If watching the UK get absolutely rinsed by France was on a ballot, I'd sure as hell vote for it.

Same.

UK politics in a nutshell from my experience:

BREXIT BREXIT BREXIT BREXIT BREXIT BREXIT BREAKFAST BREXIT
NO IMMIGWANTS^100000
MEGHAN MARKLE VS ROYAL FAMILY

At some point it was:

TERRORISM TERRORISM TERRORISM

Honestly politics in general is sort of pointless for someone like me. Like I or anyone of us have some influence. I just focus on what I have control over.

Poor Dodi was the true victim, never was there a truer instance of the juice not being worth the squeeze. :cry:

Don't be silly.

The Tories would never donate to food banks.

They very much do. The largest food charity organisations recieve substantial government funding.

The issue isn't one of comic-book villains who want to see people starve: it's that reliance on food charity might become normalised, that UK governments are too comfortable treating the symptom, rather than the causes of instability.

Anyway, wheeling Patel out was a smart move. Blame bad people rather than bad policy. It nearly always works.

Patel looks like a fat ugly hungry insect.
