    I thought I would make a thread on what caught you eye in the news good or bad. This follows on from last week when I posted about the MP Lee Anderson who suggested we could cook a meal from scratch for 30p and foodbanks weren’t needed if we could cook.

    So today another Tory MP Racheal Maclean the safeguarding minister has said “That people struggling with the cost of living should take on more hours or move to a better-paid job”

    How does a comment like this help the most vulnerable in society. Those that can’t work, the disabled pensioners or even those that can only take up low paid work for what ever reason. I find Mp’s and ministers are so out of touch with with the public, the comments they come out with are beyond nonsense.

    Well the news yesterday of Rishy and Javid resigning from the government is a step closer and massive pressure on bojo. Can’t wait for today’s resignations.

    38 resignation! Holy shit, I never expected this.

    Senior ministers including Zahawi the new chancellor and Gove are meeting bojo this evening to tell him to go.

    I wonder if Zahawi is aware that on he unlikely event bojo does go. The chances are the next PM  will pick a new team and Zahawi’s his new found fame is likely not to last long.

    Johnson will be gone either tonight or before the newly elected 1922 committee meet next Tuesday.

    Probably not, Struth. The esteemed leader’s devoted followers aren’t troubled by mis-doings. Her talk of independence keeps her halo bright.

    That’s the problem, there is no one fit to run the country as they are all either corrupt, liars or so out of touch with the commoners. On top of that you have both hardened leave and remain MP’s in the Tory party.

    We are in the shite.

    More so, because from his speech, he is determined to carry on. He’s going to try to win the party leadership election again in the autumn.

    The only way an Asian will be prime minister is if the MPs choose two Asians as there choice to the membership. The Tory membership are as right wing as it gets so the thought of an Asian as PM will not sit well with them.

    I really don’t know much about any of them but I will say Sunak has as good a chance as any.

    Brydo, sometimes you talk nonsense. This is one of those times. Right wing is not racist.
