    Bye bye Treason May?

    She narrowly wins the vote, and resigns, thanks to Arlene and Sammy. They have always held the true power, and tonight they will wield it.

    Shooting in Strasbourg: 1 killed, 3 injured

    BBC have surprised me with their reporting on this...... https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-46535552 For once they're not being all wishy washy with it, they've categorically said that he shouted "Allahu Akbar", instead of "allegedly" or quoting someone else who said it, they've actually stated it as fact in their report. They don't seem to be pointing the finger at colonialism, and/or trying to make us think it's all our fault either.

    Shooting in Strasbourg: 1 killed, 3 injured

    A gunman who killed two people and left another brain dead at a Christmas market in Strasbourg shouted "Allahu Akbar", a French prosecutor has said. Cherif Chekatt, 29, is still on the run after the attack on Tuesday evening, which also injured 12 people - six of them seriously. The killer also attacked people with a knife and escaped in a taxi after being shot in the arm during a gunfight with police.

    One victim brain dead: Sky sources have confirmed that one of the victims was a Thai tourist. Witnesses said he was shot in the head and did not respond to attempts to revive him.

    Bye bye Treason May?

    I think this is where Tory politicians are misjudging the issue Brexiteers are the Country's quiet people by and large. Angry beneath the surface but not demonstrative, they just get on with life and make the best of it. The Referendum allowed a vote, a peaceful demonstration that showed how many Brexiteers there are. Brexiteers won and and sat back - the job was done, after all. Remainers are the shouty ones, however. And so MPs are getting a biased mail bag and so are very misguided.

    And that election will be sooner rather than later. Much sooner. The anger will be almost 3 dimensional.

    Bye bye Treason May?

    I dont think they can. Sammy and Arlene have both said this pm that their deal is with the conservative party not an individual. Arlene, i believe, has suffered personally at the hands of the republic. Rightly or wrongly, those 10 DUP MPs have more commitment to something in their hearts, than the entire tory party combined. About a hundred pages back, i'm sure i posted something along the lines of the need to hit May with the Meaningful Vote, 48 letters, and withdrawal of DUP support, all in a concentrated volley. I am now fascinated at the timings here. Merkel has already said, today, there is NOTHING more to negotiate. She got fuck all yesterday. The DUP know there is nothing left to do but threaten to withdraw their support unless she is replaced. Think the gloves will be well and truly off tonight. They can surely do this with a phone call, privately, rather than, publicly, announce they are pulling their support, triggering an election. May gets told she can resign, having won the vote. Fucking blackmail the Tories Arlene. There must be at least 100 tories REALLY not wanting an election right now.

    Macron - how long before wheels fall off

    Its the agency problem. You a have an org or company, owned by shareholders, someone else. The company does something for money - make turbines, write software, whatever. You have management team to operate the company. Over time, the org fills up with OAM people - management, HR, etc. At the time, this may or have may not been the correct number for the business. However .. times are hard, org does not make as much company. Org employee numbers are right-sized for the revenue. However ... its always the workers that get canned, not the O+M bodies - Well, the sit in the same meetings, youd feel uncomfortable giving thse nice HR women a p45. Lets get rid of that expensive worker you never see as hes always at customer sites..... Repeat over time. O+M becomes bloated to the actual workforce. Savings must be made! Delegate 50k manager to keep an eye on the stationary contract - we buy 100 notebooks at £4 each. He can get them half price - a saving of £200/year - only cost us 70K in employee cost though.

    If she stays the Tory party will be annihilated at the next election. Really is a case of Turkeys voting for Xmas unless they have a huge majority.

    Bye bye Treason May?

    If only they could stop taking more and more money from me to fund their champagne parties I'd happily let them get on with it and not be so awkward. In fact I'd like that very much, just to get on with my life and forget about them, not to keep thinking "cunts, the cunts, the fucking cunts'. But no, they just have to keep meddling and finding more ways to interfere in my life by making it more and more expensive and miserable.

    they can't turn up at the bilderburg meeting and say they were thwarted in the globalist agenda by a referendum when everyone else just holds another one until they get the correct answer

    Bye bye Treason May?

    So, the referendum flushed out the fact that there are more Brexiteers in the country than Remainers But the country stupidly elected more Remainers to Parliament than Brexiteers So, It's Remain. Righty-ho

    Macron - how long before wheels fall off

    I'm watching a slow motion train cash in one company I know well, that is making all the classic mistakes that GE made. Focusing on hitting cost saving targets by sacking high paid staff, rather than working out what the critical skills for the company survival is and who has them. Piling more and more on those that remain so the good performers leave and the unemployable hang on and fuck things up. Micromanage things like train tickets, when in terms of overall budget it's immaterial. Focusing on completion of annual HR assessment processes as a sign of a 'good' employee', which diverts staff away from work that actually brings in income for the company. I could write a book on this stuff - this is the third company I have seen it happen in up close, and I know how the story ends.....

    she also talked to corbyn and merkel before the vote to tell them they were going to flush out the extremist brexiteers, explains why corbyn didn't go for the hard option when he objected to it and just had an emergency debate instead of a vote of no confidence hammond just been on calling the brexiteers extremists the dup can be bought with another billion or two

    No Deal Brexit Hoarding

    Wouldn't hoarding for Brexit, with a large number of people making purchases that they would not normally do, boost GDP? Its all part of the plan!!

    Hmm. But if the backstop goes (or goes enough to be lied about), the DUP fall into line do they not? The best Brexit available then is the anemic May deal? Which isn't Brexit really. She's like the fucking Terminator

    Even 20 years would do it. Sadly the only time they work for this long in the so called real world is if they've been barristers, solicitors or bankers.

    Bye bye Treason May?

    Yes her argument is if you dont vote for her remain deal you get to remain in the EU ... and possibly get an incompetent govt taking over led by an incompetent leader. Anyway odds are out to 5/1 for her to go in 2018 ... she may well win tonight but have to go when the DUP withdraw their support ... or she will only win by a handful of votes ... as their are more traitor MPs who like her remain deal.

    In 40 years she has achieved nothing of substance. She left the Home Office in a much worse state than when she entered it. Her argument that she should keep the job because it's too tricky to get rid of her, I found hilarious.
