Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

It’s utterly insignificant. The demand was set out earlier and she refused to meet it despite apparently already giving in to it. Everyone who is sympathetic will say he shouldn’t waste his time on someone who has done nothing to deserve it and squanders the last shred of goodwill she has. Everyone who isn’t sympathetic will say he’s made her look the more professional and willing to cooperate. It’s as much a charade as your PMQs scorecard.

It really isn't insignificant, all the papers and news are putting the heat on Corbyn currently for not accepting the invite. He's single handedly reduced the pressure on May. An utter simpleton

 

I can't believe the Times and the Mail have printed an anti-Corbyn headline. I'm certain they would have reported how duplicitous May has been just hours after pledging a fresh start if Corbyn had showed up. Corbyn's major error today hasn't been this utterly insignificant snub, it's calling the vote in the first place.

Hitting all the news channels too. He's a soundbite junky who has no plan, no direction and no leadership qualities. He's dreadful.

Imagine May going back to Brussels on the grovel again after telling them just a wee extra letter would do it to take the vote over the top, 

But Theresa, you lost by 235 votes! Do you ever talk to your MP's apart from that mad cartoon Mogg and the wild Ulstermen? What do you want now?!? Why are you still Prime Minister?

He is clearly on something. Im absolutely certain of it.

Agreed. Going by that and the George Osborne one it must be pure as f**k down Westminster way.

It started on the BBC with Theresa May hijacking a formal statement to attack the opposition. If nobody but Stephen Bush appears to have an issue with that then I'm not sure what anyone else is meant to do. There's a long list of good things that Labour intend to do and the press reform is one of the main ones. I genuinely wonder how a post-indy Scotland would approach it's media climate.

Quaaludes definitely still exist, you just have to have seriously good connections. Westminster politicians and Donald Trump prove this.

Any opinion on Corbyn's approach, policies, statements, whatever needs to consider if he is actually calling the shots, or is the hand of Seaumas Milne working him from behind.

If it's the former then the men in grey donkey jackets need a stern word in his ear, and if it's the latter then Milne needs to be replaced by someone possessing political acumen.

I love the Seamus Milne conspiracies. I think my favourite one was when centrists tried to suggest he'd personally commissioned Osama bin Laden for Comment is Free.

Assume it’s this one you mean? Got it from twitter.

 

The woman in the yellow top sitting next to her gave a great speech, a litany of one after another of her constituents being shafted by the Tory party.

Im not saying 100% hes a coke head, maybe he’s on strong painkillers or something (giving a tory the benefit of the doubt sticks in my craw) but the way he acts and appears is not normal even by tory standards.

Just to be clear, are you suggesting my post represents a 'Milne conspiracy' ? I don't think you need to be a centrist (I'm to the left of that) to question Corbyn's strategy and suggest that Milne may be influencing it.

Yesterday on the television, I caught a glimpse of a program called "Rip-off Britain" presented by Angela Rippon and others.

One story was a man who wanted to book a family holiday.  He found a website that showed him a big house in the country - it looked like a palace.  You could almost imagine a butler coming out to greet you.  He booked it for a week.

When they actually got there, it looked nothing like the pictures on the website.  More like a broken down barn.  The paint was peeling off, the doors were stiff, some of the windows were broken, there was no electricity and no hot water.
They had a miserable holiday but decided not to complain.  However, it took months to get the deposit back and even that required legal action.

Later the man saw reviews about the place.  They all said "Stay away - this person is a crook".  Sure enough the owner was known to the police and had been involved in numerous other scams.

This sort of program receives a steady supply of such stories.

However let's change the story slightly.  Imagine a friend finds out about the planned holiday, already knows about the place and gives them advanced warning.
You would then expect that friend to be thanked.  End of story.

Relating this to Brexit, I think there are a lot of people who wouldn't thank you at all.

"We've booked this holiday already so I guess we just have to go through with it."

"I asked everybody if they want to go and they all said yes.  Do you seriously want me to ask them again?"

"You say the place is just a broken down barn but that is just your opinion.  We want to stay in a palace.  We are going."

Seriously I wonder how many people are going to enjoy their time in Brexitland.

The biggest thing I've noticed through the whole shit show is how right wing the main tv channels are. Sky you can understand being right wing as it's Murdoch controlled. The BBC though have been on a par if not worse. They have a cabal of right wing journalists presenting all their flagship shows and the commentators they get on to spout their views are the worse of the right from rags like the mail and the times. I've also noticed presenters views being accepted as fact. This morning John Huphries said "the country doesn't want a second ref" no evidence was put forward to support his position just general soundbites like "the country just want's them to get on with it" It's been a whole clusterfuck from start till finish with both May and Corbyn being nothing but self serving arrogant arseholes.
