Yet another. Stevie, give us the odds on who it is.

The corruption of the Tory party has been evident for a long time but our media have have ignored it. They were saying the labour pledge to invest 28bn in green energy was impossible. However no one ever seems to mention the 37bn given to Dildo Harding for the test and trace fiasco. People should go to prison.

Also, after 14 years of austerity why has our national debt now 2.7tn which is about 4 or 5 times bigger than when we started "saving money" They should all be asked.

Big rumours Rishi Sunak had 50 bet with Paddy Power  :D

Stephen Paul

Scottish Secretary Alister Jack told the BBC that in April he placed a successful bet that the election date would fall between July and September - after losing two similar bets in March.
Mr Jack who is standing down at the election after seven years in Parliament, says he has not breached any rules.
He had originally told the BBC he had made £2,100 from one of the bets - but later claimed his comments were "a joke... I was pulling your leg".
On Tuesday, Mr Jack admitted he had placed a £20 bet at five to one - which would have netted him a return of £120.

From the BBC

"A BBC Newsnight investigation has learnt that up to 15 Conservative Party candidates and officials are being scrutinised for alleged betting on the timing of the election by the Gambling Commission."

The world is full of idiots. You'd have to be really stupid to bet on this as a prospective or current MP.

Tory desperation is getting more and more evident. Sunak in an interview with Sam Coates (Sky) today when asked about the betting scandal he just kept on saying "I can't answer that there's an ongoing investigation" time and time again. Sounds just like Boris and his mates trying to cover up partygate.

Corrupt bastards.

I see the National Front are taking control of France

Not yet but it isn't looking good

Northern Ireland
Sinn Féin has become Northern Ireland's largest Westminster party, winning all seven seats it won in 2019, while the Democratic Unionist Party lost three of the eight it held at the last general election.
