I’m not supporting xyzzzz. If we are to have a new thread I would post as a big fan of Remain that hasn’t equivocated on this like xyzzzz.

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.

Jumping in on a point from the previous thread but there's no way Labour loses Vauxhall, they've held it since 1950 at least and only had less than 50% of the vote twice. The demographic change would need to be gigantic.

pity about all those UKIP/brexit-ultra entryists that joined the 20000 dead members still paying subs last year. It would have hilarious if it came out in the wash that the LibDems have more than treble their membership numbers.

ladies and gentlemen, our prime minister

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!’”

boris sure spends a lot of time talking about 'defeating corbyn' despite corbyn not being in power iirc

Thank you all for the incredible honour you have done me. The time for campaigning is over and the time for work begins to unite our country and party, deliver Brexit and defeat Corbyn. I will work flat out to repay your confidence

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.

Frothy coffee is mine. It’s art.

Receiving his "frothy coffee" in Pontypridd's Prince's cafe, Owen Smith stopped mid-sentence to express some amusement. "I tell you it is the first time I have ever been given little biscuits and a posh cup in here," Smith said, looking up at the owner David Gamberini, as his order was placed on the table. "Seriously, I would have a mug normally," the MP added, examining the refreshments in front of him.
