Beleagured Theresa May 'to quit as Prime Minister on August 30, 2019 in a bid to stop a leadership challenge' - as she tries to calm rivals with a prosecco party at Chequers

Theresa May is said to have revealed the date she will quit as Prime Minister - giving herself two years to see Brexit through first.

She has chosen Friday August 30th 2019 as the day she will step down from 10 Downing Street, it has been reported.

It comes amid a major charm offensive by Mrs May in a bid to win the support of her MPs and avoid an awkward leadership challenge.


This man is going to become Prime Minister on 1st September 2019 and it's going to be fucking awesome.

Idk. It's easy enough to so that it's not on to harass the children of a member of government, but it's not like the government isn't above harassing the children of people it finds inconvenient. I mean, if someone engages in illegal anti-government activity, they'll be kidnapped and imprisoned, and their children will be made damn sure aware then that the government don't think their parent is a very nice person. Given that this does seem to act as a good deterrent, maybe heckling children is a good way of stopping MPs from being shits.

Young adults in England have scored among the lowest results in the industrialised world in international literacy and numeracy tests.

A major study by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) shows how England's 16 to 24-year-olds are falling behind their Asian and European counterparts. England is 22nd for literacy and 21st for numeracy out of 24 countries.

Unlike other developed countries, the study also showed that young people in England are no better at these tests than older people, in the 55 to 65 age range. When this is weighted with other factors, such as the socio-economic background of people taking the test, it shows that England is the only country in the survey where results are going backwards - with the older cohort better than the younger.


Cue lots of finger pointing and nothing changing.

One in four graduates in England and Northern Ireland are working in jobs for which they are overqualified and do not require a degree, according to a major international education report.

The study by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development found that while graduate unemployment rates in the UK are among the lowest in the world, students are more likely to end up in non-graduate jobs associated with lower incomes.

Andreas Schleicher, the OECD’s director of education and skills, said too many young people emerging from university were ending up in low-paid, non-graduate jobs in the UK because they lacked the basic numeracy and literacy skills that should be expected from a university education.

Schleicher said: “What we see is that a lot of people in the UK get a university degree but end up in a job that does not require that degree. When you test the skills of those people you actually see that those people don’t have the kind of skills that would be associated with a university degree.”

Totally unsurprising to anyone who has worked in academia or recruitment. Blair's goal of 50% participation in higher education led to a drastic lowering of standards in the lower recesses of the university league tables. A polytechnic or an FE college doesn't suddenly become an institute of higher education just because you call it that. A kid who got two Ds at A-level just isn't going to benefit from another three years of education, but there are plenty of "universities" who will happily take £27k in fees from them. It's cargo cult education for a cargo cult society.

Well if our graduate employment rates are among the highest in the world, is it really a surprise that many of them are in positions where they are overqualifed? I've met graduates before who would rather live off the dole for half a year than get a lousy job because they feel it's beneath them. If these people are swallowing their pride then that's fine with me. Also I'd agree with >>84441 since there are clearly a lot of graduates who not only didn't require their education but didn't get a very good one in the first place.

I don't think you are wrong to, it is a wonder that I am as reasoned person as I am really, but I have ended up with a handful of psychological disorders. My father is just as much of an arsehole but in different ways, he has at least admitted he has a problem, (that he now gets therapy for) but in an 'I can't help it' way that absolves him of his own guilt and is an insult to me.

I think I would have probably turned out better if I went into foster care.

I primary keep contact with either of them is because I want inheritance. Which as fucked up as it sounds and makes me, is the best solution I've come up with for my situation. Keep them at a distance, don't let her in my head, appear for major events.

I can imagine my mother as a final insult and act of narcissism giving all the money to the church though. If that happens I guess she will have out played me to the end.

In a string of texts Griffiths called himself “Daddy”, promised money if he received racy images and described perverted and rough sex he claimed to have had with other women.

The shamed Tory wrote:

• “I’m going to need something filthy to put a smile on my face. I want to see you both naked.”

• “Take off the bra and panties… you’ve got Daddy in such a frenzy.”

• “I’m going to bring you to London and do whatever I want to you.”

• “I’m thinking maybe we need a flat for Daddy’s girls. I’m taken by you both. You girls are spectacular.”

Many more messages go into shocking detail about his liking for certain sexual acts and are too disgusting to print in full.

It's odd how many LGBT/LGBT-sympathetic types at my uni proudly celebrate the 1966 World Cup victory given the English stance on homosexuality. If they were being charitable you were merely a person with an unfortunate psychiatric condition, less charitably you were infected with perverted degeneracy and an active threat to society if you dared talk about it. English views on these matters are something new, although football remains stubbornly unwilling to accept this given a total absence of openly gay top flight footballers to this day.

Tax on pensioners proposed to heal inter-generational divide

A £10,000 payment should be given to the young and pensioners taxed more, a new report into inter-generational fairness in the UK suggests.

The research and policy organisation, the Resolution Foundation, says these radical moves are needed to better fund the NHS and maintain social cohesion.

The Resolution Foundation says its goal is to improve outcomes for people on low and modest incomes.

Recommendations include:-

• Give £10,000 to all young adults at the age of 25, funded by a new "lifetime receipts tax" that would replace inheritance tax.

• Scrap council tax and replace it with a new property tax targeting wealthier homeowners.

• Use the proceeds from property tax reform to halve stamp duty for first-time buyers and increase public funding for social care.

How's it a meme? Corbyn's made it quite clear he won't compromise slightly on his ideological principles and that he has no interest whatsoever in trying to court so-called centrists as he believes non-voters are an untapped mine full of Trots.

That's not the same as viewing Tory voters as some kind of political untermensch, he just believes he's correct and that compromising would endanger the policies he feels are too beneficial for the country to lose. Laura Piddock made those comments about Tory MPs, not Tory voters, which is fair enough given the distain for the people of this nation that runs through every Conservatve policy like a great, stinky, skid-mark. Also you've started saying "Trots" which means I remember you from when you were throwing embarrassing fits and calling him "Dear Leader", like it was the only non-thinning joke in existence, as such I'm going stop before you give me a headache.

Switzerland will hold a vote on whether to introduce a basic income for all adults, in a further sign of growing public activism over pay inequality since the financial crisis. A grassroots committee is calling for all adults in Switzerland to receive an unconditional income of 2,500 Swiss francs ($2,800) per month from the state, with the aim of providing a financial safety net for the population.

Under Swiss law, citizens can organize popular initiatives that allow the channeling of public anger into direct political action. The country usually holds several referenda a year. In March, Swiss voters backed some of the world's strictest controls on executive pay, forcing public companies to give shareholders a binding vote on compensation. A separate proposal to limit monthly executive pay to no more than what the company's lowest-paid staff earn in a year, the so-called 1:12 initiative, faces a popular vote on November 24.



I'm not entirely sure what to make of these. I reckong that if they tried the 1:12 thing over here then the lowest paid members of staff in some large organisations would end up being made redundant and replaced with contractors.

I love the idea behind things like this. I love telling people about how it would actually be better for unemployment and pull out all the arguments a good socialist does about how we would actually end up dividing labour more equitably and all end up better off.

But deep down I know that if we ever got it here, I'd quit my job the same fucking day. I fancy it'd allow me to become one of those wankers with a YouTube channel or the kind of person who buys Warhammer to paint and then put on eBay, but without worrying about actually being successful because in reality I'd spend 6 days a week without even getting dressed.

My reasons for wanting a universal basic income are entirely selfish.

You know how trust fund kids often turn out to be unreasonably successful despite a lack of apparent talent? That's half the idea behind UBI. By reducing the consequences of failure, you empower people to take chances.

The early 80s were a boom period for creativity, despite record levels of unemployment. A lot of young people thought "I'm stuck on the dole, I can't get a job, I might as well start a band". Nobody really checked that you were actively seeking work, because there were so few vacancies. Countless magazines, record labels, film studios and game development companies were started off the back of Enterprise Allowance. The student grant also functioned as a kind of basic income - you could sign up for a course at a polytechnic, do the bare minimum of coursework and get paid to spend three years figuring out what you wanted to do with your life. Today we have record low unemployment, but that's not necessarily a good thing in the long term - the harsh sanctions regime has forced a lot of people into dead-end jobs or marginal "self employment" of the Uber/Deliveroo variety.

A new political party with access to up to £50m in funding has been secretly under development for more than a year by a network of entrepreneurs, philanthropists and donors keen to “break the Westminster mould”, the Observer can reveal.

The movement, spearheaded by a former Labour benefactor, is understood to have been drawn up by a group frustrated by the tribal nature of politics, the polarisation caused by Brexit and the standard of political leadership on all sides. It appears to have a centrist policy platform that borrows ideas from both left and right.

Senior figures from the worlds of business and charity are understood to be involved, as well as former supporters of the main parties, including a number of former Tory donors. Sources say the project, led by the multi-millionaire philanthropist and founder of LoveFilm, Simon Franks, has had full-time staff members for as long as a year. Initial discussions are said to have begun at the end of 2016. Franks has set up a company, Project One Movement for the UK, which is likely to be the vehicle for the enterprise.

Some of those involved have apparently been keen for the project to concentrate on funding community activism, rather than becoming a formal political party. A final decision has not yet been taken, but there is said to be a consensus that the movement will run candidates at the next election, due in 2022, should the current parties be deemed to be failing. Some form of political movement could be launched later this year.

There has been persistent speculation about the potential of a new party as Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership has taken Labour to the left, while a Tory hard Brexit has alienated some on that party’s modernising wing. The Lib Dems have been unable to take advantage of the polarisation.

While figures from across the political spectrum are said to be involved in Franks’s project, much of its policy platform appears to be aimed mainly at a liberal, centre-left audience. Potential policy proposals include asking the rich to pay a fairer share of tax, better funding for the NHS and improved social mobility. However, it also backs centre-right ideas on wealth creation and entrepreneurship, and is keen to explore tighter immigration controls. A source said some Brexit supporters are involved.


New Labour's back, lads.

It's the fucking red Tories, the fucking mainstream media, the fucking Blairites, the fucking Jews. It's everyone's fault but Jeremy Corbyn.

Yes, those groups do all seem to have it in for the guy, and have been trying to force him out in favour of someone more malleable to their agenda, for some time. No wonder he can't get anything done, right?

They have been trying to undermine him, but Jeremy Corbyn is also very good at undermining himself.

The two are not mutually exclusive.

I say we just gas the lot of them. Except the Jews, obviously. I mean, we're not Nazis.
