One of the last posts suggests Baker does not claim for a second home this is not true. He claims for a flat in London together with bills for gas and electricIty and council tax. He even claims for food! The bizarre thing is he also claims for a full rail season ticket. You can google and see his expenses. I am just correcting a post that says he does not claim for a second home that is not true.

Realistic Person: No harm in Jeremy putting the record straight, NB's supporters are so hell bent on attempting to make him appear squeaky clean that they would like us all to ignore the evidence that shows he possibly isn't. NB may not be in the duck house league but he is there, let's be honest!!!

Feline: Hadn't realised that you were the one making decisions on who could post on this forum, I had the silly idea that what makes it such a good forum is the very posting of such diverse opinions on all matters, not just politics.
However why are you so concerned about conservatives, could it be the chance that we may win Lewes?

Jeremy. You wrote: "He is one of the most expensive MPs in the house of commons." This is a lie and therefore you are a liar. By coming onto a public forum and providing proof that Conservatives are dishonest, you discourage people from voting for them. Please keep up the good work.

Telling me to go away without explanation is too easy. By the way I won't be going away, unless Brown gets back in, but you probably guessed that.

J R Sussex. The J wouldn't stand for Jeremy by any chance would it? Running round Lewes Forum trying to pretend there are more Tories in the town than there actually are?

As I said in another post, If the tories felt they had a realistic chance of winning Lewes, why put Zuckermann up as the candidate?

Clifford: No the J does not stand for Jeremy, he seems quite capable of fighting his own corner. Amazing how the little bit of information he released in the first post of this thread has caused such a outburst from NB's supporters. I sense a level of apprehension slowly creeping into the LibDem camp. Let's see how the TV hustings go tonight.

So what, he's allowed to claim for a flat and living expenses. So what that he has a season ticket for the train. You will often see NB on the last train out of London. I think he might be allowed to see his family once in a while! Equally if three is a late night debate he might stay over. He's not fiddling his expenses just claiming what he is entitled to.

If you really do believe the Tories are going to win in Lewes jrsussex I think you need to change your astrologer. As things are it doesn't even look as if the Tories are going to win in England. The older people are the more likely they are to vote and they haven't forgotten what it was like under the Tories last time: the mass unemployment, the vicious selfish nastiness encouraged by Thatcher and her vegetables.

Clifford - the more and more I read of your rants against the Tories based on what happened decades ago, the more I despair. My background includes public school, a job in the City and the Army but I was quite pleased when Labour (eventually) beat the Tories in the 90s (hey, I even helped sell them some of their IT at labour HQ!). Similarly, before then, I was quite pleased that the Tories beat Labour. Why? Because they'd both started off well then gone bad, become complacent and were no longer good for the Country. That's what's happened now - New Labour (shouldn't they drop the 'new' bit now?) have done their time, they did well at first but now their time is up. Locally the same argument could be applied to ol'Norm - time for a change perhaps?
But wait, let's see what they have to say and then decide rather that trot out the old 'I hate Margeret Thatcher' clichés to every mention of the Conservatives on these forums?

Well said Oliver. Local Libdems are against anything in a blinkered way. Surely if they tried to be more positive our community would be united to help Newhaven rather than each area thinking of themselves. Baker has really managed to set each community against each other always trying to blame others for things that have gone wrong. Real responsibilty comes from being accountable and accepting responsibility.
That is why the Libdems would put the country into a crisis if there is a hung parliament. Rather than sort the economy out they would spend weeks arguing about the electoral system. Self interest again I am afraid as they benefit the most.
Unless we get a strong government we will end up like Greece with the IMF sorting our economy out. The Libdems should remember that time as they were in coalition with Labour. Come clean as David Owen said in the Standard newpaper the country has a right to know who the libdems will support in the end. We are looking at the disaster situtation where we have our own crisis as happened in the usa when there was a hung vote between Bush and Gore in 2000. It will be a disaster for our economy, jobs, everyone.
