    You have as many choices as you want. I’m not telling you how to vote.

    As long as you vote for something you believe in it’s better than not voting at all even if what you believe in one day turns out to be bollocks.

    If you support a fairer and more equitable society and you’re skint, then you’re merely envious.

    If you support a fairer and more equitable society and you’ve got a few quid, you’re either a champagne socialist or a virtue signaller.

    It’s dead easy being a right winger.

    He’s hardcore Brexit and has gone so far to the right to justify his stance that he’s become a bit of a figure of fun amongst us. Absolutely everything triggers him.

    Nice guy but he’ll end up like Saxton ranting about crazed lefties, except he’ll be a lot richer unless Brexit ****s his construction business.

    The minute you increase working hours on construction sites the more accidents you’ll get. Cramming 5 into 4 will never work. It doesn’t work in Education, Construction, and Healthcare so we should just call the useless **** a useless **** and forget all about his stupid mongifesto.

    So...hold on...The minute you increase hours you increase accidents. Doesn't it follow then that if you decrease hours you decrease accidents?

    Let's just call you a Tory boy and forget all about your pretending to be impartial.

    No Tel, you've got it wrong <laugh>

    They are reducing hours for exactly the same pay, so you work less, I know it's unbelievable. Even all the nurses and doctors will be working less....well ok i made that last bit up, but that's the basis of what's being offered. I swear I just saw a flying pig, oh no, hang on it's Boris...

    I could understand just writing off a four day week in the standard blasé right wing way if it had never been done successfully before. Clearly it’s not ideal for every workplace but for some it has worked already where tried.

    Not the same but at my place if you accrue enough hours you can take every other Friday off in the run-up to Xmas. Seems to work fine.

    I think it entirely depends on the job and the industry. In some it would work in others it wouldn’t.

    We definitely need to think about work life balance in this country. But I’m not sure trying to bring in a mandatory four day week is the answer. Not that off the top of my head I can come up with a solution!

    You’re probably right but I appreciate a party trying something to improve lives especially when they know it’ll come across as a bit too radical for us serfs. **** all gets done after lunch in most offices after midday Friday.

    I dont think they've set a date for any of that though have they? More of a long term ambition from what I've read.

    I bet he knew that 12% is less than 14%.

    Weekends were only achieved through strikes and people fighting for their rights. I'm sure that back in the day some people were outraged that the plebs were allowed 2 days off a week, let alone paid holidays that arrived much later.

    People that think their per hour job will be affected don't get it. You will be paid the same FOR LESS hours, so you can still work more if it makes you happy, you basically get a massive pay rise ffs.

    A 4 day week will earn you exactly the same as a 5 day week...It may seem odd to some but that is a fact under Corbyns plan.....It can be confusing because without the plan then if a company suddenly says we have to drop from 5 days to a 3 day week then you would lose money but you keep your job...
