh that must be the percentage of politicians who rule this country :lol: :lol: :lol:

I'm thinking Merlin, and I think that even apart from the safety issue it's pretty atrocious that the principal road between the capital cities of two separate countries is so poor in our area. It's only 400 miles or so. Where in the "first world" are there two major cities so close together with substantial lengths of single lane highway between them?

Those countries must be at war or something! Well they probably are, but it's an economic and political war. Plenty of money can be found to build a politician's palace at the North end of the road, but no money to save lives. Why? Perhaps because there's no desire to help a Scot Nat. led government in England - it doesn't buy any votes.

At least the good people of the North East had the common sense to see through the regional assembly con. - even if the politicians then devised a work-around to frustrate the democratic will. One day that sort of stitch-up won't be quite so easy, and that day isn't too far off!

You mean the 0.9% over 100% that you get by adding 98.8% + 2.1%?

Remember that not everyone who's born in the UK is white and not everyone in Wansbeck who's white was born in the UK.

But then Bedlington was twinned with Mars for a brief period so you could be right.

A bit like Lavery's summing where a majority turns to a minority just because he doesn't agree with the outcome! :lol: :lol:

Monsta.......every opportunity????

Sorry to hear your old second choice leader is in hospital following his aeroplane crash. Not to make light but maybe he should have phoned the current UKIP leader (Parker) and put Thunderbirds on go........

I was speaking to somebody today who was telling me he was "always going to vote Labour no matter what".

Therein lies the problem I think. I asked the obvious "why" question and they told me they were a believer in not changing principles and that Labour would have done alright if it wasn't for the "Global Recession"

I'll not go into the "global" recession because I have a feeling 3G will have something to say on that.

If we are stupid enough to loudly exclaim a staunch allegiance to one particular party "no matter what" then what incentive do the politicians have to act in this area. They are naturally going to pay more attention to areas in which a few votes will cost them their seat.

Seriously Debra, Thatcher has a lot to answer for she broke the unions, sold everything off to private enterprise, now we are in another Dickensian era, where money men rule bosses can run roughshod over their employees, make more and more massive profits and still not pay decent wages and if you don't like it well leave. The return of the times of the workhouses, debtors prisons and people starving on the streets aren't far off! The money men get richer the poor get poorer, even more so if Cam the 'Man' gets into power. Think of Scrooge and you'll get the gist!

They(Tories) say that they will make the people on benefits work for their money! Where is he going to find 2.5 million jobs? And if he can why can't a decent wage be paid for doing this work? Also say, if I employ say 10 people at say a dustbin mans wages, why as an employer should I pay this if I could end their contracts and get 10 people off the dole to do their work and pay them NO wages as the Government would pay them to do the work for their dole money, costing me nothing, but still getting the work done and more profit for me! Thus increasing the dole figures as every employer with one Iota of sense will lay off his entire workforce then get their workforce off the dole and get the government to pay their wages. Good eh!

Yep, I hear the bowler hat and monocle wearers are busy oiling the mincers ready to start pushing homeless and unemployed people through them too.

      A caring and much-loved great-great-grandmother has enjoyed birthday greetings from over 3,000 people as she turns 100.
      Former care assistant Rosie Cochrane entered her second century on January 21 this year.
      Although lockdown means the celebration, from her assisted living home in Bedlington, wasn't quite what she might have planned before the pandemic, granddaughter Christine Logan was determined to ensure 'Granny Rosie' was showered with love on her special day.
      Northumberland County Council fostering team manager Christine said: “Growing up I would watch her and my mam care for others, and just knew I wanted to do the same.
      "She has always put others first and cared for others where she can, be it family, friends or through her work. She is a real inspiration and it is because of her I chose my career path and have also fostered to help others in any way I can.
      "It has been a really difficult time not being able to see her. She loves to get her nails and hair done, go shopping and travel. But we know we must do all we can to keep her safe and ourselves right now.
