Next question - who do we choose as our role model: Leo?

...or Cal?

yes indeed but as one rat leaves perhapsm anoter rat joins...lets see Dominic Raab



here's Dominic Raab's level of commitment to EU worker protections:

1 - 'exclude small businesses and start-ups from having to pay the minimum wage to under-21s, and other rights'

Or....rat hides on ship in order to emerge later and at last moment save it from sinking by taking control of the bridge....

If a ship is sinking damn all can be done to save it from the bridge unless there's a chance to run it aground though if it was the likes of Davis and Johnson they'd be more likely to run it onto rocks in a tide race ensuring there'd be few if any survivors.

What is truly sickening is that Rees Mogg is at between 4 to 1 and 13 to 2 as next PRIME MINISTER. The Fifth Reich will be alive, but in England. The shame.

Melanie Philips goes one better than suggesting Jawohl Reich-Mogg

"I’ve said it before: draft Farage. Sack May, give Farage a peerage, make him party leader and PM – at least until UK really does properly leave the EU.
Too fanciful? Desperate times need desperate measures; public faith in democratic process now in danger".

Like the way to restore faith in democracy is to put an unelected man with fascist leanings in charge of the country?

Not sure makes any difference to public faith in democracy - which the public is too thick and too lazy and too selfish to either want or understand - whether the fascist leaning Leader is elected or not. Might as well let the Tories show their true colours and have R-M. Even some of them will be in the camps soon enough.

".... Raab has been appointed Brexit secretary by Theresa May …."

Oh how I keep hoping that there's a typo extra "a" in that name.....

Look on the bright side. Her Britannic Majesty's former Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs will have more time free for lying down in front of the Heathrow bulldozers. How long before the fantastic Mr Fox jumps too?

I wanna drive one too - but only after they've let me crawl underneath it and disable the brakes....
