Election time !!!

Quote:
... Political parties are readying themselves for a general election campaign after MPs voted for a 12 December poll.

The legislation approved by MPs on Tuesday will later begin its passage through the House of Lords, where it is not expected to be opposed.

Boris Johnson says he is ready to fight a "tough" general election.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said the snap poll was a "once-in-a-generation" opportunity to transform the country ...


Its korbins turn !!

Speaker Bercow is retiring. Bear in mind because the Tories threatened to defy convention and put up a candidate against him in his constituency, so not exactly retiring of his own free will.

A lot of MPs are retiring before the voters can kick them out. Many defectors going, I wonder why ...

Also Boris gives a masterclass in how to tear into someone while being complimentary.

Finally... an election.

I'm pretty damn certain that the left will not only get trounced but that Brexit will be a huge success story.

The Europees over here barely understand their own languages let alone economics. I do, however, understand that the German government is pulling back on spending to build a surplus. That's called Austrian economics. They probably see the train going off the tracks and want to have an option to get out of town.

The success of the US economy is generally ignored here in Spain. But if the UK does well after leaving the EU (which I believe it will), that will be something that will be impossible to ignore. All the Europee serfs will start asking the question... "why isn't our economy doing well?" The answer of "we need more taxes to save the world from climate change and more immigrants to have babies," probably won't cut it.

The British are fed up of their parliament.

Violence against MPs ‘price worth paying’ to get Brexit result: poll

Quote:
Both sides prepared to resort to extreme measures to see the Brexit debate resolved.

LONDON — A majority of voters on both sides of the Brexit debate said violence against MPs is a “price worth paying” in order to get a resolution they favor, according to a survey.

Violence was option before the referendum too: murder of Jo Cox. :(

Fact is Western Europe is doing terribly and has been for years, if not decades. When growth of <1% is considered success, for year after year, you got a problem`.

Problem is that the EU is actually incredibly insular, aside from Orange Man Bad the Euronutter types havn't the faintest clue about what goes on in the rest of the world. When they talk about how the UK won't have any trade deals outside the EU and I bring up New Zealand's one with China (which a poll in New Zealand suggested Kiwis were pretty happy with) you can almost see the neurons imploding, for example.

I'm not sure the EU is the cause of this. But it certainly isn't the key to economic success, that should be obvious to anybody who can compare economies of similar development levels in and out of the EU.

And yes, while you can never say with any certainty what the outcome of an election would be, smart money is on BoJo giving the left an absolute thrashing.
