It won’t happen because Sinn Fein want a no-deal Brexit as the ensuing chaos will bring a united Ireland closer.

Yes ok

Why would you say therefore that the DUP are supporting a government who in current rhetoric (even if it is brinkmanship) are leading us down a no deal path that threatens the Union in Ireland and maybe in time the rest of the UK too?

The DUP propped up the Tories because to do otherwise risked Corbyn as PM, a man who has called for a united Ireland in the past. At least a Tory PM would resist calls for a border poll for longer than Corbyn would.

Also, it was a great victory for them in the short-term - a billion quid for Northern Ireland and a chance to punch above their weight at a national level. Maybe they just gave no thought to a no-deal Brexit - they have a long history of winning hard negotiations with intransigence and just assumed that at some point the EU would cave in.

In non-Brexit news here's Anna Soubry crying because Chuka Umunna doesn't phone her since he joined the Lib Dems

My enquiry on here last weekend as to whether the bbc (news/website/radio/tv) instinctively was pro-remain,pro-leave (i see it argued both ways) or balanced didn't receive a single response :-(

thought it was a genuinely interesting question too!

Whilst I don't think there's overt bias in their coverage, they'd be susceptible to the soft bias of the fact many of their employees are of a similar background (middle class, university types) and so would have a similar outlook on life - the main reason the Brexit result would have been such a shock to them.

Kukushin is right in that, in trying to be as impartial as they can, the BBC will instinctively avoid taking positions on issues at all, which inevitably leads to a pro-continuity/status quo position.

If Boris didn't want snitchy Remainers grassing up his domestics to the police then he shouldn't have shacked up with some posh London bird - should have got himself some skirt up In Sunderland where I'm sure Team Leave knows how to keep schtum.

Both landed. Thank you!

So this is an interesting one. As Vettel crossed the line first, some bookies may pay out on Vettel as the winner. It depends what their rules say. SportPesa have paid my winnings for Hamilton though.

The rule is generally the result when the podium presentation is done.

Also Tommy Robinson - punches someone in the back of the head for saying something Tommy doesn’t like.

It's the new regulations - did the same thing to me. Though they waited until I'd deposited for the first time in ages, had a small win and then froze the account until I'd done the docs.

Any chance of some political discussion rather than playground stuff lads?

If you use language, imagery and rhetoric in your campaigning which is designed to appeal to the racist element in society then it's a bit rich to start clutching your pearls when you get accused of being racist.

If you're wondering what that aroma is, it's the smell of a goose that is well and truly cooked.

Conservative leadership elections are a graveyard for early favourites - as far as I can tell the early favourite has never won (discounting 1989, when Thatcher received a token challenge and 1995, when Major quit and restood to smoke out dissenters)

1965 - Reginald Maudling (beaten by Ted Heath)
1975 - Ted Heath (Thatcher)
1990 - Michael Heseltine (John Major)
1997 - Ken Clarke (William Hague)
2001 - Michael Portillo (Iain Duncan Smith!)
2005 - David Davis (David Cameron)
2016 - Boris Johnson (Theresa May)
2019 - Boris Johnson (?)

Boris's price has gone for a little walk last couple of days - he was matched at under 1.8 on Betfair but is now nearly 3. The mover in that time is Michael Gove (inventor of the Boris Johnson knife rack three years ago).

I assume that, right now, polls are being done with the Tory membership - the last one from Yougov (which was done before May resigned) had Boris at 39%, but everyone else added together was 54%.

right back for the election results tomorrow

who wants to guess the Brexit Party vote share?

closest wins a banana


i will start,37%

I will go for 34.5% - if I win I want my prize to be one of the proper bendy British bananas and not one of those straight Brussels EU monstrosities.

I’ll take 2% because it’ll save me having to give any money to Help The Aged this year.
