Subject: RE: BS: Brexit & other UK political topics
Well, John, your interpretation of burying the hatchet, etc., for about four years seemed to involve disaffected right-wingers (always a relative term, of course) in the party cold-shouldering the properly-elected party leader, publicly dissing him, concertedly using vile antisemitism slurs against him and refusing to serve in his shadow cabinet. Then, when you finally get rid of him (by doing everything necessary to make sure we lose an election, in concert with the Tories and the media) and get your own man in, appeal for unity and the burying of the hatchet. I ask you, which of those two sides demonstrates lack of principle? Fine to bury the hatchet as long as you've got your man in there first, eh?
And chickens always come home to roost. Now that we've got our safe pair of hands installed, just look at how bloody useless he is. So much for let's ditch principle and get Boris out at any cost.
