Not Lord Buckethead that's for sure.



Dang it!I remember seeing him for the first time when PM John Major was running.That was when I fell in love with British elections.


We had Lord Buckethead and a man dressed as Elmo.

Both better than Hillary verse Trump

I vote for TruBrit

It's rather fitting she has to team up with DUP to cling to power.


Gone will be the accusations that Corbyn is a " Friend Of The IRA "

I'd like to see the military step in and take control of the state. Remove all the crap and re-install Cameron and Osbourne to run the country and keep is in the EU. Back to normality.

Excuse me Brits whats the swing all about NHS,health care cuts,terror?


The Tories are selliing the NHS as they want a US style system (becuase the tories own millions in private healthcare), they're cutting care for the elderly, disabled, the young the poor and the choice of DUP will see a return to the regular bombing campaigns of PIRA and IRA who make ISIS look like hippys.

In precis everyone's #ed apart from a few rich people.

Get ready for another election around October time I reckon.

Can't see us going longer than that without May losing a confidence vote.

I'd be suprised if it lasted that long due to her terrible performance and how siding with DUP has made Brexit pretty much impossible on constitutional grounds - her own Party are calling for her head today as she failed on everything and suffered the biggest most embarrasing loss in uk policital history.

You forgot the man dressed as a fish finger.

Vermin Supreme ain't got nothing on Lord Buckethead and the Monster Raving Loonies.

....and the choice of DUP will see a return to the regular bombing campaigns of PIRA and IRA.....


Why?
I very much doubt it'll help solve the deadlock in Stormont and it could drive some back to republican terrorist groups but its nowhere near certain to happen.

Its imperative that all parties involved continue to support the peace process and actively strive to work together.
The one thing it may stall or even prevent is Sinn Fein's campaign for a referendum on whether Ulster wishes to remain part of the UK.

Personally I think its only just that they get their chance to express their Right to Self-Determination - lets get it over and done with for once and then work together to move forward whatever the outcome.



..... who make ISIS look like hippys.


Hardly.
They are undoubtedly murdering, cowardly scumbags but they never exported terrorism beyond UK mainland and their intention wasn't to convert anyone and everyone to Roman Catholicism.
They had no ultimate goal of worldwide domination and death to anyone who got in their way.

Scumbag, racketeering terrorist bastards yes, but not ISIS by any stretch.

Well, they did, actually. Germany and Gibraltar spring to mind, but in general you were right about them not being isis level terror exporters.

Er, no. She would have hardly screwed up the Tory election manifesto and made all the other mistakes deliberately in order to damage her reputation beyond repair. No point in doing so. She is far too unheroic and shallow a person to sacrfice her political career so as to sabotage the Brexit decision to leave the EU. That decision is irreversible. Any attempt by the Tories to reverse it would damage the Tory Party for years and years.

It would need to be brought against the government rather than the individual now, if they were trying to force an election. This is why she's having to sign a blood pact with the DUP.

For the Americans, that's the equivalent of Trump needing to sign a pact with the KKK in order to maintain power.

Yes, you're right - but they specifically targeted UK Armed Forces serving there.

I'm not trying to make excuses for them - I passionately despise them - but its important to be accurate.

And whilst I recognise that cozying up to DUP could be viewed as antagonistic by some republicans and may increase the threat of a resumption of IRA bombings etc its not however a forgone conclusion, not by a long shot and I think its slightly misleading to suggest so.

Lets see what happens, gauge reactions and then act accordingly.

I think he means that the IRA were better trained and organised than ISIS.

Just think how terrible it would be to have ISIS-levels of dedication to murder and disregard for their own lives, combined with western-style tactics, planning, and IQs higher than a soggy biscuit.

And yes, I'm using soggy biscuit in "that" sense

Because the Conservatives made huge cuts to the Police force and many feel that the recent attacks are a result of this.

This is the best result for me. I want Brexit and the U.K to continue until we come out of the post Brexit world.

Once we stabilise the economy post Brexit, then I would like to see a push towards Federalism.

I want Scotland to have more control over our economy because we are vastly different in politics to the likes of Southern England. But I also see the benefit of being part of a United Kingdom in terms of Military & Trade.

The SNP took a huge hit in Scotland to the Tories of all parties and I think that will put to bed the independence question for now.

The Tories have been taken down a notch which is good and Corbyn won't lead the country which I am thankful for.

I almost made a thread about how no party represents me and so overall this is a great result for me.

Happy days ahead.

One thing is undeniable - had it not been for two years of the media trying to rubbish Corbyn and half the members of his own party doing the same while trying to oust him, this would have been a clear win for Labour.

No, it wouldn't. You fail to understand the political problem the Labour Party still faces despite its latest election successes. Firstly, It lost so many Scottish seats in the last election that it simply cannot win enough Tory seats in order to get an overal working majority. Secondly, the problem with Corbyn remains despite his unexpected wins. In order to gain power, the Labour Party has to win dozens of more seats from the Tory Party. But Tory voters in safe Tory constituencies will never vote for a party lead by a leftwing Socialist. The Labour Party did win a few seats from the Tories, but not enough to allow them victory. The problem is that it has likely won all it will ever will. Unless the leader of the Labour Party is replaced by a Blair-like politician who can appeal to middle class and lower middle class, hard-core Tory voters, there can never be sufficient switch from Tory to Labour to give Labour victory. Like it or not, the party is condemned to spend many more years in opposition because it can never win over enough of these crucial voters whilst Corbyn leads the party. It is just a matter of political demographics. I suspect that Corbyn is not worried about Labour not ever winning power. He has been far more concerned with restoring his party to the true, leftwing Socialist party that it started life as. He will NEVER turn it into Blair Mark 2 merely to get into power. So the Labour Party will remain in opposition.
