    I'm out of the loop, is GB News the Fox News clone that Piers Morgan, Andrew Neil, Nigel Farage etc were moving towards recently?

    We laugh, but give it 5 years and they'll be moving government policy like the tabloids do.

    Yeah, your'e right - it's no laughing matter...

    Apart from the piss-poor production values, the false prospectus, the constant self-contradiction, advertisers already pulling their adverts...etc...

    Johnson condemns a crowd for hounding a journalist.

    Pretty rich coming from the guy who once conspired to have a journalist's ribs cracked in revenge for investigating his friend's activities.

    I knew GB news would go down well on here

    They clearly have production issues, as was predicted, the sound needs sorting out. There seems to be a delay on some of the voices.

    Surprised to see our former Labour MP on there as a presenter.

    What a coincidence, Boris has a delay on his voice it's roughly 2 weeks.

    Fell for the classic Porky's line. Apparently someone called Mike Oxlong also called in. Come on, own up - which of you was it?

    Your palms are holding her neck and thumbs are at her ears regulating the speed of her head as she swallows and then sucks up your machinery. She is topping up your engine oil for the cross-country coming up. Your RPM is hitting a new high. To wait any longer would be to lose prime time... She picks up a Bugatti's momentum. You want her more at a Volkswagen's steady trot. Squeeze the maximum mileage out of your gallon of gas. But she's eating up the road with all cylinders blazing.

    I remember when folk used to send stuff like this to Wogan all the time. It had to be good to catch old Tel out though.

    This really isn’t a good look, is it?

    „I 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 socialism“

    „Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.”

    All of them are totally fucking hopeless, promoted not on ability but on their willingness to sacrifice themselves on the Brexit altar in return for a spell in high office. (See also: Lynn Truss).

    They may still find favour with the poundshop Tories, but history will not view kindly the politicians who so swiftly changed their opinions to feed their own greed for power. As a country, however, we have the government we deserve, because too many people voted on meaningless and untruthful three-word slogans.

    Remember what Brian said about a chairman if he employed a manager that was useless?

    So - the question is, for me...if Boris though Hancock was useless - why didn't he replace him in the Cabinet? Does Hancock have some dirt on the Boris? Does this start a domino effect?

    The Tories have always stabbed each other in the back. I think give it time and this could end up in a mass brawl. Sadly it won't make much difference to the likes of us though, apart from a bit of entertainment as the labour party will still be useless.

    Yes, by jingo, imagine how fucked up the U.K. would be under all that chaos with Ed Milliband or Comrade Corbyn!

    The average bloke or woman in the street is never going to vote for the likes of Corbyn. I spoke to someone yesterday and their parting words were, ,"we love Boris" . Sad yes. But that's the way it is, because the vast majority of people really aren't that interested in politics. They might have a bit of a grumble if something affects them directly, but most of the time they are well past caring.

    Imagine how different the world would be today if David Milliband was appoint leader over Ed. I think the UK would have been a much different place.

    I think Cameron would still have won the 2015 election - pledging the EU referendum was the game-changer for the Tories.

    Or if And Burnham or Alan Johnson was made leader, but they're far too sensible for Labour

    Not sure a change of leader would do it. A clear out of the loon bags further down the line is needed as well. Maybe even a whole new labour party and leave the loons to it.

    Only in respect of staving-off defections to the kippers though; it wouldn’t really have affected Labour that much?
