Eh?

Toe-curlingly bad performers and insignificants were punted up as loyalists, while serious heavyweights Keir Starmer and Emily Thornberry might as well have been shut in Johnson’s freezer.

If Ems is a heavyweight is Labour’s loss all that much of a surprise?

  1. “The nightmare has happened. The worst of men is elected prime minister. The hardest of times lie ahead. Unfit in every way for any kind of office, Boris Johnson takes up the reins of absolute power bestowed on any leader with such a majority.”

    The Wailing! The Gnashing of the Teeth! The Lamenting of the …. etc….

    How much butthurt can you get?… 😉

  2. Starmer is the fuckwit who persuaded Jizz to piss on his own voters. A heavyweight fuckwit perhaps. As I said before–if Jizz had kept faith with Brexit he might have won–God forbid.

  3. I did briefly see Owen Jones on TV last night. Did he ask why no one was talking about Saudi Arabia?

    I also studiously avoided Sky’s coverage as they threatened us with odious toad John Bercow.

  4. Should that “Ems” be ‘Emsh’?

    Nugee, Nugee

    A little drinky.

    But enough of this malarkey. Does she drink or is it just an irresistible line of mockery?

  5. ‘Corbyn is not an amoral man. He can never tell a lie: pretending to watch the Queen’s Christmas message in the morning showed he’s not used to fibbing.’

    So Corby is a terrible politician Polly because he cannot tell a lie. Reminds me of Stalin’s reaction to Ribbentrop’s proposed communique about the Nazi/Soviet pact, ‘We cannot say that. It tells the truth all too plainly.’

  6. Toynbee even more deranged than normal. She was desperate to have this terrorist sympathiser elected yesterday; today she thinks he is awful.

    Really, really awful people.

  7. The worst of men is elected prime minister.

    No. That was the people Toynbee campaigned for.

    The hardest of times lie ahead.

    Balls.

    Unfit in every way for any kind of office

    Balls. You don’t get to decide that, whatever your Patrician snobbery believes. We do, and we did.

    Boris Johnson takes up the reins of absolute power bestowed on any leader with such a majority.

    The same “absolute power” (lol) enjoyed by any former Prime Minister with a majority, e.g. Brown, Blair. Less absolute, actually, as he has a Civil Service and Judiciary stuffed with Socialists and Progressives who oppose him.

  8. serious heavyweights Keir Starmer and Emily Thornberry

    Even this Labour leadership understood that in an election where their traditional vote was either leaving them or uneasy, sticking Emily Fucking Thornberry anywhere near a TV camera would have been a catastrophe.

  9. The description of the manifesto as ‘Magnificent’ is what does it for me! I am annoyed now in retrospect that Thatcher closed so many mental hospitals – they’d be filled with Corbynites today based on what I am reading on social media.

  10. ‘Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said that with his House of Commons majority, he will deliver Brexit by January 31st, 2020.’

    I’ll believe it when I see it. He has lied before – 31 October – so there is no reason to believe him now. After 3.5 years of disappointment, you cannot believe ANY politician, including BoJo. Only ACTION counts now.

    And will it be Brexit, or horrendous New Deal with EU?

    On the plus side January 31st, 2020 is coming up real quick, so we’ll find out real soon!

    Celebrate today, then get back to work pounding politicians to do No Deal Brexit. You have won a battle, but the war still rages.

  11. “The manifesto was essentially magnificent.” She’s a Bourbon. Finish the joke yourselves.

    I’m going to polish off a can of red soup for lunch. Heh, heh.

    He’s already got the Withdrawal Agreement so al he has to do is pass it and that’s it we’re out on 31st Jan. After that revoking A50 doesn’t work and we’d have to apply to rejoin.

    The next phase, which in theory has to be completed by the end of 2020, is to agree a trade deal or other working relationships. Its those negotiations that could see is going anywhere from a full Customs Union to WTO terms. Any agreement to extend that period has to be in place by the end of June.

    There really isn’t much wiggle room now.

    I’ve just put this article from April this year up on the Polly thread on ConTel, it might as well go here as well:

    Labour needn’t worry: in its northern heartlands, Brexiters are not the only voices

    The party is drawing up its European manifesto. From what I’ve seen, it won’t suffer a backlash by pledging a confirmatory vote

  14. “If Ems is a heavyweight is Labour’s loss all that much of a surprise?”

    Labour are basically fucked. It’s their membership. Labour have historically been a mix of your working classes and your intellectuals and even after the pits closed and steelworking jobs declined, you still had old guys supporting Labour. And most of those were sensible people who wanted to win and do things. The likes of Blunkett and Straw weren’t born rich. They understood poor people.

    The Labour membership is now mostly cranks. Most of them would oppose a trade deal with Israel, nearly half think terror attacks are because of UK foreign policy, and even in July thought Corbyn was doing a good job. Starmer is about the most sensible choice they have and I wouldn’t be at all surprised if they screw it up and vote for Rayner.

    Keir Starmer’s face is right at the bottom of the Uncanny Valley. He looks like every ponced-up middle management type you’ve ever met. Gives me the screaming heebie-jeebies.

  16. Bloke in North Dorset

    Starmer is about the most sensible choice they have and I wouldn’t be at all surprised if they screw it up and vote for Rayner.

    As someone said on Twitter – Labour will need to pick a woman, maybe Trans, and ideally from the BAME community.

    Starmer will win and then just self identify as above.

    That said, from what I’ve seen there is absolutely zero self awareness in about what happened amongst the hard left. Their blaming all and sundry except Corbyn, their Brexit position and their suicide note manifesto. Some of them still seem to think that the way forward is to keep referring to those who voted as scum and traitors, at best. This is a good thread:

    Things The Online Left Have Blamed For Their Worst Defeat Since 1935, A Thread

  17. Gamecock–You are way off base mate. Yes polipigs are inherently untrustworthy. But Bojo has had a demo of what happens to people who take it a fuck-with too far.

    He is hardly going to start his new govt with a “HO-HO-HO Fuck you Voters” is he? Show everybody it was a mistake voting for him less than 6 weeks after his govt starts?

    Sorry I don’t think so.

    Now he might try some “level playing field” shenanegins with the FTA. But we can fight that. Against Jizz and his 4 mill new fake voters we would have lost everything.

    Yes, Nugee is drinky, drinky; look at her eyes on BBC QT

    …sticking Dianne Abbottamus anywhere near a TV camera would have been a catastrophe

    Instead Labour rolled out the village idiots: Laura Pidcock, Dawn Butler, Angela Raynor and Barry Gardiner

    Note: the three women are touted as Labour’s next loser leader along with rat-face Long-Bailey

  19. Burgon is launching a leadership bid, it seems. He makes Corbyn look like an intellectual heavyweight, but at least he doesn’t have a mountain of evidence proving him an anti-Semitic supporter of terrorist groups.

  20. Bloke in North Dorset

    Someone on Twitter said that lawyers were pleased that Burgon had kept his seat, otherwise he might have returned to the legal profession.

    I see Corbyn’s saying he won’t resign until a successor has been found. Presumably that means someone approved by the hard left with similar views to his. Looks like Boris is going to be one of the luckiest Tory PMs on record.

  21. On 13 December 2019, Mr Ecks says:

    “Gamecock–You are way off base mate.”

    Referendum 23 June 2016.

    Mr Ecks, learn to realize when you are being fvcked.
