    crazy-legs

    Remember when JRM’s hateful sister Annunziata(?) somehow got herself elected as an MEP and on getting to Brussels she was given an iPad and a phone and various other accoutrements of being an MEP…

    She posted on Twitter to say what a waste of resources etc cos she already had all this stuff and people absolutely ripped into her explaining that it was there for her to DO HER JOB as a **** MEP, be able to access classified documents, conduct MEP business in a secure manner etc…

    Maybe she was only there for the gravy train aspect and didn’t think she’d have to do any work… Bet the EU were glad to see the back of the UK after we sent them morons like Farage, Widdecombe and ARM.

    Remember no, surprised no….

    MEP’s aside … when you watch Parliament TV and how these supposed adults act I’m sure most of them think they are on some sort of RealityTV show just trying to entertain and not get sent home.

    Im sure they know which devices they can browse their tractor porn on

    Im pretty sure Cummings admitted that it was common practice recently (using non-secure email/phones for gov business), which is ironic when hes always using is next level brain powers to warns us about the dangers of cyber wrafare etc

    And another of Truss’s appointees – JRM’s ex business partner Dominic Johnson gets the push too.

    But here is the best bit – he was made a Lord to carry out the role as a government minister but he doesn’t have to give that back!!!

    By some strange coincidence ‘Lord’ Johnson was vice chairman of the tory party from ’16 – ’19 and has donated £250 000 to the scummy bastards since 2014.

    Good news. Well, apart from what he gets out of doing nothing that is.

    The figure of Truss is clutching a cardboard box containing a goodbye card, a copy of Guinness World Records in reference to her record as the shortest-serving prime minister, a copy of her mini-budget, a “make Britain great again” red cap, a T-shirt with the slogan “I am a fighter, not a quitter” and a cheque for £115,000 in reference to the perpetual funding provided to ex-prime ministers.

    The box itself has a big upside down U with the words “this way up” the wrong way up and “Oh Dear Oh Dear Oh Dear Packaging Ltd” – a reference to King Charles’ words to Truss when she arrived to meet him.

    Edenbridge seems a strange venue for the public mocking of a former Tory Prime Minister – it couldn’t be more Tory heartland.

    Edenbridge is in a parliamentary constituency which in the last general election the Tories received 63% of the vote.

    incorruptible honesty.

    Apart from the fact that he was shagging someone else’s missus whilst he was Prime Minister and preaching Tory “traditional family values” to everyone else in his Back to Basics campaign.

    And not forgetting that he sat on his fat arse and did sweet **** all when the shit hit the fan and over a third of a million people lost their homes, and countless more became prisoners of negative equity, due to failed Tory policies.

    Choosing instead to blame the victims themselves for the unprecedented and historical housing crises caused by his and Thatcher’s policies:

    FFS ernie – major’s premiership ended in 1997 and he stood down an MP in 2001; that’s 21 years ago.
    No-one – other than you, apparently – gives a flying one about major.
    The thread is about truss – and she is also history.
    Time to move on.

    I think you’re missing that it was a joke – Major was not a great PM, but he looks like an utter superstar compared to the recent bunch.

    It wasn’t Ernie who brought Major into the conversation.

    Thanks for the tip Frank but I didn’t bring up John Major – having trouble following the thread?

    And if Truss is history why are you clicking on this thread? Just to police it?

    Well I certainly thought “incorruptible honesty” in the context of him shagging someone else’s missus while preaching traditional Tory family values to the nation was hilarious, does that count?

    That would be a major clue.

    Funny that as that is exactly what I’ve seen on Twitter from the Tory bots & shills in regard to the current interest rate rises and folk not been able to afford their mortgages.

    Same PlayBook.

    Politicians don’t leave it long before trying to re-write history, do they?

    Mind you…. If a political career can be resurrected in just 6 days, why hold back

    “It wasnt me, sir, honest it wasnt. It was that truss girl from 5c, sir.” Says the former holder of the second highest office in the land. What a snivelling rat.

    To be fair Liz Truss blamed Kwarteng for implementing the tax policies which she herself championed during her leadership campaign. She was widely condemned for doing so.

    https://inews.co.uk/news/politics/truss-throws-kwarteng-under-bus-claim-higher-income-tax-rate-cut-his-decision-dorries-says-1889500

    Callous self-serving ambitious Tory politicians stabbing each other in the back in a desperate and futile attempt to hang on to some credibility shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone.

    These people aim for high office because they want to boost their egos, not endure public humiliation. They have no loyalty to anyone other than themselves, not even to their own party.
