Aside from wanking at your desk or making up your own foreign policy with regards Israel, is it actually possible to be so gooseberry fool at a job that you get fired from this government?

Looks like it was Hunt that refused to move, so May gave him more responsibility. :lol:
She's an unbelievably weak Primeminister. Absolutely no authority

The only explanation I can think of is that May was drinking a Dr Pepper at the time.

Remain-leaning + heavily remain constituency = guaranteed Brexit rebel.

That's not just useless, that's outright heartless.

I haven't seen the Marr interview yet, but I would imagine it's probably just a very stupid slip of the tongue, on an awkward as strawberry float question, where she had to think quickly to deflect blame.

Toby Young has quit after enough people noticed he's a complete twat:

Some examples of his past comments:
https://www.theguardian.com/media/2018/ ... ass-people

"By Wednesday, Young had deleted all but about 8,500 of the 56,000 tweets he had sent since joining Twitter in January 2009."

The caricature drawn of me in the last seven days, particularly on social media, has been unrecognisable to anyone who knows me.

Really Toby? My impression was the caricature of you drawn on social media had been entirely founded on your own social media output even though you strove to delete vast chunks of it in the last few days.

That's good news, he really is an utter cretin.

The real questions should be asked of those that appointed him. Did they do absolutely no research at all into the arsehole that they were hiring?

This reshuffle has been a real egg on face moment.

Weak and wobbly. Upgrade the Maybot software.

And yet the Tories are still pretty much neck and neck with Labour in the opinion polls. She's dreadful, the cabinet manage to make incompetence the norm and various public bodies are being run into the ground. Labour should be absolutely running away with this and yet they aren't...
