Although, what I will say is, our standards have been eroded somewhat due to the utter shite we've had in parliament for a while now. Keir has been good today and, in today's climate, looks as if he's sticking it to the Brexiters and giving them a decent kicking. But when you think back, his performance has been positively tame compared to when Tony Blair went both barrels on his opponents. I think Keir probably has that in him but we need to see the art of giving a verbal battering again.

Remember Tony Blair in the European Parliament unloading on Farage and his ilk back in 2005? We need that back.

According to the No10 source Merkel then went on to say that she intends to hold the UK ransom for ONE MILLION DOLLARS! After which she laughed diabolically, and clucked like a chicken.

That Merkel and her team are refusing to dignify this with a response is both by the by and telling, inasmuch as they are both instinctively and strategically above this "winning wars on the playing fields of Eton" bollocks.

Closer to home, La Barnett looks to be one of the few on the BBC that knows what side her career is buttered. Yes, she is an ingrained Telegraph shill but she can read the tea leaves.

Interesting to note on the Twitters that there's a quite substantial number of leave voters condemning that Merkel image as well...
leave.eu is the provisional wing of the mouth-breathingly stupid. Why anyone would retweet them is beyond me.

Because they're cunts?
From within my echo chamber, largely outraged and apologetic but misguided and daft cunts.

In fairness to Starmer, Blair wasn't hobbled by having Corbyn as a boss.

They won't be gaining many votes from around Anfield way.

They've been made to apologise.


Leave.EU campaign apologises over tweet calling Merkel a ‘kraut’ and invoking world war
https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/p ... 48356.html





I'd question how genuine an apology it is, however, seeing as Piers Morgan (of all people) was called a "snowflake" by Arron Banks for saying it was unacceptable.




*Edit*







Yeah, so not sorry at all.

The 'apology' hasn't gone down well with Mailites:



Leave EU apologises and deletes 'racist' tweeted picture of Angela Merkel that said 'We didn't win two world wars to be pushed around by a Kraut'

Germany was planning the unification of Europe in 1942. Germany is expanding across Europe. So far 27 countries, most of which offer nothing to the economy and 5 more countries in the pipeline. Federal Parliament, single currency, European flag, European anthem, and talks of a European army. Does that ring a bell? Didn't we fight to stop that happening in 1939?

Is this because we are not longer able to have free speech in this country anymore, unless you are a minority group?
