    Looks like things are starting to turn for Alexander de Pfeffle. No, i'm not on about us plebs actually holding him to account, but the MSM is looking increasingly like they are wringing Idiot Johnson out to dry. This latest debacle wiith the parties at whitehall et al seems to be splashed all over a lot of front pages (but forget about the upcoming demolition of the NHS, right to protest, brexit customs shitstorm and stealth taxes as non of that matters), where it may actually have an impact.

    If Labour get in on the next election pass (and thats a big if due to the stupidity of the UK electorate), they should look very pointedly at the media barons and how much sway they hold over public facing UK politics (as well as a host of other measures like FPTP, electrorial bounderies, corporation taxes, money laundering, offshoring etc).

    If labour even suggest they might look at the media barons funny they'll never get anywhere near power. Such is the nature of 'democracy' under the spectacle of mass media.
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    The media is turning against Johnson, not the Tory party.

    Leaked video of him hosting a party last December in the mirror. Someone wants him out and I don't see him surviving this.

    Saw a horrifying suggestion that Priti Patel is gauging her support for a challenge

    would be interesting having someone campaign on bringing back letters of marquee and slavery, but I'm not super keen on being sent to the mines as a traitor EU resident

    Liz Truss is apparently overwhelmingly popular with the membership for some ungodly reason.

    Also the shadow of Gove has reemerged


    Poland treats me like shit and I hate them as a result of it

    Picking anyone from the current tory front bench looks to be another long term trainwreck (lucky they have a couple of years to find someone better, before it matters :/ ). Alexander de Pfeffle picked his cabinet well, in that all those around him appear either as contemptuous as himself or as incompetent. The cabinet was picked based on their allegiance/subservience to Johnson, rather than any ability to do the job proffered to them in any sensible or proficient manner. I'm guessing Johnson, or likely his PR people were fully aware there were an awful lot of skeletons in Johnsonís closets and his ability to fuck things up through his own arrogance and chasing his own ego are very well documented. From his time in college to his time as foreign secretary, Johnson has left a trail of dumpster fires and failures behind him and his time as PM, if nearly over, is just another sign of that.

    What amazes me is that it seems like the other plebs who Iíve talked to didn't have a clue about Johnsons past, pre-election, and thought of him as just the bumbling funny buffoon. Which begs the questions of why the majority UK can't be arsed to do even a basic check into whether the person they are voting for is an utter sociopath or that the think electing a bumbling buffoon to run the country is in any remote way a good idea.

    Liz Truss gets weird support from the lunatics at conservative home, mainly because she pays lip service to 'small government' and idiots are impressed that she could roll over existing trade deals.

    Also the fact that they've come up with a snappy slogan, ie 'In Liz We Truss'.

    I am not making this up.
    'I'm pro life. I'm a non-smoker. I'm a pro-life non-smoker. WOO, Let the party begin!'

    The latest round of polls has Labour 4-9 points ahead, so it looks as though Partygate is having an effect.

    Most of those polls show Tory voters switching to "don't know" rather than over to Labour, which means that ditching Boris and a lick of paint may be enough to bring those voters back. Labour's done a good job of going after Boris on this recently, they need to now embed a notion that it's the lot of them rather than just him in the public's mind now.

    And even with that sort of swing, Labour would still not have an overall majority.
