Well GN threads reflect what's in the news, which is awash with articles about both the leaders of the main parties, the controversial issues that pertain to them and other high profile MPs. Although Mary Berry may divide opinions, I don't think making a comparison between a tv cookery personality and the leader of the opposition is a good one.
As for threads about family dynamics, they too run and run and will continue to do so because families occupy so much of our time, particularly when things go wrong.
Most of the threads reflect the nature of GN, although to be fair to oldMeg, maybe over on MN possibly there aren't as many threads about JC.
