Paul Flynn thinks you're gullible

Newport West MP Paul Flynn isn't happy with a recent photo of empty Labour benches during a debate on Wales on July 11th. It's worthwhile mentioning the July 11th date again just so that people are quite aware of the date, which as you should know by now was July 11th.

Take me to your leader - 2016 edition.

Back when Labour held their leadership election last year I ran a comparison of the four horsepeople of the apocalypse that were standing. As a lot of Labour MPs clearly didn't like the results of last years contest, and because it's quite easy to do, here's the updated version featuring this years entrants.

There are no shocks contained within this image.

Did your MP vote against new nukes?

The latest figure on renewing the UK's nuclear weapons stands at between £167 billion (MoD) and £205 billion (CnD) depending on whose figures you believe. Both eye watering amounts are calculated on the initial cost plus 30 years worth of upkeep.

New Prime Minister Theresa May opted to call a vote on renewing the nukes, presumably in order to piss off Scotland a bit more and as an easy way of causing further division amongst Labour.

But enough about that, let's get on with showing who voted to spend billions of pounds on weapons of mass destruction and who didn't.

Wouldn't you prefer a good game of chess?

Scumbag Labour - Fingers Crossed

The Red Tories down in Cardiff West apparently haven't quite gotten over Neil McEvoy giving Mark Drakeford a fright in the constituency election before getting elected on the list.

Before an AM is allowed to take up their role in the Senedd they have to bend the knee and crawl on the ground like a worm and swear fealty to the English queen, Betty Battenberg.

Like so many others before him, Neil chose to cross his fingers as a sign that he was begrudgingly repeating some words in order to represent the people who elected him. This is where Labour's faux-outrage and hypocrisy comes in.

Scumbag Labour - I'r Gad Alun!

A video started doing the rounds recently which shows a young and skinny Alun Davies speaking quite frankly on camera about the Labour party.

Alun used to be a member of Plaid Cymru until he switched allegiances to Labour. The video appears to be from the mid 2000s when I myself was young and skinny. Clearly we've both visited the same spare chin shop at some point over the passed decade but enough of that. I've decided to share the video because it's interesting how someone who had such anti-Labour convictions could become swayed into becoming a Labour AM.
