    Default BBC Programme State of Chaos

    Anyone watching this programme? State of Chaos. It certainly is enlightening as to what the state of play has been over the last few years in the UK.

    Yes, watched it, and we were in chaos, no doubt. Boris was forgiven by getting us out of the EU. The one who you just cannot believe, is Truss, trashed the economy in little more than a week, and walks away with a figure of up to 115000 £ a year, for life. I know its not classed as a pension, but call it what you will, for doing a job very badly, and getting the bullet in fact. Lets hope she is not re-elected.

    It is par for the course Keith, just look at some of the "captains" of industry who have stuffed up decent companies then walked off and straight into another highly paid job of similar standing.

    Whatever happened to the recent announcement by Brian and Vernon - No Political Posts??

    By your introductory #1, You have the audacity to advise that the renowned leftie luvvie Laura Kuenssberg has launched a new TV series that in her opinion explores 'chaotic political events' under a Conservate Government.

    Snopsis: - 'From the Brexit referendum to resignations, elections, prorogation and the pandemic, Laura was the BBC’s political editor for seven years and held a ringside seat as these events unfolded. She’ll investigate why this period became so toxic, both in public and behind the scenes, and add her own reflections on the period.'

    You have blatantly flaunted the recently amended site rules which if unchallenged will eventually cause discourse or as previous - vexed and hostile exchanges when others don't agree with you.

    Here in Oz we have the classic case.

    A little Irishman took an airline that was doing reasonably well and stuffed it up.
    Then walks away with one of the biggest hand outs ever.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    Life is too short to blend in.

    Keith I also thought that was the figure she got but would appear not so. You may find the link of interest.

    yes i knew that james, in my post i animated that it was not an actual pension as such, but an allowance, even in your link it says most PMs draw that amount , or near to it. Whatever its way too much in her case.

    - - - Updated - - -

    intimated,(bloody spellchecker), most EX PMs draw it or near to it each year.

    Think tonight was the last episode in the programme. I enjoyed it. Certainly an eye opener the 3 programmes as to how bad things became since 2016.
    Westminster becama circus and the a laughing stock around the world. Will we ever get back to behaving like a democracy.
