    The man is sub-intelligent, and the anti-Semitism stuff is the most obvious example of it. He doesn't personally dislike Jews, and he doesn't set out to ignore it, but he is too thick to understand anti-Semitism beyond his thicko notions of it being the sole preserve of his political opponents.

    Nope. No socialist is ever going to get a fair hearing with the establishment. If they do, then that's how they know that they're doing it wrong.
    As exhibit A, the right-wing press has made Boris's implosion somehow about Corbyn over the past few days.

    Speaking of which, the clown has narrowing options, and may be reduced to choosing from the following:

    Doing a complete u-turn and asking for an extension to Article 50.
    Breaking the law, and kicking off the mother of all constitutional crises (the civil service are disallowed from assisting him in criminal activity)
    Fucking off.

    I don’t know Corbyn the way Brits know him, but to me he just seems like a man who decided early in his career he’d rather be a crusader for whatever he believes than a policy wonk. He would probably make a better activist than politician. At the same time, it has always been the “sole refuge” of reactionaries and conservatives to denounce anybody with an idealistic agenda as stupid. Corbyn pal-palled with Hugo Chavez and has an erection for Palestine, but on the other hand the Tories want a no-deal Brexit, so who really are the idealists here?

    He's not very good because despite the Tories totally fucking up over the last 3 and a half years he still won't get an outright majority at an election.

    That's the beginning and end of it really.

    I bet most of what currently comprises the establishment, which is more cultural than financial these days, would take him over Brexit. And even then the financial twats are ambivalent. He's just a colossal mong.

    This is it. Whatever else you think about him he's been in opposition to two of the most inept and divided governments in living memory and has fuck all to show for it.

    I mean technically he did and then the gap just went back to what it was previously so ther'es technically nothing to say you wouldn't see a similar shrinking of the numbers on another election. The problem being that the way he's set his stall out means he'll automatically lose a bunch to the Lib Dems which puts him back where he is right now. Because as we all know the Lib Dems would rather see the Tory's win over Labour so i't snot like they could make a coalition.

    He's literally failing to take a bull by the horns.



    All these people moaning about how Cummings isn't a Conservative, is this all a long game to make Boris look a complete mug? Because I'm not sure yesterdays plan of going to Leeds and being told he's a knob by people with regional accents worked too well either.

    The one thing the right has always had going for it is that it’s way better at humor than the left. Their policies may be antisocial but they’re quality trolls who know how to entertain

    And while the likes of Henry are harping on about him being unfairly treated, they're completely ignoring the fact that he's just a bit shit.

    That Conservatives tweet is pathetic.

    Someone please explain to me how any other Labour leader would win this stonking majority you all imagine when the core Labour vote itself (not to mention the country being split almost 50/50) is very divided on Brexit.

    Didn't say a stonking majority, just not that he'd get one at all. And in fact, I think he'd still lose. Which given how shit the Tories have been is piss poor.

    The only general election he's been leader for was 2017. The Tories weren't considered anywhere near as ridiculous then (that's probably the start of the current banter era) and he ncreased Labour's vote-share then by almost 10%.

    Also, have a look at what happens to the polling results for 2017 when the election campaign media impartiality rules kick in.

    Many times I wonder how much party politics has broken democracy. The moment you take these people out of the structure of having to defend 'their side' you get so much more honesty.

    Soames on Rees-Mogg



    With Brexit cutting it's way through both major parties, now is a good a time as ever to dissolve all the parties and start again.

    And I suspect when the papers are released on Proroguing and No Deal Boris is done.

    And also, on this shitty extension law, I would lol my fucking arse off if the EU told us to fuck off. Neither Corbyn or Blackford had a response on what happens then.

    The Scot Nats are the worst people going. At least the crap Corbyn worldview is internally consistent. If they ever get independence they will embark on a Mobutu-esque 'de-anglicising' programme and sell all the crown estates to build luxury crofts. Then they'll get voted out for Labour (or whatever replaces it) when the peepallascotland realise they are nothing more than a bunch of grandstanding charlatans.

    They won't release those papers.

    If they (the EU) have a brain cell amongst them they'll either:

    A) say no to an extension, forcing the UK to either take May's deal or leave without one.

    Or

    B) Give us an open ended extension, safe in the knowledge that we will then stay stuck in purgatory forever.

    A vote in parliament on May's deal or no deal would actually be quite interesting and deliciously ironic in that the remain option (that MP's are so desperate to have on the ballot of a second referendum) wouldn't be anywhere near it.

    EDIT: Although Swinson reckons we could just revoke article 50 instead, so I suppose it would be.

    I have a lot more time for the people who just want to pretend it never happened, provided they're not also thick enough to think everything would just go back to normal like Andrew Adonis. It's everyone in between who is a dickhead. Speaking of which, Theresa May's resignation honours list is apparently an absolute belter.

    As for the Scotch, would they leave the United Kingdom without a 'deal'? If not we could just insist on all sorts of lol measures in our favour.

    Hard Scoxit. I'm not sure the shortages of fresh fruit and vegetables would be noticed, but the fifty mile queues on the A74 while all the fudge lorries get inspected at the border might be.

    What? This is the start of the EU caving on the matter and we're the ones inevitably getting thrown under the bus.

Was inevitable anyway, anyone who thought the EU weren't going to suit their big players was delusional.
