There will always be an England

 Well, English PM Richelle Snuck has pulled the pin on the grenade he has been holding. 


And Sir Keefe Stammer (I say nuffin') will be the next PM. 


You just wait 'Enry Higgins, citizens of England, to see how your lives immensely improve under the new Labour government. 

The English public health care system is widely admired around the world, but it seems it is grossly underfunded. Over to you Sir Keith.

  4. I was surprised Sunak moved up the elections when he didn't have to. Maybe he just wants to get out now.

  5. The NHS is not doing very well at all. It's not just funding. It needs a radical overhaul.

    1. Any big system could do with a radical overhaul. "Radical overhaul" usually ends up meaning "not enough extra funding."

  6. Some of the recent prime ministers in the last few years have been less than wonderful. Yet the Conservatives kept winning. Perhaps British voters think differently from you, Andrew.. and me.

  7. I hope your prediction and the indications of the polls come true - with Sir Keir Starmer leading Labour to a clear victory over the The Bloody Tories.

  8. I like your clear opinions and your clever way of sharing them. Not to mention your brevity. Aloha from Honolulu

  9. I missed this on the news last night, came into the room in time to see the current PM then the segment was finished. He didn't last long, has it even been a year? Are the English people pleased with the change I wonder?

  10. They all have to be careful what they wish for - trouble is after a 6week campaign most are just as confused as they were at the beginning

  11. Ugh. Politics. It seems like a mess everywhere.

  12. Was surprised when I read there was a snap election in England on the internet news.

  14. Nothing much will change without a major injection of money into any of our failing services and none of the leaders, Labour, Tories et al, will increase taxation because it isn't a popular move, but where will the money come from otherwise? Labour bankrupted the country the last they held power.

  15. Sounds like a mess. Maybe they should rejoin EU. I was a little surprised its not caused more financial mess, the isolation. But maybe it has.

  16. Nothing much will change. We will go on in the same old way and go on failing in the same old way. I predict there will be an extremely low turnout to the polls because people are so fed up. The trouble with that is that the fanatics will win.

  17. I hope they end up with something better than what they've got!

  18. Kylie we end up with human beings with all their flaws sadly. Britain has become like a great liner, sailing into disaster, don't think there are enough tug boats out there to save us. But I will vote!

  19. PS: will there also always be a Scotland, Wales and [Northern] Ireland?

  20. Well here we go, I'd say his timing is perfect, he needs to get out and get a hat-tip for honours before he burns the place down..

  21. Surely he can't be thinking that they will stay in power after an election. Very strange, Andrew.

  22. Right now, I'm quite obsessed with the UK election. It's far more interesting than the US, and likely more closely aligned to ours and some of the many issues we've encountered. They've also been through a rollercoaster of prime ministers, and a long-term conservative government. My favourite podcast is the NewsAgents which features the woman who did that devastating interview with Prince Andrew. Check it out :)
