    A Bill going through Parliament today may result in a very rare December election. All sorts of motivations and hazards are involved.

    It just seems so weird that you guys (ferreners) can just have elections whenever you want them (or not).
    Every problem is the result of a previous solution.

    There is a Fixed Term Parliament Act but this bill is a dodge around it. Where there is a will ....
    Boris could not have done this by himself because of the Act.

    Heaven only knows how all this pans out.

    Electioneering is now in progress. US threats to NHS by higher drug prices are under discussion, along with worries about crap US food standards.

    Mr Corbyn claimed Boris Johnson's EU exit deal will "unleash Thatcherism on steroids".
    "Given the chance, they'll slash food standards to match those of the US where 'acceptable levels' of rat hairs in paprika and maggots in orange juice are allowed," he will claim.
    "And they will put chlorinated chicken on the supermarket shelves."

    The US can feed itself. The UK hasn't been able to do that since the First World War. Idiotic food standards just make that problem worse.

    Oh, and in other news, Hoyle elected as new Speaker.


    Has the House of Commons finally admitted it is a house of cards?
