Hi Greengrass,

Emma Dent Coad is far from racist. She is a very good woman and respected across Kensington from North to South. I remember when they dug this blog post up and black people who actually know Shaun Bailey and other POC agreed with her and stood by her! Shaun Bailey is just not liked in North Kensington where he grew up and has made some offensive and outrageous statements and made manoeuvres to further his career,lots of people have said this about him. He is very ambitious and aggressive and a slippery character. There is a special place among us POC for POC politicians like him, Priti Patel and Sajid Javid. Emma did apologise for the offence caused though :)

The question is where is investigation for Boris and his racist remarks? Why have the Tory party on the whole gotten away with Islamaphobia and the Windrush ordeal which is still very raw?

The UN report a few years ago said that UK poverty is spiralling out of control and that there is no safety net for people who need it starting from 2010. I am no Marxist and I accept life is unfair and unequal but we need to help people move upwards in life not down. This is damning for the Tories and shameful for the UK

I voted Green for most of my life because Tony Blair is a War criminal. But I'm voting Labour this time. I genuinely like our MP Dr Rosena and she deserves to stay.

We are free to choose now

Happy voting all

GuyD73:

Strangely enough, I have had another account here for years, which I chose not to use. Given your reaction, it should be blindingly obvious as to why I didn't post under it. Some people can be very ugly when demonstrating their political views. Thank you for putting yourself up as a prime example in this regard.

Why do you want to know my favourite drinking hole, by the way? Were you planning to "pay me a visit" and have a frank and open discussion with me?

I see you challenge literally NONE of my points either. At least Starr here, though she disagrees with me, has at least been decent enough to be civil and polite, and repudiate some of the things I have said.

I voted as I try to over years. Thanks Guy. NOT HEARD ON LAST VOTE, WHY WASTE MY TIME TO GO VOTE ON A AWFUL, COLD and rainy day. Cause I can.. and did. 
My vote was not heard last time and even if not heard this time, still its a vote. 
Always Green

Guy - maybe it’s now time you wound your neck in on all the local social media and accept that the majority of the U.K (there is life outside the London Labour/Remain bubble) do not share your views and majority are not necessarily wrong.

We are all different and everyone’s views count equally.

Brexit will not be overturned now, it’s time to come up with positives, not negatives about the countries direction.

Life is too short to be an angry person, like I feel you come across.

I also feel politics needs to be left out of all local websites like Nappyvalley.

"I also feel politics* needs to be left out of all local websites like Nappyvalley."  (*National)  -  Amen.

Daddydaycare- couldn’t agree with you more. 

Julian- most local social media has always been apolitical and focussed on local issues. Unfortunately, users like Guy have corrupted or abused theses platforms (hence being banned\  suspended numerous time).

Time to take back control (😂) of our local media and focus on local issues. Also time for people like Guy to give the rest of us a break from Brexit....

I wonder if Guy also feels he has now “won” the argument
