May's snap election call in Britain
« on: April 18, 2017, 06:14:15 pm »
May just challenged Corbyn to go to the polls in an early election, Corbyn-despite waffling on Brexit and currently displaying the charisma and popularity of a wet moldy sock, agreed. The Lib Dems are also keen.

I can't stand the Tories but it's a smart play, Labour are weak and disorganized, Corbyn clearly wishes this whole Brexit thing would just go away and the Lib Dems are hungrily eyeing both Labour and Tory seats-though a shitload of people probably distrust them with good reason after that whole "coalition with the Tories" thing.

Be interesting to see how this shitshow plays out.

The SNP are probably licking their chops at the thought of a) taking 58 if not all 59 Scottish seats, b) calling a snap election in Scotland after May pushes through a hard Brexit, and c) calling a new independence referendum.
Quote from: William Lyon Mackenzie King
There are few men in this Parliament for whom I have greater respect than the leader of the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation. I admire him in my heart, because time and again he has had the courage to say what lays on his conscience, regardless of what the world might think of him. A man of that calibre is an ornament to any Parliament.

Quote from: Drago Musevini's 'Manifesto'
Absolute power corrupts absolutely. Which is a problem. If you are powerless.

May as well get the popcorn. The US and Britain are putting on one hell of a show.

It isn't often we see a combination of comedy and tragedy, but that's exactly what we're seeing in the current state of politics.

The only time I ever saw this level of dark humor was on Dr. Strangelove.

As FSTDT's main page can testify, Corbyn does not have the best people loyal to him - honestly, I am hoping rational heads manage to make some leads and inroads in Britain.

That, and get those wackobirds quoted out of Labor.
