Set up a two firing-point ambush either side of the road, directly opposite each other so the assessors judged they killed themselves when the target showed up.


David Davis is ex SAS He’s trained to survive. He’s also trained to take people out. #Brexit

No, no he is definitely ex SAS Nadine says so :mrgreen:
We had a meeting at work today and I was asked what steps I would take in the event of a fire. Apparently "fucking big ones" wasn't the right answer

You know, I'm sick of following my dreams, man. I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with 'em later.

Saw a tweet this morning questioning whether May would be in office when Trump arrives on Friday. Suddenly starting to look very real :lol:

It's all collapsing nicely, isn't it? What a useless bunch of cunts our politicians are.

ha, yeah.... it'd obviously be nice to think that clown Johnson going would be a step towards, y'know, something halfway resembling a well-functioning government to emerge.

sadly [or not], it'll obvs be the springboard for more nonsense.

Rees-Mogg vs the silent assassin Davis vs BoJo for the Brexit extremist leadership role; what a fucking hilarious fight that would be to watch.

nice quote from Angela Rayner on Twitter: "Boris Johnson has now resigned, the HMS Tory Party is sinking fast, Tories cannot even move the deckchairs around as there is nobody to sit in them any more."

er, and you got the shadow education gig exactly how, hun?

More resignations coming...

The Tory Party is ungovernable. Sadly, they govern the country. Rees-Mogg is so far up his own arse he is invisible.

I did wonder up there whether this was all already laid in the runes, and the chequers bit would be the trigger.

Watching the live feed of the house statement now, it's extraordinary, the body language...

It’s both hilarious and terrifying. Seems like all options are there between Rees-Mogg hard Brexit jackboot fascism and a Red Tory moderate pushing for a snap election and ditching Brexit altogether.

Rumblings of tense meetings at notorious heterosexual Liam Fox's offices.

Pathetic this considering what’s at stake. Older middle aged boys fucking around flexing their tiny muscles at a time when they should be sorting out the biggest mess the country has gotten itself into in 50 years. (Ignoring the bloody mess incompetence has caused in the Mid East and Northern Africa) ... They really are a disgrace the lot of them. Party politics should have been out the window 12 months ago while they sorted the exit agreement out. Surely we all saw these events coming 18 months ago

Who’d bet against Boris meeting Trump anyway? Probably on a golf course in Scotland:(

Private Eye taught me many years ago how utterly inept and venal the cunts are, and they've only got worse.

Owd Shakey is always yer man when it comes to politics.
Normally it's one of the Henriad series. Up to now Brexit
has been Richard II.
It's just tipped over into Julius Caesar.
Fantastic show.
Mirrors and copulation are abominable, since they both multiply the numbers of men.
