Come on now, Cameron couldn't be the Bilderberger to take the U.K out of his Masters domain. I had a suspicion he would resign, but we need to start talking ourselves up, fast.

Ah drat and befuddle, just when politic's was finally getting entertaining, I was looking forward to a Boris VS Jeremy face off and had plan's to get the popcorn in for the occasional bout between them.

Now they are going to get a more Ruthless and typical Tory leader (not saying that Boris was not ruthless but like most other's I found the guy likable and though a die hard labor supporter I feel the shine is wearing off Corbyn so he is not the guy to run the country - but Angela Eagle I mean please can they not do better even bring back milliband but never that Blair the criminal scuzz bucket).

Ah back to boring old politics and a general public whom easily grow disinterested just as they want us to be, dumb and easily controlled so the Status Quo stay in charge (not the pop group they at least are more honest and made some half decent music).

Really it's Cameron that took the dump as he clearly had no discernible strategy for how to leave the EU and is happy to plod it out for 8 weeks until he can wash his hands of it all. Can't really blame Boris for not wanting to step in it so it looks like it's either May, Crabb or Gove; all self serving snivelling and utterly incompetent little cretins that totally ballsed up the lesser positions theyve occupied and want the spot solely because of the power that comes with it.

Politics in this country disgusts me, I'd be far happier seeing Whitehall burned to the ground.

That's about right, they went into it with eyes wide shut, while nobody in either camp had a BREXIT strategy.
As for Boris, he had no taste to be PM ever, he was always going to do a runner.

So, that's where we are now, a parliament full of headless chickens pecking each other, and making it up as they go along.
Britain is going nowhere until it 'regains' the single market status, and it won't have that unless Britain accepts freedom of movement if it wants access, unfortunately the first and foremost thing Cameron said in Brussels on Tuesday was that the UK brexit decision was because of immigration concerns...smart guy eh! fecked up at the first hurdle.

I don't agree that Corbyn is losing his shine, after all, most of his colleagues never voted for him anyway and what we are seeing is a coup led by the Blairites in order to save Blair from the damning Chilcott report that will be released next Wednesday.

The amount of support at grass roots level is amazing and people are beginning to engage with politics. Who needs a shiny self serving statesman? Politics is changing in this country, we have to get used to it.

She said that there will be no going back, but without article 50 being invoked and with comments like Carney is making, who really knows?


That's also correct, in fact she said there is no going back on Brexit. But, that's a bit cheeky, controversial even, since she isn't in charge. And she has got things quite badly wrong in the past on prisons, and the mass migrant student expulsions...(it seems there were thousands of them) with the possibility of them being allowed to return, and moreover, their ability to claim compensation. She's too quick to act, when there was time to do so. Not a particularly good sign for a leader.
As for BREXIT, let's all be clear..as yet it has no legal status

That will only come through a house of commons vote, (strangely enough, that's parliament acting out it's Sovereign status that many are worried about re the EU) Alternatively, the government could just ignore it, which ever way, Ms May has cocked up once again in being presumptuous...at least Maggie was in power before she said things like that


Along with that, it is likely that most of the 650 UK parliamentary MPs lean towards the EU, so what are they going to do in a house of commons vote, make BREXIT legal?...go get a sick note...do a runner like Boris?

To top it all, there is no mention of a house of common vote, just as there is no mention of invoking article 50
on, what there is though, is in-party wrangling about leaders...of both parties, in other words nobody needs to do nuttin' while all this is going on it's called playing for time, on all sides until someone bites the bullet, or until the only one left to do so will probably be God Almighty himself...with the help of Boris of course.

So, Boris Johnson lead a successful campaign for the U.K to leave the entity that is the E.U, but he's decided now is not the time to stand for leader of the Tories and become Prime Minister.



Andrea Leadsome who was one of the women that stood on the podium

debating with Boris Johnson for Brexit.

IMO she was dignified, and eloquent and put up a very good case for Brexit.


On the other hand Theresa May was very quiet during the whole

lead up to the referendum, so quiet that I don't even think she was in the

*leave* side.

Which IMO makes her not in a fit position to make the negotitians for us

to leave the EU.

I'm not jeering him, but I can see why some have.

As for Corbyn, he is biding his time for the Chilcott report to be published and if it is as damning of Blair and Straw as they say it is, he will call for Blair to be brought to justice.

The coup against Corbyn has been a long time coming, so it is not surprising. I admire Corbyn for his stance against the PLP, personally I would like to see all the Blairites sacked, their time has come and gone.




I had a cuppa at a friends home last night as we watched the news Corbyn,s speech he gave was aired WTF ? .

He appeared unshaved ,scruffy ,no tie and his pockets full of paper and best of all behind him one could not find a more scruffy scene to film if you tried with the doors in question needing lots of tlc .

Some idiot for want of a better word stoned out of his noggin < i know these things > is walking behind him oblivious to the fact cameras and crew are pointed at him , then he walks back playes with the doors then stands fidgiting like a 5 year old what the hell did foreign people viewing that think

He's a politician for the people, unlike all the other self serving vermin.

He looks like a person that should be right up your street. Who cares what foreigners think??

Western politics took a 180% turn to throw us plebs off their trail .Keep your eye on the pea for the next while .Never mind getting into the fact that Johnson was in the sweet spot politically because he was so he was or is a kind of something to throw under the bus to distract us into looking elsewhere ....

I did laugh out loud at that.

It's 'in the thick of it' being played out in real life.

The same is happening with the Tories, but they don't have crowds turning up to their events, so no cameras capture it.

She didn't do anything public, (or very little until latterly) to back the 'remain' camp simple as that, that made Cameron furious. He should have sacked her from the cabinet at least, but I guess that would have shown that his cabinet was a bit creaky.
May is a bit too closet Xenophobic for my liking, chooses her words to suit like,

"But when we look at the question of membership I understand people have concerns over immigration, but this is about our economy, our security it's about our future place in the world and I think it's important that people look at all these issues."
Later in that interview, she confirms she is in the 'remain' camp.

Source BBC, www.bbc.co.uk...
Thing is, the European convention on human rights is a backbone of the EU, and in turn the UN...always was, she wasn't going to change that anytime soon, and we must not forget that all the other member states are signed up to that too.
Never mind that, there is the appalling lack of comfort from government for long time immigrants living here with no hard advice being given from government at this time, since government is too busy looking after themselves at this time.

Sorry about the late reply, you know what you have a point and it is one that I actually believe myself.
Corbyn represents traditional and REAL labour where the blairites represent a group of College tory's kid's that hijacked the Labour party for there own agenda (as they would never have gained position in the Tory party and they were slightly left of the Tory model but were still thatcherite's and out of touch completely with the majority of the Labour electorate and definitely there core votor's).

In fact if Corbyn had been leader I feel that Labour would not have lost out to the SNP in scotland by any where near as much as it has.

You can argue he is fighting a reverse coup to reclaim the Party from the right wing wolves in sheep's clothing that took it over with there leader Blair - the ponce.

Still he has a terrible battle and in it's current state the Labour party does not stand a chance of winning the election BUT not because of Corbyn and actually because of the NEW Labour member's that are trying to oust him, I would personally still vote for him myself but was being a realist in the face of the civil war that is now tearing the labour party apart from within.
