    Out of interest, has anyone made any bets for the next General Election and if so what have you gone for?

    I have not yet bet, but I think there will come a time when “conservatives most seats” is good value.

    Wait, we must feel sorry for these poor dinghy riding asylum seekers who have crossed deserts and…

    Oh.

    “Official data released on Thursday has confirmed suspicions that Albanians are now a prominent national group among the asylum seekers travelling across the Channel.”

    “Albanian gang activity is “rising up the security services’ list” of priorities because of the surge in arrivals from the Balkan state, it is understood.

    Police say they have a stranglehold over the cocaine market in London and the south-east of England. A National Crime Agency (NCA) report in February said Albanian gangs had in the past five years imported expertise gained from industrial-scale cannabis farming in their home country to the UK.”

    On the subject of Truss and Macron, she should have rejected the question.

    "Friend or foe? Come on. While we might have our disagreements, he's not in the same category as a genuine foe of the UK like Vladimir Putin."

    Given Truss has won the leadership contest she didn’t need to go chasing votes of the members who are overwhelmingly anti Macron and anti EU .

    Her comments are a big sign as to what the next two years are going to be like . Constant battles with the EU and a very divisive period where any criticism of the governments approach will be labeled as unpatriotic by the Daily Hate and the rest of the sycophantic right wing press .

    I very much agree.

    She obviously enjoys appealing to baser instincts and populist fantasy, and we should expect that to continue.

    The only consolation is that the mood is settling in for a change of government, regardless of how much bullshit she spouts.
    Swapping her out for Wallace or Barclay in about a years time should at least narrow the gap a bit and save seats in the final year to the election though?

    Given that Albanians can enter the UK on a tourist visa after paying £20, why would they want to cross the Channel on a dingy?

    One third apparently have prison tatoos, per the border force. Maybe the visa process involves checking their Albanian criminal record.

    Or just ‘friend’ like Sunak. Was she just trying to be different? Who answered first?

    The UK is going to self destruct due to the stupidity of its supposed liberal “elite”

    I am reminded of Robert Conquest’s Second Law of Politics: The behavior of an organization can best be predicted by assuming it to be controlled by a secret cabal of its enemies

    That’s the UK, right now

    We're about to have an utter loon as PM. Or, at best, someone prepared to act like a loon because she thinks it will advance her career.

    TalkTV hustings:

    * Liz Truss says 'jury's out' on whether Macron is friend or foe; Sunak says he's a friend

    * Sunak says LizTruss would make a better PM than Johnson; Truss says Johnson

    * Truss says energy bills are 'massive issue' but 'bunging money' at system is not answer.

    Graham Brady better not book any holidays this winter.
    I’ve not seen evidence of Truss somehow surprising “on the upside”

    She needs the loons onboard to survive in post. Therefore, she’ll be a loon

    It is LOL.

    The membership are about to elect IDS mark II to the premiership. It will one hapless mishap and gaffe and on-the-hoof bonkers policy announcement after another.

    As the gaffes mount she will redouble her efforts by making up even more bonkers quiet bat people nonsense to sell.

    Meanwhile the wall of economic shit will pour over her useless Cabinet.

    I am convinced there will be a leadership election next summer.

    I’m starting to think she won’t take them into the election too. There will be like the coup against IDS, no member vote, and Wallace or Barclay, or someone similarly acceptable to most MPs will lead them into the general election.
    It would have to be Wallace by coronation a la Howard 2003 if she was replaced like IDS before the next election. We cannot have 2 leadership contests in 1 parliament
    Wallace will be off to head up NATO by then
    The next NATO SecGen has to be ideally..

    a) A woman
    b) Eastern European or Baltic. 'Emerging Europe' as the Americans say.
    c) Have good relations with the EU as the US long term strategy is for the EU to defend Europe's territorial integrity.
    d) Not look like Homer Simpson.

    Baldy Ben ticks none of those boxes. Kaja Kallas or Daria Grybauskaite seem much more likely.
    "New Europe", no?.

    Well, presumably because they are smuggling either cocaine or migrants into the country.

    What they are not doing - one would think - is coming to the UK by boat in order to claim asylum.

    Try reverse-engineering, that might help you work it out. Do it slowly so you don’t tax yourself.

    Albanians are largely free to come to the UK

    Yet thousands are coming across Europe and getting in boats at Calais so they can cross the channel and be absorbed into the UK asylum system

    Huh. Wonder why they’d do that
