    Just tuned in again to see what GB News is doing - and right at the moment they're doing a feature about the railways and the changes with Great British Railways https://www.gbnews.uk/watchlive

    Where did it all go wrong for The Liberal Democrats ?

    That now looks unlikely: Lembit Opik has recently been expelled from the LibDems after speaking at a Conservative event called "How to Stop the Lib Dems"!

    Where did it all go wrong for The Liberal Democrats ?

    Interesting. We've had Hartlepool, and Chesham/Amersham. We have Batley coming up. What's the 4th one?

    Where did it all go wrong for The Liberal Democrats ?

    I think it's a potential new trend - but a very regional one. It was a breathtaking result - an absolutely massive swing - but in a part of the country where there were already pointers to that, even at the last election: The two LibDem gains from the Tories in 2019 were St Albans and Richmond...

    Super Thursday - Elections 2021

    I don't recall much sneering at the time - just the media, on the whole, correctly reporting a very significant by-election result. But... why wonder? A couple of mouse clicks will tell you that - of the more Tory-inclined papers - both the Telegraph and the Times have the LibDem byelection...

    I think that's a pretty good summary, and is my understanding too. Somewhat impressed that you seem to have described those two groups of viewers in a way that doesn't seem to show any bias either way towards whether you think those people are right or wrong.

    So the message was delivered OK, I take it ;-)

    Super Thursday - Elections 2021

    I can see an argument for a mandatory by-election (I'm unsure about that one as I can see arguments on both sides), but making the defecting politician pay for it would be a terrible idea. The cost of an election would bankrupt most people earning an ordinary salary, and the result would be that...

    GB News

    I think being dull would be my complaint. I was initially very receptive to the idea of the channel because - since the rise of identity politics - I've strongly felt the BBC, ITV and other broadcasters have been continually pushing a kind of cultural politics that feels completely alien to me...

    GB News

    That's evading my question. You implied there is something very racist about GB News, and I was simply asking you to clarify what your evidence for that implied allegation was. So I ask again. Have you actually watched any of GB News? Have you actually seen them broadcast something racist? If...

    GB News

    The Campaign group, Stop Funding Hate, have been actively trying to get advertisers to stop advertising with GB News - and I'm sure that has something to do with it. I have to admit to some puzzlement as to why they are trying to do that. I've watched GB News intermittantly and not seen...

    GB News

    Really? Have you actually watched any GB News? And if so, were they broadcasting something openly racist that might lead you to draw that conclusion? 1623826934 I seem to recall reading somewhere that they are deliberately low-budget compared to other news broadcasts, as part of their strategy...

    Do you mean the panel discussion on Sunday evening about the lockdown? If so, I watched that, and I don't think he was getting shot down in a bad way - just having a debate where other people were disagreeing with him. You could quibble with that he was basically one voice arguing against 3...

    Where did it all go wrong for Labour?

    Realistically, people usually tend to give blame/credit for things to Governments and political parties as a whole. If the vaccine programme had gone horribly wrong, does anyone believe that people in the Labour Party or the general public would be saying anything like, 'Kate Bingham totally...

    WMR/TfW only London-Manchester ticket: Which Trains is it Valid on?

    Just checking this out again, it seems the mixing desk is not linked to from the TPExpress home page, which would imply you can't use the mixing desk unless you already know the URL for it? As far as I can tell, the home page links to a different booking engine, similar to the one that Avanti...

    WMR/TfW only London-Manchester ticket: Which Trains is it Valid on?

    So... as in this screenie! (Not my travel dates btw - I was browsing different dates). And yay! Thanks! Finally a journey planner that shows the LNWR/TfW journeys! Evidently the TPE mixing desk is the one to use! Looks from that like there are almost no really cheap advance tickets for the next...

    WMR/TfW only London-Manchester ticket: Which Trains is it Valid on?

    That's a very good point - seeing as I'm now tied into fixed trains North of Manchester, advance tickets London-Manchester would make a lot of sense. But where would I purchase those tickets online? I've tried the Avanti, LNWR and WMR sites, as well as trainsplit.com and drawn a blank. The...

    WMR/TfW only London-Manchester ticket: Which Trains is it Valid on?

    Haha! Yeah, that would leave quite a fair walk at the end of the train journey :lol: Actually that's a journey I normally make a few times a year (in non-Covid years), and I do just about remember when you could get from London to Lancaster for less than that. That's going back a good few...

    WMR/TfW only London-Manchester ticket: Which Trains is it Valid on?

    Bearing in mind that Avanti seem to not be offering any advance fares on the dates I want to travel (or any nearby dates for that matter - Avanti advance fares seem to be hard to come by at the moment)... Going by Manchester, it's about £35 (I don't have the exact amount to hand) London to...
