    What could have been if we had let the pandemic rip. Collapse the NHS and re-build it like a civilised country. No queues in Tesco on a Saturday morning. Housing surplus. Trickle-down inheritance. But no. Fucking Paddington Bearland had to be pathetic.

    I'd make fun of Lewis, but I'm not 100% sure he isn't going to be our Idi Amin in 5 years or so.

    Well it's a rare condition and a novel, complex treatment.

    The drug company will have spent X (large) amount of money on research and development in order to come up with the treatment. That then has to be recouped (and a profit made, obviously). Being a rare condition, there will be relatively few times the treatment will be required, therefore the price of each needs to be high.

    The actual cost price of the treatment will be relatively high because it's far more involved than churning out billions of paracetamol, but the above is where the majority of the cost will come from.

    When does the Faustian pact with Nigel get proposed? Or who even does the proposing? Stand down in a few select seats, couple of promissory Lordships here and there, some seats on a future cabinet . . .

    The longer this rumbles on the less I want to vote for any of them. Shower of patronising, disingenuous bastards. None of them, save for maybe Nigel Farage and the fucking Green Party, believe a word they are saying.

    I have to say this is very much increasingly becoming my take. I was nailed on to vote for Labour before the election was announced but their campaign has been so toilet to date I may actually spoil my balot now.

    Working at a printers during this season is interesting. I've just printed 50,000 JK Rowling inspired transpeople are trying to make us call breasts chesticles flyers and now moving onto a 'Was Enoch Powell right?' set.

    Love to know whose job it is at a bookmaker to sift through all winning bets and see if they can get the winners arrested.

    Probably everyone's.

    Is it at all feasible that the Conservatives get wiped out to such an extent that, rather than trying to cooperate with Reform, they go one step further and try and get Nige in as leader?

    I don't think so. Farage is a proven loser at elections for one, and although they're getting what's coming to them this time around I would think the core Conservative party members would rather get back to their roots rather than have a tubthumper with no clue how actual government works in charge.

    Nige would shy away from it anyway, he is a TV personality, not an actual politician. Doesn't want responsibility. As soon as this election is over he'll be in the US.

    I could see him playing second fiddle in a Boris reboot, which is an absolutely disgusting prospect.

    Probably.

    Seems they've maybe sifted another.

    This was such a great documentary about someone who beat the bastards.

    Farage's "The West caused the Ukraine war" line getting a lot of airtime in the media. Surely this will tank Reform? Whatever he thinks personally, it's a tiny minority opinion in the UK.

    The absolute inability/unwillingness of people to consider that perspective goes a long way to explaining why he's right.

    That’s true, but everyone still overreacts to sound bites that go against the grain. The polls in the coming days might be telling.

    It's because no one has any respect for Russia (due to them being fucking useless for the duration of everyone's lifetimes) and so think we are within our rights to do what we want and that they are not an important rival civilsation. If it was China or something then you'd have more luck.

    The same spastics who thought Afghanistan could be turned into a functioning democracy, Iraq would be a walkover, Libya would be fine without its government, and that the 'moderate opposition' in Syria were legitimate. Aren't we lucky to have people who think like that escalating conflict with a nuclear superpower on our behalf.

    I don't know why people keep going on about this - the war ended over two years ago, just as everyone said it would, with a swift victory for our Ukranian brothers and sisters supported by the seekers of truth and justice from the democratic World.

    Can we move on now please?

    With all this betting furore someone should ask the betting companies how many Politically Exposed People have placed losing bets on the date of the election and whether these are being urgently voided as well.

    Please explain like I’m 5 what I’m voting for on 4th July. I thought I was voting for the prime minister but apparently I can only vote for local MPs standing in my constituency, and therefore can only vote for Labour, Conservative, Lib Dem, Reform, Green, or Independent. So can’t vote for Animal Welfare or Women’s Equality?

    Gonna have to be Lib Dem cos the local Labour woman (Marie Rimmer) is a corrupt scumbag, who also refused to vote for a ceasefire when she had the chance.

    What's your constituency? Yeah, you can only vote for candidates standing in your area, so if there's no affiliate link garden football workplace affair candidate standing then you can't vote for them.

    Never heard of Brian Spencer and he’s not bothered to litter my letterbox with propaganda so he seems sound. Yellows, it is.

    Not sure about the independent's picture, and he's also another bald.

    This whole story is so mental. That's a whole year of VAT on private school fees. Just such a litany of disaster that stemmed from not just letting a bunch of people die, most of whom probably died anyway. Not even particularly corrupt, just incompetence on an unimaginable scale.

    The mongs criticising the government for over-ordering protective equipment, and the costs of storing it, are the same people who spent the opening phase of the pandemic calling them incompetent for not having had an emergency stockpile ready to go.

    They should've had the right amount of PPE at the right time at the lowest price.

    I still lol at the Americans buying PPE out of the French hands in the airport.
