I'll remember you as a pretty good Prime Minister. Although you're a poshboy and therefore have little in common with me I've always thought you were the best man around at the time to do the job. It's a ridiculous job to do when you think about it.

Who is the next Prime Minister?

>Who is the next Prime Minister?

The smart money is on Andrea Leadsom but I'm hearing that from biased sources. She did well in the Libor scandal (on the Treasury select committee) so at the very least the position of chancellor seems secure if she wants it.

Whoever comes in is fucked mind. The record for leaders who walked into the job rather then being elected in a general is less than stellar and I think Boris knows this. Well played, Cameron.

>...pretty good Prime Minister

Massive growth of inequality in the country, fucked public services, demonised immigrants and all this was subsequently blamed on the EU instead of the Tories. He then called a referendum no one really wanted in order to try and keep his own party under control and drove us all off the cliff with a stupid gamble he didn't need to take.

Doesn't sound particularly good to me. I can't actually think of a single positive thing he achieved whilst in power. He's just a classic soundbite politician with no substance.

I will concede that Dodgy Dave is the lesser of the evils compared to Bojo or Gove, but it's like choosing between prostate cancer and lung cancer.

He can't. He'll find the relevant data for year ending 2011, and the comparable data for year ending 2015, find the latter higher than the former, and resort to trying to present data from 2009 as representative as if the recession didn't happen.

Nobody knows. The figure we do have is the number of rations given out. One person may turn up to collect for a family of four, and may come back a second time, in which case that one person will have generated eight rations. The Trussell Trust gave out 61468 in the first year of Cameron's administration and 1109309 in 2015/16, though they expanded considerably over that time, they're not the only operator of food banks, and food banks are not the only emergency food provision, so the trend may not be as it first appears from their numbers. Either way, it's fucking shameful that we're in that position in the first place.

The argument is distasteful, but I think it's necessary.

Increased use of food banks does not necessarily indicate an increase in poverty or inequality. There has been a huge increase in the number of food banks and public awareness of their existence, so increased use may indicate a latent need that had previously gone unserved.

For obvious political reasons, it is not in the interests of the Trussell Trust to provide statistically useful data on their client base.

I know bams in my hometown who use food banks to get free booze.

They go to the food bank to get food and then will trade a greater value of food for a bottle of vodka or something with a less desperate bam.

While the increase use of food banks may well indicate a previously unserved latent need, one must also consider the possibility that the increased usage in the service is the result of a calculating underclass finding new and tackier ways to exploit the welfare state (i.e. bams bamming more efficiently)

There's a weird political effect where quite often conservative parties are able to get away with relatively liberal actions, and vice-versa. It basically stems from any process that requires winning over some members of the opposite faction - whether this be voters or MPs. See: Tories pushing through the gay marriage bill, New Labour going to war in Iraq, Reagan negotiating with Gorbachev, etc.

In other words, by having a strong woman in charge the Tories aren't going to lose many of their core voters (aside from any extreme misogynists) but they stand to gain centre-ground voters whose negative stereotypes of the Tories may be softened by a leading woman. On the other hand, Labour having a female leader would only entrench the negative stereotype of them being the woolly liberal party with no real strength or bite.

I think it's more that they don't understand historical context at all.

Gordon Brown was not James Callaghan, Miliband was not Michael Foot. Nor was Corbyn. But to look at a Blairite, they think all they have to do is make like Blair to win again.

This is just like the 80s. We're too left wing. Scotland, the North of England and Wales will keep loyally voting for us leaving us free to take Marginal seats by recapturing the centre ground. The SNP? Silly, don't you remember how they discredited themselves in 1979? Pah. Scotland will never vote for those clowns again. UKIP? The only people against the EU are the bloody Bennites...

Sometimes I have to wonder if even within his own context Blair was a lucky charlatan who gets credit for the hard work of others and continued to move towards the right even when it was unnecessary. (Given that by the time he took power in 1997 the Conservatives had completely discredited themselves thanks to Black Wednesday and Maastricht, and given John Smith was a clear PM in waiting before his untimely death.)

The true tragedy to be honest. Blair and Brown has tainted the main left wing party for at least the next 10 years ensuring we have more Tory bollocks, all for pandering to middle-class wankers who only vote left wing to make themselves feel slightly better about their little taste of privilege.

I'm in, even though it will inevitably be thrown into chaos by the sheer amount of cunt offs that happen on a weekly/daily basis and will become some kind of Waterworld scenario.

>He then called a referendum no one really wanted

The referendum was part of the Tory party manifesto. Conservatives won the election. What do you mean by 'no one really wanted' ?

What like those milleninazis and middle class alfalfa sprout eating Guardian nobends who were in London last weekend having a cunt off because they don't agree with democracy?

No wonder the retreating ice-shelves love muslamism so much. Both agree democracy is wrong and totalitarian rule is sacrosanct, whilst not understanding the idiocy of their hypocrisy both ends.

Without prejudice, you're a stupid cunt.
