The more people use the term "remoaner" the more determined remainers are to overturn Brexit.

It's human nature, if you insult someone they will do the opposite to what you want.

And I am not being facetious.

:)

So feeling insulted is more important than upholding a democratic vote then? Nice.

Obviously, both are factors.

As to upholding a democratic vote, I'll not get involved in that again, save to say that I do not believe that democracy has been served on the Brexit issue.

Up to you dude but it didn't seem to do America's economy after the new deal, or Germany or Japan's post war economies too much harm. I appreciate you saying you can see through javid's paper thin motivation. He's not a one nation Tory. He's just a narrow self interest Tory.

Totally unlike his successor ......😂

Indeed.

I won't bother explaining the same thing over and over again in response to the same old questions, rather I shall get behind (and donate to) rejoin when that campaign gains some momentum.

Sunak studied at the exclusive private school Winchester College before going on to Oxford University to read Philosophy, Politics and Economics, a tried and trusted route for aspiring Westminster politicians. Before entering politics he worked for investment bank Goldman Sachs...


Marvellous.

Philosophy, Politics and Economics.

Why content yourself with one useless degree when you can study three, part-time?

The grounds I have for limited optimism are the new guy's birth date - 1980 - and the fact his constituency is on the north.

Good point and to be fair because he is beyond filthy lucre chasing could make unpopular decisions with the builders and bankers

Here's my 2¢.

  • I'm quietly optimistic. 
  • Javid was a standard run of the mill, unthinking neo-liberal who just thinks about keeping house prices high and doesn't really consider the future beyond 4 years.
  • Rishi Sunak is a non-entity and has clearly been put in as a puppet while Dominic Cumming really pulls the strings.
  • I've listened to a lot of Dominic Cummings speeches and read a fair bit of his blog. He does think beyond the 4 year election cycle and is cognizant of the potential debt, demographic, social problems which are bubbling away and could become huge.
  • Dominic Cummings is a sort of autistic genius and there is some hope that he has good intentions for the country - time will tell if this is right.

I wonder if Sunak will make any changes to the Budget, and if so will the changes be publicised as a Sunak change?

Terrible but necessary😆

Question:  If Javid resigned because he wouldn't sack his special advisers...

Who, exactly, were the special advisers he would not sack?

Do we know their names?

I think there's a significant rump of neo liberal anti brexit professionals who would see nothing wrong with screwing up the post brexit government in the slightest, and try to keep us tied as closely as possible with the EU thru hell and high water. I suspect that there is only one way to deal with this and get rid. I can also see more why Theresa May had such a difficult job to do.

Thanks for the opinion.  Can you answer the specific question - i.e. provide the names of the advisors who were "required gone"?

From the Daily Fail:

The Chancellor's six-strong team includes Mats Persson, a former head of the Open Europe think-tank and adviser to David Cameron - the ex-PM who once described Mr Cummings as 'career psychopath'.  Other aides include Samuel Coates, who previously worked at ConservativeHome, media adviser Tim Sculthorpe, Adam Memon and Jennifer Powell. Sajid Javid pictured at the party conference in Manchester last September with his senior advisors including Tim Sculthorpe

The revolving door of housing ministers continued yesterday with the sacking of Esther McVey after just seven months in the role and the appointment of her successor, Christopher Pincher... McVey, a former TV presenter, was appointed last July and will be little remembered from her short stint –  setting up an expert council to support technological innovation in the property sector, extending Help to Buy mortgages from 25 to 35 years and providing funding for the development of carbon-free homes in Yorkshire.
