I don't think I have ever seen such a demonstration of hypocrisy as the standing ovation by the Labour benches for their "leader" Jeremy Corbyn. Before the election they were all distancing themselves from him; now he is seen as some kind of hero!


Let me see; hypocrisy , politicians, labour. No, I see no connection there.

Corbyn claiming victory after a clear defeat will help whoever leads the Tories into the 2018 election. People do not like smug bustards or people who take them for granted. Corbyn is doing just that and it will not go down well.

His policies were a one time winner, and he will not get the same mileage going forward. Tories will be able to trample over his poor maths and money tree economics so he loses credibility.

Meanwhile the three witches of Foreign, Home and Education will show him up as a poor leader.

Heart warming to see the Blairites change horses with such speed and hypocrisy.

I expect some of you old timers will remember when Neil Kinnock began celebrating even before a vote had been cast. Served the ginger whinger right when he lost the election. :P

I see Feckless Farron has thrown in the towel.

Tim Farron resigns: Liberal Democrat leader quits after finding it 'impossible' to be a committed Christian and political leader

His timing says it all.

So we are in a place where the Conservatives didn't do as well as they expected, and Labour did not do as badly as they expected, and we are now in Limbo (literally) waiting to be propped up by a bunch of swivel eyed religiose wingnuts.

IMHO, we need a military coup.

Do we still have an Army ? ....

I don't think that is the answer. I think what we need is a Government of National Unity. My preferred model is one where those MPs- regardless of Party - who have won their seats with the largest majority form the Government. Ideally, the Ministerial positions would be filled by members with some experience of their subject. My proposals are not likely to materialise.

'Right Jeremy, let's try again shall we?
If you have 262 seats, and Theresa has 318 seats, who won the election?'

More codswallop from the Guardian:

Theresa May: all the evidence suggests she meant what she said about a hard Brexit. It seems to be generally agreed that the election result boiled down to a vote against austerity and a vote against a so-called “hard Brexit”, with the young – predominantly Remainers and angry about austerity – in full ...


I am starting to get real f@cking sick of MSM news from certain quarters. Blah, blah, Corbyn is the answer, blah, blah, hard brexit, blah, blah Labour should be in power, blah, blah, Grenfell Tower tragedy happened due to Tory cuts, blah, blah.

The amount of nonsense being published by the media has reached epidemic proportions. The BBC, Independent and Guardian are slavering over the prospect of a left wing coalition and unfortunately too many lame brains believe the socialist-slanting shyte that is fed to them. I despair.

I have to ask why you read a newspaper that has diametrically opposed views to your own. Does the raised pulse and blood pressure save the need for an early morning run?

Corbyn is a vegetarian National Socialist leading an anti-Semite party who despite losing an election is determined to break the democratic process through street protests and propaganda.
Side-kick McDonnel praises riots and civil disorder to achieve the aim.

Trying to think if there are any parallels in history we could examine? :scratch:

How about Oswald Moseley's British Union of Fascists in the 1930s?

Nah, Ozzy was just copying the fashion for black uniforms and lots of leather that was trending in Germany Spain Italy etc. The lout Macdonnel is wanting a 1917 Russian style overthrow of the system because he fancies a new socialist dawn where he can pretend to be a friend of the workers.
It is to Catweasel's shame that he doesn't disassociate himself from this lunatic but then there is so much shame to be heaped upon Corbyn's head that a little more won't change him.
We would benefit from some more personal style of leadership from the Govt. instead of a peekaboo look at various ministers who are more concerned with their seats around the table than actually saying anything intelligent , even if they could.
Sadly we have to forget government for the moment because the great and the good have voted to leave the European Union without a scintilla of knowledge regarding the cost to ordinary people who are already feeing the aforementioned cost.
If you wanted to hand this country to the socialists, brexit will definitely do it for you all.
