Today a dude literally crossed the aisle to take away Boris majority:



And just watch these peeps. Swedish politics has nothing on this entertainment:

    It'd been pretty nuts for the past few years but this year is just insane. On one hand it's all so ridiculous you want to just laugh at it but it's our future and lived they're fucking with.... uargh

    In a parliamentary democracy, aisle crossing happens from time to time...

    I think there are a lot of folks that agree with her. but I certainly hope you are correct.

    Your politics are entertaining.  I will say that.  And the speaker. Man, that dude is awesome.

  • Can I ask a dumb question? Ok, that’s a dumb question too so I’ll ask two. What effect does Brexit have on the world? And since I’m an ignorant and selfish American, what do I care about it anyways. Besides the PM and Trump sharing horrible hair styles.

    Smoke a joint and watch the speaker in the parliament.  That dude is just straight-up funny.  When I get home from in the morning I usually try to watch the latest...what a riot.

    Oh yeah.  That fellow is just entertaining.  I have really come to like British politics as I watched Brexit unfold.  I like how close they sit across from each.  And some of those insults they throw at each other are funny.  Trump would never survive in a Parliamentary system.  He would leave in tears.

    I love your answer.  I agree.  No one knows.  What is the problem?  Is it the money that the UK gives to the EU?  I have read some article that state some in the UK do not like that the EU helps pooer EU financially to improve their lifestyles, to mitigate migration.  If that is true, I think that is money well spent.  Help the entire country in the EU, not the few who manage to get to a wealthier country.  But who knows.  Looks like it will not happen.

  • It seems to somewhat parallel the US. The rural folk feel unrepresented and don't understand how being in the EU helps them paired with the immigrants crisis; while the urban folk think they need the EU to be financially and globally sound/significant. If it is a money issue, I wonder how much more of their tax money has been wasted figuring out how to leave the EU vs just staying in.

    UK politics is so much funnier than North American politics. SO much funnier, lol. I do take the issues seriously, but damn, the way they behave and talk in parliament is just fantastically entertaining.
