Who was the last politician, male or female of whatever party that could draw a crowd like this on a wet and dismal June evening?

As you suggest bluebarby it is impressive and if the turnout is high on Thursday who knows what might happen.

No! No! You are missing the point all together. What you say about orangutans is probably true but in this case totally irrelevant.

What I am getting at is that Gateshead is just about as safe as Labour is going to get so why on a wet and dismal June night did the ‘what’s on the telly or, what have we got taped or, do you fancy an early night’ factor not kick in? I think they turned out because they had to see, in person, a politician that the country’s best loved comic has been unable to pin any smut on.  

All through this election campaign I have been expecting at the very least a headline story about how Mr C’s dog has been having it away with next doors cat (yes, yes I know that dogs don’t usually bonk cats but this IS the Sun we are talking about!) 

So thanks, because of you two’s replies I have probably rattled 3g’s cage now and we are in for a rich man poor man beggar man thief sermon as like as not, well you deserve it...........orangutans indeed dear me.

My cage encompasses the entire history of our islands, and so is a far larger cage than those of the compulsive virtue signalers and miscellaneous accompanying freeloaders.  So...feel free to try!

Jeremy has his heart in the right place, but his head deeply buried in the sand.  Fortunately MOST Brits can see this, and intuitively KNOW that a clever and manipulative female is far less dangerous than a terminally deluded male saint who won't be able to control the darker forces he fronts for.  If I'm wrong about this, and you are right, then God help US ALL!

You will have to excuse me here, I am but a simple pit mans laddie whose secondary education ended in 1961 at Westridge and whose further education was in mechanical engineering so I have great difficulty in making any sense of your opening paragraph, eh - as an aside -  you haven't been at the wine at all this evening have you?

Struth are you into religion now too? Surely Jeremy has not got you onto your knees has he?  Failing everything else you could always emigrate. 

See what did I tell you. I knew I shouldn't have rattled his cage. I knew you two would get me into bother. But at least we have avoided rich men, poor men etc..................

I think - technically - I probably did "emigrate" in 2006. But, through the wonders of modern technology I'm still with you in spirit. Mind you there's a chronological limit to even this, even though it does mean I have incredibly easy access to far cheaper and higher quality alcohol now.

On the education thing: it's simply that my left wing teachers at Tynemouth were more deluded than yours at Westridge, and thus easier for a very few of us (less intelligent ones) to take the proverbial out of in the classroom.  The resulting life-skills have stayed with us; whilst the intelligent ones - who conformed to expectations - went on to uni (one suspects to become teachers).  God, if only we'd had material of the likes of Jeremy to work on, instead of the miserable brother of the Labour candidate for Tynemouth!  Isn't life unfair?! :mellow:

Who won?

The Ulster DUP I think.  They are now in pole position to dictate the handling of the Irish border, and to demand more economic aid.

In our FPTP system being a party that has a regional concentration gives you massive leverage.  Has the North East the sense to form such a party, and of course the voters in the North East the horse sense to support it?

@bluebarby   Life provides you with many opportunities to make your own "fair" - if you can be ar**d!

Well I did take the opportunities presented to me and I am quite content with the life I have had up to now. I was thinking more of little Bradley Lowery six years old and dying of cancer, orphans by the 1000's created  by wars, those in need of simple stuff like water and yes 3G, when it comes to trying to ease the burden a bit of the fellow creatures, I can be ar**d.

The only fly in the ointment here is that first of all you need to have a trillionaire whose wife just happens to be Prime Minister  sitting on a comfortable majority who gets greedy and decides she wants a bigger majority and calls a general election. What she forgets about though is that the electorate are far more interested in food banks, free school meals, education, pensions and, most important, who's forking out for my hip replacement than they are about Johney Foreigner and his marras nipping over from Poland (and other funny sounding name countries) making a bob or two then gannin back yem (possibly with the odd hip replacement). Plus a squeaky clean socialist superstar that not even the Sun can smutty. So then this wifie who is then towld to either eat a breakfast or get on her bike (even though she hasn't got one) looses here majority and then your North East bunch of Massiveleverage come to her rescue and put a political pistol her head and demand a kings ransom for pulling her out of the sh*t. 

Can you honestly and seriously imagine this happening? Not in a million years..............................

Wow, I didn't know Philip May was a "trillionaire"! :)  This is too hung up on current events so try a generalisation...

Actually they won't get it... because any region with sentient people will also form at least one cross-traditional-party alliance and preferably multiple alliances, and they will offer their votes to form a government on a competitive basis too.  Yes, it's horsetrading but that's how things work anyway, just not on such an above board and refined basis. It's pretty much were Labour's devolution is already tugging us, though like much coming out of the left the implications weren't properly considered (Umm... SNP!).  It also has parallels in much of Europe. National party orientated FPTP hasn't exactly worked swimmingly for the NE over the last century has it, and there are huge problems with all forms of PR.

It just goes from worse to more worserer, now she's given that little willick Cove a job and it's not 12 months since he shafted Boris! 

Fine stable mates those two are going to be!

(Did you see the size of chain around her neck tonight? Prisoners in dungeons didn't get chains that size!)

There's nothing wrong with Gove; he should have been in the original cabinet instead of the incompetent Hammond.  In Remonian terms he's a hard Brexiteer, as indeed your poster boy McDonnell has just come out as!

Nothing wrong with Gove?????  Good grief putting him in charge of environment is like putting a fox in charge of the chicken cree!

Not that that would last long as he is in favour of fox hunting. Culling badgers is another of his likes as well as wanting to build houses near protected wetlands. As far as environment goes he is up there with Trump! 

He is the sort of bloke green party members use as example when telling their kids about bogie men. 

Not only that but Ms Uturn will need to make very certain he always stands in front of her, as Boris will testify. (She will have to keep him in front of her too.)

As for 'poster boy' I have no political affiliation left, right or down the pan, politicians are, unfortunately, a necessary evil.

It's time to get real 3g, with UKIP down the pan and Ms Uturn having nowhere to turn, a hard breakfast is not going to happen and soft one is looking dodgy too. The youth of the country has spoken.

We could have a referendum : –

Boris to stand for Worse & Gove to stand for Worserer

Tick one box only

 Worse

Or

Worserer

Then if the outcome is worserer than first thought we could ask to pull out of Brexit and reinstate Cameron and Osborne into government and have another referendum.

If that seems worserer than the worst scenario then we could get 'even worserer' and ask May and Corbyn to form a coalition government  allowing Nicola Sturgeon to form a body of high-ranking carpenters, assisted by joiners, to lead on specific policy areas such as worse, or worserer Health, Transport, Defence etc.

Think I might just stand for the next election, but only if it’s raining.

Which party will that be?  You can't have the Living in a Big Way (on credit) Party - that one belongs to (the other) McDon.

      All they want to do is cradle their newborn baby in their arms.
      But Bedlington parents Carly Walker and Ryan Murphy have been forced to watch from the sidelines as their daughter fights for her life.
      Little Ayda Faith Murphy was born prematurely on March 31, weighing just 4lbs, at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary.
      Rushed for her first operation straight after birth and another at just four days old, she's battling terrifying odds after being diagnosed with a series of incredibly rare birth defects.
      An almost unique variant of gastroschisis, a defect of the abdominal wall, has left her intestines pushing up into her chest - a condition doctors estimate is suffered by no more than 10 babies worldwide.
      Meanwhile, her heart appears to have flipped over and lies on the wrong side of her chest, while she's receiving oxygen from a machine due to her underdeveloped lungs.
