The MPs standing for election appear to be going to have problems winning over their fellow MP's because it appear just about all of them are standing.


Rabb, why on earth would anyone want a minister as PM that negotiated the deal to say he wouldn't support the very deal he negotiated.

Gove, back me to beat Corbyn, I wouldn't trust him to beat eggs.

Stewart, I couldn't serve in a Johnson cabine....... against hard Brexit, another remoaner

Hancock, who? Another remoaner

Really, if you have been politically aware during the tenure of an incumbent prime minister, what are they going to tell you that you don't know? They certainly aren't going to be impartial. They will probably skim over petty details - John Major and Edwina Currie spring to mind - Tony Blair and his life style coach - John Prescott and . . . - Jeremy and his squeeze (pick your Jeremy).

If you have a political party that is led by a Marxist, has a Marxist as its Secretary of the Treasury in waiting, has a Marxist as a Chief of Propaganda and has a defined and significant force of supporting riff raff, Communists, Marxists and other such things masquerading under the red label of Momentum, how can anyone who votes for them be described as anything other than a Marxist.
There is no more Labour Party and all those who profess to vote Labour in any future election are but dissembling and diverting from their real direction of voting which is, of course, as I hope has been made very clear, Marxist.
Next time you spot a Vote Labour sign outside some deranged mans house, allow your imagination to flash the word Marxist and you'll be spot on for the direction of dangerous delusional derangement of the dippy dweller.

You've given us the upside - what's the downside?

As we know, the UK's premier media source, like wot the Gruadian indisputably is, ( this view is not, sadly, entirely universal here on JB ) is often accused of being partisan.

Here's a couple of rags that can be defined as such.

Funny that Gove, presumably not having his sleep disturbed this time with his aspirations, should use the M.o.S for example...nowt to do with his wife and whom she's employed by of course.....

And the Excess.....who, strangely, have been supporting Nige for some considerable time now.....subject to weather warnings of death and destruction / statins, / miracle cures and other lurid headlines in lieu......

After a brief hiatus, we note the attempt to gain an entry into the Guiness Book of Records has resumed momentum with a post containing no less than six references to?......Marxists!........ . It's only a matter of time ,

Anyone got odds on the Con MPs selecting 2 remainers to be put before the Party membership vote?

If we have a general election and if Labour wins, I vote we should all troop off to cavortingcheetah's gaff where we can watch him/her go into such a spin, he will disappear up his own fundament! Calm down man! This fetish will do you no good.

We are repeatedly told by Brexitters that the message on the Big Red Bus wasn't what it implied, and if people were too stupid to understand that was just their fault.

Exactly the same applies to Vote Labour signs. People will vote without understanding the implications.

​Brexit will be followed by a Labour government. Get used to the idea.

Much more likely to be a hung parliament I would have thought. Still let's see what the EU elections bring. I have no predictive powers so no need to get used to any ideas I might come up with.

The Guardian/Labour believe that everyone should get free houses and more benefits. I am sure if the Brexit Party said the same he would be shouting for them.

I agree the likely outcome is a Labour lead government, but depending upon just how much of a mess the 100,000 or so retired colonels and pensioned off WI members make of the upcoming Tory party leadership election (or if you prefer PM anointment) I think a more likely outcome will be a coalition, with Labour / SNP or Labour / LibDem - perhaps Lab / LibDem / SNP - which would, as an upside temper the worst excesses of Corbyn, and if you're of that persuasion (and no Brexit deal has been finalised by the time the election comes) the very real potential for a new referendum or cancellation of Art.50 (both potential coalition partners would be demanding either one or the other).

Commendable though this suggestion is, I've yet to see it on any Labour manifesto. That said, they have promised to halt the swaging and malicious policy cuts imposed on benefit recipients which is a vote winner alone.

Alas, in case you have missed my sentiments, may I confirm I 'm not exactly a rabid supporter of Farage so unlikely to vote for this hologram party.

He handed over 50p.

So: I gave away half a book by Boris to a Labour MP, at a loss of 50p to party funds, but it was worth it for the laugh. Whether he used it for loo paper is not recorded - I have met him again since, but we talked about other things (bicycles and #brexshit).
Thanks for that Gertrude. Do you remember how many pages Boris` book had. I `ve got to get the one with most pages, for a good Brexshit. Al the daily papers are not worth the paper they are written on.

It was a not-very-thick paperback. I imagine one could get more paper for the money by other means.

And all those Guardian/Labour followers would suddenly all be against the idea. It doesn't matter what some parties/individuals say, some people will never agree with them.

Labour slaughtered by Lib Dems because of their support for #brexit (as expected).

Labour response is "oh dear, we lost votes because we weren't #brexshitty enough, we'll have to become more #brexshitty" (as expected).

Brexit aside, I'd be saying "bring it on, please feel free to hand us Cambridge City Council on a plate next May". Better practice my public speaking for when I'm mayor.

Calm down. That isn't quite right is it. Doesn't accord with the facts. Now take a deep breath and give it another go.

"Actually, you know looking at the figures we're doing better than the Brexit party" the well known saying spouted by one and all other candidates interviewed after the MEP election results as they got their arses handed to them on a plate.
There were a few that smelt the coffee, one was a conservative that said they had been well and truly bent over and........ Anne Widdecombe was brilliant in her reply while being interviewed.

Sales of Horlicks must have soared last night with many of you glued to the box waiting for the not entirely unpredictable result.....that and it's a BH today as well.

There was a little beacon of light however.....alas,

Not me: sick of hearing about it. Mind you, the free and easy way people have chosen to vote tactically shows how little Meps really matter. As a political entity the EU is sh#t. Can we just have the good bits please ?
