Centre left, Al. Used to identify somewhat with the one nation Tories, but they've all been booted out of the party by now.So what are you Elgy me Ol' Mucker ?

Yep, Trump obviously took heed from focus groups over the first one.At least the latest head to head debate was a bit more like two people vying to be POTUS.
If footballers are going step into the political bear pit, they’re going to have to expect the political class to bite back. For every Tory toenailer defending the Government there’s a Tory hating leftist hanging on the shirt tails of Rashford and attempting to damage the Government.You see, this is exactly what I mean about the politics of negatively in this country.
Instead of saying "we recognise there is a problem, we don't believe this is the right approach, but these are the exact steps we're taking to deal with it", Conservative politicians are taking to public fora to points score against someone who has experienced it and is trying to do something about it. And then their toenailers pile on and question the motives of someone who is just wants to feed starving children, whilst commiting the sin of being wealthy. Nevermind that virtually every millionaire in Parliament does sweet f all for poor people. Nevermind that Rashford has several times contributed his own money to the campaign.
No, the big sin here is for daring to suggest that parliament might want to help out the absolute poorest in society.
