Probably the bigger issue was / is that Tories don't have the first clue how to compromise.

Which was basically ignoring the solution.

Apparently, loads of party members were sent multiple leadership ballots, but the party don't intend to do anything about it because they "trust that their members know the rules and will only vote once"


So that's alright then, 'cos you can always trust a Tory.

A few extra ballots isn't going to make much of a difference, as they're going to install that chinless inbred by a large margin.

The beauty of this post is that you can pretend you were right whoever wins.

Pro-roguing? We've been doing that since Helm was inserted!

Go back where you came from.

I don't think there's anything wrong with that because a lot of people agree with me.



Disgusting.

It's unbelievable, isn't it?  A few years ago we would have been all over this thread in shock and dismay.  These days we're just shaking our heads sadly.  The water's getting pretty warm but we're staying put; there's nowhere to hop to.

He really is an utter cockwomble.

The people who rush to defend him deserve hounding to their dying day.

Daily politicians say and do things that even 20 years ago would have meant a press hounding and a swift resignation. But then I wonder, have the middle-aged always thought exactly this about the politicians of the day?  I can almost hear the Baz Luhrmann lyrics...

And then Trump says "spics out!", or words to that exact effect,  and people DEFEND him,  and I'm pretty sure it's worse than any nostalgic idealism could possibly invent.

I wouldn't have thought that talking about "spaffing" in relationship to child abuse would have allowed one to continue working, yet it seems to be a qualification to become prime minister these days.

"Oooh Sheridan, you're so PC! You can't say anything nowadays". According victims of abuse basic human dignity is not "so PC".

Johnson isn't qualified to run a tombola. If he showed up and volunteered to clean the toilets (no chance) at a community event, I'd run him before he could get us sued.
