    Oh if we're getting into who said what decades ago, can we reel off what our current PM has said in the past? That's always a lovely trip down memory lane.

    But I think I'll throw my lot in with the likes of Stephen Fry, Rowan Atkinson, David Attenborough, JK Rowling, Noam Chomsky, and Steve Coogan. You know, people who aren't enormous ****s.


    Jury's out on several of those.

    What about Ben Elton, Hugh Grant, Billy Bragg, Emma Thompson, Gary Lineker?

    Showbiz hypocrites one and all.

    Agree with this really.

    Itll be interesting to see if the growing trend on social media of calls to vote tactically pay off. More and more “guides” on how to vote in your area to stop a Tory majority are popping up on Facebook and Twitter reaching out to the younger voters.

    We're all hypocrites to some degree, as long as you don't pretend not to be it's not really an issue. I just find it a tad amusing that the people I listed on the right are literally the definition of a top arsehole, while the left wing ones I put are just generally annoying at best.

    But don’t mention what anyone connected with Labour said. They have moved on, it was ages ago, even when it was only 2 years and we should all forget about it. Twitter posts deleted and jobs a good un.

    Morgan hardly qualifies as a top arsehole. He spouts off in the media, which plenty of others do, that is all. Just depends if you agree or disagree with what he is saying.

    Yes, but you did pn’t mention really irritating left wing ****s like Owen Jones, Polly Toynbee others.

    I think it will either be very close to a Tory majority, but not quite, or a very small Tory majority. I think a fair few of the Northern seats the Tories won unexpectedly in 2017 will go back to Labour. But Labour (and perhaps the Tories) will lose a few particularly Brexity seats (Hartlepool, Boston, that kind of place).

    I think there will be another nine months of chaos before the next GE - because one thing's for sure, Johnson has burned his bridges with the DUP!

    But but but but. Whataboutery at it's finest.

    Show me some Labour ones. I'm not going to defend something that isn't defensible, if they've said something hurtful or stupid, then they're fair game, but this "BuT wHaT aBoUt LaBoUr?" every time something bad is pointed out about the Tories is pretty tiresome. Boris does it every time, he can't help himself. Instead of addressing the points at hand, he kindly tells people what Labour would/wouldn't do in that same situation. Maybe that's where it comes from.

    There is no way there will be an independence referendum before the Brexit referendum, in that scenario. It would be bad politics to do otherwise.

    And if we vote to leave again, you can hardly blame the Scots for giving independence a try.

    But again, they're not going to try and kidnap you, or dox your address, or threaten you. They're just a pain in the arse.

    About as relevant as Charon's earlier wibble about the 1970s. Not very!

    Piers Morgan is going to try and kidnap you, dox your address and threaten you? Amazing.

    I can quote plenty Corbyn has said down the years. No doubt that would be deemed unfair.
