    UK Politics: Who Pays the Andyman?

    Yeah,bloody foreigners working in the NHS! A good old British emergency doctor wouldn't have done that! What do you meant there aren't any? Well, well just have to train up our own, I mean, how long can it take to train a doctor in emergency medicine? We've got the best part of a year left! Oh, and as for predictions... We're all fucked

    UK Politics: Who Pays the Andyman?

    I'm not quite sure how this thought process works, given that 5 years of tory policy would be for 5 years; whereas Brexit would be for life; and at least 30 years before we're back on an even keel economically with a massive lurch to the right, and the breakup of the union thrown in for giggles. Mind you, of the tory's successfully asset strip the NHS in their 5 years, then that could well be for life as well. A much shorter life.

    Lin Dem also much more likely to kick out Raab than Labour where you are. All the tactical voting sites seem to agree on that

    UK Politics: Who Pays the Andyman?

    Well, posted my vote off today. I've not been impressed by the Lib Dems this campaign, but (apparently) they've got the best chance of beating our ERG twatopotamus, so they got my vote. https://tactical.vote/compare?
  6. It's almost like the combination of a "Them vs Us" attitude, gun/violence fetishisation, rampant machismo and a denial that the word "de-escalation" exists is a generally bad combination for a police force to adopt.

    Hang on - "given the behaviour of the courts" - enforcing the law of the land and preventing a rogue administration from just closing down parliament because they don't like being held to account? By far the more concerning aspect of "the behaviour of the courts" was the people acting illegally in an attempt to close down democracy - which FTR was Johnson and chums, not the law courts. By "Look at the relationship between the government and the courts" they mean "We should be above the law" By "Update the human rights act" they mean "Strip the populace of some of their rights"

    Not to mention a manifesto pledge to do whatever he likes regardless of legality

    Well, at least no-one ever accused Pasty Cockwomble of having any morality, or love of accountability: https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/boris-johnson-shuts-down-press-21024829

    Current plan is Brexit, then Scottish independence (650 => 591), and Irish reunification (591 => 573). Added advantage that Scots and Northern Irish don't really vote conservative, so that's 64 fewer opposition MPs, at a cost of only 13 conservatives

  13. And yet, it's the one area of policy where they actually have a reasonable record to defend. Though we all know he snubbed it because he wouldn't be allowed to just repeat "get brexshit doenppne" on loop
  14. "The Conservative Party is threatening to review Channel 4’s public service broadcasting obligations after the broadcaster replaced Boris Johnson with an ice sculpture at Thursday night’s election debate. In a dramatic escalation of the war of words between the Tories and Channel 4 that will likely provoke outcry, a Conservative source told BuzzFeed News that if they win the coming election they will reassess the channel’s public service broadcasting licence." https://www.buzzfeed.com/alexwickham/boris-johnson-is-threatening-to-review-channel-4s

    His Dark Materials Series

    My thought was that if you're following from Sam Elliot in that role; you HAVE to do something different with the character, because you simply can't do the same thing better, and trying will get you roundly panned. Of course, I'm still not sold.
  18. Entirely seperate from the previous points - this article is a couple of years old; but I've only just come across it - analysing the myth that conservatives are the fiscally responsible, whilst labour are fiscally untrustworthy (analysing stats for public borrowing, and payment of national debt since WWII): http://www.taxresearch.org.uk/Blog/2016/03/13/the-conservatives-have-been-the-biggest-borrowers-over-the-last-70-years/
  19. This seems familiar from a recent discussion here:
  20. Oh look, another argument that only works if you pretend that every country that isn't the USA doesn't exist. What fun.
  21. I must admit, I'm getting a little confused as to which debate is which, but isn't the C4 ok me he's running away from, the "Policies other than Brexit" one? So not just nowhere to hide, but also one where he'd not be allowed his favourite catchphrase, hosted by a broadcaster that he likes to snub in his attempt to control the "free" press (since official C4 policy is to call out untruthful things as being untruthful)
  22. Oh look - Pasty Cockwomble's still scared of accountability, and has refused to take part in the second leader's debate - or indeed, his local hustings. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/election-debate-boris-johnson-party-leaders-tv-cancel-corbyn-a9212926.html
