  1. Bit of top trolling from Ed Milliband with his new Twitter handle.
  2. Yes, that's what being a realist gets you.
  3. Only in the way that you can successfully lose weight by chopping off an arm.
  4. Meanwhile all that Farage has to offer by way of solution to the complexity of the problems of brexit is "faith". Brexit is nothing more than a religion.
  5. What a great article. Nick Cohen is a very good political writer and has been equally critical of the current Labour party.
  6. Possibly, if it gets that far. May won without even a vote among Tory MPs don't forget. There is no mandate for a no deal crash out. During the referendum there was no mention of it from anyone; therefore it's deceitful to claim that no deal is what people voted for in 2016. Wouldn't it be a good idea to find out? All the opinion polls suggest opinion has changed and the trend is towards increasing support for remain as each month goes by.
  7. It wasn't even a complaint. However, Merseyrail are a private company and have every right to do as they see fit. They are only exercising their right to free speech surely, which the man himself would obviously approve of, right?
  8. I don't know whether we should laugh or cry...
  9. A longish thread about one of those issues that's not going to just evaporative just because the PM will be different. Worth noting that the author is from the rabidly pro brexit Telegraph.
  10. That's the problem with reality, it has the recurring habit of biting you on the bum.
  11. Any chance Corbyn can be persuaded to make it a full house of departing party leaders this summer?
  12. I wonder if May had announced that she was quitting a week or two ago whether it would have been enough to stave off the mass exodus of Tory votes to the brexit party yesterday? Another of her legacies, foisting Farage back on us?
  13. Do people not remember the look in Johnston's face the day after the referendum; the "oh my god, what have I done" look? I think he isn't that stupid and personally recognises how bad a no deal brexit would be and how it would reflect on the person heading the county who would let it happen. And it's also worth remembering he flip-flopped his position right up to the kick off of the referendum and had two articles written for publication in the Torygraph, one pro leave, one pro remain, only deciding the day before publication which way to go. The man hasn't a single principle in his body and can only be trusted to do what he thinks is best for him. Under the current circumstances I couldn't think of one good reason why any sensible person would want the job; it's the ultimate poison chalice. And that's what is so scary; all the sensible people will steer well away and the country gets lumbered with a walking talking ego or the absolute embodiment of the Dunning–Kruger effect (AKA the IDS effect). I think you may be right; he manoeuvred things so he had to stand down last time don't forget. I suppose it will all depend on whether his brain can overrule his ego. Again.
