Quite a few females I've spoken to when this has cropped up more or less all said what does that bloody woman think she's up to? Certainly not popular.

What's the betting comrade Corbyn will still blame the US for that plane crash despite the fact the Iranians have admitted shooting it down.

There's more than one cut of gammon. I'm a bit bemused as to why anyone gives an actual feck, but the Daily Gammon News is saying they should, so off they trot like good little broadcast piggies like it's something important.p

Yeah get her dumped, dust off the nazi fancy dress uniform and go back to jumping around in fountains with his todge tucked between his legs!
If she's considering her career options, I think she's probably fit enough to consider becoming a television football pundit. :)

Nice to see a socialist so profligate with taxpayers money, think that's what riles people up.

So pleased to see the good old peddler of crackpot ideas, the Guardian, is now pushing the race card apparently, after rounding up some major crackpots, it's her colour what dun it!

So MSN and everyone's uncle and auntie are running the story yet it's the Mail and ham? Oh dear I had high hopes for you worthy in the new ministry you seem to be slipping :wink:

Ah good back on message then :D

Actually it is worth giving a feck about, security for these two jokers cost £1 million last year and will rise considerably if they spend large amounts of the year in North America and cashing in on HRH just ain't on neither of them has earned that right.

Wonderful. Ask them for it back. And the main problem with universal credit is what?

Whether this is true or not, I'm unsure. However, I did hear that Ginge and his Mrs are trying to trademark 'The Duke and Duchess of Sussex'. Are they allowed to do that?

Still sulking the Marxist mob didn't get in and wipe out any student debt with one of their false promises?

Too many people who don't want to work and have multiple kids they could never afford might be a starting point.
Oh and before you go off on one I have no problem with top ups to help those who struggle with low pay, but that's another issue.

My fondness for the outgoing Labour leadership is well documented.

I'm just making sure we all remember what we've been promised including £350m extra a week for the NHS (though it's not clear if that's "extra" in the way these nurses are extra).

I'm the scheme of things £1m a week is feck all and the are far more important things to get worked up by. Weirdos getting worked up by it

The hilarious bit though;
However, because of Johnson’s big majority, the results are expected to be overturned by the Commons.

An irrelevant comment slot not asking for answers that mostly can't be given anyway. Most likely just a bit of a rant...

As very much a one-off, and mainly because I hadn't switched over or turned the T.V off, I caught Boris in action at the Westminster coconut shy today, and re-affirmed why politics just makes me shake my head in bewilderment. It was like a W.W.F fight night without the wrestling but with all the rest of the lunacy.

Credit to Boris, he mainly handled what came across from a bunch of angry pinch-faced so-called politicians who's sole intent was to ask as many irrelevant unanswerable questions as possible without any two of them being in agreement, before they all dashed off for lunch, with the Sturgeon Highland Fling Scots Dance team well to the fore in blaming everything south of the border for everything north of it. What a fiasco

Just the fact that the P.M was even aware of the myriad babble of non-related issues is to his credit. If just for once they all calmed down and made an agenda priority list to be debated sensibly one issue at a time instead of coming across as a Madame DeFarge guillotine mob where everybody wants to win some point or other on everything that's wrong with the U.K, but no sensible remote suggestion as to solutions, we might actually see some progress as to why the country is in the mess it is . These people get paid to howl abuse at their oppositions with all the lack of manners and respect of a lynch mob then sit down with satisfied smirks as if they actually were worth the title of Member of Parliament. The U'K is a big entity and getting bigger yearly. Everybody has a plan (with development companies always well to the fore, planning sites that soon nobody but the very rich will be able to afford. Bolton a shining example making great plans for a town centre that has already lost a couple of dozen major businesses due mainly to rising rental costs and most locals preferring to shop in Bury) whilst thousands are late for work daily due to trains cancelled, late or simply that don't turn up at all.(I spent 17 years travelling daily to Manchester and retired ten years ago, and what exactly has improved? ) The bus situation is even worse, and blaming the N.H.S for the current failings should get kicked right back to the organisers not the workers.

Well, that's about it I think. Will Bexit provide some solutions? I sure hope so, because right now Britain isn't too "great" at all. Rule Brittania and all that.... :oyea:
The wisest and the best of men, nay, the wisest and best of their actions, may be rendered ridiculous by a person whose first object in life is a joke...Darcy. Pride and Prejudice.
