Bookmakers odds on politicians hanging from lamp posts have shortened after this revelation.


Perhaps the presumtive (presumtious?)PM will do a handbrake turn on brexit after his confirmation? :twisted:

That would probably be enough to finally push me over the edge.

I think things will get a lot worse before there is a backlash.
Fuck up by 31 October.
General election.
10/1 Farage PM by this time next year?

Is anyone opening a book on the odds of certain politicians hanging by their heels from lamp posts 6 months after brexit?

Johnson and Gove seem to be obvious but they will blame "foreigners" or flee the country. Perhaps Cameron could stand/hang in for them? :wry:

Generally 'follow the money' is the answer to every political 'confusion'.

The tax is no doubt a big part of the current case, but the Tory Party has been a festering pit of civil war about the EU for 30 years.

Cameron miscalculated (probably) and the current direction of EU policy has pushed the leave faction ever onward.

Unfortunately the 1970s Revival Labour Group got control just in time to peddle the idea the EU is a right wing globalist conspiracy (which it may have been c 1966), but compared to being Trump's newest colony the EU looks positively Third International.

Just a reminder.
What kicked off this Bexit stupidity. :?

In addition to earlier answers - because if we complained too much about Russian influence in London the City would go Tango Uniform and we'd be even more in the financial shit than we are already, but this time it would affect real people (ie George Osborne and pals) as the Oligarchs moved their money to Frankfurt and/or Paris.

You guys are sooooo out-classed!

It’s the first instalment of an idiot offspring exchange program. One for one swapsies, Eduardo for Don Jr. it’s a fucking good move for the Bolsonaro clan, they know the US is loathe to extradite friendly individuals. Look at the Chilean death squad members they won’t touch.

The scary bit isn’t Eduardo, it’s the fact that they want Olavo de Carvalho to act as his official ‘advisor’. Still, I suppose Ron and Nancy had their own astral advisor and that worked out just fine. :D

Boris? Spider-Man?

Hmm. . .now what does that remind me of? Oh, yes:


If someone's matched the song with the video, I can't find it. Seems a natural.

This would work too:

Oh I'm sure our next PM will pick a first class ambassador, who will not only flip burgers, but deliver them to the White House and cut them up in bite size pieces for Trump.
Never let it be said our diplomatic service lacks the skill sets to cater for any narcissist, sorry POTUS.

An assessment of the man who would be PM (or Trump's mini-me.)
