Misleading the Queen is untenable. Even some of the happy clappers that read the Daily Mail will be alarmed at that.

He’s fucked.

I'll reserve judgement to see what happens when it goes before the UK Supreme Court next week. This could end up not only with Parliament in turmoil but also the UK wide judiciary if they go against the Scottish decision.

Whatever happens, the Party Conferences are about to swing into action and so nothing will happen in the interim. I've never understood why these conferences have to take place in Parliamentary time. Surely to god they could take place in the summer recess...…...MP's get quite enough holiday allocation as it is.

The first hour and a half of the resumed Parliament has proved what most of us have long suspected.

Our political system is failing because of the appalling quality of its inhabitants. The lawyer proportion of our MP's is a disproportionate ratio of the population and as usual, the lawyers self-interests are more important to them than the public interest.

The Attorney General is a prick, fat-headed and of disgusting nature, an archetypal nature fashioned and honed by the educational institutions that separate them from us and which entrenches the political elite. Their senses of superiority and entitlement are shockingly apparent and patently paradoxical against the actual roles of public servants.

Geoffrey Cox is right on two things however; this parliament is "dead" (as he pronounces) and leaving the EU is what we must do.

At last, some decency and purpose in the House of Commons today, rather than the bollocks hitherto. Thanks to Layla Moran bringing up the grant given to Jennifer Arcuri, facilitated by Boris. Yet another example of the corrupt nature of the public schoolboys who run England and hopefully an example that will nail this particular charlatan.

Let's face it, Boris is a fat bumbling bastard and Arcuri is an ugly old cunt of gold-digging nature with big tits. The suggestion that £100k of public funds were misappropriated in order that he could get his leg over is as tragic as it is comic, pathos being the foremost sentiment.

I can see what BoJo is trying to do with this people vs parliament/establishment thing.  I think a significant proportion (presumably leave voters) will buy into it and it will be backed by the Daily Mail and the Sun etc..., but Corbyn (for all his faults) was correct to say the establisment is actually the Tory front bench and many many people realise this, so I think the people vs establishment could backfire (if there is an election soon and BoJo is still PM).

I agree Corbyn is hopeless.  I think Labour would be miles ahead in the polls if somebody like Starmer was leader.  That said I don't think the polls are going to matter a huge amount at the next election as there is going to be a massive push for tactical voting and I think the Tories will be in trouble - and particularly I wouldn't be surprised if BoJo himself loses his seat.  I expect the SNP and Lib Dems (in England) to pick up a lot of seats.  Quite where Farage fits in I am not sure, surely the Tories will need to do a deal or they will be truly fucked if they have not delivered Brexit (which they won't have) by the election.

Read the other day that John McDonnell thinks Labour's next leader should be female and that they have lots of talented females well capable of doing it. Fuck that. Emily Thornberry I wouldn't trust to make a cheese and pickle sandwich without causing food poisoning. Diane Abbot? Barely knows what day of the week it is. Rebecca Long-Bailey....professional coat tail hanger on. Shami Chakrabarti...........tainted by political correctness and an ocean-going sense of self entitlement. As for Dawn Butler......words fail me.

The 2 women who really do impress me in the party are Chi Onwura and Lisa Nandy, both backbenchers but with the correct mix of education, personality and most of all realism to do the job effectively. Sadly neither will even be quoted as a contender. Corbyn will suffer a humiliating defeat in the forthcoming election, he will certainly finish second in number of seats as usual but I suspect the Lib Dems will actually gain a bigger total vote (doing their claims to adopt proportional representation no harm).  Of all the Shadow Cabinet, Starmer seems the only one with the credentials to take over the hot-seat once Corbyn stands down as he surely will.

I think when Labour lose the next election the party will switch back to the right and some Blair follower will take over the hotseat, I suspect Watson may well make a pitch for it.

I don't see any upcoming politicians from any party that are worth a fuck, all I see are nodding dogs in suits/dresses who stick to the party line.

 Rebecca Long-Bailey.


The name make a shiver of revulsion run down my back.

Dianne Abbot, always unpleasant to look at, no longer looks alive.
I wonder how she voted on the public school abolition, give that she sent her own son to one?

Labour party may be fucked for good.

We've got a labour coalition government here, which was needed after 9 years of National (conservatives) neglect and corruption. The latter party are now appearing to base themselved on trumpies and the tory cunts. God help us, election is still a year away and the amount of misinformation they churn out is disgusting. People are stupid and will believe it.

I see the tories won a council seat in Aberdeen yesterday which I found a bit worrying.

Years ago you may have said that people vote for the person at a local level and not the party, but I don't believe this to be the case anymore. I reckon people who still want to vote tory after recent events really need their heads looking at.

You just know when an election is called they are still going to be the biggest party. I only hope the next time we get the chance to split from the UK we grab it with both hands and don't bottle it like 2014, but sadly I still think the majority will still believe the lies.

Brilliant speech by Sturgeon in Aberdeen right now.

Scotland MUST be independent.

Shame on the North East for voting against it AND returning a record number of Tories.

The difference between us and them is planetary.

People representing an MP or MSP chapped my door today. I didn't catch the name but I asked what party. She said Conservative. I wasn't rude, she'd already said they weren't "campaigning" (so what the fuck were they doing) but I hope that my "no sorry, I'm violently opposed to anything Tory" before I shut the door took away a bit of her sunshine from this glorious NE day.

Nice one Rocket. I've yet to have the pleasure of any cunt political turning up at my door whilst I'm in. Plenty pikeys offering lock block paving though.  :hammer:

Missed opportunity imo, I ever get a Yoon party coming to my door they will be getting invited in whilst I pose as a floating voter.  Waste as much of the cunts time as you can because it could stop them influencing someone else.

Have you taken into account the toll on your personal well-being that listening to their bullshit and lies will have?

Fair point, well presented, but if you play the floating voter well enough you can question said bulshit in a way that doesn't give you away but winds them up.
