  • Re: politicalbetting.com » Blog Archive » Why TMay must stay – for now

    Franlky, May has to go and soon.. three months max.. The Tories have fecked themselves good and proper. I cannot see how they can win the next election. The prospect of Corbyn frightens the life out of a lot of people inc me..
    She should have announced she was going yesterday. The government can't just carry on as if nothing happened.
    Yep. How can such a weakened PM negotiate in our interests?
    That's why there needs to be a leadership contest.
    'Not another one!'

    No more leadership contests. Just abandon Brexit and then the government can roll along quite comfortably with a non majority government as many countries do. Brexit is the problem not Theresa May's lack of a majority.
    But we're told this would result in an insurrection by the honest yeomans of Olde England, with a metropolitan elitist dangling from every lampost.

    Perhaps the Tories can take advice from their new allies on how to keep a lid on their headbangers & psychos (get them elected and stuff their mouths with gold it would appear).
    Is that what they're planning? I heard they were going to hang homosexuals from cranes.

    That should earn us a few trade deals with the Saudis.

    Specifically, Britain's nuclear programme is a nonsense in my view. The military have mixed views on it as well. But it's totemic. The public think it should be there, even if it's not clear why in a practical sense. Corbyn has impressed me during this campaign in the degree to which he has made himself into a normal politician and been willing to make the necessary compromises. Nuclear weapons appear to be the step too far.

    Oddly enough the biggest compromise and the most effective one was changing to a blue suit from the shabby vanilla one he usually wears. I know this sounds like superficial crap but having had to sit around a table with execs from P&G many times discussing what colour tie a model should be wearing I can vouch for the fact it's not trivial.*

    *(In real life of course it is trivial but in the whacky world of advertising/marketing it really isn't)
    It's a fair point that we expect out politicians to look like leaders though. It took a year or so for Corbyn's handlers to finally drag him to a tailor and get him to look the part.

    The geography teacher look with the occasional ill-fitting suit might go down well at a Stop the War rally, but not at the G7 summit he'd like us to think he might attend.
    The strange thing is that companies like P&G have researched these things to death and depressingly they make a significant difference. The day we'll know these superficial bits of flim flam stop making a difference is the day we elect a PM with a Birmingham accent
  • Re: politicalbetting.com » Blog Archive » What if this latest from YouGov proves to be correct?

    Interesting that Rachel Johnson has joined the Lib Dems because she thinks Brexit is one of the biggest mistakes this country has ever made.

    At least one member of the Johnson family isn't an opportunist c*** prepared to wreck the country for personal ambition.

    Kippers in kilts update.

    Some nascent signs that the media worm is turning with regard to Ruthy.



    Of course it's no revelation that the SCons are happy to soak up the racist bigot vote, but they've become too complacent about doing it openly. Douce Unionist folk don't want to open their breakfast newspaper to news of councillors' manhoods or loonballs calling for politicians to be taken out.
    I think the people of the North East will be with dissident Skipper Buchan. Is it now illegal to criticize the partitionist occupation ?
    Retired skipper.
    Now he just spends his days posting on FB about the gays, dem Muslamics and asking people to take out Sturgeon.
    So a real Glaswegian
