Agreed. Do as they do in Germany.

Also, get rid of useless management & fat cat layers. Consolidate and standardise national transport policy. It is an integral part of industrial productivity.

When peeps arrive at work feeling like sh1t creativity effort and drive are all affected in a big way.

Agreed.

Happy to have got a bet on Theresa May on 18th April at 1.17. Odds are now 1.06, have been as low as 1.03.

Not good imho to let autocracy get its way. The people should object to being ruled by extremists of any colour.

Haven't you left out Theresa May?

Calling an election because of only a 16 majority with many MPs raising concerns within her own party.

Then there is Rupert Murdoch's press.

Watching the news last week when LibDems announced manifesto and some female presenter on Sky News asks about Tim Farron's views on pregnancy from 10 years ago and about right to life.

FFS - talk about anything else but the manifesto.

Mind numbingly stupid but are you smart aleks aware of the media bias.

Same goes for Labour. Don't talk about the manifesto, let's talk about how Jeremy Corbyn name not mentioned as opposed to the Labour Party. Let's talk about disunity in the Labour party. Question that's asked was how much do you think Corbyn's been damaged by the infighting in the Labour party? We'll come to the manifesto in the last 30 seconds of the interview.

Democracy by the media circus imo.

If the people are themselves extremists, then they are getting exactly what they want. This holds true for everyone on your list.
