    I would suggest the national party would do well to keep anyone connected to the local council as far away from campaigning as possible. Nothing would put me off potentially voting for Labour than them turning up at my door.

    Tbh I can’t see Coventry turning blue but if it does it’s going to be down to a shocking lazy and arrogant campaign in both South and NW - they are just going through the motions

    Donald Trump London NATO visit includes tea with Prince Charles Queen and Downing Street reception | Daily Mail Online

    General election: Donald Trump backs Boris Johnson but says 'I'll stay out of election'

    Asked about whether the NHS would be discussed between US and UK officials for a future trade deal after Brexit, he said: "No not at all. I have nothing to do with it. Never even thought about it, honestly.

    "I don't even know where that rumour started.


    There we go, can we put this nhs for sale to bed now

    Fake news.

    The minute he said he backs Boris he hasn’t stayed out of it

    I don’t know where this rumour started? Mmmm? Him himself, members of his staff and the minutes from trade negotiations.

    So what you’re saying is you are objecting to a man questioning the words of a known and proven liar.

    Come on Dom, Trump has publicly stated the NHS is on the table and its in the minutes from trade negotiations!

    Do you not think there's the slightest chance Johnson has asked him to play it down as its causing issues?

    You mean you find it an awkward one so don't want to answer it.

    It wasn't so long ago nobody imagined life away from the EU.

    As we are exploring imaginary scenarios...where did that one come from? If I see or hear anyone say or even intimate we are useless etc. I will take issue with them...whether or not your post was aimed at me

    What if they went through the same process for putting tigers in charge of childcare?

    What if!

    Agreed. Tbf they're not exactly trying in the other seat either, but neither is anybody else.

    It's a ghost election around here!

    So when a couple of singles marry. One has a pink table cloth on their table, the other blue. They negotiate as to which they keep for their table, & even which table they keep.

    So perhaps we can assume that we have said absolutely no way...we will use your table but my tablecloth!?

    Who knows but Pharma drug negotiations & policy on pricing is entirely different to selling off the NHS

    No we can't put it to bed. He said it was when standing next to Theresa May in front of the British press, even you must now acknowledge that either way he is a proven liar. And there is too much evidence that the NHS is up for grabs for me to believe what trump says.

    He is and the claims regarding assumed extra costs are absolutely absurd - he’s said people will have to fund their own childbirth it’s an outright lie

    In the American system - that is what happens. So if we sell off the NHS and go to an insurance based system that will happen.

    You clearly drink the Tory ‘Kool-Aid’ and believe every word that they say. If that works for you then fair play.

    The rest of us know it’s horseshit.

    are we talking about a persons own childbirth or the birth of their children, the wording's a bit ambiguous but if it's the latter then you definitely have to pay or have adequate insurance.

    No problem with that myself but if Dominic Raab said it then you can pretty much guarantee it won't happen.

    Which means you cannot counter argue the principle or the point.

    Not the first time though. I have noticed how sometimes you and one or two others suddenly go AWOL so you don't have to answer questions or might have to conceed.

    You know - just like what Bojo is accused of.

    But in that scenario Johnson and co would come out and say the US were after the NHS and we put our foot down and said it wasn't up for discussion.

    What we're actually seeing is a denial from everyone involved that there has been a discussion when we can all see the evidence there has been for ourselves.
