Is it even worth the hassle? Voters aren't really arsed and it's way easier just to blame Labour, foreigners, the staff and the inefficiencies of a socialist system.

Focus future spending at services in proud Blue areas and jobs a goodun.

Tell people something's s***, make sure it's s*** then an easy ride to privatise and sell it your mates to make a quick fortune.

Bullshitters misrepresent themselves to their audience not as liars do, that is, by deliberately making false claims about what is true. In fact, bullshit need not be untrue at all.

Rather, bullshitters seek to convey a certain impression of themselves without being concerned about whether anything at all is true. They quietly change the rules governing their end of the conversation so that claims about truth and falsity are irrelevant.

Has anyone heard any journalists anywhere asking Johnson about the Russian Interference report he was reluctant to publish before the election?
Seeing as they receive half of their income from Russians, just saying...

Dan Walker asked it yesterday on the BBC Breakfast interview. Johnson bluffed some vague answer of a certain number of weeks.

I didn't see the interview but did see Dan Walker defend himself on Twitter as someone else insinuated that Walker on asked fluff questions like "are you going Vegan for January?"

I am guessing Dan Walker did ask more pressing questions but twitter warriors were pulling out certain parts to suit their narrative??

Matt Hancock's come up with a brilliant idea to stop the NHS missing their waiting time targets: scrap the targets. :thup:

He would never had got near the mayor's office if he'd been up against someone less detestable than Livingstone.

London was never a better place to be than when Ken was Mayor.

Magic.

I still think Johnson would have come unstuck against a Labour candidate who was a less divisive figure, he got very lucky.

There was nothing lucky about it. The Evening Standard was on his case, as was City A.M. [in particular] and the Metro.

According to media reports, Eddie Howe could be brought in to manage Bournemouth A & E by Hancock as he’s shown what a great job he can do with limited but proper English resources.

Not to worry, once Hancock gets rid of targets and Gove fiddles about with FoI, I don't any of today's journalists will get digging, not when there's another Strictly or other such crap round the corner.

"  By means of ever more effective methods of mind-manipulation, the democracies will change their nature; the quaint old forms -- elections, parliaments, Supreme Courts and all the rest -- will remain. The underlying substance will be a new kind of non-violent totalitarianism. All the traditional names, all the hallowed slogans will remain exactly what they were in the good old days. Democracy and freedom will be the theme of every broadcast and editorial [...]. Meanwhile the ruling oligarchy and its highly trained elite of soldiers, policemen, thought-manufacturers and mind-manipulators will quietly run the show as they see fit. "

All the momentum lot care about is controlling the party. Obviously winning elections isn't a priority.

Surely no one who votes Nandy or Phillips as first choice is going to go RLB?

He's the best candidate by far, but it's going to look a bit s*** when the only man wins.

Aye rights marra. You'll be crawling back come election day.

Why is it the responsibility of the more left-leaning labourites to vote against their beliefs anyway? It appears the majority of labour members want a socialist option, so perhaps the boring centrist types should be falling in line. Or finding themselves a viable alternative party :yao:

If they wanted a socialist option who could get elected, they'd vote for Starmer. It appears to be more important to vote for who St Jeremy wants them to.
