Re: The new James Bond is......

...big rumor it is Tom Hardy. That would be an excellent choice for 007 if true. Though I'd love if the series returned to the more Connery rougher, more ice cold killer or how Daniel Craig was in Casino Royale. I think Craig has been a little wasted as Bond. Casino Royale was excellent. There when...

Breaching an agreement, and international law, doesn't seem like a very wise move when we're just about to need a number of trade deals around the world. Why did BoJo make an agreement that was so bad that we have to renege on it within a year. How does such incompetence not lead to his resignation?
