The Tories have screwed up the economy and the NHS. That's why they'll lose.
you missed out all the corruption too Damien

Re: The Chronicles of Rishi

All governments suffer from corruption.
Their screw-ups is what has undone them, just too many.

They (everyone) knows they are going to lose, so they're now just hanging on.
The thought of Labour in charge does not exactly fill me with hope of anything better.

Still, at least its not Corbyn in charge of them now.
Pretty sure he was one reason so many people turned away from them last time.

Thanks for repeating my point back to me and agreeing with it.

I didn't think I was, I thought you were whining about them being to liberal and not conservative enough in this thread and others, I was pointing out that them going left wasn't the problem, them looting the country for their and cronies benefit was, happy to clarify things for you and just so there's no doubt, them being to left wing isn't the problem, them being scumbags is

Undoubtedly, but given the Tory-created waiting lists it’ll be 2049 before they get to see someone about it.

In fairness, it seems to be the LibDems in meltdown there, losing a third of their vote v the Conservatives losing about 13% of theirs.

Yup, post-polling interviews support this. Not so much a pro-Johnson vote but more an anti-Corbyn one.

Re: The Chronicles of Rishi

Irony jumps the track, careens wildly down the embankment, smashes through a circus, bulldozes a mink farm, and plows into the river, where it bursts into flame, then rolls over and explodes, raining down smoking clown shrapnel and flaming weasels over a terrified countryside*

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/u...-b2519635.html

Quote:
Boris Johnson’s former ethics adviser has apologised for breaching House of Lords rules by helping a US satellite company influence Ministry of Defence (MoD) officials.

The Lords Commissioner for Standards found Lord Geidt, the late Queen’s former private secretary, broke the rules by giving some introductory remarks at a meeting in May 2021 between MoD officials and Theia Group Inc, which at the time employed him as an adviser.

Theia Group had put forward a proposal to enhance the UK’s space capabilities, and Lord Geidt told the commissioner his role had been to ensure the company’s contacts with the Government “were conducted properly”.

He also stressed that his role with Theia Group had been secured due to his prior experience and not due to his membership of the Lords.

But the commissioner found that his actions had contravened a prohibition on peers providing “parliamentary services” in return for payment, saying his attendance at the meeting counted as “assisting an outside organisation in influencing officials”.

Lord Geidt, who served as Boris Johnson’s ethics adviser between April 2021 and June 2022, had appealed against the commissioner’s findings, but his appeal was dismissed by the Lords Conduct Committee in a report published on Wednesday.

A businessman and former Egyptian government minister who donated £5m to the Conservative party last year has unexpectedly been given a knighthood on the recommendation of Rishi Sunak.
We should just get rid of all honours, it's a farce. Symbol of a decaying country where nothing but money counts.

I say keep it. There's no bigger proof that we are a chumocracy masquerading as a democracy. The whole thing needs overhauled.
