Refreshments shall include premium British ale and gin, in order to wash down a delightful dish of delicious delecacies, such as (chlorinated) chicken pie, (protein-fed) beef steak, and (mystery) meat curries.

The first poll will concern the most pressing issue of the day, the tory leadership election. Will the peoples prime minister Boris Johnson win out against the managerial, boring Jeremy Hunt? Lets find out as we embark on round 10 of UK politics: what fun will be had?

((going out soon but thought I'd create this. I'll edit in a proper debate question and opinion later, but it's the 10th iteration of the UK politics thread, obviously.))

Nice alliteration. :)

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.


that's kinda awesome actually, seeing may actually give someone a good left and right for once and outright shit all over the brexiter narrative. has she finally entered her "all out of fucks to give" stage?
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!

So for what already feels like the umpteenth time: why the fuck did you want all this, Brexiteers?

I voted remain in 2016, but looking at the situation now, if there were a second referendum I'd probably vote leave. This has all gone far too far to have it not happen, and frankly no remain campaign would have enough traction to win anyway. It's a fucking mess, but there aren't any brakes on this train. The best we can hope for here is that the Tories make a complete foul-up of it (no worries there), and that it delivers Labour a solid majority in 2022. We lost our shot at toppling this government in by-elections when the CUKs threw away any hope of their re-election, meaning they'd never vote against the government in a confidence motion.

To be clear: This is all Nick Clegg's fault. The FTPA has deeply, deeply ruined politics by artificially maintaining this zombie government since Corbyn killed it in 2017.

If you haven't heard, this battle is over. It's now second referendum and remain, on the grounds that the soft-Brexit compromise is no longer something either side is prepared to tolerate.

Corbyn was initially doing the whole high ground unite the country shit and didn't catch the mood in the room that this was full blown Kulturkampf. This was the "We'll do the common market Plus deal."

Following this failing to appeal to brexiteers and his own party getting pissy it turned into gradually inching toward second referendum.

Really? Because it was my understanding that pro-EU sentiment had increased since the referendum, and the EU hasn't even been that vindictive yet.
