Brexit & Elections

Recommended Posts

I have not posted for some time as a result of ill-health and death of a family member.

Previously Brexit and Elections were discussed and there were strong views. Perhaps the site has changed in my absence?

Sorry to hear that @Bedlingtonian I hope your health is improving.

The Brexit debate certainly was lively.  

Still the same old site just a few less regulars since Facebook started taking over the world.

Sorry for your loss, nice to see you back and in better health, I enjoy the Brexit banter but don't hear many of the issues, really all we are told is the Irish border is the main stumbling block, lots of rumours but very few facts.

So....any thoughts on Dec 12th.....is slippery Lavery big majority going to be slashed

I think only the Conservative Party could oust him in Wansbeck although that would be a big ask.

I think former Wansbeck miners and their families would like to here him answer the questions.

Somewhat ironic in that the Brexit Party saved him from the chop. Perhaps he should look at his own performance rather than blame everything on Brexit.

"Majority slashed" is an understatement.........10435 in 2017......814 in 2019

      Almost two-thirds of residents feel the Government was too late introducing a local lockdown in the North East as Covid-19 cases continue to rocket, according to a ChronicleLive survey.
      Tighter restrictions were imposed across the region's seven council areas on September 18 in a bid to combat the spike in coronavirus cases.
      But numbers continue to soar at an alarming rate, with North East cases more than doubling to 2,524 in the week leading to September 21 from 1,107 in the previous seven days.
      According to Public Health England data covering the seven days to September 22, Newcastle now has the highest rate of infection in the North East and the fifth-highest in England – with the city’s numbers almost tripling.
      Newcastle recorded 632 new cases in that week, with an infection rate of 208.7 per 100,000 people. That was compared to 224 new cases and a rate of 74 in the previous 7 days.
      South Tyneside had previously had the second-highest rate in England, but is now eighth according to the latest figures. The borough recorded 301 new cases with an infection rate of 199.4 per 100,000.
