    You have the same party twice.
    Isn't UKIP the MRL party?
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    Unfortunately I don't think BR is representative of the country as a whole.
  • mrfpbmrfpb Posts: 4,390
    I think BR is demographically aligned to Richmond Park, but this poll seems to buck that trend.

    Incorrect - do not besmirch the good name of the MRL.

    UKIP is the NF/BNP.

  • I wonder how the poll here would change if Corbyn replaced his plan to fund his "Unicorns For All" programme by means of levying extra taxes on just those who own a luxury bike (ie anything with a non-steel frame or better components than Shimano Sora) rather than the relatively limited number of taxpayers who earn >£80k.

    Not a bad idea. Some may argue the threshold should be higher (such as105) but tax them more. Would make people think harder as its easy to vote for someone promising loads of free stuff when you're not paying for it.

    As oppose to voting for tax increases and less access to public services for yourself whilst continuing to fund tax breaks for mega corporations and those who already have more than enough money you mean? :roll:
