    When does an Election promise become a bribe for your vote? Abolishing tuition fees, Labour manifesto pledge but repaying WASPI women seems just a reaction to Boris Johnson saying the Conservatives couldn’t afford it . Step forward the Labour Party and here’s another 58 billion we will do it. Borrow the money and the next generation can pay it back! That one pledge added to all the other borrowing they are going to do will probably eventually result in the pension age rising even further. Every family knows that borrowed money has to be repaid eventually unless you go bankrupt!

    It would be understandable for students to jump at scrapping tuition fees. They haven’t yet learned that everything has a price. What about the poor students who lost out?
    I fear that Mr Corbyn will bankrupt the country if he gets in power.
    I still don’t know where I will place my cross but I certainly know where I won’t.

    It’s the Tories that are splashing out tens of billions on a completely unnecessary brexit, amongst other things.

    And Chris Grayling alone has cost nearly £ 3 billion in political blunders.

    This idea that the Tories are good with the economy is a myth pushed by their billionaire friends in the media.

    @ Tim…. you state ‘completely unnecessary brexit’ – god forbid a government should enact the democratic will of the people….? and in the next breath Timmy boy will urge us to believe he is a democrat who believes in the will of the people won’t you Timmy…? As for the billions spent by the Tories, do you have any idea how much Labour committed successive generations too under their PFI programmes, we will still be paying for many of their projects for the next 15 – 20 years! Not to mention the thousands of billions spend on an illegal war and all the fallout from that.

    Right on Lilly – some Blairites are going to be butthurt about this attack. The rest of us were busy protesting the Iraq War.

    You can keep Tony, he was always Murdoch’s man.

    Hi there. There was no ‘democratic will,’ just a very narrow majority brought about through proven cheating.

    I agree about Blair, but he’s a Tory who was carrying out Tory policies. That’s why Margaret Thatcher referred to him as her ‘greatest achievement’ and why he’s vehemently against Corbyn.

    “The focus of Labour’s campaign today is on transport, as the party pledges to cut rail fares by 33% and make train travel free for young people under the age of 16. The party says it will cost £1.5bn per year and be covered by money the Conservatives had earmarked for roads”

    Latest in a long line of promises (bribes) for votes! Think they have now covered most of the electorate. No wonder the opinion polls are showing Labour gaining support !

    Exchanging money for votes is illegal calling it a promise seems to circumvent the law !

    Every single person who has ever campaigned in an election has broken the law then.

    So the number of people registered to vote in the Wrexham Constituency is 507 less than in 2017 , surprising when you consider the number of new house that have been built in the last two years. Also last time there were only four candidates, this time there are six , Green and Brexit being the extra two. Depending on turnout it would seem less votes to be spread across more parties , can’t see Liberals or Plaid getting less votes than last time , so votes will be leeching from Labour and Conservatives. All the signs are a close run race , weather , events and turnout will be key.
