    Not that there's a lot going on in actual politics in the UK right now (elephant aside)...

    ...however, the other thread is getting a bit clogged up with non Brexit related discussion. So here, have at it!

    But yeah, don't really care which one sticks... as long as we can split out the non brexit related stuff.

    Labour hating Jews.
    Think that’s about it at the moment.

    Hey don't forget Conservatives hating the poor. Did anyone see the article last week that Job Center staff have been advised they can no longer recommend customers who are unable to access their universal credit to local food banks.

    No no, these things are still related to Brexit

    Austerity? Only going to get worse after Brexit
    Labour hating Jews? Well they've gained support under Corbyn from the working class left who have been misled by tabloids and infiltrated by facists since the referendum on Brexit.
    Military to deploy drone squadrons? Can't possibly be anything to do with...

    Mr Williamson said Brexit brought an "unparalleled opportunity" to consider how the UK could maximise its influence around the world
    Oh right

    To be fair I do get that it's more like "all of these things are tangentially related to Brexit because the media mention it at every opportunity to get pageviews from gammons"

    Everything is related to Brexit by default if you want to go down that route.

    It's still much better to have it as it was with two threads though (one for Brexit news specifically, one for broader political stuff).

    I believe the actual word he used was 'lethality'.

    Fun continues at Labour HQ...

    The Labour Party has received 673 complaints in 10 months alleging acts of anti-Semitism by its members.

    A letter from the party's general secretary, Jennie Formby, revealed the figures after she was pushed by MPs for specific details.

    She said 96 members were immediately suspended from the party for their conduct between April 2018 and January 2019, and 12 were expelled.

    Labour has struggled to contain a long-running row over anti-Semitism.

    nick boles under fire apparently

    bitter thugs deselecting ideologically opposed MPs is it...

    no doubt we’ll soon have soft focus longreads with him in the observer lamenting the party’s extreme turn.

    Are Apprentice candidates uniquely placed to be UKIP thick? There was one on Politics Live today and even the Tory MP on the panel was scowling at her ridiculous right-wingedness

    I don't know how anyone watches that sort of stuff any more. I've run out of TVs to punch.
