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.

Watching Marr tearing Sturgeon to bits was a beautiful thing.No plan exposed for what it is, she resorted to filliblustering

I see that Chadwick Boseman's entourage are outraged after the Oscars snub where he was denied a posthumous statue after it went to Sir Anthony Hopkins.

This sense of entitlement is getting out of control.

The national news again is led by " who paid for Boris`s refurbishment of his flat"....Does anyone care less.

Keir Starmer is all over the television demanding an answer...With the local elections and a bi election in Hartlipool
coming up you`d think the Labour party would have something better than to throw at the Tories than who paid for
some wallpaper.... Its pathetic.

Loose big in the May elections and Keir Starmer could be on his way out.

I feel sorry for Starmer. He's intelligent, he's likeable but he comes across as dull. His shadow cabinet is even worse. The electorate know that Boris is a lying rogue but they still vote for him. Boris has given Northern communities hope that things are going to change for the better. Labour currently offer nothing. Who could replace Starmer? I don't know. Andy Burnham is too miserable - probably because of decades supporting Everton. It'll be interesting in Wales to see if Labour remain in control of the Senedd or whether Plaid Cymru get a lot of support. These elections are going to be a big challenge for Labour.

I don't like Starmer - something about him, I don't think he knows what he wants.

He doesn't help himself as whenever I see him he is still going on about how it isn't too late to re-join the EU 'vote for Labour and I will get us back in' has he not learned that we are pig sick of Brexit and the world has changed since then where there are more immediate concerns?

If it was Starmer. Corbyn, Johnston whoever - I really don't give a flying one who paid for the wallpapering 'wallpaper-gate' indeed.

Perfect time for a bright young thing to emerge in politics.

The thing about all this isn't the wallpaper bit it's the total corruption and ineptitude of this Govt. How apparently a majority of the public would still vote for them is unbelievable and sad that they lack the intelligence to see what's going on working class people are being lied to and screwed by Boris and his mob yet still vote for him.
The list of obscenities by this Govt grows by the day. One of the worst thinks things is what's happening to the NHS it's nigh on impossible to even see a Dr now let alone get any treatment.
Unfortunately non of the parties are any good.

It's interesting how GMB are hanging onto this 'wallpapergate' story like a life raft. Indicating Bojo is a deceptive, lying toerag, which we all know he is, the only difference is, he thrives off it. The outcome will decide Starmers future, if he fails to gain any traction from this, he is toast. Making a photo opportunity in John Lewis makes the whole thing look frivolous, a big mistake.

The hypocrisy of the London elite is mind blowing, money buy's influence, if in doubt check out Aaron Banks or Jon Lansman, Cash for Honours, etc, etc, etc,,,,,,

My favourite bit has the coverage from India. These poor souls so desperate they are literally dying in the streets. Shocking for all right-minded people. A tear drifts down my cheek as I type this, such woe from the merciless pandemic that has killed so many.
It also fails to mention that the only city that has seen a rise in deaths is Delhi, and the rise is 200 deaths a day, in a city that averages nearly 2500 deaths a day. Great Britain averages about 1800 for context. Perhaps something to do with the fact that Jonson is nearly at the signing stage of the UK India trade agreement. The first clause Modi insisted on before talks opened, visa free movement. So Brexit, that shrieked that 300m Turks could come here will now open the door to 1.7bn Indians, a country that already has significant migration due to water shortages.
But what can we do when confronted with such appalling scenes as the BBC shows? Invite them to Britain apparently

Strange thing is, his poll ratings have gone up, while Starmer's have gone down. In addition the Tory Party polling has gone up and Labour has gone down.

It seem's the more Bojo sticks two fingers up to the system, the more we lap him up.

Starmer seem's a straight'ish intelligent politician, is it him, or are people simply fed up of Labour ?

One thing is for sure, weak opposition = weak Governance..............

What can Labour do to gain ground, as 'wallpapergate' ain't going to do it I'm afraid.

Is it time to get back towards the middle ground, as hanging around on the left is killing them.

Boris is ‘populism’ which is in just now-but it can quickly go into reverse.

Nothing wrong with being popular of course

I agree, however the weight from above (Unison) is overwhelming by the look of things.

Lansman (Momentum) got Corbyn into place, and has a strong following from the young voters, however they make a noise, but don't turn up at the polling stations.His massive following and member numbers were incredible, however it turned the traditional Labour voters off. His image had allot to do with it.

The strong pull to the left needs curtailed, however when your paymasters live their, how do you appeal to the majority ?

What the hell as equality got to do with Labour and Starmer's abysmal polling, other than the traditional red wall voters not believing in it ?

You're right he is no opposition. Labour stands for equality normally I was meaning, Starmer on the other hand is basically a Tory.

A lot of people who voted this Govt in stand to lose their jobs, access to a free medical care through the NHS and end up paying for the super rich to get richer.
Boris and his ilk look down on us oinks (his term)
Obviousness he's right as they are willing to keep in power a Govt that's laughing in their faces.
If only there was another strong party to challenge them cos right now there isn't.
Labour have missed umpteen chances to go for the jugular for serious issues and the one they chose to use is wallpaper gate really.

Just a shame Corbyn hasn't started his own party as it might get these arseholes out!
