The Conservative party are proposing to abandon the Leveson reforms which they agreed on a cross-party basis in 2011, and to cancel Part 2 of the inquiry which would investigate police corruption and the cover-ups of criminality at newspapers.

Their manifesto pledges to repeal the “Section 40” low cost arbitration incentive and, some might say, deny ordinary people affected by illegal press abuse access to justice.

I was actually rather pleasantly surprised by the tory manifesto.  Perhaps less bad than I feared would be more accurate.  Also it pandered to one of my pet hates, universal winter fuel allowance.

What staggers me is that her campaign is managing to get even more presidential.  That such a mediocre person believes, quite possibly correctly, that focussing solely on her personal attributes is an election winning strategy is just so depressing.

And people wonder why the Mail, Express Sun and others pander to them so much!

Can somebody put me straight on something in the Tory manifesto. If I own a home jointly with my wife say worth £300k and one of us goes into a home or has home help. They stay there for a while and the bills rack up. Their £150k equity becomes £100k. The survivor would then have to stump up £50k or sell the house. Is this right?

No, you won't be forced to sell, but the local authority may take a legal charge over the property under a 'deferred payment' arrangement.

The Tories should introduce voluntary euthanasia as part of their policy....although the Mail would probably veto it on the grounds that it's got EU in the word.

OK ta. I'd imagine equity release schemes will do well out of this as will care homes etc unless they regulate it and even then.....

Indeed...

Their headline tomorrow is 'Terrorists. Brown skin. So even we'd prefer EU than Asia'

HIdden away in the Tory manifesto small print is that they'll be restricting funding for non-chemotherapy cancer treatments. Which will include additional drugs needed to cope with chemotherapy.

But people will still vote for them because they'll raise the income tax limit and save people £600 a year

Retirement planning is a key part of the Tory manifesto. Mainly Theresa May's planning for her own very comfortable retirement.

He will be very peeved as she has now contradicted everything that was said over the weekend and suggested that a cap will be imposed....

So that's what strong and stable looks like.

In other news she has also suggested this morning that one should vote for her as a new government would not have time to be prepared for the negotiations with the EU, they are getting evermore rattled....

The section of the manifesto dealing with data collection, protection and the way the internet will be regulated directly by a Tory government contradict each other.

As if being able to monitor our browsing history and pass it over to practically every central agency the government could think of wasn't enough, they would now like to censor what we can read or view.

Part of the Tory Brexit negotiating team will be Boris Johnson, the same bloke who was heavily involved in West Ham getting use of the Olympic stadium from the state for barely anything. Alongside him will be Liam Fox, and David Davis.

Labour on the other hand will have ex QC and barrister Keir Starmer.

I know who I would prefer to have negotiating on our behalf.
