Boris got rhetorically fist fucked in UK parliament today

Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the main opposition Labour Party, lambasted the weakened Johnson and accused him of “riding roughshod” over the constitution in order to crash Britain out of the EU without a deal.


“He isn't winning friends in Europe. He's losing friends at home. His is a government with no mandate, no morals and, as of today, no majority,” Corbyn said.

This was a tactic to identify internal rebels and purge them ahead of an election.

They knew they didn’t have the votes.

I wasn't even aware Boris Johnson had a brother in politics. The resemblance is crazy too.

He looks exactly like Boris.

At least, Boris from an alternate universe where he combs his hair and isn't an obese alcoholic.

Western world really is waking up to the Russian funded populist horseshit


Italy’s new government was sworn in on Thursday after the pro-European Democratic Party (PD) joined the anti-establishment Five Star Movement (M5S) in an unlikely alliance that has forced the far-right out of power.


Giuseppe Conte, the independent prime minister, led his new team of seven women and 14 men in a swearing-in ceremony in the presidential palace.




Mr Conte’s first, 14-month-long coalition, collapsed after his right-wing League partner, led by Matteo Salvini, pulled out in the hope of triggering an early election he was certain his party would win.

However, Mr Salvini failed to foresee that M5S and the PD would put aside their differences and form an unlikely alliance.
Italian politics is goofy at the best of times, but it's another piece of good news to put on the slowly building pile.

If somehow we get a new Brexit referendum AND trump taken down in 2020, suddenly things could look pretty sweet again.

You do realize that 5 Star movement is pretty anti establishment right?
