Politics (and other political stuff)
RE: Politics (and other political stuff)
I just wish there was a more central party that just took the best parts of both Labour and Conservatives, but I don't think we'll ever see that, at least with enough support to make them viable.

I personally couldn't see myself voting Labour any time soon, while I agree with some of their policies, there are others that I just don't. Then there's the issue of leadership! Is it really that difficult to find someone likeable?

If the nhs had not been created or library's not been created and Corbyn had of said that's what he wanted if he became prime minister the right wing press would have crucified him even more that he did. Im yet to see ANY left wing polices put forward by him and it just a shame votes fall for the same lies the tory press spout at each election

Although the Conservatives won the Hartlepool by-election from Labour, they lost the Chesham & Amersham by-election to the Liberal Democrats.

Batley & Spen will follow on July 1st.

Nissan has announced details of a new battery "gigafactory" that will enable its Sunderland car plant to massively increase production of electric vehicles.

The Japanese manufacturer said the £1bn battery plant, built in partnership with Chinese manufacturer Envision, will create 900 jobs at Nissan plus 750 at Envision - and an overall 6,200 when the impact on suppliers is included.

Britishvolt intends to build a plant on the former Blyth power station site in Northumberland promising 3,000 jobs and batteries for 300,000 vehicles a year.

Really good news for Sunderland and the North East.

Now if only they could transport vehicles by electric train, rather than diesel HGVs...

That's all because Britain does not have a licence to import EV batteries or component material. the licence was EU wide, yet another load off crap spouted by this regime .
