Clearly she needs to molest children.

She's said she's here to stay, which probably means she'll be gone by the end of the month.

Beer Stormer recently attended the Navrati festival and in a true Kinnockism, claimed solidarity with Hindus and vowed to combat "Hinduphobia."

He's been to two synagogues. Even wore the little hat. That proves something.

Chief Whip out as government folds on fracking revolt

https://www.spectator.co.uk/article/wha ... king-vote-
Wendy Morton has been sacked as chief whip after the government folded on the opposition day fracking vote being treated as a ‘confidence issue’. MPs were warned they would lose the Tory whip if they didn’t vote with the government. One MP who witnessed Morton walking past with the Prime Minister’s PPS, tells me: ‘She’s as mad as thunder and is saying ‘unbelievable’.’ Craig Whittaker has just come out of the lobby and said ‘I am fucking furious and I don’t give a fuck anymore.’

Home Secretary has resigned too.

Third shortest incumbent. Managed to outlast the Duke of Wellington though. That should go on the C.V.

You might think that Grant Shapps, who used a fake name in order to pose as a "millionaire web marketer" running a get-rich-quick scheme, and then lied about it for three years, would be the last Tory MP to be put in charge of law, order and security in the UK.

Well, you'd be wrong. Six weeks after TEH Liz fired him from his position as Transport Secretary.

Wow, that was fast.

Liz Truss Goes From "Not A Quitter" To "Can't Deliver" In 24 Hours: UK PM With Shortest Tenure
Liz Truss will go down as the UK Prime Minister with the shortest time in office — 45 days when she announced her resignation today, plus a week or so until a new leader is chosen.
The ruling Conservative Party will elect its new leader within the next week, until which time she will remain the PM, she said. Counting that too, Liz Truss, who'd succeeded Boris Johnson, would remain much behind the earlier shortest tenure — 119 days served by George Canning in 1827, his tenure cut short by death.

Brought down by her inability to cut taxes amid a price-rise, Liz Truss was in office for a shorter duration than the time it took for her election as the party leader.

https://www.spiked-online.com/2022/10/2 ... wasteland/

“Her premiership deserves to live in ignominy. Not necessarily because her blunders were so spectacular – though many of them were – but because of what this strangled-at-birth stint in Downing Street tells us about British politics more broadly. Which is that it’s a wasteland. An ideological void. A dustbowl of ideas. The lack of even the faintest glimmer of leadership material anywhere in the Westminster circus is horrifying to me. Trussism is but a symptom of a wider malady afflicting our political class.”

She can join Matt Patricia, Dan Quinn, Bill O'Brien is she is lucky.

Otherwise, she is Rex Ryan, Eric Mangina, and, well, any Jets coach.

Really, given her political future, she should get wasted and declare herself, "Lizzy Fuckin' Football."

Liz now gets £110,000 ($125,000) a year for life as an ex-Prime Minister.

For 44 days work. That was a clusterfuck. Nice work if you can get it.

That also means if she was in the Democratic party in the US and associated with the Clintons, she would earn about $20,000.
