    From the Cabinet, or the Tory party as a whole?

    If it’s the former, I wouldn’t expect any more. Rudd was an anomaly in that she was in a position she was actually qualified to do, rather than one that Boris has shoehorned someone into purely to get more Brexit credentials onboard (see Patel, Javhd, Raab, Eric...), the latter? Yeah, expect more.

    Either Congo. I was just looking at the numbers left and had it not been for labour losing chukka etc the two main parties are getting closer. I know it won’t happen but suppose so many Tories resigned labour became the biggest party would they naturally become the government?

    What a great idea. I've phoned my mother and told her to expect an Albanian in the post.

    The bastards have forced Bercow out. He was great entertainment, kept the unruly spoilt brats in check.

    There are currently 288 Tories who retain the whip not even remotely enough to get anything through parliament. They are currently being run by the ERG - surely there are a significant proportion of the 288 who are going to stop obeying the whip and grow a pair? But then again they are Tories and leopards never change their spots

    Tories working with Lib Dems to win SNP seats. The Lib Dems really are the worst, amazing what they'll do for a few pound notes.

    I was out in Notingham Friday night for my bosses leaving drinks.

    After a few shandies, someone starting talking politics and how Boris was sorting the country out and how smart he has played it since getting in number 10. Also how Corbyn is a scumbag fo not wanting an election now after asking for one over the last 2 years. I don't know whether it was the beer but there were plenty of nodding heads which I find very fucking frightening. On top of that there seems to be a real desire for a no deal brexit by some folk.

    I kept out of it because I don't like mixing politics with work, especially after a beer, but I'm really fucking worried about how oblivious people are to what's been going off of late.

    It is startling. I work in the public service job. We are reliant on an EU port, EU trade for our job and the majority voted for leave. We also have had pay freeze, cuts in over time pay, pension increases / changes, NI increases, many terms slashed, colleagues made redundant yet many still talk of Boris fondly despite his party unleashing all that. One bloke I work with lost his house during the early 90’s (while his kids were young) because he was made redundant. Then he lost his job again after cuts in 2013 so ended up surplus. He was so anti Tory it was unbelievable but now because of Brexit he’s adamant he’s voting Tory. Brexit has taken over his life, he goes on and on about it, he’s obsessed. Maybe he’s going for a hat trick of redundancies.

    Itís a good job he didnít make Boris angry.

    He wouldnít like him when heís angry...

    ĄI believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialismď

    Lib Dems showing says having a clear policy works?

    https://metro.co.uk/2019/09/19/lib-d...poll-10774248/

    Meanwhile, worst Labour party ever? Machiavellian politics and lack of tolerance of different points of view. It sounds like they are trying to abolish the post of deputy leader because they dont like the deputy leader. Stalin would be proud.

    They are trying to cause a distraction to stop Corbyn being compelled to adopt a full on remain position. Tom Watson and the role of Deputy Leader is collateral damage.

    Get rid of Watson and they are buried, sit on the fence and they are buried. Would be hilarious to see them as a minority party in a coalition and steptoe can scuttle back to the back benches where he belongs.

    Jeremy Corbyn has just delivered a superb emotive speech at the Labour conference.

    No doubt the Tory press will savage him anyway, but a lot of what he said made serious sense.

    I am no Corbyn fan, but I also thought it was an excellent speech where he spoke a lot of sense.

    I genuinely think he wants to do the 'right' thing, but I just don't have that confidence in him actually delivering it. Maybe I have been programmed by years of Tory propaganda in the press thinking we can't have better, I dunno but it has gave me food for thought on any potential GE.
