POTTY mouth!

This afternoon.

In the House of Commons.

British PM Boris Johnson returned for Prime Minister’s Questions after 21 Tory MPs last night  voted through a motion which paves the way for legislation to block a no-deal Brexit.

The questions kicked off at 12 noon.

In the last few minutes, Mr Johnson, speaking of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, said:

“He [Jeremy Corbyn] makes a contrast of this Government and his own proposals. The contrast could not be clearer. We think the friends of this country are to be found in Paris and in Berlin and in the White House and he thinks they’re in the Kremlin and in Tehran and in Caracas. And I think he’s Caracas, Mr Speaker.

“….we are growing the economy, he, by contrast, would put a £300billion tax on every company in the country, he wants a tax on homes and he’s calling incessantly for a general strike.

“The Shadow Education Secretary says that their economic policy is, and I quote Mr Speaker, by your leave, shit or bust. I say, I say it’s both.”

The Liberal Democrats have no “principled objection” to supporting Jeremy Corbyn as an interim prime minister, party sources have told The Independent.

It follows criticism over party leader Jo Swinson’​s rejection of Mr Corbyn’s plan to lead a caretaker government to stop a no-deal Brexit.

Senior Tory Ken Clarke and former deputy Labour leader Harriet Harman are both prepared to lead an emergency government to avoid a no-deal Brexit, Lib Dem leader Jo Swinson has said.

Senior Tory rebel Dominic Grieve, meanwhile, said he would “not facilitate” having the Labour leader at No 10 temporarily.

Meanwhile…

Germany expects Britain to crash out of the European Union without a deal, a leaked document has reportedly revealed.

The leaked finance ministry memo said officials believe a disorderly Brexit is now “highly likely”, according to Handelsblatt Today.

The publication revealed on Thursday that the government believes the UK will crash out without a deal on October 31, given Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s demands that the Irish backstop be dropped from Theresa May’s Withdrawal Agreement.

Dan O’Brien.

The seer of the Indo.

His prophecies are legendary.

 Jeremy Corbyn’s election [to leader of the UK Labour Party] matters much less than the hoopla would suggest: he won’t be leader for very long and will never become prime minister. As he will never get to implement the policies he espouses, he is much less relevant than the British media’s blanket coverage of his every utterance would suggest…

There are many reasons why he will quit or be ousted within a few years. Among the most important is that he will not be able to win over even a decent sized minority of his parliamentary Labour party…

….All this will quickly lead to chaos. Conflicting signals will confuse and frighten voters. Infighting and ineffectiveness will alienate others. Labour’s poll ratings will tank: later if Corbyn gets a novelty-factor bounce; sooner if he doesn’t…

How does he do it?

Corbyn will never win power, but he could still be disastrous for Ireland (Dan O’Brien, Irish Independent, September 17, 2015)
