2015 - The General Election - Discussion Forum

Post by HwoodMike2umate »

Well for those not interested in Formula 1 maybe this Discussion Forum will have more appeal. And to start the ball rolling lets have a brief history of Westminster Elections - think 1966 is the first one I can remember albeit vaguely - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Un ... _elections

Paxman v Cameron is brilliant!

Hopefully Paxman is still on his game against Milliwank

Paxman is just a poor man's Vincent Browne, but he'll have to do.

Compared to what currently sits in East Belfast , a German or even a dogs collar would be better.

Paxman makes good tv but he doesn't let the interviewee answer his or her question. It turns into a shouting down competition which he always wins. Milliband is too weak for that environment.

No, but he did ask him if people would prefer his brother as PM which was rather rogueish and amusing
