    Yeah, but youth vote now matters.

    Loved when she was talking about the conservative and unionist party. Talked about the union, how we were stronger together and lambasted those that would seek to destroy the union because of narrow minded nationalist ideals.

    However, brexit is brexit.

    Which two years ago the Sun declared a Stalinist idiocy from Miliband. And now champions.

    Hmm.
    I've seen a few right wing comments about the turnaround from talking about the greatness of free market capitalism mid week to basically trotting out the Miliband manifesto at the speech. It doesn't seem to be going down well either way.

    this prankster does make it does seem like it would be remarkably easy to assassinate a UK prime minister, although theresa seems to be doing the bulk of the work for you.

    Haha, apparently May used a line from Jed Bartlett in her speech.

    the last E of Everyone also apparently fell off later on.
    What's going on? It's like something from a Terry Pratchett novel. Metaphors becoming real. The country is actually literally falling apart?

    At this point, I won't be surprised when the wheels do fall off the Tory Party bus. When they have to swerve to avoid a potential banana skin, whilst perfroming a u-turn. Distracted by the dinasaurs hiding from the f#cking invisible elephants.

    Building more council houses is the only one that really broke through the fuck ups. She also reaffirmed the energy price fixing policy from the election.
    And she had to immediately roll back on the council house pledge stating that the additional money equated to a measly 5000 homes a year.

    I mean, it has been an hour or so before she said it, I think that's about fair for a rollback.

    If I was going to interrupt her speech and be arrested, I would have at least wanted to be arrested for a better crime. Like throwing a shoe at her head.

    Of course he got arrested over it, I expect it'll still be worth it, though.

    We can't call him a terrorist because he's white.

    Yeah, Brodkin's been arrested multiple times for previous stunts against politicians and HMV already. He's used to it by now, I'd have thought.

    Love that May wore a bracelet featuring a Marxist feminist icon.

    Can only assume she's converted to Corbynism and is committed to bringing down the government from inside.

    I'm surprised there hasn't been more made of that. After he gave her it, he walked into the row where the whole Cabinet were and started talking to them. So he could have taken the whole Government out. With ninja skills or something, I presume they search folk for weapons.

    Imagine if Ann Widdicome is the Designated Survivor?!

    Her first act would probably be making sex illegal.

    Ha, didn’t realise Elmer Fudd was in charge of security. After her “I don’t need to understand how encryption works” comment this week I don’t think she’s capable of embarrassment though.

    He's still struggling to adapt to his human form, then.
