General election 8th June


#1603

I wonder if Sinn Fein might be tempted to send their 7 MPs to Westminster this time. Might put the cat among the pigeons.


#1604

What? And have them swear allegiance to Liz? Not a cats chance in Crufts.


#1605

Absolutely no way. They always stand as an abstentionist party.


#1606

But they’re friends of Jeremy Corbyn aren’t they?


#1607

Yes, that is one of the reasons there is no shooting going on. Someone was brave enough to negotiate. Would that we could send BoJo into such a hostile atmosphere and expect much other than the return of a rotund and bloated body bag.


#1608

Times change. Maybe this is the time for Sinn Fein to be brave and participate in a progressive alliance at Westminster.

“For fuck sake, it’s that horrible May woman. Let’s just pretend we’re not in.”


#1610

Yep. And maybe the DUP will will have lunch with the Pope, the Murdoch Press will tell the truth.

Actually, the Shinners have non-participation as a manifesto item. They’d probably get turfed out by their own voters for taking part…


#1611

So according to Crispin Blunt “the electorate got it plainly wrong”. Not quite “the will of the people” now, is it?


#1612

Ah. I didn’t know that. It’s really not going to happen then. Pity.


#1613

This has been the case since partition I think. Amongst other things, they object to the oath of allegiance. They, and the Duppers, are a bunch of cunts of the lowest order.

Meanwhile, Ruth Davidson offers an olive branch to Arlene Foster…

:wink: Strong and stable, with plenty of continuity.


#1614

Just emailed my MP and told him to get off his Blairite arse and support his leader. The twat actually said at one point the a vote for him was not a vote for Corbyn. Well it bloody was and he should be be deselected if he doesn’t start to toe the line.

I expect I will get another platitudinous reply just like the last time I bollocked him when he voted against the party leadership and voted for bombing in Syria.


#1615

The DUP are batshit crazy. If you think UKIP were a bunch of loons, they are amateurs compared to the Orange Lodge. It wouldn’t surprise me if they demanded compulsory bowler hats and sash wearing on July 12 as a condition of their support.

No way are Sinn Fein (just as bad in their own particular way…) going to negotiate to get the Stormont assembly going again with a government propped up by this lot.

This partnership is going to be fucking horrendously damaging.


#1616

Do tell???


#1617

Lazy, I know, but here you go.

And:


#1618

Proof that you should never seek a butchers opinion about anything other than meat :meat_on_bone:


#1619

Labour confirmed winners in Kensington by 20 votes.

A mate told me that the swing was due to the influx of Russian millionaires into the area :grinning:


#1620

Triple Stolichnayas all around comrades! Nostrovia!!!


#1621

2227 votes short apparently.


#1622

I do like News Thump.
