I have never been more convinced we live in a kakistocracy. Although Chapo Trap House's theory of "Hellworld" also makes sense.

It's gotta be clownworld timeline or some shit Sath, I legit cannot believe there are TWO major Western leaders who have haircuts like a homeschooled kid. Like, when you become POTUS or PM is there not a sassy black stylist who snips her scissors at you, cracks her neck side to side and snaps "nigga get your little rascall haircut ass in my chair!"


Buy a fucking suit that fits, get a haircut that your mother didnt do for free and at least LOOK slightly respectable.

Yeah totally agreed. Although both are also so unrealistically arrogant that there is no way you could improve on them.

My other theory is that now that all 3 are leader, Trump, Boris and Scomo can assemble their final form, Doltron.

We're definitely in a new political paradigm. Trump and Johnson have said and done so many things of which just one would ruin any other politician, yet they are just quirks for them. Though that level of incompetence and being ill-suited for the job says that there's something fractured in the Business-As-Usual politics of the last couple of decades. The masses have lost trust in conventional politicians despite this period of peace and prosperity, so the buffoons who thumb their nose at the establishment image get populist support. Saner politicians in liberal democracies need to do better to marginalise people like this...

Boris and Mogg have gone full thermonuclear by proroguing parliament and next week should be a cracker in London and always worth listening to the BBC's Laura Kuenssberg, she knows the deal better than most.

and truth be known I just love using the word prorogue.

At least if England wins The Ashes they can keep what is left of their economy in the little urn

301 - 328 good way for Boris to start his prime minister-ship; he'll likely fail again tomorrow and be forced to call for an election... the train wreck of British politics continues and will likely overshadow the test

Won't calling an election mean that no-deal Brexit happens by default?

no, the first bill for tomorrow is to stop a no deal brexit and force the PM to seek an extension till January and then to force an election as such a defeat for Boris would demand. he will still need to get a 2/3 majority vote for an election but it is likely that Labor will support the election motion.
so likely...
1. shut down no deal brexit
2. force an election probably 16th October.

unprecedented time at Westminster and to eject Winston Churchill's grandson from the tory's shows how desperate Boris and Mogg have become....

I'll be watching the cricket and the bbc tonight :)

Boris the clown storms Westminster and fails a further 3 times on the floor. an election is still the likely outcome but Labor won't support the motion until a no deal brexit is ruled out by the lords which might take a few days. so more days of chaos and lies from Boris.

I need to stop reading the woes of Westminster.
I had a dream last night that I was living in a share house while at uni with Boris and he kept on insisting on how we should pack the fridge... Boris "no the meat has to go on the third shelf as it has the best airflow or we will all die of some horrible disease and the cheese definitely on the fourth shelf" me: Boris your talking rubbish as always it won't matter a fettered dingo's kidney, Boris: yes it will and that is the type of stupid remark I'd expect from a convict, I'm trying to save your lives and I've meet the Queen !

lol there was more but alas dreams, some things you need to forget for your own mental health :)
