But I hope there are tradable opportunities out there as well, I wouldn't know where to start!
I pretty sure there is quite a history of the fav going into a conservative leadership competition not actually winning )

Hi all I'm hoping you guys can help me! (As after lots of research online I simply can't find much info on Thai topic.) I betted on the voter turnout percentage this year in the UK general election. (I think I have won if Sky news's turnout percentage is correct). HOWEVER I'm really struggling to find out when the official voter turnout percentage is released and by who?? And therefore WHEN I can see if my bet has won!! Any info/links on when I can check if my voter turnout bet has won would be greatly appreciated 🙏🙏

Tory prime ministers begin their premiership by immediately visiting Ukraine. Smart move by Starmer to visit the UK first. :)

Marcus Fysh, former Tory MP who lost his seat, says the Conservative party should be dissolved and a new party created out of the ashes. Great idea! :D

Rachel Reeves made a good start, providing it wasn't just words

Let's hope NIMBYism can be defeated, whether its from left or right

That James Dolan Sphere is London had the plug pulled (Sadiq Khan) despite the massive economic benefits it would have brought.

The new UK government is now going to have to find and pay out allot of money for service personnel who suffered hearing loss after 1987, its expected this decision in the high court on Monday will affect around 12,000 individuals. And all this ontop of the monies/compensation to be paid to those affected by the blood scandal, totalling 30,000 individuals.

Combined total cost of the above compensation expected to be around £14 billion.

Tory party can't organise a piss up in a brewery. 1922 committee vote went badly wrong when many MPs were given the wrong time and were unable to vote. :lol:

A respected group for a better Britain. :-) Oh dear. Sarcasm. The lowest form of wit. Guilty as charged.
Her behaviour at the announcement of her demise as an MP lacked any kind of dignity or respect for democracy. I guess I should be grateful she didn't make a speech and scuttled away being hounded by the BBC asking was she willing to apologise to her former constituents. Which she ignored. Bit like she ignored the OBR, BOE and the entire financial community. Funny that.
