I like the formulation on Twitter: "Lame Duck a l'orange".

Coincidentally I am currently listening to "Mechanical Meltdown" by Electric Six.

"Mechanical meltdown, it should be thrown away... broken machine is here to stay".

I would have thought the classic "Gay Bar" would have been more appropriate for the DUP...

Girl, have you got any money? I want to spend all your money! I want to spend it etc, etc.

Also works for the general attitude of Northern Irish business to Arlene Foster during the ash for cash business.

It strikes me that Mrs May and Mrs Foster have something in common. Not least that if either of them had a shred of conscience they would both have resigned by now.

Judging from the interview he's giving at the moment he plans to, shall we say, "constructively amend" things, including the Queen's Speech. Much better than straight sabotage.

'kin Nora. The bloody Labour party and in particular that utter idiot McDonnell is in danger of losing the gains they made in the election.

Moron. Why would you talk about leaving the Single Market?

Because promising to get continued membership of the single market is probably a hostage to fortune that can not be rescued.

Because you don't tell everyone that. Only an utter dipshit would tell everyone that.

It might be that the end result is leaving the SM, but the Labour position should clearly be to get the best possible deal for the country and opposing the ideologues in the Tory party who want to leave everything because of those damn foreigners. By tipping their hand now, they're giving succor to David Davis to go to the EU and spout more bollocks about getting a better deal than we had in the EU.

I've enjoyed every minute, as it once again proves party politics to be the exercise in institutional hypocrisy it has always been. If it wasn't an establishment career for Oxbridge PPE graduates, knowing what's best for everyone else would be a pathological condition with a range of medication and high street charity shops.

Conviction politicians can be counted on the fingers of two hands and most are in the Lords. Even the estimable Corbyn has only gained his current position by keeping his trap shut on all the issues he used to be vocal about. To see them squirming is a ray of sunshine to remember in the stormy days to come.

That is VERY clever. Respect [not the George Galloway kind] to whoever came up with it.
