I just read two pages of the bill and it was a piece of shit designed to allow foxhunting while saying it is illegal. Here is what i read, i highlighted the bit that makes it useless for you. I suspect i'm the only person in the whole online discussion who's read it :p

That's a fair point though, although I doubt that's the actual reason Sinn Fein voted against it

Yeah I'd heard of her, from BBC politics editor and wife of a Spectator Editor to spokesperson for the Tory party, but the BBC has a left wing bias, right?

Admittedly I only consciously heard of her when she got that job in the first place.

Meanwhile mid circus they have voted the Nationality and Borders bill, which i've not read yet but is a prity patel gig.

Isn't Boris such a clown though

I've started to think this circus is Priti Patels power push.

1 year old stories coming full formed designed to fuck with Boris, just at time when he might have to ramp up restrictions, as her super right wing but *Very Bristish* them-uns bill makes major steps towards law. Just saying it here so i don't have to convince people I called it retrospectively.

i have seen several comments/tweets/what have you, along the lines of 'why are people paying more attention to the boris circus than what patel is pushing through' and i don't comment because i think i'm naive in pointing out that there's way more popular anti-tory leverage to be had in focussing on the parties than there is on the patel bills.

I kinda think Boris brought in something though - essentially during Theresa may's era, he acted as an opposition politician, she got ousted and he became unelected leader of the UK. I suspect that winning over both the party and the public looks really like too much work to the rest of the tories now, who previously would have expected both to be a requirement. Uk is kinda rudderless, next election supposedly 2024 which seems like a long time since May came in, but if Patel can A: Oust Boris B: be kinda definite and hardline and C: get her mad citizenship bill through where she can just make 1-2% of potential opposition voters second class citizens then that'd see her in good stead for 2024. Kier starmer is sorta a john major, for when people want to be bored.
