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.

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!


I think Corbyn had his own party, it was called the Labour Party, of course it had an outstanding result in December 2019.

Boris is popular-the latest poll shows the gap between Tories and Labour widening.That’s my point.

Labour lost its soul to the ‘metropolitan intellectuals’-they have zero connection with the northern working class, hence the red wall has opted for nationalism via Brexit-and Boris was the only guy who offered it.

Yeah i realised your point was about the pills after I posted. If Jezza was still in charge Johnson wouldn't be ahead. He can do whatever he wants at the moment at still be ahead as Starmer is crap.

Sorry Mush but Corbyn was an utter clown-he was demolished in the 2019 election because the public don’t trust him.

You should read The Future of Capitalism.It’s a challenging read for the left and social democrats and explains why the Labour Party don’t represent the majority anymore

I think that Starmer has been taking notes from the Americans.

Yet whilst the Americans lapped it up and believed that Trump was farming fire breathing Dragons to take over the world we the British public are not as gullible and our patience is stretched when our political landscape is turned into nothing but a circus.

If Corbyn had been PM when the pandemic struck we'd still be having meetings about a first lockdown.

I haven't seen one single person on here who doesn't agree that things are worse now than 11 years ago- quantity/ quality of Governmnet services have declined, man in the street has less in his pocket, nothing for the kids, no optimism. But the same people who shout Beech has to go after putting us in the top half of the table support Johnson and denigrate Beech for making endless excuses for failure.

No election or referendum since 1995 has been won by a candidate not supported by Rupert Murdoch. Thank God we don't live in one of those countries where the population is blinded by oppressive propaganda eh?

Corbyn is honest and has integrity. How is someone with the morals of Murdoch, the Barclay's or Johnson ever going to cope with that?

He'd of went to the meeting meeting Johnson didn't go to and actually taken it seriously.

I’m not a big Boris fan but I doubt 34 million people would have had a first vaccine dose and over 14 million had a second if Corbyn had been at the helm.

How do you know? The vaccine is the only thing the government have got right regarding covid.

It’s a pretty big thing to get right though. I’m sure there would have been plenty of Labour mistakes!

Corbyn was only a man 'for the people' in his own head - in reality he never listened to them and just did what 'he' wanted.

It was confusing for me with Brexit as I could imagine Boris and his Tory counterparts hob-nobbing with the EU bureaucrats in my head quite easily and Corby and his cronies dead against this elite and trying their hardest to stop it but in reality it was the opposite.

I cannot believe anyone thinks Corbyn has any credibility-read about his daliance with Dianne Abbot and it will put you off your dinner!!

Really? The furlough scheme and the SEISS scheme aren't perfect but, what would things have looked like if the Govt hadn't put them in place? Labour would have had little choice other than to have implemented something similar or the country would be in a far worse place than we are. By all means slate them, but to be fair, you have to praise when it's due, and at this moment in time we don't have massive unemployment and masses of people unable to pay rent and mortgages. I doubt very much that Corbo would have gambled and ordered the vaccine, he would have dithered and we'd be scrambling like the rest of the EU.

Sacked minister Johnny Mercer has said Boris Johnson’s government is the “most distrustful, awful environment I’ve ever worked in”.

In an extraordinary attack on Johnson’s administration 24 hours after he left it, Mercer claimed “almost nobody” in the government tells the truth.

His diatribe, in an interview on Times Radio, didn’t end there.

It also extended to the “cesspit” of Westminster, which he said is populated by “children” who are “frankly unemployable elsewhere”.

And he’s a Conservative MP who is trying to defend two British soldiers that were been prosecuted for killing an IRA commander back in the 70s
