  1. Nigel Farage says the Brexit Party will NOT stand against the Tories in the general election - but WILL target Labour-held seats. Not that it would of made much difference to the vote in Hereford and South Herefordshire seat. Although it would have been nice to vote BREXIT because all the others are a waste of time. I just hope Boris stands by his promise to get us out of the EU, although his BREXIT is not a no deal, but one with strings attached.
  2. The Slog comments that: Owen Jones and Nigel Farage may well be sharing tears in their beers on December 13th The company Electoral Calculus has just produced this prediction of the likely outcome on 12th December.
  3. Also information for Electoral Calculus for Hereford North seat Topics covered: * Hereford North: Seat, Ward and Prediction Details * Hereford North: Overview * Hereford North: Political and Demographic indicators * Hereford North: Map * Hereford North: Ward-by-ward More amusement.
  4. Wealth of information about the election: whether it's turns out to be true will be seen. Electoral Calculus for Hereford and South Herefordshire seat Topics covered: * Hereford and South Herefordshire: Seat, Ward and Prediction Details * Hereford and South Herefordshire: Overview * Hereford and South Herefordshire : Political and Demographic indicators * Hereford and South Herefordshire: Map * Hereford and South Herefordshire: Ward-by-ward Should keep you amused.
  5. Election period timetable 6 November - Parliament dissolved Parliament will be officially dissolved shortly after midnight and suspended from the start of the following day. This will trigger the five week campaign period before the polling date and, as dictated by election laws, MPs will not sit in the Commons for 25 working days in the lead-up to the vote. This also marks the beginning of "purdah", the pre-election period during which there are restrictions on what civil servants are allowed to do. They must continue to work but must avoid anything that could influence the election - such as by publishing a press release promoting the governing party - or that could call into question their impartiality. During this time the governing party should not make any long term plans or policy decisions for the country unless deemed necessary. 7 November - Receipt of writ The election writ - the legal documents authorise the holding of a general election or by-election - is issued declaring a vote will be held in each constituency. 11 November - Notice of election The publication of notice of election must be given in constituencies no later than 4pm 14 November - Candidates' deadline All candidates wishing to stand in the election must have submitted their nomination papers by 4pm in order to stand in the election. This is also the deadline for those withdrawing from the election race or for anyone wishing to make an objection to a candidate standing. 16 November - Candidate lists published Once all the nominations have been received and confirmed, the final lists of candidates will be published. You will be able to see the list of who is standing in your constituency by looking on your local authority website or on a noticeboard in their offices, where the names should be published. 26 November - Voter registration deadline The final deadline to register to vote for the election, which you can do by visiting the Government website, is at midnight. If you do not register to vote by this date you will not be able to vote in the election on 12 December. The deadline for those wishing to apply for postal voting for the first time, or for those wishing to change preferences for proxy voting, is at 5pm. 3 December - NATO Summit From 3 to 4 December the 2019 NATO Summit will take place in London. This will mean that the world's leaders - including US President Trump and European leaders - will descend on the capital whilst MPs are in full campaign flow and just a week before the final vote. 4 December - Proxy voting deadline The deadline for those wishing to apply to vote by proxy for the first time is 5pm. There is scope to vote by proxy if you have not applied by this date if you suffer from an emergency which will prevent you from voting. 12 December - Polling day The polls will open from 7.00 am to 10.00 pm. After they close at 10.00 pm exit polls will be published which will give the first indication as to what the final result will be. The results will then be published throughout the night and early hours of the morning. 13 December - Result By mid-morning the following day we will know what the next Parliament is going to look like. If no majority is won the leader of the biggest party will enter into talks with others about forming a coalition government or a confidence and supply arrangement.
  6. Just returned home at 6pm and water back on at Muir Close.
  7. Saving the planet? Somebody every couple of months deposits a bag of cat litter and other items behind the garages between Muir Close and Sherborne Close and expects somebody to dispose of their waste. This is usually done by myself on a regular weekly litter pick. However I can't be bothered to tidy this mess up after this waster left his rubbish again behind the garages and some other idiot thought it would be fun to kick the contents over the footpath for others to walk through. Don't these people have waste bins to dispose of their waste properly. . People (usually the younger generation) go on about saving the planet from pollution yet most of the litter I pick up is drink cans, fast food wrappings, scratch cards and sweet papers. A lot of the cans of drinks are labelled energy drinks, but obviously those drinking these have not got the strength to throw the items into waste bins. There are three bins in my area close to the local shop - why don't they use them? These plastic tops of drinks bottles are easily washed down the drains and need to be attached to the bottle. Another twist to recycling is the habit of some people putting a quantity of cans and bottles in black plastic bags. These are usually left by the waste bins or recycling bins. However the council will not recycle black plastic bags and leave the items on the footpath or behind outbuildings were they are dumped. The streets on our estates are now littered regularly, the drains blocked and kerbs overgrown with weeds. Slowly and surely this adds to the blighting of the area and our planet which the younger future generation couldn't care less about.

  9. It's all down to tactical voting otherwise nothing's going to change.
  10. Anyone for a weekend break in Barcelona this Autumn.
  11. Things to come: Live video from Barcelona showing how the Spanish government deals with dissent. At least we had a referendum even though our politicians couldn't uphold the result. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x1BMLdkEmvY
  12. Almost a year to the day. Does this come with Boris's latest deal. We need another warfare organisation to join the US and NATO to guarantee full employment for those displaced when the bombs start falling. Military Unification has been on the European Union's policy agenda for decades. In the past twelve months, the pressure to complete the task has accelerated the process, particularly since the Bratislava Summit of September 2016. For a time line on EU Military Unification see time line here.
  13. The 2020 Women Against State Pension Inequality (WASPI) judgement I haven't heard many women talking about this. They had been campaigning against what they see as unfair changes to the State Pension Age imposed on women born in the 1950s as the age they receive their pensions rises from 60 to 65, in line with men. An estimated 3.8 million women are affected, and some will lose £50,000. Article in Daily Mail today: The Slog says: The 2020/WASPI judgement can snatch victory from the jaws of Brexit defeat The British Ruling Class has made the fatal error of putting down too many just causes at once. The victims should now join together and teach the Establishment a life-lesson.
  14. Story today in Daily Mail: Four metal detectorists 'stole £3million haul of Anglo Saxon coins and jewellery after finding it in a field and tried to sell it on the black market' Article places Leominster in Hertfordshire - not surprised!
