Great news .....chaps !

The social engineering policies are beginning to bear fruit. !!

This will force those feckless and idle benefit scroungers to leave their 96 inch plasma tv watching, 200 a day habit and 4 cans of special for breakfast lifestyle .....and, the really adroit synergy here......in the near future, there will be vacancies galore, so no more derisory and feeble excuses, such as being impaired for example, to attempt avoiding their social responsibilities and damned well working for a living !

Hurrah for the fledgling Great Britain ( beta version ) what !

More faces than a town hall clock

Tony Blair wants tougher immigration rules for EU citizens - BBC News

Labour supporters must be hanging their collective heads in shame at this as no one can deny that this bloody idiot started the whole problem whilst in office!

Still with Blair poking his nose into things and Jezza as the current Labour leader UK politics has not looked so rosy in many a year.

For all the ranting and raving exhibited by the left, shame is not one of the emotions they ever express.

Mr Blair's proposals are to "tighten" existing free movement rules, including on benefit entitlement, and seek to negotiate an "emergency brake" on EU migration in certain sectors.
I think the EU have been fairly clear that membership of the EU and freedom of movement are inseparable.

The problem for the Left is that no matter how hard they try to 'diss' the Tory party there is always the ever present spectre of BLiar, the guy who gave us the Dodgy Dossier, the Illegal War, profligate Broon and was at the tiller as the countries coffers got emptied.

Now all they have to look forward to is years and years of inelectability under Corbyn and Di.

UK politics truly is in a beautiful place.

Regarding Jacob Rees-Mogg:

"I am not interested in being Tory Leader" = I am interested in being Tory leader when the time is right.

His views on gay marriage and abortion do still chime with more people than some might imagine although not a majority of course. Such views should not preclude him from high office if he is willing and able. Nor are they likely to become policy if he were to become leader since a majority would be required both in the house and in public sentiment. That doesn't seem likely.

Not so sure, actually, not with the Tories currently doing everything in their power to help Labour's current Trot administration achieve their socialist paradise in the UK.

There are two prerequisites for the socialist paradise: ending of FoM, and a Labour government. The Tories are handing them the first on a plate, and will ensure a Labour victory next time by using brexit to f**k up the economy. (Yes I know that Labour are even worse than the Tories at managing the economy, but the electorate has a track record of forgetting this after a few years.)

Says it all really

Tony Blair's bid to stop Brexit with tougher immigration rules 'hopeless'

the face of the Left looking very very embarrassed.

Actually my favourite Labour person I think claims to be a "socialist" but is definitely not a Trot or a Corbynista. I'm pretty sure she agrees with me on all this stuff, just not in public.

Who would have thought that, lets think, overseas locations possibly Majorca for example, are so seemingly devoid of attractions on a Sunday that the only recourse is JB........

Meanwhile, back in a bleak, windswept, deluged UK, there's a rather unfortunate hiccup. Unfortunate in the sense that desperation may yet backfire under closer scrutiny.......which would be nice now wouldn't it.

Spot on? I haven't seen any indication that either the mass of the Conservative party - or the public - abhor or dislike JRM for stating his views and that they are RC doctrine. Quite the opposite in fact.
