I actually find the obsequious defence of Cummings more offensive than his actual misdemeanour. They've obviously been told he's not going anywhere and to protect him at all costs or they won't have a job, absolutely f***ing disgusting that the AG has got involved mind.
Needless to say, the lazy, cowardly shithouse de Pfeffel is nowhere to be seen, but he doesn't really do weekends. Or crises for that matter.

They really are a the worst government imaginable.

Massively so.

He made an error, it happens even if he is a weird little f***er. Apologise and move on. Instead we’ve turned into Great Banana.

Insinuating people don’t care for their kids and/or are too stupid to show common sense and to break the rules if needed is absolutely wild too.

One thing I'd like to see is Starmer (and the LP) come up with a decent fightback to the "don't politicise" and "watch your tone" kind of angles the Tories are relentlessly pushing to get out of s***. Starmer f***ed it last week when given the chance imo but they need a unified response to this bullshit because the oxygen theives and boomers are falling for it left, right and centre.
So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name

What did he say that f***ed it? Been fairly impressed by him so far.

The stuff I keep seeing is that the ‘MSM’ are too negative. FFS, the news has hardly been sunshine and rainbows in my lifetime. Plus there are a lot of negative stories and mistakes being made. So they’re going to be reported on.

Deep down, I think tory voters know they have no comeback to this s***. So they opt for the ‘stop being negative’, ‘don’t use this for political point scoring’ and ‘they are doing the best they can.’

f***ed it in the sense he let johnson away with it...johnson pulled him for being "negative" iirc and starmer stumbled a bit, got a word wrong, then kind of said "30k deaths is negative so i will keep asking questions or some such"

the opportunity was there to attack him and he didn't take it and that's my fear, labour playing the game atm

common sense you say PM?  was it common sense you arrogantly bragged about shaking hands with CV19 patients and then as a result increased the burden on the NHS and nearly died...is that the kind of common sense you're on about?
negative you say PM?  do you consider the highest death toll in europe a positive PM?

the open goals are there to be scored but we're passing the ball around the 6 yard box like a wenger team post henry

I think if you're wanting Starmer to start raging at Johnson all guns blazing it's not going to happen, it's just not his style.

He's clearly working a longer term strategy though, might prove effective, maybe not, think we've just got to let it play out. Tony Blair talks about how in PMQ's it's the undecided voters and the potential swing votes you're actually playing for, not just the easy cheers from your own side, think that's more the way he's going.

Starmer performance has been very good so far IMO.

f***ing Cummings - arrogant c***. It's insane how the Tories on twitter are defending it - so embarrassing.

open goals are open goals though surely?  same accusation thrown at corbyn, if there's a chance to hit him with a hammer blow then f***ing take it...shouldn't change the overall strategy one bit

I think Starmer has been wary of trying to look like he's simply scoring political points which will turn people off at these early stages. I've been impressed with him thus far, and I imagine he's studying everything connected to the Cummings case before he says anything.....as you would imagine a man of his legal training would do.

we live in an age of populism, you've got people phoning up radio stations now defending cummings...people cummings would throw in a f***ing ditch in a heartbeat

the long game is great but not if you're the only one playing it (imo)

imo he's f***ing scared of the chelp, scared of them hitting with the "you're politicising it" s**** at the same time tory mps are politicising absolutely everything as HARD LEFT etc.

he'll lose with this s*** like, make no mistake about it

Disagree. I think if he tries to go all guns blazing and gets accused more and more of this political point scoring. Then it is going to turn more people off.

Plenty of people have had enough of the shouty, slogan s**** that we’ve had to endure for god knows how long. He is never going to win over the staunch Brexit, right wing tory types who lap all that s**** up. So I’m glad he is going for a more measured approach to try and conquer the middle ground.

I'm still unnerved by the fact this has got the utterly vile Julia Hartley-Brewer worked up. Thought she'd just brush it off and blame Labour/the left, as per.
Had a few dances off her when I've been in Blue velvet with friends. She's one of the ones who will push her fanny in your face, usually I like that but hers smells f***ing rotten. Only had dances off her because she agreed to take less money for the dances when me and my mate said we were skint.

Reading her tweet its because unlike a hard Brexit or rampant austerity this directly affected her. Makes a hell of a difference.
