"a military or political group that rules a country after taking power by force." ? :scratch:

Doesn't suprise me, yesterday Rees-Mogg kept talking about the UK being in vassalage to the EU. Somehow.

I see BoJo the clown lost his first vote as PM and his majority in one fell swoop. This would be funny if it weren’t all so tragic.
She battled through in every kind of tribulation,
She revelled in adventure and imagination.
She never listened to no hater, liar,
Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.
Oh, my my! Oh my, she flies!

Annunziata Rees-Mogg

Quite a pair of Christian names.

Annunziata is the Italian word for (feminine) Annunciation. It is generally understood to refer to the Virgin Mary, receiving the word of the Angel Gabriel that she is to bear the Christ child; that is, the Virgin Mary after the Annunciation.

https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct=j ... NJ-iBy4Ijt


(Old Testament) son of Isaac; brother of Esau; father of the twelve patriarchs of Israel; Jacob wrestled with God and forced God to bless him, so God gave Jacob the new name of Israel (meaning `one who has been strong against God')

https://www.vocabulary.com/dictionary/Jacob


The parents were rather mundane: William and Gillian.
Why do you think that?

Now at 0 out 3, or 100%, votes lost in the Commons and called out as a racist to his face. Worst PM start ever? :dunno:

Resign!

^ Or, revoke Article 50 on the quiet but tell the Brexit voters (i.e. those with Blue Passports) we've left the EU after all and simply get on with life: Blue Passport holders will be given the opportunity to shop in the newly expensive and poorly stocked supermarket aisles, have inordinate waits to see their doctors and get through customs and immigration only after lengthy delays to have their Blue Passports vouchsafed. :roll:

Given the lies he's told so far will BJ quietly cancel Art 50. and declare on Halloween that the UK has exited the EU and entered the land of milk and honey?


"Look..." he will say "now our businesses can trade with the whole world!"

"I told you the Irish Backstop could be resolved and we have done it! The backstop does not apply!!"


"I have delivered to our great nation the best possible deal with the EU"
Why do you think that?

It staggers me to think that she'll probably be replaced by someone even worse.
