This is a great speech.

Edit: also the next one

Couldn’t make it through the first due to the servile grovelling at the beginning of the speech.

The second one was quite watchable though and it did have its moments.

Tbh for as much as they piss and moan about the UK and the English in particular, Corbyn and co should be very thankful that their countrymen have tolerated their treachery and bullshit, and that far from finding themselves hanging from lampposts as they so richly deserve, they have instead only been required to take a light ribbing from their fellow clowns in the big top.

Fuckwits.

Edit : I will however admit to thoroughly enjoying Norman Lamonts Brexit related speech in the Lords. Very entertaining.

Surely it’s a parody?
The majority of the even the most hard-core remainers have already given up now, it's only the craziest of the crazies who are still fighting on. Still having FBPE in your twitter name at this point is like a woman jilted at the alter still wearing her wedding dress a week later, you know that something has broken in the head.

Speaking of hardcore remainers and their descent into madness, this one (one of those prominent QCs who were always trying to stop brexit) apparently decided to take out his anger and frustration on a poor fox he caught in his garden on Boxing Day by bludgeoning it to death with a baseball bat:


The prominent remain-supporting lawyer Jolyon Maugham QC has announced on Twitter that he clubbed a fox to death on Boxing Day morning, while wearing his wife’s satin kimono and nursing a hangover.

“Already this morning I have killed a fox with a baseball bat,” the barrister tweeted just after 8am. “How’s your Boxing Day going?”

Maugham, 48, whose Good Law Project has brought a number of legal challenges to Brexit, told followers that he had killed the animal after it became trapped while trying to get inside a hen house in his back garden in central London.

On a quiet Boxing Day morning, his account rapidly drew huge interest on Twitter, including the attention of the RSPCA, which urged anyone with first-hand knowledge of the incident to report it.
He could be facing a £5k fine and/or 6 months in prison :messenger_tears_of_joy:

Hundreds of people got gongs and yet all the sad & bitter lefties can do is whine about one indivdual.

Gee, maybe if you'd put forward a Labour leader that was fit for office, you wouldn't now be suffering such angst over something so meaningless.

Labour putting forward their stooges when they are in power is also bad. Why can’t people see beyond party lines when it comes to this stuff?

To be fair after the last election, this kind of bullshit is the only poltical artilliary Labour has.

She's too special to be bisexual obviously (I suspect because in the LGBT community the Bs aren't really trusted).

Lol, people like her live in their own self-absorbed bubbles.
And they say she's a potential leadership candidate.

So the most well-known aspects of this candidate's profile is their sexual identity and that they assaulted their ex-boyfriend?

U.K. Brexit Bill Clears House of Commons After Year of Gridlock

Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Brexit legislation cleared its final hurdle in the House of Commons, putting an end to the parliamentary gridlock that cost his predecessor Theresa May her job.

Members of Parliament voted 330 to 231 in favor of the Withdrawal Agreement Bill, which now passes to the upper House of Lords. Johnson wants the measures passed into law before the end of the month so the U.K. can leave the European Union on Jan. 31 and he can deliver on his election campaign promise to “get Brexit done.”

They're doing it! Let's see if they can get it before February rolls around.

We're also getting closer to Northern Ireland having a government again after 3 years without one. Could be up and running tomorrow it seems. Shit is getting done. For the first time in ages I am actually optimistic about the UK's future. Boris is the man.
