    Absolutely bang on, socialism crushed in one fell swoop.
    She did more for the poor than labour ever did

    Boris Johnson has pledged to cut income tax bills for people earning more than £50,000 a year if he wins the race to succeed Theresa May as prime minister.

    The former foreign secretary told the Telegraph he would use money currently set aside for a no-deal Brexit to raise the 40% tax rate threshold to £80,000

    "We should be raising thresholds of income tax so that we help the huge numbers that have been captured in the higher rate by fiscal drag," said Mr Johnson, who gets paid £79,468 as an MP.



    Surely even Stevie Wonder can see through this clown?

    I'll be very glad when the season starts again.

    As long as there's more football on the forum, I don't mind. Just been very politics heavy recently, even before the season ended we had loads of Brexit threads, just think it'll be nice to get a new Championship season underway.

    Seriously considering giving myself a break from this board until the season begins sadly.
    For the sake of my sanity and to save the c.u.n.t. letters on my keyboard.
    I don't come on here to get angry but that's what I'm getting, particularly over the last few days.
    I have twitter for that.

    That's what worries me. The regulars will want to be here less and less and newcomers will take one look at the forum and wonder if it's really a football-based forum.

    I know I've been guilty of posting Welsh indy stuff on here a bit too much as well.

    I'd be surprised if Boris has any form of personal allowance or isn't already paying income tax at the eye watering rate of 45% on most of his income.

    All good forums have a mix of topics, which includes politics which is good.
    Just tipping too far over for me at the moment, don't want to be calling nugent a cunt all the time but I will.
    Don't know if he's on a wind up, but if I was in a pub with him and he was coming out with this stuff that I wholeheartedly disagree with, I'd walk away.
    Same here

    End of the day, it's the posters, especially the regulars, who set the agenda. There's no transfer news to discuss, no fixtures (yet) to discuss, and we can't be expected to talk about football when there's not much to talk about. Call it "silly season" if you will.

    But nobody seems bothered when the threads are going the way the majority want them to go, ie calling anyone a cunt who they don't agree with, don't get me wrong I'm not on either side politically, I think they are all wankers but there has to be some balance, if I want to use a forum where people are hounded out because they don't agree with the majority I'd go back on the comb.

    Yeah, to be honest I read that opening post and thought this is just getting tedious now.

    I don't want to hound anyone out, I'd rather step aside myself.
    Everyone has a right to their opinions whatever the subject.

    I would warn against making certain topics frowned upon

    That was the beginning of the end of the comb for me

    @Nugent maybe wind in the wind up for a bit?

    He’s not being hounded. He posts thread after thread on his Tory agenda and is either on the wind up, or really thinks he will change people’s political opinions.

    Personally, I just think he’s after a 10 page banner!
