The sheer strawberry floating audacity of that has to be applauded. Even Orwell would have considered that too fantastic.

Yep, the balls it must take for the architect of the hostile environment that lead to the deportation of black British citizens to write that. :lol:

Although she did say “without whom our country wouldn’t be the country it is today” - she might not mean that was a good thing. ;)

A billion pound mistake. In any other walk of life a business would close, investors would withdraw, people would be sacked and not work again. The tolerance of the voting public is staggering. Even if the public don't care about the people the money was going to, the fact that the department working out our pensions can't do maths is shocking.

Chuka Umunna the only hope Labour has to bring them back from the brink as a potential future leader you say?

I've wondered this a lot since Lord Sainsbury withdrew his financial support of Progress.

Yes Tory lite. What could go wrong :lol:

You advocate filling parliament up with people who have no interest in being there beyond the pay packets they can get for consulting during and after their term and thus not representing you?

I do believe he is what the Americans would call a Learjet liberal. He’s sat next to the champagne socialist in 1st class (were he even frequenting such povo transport).

I am continually surprised by people being continually surprised that the politicians they support are in fact knobheads.

If you believe attracting swing voters is the key to Labour winning an election, then Chuka seems a far better choice than Corbyn who couldn't even beat the Maybot.

We never did find out why he threw in the towel at the previous labour leadership election did we? I think the rumour at the time was that he was a closet gay and was going to be outed?

One of my friends a few years ago attempted to become an MP and although he didnt reach that aim had some success.

However when he first plotted to do this, I asked him for which party. He said 'Conservative, they're probably next aren't they?' when deciding his party (this was a fair while ago).

Its fair to say the power over the politics mattered more to him.

Well it's better than Tory extra strength and I'm really worried where we'd end up under Corbyn.

Wow what's it like being really worried about social democratic policies?
