But no, because outside Gammonia people realise that there's more to government and politics than just Brexit. And they've seen just how useless kippers are at parish council level, and aren't going to let them fuck things up nationally.

Windrush is just the beginning. The plight of EU citizens is a looming scandal. It surprises me why the media didn't pick it up properly, yet. Then, there is a question of May who made over 40000 changes to immigration rules

Essentially "Britain" (to coin an entity) likes the idea of tough immigration rules but is incredibly squeamish about them actually being enforced.

Stewart Lee had a similar rant about this on Sunday:
No, it wasn’t the dinner lady and the nice black family from the electrical shop who had to go. It was the other foreigners. The bad ones, who scrounge and steal and are lazy. Not the ones that were like people you knew, harmless tropical fish caught in a dragnet sweeping for sharks. It’s the anonymous parade of frightening brown faces on that Vote Leave poster. They’re the bad ones.

What's with all the ridiculous, legs apart stance that the Tories seem to affect for photos? Javid is the latest one to do the pose. Reminds me of Prince George in the episode of Blackadder III which featured Kenneth Connor.

More seriously, he has a picture of Thatchcunt on his office wall and thinks she is the greatest ever PM.

Shit.

There should be be, but at present there isn't. I saw a reference somewhere yesterday to PMQs on Wednesday effectively being the end of the Parliamentary week. Little or no legislation is going through the Commons. Not even Brexit related laws for fear of them being voted down.

Apparently, this moronic trend is called "power posing".
Advocates of power posing claim it can boost testosterone and adrenaline levels - and help establish your authority over colleagues, particularly among women executives who, they say, often have more submissive body language than their male colleagues.

It probably works in a busy environment with a lot of other people. When you're stood on your own on a stage / in front of a building it just makes you look like a lunatic.

To me it says "Kick my bollocks. Up to my shoulder blades."
