The behaviour of Jeremy Corbyn yesterday is indicative of a new low in the conduct of British politicians suggests Matthew Steeples
Yesterday in the House of Commons, yah-boo politics reared its ugly head when Jeremy Corbyn allegedly called Theresa May “a stupid woman.”
In spite of Corbyn now claiming he simply referenced “stupid people,” this storm-in-a-teacup is indicative of the low level British politics have reached. As we face an impasse on May’s completely fudged handling of the disaster that is Brexit, do we need to have to witness this kind of behaviour by a man meant to be the leader of Her Majesty’s Official Opposition?
Elsewhere, Amber Rudd was sent on Sky News this morning to proclaim “the public don’t want another election and Brenda from Bristol especially doesn’t.” What does she want instead? She was not at all clear and later, on Adam Boulton’s All Out Politics, Lord Lamont suggested we’re headed for a second referendum or a “managed no deal.” The man who sang in the bathtub as the pound crashed on Black Wednesday in 1992 made out “all will likely be fine,” but the public rightly see something else: An almighty bloody mess.
It is time for a change: We need a plan and we need solutions. We do not need yet more excuses.

If a picture is truly worth a thousand words then this one of these two tells us all we need to know….a couple of inadequate dimwits too stupid to understand just how stupid they are. God help the UK if these cretins get power
“It is time for a change: We need a plan and we need solutions.”
Is there a solution that can, at a stroke, erase the anti-EU sentiment that runs through Britain? Sure, calling the referendum (voted through by Labour, too) may now be regarded as a mistake by the political establishment, but if they hadn’t called it, UKIP and other anti-EU groups would still be on the rise.
Surely the argument is bigger than mere trade minutiae and immigration, being really about ever-increasing globalisation versus the preservation of the nation state. Neither position is necessarily ‘bad’ – although globalisation might be a hard thing to sell to ordinary people, even those who currently consider themselves ‘remainers’.
A second referendum or ‘people’s vote’ won’t make all this go away. The conflict was, and is, baked into the UK and many other countries.
The only solution is to be honest about globalisation, and what the alternatives might be, and maybe then a democratic consensus could emerge – but the globalists may not like it. Concealing the true EU end game (whatever it might be – I’d love to know) will only lead to permanent disagreement or conflict.
Well I’m no TM supporter but when Corbyn Carrie’s on like that, he loses all credibility as far as I’m concerned.
Hire the required workers, assemble houses that’ll encourage
people in and keep them happy when they exist; all with the supreme purpose of producing just as much Euros as
