Absolutely true I think Corbyn held on on purpose to ensure that Bawjaws won.

I do wonder if this is part of politicians stupid games, having realised they have made monumental screw ups they run a campaign to put voters off?

Can be the most powerful man in the UK!

Screw honesty and integrity when the competition in the election is even worse!!
Also the SNP had suspended a candidate for his anti-semitic comments and it was too late to remove his name from the ballot paper.

He still won!

So basically, pipe down if you don't vote because you aren't entitled to your opinion.

Can’t understand why folks don’t vote, as by not voting, they do nothing to stop the winner winning. Just as good/bad as a vote for the winner IMHO.

I find it a bit weird when folk are bothered enough to stick their two penneth in on an internet forum but then were not bothered enough to take a walk down the street and place a real vote in order to shape the state of politics for the coming years. Shameful behaviour in my opinion.

Glad he won , might make some of the lazy gits that don’t work get a job .
Throw some non working immigrants out of the country so as not to put so much stress on the NHS .

A+E maybe should charge a fee per visit. Say £10 it will raise a fair sum of money and deter a lot of wasters. I see regularly threads on social media about the wait in our local hospital. Every single thread will have posts from people who gave up waiting and went home. If you're in a+e you should be that ill that getting bored and going home shouldn't be an option.

Labour and Remain voters less tolerant of others voting "incorrectly" than Conservative and Leave voters.

I tell ya, I'm shocked the folks who have been calling the rest of us dumb, racists, islamaphobic, nationalists, voting to be poorer etc etc, are the real intolerant one's. Shocked I say.

I think the NHS could take a few cues from the Medicare system here in Australia. It's a bit like a semi-skimmed NHS. You pay for seeing a doctor (although some don't charge directly) and then recoup some of this cost via the Government's Medicare system. For instance, a visit to a GP might cost $70, of which you claim back around $40-50 depending on your circumstances. This usually eliminates needless visits but does add a financial burden on the sick. However, the more treatments you pay for, the more you receive back in any financial year. It's not perfect and I have to have private medical cover as I earn over a threshold and would otherwise be taxed heavily for not having cover. You also have to have a medical card that must be presented at each and every visit to a GP surgery, hospital etc. This would stop those accessing treatment who are not UK citizens or living/working in the UK illegally.
