    The 'two left feet' punchline didn't work because that's not a used or known euphemism for being left wing. Should have said something about leaning to the left.

    Plus he stuttered in the delivery.

    That could have been a very poor taste remark about Ed Balls's stammer- hopefully not. He could have used the fact that Ed Balls is the Chairman of the second placed second division football team, but that would have been unwise given David Cameron's beloved Aston Villa*are so poor at present.

    Phillip Hammond seven months ago:

    “Hard-headed analysis shows that every alternative to remaining in a reformed EU would leave Britain weaker, less safe and worse off. Working people would pay the price with fewer jobs and rising prices… British businesses would be squeezed out of traditional markets… [Brexit would mean we] sacrifice jobs and growth… while our competitors forge ahead…”


    Phillip Hammond today:

    “The British people did not vote on June 23 to become poorer or less secure… No one should be in any doubt that we have the skills, the ingenuity and the determination to make a success of Brexit... We ARE going to make a success of it… Our vibrant, successful economy will mean that when future generations look back on our decision in 2016 they will see not the end of an era but the beginning of a new age… A bigger, better, greater Britain…”

    I would have thought you would have supported the more free market approach of Camborne rather than the one nation rhetoric of May.*
    Ummmm....

    The two left feet remark was a swipe at Corbyn.
    But it didn't makes sense as a joke because 'two left feet' is not a euphemism for being left wing.

    I don't watch Strictly. I don't watch X Factor either. I saw Kate Tempest's performance on BBC 2 on Saturday which was wonderful. Real talent and originality.

    As does the Welsh Tories' education spokesman Darren Millar. Such is the nature of devolution.

    Such is the nature of having a completely different electorate to deal with

    The Tories in the devolved assemblies are I suppose TINOs, then again, so are quite a few of the ones in the Commons.

    The referendum democratic deficit according to remainers: The democratically elected government is not democratic enough, the largest vote in British history bears no democratic mandate, so we should listen to a bunch of appointed barristers and listen to the appointed HoL.

    No wonder British businesses are "fat and lazy". We haven't been making those innovative neural-network trained, 3D printed, blockchained jams that France needs.

    Never forget that even somebody with just about enough brain cells to string together a sentence with difficulty can make it into a Conservative government, we're so inclusive even the retarded women are allowed in, and if you're lucky, they will even endorse your losing position
