Armchair politics


#2869

Apparently if they get 7,000 signatures on a petition from the constituency it can force a by-election.


#2870

That could get that on Twitter tonight!


#2871

As I said though, I think the ducking stool is a more likely option in Peterborough.


#2872

Over 24,000 people voted against her last time. It doesn’t sound like it should be hard.

She got caught speeding. Big fucking deal. Why did she feel the need to lie about it? Stupid fool has ruined her life.


#2874

Indeed, mad how something like that spiralled out of control.

3 points or a speed awareness course. Everyone tuts for 5 minutes and moves on.


#2875

And after seeing what happened to Chris Huhne.

But still this seems to be something that people do fairly routinely - if you’re on six points and someone else is clean, just transfer to them, no harm done. Wrong.


#2876

Her brother had done this a few times before and sounds like he sorted it very quickly. I guess she had to decide then whether to send him to prison or try and bluff it out.

Crazy situation to get in to.


#2877

What, taken points for others or persuaded others to take his? :thinking:


#2878

Persuaded others to take them.


#2879

Shame she didn’t know a solicitor. On an ‘I have this friend who’s done a bad thing’ basis she might’ve got some useful advice.

Oh. Hang on.

Lib Dems preparing for govt.

It’s going great, Jez. The Bobby Fischer of politics.


#2882

He does not agree with you. He is a Muppet. We are all doomed.


#2883

Don’t think they can do that yet as she is appealing the sentence


#2884

Corbyn calls for snap election to help put an end to austerity

That cunt is so desperate to be PM he will try and use anything as an excuse for a GE.

I really believe the Brexit supporting fucktard has become a full on bullshit career politician now.


#2885

It can’t be done until the appeal is resolved.


#2886

that’s what I said.


#2887

I can’t blame him for that, but the opinion polls seem to suggest that he would have a hard time winning a majority.

He does seem to be having problems pronouncing the letter n though

The Labour leader met with voluntary organisations and charities working to tackle poverty in south-west Glasgow on Saturday, where he criticised “Tory cuts”


#2888

No. You said you didn’t think they could. I was confirming the rule.
