The 1980s called but British Telecom still hadn't connected your phone yet

The DWP is the only place that uses Vivaldi as a call-waiting tune. Corbyn used that in his speech as a dog-whistle for a generation pissed off by the DWP.

To recreate the 1980s then tax from Amazon and Google should be used to provide free business rates for small business high street stores. It's they who have been slaughtered most from the tech companies tax free status, and the high streets of the 1980s were vibrant and worth visiting, if only in memory. Free porn for all faster could be replaced with a topless woman in every newspaper and nude magazines being recycled in woods. And the Milky Bar kid never came through on his promise, "The Milky Bars are on me!"

In short, silly stuff and I won't be voting for it.

I'd prefer free dental care and free glasses for all. I need both urgently and can't get either because I'm not on Universal Credit, because I don't want to lose my flat. If I vote, and I may not for the first time, it'll be for the SNP.
