The Tories Are Cunts thread

Recommended Posts

John Bercow was a fantastic champion for Parliament and democracy generally, and the best Speaker in my lifetime.

He's also a colossal egotistical twat, misogynist and bully.  People are complex.

Bercow brought an element of pantomime to the chamber. I love his ties but he's still a cunt.

Oh no he didn’t

The sight of Bercow clearly passed the point of caring what anyone thinks, was certainly something.

Get out, you will not be missed.

I am terribly ignorant of the inner workings of politics. Could someone  give me a run down on what on earth was happening in that video. 

 

Thank you

Speaker telling noisy cunt to take a flying flamingo, agrees to do his job as Speaker, rather than the guy behind the order. Add in his earlier announcement of stepping down and the obvious lack of any further fucks he gives, gets ninth circle of Hell side eye from the new Black Rod (who avoided Dennis Skinner who usually makes some remark when the official shows up)

Opposition members applaud him for showing his colours.

All this at after 1am on a Monday, was better than Raw.

What's meant to happen:

  • Parliament operates for a year then gets prorogued for a week or so to start a new session with a new Queen's Speech setting out the plans for the next year.
  • The Queen doesn't come in person so five Lords (leader of house, a¬†Conservative, Labour head, Lib Dem head, Crossbench aka independents head) act as a Commission to represent her and close the session, with a busy chamber of Lords hanging round to watch,
  • They send Black Rod to the Commons to ask MPs, lead by the Speaker,¬†to come to the Lords for the closing ceremony. When its done the MPs go back to the Commons, the Speaker says "Queen says we're done here, guys", MPs shake his hand, everyone goes home.

 

What actually happened:

  • Parliament was planned to run for two years to leave enough time to sort out Brexit. (Normally laws in progress get ditched at the end of the session and you have to start again.) After two years May isn't 100% certain she'd actually get a new Queen's Speech passed, which normally means it's curtains, so she stalls, during which time she's replaced.
  • Johnson prorogues for five weeks, very blatantly¬†to reduce time for MPs to block a no deal Brexit, which doesn't exactly work.
  • Only three of the Lords on the Royal Commission turn up as the Labour and Lib Dem heads boycott it. Fortunately for protocol, three is the minimum needed for it to be legit.
  • Literally nobody is on the opposition benches in the Lords and there's about a dozen on the government side.
  • Black Rod goes to the Commons and asks the MPs to come to the Lords, prompting loud shouts of refusal.
  • Several MPs grab hold of the Speaker, leading to scuffles with clerks of the house. It was a protest¬†recreating when King Charles 1st prorogued Parliament for 11 years (which sparked the Civil War.) MPs at that time sat on the Speaker so he couldn't go to the Prorogument ceremony¬†for several hours, during which time MPs tried to pass various laws (which didn't have any force.)
  • Other MPs hold up signs saying "Silenced."
  • While Black Rod looks very pissed off, the Speaker pretty much says "This proguement isn't normal, it's political bullshit, I'm only going to the Lords now because it's my job." Various Tory MPs shout that he shouldn't be doing this and he basically tells them to get fucked.
  • The Speaker leads most but not all Tory MPs (plus the DUP) to the Lords while all the other MPs chant "Shame on you!" The opposition MPs stay in the Commons during the prorogument ceremony and sing socialist/Scottish anthems.
  • The Speaker comes back from the ceremony to do the goodbye bit, but all the Tory MPs who went to the Lords go home instead.

ITV promoting the David Cameron interview. My curiosity about what he's got to say is outweighed by my disgust at the pig fucking cunt for being solely responsible for plunging the country into this current shitstorm.

The dirty cunt.

It's hidden away on Radio 4, and they'll balance it out by having an extra racist on QT.

They'll need to get a new regular one as I'm sure a man of his word won't go back on it. (No need to click the link to the sun.
