Indeed. And we would be well rid of all those like Mogg, Fox, Raab, Boris, etc who gambled the future of the nation against personal gain. Whatever the outcome though, the Tories a ****ed come next GE.
How did that prediction work out for you QE2? Were the Tories fcucked at the GE, would you say? Are you well rid of Mogg, Fox, Raab and Boris etc?

I was looking for Grieve, Umuna, Gauke, Hammond, Rudd,Soubry, Letwin, Allen, and Wollaston on the green benches the other day, and couldn't see them? Do you know what happened? Do you think they spoke for their voters and they re-elected them?

And what about your famous six million signers of this petition? How did that make a difference?

I forgot to take into account the industrial-strength propaganda campaign against Corbyn by almost the entire media (even the Guardian were briefing against him). And the general stupidity of most of The People.
Without those two things, they would have been.

Ah, that old old excuse, the meedja! That isn't going to ever change, so what's the plan next time round? Or will it be Groundhog Day?

As for The People being generally stupid, why don't you dissolve it and elect a new one? That might work?

If the next Labour leader is another genuine, left-wing socialist, then yes, it will happen again.
However, if it is another Blair, then possibly not.

We would need an awful lot of acid to dissolve all the idiots in society.

Hmm. That implies that those people are already educated.

It may have brken the Parliament's website, and it may have 6 million signatures, but the petition is closed and the outcome is the exact same as before:

"Government responded
This response was given on 26 March 2019

This Government will not revoke Article 50. We will honour the result of the 2016 referendum and work with Parliament to deliver a deal that ensures we leave the European Union."


With Johnson still in government after the recent election, that isn't changing. Johnson wants to get Brexit done - which is what the majority (albeit a slim majority) of people voted for back in 2016. Nothing's changing. Brexit will happen.

Do you think Labour's total and utter contempt for most of those whose vote it sought, evidenced by the above, and Emily Thornberry's similar unguarded remarks and tweets, is a winning electoral strategy?

Simple question? And a serious one, although I know you are taking the pi$$, you clearly mean it, all the same.

There was no "total and utter contempt" for voters from the Labour Party.
The people showing such contempt are the shameless political opportunists who will say anything, regardless how dishonest or insincere, in order to gain the populist vote.
Labour's policy of honesty and principle may have been misguided, but that's a different issue.

The irony here is that you see honesty and principle as contempt, but regard genuine contempt as something laudable.
