    Yes but that's only 0.02% of the population there, hardly "most".

    I also think I have a fairly good sample of Mancunians to make an accurate judgement.

    Some are most are not If you look at manchester it is the capital city of gun crime , South Birmingham is better than manchester, North Birmingham is a hell hole
    Hahaha I live outside NW Birmingham, it's actually not that bad! There are some areas just south of the city central zone that are quite rough, like Highgate - but that's what happens in cities! Not every city is perfect and you will have inequalities unfortunately.

    I actually thought Birmingham was worse for gun crime. But what Manchester can beat Birmingham on is employment... lower unemployment rate than Birmingham (however it has been decreasing recently because of a massive increase in job creation).

    There's a Highgate in Birmingham lol. There's also one in Walsall. Both I've heard aren't the most affluent areas!

    Well actually it's not bad because it's technically not in Birmingham! In fact, much closer to the Black Country! I think I know what the person means by North Birmingham though...

    London is nice too but has some rough areas, cities are like this, it's something I have gotten use to!

    Right. Time for some questions. I have to say, I think all the manifestos look great.

    Jammy Duel - your manifesto is the hardest to read but the background is strangely hypnotic. Your activity in the MHoC is commendable and I admire your bravery to stand against your own party. One thing that it is rather irritating in your manifesto however are the typos (fiarer and faieer). Some quite funky spellings going on there. Anyway, I have some questions:

    1) How will you support freedom of speech?
    2) What disincentives would you use to deter people from taking dangeous substances?
    3) How will you support the police and military?
    4) Why have you decided to stand against your own party?
    5) If you get elected as an MP, will you remain as an independent or join another party?


    mobbsy91 - the Conservatives are the 'defending champions' of the General Election and I must say, in general your party has had a decent term. You had a very slow start to the term but your performance appears to have picked up as the term has progressed. Your manifesto creates a strong sense of déjà vu. I have no idea why. :rolleyes: Here are some questions:

    1) How would you distinguish yourself from Jammy Duel?
    2) What do you mean by 'core lifesaving services'? Are you pledging to increase funding for treatment programmes or A&E or something completely different?
    3) Would you say your vision for the future of the Conservatives differs significantly to that of your predecessor?
    4) I would say that failing to pass the Finance Bill was a blow to your party. Do you believe this hgihlights the MHoC's lack of confidence in Conservative economic policies?
    5) Last term there were a few cases of Conservative party members publicly attacking your coalition partner, the Liberals. Would you not agree that this could deter potential coalition partners in the future?




    TheBigMan2 - for someone who is so new to the MHoC, I commend you on your decision to stand in the General Election. I wish you all the best with your campaign. Here are some questions:

    1) Would you say that being so new to the MHoC could count against you?
    2) Why should people vote for you as opposed to parties with a similar political stance such as the Conservatives and UKIP?
    3) Why did you choose to stand as an independent and not join a party?
    4) You mention that you want to make sure interest rates are kept below 1%. This decision normally lies with the Bank of England so how would you ensure they did what you want them to?
    5) You mention 'post-Brexit Britain'. Would you say that the decision to leave the EU has changed your stance on certain policies?


    PetrosAC - the Liberals haven't had the best term but it's been ok. You've lost several key members and your legislation output appears to have been poor. I have to say though, I really like the design of your manifesto. Here are some questions:

    1) You've stated several times that your party will not be in Government under any condition this term. Can you promise to the franchise that you will not be in Government this term?
    2) How do you aim to close tax loopholes?
    3) You mention creating garden cities, one of the promises you broke. Will this pledge keep being repeated at every General Election?
    4) Why would you invest in Northern cities in particular?
    5) As Nigel pointed out recently, you've only managed to achieve 2 out of the 12 promises you made at the last General Election. What's your excuse for this and how can you guarantee that you won't break promises in the term ahead?


    DMcGovern cranbrook_aspie - the Socialists have had an outstanding term with regards to legislation and it has been good to work with you on the occasional project too. I like the professional look of your manifesto and of course agree with the majority of the content. :cool: Here are some questions:

    1) You are obviously one of two left-wing parties standing in this election, along with Labour. Why should a left-wing TSR member who is unsure how to vote, vote for you instead of Labour?
    2) Do you believe there should be a limit to how much trade union power should be increased by?
    3) When you say 'increase NHS funding', are there any specific areas you want to invest in?
    4) What sustainable energies would you invest in and why?
    5) Do you believe your small number of active members could help or hinder you next term?


    Unown Uzer - UKIP seems to have had a steady term despite losing a few of its members. I have to admit though, I did prefer the look of the manifesto at the last GE. Here are some questions:

    1) Your reason why people shouldn't vote for Labour is because they are 'drug abusers' and have 'admitted to commiting lewd and lascivious acts in public'. Where is the evidence for this and why is it relevant to this election?
    2) Immigration does seem to play a key role in your policies, both in the legislation you've created this term and in your manifesto. What would you say to those who believe UKIP's focus is too narrow?
    3) What would, in your opinion, be a 'sensible number' for immigration levels.
    4) Is it true that UKIP tried to set up a ConUKIP coalition in the middle of this term?
    5) TSR UKIP appears to be quite a right-wing party. Is this is a fair assumption and if so, are you planning for your party to stay like this for the forseeable future?



    Green Party - your manifesto is a class above the others and I commend you for the hard effort put in. Here are some questions:

    1) Why
    2) Haven't
    3) You
    4) Submitted
    5) A Manifesto?



    I will be interested to hear all your responses.
    PetrosAC Unown Uzer - thoughts?

    PetrosAC Unown Uzer - thoughts?
    Sorry, hadn't seen this before.

    1) Unless we're the largest party, I can confirm we will not be entering Government. This is so we can be uncompromising in our strong, liberal values and potentially hold the balance of power over any right-wing or left-wing coalition formed. This also means the next Government that forms will either be LabSoc or ConKip, with independents also coming into play should they be elected, which makes things interesting.

    2) We'd probably submit a motion for the Government to act on, as it is finance related and would most likely have to be done by the Chancellor through the Budget. This does not mean we will not push for it, and we will certainly vote for it.

    3) It's something we didn't get to do in Government last time, but we believe it's important to have more houses built, but to also have nice environments for people to live in.

    4) The North has long been neglected and is in dire need of investment compared to the rest of the country, so we'd be looking to make up for that shortfall, especially in terms of infrastructure.

    5) We submitted legislation for plenty more than just those 2 pledges, and we implemented other things that didn't quite make it onto our manifesto. There is not a lot we can do when a Labour Party that claims to be moderate votes against a finance bill that is in the best interests of the people.

    Manchester is good for gun crime- It will never be close to being second city it needed to borrow areas from lancashire to be as big as it is at current, in every thousand people 2 would be convicted for a crime related to guns- have you heard of the term Gunchester, If the government invested as much into Birmingham as it did Manchester, Manchester will never compete

    I must say, you've done an excellent job of insulting large areas of England so far, and you're not even elected yet! My advice is to wait until after the election before alienating people:yep:
