The question is, will Jeremy Corbyn survive as many Tory leaders as Castro survived US presidents?
" ... and what rough beast, its hour come round at last ... "
I hope not.
Please stay while we savour your humiliation, Britain tells May
I think you're right!
Seems all of the Corbyn doubters (of which I was one for a while) have been proven wrong. I wonder how many pundits & commenters will admit that they got it backwards?
Librarian promoted to Head Teacher not great idea.
This is the best bit of all. She has to go, but the Tories can't hold a leadership election with the Brexit negotiations looming. They really are fucked.
Shortest thread ever I hope , could be resolved in under 24 hours
Laura Torygirl (BBC) - leader of DUP in BBC Radio Ulster interview this morning has suggested that it may be very difficult for the Maybot to survive.
Are they really going to do this? It seems they are.
Don't think people will wear johnson as leader, not after £350m/week for NHS
Veteran Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.
Stick Boris in the hot seat, he can do a quick and dirty deal with Europe and then F**k off.
"Vote for me so I can deliver the £350m/week for the NHS that I promised".
I think this thread is a bad idea. Any fule kno "...time is up" threads mean they stay, such is the power of Urbz
I think there'll be a reverse ferret special in private eye this fortnight.
Yeah that was my first thought. We are the Kingmakers.
Good, the longer she stays on as leader of the Tories, the more harm she can do to the fuckers.
Let's hope so
The Tories are ruthless in a way the left aren't. The Evil Blairites have spent what? two years trying to behead their interloper and he's just got their best result in years. Whether they're keeping her or getting rid, it'll be settled a lot faster than that.
Who would take the job?
If they've any sense they'll make her carry the can for making a complete cock of Brexit. Then she can retire gracefully - "my work here is done" - while they anoint someone with a clean pair of hands.
That's the way I'd do it.
There is a school of thought that she called an election so that she would be less beholden to the hard liners in her own party. She had a working majority, after all, and there was no way the opposition could have got in the way of whatever it was she had in mind (Not that she told us). Should she somehow manage to cobble together a shitty coalition it will be with the Irish nutters, and she will have to give them sweeteners, not to mention having to placate each and every loon in the Tory party. Easy to see how that translates into hard brexit demands, which she will fail to get, leading to us bailing out on World Trade term, the no deal being better than the supposed bad deal.
In summary, this could push things to the right, not the left and in any event, setting internal politics aside, she has made a complete fucking mess of things.
True ruthlessness would be refusing to allow her to resign as the punishment for losing.
Since when is free trade a left thing? Seen so many people claiming no deal/hard Brexit is a right wing thing, but never before Brexit have I heard so many left wing people pushing for free trade agreements.
Pickman's model you planned this thread months ago didn't you?
although i said repeatedly i would never post this thread i changed my mind when i saw it was in the national interest
