Twitter doing us proud by getting #TurdReich to trend in response.

Funnily enough some of the social media activity I mentioned above is in relation to this:
This Davies MP, What is he talking about? I know what he's alluding to but what the other person said is a fair and just statement with no reference or heated, vile language, He's just trying (Very badly) to deflect his own hypocrisy.

It's interesting as if you click onto Twitter there's a number of conservative mps doing similar, for what could barely be described as abuse, and certainly not the type of stuff you would want banned. It is almost certainly the type of stuff you would say to someone's face.

Nothing to do with the fact that the Tories are trying to bring in some laws regarding SM? :rolleyes:

I sincerely hope that you are not alluding to making "leatherwear" compulsory DB. Especially from a party usually so averse to the wearing of masks.
Mind you, it would give a fresh purpose to the job of Chief Whip I suppose.

With the Tories nothing would surprise me "Back to Basics" springs to mind.

There's party discipline and then there's this:
"Many Conservative MPs posted almost identical statements on Monday morning after a weekend of anger over the vote".

"It would be irresponsible for any government to spend an estimated preliminary cost of anywhere between £150bn to £650bn to transform the entire sewage system".

A £500bn pound uncertainty?
Really?

How about planning spends to deal with the worst parts of the system first?
Pouring sewage into rivers is something the water companies have gradually turned into an almost default setting while shelling out huge amounts to shareholders and directors.


Not impressed.
At all.

As regards public service contracts,the original estimate for the Holyrood Scottish Parliament building was between £10 million and £40 million. It actually cost over £400 million so I am not overly surprised with the range of figures for the whole sewage system

We all know an original PSC is worth diddly squat as all of them end up at least 10 times the amount, HS2 anyone?
