  1. The aforementioned petition is still growing; it’s at 558k now. One way of looking it is that this is almost 7 times the number of people who voted to make Truss PM.
  2. This ongoing story from the world of chess: You have to wonder, at this point, how interested he was in the actual game of chess.

    I think you’ll agree, not much of what he ever has to say warrants acknowledging. No need for whataboutery here; move the deaths to the general section.

    Animal Antics

    See, I miss it where the posts in this thread were antics, as per the title, rather than just deaths. I think there should be two separate threads - a death-based one in General, and this Antics one here in EC.

    Liz Truss

    Forgive me, I’m just trying to understand where she’s coming from here. - She spent a segment of her speech slagging off her time in education in the 80s up to the mid-90s as being depressive and lacking aspiration. So, during the tenures of Thatcher and Major. - She used the word “growth” like there’s no tomorrow. It’s unequivocally the no.1 priority. Growth, growth, growth, something something growth growth. We haven’t had any decent growth since the global financial crisis a decade and a half ago, so fair enough. - She expressed the urge to break the status quo and hit the ground (running) with her new government around her. Her party has of course been in power for the last 12 years and she’s served in all 4 governments. To me, it sounds like she was only happy between 1997-2008.

    What makes the song choice even better is that Heather Small off of M People is a prominent Stop Rwanda campaigner and her son is a Labour councillor.

    Liz Truss

    She’s just started her speech. She walked out to M People - Moving On Up. Sadly, only the chorus played, as the lyrics in the verse make more sense: You've done me wrong, your time is up You took a sip from the devil's cup You broke my heart, there's no way back Move right out of here, baby, go on pack your bags Just who do you think you are? Stop actin' like some kind of star
  8. Another work of art from Cassetteboy:
  9. Khazi Kwarteng blames the complete horse’s arse he made of the mini budget on Mrs Queen’s death and the pressure associated with that, because he’s a fucking cunt. He passed time at her funeral pissing himself laughing at his phone, remember.
  10. More and more of this sort of thing coming from Tories. They know they’re on their uppers.
  11. Mate, you’ve said that before and it didn’t land last time. Piss off back to your lists.
  12. Very true, I haven’t heard anything about him in at least 26 years. I’m 26.
  13. An MP has called for a General Election. I’ll give you a moment to guess who… …nope, you’re wrong.
  14. Further proof that all of the 2019 Tory intake combined wouldn’t have enough brains to make one complete idiot.
  15. If she’d really listened, she’d have called a General Election*, then swiftly yeeted herself into the shit-tainted sea. *450k signatures on that petition now.
  16. If you listen closely you can just about hear a dead hamster flopping about on a spinning wheel.
  17. I’m utterly convinced a GE, whenever it comes, will see a Labour landslide. Nothing like to the extent that polls would suggest, but a majority of at least as much as Johnson managed is a very plausible outcome. The pound’s in the toilet. Energy’s in the toilet, and price-wise we’re getting shafted more than the rest of Europe despite this “cap” that Truss demonstrably doesn’t understand. The housing market will soon be in the toilet. Real-terms income is in the toilet. Morality is in the toilet. Integrity is in the toilet. Our global reputation is in the toilet. Public confidence in the government isn’t even in the toilet, it’s been flushed and dumped in our waters with all of our turds. And the vast majority of the public have finally realised, after living through it and getting progressively poorer (unless in the top couple of %), that trickle-down economics simply doesn’t work, to put it extremely mildly. The self-serving, morally bankrupt nature of the Tories has gone too far. Our eyes have been opened. There is a desperation for total change. On top of that, Starmer’s speech at the LPC has convinced a lot of people, even ones who are lifelong anti-Labour, that he’s a viable alternative. It was impressive, it was considered, it was pragmatic and it was reassuring to many. An outstretched hand to a largely traumatised nation. We can’t pretend that someone perceived as being a wet wipe is worse than what we’ve got. We also can’t pretend anymore that the Conservative Party are the ones to be trusted with the economy, because *gestures wildly at everything*. I can’t pretend either, as a lefty, that Starmer is everything I want from a leader, or that Labour is perfect - it really isn’t. But I have yet to see a convincing, straight-faced argument that it’s no better than what we’ve had for the past 12 years (the last 6 especially). It NEEDS to be an absolute Tory demolition, for the good of the Conservative Party itself if anything, so it can learn, rebuild itself, rid itself of the vitriol and the pure scum coursing through its veins at the moment, and return to (political views aside) something that at least resembles decency and competence. Surely, as a Tory, you’d want this? For ‘Tory’ to not be quite such a dirty word anymore? Truss is to the Tories what Corbyn was to Labour, and I suspect you know that. Rebuild it from the ground up and politics might not be such an unholy, broken battleground anymore. Final thought: It’s patriotic to want your country to do better and to recognise where it can and should be.

    Maybe advocate abolishing the monarchy (which is a legitimate argument) rather than wishing someone dead (which is something horrible cunts do).
