(I especially love how this activity induces fascists to mutter darkly about how "this kind of thing ends in somebody getting hurt", as if Jo Cox just didn't register in their tiny minds.)

You do have to have a laugh sometimes. No doubt she will claim that it was taken out of context.

I read that the vile witch now got the sack. :salute:

Vile witch? She made a dumb comment. It's not like she, for instance, illegally funded an attack on constitutional democracy.... Which is like all things unworthy of acid attack.


What's your point Rob? It's not clear.

highly unoriginal observations but, yeah:

(1) these kind of 'attacks' are moderately useful on a one-off basis, to give the public a feel for [one aspect of] the measure of the 'victim', as with milliband a couple of years ago

https://www.dailyecho.co.uk/news/176541 ... uthampton/

(2) it'd be a nonsense if the same candidate [other than perhaps a thug like 'robinson'] kept getting the same treatment time after time.

Yeah it was a dumb comment and she's paid the price :lol: I think that hoping it's acid that's thrown over him next time is a pretty shit thing to wish for, but you disagree?

Perhaps a visit to some acid attack victims will help her focus a little......now she's got a lot of fucking time on her hands.

Sacking your party leader / PM the night before an election is a novel tactic for sure, but I’m not totally convinced it will work.

Suggestions that significant numbers of EU residents, registered to vote, are being turned away at polling stations. Fuck me, this really is becoming a banana republic.

Forms not processed in time because council (or whoever) cuts.




We aspire hopelessly to the heights of banana republic status. We can't even grow and pick the fruit.

So who do Ballers want to lead the UK into its bright populist EU free future? Johnson, Lidington, Raab, Grove or Hunt? Must be so exciting for you all, maybe not as exciting as promotion to the EPL, but nearly :cheers: :bounce:

There's part off me that wants to see BoJo kill the party, but then reality kicks in.

But it will be him, and it will be tragicomic.

I also deeply enjoy the majestic stupidity of the likes of Truss thinking they're Potential PMs.

It would be hilarious if we were on the outside looking in. :(

The tragicomedy will becomes apparent the moment he tries to claim he’s going to ‘work for everyone’. That there’ll likely (?) be a swift GE will reduce it still further, given s choice between grandad and the monkey, which only (just) works as a good name for a band.
I like it. What is it?

As I believe I mentioned elsewhere, my prediction for this season was fourth and promotion via the play-offs. I got close. I also said, a while back now, that Boris would one day be PM. Let's hope I'm just as wide of the mark here, eh?

Are politicians everywhere just as fucking useless as ours? There are plenty of signs to suggest it's so. They warn nothing at all from events.

There are competent moderates in the current Cabinet, such as Phillip Hammond, but they would have no chance in a barmy electoral system where a short list of two is put before 120,000 increasingly out of touch and barmy extremists.

It is for that reason that I suspect even saner Conservatives are starting to see Johnson as a “least bad” option compared with those such as Dominic Raab.

Johnson may be a chancer with no grasp of anything vaguely resembling a brief, but this disinterest in policy detail does at least (in theory) make him open to persuasion before his opinion on a policy has become fixed.

So, it is starting to look like the UK electorate will indeed face a diabolical choice at the next election between Johnson and Corbyn. Sadly, this seems to be what happens in the modern era when the election of party leaders is handed over to increasingly extremist and polarising echo chamber memberships.

I fear for your economy. The capacity for bad politicians to wreak havoc on an economy - no matter how advanced - is far greater than the capacity of good politicians to generate economic strength.
There will be no end to the problems afflicting mankind until economists become rulers, or, by some miracle, rulers become economists.

That daft old shagger Mellor was on the BBC this morning saying that he'd heard there would be 17 candidates and, as a betting man, if you see a race with 17 nags and little of note between them, you know you're not looking at a field with any quality. Fair enough.

Terrible choice for PM finally gives up after failing to do anything at all. What a shock.

Failure to deliver Brexit is absolutely, unequivocally 100% her fault. Lancaster House, red lines, all that shite. And all came about because she saw the whole process as an exercise in managing her own party and nothing to do with national interest.

Honestly, even as a remainer and with no direct experience of politics, I could have got us out by now.

And the time between now and the deadline will be taken up by a Tory leadership circus.
