Personally if things continue as they are l would say a hung parliament is a pretty good betting proposition whenever the next general election happens.

The results of the local elections are no real guide to what will happen in a General Election. Only some council areas had an election anyway, and the results were skewed by London.

The local elections last year certainly were no indication of what would happen in a General Election as Theresa found to her cost ! They underestimated Labour support in a national vote a few months later.

Williamson is not up to the job, but Theresa has an ever decreasing pool of 'talent' e.g. Boris - Foreign Secretary - you wouldn't have got way with this as a joke 5 years ago....

The elephants are out of Africa and Williamson out of his depth. Unbelievably crass answers and well done to Richard Madeley for not tolerating such nonsense.

Every time Liam Fox opens his mouth he makes it up. A real fight for dunce of the month at the moment!

Re: Government & Post Election Discussion

I think that Fox is worried that he won't have a department to run in a while. The fear of redundancy can make people say stupid stuff. He'll still have a job though, just not a cabinet level position.

Yeah, I mean when you are accused of having a "show me your papers policy" what else is there to do, other than resign?

In the Labour Party, where Antisemitism is rife, so far there is a leader who won't deal with the problem properly despite being under pressure, i.e by sacking Ken Livingston or resign.
Of course...compare the other side to Hitler apologists. What else.

(FYI that wasn't a swipe at you, May did that exact thing on PMQs which is precisely the kind of behavior that makes me view her so poorly).

Re: Government & Post Election Discussion

For where there is anti Semitic abuse with some parts of the Labour party we also have Islamophobic abuse with some parts of the Conservative party.
