What Conservative Party? We haven't got one.
 
The Guardian is totally losing its shit over BJ... Matthew Dancona now comparing him to Enoch Powell

"I think – no, I insist – that this is nothing short of deplorable, and that this confrontation poses greater long-term dangers than Powell’s speech in 1968. It is a founding principle of any pluralist society that in our permanent negotiation with one another we strive to be decent and dignified."

The same Guardian that has already been hauled over the coals for their own reporting/ commenting on the burka/niqab?
 
And Boris essentially regurgitating the words of Polly Toybox with his latest!

Tame stuff. I remember Laurie Penny, the Guardian's in-house voice of a generation, equating austerity to the Holocaust. She must have been off protesting when her class did WW2 in GCSE history at Cheltenham Ladies College.

Then there's Owen Jones, the Guardian's in-house, err, feck knows what he is but he's not a journalist. He told us I militarily, support the IRA against the British State. Can't help wondering what the IRA would have done to a gay, upper middle class Oxbridge tw@t had Owen ever met the IRA. Fisking Owen's output in the comments section is developing into a sport on the Guardian as his outraged hyperbole becomes ever more detached from reality.

Paul Mason, the Guardian's (former) in-house Wolfie Smith impersonator, is the very hardest former music teacher among the shock troops of the far left. Paul managed to land the gig as economics editor on Newsnight despite having no relevant qualifications or experience. Perhaps being described as Britain's only Trotskyist economist was the only qualification required. As Paul turns into a caricature of himself, he has lost his column at the Guardian as well as his editorial job on Channel 4 News.

The Guardian isn't a newspaper, it's a political campaign and many of its columnists aren't journalists, they're campaigners. This is reflected in the fact that 10 people were shot in Manchester last night and the Guardian's front page is consumed with stories about how racist Boris Johnson and Donald Trump are.

YouTube David Starkie v Laurie Penny for an amusing debate where she got her arse handed to her on a plate!

Edit:

She clearly said near the end that she had used an unreasonable fee as an excuse to avoid confrontation. In other words she feels justified in lying twice. As audience member shouted "you started it" and a bloke shook Starkey's hand. Excellent.
 
YouTube David Starkie v Laurie Penny for an amusing debate where she got her arse handed to her on a plate!

Edit:

Armchair revolutionaries, particularly those who have gone down the public school and Oxbridge road, have a habit of getting their arrses handed to them.

Laurie's fondness for writing utter, utter boleaux is matched only by her seeming descent into whatever is the medical term for being a Walter Mitty.

Not content with writing books about rape, living in poverty and much else of which she has no experience, Laurie churns out cr@p articles about her amazing double life on the front line of revolutionary socialism and simultaneously on undercover assignments among the right wing elites that apparently run the country.

I remember one of her articles where she described attendance at a Conservative Youth reception and having to wear a long dress because she'd been "beaten black and blue" by the police that very morning. In another article, she apparently saved the life of some minor celebrity in New York despite suffering with a poisonous spider bite.

I fear Laurie may be the secret offspring of Baron Castleshortt. This may explain why less and less of her output is of the paid for variety and more and more of it is self published blog fodder. Despite being an editor, she hasn't written for the New Statesman in six months.

Things appear to have gotten so bad for Laurie that she now has a Patreon page, the tech equivalent of a scruffy dog and a seat on the pavement outside Waitrose while saying "Spare some change guv." Our girl knows she's worth it and she lists what you'll get in return for your donation.

For $250 per month, she'll go out to dinner with you!

For somebody who purports to be an authority on rape and all things mysoginistic, Laurie seems spectacularly ignorant of the fact that young women who get paid to go on dates aren't called journalists, they're called something else. It's likely that some of her "dates" will be expecting quite a bit more than a trip to Nandos in return for their cash.

Take a tip Laurie. It's time to find yourself a rich husband. No doubt Boris will be back on the market in the near future.

David Starkey was one of my tutors many years ago. A gentler man you could hardly expect to meet. So for him to launch like that is, for me a clear combat indicator of what a horrid cow she must be. Still would though (if in possession of enough Harry Black).

Back to Mrs M. My take, in spite of her rising to be PM, is that she is fundamentally a weak character. She will bully those over whom she perceives herself to have an advantage, but if anyone stands up to her, her instinct is to cave in and grovel. We have seen this over and over in the Brexit negotiation, starting with an offer of a massive bribe which has been followed by giving way to almost every challenge. All along each maudlin surrender is grasped by the EU which gives nothing in turn, just comes back for more, which is duly handed over. Roll on the 'disaster' of a total, clean, no-deal Brexit with all these capitulations wiped out.

We need a leader who will stand up to the EU and fight our corner.

I don't recognise your description of PMTM at all. I've come to the conclusion she was selected as the "best of the worst" (and of course she isn't BJ) and is someone who relies heavily on advice from SPADs as she is that paranoid and lacking in confidence she believes her Cabinet and MPs are all out to stab her in the back over the slightest thing (even the biscuits at NAAFI break).

She appears to want her Cabinet colleagues, MPs and foreign dignitaries to like her, as a pal and a woman of substance, rather than respect her as a successful political figure and will allow herself to be out manoevred because she either isn't sufficiently briefed in depth on potential discussion topics or she can't retain and use the information she is given.

Being a Remoaner, she will mentally discard anything the Brexiteers say whilst appearing to support them until the point her SPADs inform her to do something else instead.

I am a Brexiteer and was hoping for a well worked out and mutually beneficial arrangement for our leaving, I'm no longer hopeful and believe a no deal Brexit may be the best option for the UK, bearing in mind Scotland & Wales won't be happy but they can always go along the independance route.
