HOW DARE YOU MAKE FUN OF OUR ANCIENT RITUALS
Friends close enemies closer? Or Brexiteer to explain to the moronic farmers who voted Brexit their subsidies are being taken away?
The hot gossip is that Rupert Murdoch insisted that Theresa hired Gove back in return for his support.
Tom Watson wrote a letter to her this morning asking her to clarify if this was true or not. https://www.theguardian.com/politic...y-did-murdoch-request-goves-return-to-cabinet
I mean, WHY ELSE would you ask that weaselly cunt back when she clearly can't stand the sight of him herself?!
Gove being brought back is bizarre and makes that Murdoch story all the more plausible.
When did ITV News At Ten stop being starchy? I never bother with it for that reason but the tone of tonight's show could almost be described as PERKY!
I found this interesting
Reality Check: Did Jeremy Corbyn have youth on his side? - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/election-2017-40265374
Particularly this bit
Among the other findings of the YouGov poll was that 49% of graduates voted Labour compared with 32% voting Conservative. In 2015 that figure was 34% Labour and 35% Conservative.
That compares with people with no academic qualifications above GCSE, who in 2017 split 33% for Labour and 55% for the Conservatives and in 2015 split 30% for Labour and 38% for the Conservatives.
Tim Farron has resigned.
A nation shrugs
What happened probably would have happened anyway, but he definitely felt like he was holding the party back with so much attention on his religious views.
Who's in the mix to take over?
He pretty much said just that in his resignation speech. It felt quite bitter.
Vinnie's a bit long in the tooth now, isn't he?
If the Tories actually managed to limp on for the next five years he'd be contesting the next election just shy of 80.
Jo Swinson seems like a good shout to me
It'll probably be Jo.
Norman Lamb should have won last time though.
Shame. Corbyn will be 73 mind.
I don't believe being a Lib Dem is a sin but I never really took to him, he was like an overly hip young vicar. Blaming Baby Jesus for resigning and not the underwhelming "fightback" is a bit of a cop-out.
Have you seen the full cast?
Now it ALL makes sense!
Suedehead dead in double penetration scandal
It's a sad reflection of the lack of bangable figures in British politics that the gays have been reduced to creaming themselves over a politician's son who looks like Elijah Wood... Elijah Wood isn't even fit in the first place.
Don't you like UNUSUAL looking blokes? I bet you've got a white only policy on grindr.
Not really my cup of tea but I'd go there. Anything to get even a faint taste of JEZ JIZZ
Elijah Wood is THE WHITEST.
No fats, femmes or hobbits
What is your TYPE?
To quote the influences section on Lana Del Rey's wikipedia page, I really like the masters of every genre.
Has QUEEN CORBZ been elected GOD yet?
@COB, I've just got an EMAIL FROM JEREMY!
Is he asking for more money?
Jo Swinson has ruled herself out of the lib dem leadership.
However this quote makes me quite glad:
She wrote: "Feminist that I am, I have of course wondered what a bloke in my position would do. It's obvious.
"Most blokes in my shoes would run for leader like a shot.
"It's true that my many years of encouraging women to have the confidence to go for that exciting new role have taught me that women often don't go for things when they should."
But she added: "Just because a man would do it, doesn't make it the right thing to do."
That's exactly the kind of bollocks which gives feminism a bad name. I wouldn't want to be a leader of a political party or even my department at work. Does that mean I'm not a 'bloke'?
That's just your UNCONSCIOUS BIAS Indiebobs. You need to empower some inspiring women to mentor others blah blah buzzword bollocks
It sounds like the DUP are getting ONE BILLION for Northern Ireland for this rather pitiful deal for the Tories (which has now been officially agreed).
A coalition of CHAOS indeed. Can't wait for it to all go TITS UP.
It's gonna be such a SHIT SHOW. It's not even a significant majority. It's a shame PMs are generally younger as a few death provoked by-elections could easily wipe out the Tory majority. You could almost assume it's cynical Tory policy after the 1992-1997 government was such fuck up and almost destroyed by a series of DEAD TORIES.
Always time for a dangerwank or two
Must nip down the greengrocers.
How is it even legal to do that, never mind 'ok' I'm baffled. She's paying for people's votes, why is that legal in our parliament? Can somebody explain.
