    In his speech to the CBI today, The First Lord of the Treasury the Rt.Hon. Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson has put himself on a par with Moses, spoken about how great a day out Peppa Pig World is, and lost his place.

    He also impersonated a car.

    I genuinely think people were just rallying round the flag during the covid crisis. The general public are stupid but not stupid enough to miss quite how bad the tories are.

    My boomer parents are always sympathetic of whoever is in power, especially if they have a blue rosette. But their opinions are definitely shifting against the tories.
    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.

    Chatting to my neighbor who is in a similar boat, Blue Essex set etc.
    I asked him "Would you won't vote tory in the next election" - "probably".

    Need to figure out how to keep these people away from the Tories. Most, expecialy older people are difficult to crowbar from their entrenched "Gordon Brown Stole My Pension" views. Sadly.
    Please don't teach me what to do with my pc.

    I'd say we're more cynical than just stupid. The Tories benefit more from that, since if everyone already assumes they're crooks, they're not surprised when they turn out to be. So long as they can keep the idea that there's no better alternative to them going, they can pretty much do what they want - or at least not face any great electoral harm for their transgressions.

    A lot of people don't follow the news that closely and end up deciding that all politicians are as bad as each other.

    That's the crux.

    I live in a safe Tory seat. Everyone's fed up of Boris, even his staunchest defenders. But they all reckon if the Tories got someone good in they'd vote Tory again, because "can you imagine what it would've been like under Labour?"

    So basicly bi-politics USA?

    All truth passes through three stages.
    First, it is ridiculed.
    Second, it is violently opposed.
    Third, it is accepted as being self-evident..

    I had the 'speech' on in the background of playing TW:WH2 and (amongst the usual terrible ammounts of bullshit, soundbites and bluster) i had to stop the game to make sure i wasn't hearing things. Alexander de Pfeffel Johnson is a tit. If this is an act, hes lost the confidence of those in the CBI. If it's real, he's lost the confidence of the CBI. He's either lost himself to his persona or he just doesn't give a shit anymore. It could be hes had enough of the PM game and is looking to retire on a nice little (!) nest egg from parliament and continuing back handers for influence, but no-one in the cons could look at his performance and say 'yes, this is the leader we need'. What an embarrassment.

    On top of the social care bill, loss of the northern HS2 line, inflation, continued privitisation of the NHS, corruption and facepalming u-turns, how the fuck do people keep voting for these morons.

    I perhaps think we should introduce a questionnaire prior to elections where people must demonstrate they are at least slightly aware of what the fuck is going on in the world around them and how the parliamentarians effect their lives before being able to vote, as the current system is an utter dumpsterfire.

    Also watched V for vendetta at the weekend. Oh my, the parallels are a bit worrying.
    Shitting up eve for .... well, longer than most of you scumbags.

    I know a few people who work for the CBI and I can assure you he never had their confidence. The didn't forget 'fuck business' from the brexit campaign.

    After having worked in her department for 2 months, I can tell you that it would be awful.

    They don't even have that level of ideological nuance. It's 'fuck everyone who isn't in on the grift'. It's almost soviet in nature.

    I think it would only be worth mentioning if there was any competence shown by her. She seems dangerously stupid and is only in her position due to her loyalty to Johnson.

    I did particularly like him praising the British creative industries while also planning to kneecap all non stem courses as they don't deliver skills needed for the economy.
