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.

Yes indeed

Wag the Dog is the best film on the need a war front
Any Prime Minister who ‘needs a war’ really needs to go.

As for today’s meeting, it’s resulted in yet more dither and delay. We know what’s coming, and I can’t help but see this wait as purely political from a lame duck PM who’s being held to ransom by a cabinet already manoeuvring to replace him.

It’s a sad day when this guy carries sway
Can’t say the sight of this impresses me, but the PM can’t afford to be losing his working class converts. Possibly an isolated incident, but not something Conservative HQ are going to need to see too much of before they give him the final push from the cliff top…

An even sadder day when people like him don't speak up. You may not agree with him, and after listening , to be fair the biggest thing he is guilty of is stating the obvious, but in this country in particular, what we need most is an opposition.

He's just saying exactly what does go on and can't really argue with him tbh - unless you are one of the rich (and getting much richer as we speak) elite who thought some of the general public hadn't yet cottoned on.

The Banking collapse placed us all in the hands of those with the loot. The Banks basically stopped lending (as they had nowt to lend) so the super rich made hay while the sun shined. They were willing to take on risk - at a price.

However, the alternative is like an Afghanistan, once vibrant and growing, until the Commi's took over in the 70's, the downward spiral is what we see today.

Unfortunately, and this comes from talking to an ex MP and two government advisers...
It's almost impossible to be elected an MP and hold on to the position now unless you're corrupt.
You may not directly have your hand out but you're certainly willing to ignore and protect those above you who do.
A position in government and, worse still, a place in the cabinet is almost conclusive proof you're on the take...if that's the situation then the people with the most cash will always have their ear and have them at the end of a string.

Until you hold people properly accountable it'll just rumble on and on like this...
Teresa May should have been prosecuted for ensuring her Husbands company got the contract to transport prisoners for example...
Whoever gave that MP and his pals the contract for cross channel ferry's/freight when he didn't have any experience or any ships...
Cash For questions under Labour...Cameron using his position to lobby illegally...
There's loads of them and they just seem to vanish under the nearest rug once exposed.

Totally agree about that phonecall, he got that badly wrong, and then kept a lot of the reasons why he did it very quiet which might have been right or wrong, who knows.

It's rather difficult to take the moral high ground with either politicians of pundits though, for example if you were going to look for a lying, self-serving toad, you need to look no further than the prime minister, he really does give a bad name to politicians.

Whereas the Tories who cut money for children cancer hospices do speak for you? Going to be a long list if you are going to play moral top trumps.

If you take covid just as an example.
Boris we must shut pubs, shut the football, all get vaccinated, r values, lots and lots of cases, we must count anyone who has had covid and died as a death blah blah
Starmer, I agree. The lib dems whoever I agree, Sturgeon I agree, the Greens us too.
Open up google, 250 articles, word for word, Boris is right. Zero dissent, no discussion.


Covid is just one example. Machine-gunning Syrian women, all agree. Tax cuts for corporations, no dissenting here, but we'll put NIC up, aye we need to do that. Taxpayers pay for bail-outs or to develop vaccines, it's their duty, we're in it together. One voice, one story

Russell Brand, as unfunny as I find him, is at least a small voice of balance. Which means he'll be gone soon anyway

Well if anyone was in any doubt about the stupidity of your logic, Russell Brand "is at least a small voice of balance".

Is this the same dxxk head that along with that other plonker Ross phoned a guy to tell him he had sxxxged his grand daughter, then promptly fxxed off to America ?

So he is your type of person that gives a balanced view ?

Based on that misguided assumption, you should be Bojo's cheer leader.

So you are going to sit on your sofa needlessly with a bag on our head for 2 years and lose the NHS while Matt Hancock's neighbour gets paid £15m for non-existent PPE because the only man who speaks reason can be a bit of a dick after a few beers. Are you Clara Davis?

Rodders you plonker.

No news of one of Scotland’s very few companies to receive the full Covid payment is owned by Pete Wishart?

No news on the £100m shortfall in council funding whilst squirrelling £350 UK taxpayers cash for a referendum which isn’t and can’t happen

No news on a £37m guarantee on an aluminium smelter which turns out to actually be £161m

No news on a school survey asking 14 year olds if they’ve had anal sex

Worse for Scotland.

Worse still, she has left the taxpayer wide open on remediation costs running into millions with her fixation with Gupta.

It’s their fixation with children that is worrying,from asking about the sex lives of 14 year olds to teaching them stuff that is untrue.
Allowing 16 year olds to vote as they are ‘mature enough’ then upping the criminal age of responsibility to 21.
Allowing men that ‘identify as women’ into female prisons, allowing them to be classed as female if they commit a rape.
But it doesn’t matter, there’s union flags on eggs in a Scottish supermarket.

Yes the Guardian is left wing but the article is well-written and fair in its criticism. It's interesting that while most of its readership are leftie nutjobs, the Guardian itself has become much less leftie over the last 18 months. I think the reason for this is the Guardian wants donations and subscriptions from higher earners who just want good journalism. The rapid decline of the Telegraph and the paywall blocking access to the Times has created a market opportunity for the Guardian.
