It has been revealed 58 out of 200 audience members were either Conservative or Tory where as 102 support left wing parties. I think Farage was on the ball when he challenged the audience's standing. We should also not these figures assume everyone was telling the truth on their application forms.

Am I the only one who doesn't care about diamonds and stuff like that? Simple silver jewelry does me just fine.

The problem seems to be that they put in so many Lib-Dems - why have nearly as many of them compared to Labour and Tories when you look at the vote shares?! I can understand giving disproportionate representation to PC but other than that this seems silly. I can only guess it's done based on 2010 shares rather than polls?

Likewise. I don't wear jewellery at all except for watches and considering the fact that e.g. diamond prices are artificially inflated and controlled by manipulating the worldwide supply (mastered to perfection by the now thankfully irrelevant De Beers monopoly), I don't like them for investment either. Diamonds are not even rare except for a couple of exquisite pieces so it's just another case of silly people rushing to waste their money because the media and culture tell them to or the ultra rich comparing their dicks and generally throwing money around because they can.

The only reason I'd consider buying some is their power to turn women wet, but if that works, the whole relationship is seldom worth it anyway. :laugh:

I have a silver bracelet that was passed down to me. I think it's from the 70s and has a little heart lock on it. And I have a silver necklace with a little silver cross pendant. No rings as I don't like wearing them, so when I get married I don't want an engagement ring or a wedding ring - there's no point as I would take them off anyway and besides, they are ridiculously expensive.

I do like amethyst, but I have a small piece just because I think it's pretty, not as a part of jewelry. Whole lot cheaper than diamonds as well.

And, I wouldn't have put it quite the way you did (), but aye, if someone's just after what you can buy them, the relationship is not worth it.

Not at all my love! In fact, I think wooden jewellery would be even better!

The Lib Dems are not especially left-wing.

given that 4 of the 5 parties represented were what you would term "left wing" surely if anything the Right was over represented in that audience?

That depends on the Liberal Democrat you're talking about.

That's the point - I want to make sure that everyone know's that you love trees - and this way, you can always be close to them!

However, I am deeply offended, after spending the last three hours researching and finding the perfect piece of jewellery which I think would complement you perfectly, you have just outright rejected it.

well all of their party who are in the cabinet for a start I mean they have a few half decent backbenchers I guess, but so do Labour, means very little if the overall policy agenda is set by people who know about as much about left wing politics as I do about rocket science
