NO SYMPATHY for MAY's Tears

Owen Jones responds

Political commentator Owen Jones, who identifies as gay, appeared on Sky News to discuss Theresa May’s tearful resignation.

Sky News presenter Adam Boulton asked during a TV segment: ‘Owen, you say you don’t have much sympathy for her?’

Jones then replied: ‘I’ve got less than no sympathy for her.

‘She didn’t publicly break down publicly over the victims of Windrush, who, because of her policies, were driven from their homes, denied medical care, and even kicked out the country.

‘She didn’t cry publicly over the dozens of working class people who burned to death in Grenfell Tower. She didn’t weep publicly over those who’ve had their benefits stripped from them, those driven to food banks, because of her policies. The victims of universal credit.

‘I think our media can often express much more sympathy for the powerful – in her case, she will lead a no doubt comfortable and affluent life to her very end, rather than the victims of their policies, who I’m afraid have been driven into misery, insecurity and turmoil as a direct result,’ Jones said.

Reporter: ‘Can’t you just respond on a human level?’

Boulton then asked: ‘Can’t you just respond on a human level?’

Jones responded: ‘I have responded on a human level.

‘I’ve spoken about the humanity of those who have suffered as a consequence of her policies and I wish the news would give far more space to them rather than spending time discussing the prime minister crying because she can no longer hold the most powerful job in the country,’ he said.

Many people took to Twitter to share Jones’ sentiment in condemning Theresa May’s policies and to share the video.

One tweet has almost 200,000 likes and 60,000 retweets, at the time of writing.

Jones then tweeted: ‘Don’t feel sorry for Theresa May. Feel sorry for the victims of her policies.’

Well well well... I never thought I would find myself agreeing with anything that plonker said :)

Just had to listen to Malcolm Rifkind on BBC given carte blanche to rant for a good 10-15 minutes uninterrupted repeating himself over and over like some deranged loon that Parliament couldn't agree a deal and wouldn't allow us to leave without a deal and therefore the only democratic course of action was to ...yes you've guessed it...Have a People's vote.

The BBC scum really are pulling out every stop ...

Rifkind was followed by another Remain nut job from Northern Ireland the newly elected Alliance Party MEP ...looks like she ate all the pies and then puked up her Remain rant for another 10 minutes.

The BBC is now Remain central on steroids with any token Leave viewpoint scoffed at and derided.

It's going to be an interesting summer. If these lunatics do get there way and we end up staying in the EU it's going to lead to violence somewhere down the road if we are forced into EU political integration through some Parliamentary stitch up....and not the kind you see exercised in riots but an organized resistance something like the IRA. That would be kind of ironic wouldn't it...because Sinn Fein the IRA's political representatives now can't get enough of their EU masters.

BoJo's Brexit coming

Prime Minister Johnson Purges Hardline Remainers from Cabinet, Prepares to Deliver Brexit in 99 Days’ Time

Boris Johnson has cleared out the Cabinet of hardline remainers and his critics, rewarding allies and appointing a number of Brexiteers to his government.

Prime Minister Johnson has recruited Brexiteers to top roles in his government, signalling that with 99 days to go, he is committed to taking the UK out of the EU on October 31st.

The wholesale clear-out of 18 ministers occurred throughout the day, with fervent Remainers and Jeremy Hunt-supporters being fired or resigning. The BBC’s Laura Kuenssberg remarked that “This is officially the biggest clear out of Cabinet without a change of party in power — more than half of them gone — [this is] not a reshuffle it’s a new government.”

Britain's Trump says: "You're Fired!"

New UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson fires nearly all of Theresa May’s Cabinet and replaces them with Brexit supporters

  • Boris Johnson has held his first meeting of his new-look Cabinet after bloodbath of Theresa May’s ministers
  • The incoming PM culled nearly two-thirds of predecessor’s team as he created a new Brexiteer group 
  • Many of the Vote Leave 2016 referendum team have been installed as top ranking ministers or advisers 
  • Mr Johnson told ministers they were all committed to leaving the EU on October 31 or earlier – ‘no ifs, no buts’

Boris Johnson today warned his new-look ‘Brexit Cabinet’ that Britain is at a ‘pivotal moment’ – and vowed that the country will leave the EU by the end of October ‘or earlier’.

The incoming PM gathered his team in No10 for the first time this morning after staging an unprecedented bloodbath of Theresa May‘s government, stripping out 17 of her ministers to create a group willing to go through with No Deal.

ComPost doesnt like it

Washington Post

An Eton-educated man whose career is a showreel of ineptitude and orchestrated blunder, heaped with a huge dose of confidence. This is how you might describe Britain’s new prime minister, Boris Johnson. The people around him aren’t much better. Celebrated for being “diverse,” his picks for the country’s “Great Offices of State” are united by their regressive views. Together, they represent some of the major problems in this country: an outdated class system, entrenched privilege and a fixation on diversity over racial equality. They are exactly the opposite of what Britain needs.

It’s difficult to understate how calamitous Johnson’s government could be. Not unlike his presidential counterpart in the United States, Britain’s new prime minister comes from the elite, purports to be a man of the people and has used flagrant racism and homophobia when he thinks it might be good for his image. Though he differs from President Trump in his pitch as a supposed “one nation” Conservative, he’s already been called “Britain Trump” by the president himself.

Incredibly there are still more than half the Cabinet (19 out of 33 ) who are remainers  . (25.30)

Many people fear that Boris will just try to get a concession on the backstop and then reheat the May surrender Treaty... In fact I think he has made it clear that is his strategy but...

It won't wash with Nigel Farage and the Brexit Party (37.45)

Boris is going to have to do better than some backstop fudge to satisfy the Leavers and neutralize the Brexit Party but how can he do that without enraging the remainer infested Parliament. Nigel thinks he has to go for an election and Jacob Rees-Mogg assures us all he has to do is nothing and we will leave by default on October 31st.

Poor old Sterling... It has fallen so much I actually find it fascinating to see how low it can go now.

For a trader Sterling must have been a one way bet for the last few years but one thing I have noticed about Sterling is that when it turns ..it turns really quickly. I wouldn't like to be the trader who gets caught napping.

It wouldn't surprise me if Sterling rises after Brexit....That's the kind of reverse psychology that rules the markets.

Snowflakes Offended... so he must be onto something Genuinely truthful

Snowflakes Crush ‘Rock’

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson may need to change his nickname.

The actor, producer and professional wrestler has been caught performing a humiliating and craven reverse ferret when he deleted a tweet praising his ‘namesake’ – Britain’s new prime minister Boris Johnson.

Boris-The-Rock-Johnson-640x480.png

His original tweet went:

“Breaking: PM Boris Johnson is in fact my cousin [though we clearly look more like twins].

“Jokes aside, PM did say something in his speech I liked – ‘the people are our bosses’.

100% agree. The people/audience/consumer will always matter most. #ourboss.”

But a quarter of an hour’s worth of attacks from the usual leftist suspects, the Rock quickly turned to jello and deleted his tweet.

Should be some strong support at $1.20.  And I may buy some calls there

lol.

gbp. forgot all about that pos.

gbp is deader than a argentinian peso surely.

Already only really good for buying dirty donner meat made from skinned rats.

Once London falls post no deal brexit there will likely be some decent upside. Other than that you should of been out of gbp more than 2 years ago.
