Ignore the tweet and flag nonsense, couldn't give a s***, but state of that bus.  It's the sort of thing that works for the likes of UKIP/Brexit Party but it'll be just another nail in the coffin for CUKTIG.  Turning out rather beautifully for the ego-driven fuckcunts. 
You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.
We ourselves are responsible for our own happiness and misery. We create our own Heaven. We create our own Hell. We are the architects of our own fate.
Student says " I am very discouraged. What should I do?" Master says, "encourage others."
We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.
It takes a wise man to learn from his mistakes, but an even wiser man to learn from others.
This is what should be done. By one who is skilled in goodness, and who knows the path of peace: Let them be able and upright, straightforward and gentle in speech. Humble and not conceited, contented and easily satisfied. Unburdened with duties and frugal in their ways. Peaceful and calm, and wise and skillful, not proud and demanding in nature. Let them not do the slightest thing that the wise would later reprove.

Its not upside down is it ? Looks sideways to me.
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.

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.

I was a pure creep when I was a kid tbf. Used to spunk in deoderant can lids too

You know the Chomsky quote about privatisation, defund something so it doesnt work, people get angry and want something done , do something by privatising. Grayling is the exact opposite, throw money at it, make the private sector look so bad that people get angry, renationalise.

Grayling is the anti-chomsky.

The membership love him, the MPs largely despise him. He'd have a chance under the Labour model, but the Tory members only get balloted when they are down to two members (at least that's what I recall from May's unopposed appointment, it may have changed)

In their pursuit of true democracy, the Tories are going to have a leadership contest that involves 150,000 Tory party members choosing the UK Prime Minister.

Didn't he come out as the worst option in some YouGov polling, between him, Javid and a few others?  It could even have been he was the best of the bunch, but I'm sure it was still seen as nowhere near good enough and actually worse than May having another bash. :lol:

Possibly and probably. He's easily the most divisive but with a bit of PR and what have you behind you in a GE that can all change. Easily the most populist of them all which will help.

Aye, can't argue with that.  He also seems to have the Bannon support network too.  Would be a horrible contest with him, but if the Brexit Party was still kicking come a GE, then it could be that that puts Labour through.

If you look at current polling, the only way the Tories are going to get anywhere in a GE is if they go full Brexit.

Current polling gives Remain a 10 point lead though? They were basically full Brexit in 2017 and fell short.

I wouldn't put it past them. Then after 5 years more of their destructive policies, they'll win the next election by promising to take us back.
