As Jeremy Corbyn was elected leader of Her Majesty’s Opposition on such a revolutionary and audacious ticket, it’s no surprise that today’s PMQ’s left many feeling extremely underwhelmed. To his credit, the untenable buzz surrounding JC and his disciples would have made anything less than an entrance via trumpet and horse somewhat disappointing (though I’m… Read More Corbyn’s PMQ Debut: How he went out for a cheeseburger and ended up in the Ritz.
What is the point of the House of Lords?

Thank god I was born in 1997. I only had to endure 10 months of the primitive, barbaric, medieval world that existed before the messiah (Tony Blair) came to us and graced us with the Human Rights Act. Don’t know what I’m on about? Haven’t your parents ever told you the terrifying tales of our… Read More Attention all Liberals and Scaremongerers: the Human Rights Act is a piece of parchment
