    They should call by-elections. Wimps.

    Was going to call this thread ‘Labour Slit’ as they are a bunch of cunts. But I don’t want to pull a series X episode 5.

    Politics, religion and Red Dwarf VIII. These are the only rules.

    So the split in the UK Labour Party has come at last. Seven MPs led by Chuka Umunna have left the party. This is a sad moment. I am a big admirer of Umunna and hoped he would become Leader. I also admire Luciana Berger. And I fully agree with their rejection of Corbyn’s disastrous leadership and the festering cancer of leftist extremism that Corbyn has brought into the party. But I cannot help but feel this is a mistake. The last attempt to do this, the SDP in the 1980s, ended in failure, and so has every other splinter group that has left Labour over the past 120 years. What may be different this time is that the Brexit crisis is splitting both parties. If a significant number of Remainer MPs leave both Labour and the Tories, and link up with the Lib Dems and the SNP, they could form a Remain Front that might win public support as the truth about the total fraud that is Brexit becomes more obvious. But the likelihood is that this won’t happen, and that the split in Labour will just hand the Tories another term in office once they find someone (anyone) other than May to lead them.

    I can’t tell if this is a reference to the Better Than Life novel, or if it’s just a genuine list of things best not discussed on the site

    Bold of anybody to call the Labour party “left”. You don’t know what left is. England doesn’t have a left wing party

    Why did RamesesNiblickTheThird combine two rival factions of the Labour Party into one though?

    Politics and G&T do not sit well together.

    Who goes “I’m really mad about those labour MPs that broke away and would like to discuss it” and then goes to a Red Dwarf fan site full of people that aren’t even British, or are possibly too young to have voted in a general election.

    Can’t you go to the Daily Mail comments section and vent your spleen.

    I was too busy stockpiling rice and sharpening my hammer to notice.

    Who sharpens a hammer?

    This reminds me of my planned Sherlock/Thor flatshare crossover comedy that was going to be called Holmes Under The Hammer.

    That reminds me of my planned pornographic movie starring Katie Holmes and MC Hammer.

    Homes Under The Hammer was the original title for DIY SOS, wasn’t it?

    Why does Jonathan Pie always have his shirt done up but his tie loosened?

    Jonathan Pie was developed with the financial and editorial assistance of an international regime that empowers, funds and tacitly promotes concentration camps for gay men in Chechnya on a organised scale of ambition not seen since the Holocaust, and yet still the shitty fucking material is somehow *worse*.

    But hey, if an ethically barren Lord Haw Haw tribute act reading out Brendan O’Neill columns whilst unconvincingly flapping his ear cartilage is your thing, be my guest.

    Honestly, if anyone wants to hit me up on Twitter (@paulusmuller) and have a chat about this whole business, I’d be more than happy to engage – it takes very little to send me off on one about politics. But again, I’d rather not do it on G&T. It’s important to have a bit of headspace away from the 24/7 rolling political shitshow, some kind of hobby or activity that allows you to forget it for a moment. If you’re engaging with current affairs, especially politics, all the time – I can tell you from personal experience, it just makes you very unhappy and sends you a bit odd.

    Jonathan Pie shouts too much. Why is he so angry? Nobody wants to be shouted at and talked down to like that, he’s just preaching to the converted.

    I’ve never seen the appeal of Jonathan Pie. It’s just some prick in a suit making needlessly aggressive rants about stuff. Is it meant to be funny? What’s the target audience here? Plus, said rants are a load of bollocks

    #244722

    It’s bollocks if your a Tory I suppose.

    Why was Brilliant Kid in The Fast Show so positive all the time? J.P. man should expand his one-note repertoire with other hilarious comedy characters, show us you have range.

    Although saying that, I couldn’t stomach much of Sacha Baron Cohen’s last series because it meant being reminded of or learning about depressing shit that I just don’t need to worry about in life.
