Brexit

Vile bitch


#1553

leftists? straight out of GOP handbook that one.


#1554

it’s going well over there


#1555

Looks like Dublin are going to have to call a halt to the brexiteers cake and eat it plans. someone needs to the tories to make up their effing minds on what they want. Their red lines are not compatible with each other and they can;t decide on a compromise - think it is up to us to force the issue at this point.


#1556

Aye and Brussels have said they’ll back us in using the veto next month


#1557

#1558

Oh dear Boris


#1559

Shape British foreign policy or share British foreign policy?
It’s Facebook, after all.


#1560

Tories didn’t exactly get wiped in locals … :unamused:

Labour’s best chance in years and they’re in disarray …


#1561

UKIP decimated and Labour can’t cash in.


#1562

Labour have corbyn. He’s wetter then your average drain. The ukip vote has gone to the tories (which is mission accomplished for them).


#1563

Corbyn helped re-establish Labour in fairness from a very low place. Now they need a young talented leader to take them forward.


#1564

Disagree. He lost an election that was there for the taking. Sadly he is being credited with coming close so he’s safe for another while.


#1565

He didn’t re-establish Labour as such. He moved it back away from the centrist party that Blair had established to a more Leftist party of origin. Possibly laudable in political ideology terms but less appealing to the middle ground electorate. Right? Wrong? No answer to that really …


#1566

A center left labour would have won that election imho.


#1567

For sure. The reality with Labour is that the more they travel back to their roots the more they reduce their chances of ever forming a Government


#1568

All about timing and the specifics of the moment. Labour trying to be centrist at that moment were getting crucified anyway. What they did at that election served a purpose relatively speaking very well. Still left the CP to reap what they sowed which was so right on many levels though terrible for many ordinary people in the short-term and still a major deficit in terms of the bigger picture. Question is whether the likes of British Labour and Macron can build on the basis. So far no sign of good revolution.


#1569

Don’t agree. They simply were not ready for govt. Next time no excuses whatever the outcome.


#1570

Interesting tweet


#1571

Presuming it’s down to the fact Labour didn’t take many if any seats off the Tories and vice versa.
