Does that help if it’s replaced by the Brexit Party?

They’d be mad not to work with Nigel and the gang. Real English parties and values for real English voters. Votes will roll in if they guarantee to make life hell for the scum in the socialist public sector, elitist remoaners and anyone under the age of 25.

:iamatwat:
Making mistakes is how you learn.
Every generation must fight the same battles again and again and again. There is no final victory, and there is no final defeat, and so a little bit of history may help.
“What power have you got? Where did you get it from? In whose interests do you exercise it? To whom are you accountable? And how can we get rid of you?” If you cannot get rid of the people who govern you, you do not live in a democratic system.
That is why no one with power likes democracy and that is why every generation must struggle to win it and keep it – including you and me, here and now.

Does anyone in the UK take John Mann seriously?  Like, other than how serious he takes himself, obviously.

Can't see this.
They only have one issue, and they can't even articulate that without cheating or lying.

He's quit Labour for the government.  Obviously no agenda there......


Yes, the anti-semitism stuff could have been handled better etc, but it's been blown to extreme proportions.

Bercow standing down, pity. Thought he did a pretty decent job considering the circumstances.

Bercow has snookered the government with his resignation there. Means the government do not have a majority to appoint the speaker they want.

They had announced they were running someone against him in his seat at the next election so he would probably have been out anyway, so the timing of this is definitely a final f***-you to the government.

Lindsay Hoyle (current deputy speaker) and Harriet Harman the early favourites to replace him.

Effectively means Labour lose an MP and the Tories gain one.

You sure?  It'll mean one of the opposition deputy speakers will just be replaced by a government one?  I think it's designed to be neutral.

I was thinking if Harmon becomes Speaker.  Tories will win Bercow's old seat easily.  Didn't think about deputies though.

Swinson laying the smack down as well. The Tories really need to take their party back from this absolute loon.
