The whole "Put a legal cap on migration" thing particularly scares me given that my wife is an immigrant and will need to renew her visa in a little over a year. Yes it's the Tories that are pledging it and they won't win but as an idea I worry about it catching on.

Was just reading about Farage getting in the way of some perfectly innocent object throwing and the final paragraph made me laugh.

During a campaign walkabout in Newcastle in 2019, he also had banana and salted caramel milkshake thrown at him.

Does the flavour of the milkshake make any difference to the fascist it hits?

It doesn't specify that it was a vegan milkshake and I therefore believe it was a false flag.

Lobbing rocks at that banana split only plays into the hands of the banana splits who want banana splits like him in power tbh.

Anyone dumb enough to think "I wasn't going to vote for Reform, but then I saw something being thrown at Nigel!" was already voting for Reform.

He added: “That’s why I say it’s a Jeremy Corbyn-style manifesto, which is load everything into the wheelbarrow, don’t provide the funding and hope that nobody notices the money isn’t there.”

Starmer :wub: Love a bit of revisionist history, bodes well for the future. Especially given he specifically stated he wouldn't trash Corbyn's record. What a loveable snake scamp :wub:

Corbyn's record deserves to be trashed though as it was terrible.

...and don't even get me started on the B side.
