  2. My favorite part about today is how Trump directly implicated his Vice President Pounce in the federal crimes to which he's already confessed.
  3. This is all conveniently timed, since the impeachment furor, if carried through, should hit its peak around next summer when it will do the most damage to Trump's re-election efforts. Maybe the democrats will produce the pee-sex tape too if it even exsists, at an opportune moment... I don't see the republicans throwing trump under the bus in the Senate, for the simple reason that there is no one else on their side to compete, and Trump HAS been doing some of what they want (corporate tax cuts, for example).
  4. In a surprise to absolutely nobody, the Supreme Court has ruled that the prorogation of Parliament was unlawful and is therefore void. Parliament resumes tomorrow. If only Brexit were led by a true Brexiteer it would all be fine, they said.
  5. UK cannot meet EU deadline for Brexit and needs another year. Sorry what did you just say? https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/brexit-deadline-irish-backstop-no-deal-stephen-barclay-october-a9111756.html?fbclid=IwAR2_lVtS89QqAaKL_y9QyCrbV16Ff7bGoz0L2ZvL-B-HSlORnf_hSWsmJnk
  6. This exchange was accompanied by the loud crash of many, many pennies dropping... Can any Prime Minister ever have been less informed, less equipped, less equal to the task he faces? Thread
  7. Well here's the 'Operation Yellowhammer' document if anyone is curious. https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/831199/20190802_Latest_Yellowhammer_Planning_assumptions_CDL.pdf it does seem to be an updated version of the one that leaked several weeks ago and makes for grim reading.
  8. Brexit has been a shit show since it was first announced and comes back to the arrogance of those who ran the Remain campaign that it was a done deal. Why plan for something that would never ever come to pass? Only it did. Oops! Hence why Cameron bailed. Because if he stayed on, he knew he would be exposed as having no plan. It wasn't just because he would have been doing something he claims to have not believed in (despite his pre-vote insistences that he would trigger Article 50 'the next day' after the vote if Leave won). It's something that has plagued this Government since. Theresa May's insistence that 'No Deal is better than a bad deal' yet providing minimal to no planning for it believing she could strong-arm her own vision through. And flipping that round, it seems Boris has been planning for No Deal but not for a deal, all the while thinking he can strong-arm his vision through. A responsible government should plan for every scenario. And not one of them has been responsible, so no proper planning.
  9. Nothing was ever said about a deal during the referendum. In fact, nothing was ever said about the manner in which we would leave by the people who would - or rather, were supposed to - steer the ship. It was literally: stay or go. That's the entirety of it. I firmly believe people were voting based entirely on their own idea of what leaving meant. The trouble is that 'remain' only meant one thing: nothing changes, no need for legislature, no need for any further action. It wasn't explained precisely what manner we were supposed to leave in. The trouble here is this: we all thought they at least had an inkling of a plan. We weren't counting on our political elite being so arrogant that they assumed it was a 'done deal' therefore, why bother planning for the other outcome? That's why David Cameron resigned the day after, despite his "I'll trigger Article 50 the very next day" talk: he knew that he had been exposed. One idea I heard was 'leaving would hand the Tories more power' and I'm sorry: I laugh every time I hear that, because they have more power in than out. Why do you think so many of them campaigned to stay in? If they truly had less power the inverse would surely have been true. I'm also pretty sure that had David Cameron decided to campaign Leave, Boris would have campaigned Remain. As for Corbyn, he's a leaver, no matter what shirt he decides to wear each day. He knows his socialist programme can never exist while we're in the EU, so those hoping he would actually stick to his word and facilitate a remain campaign are lying to themselves. He also knows he'll never get power without at least superficially appearing to be pro-remain. The irony of this all is that it's him who has less power if we stay. If you truly believe in Remain, vote for someone who actually campaigned for it all along.
  10. "We need to leave the undemocratic EU" [five minutes later] "Please shut down democracy, unelected monarch" Johnson to ask Queen to suspend parliment https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-49493632 Cut to me hearing about bringing an unelected English monarch’s in on this, to help out the unelected English PM
  11. Tulsi would actually be a good candidate for the Dems, but unfortunately I don't see her really going to make it. She's honest, not crazy, not a lair (that I see), and not tainted with empty promises and partisan politics. She's smart, on top of topics and the best part is that she want's America to get out of running a globalized military with a focus on endless wars. Biden doesn’t have a shot at all. He’s Hillary 2.0. The only way he could do it is if he does all the things Hillary did but better. Like actually visit battleground states. Otherwise it will be another election like 2016. The vast majority of Americans stayed home.
  12. It now appears that this dossier is the most up to date one. I'm fed up with being told lies, blatent lies, and spin by so called government. MPs are supposed to be our servants, not the other way around. This government is treating their electorate with distain, in a manner approaching the Soviet norm. They need to be reminded of this time and time again!
  13. What an outrageous statement to make, and with the intent of demonising and pilloring those who wish to remain. If he's going to allege collaboration then he better produce the evidence. It's yet another example of Johnson's tongue getting out of control.
  14. A US-UK trade deal will not get through Congress if Brexit undermines the Good Friday Agreement, the Speaker of the US House of Representatives has said. Democrat Nancy Pelosi, whose party controls the House, said the UK's exit from the EU could not be allowed to endanger the Northern Irish peace deal. Her comments came after the US national security adviser said the UK would be "first in line" for a trade deal. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-49348062
