A lot of focus on the difference in quality between Starmer and Johnson. There are other portfolios where the intelligence and talent level between the minister and shadow is a gaping chasm.
If the Tories were a cricket team, the tail would start at about 5, with amateur captain Bozo coming in at 8 and not bowling.

I'm amazed to see Dorries is senior in the DHSC to Jo Churchill, who is relatively sane.

Churchill is a filthy Remain traitor enemy of the people surrender monkey. Dorries is right up Boris' Brexit Arse.

Beats competence every time.

Both parties have undergone a serious schism:

The Tories engineered Brexit as a wedge to split Labour.
It split Labour from some of their traditional support, but the parliamentary party remained largely united.
A case could be made that Labour's leader did more to alienate the traditional support than Brexit.
Labour's defeat then caused the schism leading to the Starmer / Corbyn split.

Brexit split the Tories as their ultras demanded a more and more extreme interpretation.
Johnson used this to purge the moderate elements from the parliamentary party.

Viewing the current situation, it looks as through the Tories jettisoned their competent half, while Labour is in the process of shedding mostly incompetents.

As Gove and Cummings pore over the board they must be reflectcing on another 3D chess failure.

Mercer sent out a tweet last Friday afternoon at just after 5 saying how he had enjoyed a run after a tough week at work. Given that he lives over 3 hours away from London he had clearly not had too tough a week if he had got home from London and been running all before 5 on a Friday afternoon.

A Trump win will put some wind in the sails of the Tory Brexit loons but the more thoughtful MPs, especially in agricultural regions are going to be fearful. Trump doesn't believe in common endeavour but 'one guy wins and the other schmuck loses.' We're more likely to have a Kamikaze conclusion to Brexit and Johnson signing anything Trump puts in front of him. Looks folks I'm at the front of the line.

Huge swathes of this country voted for a government they must have known deep down would shaft them, but they didn't care. They voted and still support Leave despite knowing they'll be worse off. They'll welcome Trump II. And it's all for the same reason - owning the libs. It's just a game to them, and the hit they take in their pocket is the price of playing it.

They've a roof and four walls, the supermarket's open, and their internet connection's OK.

As long as there's someone they feel they can bully or who is getting it worse, they're fine.

No, they genuinely believe they'll be better off; even more so when they can send the wogs home and hang people again.

I don't get this "Trump win is good for Britain".
Have they looked at anybody who has done a deal with Trump.
* Attended his university.
* Donated to or worked with his "cheridee".
* Chewed their way through one of his steaks.

There's the dealer and the mark - and these guys are first in line to be the mark.
