I think now is when it gets more interesting. 2 candidates both promising the same thing in slightly different ways will concentrate the minds of those that oppose them. Out by the 31st October. Boris hasn't said how he'll do it I don't think but has hinted at a renegotiation and using the 39 billion as collateral, Hunt that he'll renegotiate full stop.

Of the 2 Hunt sound more pragmatic. He thinks he can deliver but has already given himself an out. On Sky last night one of his supporters was asked just how he plans to renegotiate with the EU given the EU are on holiday and the guy basically tapped his nose and said "contacts". It'll be interesting to see if that tactic can hold for a month of questioning.

Boris is going to do it with the positive power of his mind I think. In the same interview with Sky one of his supporters actually advocated a General Election if everything was still deadlocked but went on to point out that was his view and not Boris's. Still, the idea has been officially floated.

Of course neither one of them will get anywhere. One will be elected in the next 4 weeks. Parliament comes back from its own holiday 1st September. That leaves 8 weeks and 3 days to do something that couldn't be done in the preceding 3 years. Neither winner of the leadership race will have the full support of their own party let alone Parliament. It's going to be fun.

well thankfully they are using this extension well then, a pack of jokers.


it was the time to cancel holidays and speed up this leader process, instead they are already running clock for no good reason.

Yup. No rush though because the EU are all on holiday until 1st November anyway.

Jeremy has Macron on Whatsap though so *touches nose* don't worry.

Let's be honest whoever wins we're up the proverbial creak without a paddle.

at this point they dont even have to pretend to be reasonable or give a crap about the country, Hunt just said if he cant get a new deal from the EU then its better politically to go for no deal no matter the damage it will do.

in general they hide that sort of thing badly but what kind of person thinks in that kind of manner and they get to become PM, someone whose willing to screw the country to save a party.


if no deal becomes the only real option then a second vote is really needed as that wasnt a serious option during the first vote.
and at this point i would take that outcome, a clear cut remain or leave with no deal.

where in that sentence?


and i think you misspelt peaceful protestor.



not really shocked with what side you took though on violence against a woman


so Brand makes a joke and you berate her, this fella actual commits an act and you defend him.


the danger line is utter BS, look at his face at the start of it or how long he goes on with it, he is just a nasty piece of work that needs to be remove as an MP.
