Re: Time for change
I live in a town where Airy Neve was MP until he was assassinated by the IRA. I got to know know an elderly lady who is a great socialist. She told me many years ago, helping the Labour candidate for votes in a general election the Labour candidate was a lords younger son. She went around the houses introducing him as the honourable whatever. One woman answered the door with three small children in great poverty and answered as she was asked for the Labour vote, her father would turn in his grave if she voted Labour. Have other funny replies to people introduced to the Lord son. At this moment in time we have Layla Moran as our MP and I was told the right way to pronounce her name was MORRan,
That is the English way, we in the North East have been using the Irish way, Moran, I didnít know that.
