Heard a noise outside, clock is slow. I opened my front door to the sound of my amazing neighbours whistling, cheering and shouting, I realised, I'd left the curtains in the sex dungeon wide open #NadineStories

Virtue signalling, in other words.
I wish him a speedy recovery.
But national tragedy is a bit pathetic. However wholly expected from OS.
Jeez I realise you are untouchable at the moment, but if you think losing our PM to this virus in the midst of the greatest threat to our society since 1918 isn’t a tragedy that makes you a pretty strange cove.
Every death is a tragedy to those close to them. Losing the PM would be highly significant and not very helpful in terms of how the government is subsequently lead through a once in a hundred years crisis, but I don't think him losing his life to C-19 would be any more of a tragedy than any other person.

No one will now ever be able to know if brexit damaged the economy or not. It will all be tangled up in the fog of corona virus.

Again it poinst to my earlier comment, do people who say Boris Johnson is the worst PM or are against is politics, actually aware of what Boris Johnson does? I mean, Johnson committed to law an extra 34 Billion for the NHS (the biggest increase in history by numbers), Committed to thousands more nurses and police and to invest in the poor areas up north. In response to a crisis he has issued the biggest package of support in Europe bar Germany, more than the larger French population gets, and involved all the other parties in various ways to help the situation. What exactly does a Labour mayor disagree with there to make him the worst PM ever?

We live in a world where more politically active people just rehash headlines and soundbites as dogma rather then respond to actual policies and actions.
He's a tory. He's the worst PM till the next one.

The 10 worst PMs EVER in history:

Johnson
May
Cameron
Major
Thatcher
Heath
ADH
Macmillan
Eden
Churchill
Chamberlain
Indeed, there has never been a single valid political criticism of BoJo. Ever. It's all an anti-Tory hate which exists for no other reason than it existing.
Plenty of valid criticism, but not from the examples we were discussing.

Leaving aside the tautology, or the fact I suspect you are referring to how he retained his job rather than got it, the size of the election victory has absolutely zero bearing on whether he was mendacious or not

Boris is the lying shitbag who promised to fight the third runway at Heathrow so he could get the Uxbridge seat then made sure he was out of the country when parliament had the vote. His career as always came first.

I remember the Diana one was weird. Was Goody up there with that. I think a lot of people could and would be bothered to go to their front doors and clap for Boris as long as it didn't clash with a strictly re run

Backing brexit was a career move. It had nothing to do with what he felt was best for the country
Boris Johnson said Britain’s continued membership of the EU would be a “boon for the world and for Europe” in an unpublished newspaper column in which he wrestles with his decision to back or oppose Brexit.

The foreign secretary has since insisted the column was intended merely as a tool for his own thought process, calling it “semi-parodic” in tone.

In a Telegraph article, written days before a published version in which he backed leaving, Johnson wrote of the EU: “This is a market on our doorstep, ready for further exploitation by British firms. The membership fee seems rather small for all that access. Why are we so determined to turn our back on it?”
https://www.theguardian.com/politics/20 ... ning-in-eu
One of Boris Johnson’s junior ministers, Sir Alan Duncan, said that the future Foreign Secretary backed Brexit only because he wanted to be Conservative leader.

The day before the referendum, he said: “I’ve always thought that Boris’s wish was to lose by one so that he could be the heir apparent without having to have all the… you know, s-h-1-t of clearing up all the mess, that’s always been my view of Boris.”

Ah ! Alan Duncan, the millionaire oil man, who felt MPs expenses weren't high enough.

A man who campaigned against honouring the result of a referendum, because he felt the working classes were racists who had thrown a tantrum and shouldn't have their votes respected.

Unsurprisingly he doesn't hold a high opinion of the democracy loving, platinum blonde bombshell everyman that is Boris.

No no no, hes not a liar, hes not bereft of principle, lots of people voted for him and they cant all be vacuous mugs so that proves it.

More the point is they don’t actually care too much about the things his political opponents think voters care about.

One of Boris Johnson’s junior ministers, Sir Alan Duncan, said that the future Foreign Secretary backed Brexit only because he wanted to be Conservative leader.

This is the prominent remain MP Alan Duncan who wrote to vote leave offering his services to lead the movement and only became a remainer when they told him to F uck off. :lol:

He would have got there with or without Brexit. Mr J is essentially saying he thinks Boris is a liar because he doesn't like Brexit, as if he gives a shit about "the economy"...
That's not what I said at all but if you are naturally that dishonest it is no surprise you can't recognise it in other people.
Oh FFS.

What the actual fudge are you on about?
Backing brexit was a career move. It had nothing to do with what he felt was best for the country
Boris Johnson said Britain’s continued membership of the EU would be a “boon for the world and for Europe” in an unpublished newspaper column in which he wrestles with his decision to back or oppose Brexit.

The foreign secretary has since insisted the column was intended merely as a tool for his own thought process, calling it “semi-parodic” in tone.

In a Telegraph article, written days before a published version in which he backed leaving, Johnson wrote of the EU: “This is a market on our doorstep, ready for further exploitation by British firms. The membership fee seems rather small for all that access. Why are we so determined to turn our back on it?”

One of Boris Johnson’s junior ministers, Sir Alan Duncan, said that the future Foreign Secretary backed Brexit only because he wanted to be Conservative leader.

The day before the referendum, he said: “I’ve always thought that Boris’s wish was to lose by one so that he could be the heir apparent without having to have all the… you know, s-h-1-t of clearing up all the mess, that’s always been my view of Boris.”

Why have you cut Mr J's post?

The bit you posted is a pile of old wank in any case. Remain was odds on to win at the stage Boris went for Brexit.
