BBC Daily Politics and PMQs

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. You obviously know people who would say Corbyn reamed May even if he wasn't there, especially as even the Guardian doesn't go as far as your "friends" are going.

  2. That was my reading of her comment ref there is a criminal investigation on-going and we should be careful what 'we say' and how it is said.
    Put it this way , it seemed to be an 'if the cap fits, and you know who you are ... ' moment.
  3. In spite of it's influence, I don't think "Social" media (Facebook, twitter), is (yet) considered to be "Mainstream" e.g. established press, TV, radio, etc..

  4. Ken Livingston has already done that the day after the fire. Oh and Blair. Also greedy landlords.
  5. NSP

    NSP LE

    Has he blamed the Jews yet?
  6. I really would like to agree with you @NSP, but I do not think "dignified eloquence", is sufficient or even appropriate under the circumstances :( .

    I admire PMTM. She is back in her "zone" at PMQ. Competent, precise, polite and FAR TOO deferential to the HoC, its traditions and (some of) those smirking from the opposition front bench.

    She became leader with very little public exposure, relying on her reputation as a proficient administrator and organiser.

    Just as CMD should have stood-back from the EU negotiations and referendum that brought him down; PMTM should have put her colleagues "in-to-bat" during the election, all extolling her leadership values, whilst she remained aloof from all the nasty, grubby, campaigning.

    Someone now needs to coach PMTM, in the skills of "fighting dirty" if she is to counter the irresponsible driveling from the opposition.

    It is not her supporters that PMTM needs to impress or convince. They already trust her and appreciate her skills.

    Every PMQ should be regarded as an "election broadcast", and be full of sound bites that singularly - and OBVIOUSLY- ridicule Corbyn, and which the MSM would repeat . . .

  7. No he was being interviewed live on C4 so kept his mouth in check, though he did get a bit frothy at the end and my expectations rose but no dice. I reckon Jon Snow would have torn him a new one if he did. Still the whiff of anti-semitism follows him around wherever he goes these days.

  8. He daily displays an ineptness, lack of ability to think on his feet, blind adherence to his hatred and socialist left wing ideals, that make him an object of dread should he gain power.

  9. To be fair McDonnell is far worse than Corbyn, and likely to be PM in short order if Labour get in
  10. Quite the dreadful duo.

    The thought of them at the helm is really quite nauseating, though there are of course those to whom these two seem like knights in shining armour come to save us all.

    Excuse me for a mo......

    Nice bit about PMQs was May leaving pointing out that it was LABOUR who introduced Uni fees and student loans so that a Conservative MP could give that airtime after the Corbyn show was over.

    Just watching today's DP and poor John Pienaar can only just got into the chair they have supplied! He don't look too comfy. :cool:
  13. Jack Dromey - what a pillock!

    AN said "I've asked you three times, and you've still not answered . . we'll move on"!

    . . . whilst trying to establish WHY Dromey was blaming Tory leadership rhetoric for the "unacceptable" abuse currently been heaped upon Labour politicians by/from, the "hard left".

    To be honest I don't think Brillo expected an answer, but it was nice to see Mr Harman put in an uncomfortable place :twisted:
