The far right playbook is progressing exactly as I described at the top of the previous page of this thread

And the sad thing is that the vast majority can't see how they're being played for fools, even though it's very obvious

Rivals plan Fox News-style opinionated TV station in UK

Groups pitching to perceived desire for alternative output as trust in BBC falls

Posting here so we’re not clogging up the Covid thread.

Hancock is blaming people with no symptoms for undetected Covid cases. LOL

The fact he’s using this as an excuse but at the same time is allegedly trying to hit a target of 100,000 tests a day requires testing people with no symptoms (which they’ve never reached)

Is he the worst cabinet minister of all time?

He has a lot of fierce competition for that particular accolade.

It's actually incredible that a British government minister can blatantly say in the British Parliament that they fully intend to break international law. They are utter scum. British exceptionalism at it's finest.

Technically yes but democracy in the US is about to end so no

Well yes, pretty significantly. 

The yanks played a role in the good Friday agreement and they're pretty much obliged to have a say in it, and with the Democrats having full control of congress they'll just reject any deal regardless of what it obtains.

Hard to believe there are still people who think US institutions are worth one fook in terms of standing up to Trump

They're not

And especially not Pelosi, who's f**king spineless and useless

When did this become about Trump? Get a life man.


It's a simple matter of saying if Boris destroys the Good Friday agreement we'll destroy any hopes of a trade deal.

Didn’t she do some weird sideways slow clap about a year ago when Trump was speaking. That was powerful stuff

Well the democrats control the house don't they so I presume they can block any trade deal?

Em, the discussion is about a US-UK trade deal, it's inherently to do with Trump

Trump is the US president and he will still be after November

Trump doesn't give one f**k about the Good Friday Agreement

Trump and his lunatics want an international alliance of mafia states with regulation completely ripped away and the Brits are only too willing to play along, especially under PM Cummings who is one of the most dangerous men in British history

Pelosi will be irrelevant in all this, Trump will just ride roughshod over the Democrats and a way will be found to bypass Congress

Time after time after time we're told that the rule of law will protect against fascism

It has completely failed, Trump has bought US law, it's turning into a mafia state before everybody's eyes and nobody is doing anything about it

Pelosi is all show, she's like the "good Germans" in the 1930s, f**king useless - in reality she's more interested in "sick burns" on Trump like a slow hand clap on camera, like Trump gives one f**k

Trump cares about money, power and immunity from prosecution - that's all he cares about

And that power is likely to be absolute before long - all US law enforcement and miltary and homeland security are completely infested by the fash - they'll do nothing either, they'll actively go to bat for him

Some ultra Brexit lunatic from the ERG on Newsnight there. The mental gymnastics they go through to defend the indefensible really is unreal.

Ha ha, he really did try hard but Emma Barnet tore him apart using his own words. He reminded me of some of the Republicans defending trump over the last few years.

Or, as he is known to other MPs; Uncle Albert.
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.
