Re: Join the Labour Party and save your country!

Shocking that a clearly and plainly antisemitic leadership has not already been deposed. It is, although given the membership base I don't think they would be replaced anything significantly better. That said, if them staying put keeps that shower of sh1t out of power then every cloud... Don't thin...

Re: BREXIT - Meh.

It seems from Twitter that both candidates have said they'd reject a time limit to or unilateral exit from the backstop. Not really sure what to say about that. Erm, do you mean that neither will accept those as enough of a concession on the backstop or that neither will accept any kind of backstop?

Re: BREXIT - Meh.

An interesting thread on likely response to Johnson's Brexit plan and what he might actually get. Seems to chime with that FT article from earlier. https://twitter.com/CER_Grant/status/1150803659409842180 Also this summary of probabilities.

Re: BREXIT - Opinions Of Commuters From Leafy Surrey Are The Only Ones That Count. Apparently.

I see that Trump has unintentionally set another test for the prospective leaders. What's he done now? Other than the racism. Just that. Can either candidate balance the need to maintain a friendly relationship with the US with clear criticism of Trump's disgusting racism. You think that's somethin...

Could he have finally pushed the PLP too far? There's a feeling of a showdown brewing, but we've been here before.

Re: May has gone - ding dong the utter, utter, total failure of a prime minister is gone

A nice assessment of columnists and Boris Johnson in particular, by Matthew Parris. There is communism; there is capitalism, Conservatism, Catholicism — and there is columnism. It’s a cast of mind. Its practitioners are a type. First, foremost and for ever, Boris will be a columnist. The reflections...

A slightly more intellectualised version of Johnson's "f*** business" quote from Bernard Jenkin. https://mobile.twitter.com/ukandeu/status/1150696526165020672 https://ukandeu.ac.uk/sir-bernard-jenkin-mp-brexit-and-the-constitution/ It appears "some dislocation" is the new euphemi...

Re: National Anthem of England/UK/GB&Ni needs changing

Is northern ireland a separate nation. I thought it was England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales as the 4 nations of the British Isles. Out of them only three are part of the United Kingdom. So northern Ireland should not really have a national anthem as such. A regional anthem perhaps. Doesn't Yorkshi...

Inspired by the German one. "Yorkshire, Yorkshire ovver owt else!"


The original German anthem was written about the unification of the former Holy Roman Empire states into a single country - hence 'Germany above all'.

Goo, I think your thread title changes are quite amusing. Although as you're the OP you can do what the **** you want with the thread title and all everyone else can do is moan about it.

Re: National Anthem - England/UK/GB&Ni

We should have a referendum. 1. Should we keep the anthem 2. Should we not keep the anthem. No need to choose the new one until we have decided we need it then it should be easy enough to agree on the replacement. This would result in the musical equivalent of Boaty McBoatface. It's nothing special...

Re: BREXIT - Ich Bin Auslander

Clearly the leak and the way it was so targeted at getting rid of Darroch is the biggest problem. Ambassadors can't do their job if they have to assume private briefings could become public at any point and Darroch's successor will have the same problem until that investigation is concluded (I thin...
