Re: The Chronicles of Rishi

Westminster tittle tattle, won’t resonate with the man on the street, must happen all the time, revolving door etc. etc etc.

Insert other generic sentences to downplay.

Agreed.

As to how many Conservative MPs have the fight in them remains to be seen - many are standing down.

Starmer might not have any ideas but he’s up against 14 years worth of bad ones.

Add to that the colossal shitshow the Conservatives have made of this country where nothing works anymore many voters l would imagine would be pretty happy to vote for a sober boring politician rather then the clowns this country has elected these past few years.

What are the positive Conservative legacies since David Cameron took power? I appreciate that some of politics is luck but the Conservatives tenure has not just been during the two years of Covid.

Some that come to mind are ironically quite woke: introduction of same-sex marriage, a record number of ethically diverse MPs, a legally-binding target of Net Zero emissions by 2050, sales of petrol/diesel-only vehicles banned from 2030 and revoking Thatcher's bus deregulation by allowing regional transport authorities to manage bus routes like TfL does in London.

Be fair Andrew they've just come up with a cracking new wheeze... Cutting the number of visas for care workers. Too many of these types coming over here and caring for our increasingly geriatric nation.

RIP The Brains Trust, formerly known as the Conservative Party...

One thing for sure about this Government is that it’s very ethically diverse. But I’m not sure it’s a good thing.

Re: The Chronicles of Rishi

Michael Gove's sh*t cake is on the making, I can smell it.

We have been accused that we abnormally produced too much sh*t.
See attached.

Can we go lower? We are a laughing stock of a country.

If there’s a country that can go any lower on any meaningful barometer I’d back the United Kingdom every time.

Re: The Chronicles of Rishi

Rishi Sunak is facing yet another by-election this morning after the Parliament's standards watchdog has published the findings of an inquiry into groping allegations against former government whip Chris Pincher..

Re: The Chronicles of Rishi

The trouble is that the Tories announce all sorts of new initiatives but seldom manage to put a useful deadline and on any they do they then conveniently forget about them before being forced to announce a new initiative.They never get to an end point.

Labour is just as bad, especially in the light of Starmer’s policy retractions. Both are shite, frankly. I’m so ashamed of them in government.

Move away from the moderate centre ground of British politics to the increasingly extreme politics of the right wing is it any wonder their poll ratings are utterly desperate.
