Yes and whoever takes the job , will inherit a poison chalice , until the next general election and with what has gone on ,not much chance of them staying in power :coat: , and looking at the alternatives :roll: , going to be an interesting few years (decade) ahead of us , whilst we get back to normality , after Brexit and covid .

Just as a footnote I have no political persuasion , they all tend to tell you what you want to hear come election time , but once in office they forget and do their own thing :roll: .

Like all Govts. in the Western world, they were bought and paid for long ago, so no change...If you do notice your life getting better in any way, then please let me know, I would be interested in positive news. :yup:

Nothing to do with politics really, but I actually like the guy. His dishonesty is more honest than many of the snakes around him! :|

Sad. Liked his "let's get on and make things better attitude" but even at the end, I disagreed with choices he'd made. Leading up to that though I do feel that there has been a post-covid/post-brexit agenda to remove him. Even from news editors at the BBC.
Much like there was an agenda for Churchill to take the helm (and the fall) during WWII, he succeeded but went short-thrift soon after.
Buell owners should be committed (but not for life) ;-)

The trouble with politicians is (of all parties)
they talk so much about everthing , most of which they have little understanding
you can pretty much pick the quotes you want , too fit your own agenda :roll:


I get pissed off with tv interviews , when the game is pretend to be paxman
keep asking the same question repeatedly to wind up the politician to trip them up etc.

The news used to be..
Here are the facts make up your mind

Now it's the opinion of the presenter :yc:

I can't see how changing the bus driver
as we plunge off the cliff
will make a tupenny worth of difference


after all everybody except the Labour party could see Corbyn was un electable

you could have put a complete moron up against him & win..
oh wait they did


but do it vote , it annoys them
then they can come up with unbelievable reasons why they lost votes/seats etc. :rotfl: :rotfl:

Look at what has happened in Sri Lanka this weekend, it has been building for months.
Look at what is happening in (Farmers)The Netherlands, Italy, Germany, Poland...Sri Lanka was the experiment :shock: :shock:

The ride will be rough and all the time the WEF are setting the rules, then social collapse is on course for most of the Western World! Don`t believe me...Look at all the bills/legislation being proposed against the individual in many Western countries and the censorship laws, Canada... bill C11, have a look at that little gem, they are laying the foundations, it is coming.

Looking at the current contest to be our next PM, yes I was disappointed with Boris during his time in office.
He would appear to be unsuited to the roll of Minister of anything much, and would probably be better going back to presenting history documentaries on TV! ;)

As for the candidates to replace Boris;

Rishi looks too smarmy and condescending by far. If he really appreciated the shit that’s coming his way in October he wouldn’t be smiling so much! :?

Liz looked serious enough and I liked her bid to up defence spending by 50%, even if it needs a 100% hike, but we can only actually afford -25%. :roll:

Penny is my preferred option. She mentioned standing charges on energy bills at one point, but hardly with enough conviction. On the other hand she also has to remember who is actually going to cast the winning votes! :( :

Still my favourite has a nice bust!.......that’s as good a reason as any I can see. lOl
