    Former Conservative MP Charlie Elphicke has been found guilty of three counts of sexual assault and is looking at the "very real possibility" of jail time.
    This uniquely British saying means "No jail time for our boy but don't tell the proles", right?

    Has there ever been a case where the very real possibility has very really happened

    The state of those comments under Johnson's tweet about Eid. I wonder how many of them voted for him back in December?

    Lawrence Fox was right, this is the most, warm, lovely, tolerant country in the world.

    Was thinking the same thing. I donít think English nationalism and veganism have huge amount of crossover

    I showed my dad those comments, " I agree with the comments of many."

    Then I showed him the comments from the diwali tweet... Silence.

    Idiot.

    Yeah, this seemed to happen very abruptly. I mean, Carlaw was absolutely fucking woeful, so little surprise in the end; he literally spent what turned out to be his last gig as opposition leader at FMQs, during a global health pandemic, complaining that the SNP merch site was selling SNP-branded facemasks ...

    But the manner in which this has come about is strange to say the least. That utter bawbag Douglas Ross seems to have thrown his hat into the ring for the leadership. Even more bizarrely, as a leadership hopeful, he now seems to be directing the business of the Scots Tories in Holyrood: https://twitter.com/mhairihunter/status/1289178334580969473?s=21

    Itís all very odd. Nothing a few ĎSturgeon is literally Hitlerí and misogynistic Jimmy Krankie memes wonít deflect from though.

    Govt convenes an independent panel to look at judicial review. Chaired by Lord Faulks. Former Tory Minister under David Cameron, now unaffiliated.

    @Dgzter Very abrupt indeed.
    I bet if you re-played the video of the last session you could see him actually have the epiphany there and then.
    Ross in confirmed, but whats-her-face will stand in for a bit.

    An ex-KGB agent is being given a Peerage. The mind boggles. (along with a whole load of others, yes, including Botham)

    "Philip May, husband of former Prime Minister Theresa May, gets a knighthood for "political service"."

    What fucking political service? Servicing the Prime Minister?

    That's obviously a joke list no? They obviously don't care about hiding their cronyism anymore.

    Imagine the depth of the sigh coming from poor Philip doing his watercolour peacefully in the conservatory when he sees Theresa coming back from a morning session at smoothpeteís gym, dripping like a broken fridge

    Rosie Duffield retweeting Piers Morganís transphobic witterings.

    Itís kind of amazing to me politicians in general arenít just more aware of the cultural zeitgeist, but Labour in particular you expect to do better on progressive identity stuff.
