Bizzare that the BBC coverage of the economic situation doesn't even mention Brexit. 

The issues are possibly more nuanced and complex than many might think given inflation is 1% higher in the Eurozone than it is in the UK.

Yes, sorry I wasn't saying Brexit was the sole thing to blame (although we were promised lower energy bills) that said I think us hampering our own exports seems daft in the context of rising prices across the board.

Depending on how the election goes for the tories you may see some work on trying to resolve this crisis in the coming days.

🤣 They'll double down or at best ask someone to be the sacrificial lamb and go take up a high paid journalism/think tank offer.

 

the idea of them genuinely looking after the working class is incredible

What's more incredible is there are still a significant number of working class voters backing these shysters- especially in the North of England.

You mean the shipments to Rwanda will begin?

It will be lapped up despite it costing us fortunes in legal challenges let alone the transport and accommodation costs.

Not a single soul will ever be sent to Rwanda for "processing ". We would be flying them out on a 15-20 flights a week schedule on current numbers crossing the channel and neither the UK or Rwanda will be able to cope with a fraction of that. It's an abhorrent smokescreen

Seen a few folk say that, but it's interesting that they feel a winning strategy is to announce something abhorrent, get blocked from doing it, then shrug and say, "oh well, we tried".

I worry about their voters more than the politicians themselves. Some of them would likely agree in private that it's a morally disgusting idea, but will support it in public as it's a vote winner where it counts.

Wonder if there are many central London bars where you can get a pint for £3.30.

Draught Beers (parliament.uk)

I reckon I could get in there for a drink.  I’m pretty strange.

What's the reason given for them having a bar, seems completely mental that folk can vote when half jaked on a £13 bottle of wine.

Something stress.....Something something day-job.....

 

The real answer probably lies in their ever increasing detachment from reality tbh

Cant imagine any other work places letting you drink whilst working. Many places won't even allow alcohol on the premises.

Yeah, lowering inhibitions in a workplace absolutely filled with sexual deviants doesn't seem very wise. 

 

But then, what do we know, being the scum that we are.

It would explain a lot. You can't imagine them voting some of the Tory policies through if they were sober.
