In my case never wear white (over) pants as you can be sure they will be left looking mucky within 5 mins. :oops:

“The security arrangements for the Manchester Arena should have prevented or minimised the devastating impact of the attack. They failed to do so.”

The party that still constantly seeks to blame others for so many problems of its own making, admits for once that it's been in power for the past 11 years...
A source at Conservative Campaign Headquarters said "by-elections are always difficult for the governing party, particularly 11 years into government".

This entitled tweet from the unsuccessful Tory candidate is also something to behold; remember he's not angry, just deeply disappointed with the electorate:
I am deeply disappointed that the people of #CheshamAndAmersham have, under the extraordinary circumstances of a by-election, voted for someone else to represent them in Parliament. Our work to regain the trust of local people begins today.

You'd of thought Ally C would have kept his head down when it comes to 'Lying PMs.' Anyway, It's not a 'We are now in a Crazy world' It's always been the case that you can't call the Pm or any other MP a liar. Nothing new there. If we got rid of all the lying MPs there wouldn't be any left
Only in Parliament is it forbidden anywhere else it is acceptable.

Well yes indeed Sarah, which makes the complete collapse of the Labour Party vote to the lowest ever return since the war even crazier. Seem like the voters are fed up with politics all together.

Churchill said something similar. I'm sure Boris would appreciate being compared to Churchill, but my recollection is that Churchill's similar-sounding statement about the proximity of 'the end' actually meant the complete opposite.
