One more big push and we're there mateys. It's SOCIALISM TIME! *Corbyn bursts through the door wielding the belt of the proletariat while the borgeousie scream no daddy Corbyn no*


Reminder we're in peak media bias against Labour and their relentless assault against them, and there are extra rules and safeguards during election season to push us over the top. Not to mention Boris and his inevitable failure to actually deliver on his promises.

Under PR it would likely be a Labour-Liberal-Green alliance, with SNP and Plaid along for the ride.

Either that or the Liberals go full traitor and join Tory-BXP and shove out an "I'm sorry" video.

This, but also Nick Clegg did exactly this when he just straight up fucked over most Liberal voters and it got remixed.

If the libs did that they would honestly deserve to die as a party. Hopefully they learnt their lesson from the coalition.

i am annoyed that corbyn's brexit stance means i am no longer as supportive of him as i once was

hopefully the membership will pull their heads out of their asses then force him into going along with something sensible
ask moderation about reading serious moderation candidates TGs without telling them about it until afterwards and/or apparently refusing to confirm/deny the exact timeline of TG reading ~~~ i hope you never sent any of the recent mods or the ones that got really close anything personal!

signature edit: confirmation has been received. they will explicitly do it before and without asking. they can look at TGs basically whenever they want so please keep this in mind when nominating people for moderator or TGing good posters/anyone!

And Corbyn is a fantastic campaigner. Unless something stupid and disastrous happens, it's definitely looking like we've got a Labour government in our sights. John McDonnell's going to be Chancellor and I can't wait.

Jeremy Hunt just had his 'emperor's new clothes' moment under Andrew Marr's scrutiny-oops, busted.

The Bluster of Boris just got staunched by an admonishment by Mr. Marr. Scolded like a schoolkid - for reeling out his well rehearsed routines.

The thing about Boris though he can talk for hours pulling in anecdotes about Pliny or some such thing like the Nazis rolled into Poland -relentless.

Sorry, that's not "some gobshite", that's Alan Mendoza, founder of conservative think tank The Henry Jackson Society, a doctor of history, and patent gobshite.

So it's less "think" and more "tank"...

Theresa May takes aim at Boris Johnson, warning he’ll be powerless as PM and won’t get new Brexit deal

Well, I honestly don't expect much of a Brexit deal anyway. Even if there is one, it's going to be a terrible one that's bound to ripple through Britain's Economy, the rest of Europe, and possibly the global economy.
