    We have companies at insane valuations - is Apple really worth the same as every company in the FTSE combined?, Is Telsa worth more than Ford and Toyota combined?

    I'd say this has got even worse with Meme stocks, NFTs and sh*tcoin

    Football fans warned they could lose ‘all their money’ on NFTs..

    We're supposed to do backflips because the BoE raised rates by a fraction of a percent in the face of near double digit inflation?

    1/3 of the workforce on state support - with no glide path.  It's either extend-n-pretend or face a cliff edge of redundancies

    I got this wrong - Furlough saved jobs and shows that massive state intervention can help.  Let's not kid ourselves this wasn't Tory largesse for workers - it was to save rich owners from crashing.

    COVID restrictions are dead in the water;

        Government p*ssed away any moral authority with Cummings 'specsaver' visit
        Track n Trace is being ignored (and badged with the NHS to take the fall)
        The NHS was denied the breathing space and resources to prepare after wave 1 in April

    I think we can agree that BoJo's Tories have no moral authority

    If you dig into the data behind the recent polls it's not that 2019 Tory voters are switching to Labour, it's that they are switching to don't know/would not vote.

    I suspect these voters are disappointed that the Tories under Boris Johnson haven't been as right wing/nationalist as they would have liked. I would also guess that this will be easily remedied in time for the next general election, the Tories just need to go hard on the anti-immigration rhetoric which Labour will never be able to outflank them on and those voters will come back.

    The problem is the little word Accountability - it's all well and good giving the rhetoric of having Gunboats to shoot dighnies, but when more are coming over under the Tories than Labour, then words become hollow.

    I don't agree the Tory Ultras are the King makers, either - it's more the Tory central voters who liked BoJo as a CoMmOn SeNsE ChAp aGaInSt ThE elItEs (never mind about his background).  They've seen what the Rabid right is like and can't be bothered to support them, but the gulf to Labour is too large so they stay at home.

    I heard a guy called Boris Johnson blagged his way into taking over the country...

  4. Brexit: One year on, the economic impact is starting to show

     

    The business owners I spoke to have pretty much the same reflection on different aspects of the reality of one year of trading outside the Single Market and Customs Union. It's clearly been challenging: "Frustrating. Scary. Huge drop in sales. Rendered uncompetitive in Europe."

    When I put to them what ministers have suggested privately - that some sections of British business need to be as prepared as the best-prepared bigger businesses, it got a little testy.

    Unhappy New Year for Boris? Six in 10 Britons want PM ousted

    After grim run of sleaze allegations, 'Partygate' and Covid infighting a poll for MailOnline found broad support for the Tories getting rid of Mr Johnson as leader - with 25 per cent backing the idea and another 35 per cent saying they felt 'strongly' it was the right thing.

    Daily Mail

    Blame it all on BoJo then oust him in Summer so the Tories bask in a post Omicron bounce?

    I think this is partly down to demographics as we are now reaching the stage where more boomers are retiring than the number of school leavers replacing them? A lot of people also took early retirement and never returned to work after being furloughed.

    Also, the massive amount of borrowing to achieve this will be a drag on the economy for decades to come.

    Ah, so we should be grateful to Boomers for moving out of the way???

    Erm, you do know the Tories have created over 75% of the national debt - you might want to rethink your idea that the free market doesn't drag on the economy.

     

    Enjoy your cheese and wine 'meeting'..

    If the situation gets any more desperate for Conservatives I expect Bono to do a Christmas Aid single appeal for them.

    For just 2 votes a month you could help keep an endangered species like a Tory leader in a job. Did you know we a losing Tory leaders at an alarming rate and with climate change affecting their natural habitat they are more endangered than ever. The species has nearly died out in Scotland due to competition with the red and yellow species of leader.

    An active breeding programme using an elderly male in Westminster, Boris, has produced two offspring and many more in the wild, but now he too is threatened by a common disease that often strikes down already weakened members of the species - sleaze. A degenerative disease that reduces their inhibition to brown envelopes and stupidity

    So far artificial attempts to propogate the species have failed, resulting in purple off-shoots prone to madness and drooling.

    The current population supported by a symbiotic relationship with Sycophantus Moronicus providing support when called with a distinct trill of 3 word slogans (Get Br*xit Done, Control our Borders, Build Back Better).  The relationship has  confused scientists as the return for support, the symbiotes receive nothing but excrement which they lap up with glee.

    I think they tolerate them in lower positions but as leader of the country ? Your average knuckle dragging numbnut to your Jeremy Clarkson types would be spitting . Don't think the Royals would be too happy about it either , personally I wouldn't mind seeing it just for the reaction. Scratch the surface and the UK has a large percentage of intolerant racists especially amongst the right wing.

    Javid is seen as Osbourne's man so he's fooked.

    As for foreign interference well Boris was a flagged security risk and Tory Russian donors so go figure. What kills her chance is talk tough deliver ****** all and they blame her over boat crossings as she hasn't deployed the SBS and gunships...

    HAHAHA  ah the problem with spouting populist drivel AND being in charge....

    The problem is they have all backed Johnson to the hilt and in doing so have lost any credibility. A week is a long time in politics and Johnson has already began spontaneously combusting. They know they have to ditch him or he brings them all down . The job is a poison chalice , Starmer doesn't want it at the moment and the Tory front runners know the future is bleak . Gove is a liability due to cocaine history , Raab and Truss are village idiots and Patel and Sunak would have the Gammonati imploding . Jeremy Hunt has been very quiet of late so that's who I would put money on . 

    So long as Patel or Sunak spout Gammon policies they'll be fine.. Patel is already there but is tainted by Foreign interference.  Sunak is tainted by Associated.  Javid has a chance, since is resigned from BoJo and Cummings, but he isn't seen as 'one of us' by your Gammonati (love that term!)

    I'm not so sure.  Governments usually lose by-elections - although this one was particularly disappointing the fact the sitting MP resigned due to sleaze makes it a tough one to win - but PMs don't usually resign over them.

    I think he will be PM throughout 2022.

    The time to put forward the smart new face who can do better at the 2024 election (if the Tories wanted to go that way) is in 2023, when the pandemic has subsided.  If by then Boris is tainted by Brexit and Pandemic bad memories, ditch him THEN. 

    Don't ditch him now and let the new man get tarnished by the same brush.

    I think the Tories will try to pin any flak directly on BoJo to let the new guy come in clean - Starmer will be all out trying to pin the flak on ALL Tories saying the party can't be trusted.

    So the question is who is there to show the Tories can be trusted?
