    For the moment, that's all he's good at doing.

    Hard times are ahead for the UK, perhaps more so than for the rest of Europe. The UK was skirting a full recession before Covin-19. With the delay necessary for the entire EU to recover - which will be at least another year - I don't see how the UK can prevent further unemployment.

    Let's hope I wrong ... ?

    Brits know a honest fellow like Boris when they see one. Not a hoity-toity Savile Row aristocrat. Kind of like the Americans' love affair with Donald Trump who they elected twice only the second time didn't count.

    "Honest fellow?"
    Did you not read the news about his parties during Covid lockdown?

    I sincerely doubt if there has been another Prime Minister like this one.
    One who has gone through his conscious life telling lie after lie and perfecting the art of slithering.
    One ho dare to lie to the Queen!
    and to try to disable Parliament!
    One who actually used lies and deceit to break ties with his country's allies, convince fools that everything will be fine, even better than fine, and when things are not fine, continues to lie. (case in point...the UK triumphed in the vaccine rollout because it didn't follow the EU's lead. THE UK NEVER HAD TO. THE LEAD WAS A SUGGESTION. THE UK COULD HAVE AND DID GO ITS OWN WAY.
    Bozo suggested this morning that the EU tried to force the UK to comply.
    One who blames everyone else but himself when he fouls up.
    One who prefers to play lego with country's finances than invest in crises like social care. Imagine what the cost of HS2 could do for people in care.
    One who promises to care for everyone and ends up redecorating his own living quarters using state money.
    One who pretends not to know what a party is when people are unable to mix in important family situations.
    One who looks like something out of a comic book wherever he goes.

    The very worst thing about the effects of Brexit is Boris Johnson. Without Brexit the UK might have had some semblance of a government run by a responsible adult. The rest of the difficulties brought about by Brexit may fade in time. HE is the worst catastrophe of them all.

    they are all like that.....the only difference is that they seems worse when one's political stripes are the opposite to the PM one's railing against.....we've had many weapons grade morons in parliament at least this tosser hasn't taken us into a faked conflict and told us it'll be all over by Christmas..... and its still being played out decades later.
    No this is just a wee bit too contrived and in comparison it doesn't come close to Blair and his arse licking tribe of acolytes......I wouldn't get too riled by this muppet.

    IMO it is the personal nature of his lies that infuriate me. They are somehow beyond politics. Like someone has trashed your home and laughed about it.
    Happily I only have to loathe him from a distance. He has no control over my own life...but sympathy for a country I have lived so long in cant be shed overnight.

    He sold out to the Globalists. He needs to take off his mask and liberate his people.

    Boris Johnson is awesome. He's like the UK's version of Trump, hair and all...

    If you mean he's a fat, law breaking, liar then yes, Boris is a dollar store Trump.

    He's like Trump insofar as he doesn't give two shits what anyone thinks and pretty much does what he wants...

    Really?
    Is that why he apologised to the House and the Queen after getting caught having an illegal party the day before Prince Phillip's funeral?

    Not even Trump tried to close Congress/Parliament down.
    He is a self absorbed habitual liar who hasn't changed since he discovered that lying often impresses people.
    What is so disappointing is that he laughs at the electorate. He really assumes they are his to play with.

    Well if that is how you assess your national leader, you get what you vote for.

    Wait they actually made parties illegal?

    The only crime I see there's allowing your government to create such a crime.

    It was a government established covid lock down with specific rules about how many people could be in an indoor space and for what reasons.

    Of course it was a nanny State action.

    How's the saying go, I'd rather have dangerous freedom......?

    I promise to give your heart felt wish all the weighty consideration it's so richly deserves....

    Enjoy your safe bondage. I'll take the risky freedom I don't need the government to try to remove every danger from my life
