I would be worried that they would just be looking to offload and let others do the heavy lifting.

There are over 6,000 in the British Isles.

Plus what's effectively a concrete multi storey car park off the coast of Felixstowe, which has it's own money.

Just be grateful that there wasn't an "obligation to buy if promoted" clause in Brandon Wiiliams' contract.

McKenna rumours
at 20:43 26 May 2024

UPDATE: I have phoned my contact and his reply has me very worried about things.

Apparently McKenna has taken to wearing an "I'm Number One so why try harder?" t shirt.

"It's so un-Kieran-like." He wrote.

I asked him if this is a sign he could be off elsewhere, and he said "Well, he's right here, right now."

McKenna rumours
at 20:16 26 May 2024

Yes, I have it on very good authority that he thinks Marlon Brando is shockingly over-rated as an actor.

Apparently Martin Pert was raving about a Blu Ray Godfather Trilogy Box Set, and Kieran just went off on one.

Then he said something about "People on the South Coast have a much greater appreciation for more naturalistic and minimalistic acting, rather than Brando's scenery chewing."

And then he stormed out.

I can't reveal which member of the staff told me this, but they aren't the sort to make stuff up.

Ten figure investment?

Are you sure???

That's a billion pounds plus!!!

No disrespect to Plymouth, but the kind of people who have £1 Billion to invest in something aren't the kind of people who would choose Plymouth!

That sort of money would get you Aston Villa or Ajax, with funds to invest.

Maybe a couple from Manchester moved to Wales.

And one supports Man Utd, and put a flag up to wind up the other one, who supports City?

And, after a couple of days for the Amazon delivery to come through, they retaliated by putting up a Man City flag.

My female life partner supported Liverpool for years before I met her.

Our sons support Ipswich, though. (And they are both named after members of Burley's squad. She caught on with the second, but I got away with it!)

This idea is gaining traction.

You genuinely heard it here first.

None of you upvoted it.

Just me saying it.

(I also predicted the result of the US Presidential Election on here correctly, and explained why each of the swing states that went Biden would do so.)

You heard it here first:

Given that no senior Tory MP will want to put their name to the defeat, and most who are staying will be prioritising getting the vote out in their own constituencies, the obvious caretaker leader/PM is Lord Cameron, who is a polished performer, has the necessary experience, and, crucially, doesn't have to defend a seat at the Election, so can travel the country campaigning.

This is the only rational solution. The alternative is one of the renta-gob ERG boys with a thumping majority grabbing the gong for their ego.

Scene: The kitchen at the palatial private home Rishi Sunak's wife's Dad's family trust own, where they really live, rather than "that pokey flat in Whitehall". Thursday, 9.00pm.

Akshata Murty: How was your day, Rish?

Rishi Sunak: Oh, you know, the usual. Met some woman for a photo opp about some law she wanted me to name after her kid. I was on autopilot, to be honest, just nodded along and shook her hand. Then I stood outside in the rain and announced a General Election.

AM: Sorry, what???

RS: Yeah, you know, you said I should be more decisive...

AM: Oh, Rish... So when does the campaign start?

RS: Oh, it's started! I've fired the gun! "Bang!!! And they're off!" Hahaha!

AM: Rish, you do know my parents are coming for dinner on Saturday, don't you?

RS: Oh, umm, I *think* I'm due to be in... [CHECKS PHONE] Lockerbie In the morning, then back down via Sellafield...

AM: RISH! YOU ARE NOT MISSING DINNER WITH MY PARENTS!

RS: Oh come on, Ash, be reasonable! I've got an Election to win...

AM: Rishi, I've told you a thousand times: you are not going to win the bloody election, and you need to get used to the idea. And if you miss dinner with my parents, how will you ask my Dad for a job?

RS: Ummm...

On Friday 24th May, Rishi Sunak announced that he would take a day off from campaigning.

If you read between the Boris and Reeves headline you will see that they are branding themselves as the "battleground" newspaper, ie the editorial decision is to platform both sides.

That is a huge move from the Mail.

Johnson is a vastly expensive political columnist, and they choose the most ridiculous quote possible and undermines it by straight-quoting Reeves.

In other news, Michael Gove jumped from Sunak's Titanic yesterday, but the Daily Mail didn't ask their other leading political columnist, Sarah Vine, his ex-wife, to give the inside track on that one for their front page.

The other angle is that that front page features Johnson in a photo, Reeves directly quoted as a headline, and Starmer's name in big print (albeit in a negative, but laughable, quote) but half a week into a General Election campaign and the Tory Prime Minister isn't relevant enough to find a place on the front page of the Mail. And front pages are curated to ensure sales. The Mail has concluded that Sunak is a turn off.

Re his answer to the Titanic question, I just wish one of the the journalists had been quick enough to respond to his answer with "So you are ordering "Full steam ahead!" then, just like the Captain of the Titanic?"

It's essentially says:

"The Guardian's editorial line is that McKenna clearly has a decision to make, because a lot of noise has come from clubs (plural) shouting his name, but there is nothing but silence from McKenna or Ashton, so nobody actually knows what he is going to do, and anybody who says they do is talking Suffolk Punch sheet."

Thatcher was hated more, by just over half the population, whereas Sunak's Tories are held in utter contempt by about 70% of the population, and probably disdain by the 30% who will hold their noses and vote for them.

Lots of long-term Tory voters will simply not turn out to vote.
