So Jez has got 35% and Teresa has got 34%, that still leaves 30% floating around.

Big fan of Mr. Korben

Oh… Different guy? Corbin you said? Still a fan :smiley:


#4

Caroline Lucas and Jonathan Bartley? :stuck_out_tongue:

Actually, what would happen if the Green Party were to win a general election? Who would get to live in 10 Downing Street? From what I hear it’s not really big enough for one family, never mind two.

Do you remember when bLair swapped houses with Brown because Gordon had no friends or family, and Tony wanted the bigger house, 11 Downing Street.


#6

All things considered, May got lucky. Had Grenfell happened a couple of weeks earlier, Labour would have won by a landslide.


#7

May is a filthy bugger.


#8

Probably best not to say things like that in front of politicians. You might give them… ideas.


#9

Could they just call yet another election? Given numbers like this? Would that be entirely unprecedented since the most recent ones just wrapped up? I guess only the PM can do that, correct or is there some way for the opposition party to trigger a round of elections, like in the case where the PM has lost so much confidence with the public?

There would need to be a two thirds majority in Parliament or a vote of no confidence in the government.

I was commenting about the Green Party though, who have two leaders (historically one male identifying and one female identifying). Sadly, I doubt that they have the support of 30% of the electorate to run the country.
