IT HAS BEEN another busy day in the general election of 2019. With the news that the Brexit Party had decided not to stand in Harlow, we once again went up to the A414 opposite the Miller and Carter, and spoke to the Conservative candidate, Robert Halfon as he campaigned by the side of the road in order to gauge his response.

Good to see he's wrapped up warm with a thick coat. I hope he's taking frequent breaks, and doesn't catch a cold. Stay safe Robert. He mentions his voting record. What he didn't mention is that he voted FOR the Norway Plus option, against the party whip, during the "Meaningful Votes" process. This option was supported at the time by Labour. Farrage also seemed to like the type of deal that Norway has back in 2016. The Norway Plus option includes a customs union, a close single market relationship and guarantees of rights and protections. So the thing that Robert voted for is in many ways exactly what Labour are proposing.

Typical, just asking, how many times has Corbyn done an about turn ?

No idea, would their voting record, as suggested by RH, be worth checking? From TheyWorkForYou.com : How Jeremy Corbyn voted on Social Issues Consistently voted for equal gay rights (RH Generally voted against equal gay rights) Consistently voted for smoking bans (RH Generally voted against smoking bans) Consistently voted for the hunting ban (RH - no data) Consistently voted for allowing marriage between two people of same sex (RH Generally voted against allowing marriage between two people of same sex) Almost always voted for laws to promote equality and human rights (RH Generally voted against laws to promote equality and human rights) Voted against allowing terminally ill people to be given assistance to end their life (RH Voted against allowing terminally ill people to be given assistance to end their life) (I didn't bother checking any more, but it is easy to find on TheyWorkForYou.com.) "Consistently" appears to mean 0 or 1 vote against. "Generally" appears to mean 3 or more votes against. I could be wrong, it's a small sample size. On this (very!) small sample, JC has shown less "about turns" than RH. Thanks for prompting me to check TheyWorkForYou.com to compare their voting records.

As I disagree with almost everything that Corbyn stands for. I'm closer to what R H deems right, to say the least, peculiar choices of subjects in anyone's language.
