2 days before the election was announced, the Spectator went to press with a lead editorial on how anything but a November election would be political suicide.

I’ve seen my fair share of elections now and i could quite easily be convinced this inept, shambolic, omnishambles of a campaign is a deliberate attempt to dump all this country’s many problems on to Labour. Or are they just that incompetent?

I am not buying the Spectator to find out.

I imagine that the Tories assumed that the “costaliving crisis” would seem less and that one more lucky winner would be sent to Rwanda with £3,000 – fat chance.

Sunak just wants to spend more time with his money.

I read a great comment on a UK politics yt vid. The commenter had said the hatred for the tories is much broader and deeper than they’d realized.

They’d gone to the doctor, and one of the many questions they were asked was, “What color are your tories?” :rofl: tophat-rofl

Looks like the combo of expenses scandal, three jobs and booting out an ill candidate so he could have their westminster seat has just been too much.

What a shambles, though. Sacking a branch office manager in the middle of an election campaign.

I’ve paid pretty close attention to UK politics since getting online in Oct '98, and have never heard any but the tory party referred to as an “omnishambles,” nor “an absolute shower.”

Our current fascist government has managed to expel exactly one refugee to Rwanda.

For the same price we could have had 40 Steve Austins.

Just my thought for the day.

If the Tories made the Six Million Dollar Man, you can guarantee that at least 5.9 million will end up in the pockets of Conservative Party donors, while all of Steve Austin’s modifications will come from Poundland.

Who had, entirely coincidentally, made substantial contributions to someone’s coffers.
