Whilst we've got the Boris thread it's sometimes worth pointing out everyone in politics is a twat.....

Yes, I can't argue with that.


Despite not having any party/politician to be squeaky clean, I would always opt towards Labour based on who I am and what my life has been. I have always found Tories to be selfish and for the rich, nothing more, nothing less. Well, that was until Boris came into town with his 'jobs for the boys' school of life and his bigoted views. Now he's turned our country into some from the Carry On movies.

One thing I will never do is waste a vote on a third party.

In fairness to Jeremy Corbyn, the dinner was a gathering after the memorial for the Occupy Wall Street organiser David Graeber, a close friend of Jeremy Corbyn's. The Covid-19 rules at the time stated up to 30 people could attend a funeral and a gathering of attendees afterwards is included in this. Corbyn apologised for not adhering to social distancing but when there is a bereaved widow there it would be difficult not to be close to her when she is grieving because you have to stay 2 metres apart. I'm not saying he was correct but I think his case is very different to that of Margaret Ferrier.

Our (awful) politicians here in Northern Ireland have finally made some decisions today regarding our Covid situation.

These include:

Closing schools for 2 weeks over Halloween instead of a week.
All hospitality to close, only serving takeaways
And my personal favourite - nowhere to sell alcohol after 8pm. I'm not sure what that has to do with anything. Cue massive surge to Tescos for the wine.

It's to stop spontaneous house parties after closing pubs.

The determined and premeditated lot will just by booze during the day, but many folks will normally arrange these things last minute. If you can't buy booze you can't get going really. Probably also because you're run by a bunch of puritanical medieval Christian loonies though...

Normally I would defend my country but in this instance, you are absolutely right. Apparently if you 'wear mixed cottons', you're also going to Hell.

I’m sick of Boris thinking that England in itself is the UK. His constant ignoring of the rest of the home nations make me wish even more than NI could break free of the ‘mainland’. He’s wanting to lockdown England but leaving NI citizens free to travel there.

Worst PM of recent times.

I think the Belarus is closer to the US right now than the UK. Even though Dominic Cooper is Stephen Miller.

This is exactly how you keep up a two party system. I mean, I get it, but still. It's just keeping Status Quo.

I know this isn't about other parties... but my reading list on 'Guardian' online today:

Rishi Sunak - UK chancellor fails to declare wife's huge wealth in India / Exclusive: Akshata Murty, Sunak’s wife, holds multimillion-pound portfolio making her richer than the Queen

a few days ago:
PM's defence of Priti Patel sparked Home Office fury, union says / Civil servants angry at ‘double standards applied to home secretary over bullying report’

Alex Allen, a veteran civil servant quit over Johnson's decision to keep the bully at his side.

Was there ever a time when a British government included so many ignorants and assholes or ignorant assholes as today?
