Whichever way you look at it, the illustrator needs re-educating.
It was total arrogance, the 'we're going to win this easily so might as well be honest about our shitty intentions' manifesto. Made it more satisfying when the manifesto lead ballooned and they suddenly had a fight on their hands.
Yup. I think they grossly underestimated how much that would piss off non-rural tories (and the rest of us).
A place secured for the re-education camp on west falkland
In my opinion the whole fox hunting thing predates even the current class struggle and goes back to the start of the one before that with the introduction of feudalism.
I don’t like being told what to do by a bloke with a French name who is sitting on a horse.
Too much of a reminder of the consequences of Harold’s housecarls getting a bit over confident and chasing the Normans down that hill.
Oh dear. Such a shame.
Tory group angry at Heseltine's 'sniping'
The old twat had smoke coming out of his ears on R4 interview today. Cable was on there as well in much the same anti brexit mode but being more coherent. I think we can expect plenty more of this neo lib/old tory/old nu labour/anti brexit/stop brexit ranting in the nu year. Should be a bit entertaining I reckon.
What is with people wanting others expelled from their party for wrong think? Ironically the same lot who'll wax on about Churchill being awesome.
Top Government adviser quits over Brexit and accuses Theresa May of being 'voice of Ukip'
I'm sure his mate Tony will find him a new gig.
Entertaining to laugh at, not to listen to.
Theresa May is preparing a New Year cabinet reshuffle which could spell bad news for David Davis
I imagine anyone halfway competent and without a preposterous ego within the parliamentary Tory party will be keeping some distance between themselves and this shambles of an administration so as to avoid reputational damage when it crashes and burns. Only those with no reputation to lose may apply.
Shit paper with a shit editor but good to see the headline.
Isn't this just standard get the vote out stuff?
Maybe, or maybe it’s Gideon’s masturbation fantasy.
I hope she does ok, just to rub it in his face.
That thing we these local elections. If Labour doesn't increase the share of the vote it'll be 'peak Corbyn' if May doesn't do ok we'll have more stories of Tory panic. I can't see any leadership change until Brexit is in the bag.
Happy new year
Feel sorry for Owen Jones, he doesn't know who to support.
That is a nice graph, but does little to explain how/why they are still in power.
Little does apart from greed and old age protectionism
Historical membership was often built around the old social clubs (as with other parties too), an ex-girlfriend's grandparents were members back in the day because they 'had the best sandwiches' apparently! It's a reflection of social changes which affected other parties too, plenty of Labour and Liberal clubs gone to the wall as well.
Doesn't really match to what we would now see as 'party activists' which were always smaller in number.
Having said that, the Tory party are quite fucked on activist numbers and had to bus them into target seats in recent elections, whereas Labour had no shortage of volunteers last year. It's reasonably significant, feet on the ground can be effective, but then so can a large war chest from corporate donors or a sympathetic ear in the press.
'upgrade to https' .... the cert has expired, no upgrading required.
The point - that the tory party website is down due to some clown-shoed incompetence at CCHQ - remains correct though.
I'm just mocking the tweet that claims that the Tories don't understand technology whilst misunderstanding the technology.
Grayling has started early then.
