You don't seriously believe that Brexit hasn't gone well (i.e. negotiations so far) because there was a TV programme about it?  Roll eyes

Re: New Prime Minister - Boris Johnson



In my experience whenever someone feels the need to qualify  a comment with no offence intended, or no disrespect intended, no malice intended that is exactly what they mean.....


I'll add to that; "I'm not a racist but, ..." is almost always followed by a racist statement.

You should more expect libdems to vote for Brexit, than you would expect any Brexit/ukip members (if there were any) to vote Remain

- whatever any referendum result was - as stated quite clearly by Farage.

 


Oddly, I've seen a couple of polls that suggest that something like 2% of the electorate, who wish to remain in the EU, would vote for the Brexit Party Ltd in an election! (and these people are allowed to vote! Huh)

Boris loves people to see him as a jester or clown,  but his chosen facade hides a very astute and powerful intellect, people underestimate Boris at their peril...

His always struck me as a bit of a Brutus, a smile and a stab.

According to my rough counting she was in that post from  ~ March. When did May sack her?

No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

Re: New Prime Minister - Boris Johnson

Since his promotion he has certainly taken on a more serious, almost statesmanlike, persona.

He is certainly not a details man - but not afraid to ask someone nearby for any clarification required.

He has hit the ground running but let's not hope it ends in a fall.

I suspect rather more than 2% of socialists voted for the Conservatives under Mrs Thatcher, and did so three times!

BREAKING FAKENEWS

 

Boris ramps up No Deal Brexit Preparations

 

Rumours are being heard that Boris has hired 6 of the used Glastonbury porta-loo's for use at the Dover lorry Park at a knock down price of 6 million pounds through one of his mates British Virgin Islands based supply companies in preparation for the expected average of 20,000 lorries and drivers at the 800 lorry park/field.

(Unsubstantiated rumours claim the supply company is headed by Priti Patel and an unidentified Blond male using a foreign name)

 

Boris has allegedly also re-purchased one of the water cannon at the knock down price of 1 million pounds (through the same company) to 'jet wash the loo's in preparation for use'.

 

Unsubstantiated reports claim Boris said the cannon would not be used on the lorry drivers if necessary - especially (but not exclusively) any of those darn foreign ones trapped there without paying the parking fees of £3 for 5 minutes

The parking meters are allegedly to be supplied by the same company that supplies and manages the drop off charge meters and barriers at UK airports, with all proceeds going to a British Virgin Islands based company.

 

 

Boris declined to officially comment when seen at the seat of a water cannon yesterday.

I see you immediately recognised it.

Mind you - at least mine was honestly labelled ...
