The UK is plagued by a moronic politico just like us, how quaint.


No doubt she would have been in perfect shape were it not for the 350 million a week being taken from the NHS and tithed to Brussels…


Thank you for explaining what a P45 Form is. There were a few reports today that that just mentioned the form without explaining what it was. I would have understood “pink slip”. It’s what someone needs to hand to trump.


Unlike Rump, she’s been in politics for quite some time and really ought to know better. When the stage itself tries to walk out on you, I think it’s time to call it quits… then again, the characters waiting in the wings for her exit are none too savoury either.

No. Think of it as a comedy placeholder.


It’s a crying tragedy that the first ‘o’ in the slogan was so well glued on.


I loved the fact that the backdrop was falling apart as she spoke:


I’m not entirely up to speed on the nuances of UK politics, but is it normal for a leader of the Conservative Party to wear jewelry bearing the likenesses of famous Communists?
