    What's the matter with the Brits ? Don't they recognize intelligence, gravitas and sincerity when they see it ?

    that's pretty cool, I like the way you Brits run Parliament, always entertaining

    and it's cool you have Tories that will oppose Boris 'Trump Lite' Johnson, unlike the smarmy RINOs over here sucking Donny's junk on command

    He's been flayed by almost every publication across Europe- the UK included. One or two of his immoral ilk have tried to be kind.

    Boris Johnson's blustering strategy has fallen at the first hurdle

    Now the prime minister risks getting the election he wants but the result he fears

    Looks like he won't get a general election, moon. He needs a two-thirds majority in the Commons for that, and Corbyn chickened out - he won't play unless he gets a guaranteed no no deal first. If they can get that enacted by next week - requiring the govt. to beg Brussels for yet another deadline extension - who knows where we go from there? Johnson won't do it.

    Hardly ' chickened out ' is it . Corbyn has the Blond Blusterer in a head-lock. The fool sacked the cream of his own party and invited it himself.

    Nobody trusts Johnson. His word has less value than shit. I guess that there won't be a general election until he is trussed up and oven-ready.

    It has to be humiliating for your first three votes to fail. I wish our Senate had a backbone.

    Yep. There is speculation that Keir Starmer is about ready to put the knife into Comrade Jez. I understand that Starmer won't agree to a general election even if there IS a guaranteed no no deal. But he'll have to contest an election in 2022, and what will people think of Labour by then?

    I've voted Labour all my life, but I'm not voting for this shower. It came in with a Keir and it goes out with a Keir - what do you think?

    I think that Corbyn's grass-roots support is massive and that Momentum taps into what is necessary to win an election with enthusiasm and precision. Corbyn- and what he represents -is all that stands between the UK and the worst excesses of Orwellian dystopia. You won't agree- but it's the chestnut tree for those who empower fascism , in the UK and everywhere else.
    I'd like to say ' suit yourself ' - but I'll be high on their lists of undesirables.

    Six lost votes in succession, condemned by the courts for lying to the queen, crucified by his previous party leader in his memoirs and STILL maintaining that he will drag the whole of the UK out of the EU on Halloween . The Eton boy is a disaster.

    You have Starmer, Watson, McDonnell and Corbyn at each other's throats. Can't see them lasting much longer!!

    Johnson's 'bonkers' plan for £15bn bridge derided by engineers

    https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/...d-by-engineers

    Engineering experts have poured cold water over Boris Johnson’s “bonkers” plan to build a bridge between Scotland and Northern Ireland for £15bn.

    The prime minister – who first touted the idea of the 20-mile-plus bridge last year – put a price on his proposal for the first time last week, saying it would “only” cost the multibillion pound sum.
    Being a nutcase is one thing- but being a dangerous nutcase is something else.

    What did this asshole cook up with Netanyahu on the latter's recent London visit ? I feel a shudder of apprehension.
