    So what are the odds that Johnson will be able to stay as PM after how badly he was slapped down by the UK Supreme Court?

    Saw reporting that there are calls for him to resign on his own or else get forced out.

    corbyn is labor leader because the cons had in fighting in 1974?....
    and the cons beat labor purely because of the financial crisis caused by US republicans?
    yea..... totally nothing at all to do with the state of the deficit, the several years of grinding war in the middle east that no one wanted to be apart of, and the still yet to be found mythical weapons of mass destruction.

    and the war crimes cant forget the war crimes.

    Johnson is, unfortunately, going nowhere.

    Also the "momentum are Tory plants" theory seems to have picked up after this Labour conference.
    the childish part of me that liked playing fireworks, kinda wants that conspiracy theory to snowball.
    but the adult part of me is trying to decide between Germany and Iceland as my new home country.

    Unless it's improved since I was there, it was mostly lager, and the lager was mostly Polar Beer. That stuff is a crime against humanity.

    I'm American, and my Mother did the same post WWII Germany for the same reasons.

    She's said multiple times she's considering going back there due to Dumbass Dump and the GOP, as she didn't want to relive her childhood again - also laughing how they're more sane ATM that America, and how the hell we got to this point. =(

    id like to say it was hitter, but it was actually Bismark that made her family leave due to the 3 wars he started back in the 1860s.

    I don't want to hold the "who's been the stupidest in history" contest here, but the US or the UK are far off from being as stupid as Germany was once. Tell your mom to relax, Trump will blow over and it'll be alright. Also, play this for her while you're saying it.

    Oh, trust me - My mother's a stubborn one, and she's going to be here waiting for Dumbass Dump to fall before she steps off this rock. It was mostly said if/when shit starts happening that she experienced (ie. SS house raids, having to sell groceries in the back of their stores to Jewish people, ect)

    EDIT: By the way, this cartoon crossed my path - and I thought of you when I saw it. ^_^

    Seriously, imagine if Angus Deayton hadn't been caught snorting cocaine off a hooker's backside, this may never have happened.

    And that is a reference that most people outside of the UK (and those inside it who arent old enough to remember) won't understand.

    Yeah but we wouldn't have had the best HIGNFY episode where both Merton and Hislop ripped the shit out of him.

    May be, but if Deayton never got fired, Johnson would never have hosted that infamous episode.

    The first time Boris Johnson hosted. Was arguably the best episode ever, so popular they released an extended version on DvD.

    This was years before he became Mayor of London, airdate was the 29/11/02.

    It was the beginning of what became his public personna that was popular.
