I've honestly lost track of the cesspit of backstabbing claim and counter-claim. You'd think Starmer with his legal background would have spent the past year smoothing stuff over and putting these cases to bed rather than leaving them to fester like this.

I saw her on Marr over breakfast yesterday and gently caress me she's a non-entity. No charisma, no presence, no ideas, no ability to read the mood of the electorate, just nothing. Of course, she attended the same school as Michael Gove (Robert Gordon College in Aberdeen), love that meritocracy.

The Irony being that the other fee paying schools in Aberdeen hold Robert Jordan's in contempt, and the University doubly so regarding the jumped up technical college.

Fucks same, I'm trying to buy a $30 3D printed case for an analogue to HDMI converter from the US, but the company that makes them stopped shipping to the UK as HMRC haven't processed their application for a VAT ID and won't respond to queries about it either.

Love this section of her Wiki page that paints her as a highly principled individual

"During the 2019 general election campaign, she argued in support of Labour's plans to increase corporation tax, because she believes "those with the broadest shoulders" should contribute more."
