 Sunak announcement

Seems a lot like a right wing government just announced it`s not going to stand for a left wing MP being elected.

Sunak claims "mob rule" when he and his predecessor as prime minister were not elected by the British people.

George Galloway will tear these weasels apart in the House of Commons.

If a `state of emergency" is declared elections can be cancelled.

I wouldn`t put anything past this lot!🤔🤬🤬🤬

The Tories seem to be adopting their old trick of fighting the election as if they were the Opposition. `The country`s in a hell of a mess and we`re the only party who can fix it`. It`s worked for them before.

George Galloway left wing? That`s a good one, his social views are about as far right as you can get in parliament.

They just might as well be closed

Just look at Twitter these days - ironically all of the right wing journos/commentators are brazenly asking where the right wing mob are - completely negating the fact they are it and are deliberately stoking the fire.

From what I can see the likes of Darren Grimes, Laurence Fox, Joey Barton and Matt le Tossier want to rise up against the establishment, and that Englands on a knife edge of civil war breaking out between the EDL and the Muslim/black population - but will it ever happen? Doubtful as they are all keyboard warriors.

His speech in Aberdeen was quite decisive as well, implying that English incomers were under threat from Scottish nationalists!

Mind you he said that he expected Tories to make gains in Scotland!🤣🤣🤣

I enjoyed Josh Kerr draping himself with the Saltire instead of the Union Flag after winning the World Indoor 3000m in Glasgow last night.

Playing up to the home crowd and fair play to him.

Kerr was running for team GB. Saltire stunt pathetically parochial

He was wearing a GB vest but he`s still a Scotsman. It`s incredible that a wee country of just over 5 million souls can produce a world champion in an event like that. The rest of the UK can bask in our reflected glory!

Well we’ve got a bigger population than Jamaica and they’ve had some world champions (not in the bobsleigh admittedly).

Well done, Jamaica! They are independent and manage to make their mark on world athletics. I often wonder how people throughout the world view the UK and its constituent parts. It must be confusing that we compete in the Olympics as GB but in the World Cups of football and rugby as separate nations, for example.

They probably view the UK as the place that gave the world all these sports.

Team GB is admittedly confusing because the Northern Irish can choose GB or Ireland, and Mark Cavendish was on team GB despite being from the Isle of Man which is neither GB nor UK.

But then Jamaica competes as part of the West Indies in cricket.

Oh dear, TOWK. Far-right? You have got to be having a laugh. He was born strict RC, and I think he is married to a Muslim. He says he has never drunk alcohol, and he has a record of standing up for his principles, whether that is fighting Israeli apartheid, opposing the Iraq War or supporting unpopular regimes in Russia, Venezuela, Iraq, China and Syria.

Yes, he has done some damn stupid things, like Big Brother, and he has riled a lot of influential people, but few have managed to prove anything more than stupidity; critics who claimed he was corrupt found out the hard way in libel courts that he would firmly stand by his principles.

Love or loath him, don`t for a minute accuse him of being "far-right". He holds to traditional social views that may belong to conservative Catholicism or the Muslim faith, but are those social views any more radical than those of Kate Forbes` Free Church of Scotland? Would you call her "far-right"?

And anyway, how do you define "social issues"? If you are talking about abortion, same-sex marriage, and transgender rights, you can be "far-left" and opposed to those issues, too.

Indeed. When it comes to certain issues the far left and far right often align. A man of principles? If so he wouldn`t have spent so much of his life toadying up to and praising some of histories worst monsters.

Depends what the principles in question are.

Hating gay people is a principle, and George has stuck to that one unwaveringly.

Interesting sponsors as he took the oath of allegiance in the House of Commons - Sir Peter Bottomley (Tory) and Neale Hanvey (Alba).

Purely coincidentally, both of them will feature as answers on Pointless to the question "MPs who weren`t re-elected in 2024".
