Don't you believe it - I'm as cynical as the rest of them, I'm only saying that in that nest of vipers otherwise known as Brussels, Donald Tusk came across as one of the few decent ones.
I agree. Impressive display of emotional intelligence in a non-native language.

One of my other cynical tenets is "They don't get into positions like that by being nice to people".

That's true - one of the first things I was told by an Army instructor was 'it is not what you do in life that counts, it is the image you project'. There are still a significant number of people who will not hear a word said against Jeremy Corbin. You can fool some of the people all of the time....

Well, that Labour bloke is a slimy turd, isn't he? Good to see Marr giving him a grilling.
I didn’t see it and don’t know who was on. I tried to guess but you haven’t given much of a clue. I can’t think of any Labour bloke that isn’t a slime turd.

Jonathan Ashworth, Shadow Health Secretary.
His default position on Covid19 is to begin each sentence with a comment about “not politicising the situation, supporting the Government blah, blah”, then doing exactly the opposite.

Ashworth?? I suspect he is as much use as a fart in a wind tunnel.
Another Shadow Minister who knows he is in his last week in the job!

Something I've noticed over the last few weeks is the rise of certain types of post on social media.

Yesterday, the one doing the rounds was a piece of film from the House of Commons showing Tory MPs 'cheering at voting not to pay nurses more'.

The reality was that they were cheering at knocking back a Labour motion which was unworkable but designed to provoke. The House voted to up nurses' pay three months later when it was possible to do so.

But the post was wrapped in quotes about 'evil, selfish Tory scum' and so on.

People are blindly re-posting this stuff and lapping it up.

I don't see this as coincidental. I think there's an orchestrated campaign going on underneath, the tone of which is 'The Tories have slashed NHS spending and that's why they're having to do what they're doing now'.

It's rubbish, of course. The Tories have increased spending. But Labour is in a fix; the Tories are doing a good job of Covid-19 and Johnson is doing a good job of leading. That doesn't do Labour well in the polls - at all - so the lies and disinformation campaign has started.

There's no shame with this lot.

I don’t know what you mean. The COVID19 crisis has proved that Corbyn and his cronies got it right. I heard him and any number of other fantasists say so.

Socialists and communists are great at this sort of thing. Look how successfully they cleared up after the Chernobyl disaster. Boris and the Tories, sorry, evil Tories wouldn’t have been able to cope with that.

To give some gender balance, Kate Hoey is a decent MP too.

Damn. I was hoping that this was a thread watching for further deterioration in the health of Mr Marr.

No?

Just me then.

Apropos of nothing, anyone know where a person could buy a voodoo doll?
