Would you consider Labour if Nandy did win, Cipp?

Where I live it’s a solid Conservative area so with First psst the post my vote makes no difference. For now i support Boris, wait and see as the budget will surprise a lot of people. But I believe Nandy is a much better candidate than Starmer who I think may just beat RLB. I don’t think Nandy will win but I can see she understands people a lot more than the others. Starmer is tainted by beating so much anti Brexit so would not do well in the north, but better than Corbyn. RLB is actually worse than Corbyn so would ruin the Labour Party. I think Starmer will win though.

This is a god analysis actually, showing Boris to be a lot different to how many people on the left think of him

Joke article. Author clearly doesn't understand Brexit. It's binary, Johnson can't be close to Europe and the US at the same time, they're competing blocs. He's done nothing for the poor of this country, nothing on benefits, food banks, homelessness, drug rehab, and guess what, there's nothing to come either. All the lord's amendments to the Brexit bill have been rejected, child refugees lost protections and damage was done to the separation of the courts and government.

All the author has done is throw doubt on what BoJo thinks at night when he puts on his jimjams. Maybe he does lie there and think, "Was I a proper twazzock to back this Brexit stuff?", i don't give a fuck to be honest, he did back it and he's set a train of events in motion which are now unstoppable. Why are there so many articles trying to humanise a guy who has dehumanised so many? Fuck him, seriously. There's frost tonight, how about you motherfuckers on the right devote 5 minutes to thinking what it's like to be a rough sleeper out in that.

Wake the fuck up.

All the amendments are right to be rejected and not to do with Brexit. They will be put on separate bills if needed

Do a deal with obvious negative consequences. Deny, lie, call others liars and fear-mongers when they point out these consequences - then when you win the election, do a backflip and call it inevitable after the fact. And for the kicker claim the election gives you a mandate to do the very thing you claimed would not be necessary.

"The only way in which you could avoid those customs procedures and regulatory checks would be if you were to align with EU law and if you were to align with EU law we would be undermining the basis on which the prime minister secured the mandate at the general election to affirm our departure,”

What does that mean? How do you sell a product to Europe that doesn't comply with European standards. I'm dying to know the answer oh great mage of this debate.

Rishi Sunak replaces Javid as chancellor because Johnson and Cummings needed to find someone with even less spine.

Every time I've seen Sunak interviewed it's been clear he is a worthless ass-kisser, happy to parrot any Johnson lie to stay in favour. Way out of his depth but that seems to be a required qualification for cabinet now.

This is bang on. Also you're the first person I've noticed routinely acknowledging that Cummings is basically in charge, though Boris like Harkonnen could pull the plug at any time, just like Trump/Bannon. All hail this wondrous period of "democracy".

:D I'm actually reading Dune at the minute!

And yes true, Cummings has power now but will find himself under a bus if it suits Johnson sometime down the line.
