I think the boofhead has left the UK? :lol:

The Tories escaped pretty lightly; not too much damage was done to their electoral chances.

But Boris laughing at the Trumpet in full view of the worlds media has just put an end to his post brexit "Special Trade Deal" :lol:

To be fair though the only difference it will make, is that today NOBODY will believe the deal is possible, as opposed to yesterday when it was NOBODY EXCEPT BORIS =;

Johnson's managers seem to be hell-bent on him avoiding any more pre-election debates or one-on-one interviews with anyone that may get him to step on his dick.

His stage-managed visits hither an thither are also managed to keep the uninvited and most of the media at arms length.

Looking at the news from both sides of the water maybe he is making a double bet that he will be in power and Trump won't.! :-"

That's the problem. The fund managers and bankers are all shamelessly spouting nothing less than flagrant and unsubstantiated forward-looking statements based solely on their near-term profit taking and nothing actually factual or remotely close to reality.

A direct challenge from the BBC - let's see if Johnson has the cojones to take it up.
Andrew Neil has laid down the gauntlet to Boris Johnson by challenging him to the BBC interview he has so far refused to commit to, saying it was “a question of trust” for the prime minister.

Gazing directly down the camera to an audience of millions, Neil said Johnson was the only leader of a main party not to have faced a prime-time grilling by him.........

BOJO is just worried that he wont be able to remember which lies he told to who. When you lie as often as he does you need to check your records before answering questions =;

Got it in one there statts. I was listening to 5 live where an interviewer quoted what the Conservative's Brexit secretary had stated was policy which contradicted what Johnson had just stated as fact. As usual, Johnson just kept speaking over the interviewers repeated pointing out that it was contrary to what his own staffer was saying.

And then there's Corbyn who, after being called for possibly fencing Russian disinformation with those secret Tory plans to hive off the NHS, seems to have found yet another 'confidential' government report that apparently undermines their stated Northern Ireland Brexit strategy.

^ Not sure if being "the only party willing to abide by the 2016 referendum" amounts to a hill of beans once they are all back seated in Westminster. The Tories own tranche of persistently Remain MP's consistently rejected predecessor May's successive bad deals and if we are to believe what we are being told, Johnson's deal isn't a whole lot better and in some key aspects, it is worse. I find it harder to believe the glib promises and broad entreaties that fall from his lips. Each day he will have to do megatons of obfuscation, hypocrisy and outright lying to keep that gaggle of irresponsible and deceitful parliamentarians all onside. Like the plate spinning magician, that's why he's in such a rush.

In the meantime, HMS Bojo just took a torpedo on the stern quarter.

British diplomat in US resigns, saying she can't 'peddle half-truths' on Brexit

"The British diplomat in charge of explaining Brexit to the US government, Congress and public, has resigned, saying she was no longer prepared to “peddle half-truths on behalf of a government I do not trust”.

“I have been increasingly dismayed by the way in which our political leaders have tried to deliver Brexit, with reluctance to address honestly, even with our own citizens, the challenges and trade-offs which Brexit involves; the use of misleading or disingenuous arguments about the implications of the various options before us; and some behaviour towards our institutions, which, were it happening in another country, we would almost certainly as diplomats have received instructions to register our concern,”

I see the link is to the Guardian. That alone, IMO ,renders it not worthy of reading.

Well this guy is clearly an astute observer, but probably hasn't got the same degree of love that Boris enjoys from some on the Map:

NSFW!



I particularly liked this bit:

A much more precise definition of, and explanation for tactical voting than John Major, Tony Bliar or bigtits Swinson could ever, ever come up with.
