Now the GE is done and dusted, and with MP’s returning to Parliament today to begin being sworn in, we’ve locked the GE Thread last night, and you can now use this one for any Westminster related stuff.

Anything Brexit related will be moved to the ongoing Brexit Thread!

If you are quoting, please add a link to back it up. Post without and the quote may be removed.

Thanks.

This one is for you Richard

We will never know what would have happened here - well maybe we are now with the high cases.

Cases have increased now, as they will with more testing, but deaths are on average.

Wee nippy broke the rules - Nicola Sturgeon 'broke Covid rules at funeral' https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-55419564

She’s not exempt - so since she went on and on about Cummings maybe she should lead by example and resign.

Several Brexit party ex MEPs seem to think a deals been made tonight. A really bad one, especially for fish, in exchange for reopening the borders.

We need a deal and any deals better than no deal right now. Problem is it looks like a complete sell out and not really a Brexit at all.

Article in Telegraph notes that the difference in the the two camps on fishing is less than the cost of Paul Pogba-all down to the French.

There is no unity in the EU in a crisis-it’s every man for himself

No real surprises there, just the French being the French. Excellent time for Brexit, they sell more to us than we sell to them. All we need is a strong leader will balls......

Yup-I think commonsense will prevail here.We need their market to sell the fish and don’t have enough boats anyway.Whg don’t they just call it a European fleet, hand out licences/quotas, and we retain ownership of the water?
Looks like the start of something important is happening in Russia. Good on em. *#£& Putin!

She can’t keep out the Headlines!

Terrible vaccination figures for Scotland over the weekend. Shame they’ll be whitewashed by the demotion of Joanna Cherry today!

Fancy this too (From the attached link):

The SNP's reshuffle gives roles to every MP except the three seen as closest to former first minister Alex Salmond: Ms Cherry, East Lothian MP Kenny MacAskill and Western Isles MP Angus MacNeil.

The next few weeks will be fun with the upcoming submissions from Salmond and Sturgeon into the Inquiry!

It's beautiful stuff, for the first time they've had a steady lead in the Indy polls, but now they've decided to tear themselves apart :)

The cybergnats are all gnashing about "toary plants aye" but what's that saying about each political movement containing the seeds of its own destruction? One of Joey Essex's deeper quotes that.

With Labour trailing in the polls it looks like Starmer hasn't been able to purge the old left of left, so it appears he is now a dead man walking.

They wan't McDonnell back as Party leader, Bojo will be loving it.

Whilst not their biggest fan in the past I don't think that the Tories will come out of the whole pandemic situation too badly, I don't think that they could have done much more and yes mistakes happened but given a choice at the time of having Corbyn deal with the situation would have ben a disaster as he would have sent all of the vaccinations to Argentina, Bolivia or wherever his newest campaign was targeted at.

Even Brexit has been sorted - imagine if their was no pandemic and we were all on here gan radge about bananas going up four pence a pound and horror stories of some poor sod having to wait a couple of weeks extra to get their passport sorted.

Thank God the Tories brought in Kate Bingham in to run the Government Vaccine Taskforce. One thing is certain Corbyn wouldn't have done that. He'd have set up a committee of civil servants to procure vaccines.

And were Starmer Prime Minister, we'd be part of the European Medicines Agency with just 3% of the population vaccinated, just like other members of EMA, which would be an even worse outcome than even Corbyn would have managed.

One things for sure, after the Tories jettisoned all their clever politicians we now have a bog brush in charge who gave contracts to their mates and 120,000 dead - it's hard to see anyone else doing as badly

The significance on the next couple of weeks should not be underestimated. If sleazy Salmond wins, Nickerless has no alternative but to resign, thems' the rules !!

If Knickerless resigns, the Scottish Independence movement is gone, for ever.

Whatever the outcome, it should be compelling politics.

Typically Scottish, they always turn on each other, always have and always will.

The big issue within the SNP now is how transphobic you are rather than independence. They've went full 'Brent Council' on the self identification - now if you reckon a bearded sex pest called Keith shouldn't be allowed to self declare as a female to get a cushy sentence in a women's prison (where they can sex pest some more) you're a big transphobic [censored]
