UK Politics: Misery, The Sequel

Discussion in 'Off Topic' started by bestinase, Jul 21, 2020.

  1. I wish Angela Rayner was leader, and not deputy. She's articulate, interpersonal and I feel she has actual lived experience as opposed to a typically educated and privileged individual.

    As great as Keir is at question time in the house of commons, he doesn't scream gravitas and personality for anyone to vote for him as PM.

    The voting intention thing... isn't surprising. The irony it's that stuff like the furlough scheme that is the cause when you know that if Labour had enacted it in power then the Conservatives would be crowing about how necessary it would be to reopen the economy and how they were stealing Christmas with lockdowns etc, etc. Ironically, the pandemic probably slowed the Conservatives' descent into fascism... if only for a while. And Labour are a mess, so it can't be that surprising that they're still struggling for a majority.

  6. I literally can't stand Matt Hancock, I start to rage every time he's on screen. It's not even about the garbage that comes out of his mouth, I just can't stand to look at him. He looks like your 14-year-old brother dressed as your 44-year-old dad for Halloween.

    If I have to eat one of the mysteriously sourced pizzas they were offering in The Yard last time I was there just to have a festive white wine....

  8. So basically

    Tier 1 = old Tier 2
    Tier 2 = old Tier 3
    Tier 3 = old Tier 3, with additional restrictions

    They really didn't wanna introduce a tier 4 huh

    I'm still not over their obscene law to slap fines on anyone leaving the higher tier areas. Were there hordes of Glaswegians picking up Covid and racing round the NC500 spreading it as far and as wide as possible for them to have decided that was a necessary step? It's something out of a dystopian nightmare to me.
  13. Yeah the travel ban law is awful and good luck to them actually imposing it. It’s going to have as much impact as the restrictions on the central belt ie hardly any.

  14. Honestly with students returning home and the new Christmas rules were about to see announced I’m dreading January and February more than ever.

    It seems like there’s an agreement between the 4 nations, but this feels like a PR move more than a public health decision.

  19. The best part of this whole saga (the credit for success of really goes to Labour MSP Monica Lennon who led a brilliant cross society campaign on it) was the SNP Ministers originally opposing it on the grounds that, seriously, hoardes of English people would cross the border to sweep up free sanitary products in a new phenomenon of "Tampon Tourism". They were also worried people would take all the free stuff and sell them on a new black market for cheap, like when people nick stuff from supermarkets and try and sell you a pack of bacon out a carrier bag in the pub for 60p.

    But as every other party supported it and it was going to pass anyway they changed their mind and saw sense to swing in behind it and help make it work. A good thing.
