Yep. Hard Brexit looked like a breath of fresh air compared to her ideas.

In Germany, Shia Criminal Biker Gang Named After Apocalyptic Prophecy Subject of Mass Raid by Cops

Quote:
This is insane. A gang made up of Iraqi and Syrian youth in Germany have named themselves after an end-of-times Shia prophecy. They're threatening young women and carrying out other criminal activities https://t.co/qZo2RnvjXY

Ramadan Rage 2019: Jihadis Massacre 364, Injure 404 in Two Weeks

Quote:
Islamic terrorists have carried out an estimated 76 attacks in nearly 15 countries since the beginning of Ramadan this month, killing at least 364 people and injuring 404 others in the first two weeks of the holiest month for Muslims, a Breitbart News tally shows.
And, with a day or so of the Ramadan Bombathon left...

Hey, what's the final tally for the Ramadan Bombathon?

Ramadan 2019 Deadlier than 2018: Taliban Responsible for over 40% of Nearly 2,000 Casualties

Quote:
The number of deaths went up by about ten percent, from 841 last year to 911 in 2019. The overall number of casualties, including injuries, slightly increased by less than five percent from 1,855 (841 killed; 1,014 injured) to 1,917 (911 killed; 1,006 injured) in 2019.
More:

Quote:
During the month of Ramadan in each of last three years — 2017 (1,639), 2018 (841), and 2019 (911) – jihadi organizations and other Islamists have killed 3,391 civilians and troops.
B...bu...bbbut...One hundred people OD'd injecting themselves with poison last year in Vancouver! Moar taxpayer funded injection sites!!!

Oh Yes: Boris Johnson Threatens to Withhold $50 Billion Payment that the UK Supposedly Owes the EU Unless the EU Plays Ball on Brexit

Quote:
Sargon of Akkad has long argued that the UK, far from being helpless in the Brexit negotiations, had the high cards -- they supposedly owe the EU $50 billion for whatever reason, and they could just tell the EU they're cancelling the debt, unless the EU starts acting more reasonably.

Theresa May refused to even discuss this.

Johnson just threatened it. With Trumpian vigor.
Nice!

Burned Brexit Party Ballots, Voter Fraud Under Investigation.

Quote:
According to the Politicalite website and confirmed by local police a man by the name of Alan Roddis posted in a closed social media group called ‘Peterborough Politics’ about burning Brexit Party ballots.

“She [Forbes] got nominated [elected] because 3 people including me burned over a [sic] 1000 votes for TBP [The Brexit Party], and laughed while doing it” wrote Roddis.
Bold mine.

Looks like Boris Johnson is likely to steamroller the remaining contenders for the Conservative party leadership, leading by a mile. Dominic Raab could also deliver a hard Brexit. Hoping to see a smackdown of Jeremy Hunt and Michael Gove, the two Theresa May wannabes.

Where's the hue & cry from the left?

Iranian foreign minister affirms Iran's right to execute homosexuals

Quote:
Iran’s foreign minister reaffirmed last week his country's right to execute people for homosexual behavior.

Mohammad Javad Zarif defended the practice of killing gay people by saying that “these are moral principles concerning the behavior of people in general,” in an interview with German magazine Bild .
More:

Quote:
Iran is not the only country to prosecute homosexuality, which is punishable by death in 11 other countries: Yemen, Brunei, Mauritania, Nigeria, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, Somalia, Sudan, United Arab Emirates, and Pakistan.
Hmmm... What's the common thread between those countries? It's on the tip of my tongue. Something very obvious...

All you need to do is to change the constitution to make that legal. CM taught me that trick.

About half way through the leadership debate, and it's terrible. Johnson didn't show, Raab is on message, and the rest are largely pointless.

Gove comes off as way too artificial, even for a politician (example: very awkward body language...clearly recently trained). Stewart is very genuine with his genuinely bad ideas, so good for him.

If Hunt wins it would surprise me. He reeks of remain, despite the Brexit rhetoric. He would make a good "Third Way" labour or libdem candidate.

Javid is okay but middle-of-road in terms of being genuine and pandering.

That's a weak turnout for a party that has been in power for about 10 years.

Update: Raab is out.
