Aye. If any of you lot vote for the austerity enabling lib dems because they're remain I'll no be happy - when there's a literal socialist alternative in labour who might also be shite but better than neolib service cutting NHS privatising 5 quid bus ticket increasing sure start closing lib dems. That stuff is bigger than brexit.

wouldn't calling an election mean that parliament just gets dissolved instead of prorogued, thus essentially forcing the UK past the deadline one way or another?

Well I'm not sure of the exact timing. But Boris will probably get a pretty solid majority of seats given how fucked Labour is. Latest polls put Labour voters rating Boris more highly than Corbyn in some categories. Interestingly, if the Brexiters don't need the DUP, it opens up the way for a deal with the EU and Ireland, because the Brexiters obviously don't actually give a fuck about Northern Ireland. So Boris' Brexit might oddly end up less shit for Ireland and other non-England places.

Corbyn successfully out manuveurs Johnson to prevent no deal - and gets zero credit, particularly from the hysterical pro EU middle classes (because he's a socialist not a neolib and they see that as a threat)

Now Bojo saying he'll break the law, but privately hinting he'll resign

If so it's a true decimation of the etonian cunt

The brexit shite has really taken a turn, with Johnson proroguing parliament - and now that being deemed unlawful

And then the implosion of the tories, with Johnson losing his majority of 1 - and then sabotaging it further by kicking 20 odd more cunts out. Brexit has always been a tory crisis and nothing more.

Mad times

Interesting speech today by Tom Watson.

Yeah he's piped up again now no deal is off the table. He's being funded by various rich cunts who've a vested interest in staying in the EU and "taking back control" of the labour party from the socialists.

He took half a mil from Max Mosley in less than a year https://www.theguardian.com/politics/20 ... -past-year. That's serious money, and Mosley expects a lot in return, that's why the cunt never shuts up now. But it's money well spent if a neolib like Watson takes over the labour party / PMship and reverses Corbyn's policies on taxing the rich, industry, improving workers rights etc

He's also taking money from the rich developer / neolib centrist piece of shit that founded the failed Change UK https://morningstaronline.co.uk/article ... -uk-funder and also from the israeli propaganda arm Friends of Israel

He's just an all round cunt really, on the side of the rich

Brexit’s right there, showing Europe’s centrists what you get for pandering to the right and yet

Liberals will do that, as they have done historically. Don't expect any independent moral stand point from em. They straddle both sides, in this case socially liberal neoliberalism vs fascism. And the end result is some fascism. So it's the EU allowing genocide in the med, then privatising the refugees that survive so they can give big contracts to G4S to run the squalid internment camps. It's allowing Hungary to go full on fash, and doing nothing about it. But then look at what they did to Greece; starved em into submission.

Cos at the end of the day they both want to preserve capitalism, which is why liberals are willing to accommodate em.
