"The General Election isn't about Brexit" is as good as saying "the referendum wasn't about immigration." Yes, the referendum was surrounded by other pressing issues but immigration was the defining characteristic for a large swathe of voters. And the defining issue of this snap election is Brexit. To say otherwise is naïve at best and madness at worst.
The ingeniousness of it was staggering, in one fail swoop she has shut down the likes of Diane Abbott who have been saying since August that she is unelected. She has shut down the SNP and made it clear the election will resolve the issue of Indyref2. She has shut down Tim Farron and Jeremy Corbyn who continually say that the country didn't vote for this Brexit or that Brexit. In one swoop of daring, combative and confident gauntlet throwing she has cast all their aspersions aside letting them know, that once this is done that will be the end to it.
When it comes to community pharmacy it really does seem that the Government has been trying to pull the wool over our eyes. In December 2015 Ministers announced that hundreds of millions of pounds would be taken from pharmacy budgets over several years. The sector, they said, should make its fair share of efficiency savings.
I on the other hand, wondered what the shitting hell had happened to me. My body had been violated, I was exhausted and all of a sudden I had to deal with this crying seven pound bundle of skin and hair. I wondered where my motherly instinct had pissed off to and why I had no idea as to what type of cry my baby was making. Please tell me I am not the only one who could not decipher, hungry, tired, sick and bored cries?
Even if the Chancellor comes up with extra funding in the budget it will only be a sticking plaster so we should not allow the public to be fooled into thinking that's job done. A long term, sustainable approach is needed and history has told us the Labour Party are the only ones who can deliver that.
I had slumped down in a chair and was unaware of the commotion, as a swarm of doctors and midwives surrounded me and hoisted me up onto a bed. A short time later, I opened my eyes to find myself breathing through an oxygen mask and shaking uncontrollably. All I could hear repeatedly were the words, 'We need blood!'
Break down the result of the referendum and you will see that the growing division in England and Wales is not between North and South - or even left and right - but between towns and cities. We are increasingly a country made up of two groups of people whose shared experiences, political priorities and outlook, on the surface, are united on the surface by very little at all.
On this week's Commons People, the team consider if Labour is on the verge of yet another leadership contest after Clive Lewis quit the Shadow Cabinet. Labour's Gisela Stuart is dubbed a "liar" by a former colleague after she voted against an amendment calling for the rights of EU nationals in the UK to be protected in any Brexit deal.
The uncertainty created by Brexit means that the reliance in recent years on recruitment from the EU is no longer available to shore up the numbers. Our NHS staff cannot keep giving more at the same time that we are giving them less, the Government needs to reinstate bursaries and end pay restraint - we cannot afford not to.
Should Labour, in the final analysis, be seen to have in effect collaborated or at least stood by motionless as the Tories go hell for leather for a Hard Brexit, then its perceived waving through of Article 50 will be interpreted as a colossal act of cynicism, which many of the 48%, and indeed many loyal Labour voters, may not be able to forgive.
Fairness and justice are the pillars on which successful, happy societies are built. The present system that siphons so much wealth to the top 1% to the impoverishment of the rest is not fair, nor just. Failure to take action will result in the whole of society becoming poorer. Jeremy Corbyn is spot on; salaries of company bosses should be no more than 20 times the wage of its lowest-paid worker.
