Why did Andrew RT go in the first place?
As much as I slam the people who did this, if the shoe were on the other foot and left wingers had stormed a Republican President's voting in - the left wingers in the UK would be congratulating them and calling them NATIONAL HEROES on Twitter. The double standards are clear. Personally, I believe in law and order and Trump only spurred on these actions with his vote rigging allegations.
He also struggled yesterday even reading his speech. I don't think he made it through 1 single line without messing up. Either he needs reading glasses or he needs to have a rest.
Trump should've gone quietly now, spent the next 4 years attacking Biden and building support in the swing states and then stood again in 2024. Trump's recent actions may have blown his chance of standing again, especially as he was never popular with the republican elite to begin with. A big flaw in the US system is not having a long-term leader of the opposition. In the UK we get to see what the alternative is all the time, in the US they only get about a year before the election to judge the possible replacements.
It's hard to disagree with you. But having lockdown now will further send Covid cases down which is obviously a good thing. Better to have a short national lockdown than months and months and months of 30% then 40% then 50% then 60% of the country being put into Tier 3.
IDS should return to government, but he makes more impact on the backbenches imo.
Oh totally agree with that. Redwood would be great in Biz or Treasury. But he's not PM material.
And Redwood would be incredibly popular with the electorate? As important as being good in the house of commons is, winning power and being able to actually implement policies is more important and Boris did that only a year ago. Redwood would've struggled to get 250 seats.
I find it funny when he attacks Starmer and co for "playing politics." And in the house of commons? Surely not! What would he be doing in Starmer's position?
"Mr Speaker, firstly I'd like to congratulate the PM on his excellent handling of this crisis. If he had to score himself a 9 or 10 on his own handling of the crisis which would he pick?"
Also known as Labour winning the next election. But hey, we all know Brexit is in safe hands with Labour :D especially with arch remainer Starmer now in charge.
