    Well, that's the BBC unwatchable for the next week.

    Still, she's a great example for how someone can come back from being in a vegetative state to have a successful career.

    Come back?

    More like still in.

    Reminds me of the skit for the "National society for the advancement of dead people".

    She would be more use as a draught excluder or a door stop.

    I am split as to which alternative was worse - Richy Sunak, the walking disaster that is Truss or the liar in chief that is on his way out.

    I am really not sure there is much to separate them tbh - I wouldn't ever vote for any of them to hold the remote for the TV never mind anything more important.

    Paddypower has her at 4/1 to be gone by next year. I might take a tenner of that.

    Those are long odds.

    She won't last. Every Tory PM of my lifetime with the exception of John Major has resigned. I think 4/1 is pretty decent odds, I would've put it at evens or worse. She might just be incompetent enough to see out the term but my money is on her quitting, Sunak taking leadership and an early GE being called to capitalise on Labour still being unelectable.

    When the alternative is a corrupt government who want to privatize the NHS, strip away out labour laws, and funnel money to their billionaire mates and donors, what makes Labour unelectable?

    To be honest if the choice was between the Conservative party and the "we will stab you in the face" party, I'd probably vote for getting stabbed in the face.

    What makes them unelectable? The media - never known for holding back from slagging off anyone that does not support their interests - hence the Mail, Express, Sun, Times, Telegraph etc we’re all against the EU as soon as the EU announced that they were going to crack down on off shore tax avoidance. Personally I would like to see the situation where to publish in the UK you have to be registered for tax purposes here too - that may annoy the owners of the aforementioned publications.
