The charm, the magic, the charisma were well polished – and this is as good as the man gets on best behaviour after weeks of behind-the-scenes training. If you puzzle as to how this man, unfit for every office he has held, can be about to sweep into Downing Street, his performance today is the answer. His snake oil of choice is optimism, so miserably lacking in politics now, radiating out of him like sunshine. All fake, all sun-ray lamp that turns off in private, but it outshines his rivals and dazzles anyone willing to ignore everything we know about his rotten-to-the-core character.
Sounds like the ideal leader of a political party! :D
 
The knives are coming out and the purge is on inside the Conservative Party. Are you loyal enough?

... Antoinette Sandbach said she was sent messages by an unnamed fellow Conservative MP demanding she leave the party. Senior Tories condemned the messages and pledged to investigate.
...
Also on Thursday night, Sandbach posted an image on social media of messages she said were from a colleague and suggested that similar abuse had been behind the decisions of three female former Tory MPs to leave the Conservative party.

“Barely is the ink dry on the results and the dark ops begin,” Sandbach, who supported Rory Stewart in the leadership race, wrote on Twitter. “This from a male conservative MP to me as I sit on the train home.”

The messages, which came only hours after Tory MPs voted Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt through to the final round of the party leadership contest, read: “You too are a disgrace. Time you left the party I think.” She tagged it with the words “completewankspangle” and later deleted the tweet.

In a supplementary tweet that remained live, the MP for Eddisbury added: “It’s bad enough when you get it from complete strangers. Is it any wonder three female MPs left.”

Wrong.

Correlation between Remain vote and higher educational attainment levels. In fact, so much so that educational level is a strong predictor of EU referendum vote.

Left wing nut job?

Oh you mean a handful of peaceful ladies wanting to peacefully hand over some peer-reviewed scientific literature to Hammond.

Instead of listening to her, Field assaulted her.

You are in good company here with Rick. Neither of you can construct a post of more than two sentences because actually you have nothing to say beyond lame trolling.

Run along and leave the discussion to the grown ups, theres a good boy.
