Has anybody seen Mark Francois?
Or, as he is known to other MPs; Uncle Albert.
But Uncle Albert actually did serve in a war 

Francois is from Islington and faffed about in the Territorials for a few years while working in financial services and "consulting"

A bit like Gareth Keenan

Nothing at all wrong with being from Islington, it's just that Francois thinks there is, which is ironic given he comes from there

Just seeing some Tory scumbag on Prime Time claiming victimhood for the Brits, when asked why they are breaking international law, they are being bullied by the EU and they have no choice but to "stand up" and protect British interests. Of course the usual contempt for this country comes in and he basically encourages Ireland to join them in ditching the EU, that we essentially don't know what's good for us. Lads like that still can't comprehend how Ireland is not following their lead.

This initiative reeks of Cummings, who flagged it up in a blog quite some time ago. Only a PM of Bojo's ineptitude could have okayed it. The repercussions will be considerable and counter-productive. Some stirrings of civil war amongst the Tories themselves with three former leaders speaking out already and that's before the Lords scrutinises it and has a go. At least it's helpful to have government confirmation that compliance with the law is no longer obligatory, like in those Purge films. So nothing amiss with giving some of these clowns a few reproving slaps with a baseball bat, in a specific and strictly limited way of course.

Ross is a horrible man alright. How does he find the time to be a political party leader, see to his constituents and be a football referee at the same time, sometimes in a different country when there's a European fixture on.

He's either a leech or he's busier than Dwayne Johnson to achieve all that LOL

What does Dwayne Johnson do that makes him so busy?
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.

Probably spends half a day on the roids he's that juiced up LOL

He likes to do all of his commitments in 1 go rather than schedule them out, even if it means flying from continent to continent. I've heard stories whenever he was filming in Europe he'd fly back home just for a gym session at end of day filming.

I don't even know why he does roids he'd be in better shape than 99% of the population without them.

Good read. I particularly liked "Germany exports much more outside the EU than the UK, and, deliciously, its exports to the Canzuk countries (the fantasy potential British superpower of the dimmest Brexiters: Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the UK) are twice UK levels. "

Genuine question PM but why do you live in England? I can't think of anywhere in the developed world I'd have less desire to live in.

I've consistently made the the point that Trump and the Tories are not incompetent - they are exceedingly competent 

At burning down society

Which is their aim

Seriously though, many people don't end up living in the UK bu design necessarily and often it's flaws only become really obvious once you are there.
