    You may recall him trying to run down the clock in the Commons in an attempt to block the bill pardoning Turing and other men who had been imprisoned or castrated for being gay. So he should get along fine with Tim Farron at least.
    Neo-Liberals would accept Hitler.

    The irony of you saying this is killing me. Perfection.

    My prediction for the Supreme Court ruling on prorogation: it was illegal, but there's no mechanism for reversing it and no sanctions either.

    But there is a mechanism for reversing it, and that is the sanction ...

    It seems a little outside the scope for a sanction? I guess everything at the moment is unprecedented so who knows.

    On the Guardian's live feed:

    That was extraordinary. Boris Johnson, the British prime minister, has just been humiliated by the leader of the tiniest country in the European Union.

    We were expecting a joint, open-air press conference but, with a large crowd of anti-Brexit campaigners threatening to drown out Johnson, it was announced that the British PM was not going to take part (presumably because of the demonstration, although that has not officially been confirmed yet). Normally in these circumstances the polite thing to do is to re-arrange. But instead Xavier Bettel, the prime minister of Luxembourg, just went ahead anyway, effectively “empty chairing” his guest. At one point he even gestured at the space where Johnson was supposed to be.

    And then Xavier just let rip. People often wonder what EU leaders say or think about Johnson in private. Well, now we know. The leave campaign was a pack of lies, Johnson’s talk of progress in the Brexit talk is unfounded, the UK still has not come up with any ideas about an alternative to the backstop. On and on he went, with particular emphasis on the point that the UK, not the EU, was to blame for the crisis. It was a “nightmare” for EU citizens, said Bettel. At several points he was loudly applauded by the protesters, because they felt he was articulating their anger.

    The Great Leap comes to mind.

    Its better to feign ignorance than remove any doubt of incompetence. Thats why im against direct democracy, lets me at least pretend to be ruled by competence.

    Brave Sir Boris ran away.

    Bravely ran away away.

    When danger reared it's ugly head,

    He bravely turned his tail and fled.

    Yes, brave Sir Boris turned about

    And gallantly he chickened out.

    Swiftly taking to his feet,

    He beat a very brave retreat.

    Bravest of the brave, Sir Boris!

    Maybe the Argentine junta in 1983 if we're looking for that mixture of callous indifference to well-being of their countrymen, massive incompetence and phenomenally self-assured misjudgement of the true situation of their nation in the world?

    Im glad you do not dispute it. An agreement then.

    All people of the Earth should be welcome in this country including the white folk from continental Europe who have spread whiteness all over the globe. Just not in numbers beyond carrying capacity and as part of a plot by evil Neo-liberals to gain political dominance.

    Venezuela in recent history. Hong Kong. I think the lesson here is that communists cannot be trusted.
