I keep hearing this phrase "super majority", but what can a government do with a majority of 100 plus that it can't do with one of twenty?

Different in the US if you can get 66% of the seats or more.

They can vote changes through a lot easier. The issue they'll have is that they'll have their fair share of loony lefties throwing spanners in.

So one rich twát born with a silver spoon in his mouth replaced by another rich twát born with a silver spoon in his mouth. The big difference being that the former didn't refuse to prosecute Saville or the Rotherham grooming gangs whilst head of the CPS.

So if thatís the case why are you negative about the authors of this situation being deposed - yes of course Labour will need to correctly finance any improvements but surely better tax payers money goes into public services than lining the pockets of their corrupt chums.Yes itís a mountain to climb but give them a chance - I hear so many people repeating the old cliches about a socialist government (which just to be clear Labour are not) & personally I will reserve judgement until a couple of years into the term.

Stamer is incredibly dull but clearly very smart to have headed up a campaign that frankly said very little but he knows full well if he bows to the left and the radicals the tenure will be short possibly not even going full term - from my observation we are heading for 4 years of conservative lite with slightly less corruption and incompetence.
Iím not negative about them being deposed Pete, Iím negative about the dearth of an alternative. This new clown hasnít the first clue on how to financially fix any of this. Until someone stands up and starts telling it like it is, rather than telling the dopey electorate what they want to hear, the slide into the abyss will continue. Just like the Brexit vote this will make sod all difference, and when he comes under pressure from that massive majority to increase spending, which he will, itís going to accelerate the decline. Anyway, time will tell. But speaking as someone who has financial ties to the UK Iím absolutely bricking it. That aside itís ok for the likes of me and you, but my advice to those still here who can is run, run now and donít look back.

Sounds like the same old shifty truth dodger to me?

Get a grip! The UK will bimble on like it always has!
Im looking at it from a certain perspective. Thats someone whoís been away for 9 years and has been genuinely shocked on their return. Iím not joking mate, the decline across the board is palpable and Iím really worried. I take no pleasure in saying it and desperately hope Iím wrong, I really do.

Isnít that the truth - but the answer is harder to find - France tried an alternative way (party) and thatís ended in tears - Reform, in truth have less actually policies than labour and even less expertise.

As you say IĎm ok and the Swiss system, far from perfect is a lot better than most in Europe so other than having daughters in the UK should perhaps shut up - having said that watch Lord Snooty lose his seat was the best television of the night 😁

Donít f***ing go there, perfectly timed so I didnít even get to see a pre-season game and have to travel back just before the game tomorrow kicks off. Coincidence, probably. Typical, definitely.

Thank you for stating the blindingly obvious! 14 years of tory mismanagement have reduced us to this

Exactly.

There was something very British about the politeness shown by both Starmer and Sunak towards each other in their opening/closing speeches - whether the meant it or not (and I think with what they said they did) is irrelevant because it's about respect - in fairness Bush showed Obama the same courtesy as indeed Clinton did to Trump - contrast these examples with the way Trump and Farage behave - these individuals have no class and no concept of people (even with different views  working together), and I despair of the number of people who think power in their hand will somehow benefit society.

Narcissists have little regards for others or social norms, hence trumpfís and faragoís behaviour and need to be in the spotlight

Could be just taking his time, and licking his wounds.
Whatever, he does not delete his account on a regular basis. Unlike yourself..

Where is manny?

I suspect he needs a little bit of time to book the tickets, pack, move, unpack, get sorted then get back to normal business.

However long it takes, we welcome him back, be gracious in victory and reassure him that the world keeps turning. He needs our love and support now more than ever.

Come on Comrade Manny, rejoin us, a problem shared is a problem halved. 😘

Most wouldn't have seen it, but better English penalty shootouts were part of the Labour manifesto.

Promises made. Promises delivered.
