There are plenty of people in ILX that I can work with, that I do work with. But xyzzzz is a Brexiteer. He cannot be trusted on Brexit. That is abundantly clear.

and if it means that 50,000 more disabled people must die under austerity so that we can have that monument, so be it

The UK is a notoriously impoverished country whose ruling class simply can't afford to invest more in handouts charity than it already has. I mean, the fact that you have so many caritative organisations per capita (quite unlike socialist France) is proof positive that Brits are the most generous humans in existence.

He reminded his audience of ministers and party staff of his campaign mantra: “Deliver Brexit, unite the country and defeat Jeremy Corbyn.”

Pointing out that this spelled “dud”, he joked that the final e – “energise” – had been left out. “I say to all the doubters: dude, we are going to energise the country!’”

profiles in courage:

Tobias Ellwood, the defence minister who has been very critical of the idea of a no-deal Brexit as an acceptable outcome, is not planning to resign, and has urged colleagues to support Boris Johnson. “It’s a duty of every MP to support the prime minister right now,” he told the Press Association.

Later in his career, Ellington produced some rather pretentious stuff but this is timeless, quality jazz.

And while I don’t think Mingus himself ever made a vast amount of money or added to the development of jazz, this is simply a wonderful record.

These are unacceptable jazz opinions for a future PM, I'd imagine JC's favourite jazz musicians are Courtney Pine and the guy who played sax in Latin Quarter which will have to do.

With someone like Weetman (and others) I think its good to observe that level of grifter in party politics, what they think and how they act. Especially if you want to be part of a solution to the problems we face.
