David Cameron won no majority, he just won a crappy electoral system.
Anyone could have told you that Brexit would be a rolling disaster for the UK. At least we’ve got Chilcot to obsess over now. It’s not about taking anything for granted, it’s about not whipping up the dumb plebs into a frenzy about a pointless advisory referendum, unleashing the xenophobic racist beast and then having the two parties collapse due to internal fighting, David Cameron being a usual idiot and running away rather than sticking to his promises, the right-wing elements of the Labour party turning on Corbyn (which appears to be backfiring–good) and Jesus. Corbyn has a huge groundswell of support as the sole voice against the neoliberal consensus in the main 3 parties, and I believe has presided over the biggest growth in Labour party membership. Corbyn isn’t to blame for the Labour implosion–Blairites are (and Blair’s PR firm was working with the media to architect a lot of this).
I haven’t got around to reading about Chilcot yet. Just read some headlines. But you know, I could have told you most of what would happen as a result of this illegal invasion back in 2003-4.
It’s all bullshit. Anyway, we’re not leaving the EU. Didn’t you see what backstabber Gove was talking about the other day? Getting trade deals with Yurp? God help us all. If the thick plebs want to be independent and live in a Britain untarnished by foreigners, the first thing they need to do is form a nice mob and storm Westminster.
Did I mention I met a Czech British immigrant the other week? He’s 70. Moved to the UK after WWII. I thought he would have an interesting perspective. Turned out that he’s the “right” sort of immigrant and it’s those “effing p***is” who ruined it all.
I stopped talking to him after that. That’s the level of discourse I’ve found along with “take Britain back!” (from what, you moron?).
All in all, you really need to stop reading the Telegraph and stop chortling at antics. It’s a shitrag. Go and read some proper news sources and realize that this is all IRL house of cards. No next PM is a good candidate. It says a lot when I wish Call me Dave would stay on. May is one of our worst home secretaries ever, the less said about Blondie the better, Gove, Fox and the others… who?
