Huge Tory Win...
I reckon Boris was the best of the goods on offer. He's got charisma, unlike most of the the rest, and a 'let's get things moving' air about him, which was needed to get us out of the stagnant Brexit situation. And despite accusations of him being a buffoon, I think he's very astute and not afraid to cut through barbed wire. Time will tell, obviously, but I think he's the right man for the job.
Corbyn - a characterless terrorist-friendly, Marxist apologist with very dangerous views on our country's security. Even his own party members consider him a national threat. 🤒 I can't understand how he was voted as party leader in the first place, going by his track record.
Swinson - flying in the face of the Brexit referendum on a messiahistic mission to get Article 50 revoked. So popular that she even lost her own seat (and job). 🥀
None of the other parties, SNP excepted, had the slightest chance of getting anywhere important. Good ol' Nigel played a vital part in not contesting Conservative-held seats but who's to say if it helped...
Tonight's wine tastes very good. 🍾
”If Parliament opposes the No Deal exit 31st October, the Establishment (incl. the BBC) will continue to force it all on to a General Election and Boris will be backed by Nigel's Brexit Party, all the undemocratic shite MPs will be kicked out of parliament, and Boris's Conservative Party will rule supreme with a huge majority; and Brexit will be a fact.” From Forum post, July 2019.
I’m in agreement with Steve on this. Living in a modern democracy, the EU-servile cannot now treat a huge consensus of British opinion, the whole-UK electorate, with contempt any more. A majority of the British people have spoken again, using their own style of analysing the pros and cons and come to a decision, and, for a second time, it needs to be honoured.
Boris Johnson, a human, fair, and wise man of good character and a skilled orator, continuing as prime minister, now with a working majority in parliament with control of the legislation at last, will be a great leader, will be able to realise his many important policies, and will make the UK a great Nation again, bringing back our self-respect and pride, and help us take our proper place in the world as befitting our long struggle in the long history of becoming civilised, especially politically.
New predictions? Scotland, with that dangerous National Front-hyping woman, Sturgeon in charge, obsessed with trying to glorify her name in Scottish history, on not being granted Indy2 by the British government, will apply to the High Courts for permission. But new British legislation will stipulate the required majority, and conditions, for such a suicidal, disastrous breakaway from part of the unified UK, a figure the wise Scottish folk, not enhancing political careers themselves, will not agree, or want to aspire to. After several polls conducted by the SNP showing insufficient interest in leaving the UK, mad visions of independence will be dropped, and the whole of the UK, including N. Ireland after the trade deal, will live on in happy harmony and unity?
It was clearly meant in humour, Jolen. 😇 Nothing there to causing tensions.
I don't know why people get offended so easily these days; they seem to get riled over things online that they wouldn't be bothered about in normal 'human interface' situations. I suppose it's easy to hide behind a keyboard.
I think you're right. But I can understand how it is more difficult to determine nuances without a 'face-to-face' if you will. I try to ask if I'm unsure rather than to assume, but I've had misunderstandings many times too. Generally with me, if you have to ask if I meant to be mean to you, then I wasn't being mean. I'm very clear when I'm pissed off and not the least bit bashful about expressing it loudly. lol
We'll all get what was voted for. Some of us won't deserve it.
Its not a Conservative government. It's a right wing one with a badge.
I have no sympathy for the traditional Labour voters who chose Conservative.
I have no sympathy for this government that thinks it can legislate in London about something that effects Europe.
Never forget we did this to ourselves. It was a choice.
We'd reached peak ignorance before the election.
David Cameron is to blame. Plain and simple. Everyone after him was just a clown with a smile on their face and tears in their heart.
Brexit was about Britain taking back control....
Scotland are gone.
Ireland will unite.
And the rest will have to accept that their is no Empire or doodlebugs anymore.
Happy hunting guys!
