Is Hull's choice BoJo or Nige to lead this nation deeper into the shit 21st century?

A tough one, for all but Teddie?

I can see it all reverting back to the normal crap once Brexit actually happens. Back to the Labour/Tory nonsense. Not a single strong personality between them. In the meantime, I'll happily make a protest vote in one of our most irrelevant elections ever. The result here will probably be very much in line with the rest of Europe. This is what happens when the left goes too far. It's a correction. Normal service will be resumed soon, but possibly without the EU. I will shed approximately a big fat 0 tears over its demise.

The Left goes too far = don't upset neoliberal policies, even in the face of gross inequality.

No. It's the globalist issue. It's the left in the US that are neoliberals, and the EU is neoliberal to the core. The Labour party lost its neoliberals when the Blairite Turncoats jumped ship to form the StayTheSame party.

The rise of the right across Europe is a response to the left moving too much the left. There are certainly graphs showing the left moving further leftwards in the USA. Anyone to the right of Karl Marx is a Nazi, obviously.

Maybe you don't think the EU is running on the neoliberal mindset. The good news for the whole world is that the neoliberal concensus is soon to be flushed from the swamp. That screws up the Tories here and the Democrats across the pond, curious as it may seem.

The new aims of the authoritarian idiot left in the USA include opposing freedom of speech (heaven knows how that changed sides) and there are even leftists over there speaking out against mixed marriages and in favour of racial segregation. Mind boggling.

To be fair, it doesn’t take a lot to boggle your mind, old chap. 

2005 Labour got 355 seats from 35.2 % of the vote on a 62.4% turnout. 2015 Tories got 331 seats from 36.9% of the vote on a 661% turnout. Left wing fannies moan the second one is sooooo unfair and we need electoral reform. But didn't utter a peep,about the first one.

And the Workers’ Paradises were sooooo equal, weren’t they? All the party bosses were equally well off and all the plebs were equally in the shit.

Yes I voted for Nigel's Brexit Party.

Still not sure about Boris as PM, I think the MP for South Northamptonshire might do better at breaking the paralysis we find ourselves in.

Good leaders are scarce, Labour and the LD's can't find one.

That's State Capitalism for you.

Why you should want to compare a fairer society with the FSU is anybody's guess. I suppose it saves you from having to comment on the gross inequality of our country today? And its possible plunge into becoming Amerikkka Minor.

I don't agree with this.


After 30 years of the 'same' party being in power within the EU, albeit under different names, another side, also funded by billionaires, is having a pop at winning and doing quite well.

The left/right monikers are just used to simplify the arguments, unite each team and make the war palatable for us plebs as it's better to agree with a political doctrine than a billionaire elite funded party. Race, class and customs and Brexit are being used as weapons in this war. We are the collateral damage.

We're all mugs doing exactly what they want. Arguing amongst ourselves whilst they indulge in the game of thrones.

So, the Communist Party wasn't in charge, it was the State Capitalist Party?

So who do you want as PM, definitely need a Brexiteer and a tougher cabinet, not sure about Raab though, still like Gove and Leadsome, as an outsider I'd like Steve Baker in there too.

Good to have May out.
