    I suppose it’s inevitable in a country where not finishing first is routinely celebrated as a national triumph ( Hi Sonia …) that Paddy should think Boris winning the confidence vote means he’s lost it.
    When in fact the greased piglet has escaped once again thanks to bumbling plotters and no sign of an obvious successor – in both the Tory and Labour parties.
    Remember ” if you ain’t first you’re last ” – Ricky Bobby.
    Box Office Boris is here to stay despite what Twitter and the usual simpletons on here predicted.

      You obviously didn’t notice that most of the newspapers shown are English publications, and they all seem to agree that BJ has been damaged.
      But of course it’s your prerogative to believe whatever you like, despite the evidence avaiable.

      10:51 the papers go up. 5 minutes of reading the Boooooris headlines, and in with a very lame (duck) post. The wait wasn’t worth it Charger, while you tapped your fingers in anticipation of getting the first comment in.
      Typing furiously, you couldn’t go any quacker.

      41% of Tory MPs don’t have confidence in the lame duck. 41%.

      ‘While Johnson has survived the night, the damage done to his premiership is severe. Words have been said that cannot be retracted, reports published that cannot be erased, and votes have been cast that show a greater level of rejection than any Tory leader has ever endured and survived. Deep inside, he should recognise that, and turn his mind to getting out in a way that spares party and country such agonies and uncertainties.’

        This would be the William Hague who fought just the one general election as Tory leader in 2001 and suffered a landslide defeat before stepping down.

      Frankly the EU wants Boris gone
      Fact is Boris ain’t going and the NI protocol or backstop is unworkable
      It’s akin to Ukraine annexing Crimea
      Considering there is no credible working administration in NI it’s time the Irish government grew a set of balls and stopped being nothing better than KAPOs and told the EU we too can leave and we could have a United Ireland which with the republic inside the EU and the north outside the EU we would not need any protocol
      The change that the UK is proposinG is common sense but no it’s not good enough for the EU because they really want to punish the UK and we are the tool being used
      What’s more important to Ireland than the EU is a peaceful Ireland both north and south for the people of both traditions
      It time mehole started telling the EU that Ireland will no longer be the EU female dog
      We are a great country and it’s time we stood up and looked for a future maybe outside the EU making alliances in the big world

    It seems that ambulances across the water are busier than ever, dealing with an increase in heart issues.

    A remarkable and worrying increase of over 1000 call outs per month above what might be considered normal since 2021.

    Maybe Terry or one of his buddies in @huteighteen might be able to weigh in with a rationale and plausible explanation, that does not run counter to the government “safe and effective” narrative?

        it’s the tory donors who are calling the shots here – nadine dorries basically admitted as much. you know, the serial tax-cheats who were behind brexit are only keeping the fat spaff-bag around as long as he’s a useful patsy. he knows this and is no doubt working on his equally fat, tax-payer funded escape. the slippery git will probably pull it off too, leaving the incumbent to clear up his mess.

        My favourite events in the colonies were tiny Pitcairn Island – the smallest British overseas territory with just 35 inhabitants in the Pacific – which held a Jubilee dinner and was the final beacon to be lit on the night as it is s 9 hours behind the UK.

        And even good old Paddy was up for it.

        The King George V Cup was reinstated this year as a feature race at the Leopardstown Racecourse in partnership with the Dublin track, the British Irish Chamber of Commerce and Kmend.

        Stemming from the presentation of a specially commissioned trophy by King George V at Leopardstown during his visit to Ireland in 1911, the 1 mile 4 furlong listed race for 3-year-olds was first reinstated under the Royal title in 2013 and ran again this year for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Boris Johnson: The billionaires’ useful idiot

    https://www.middleeasteye.net/opinion/uk-boris-johnson-confidence-vote-billionaires-useful-idiot

    “…Johnson loyalist Nadine Dorries, secretary of state for culture, media and sport, went straight onto national TV and in a remarkable statement told Sky political editor Beth Rigby this: “The Conservative Party donors have said themselves that they aren’t going to support the party if the PM is removed. I think a number of MPs in marginal seats need to hear that, and need to understand what they’re doing: £80 million those donors have donated to the Conservative Party over recent times.” We can only guess how many Tory MPs were terrified into supporting Johnson by this stark warning, amounting to an attempt at financial blackmail, that Tory donors would stop issuing cheques if they voted the wrong way last night. But we can say for certain this was a dark moment in modern British democratic politics. A Tory cabinet minister setting out in stark terms that billionaires hold a stranglehold over the governing political party. I have never seen this openly stated by a senior, active Tory politician before…”

      The Germans dominated a very poor English performance tonight and your team were just very lucky to get the penalty kick nearing the end of the game.
