Our Boris is pretty upfront, honest and does what he says. :D


Honest? Well that's not true ...... plenty of evidence of that from Brexit to Skripal Yeah ..... I mean he's been in the job for a few days so that's more than enough time to see him doing what he says he is going to do ! I think you get carried away by your own imagination.

If Corbyn had made such statements about what HE was going to do, some of it similar to BJ's promises, the cry would have gone up "But where is all this money coming from?" The difference between JC and BJ promises is that ...... JC actually knows where the money is coming from, that is why his enemies are trying every trick in the book to get rid of him ..... including accusations of anti-Semitism because he supports the Palestinians, and his solution to austerity scares the shit out of the Bankers!

LR will explain to you what 'QE for the People' is all about. :roll:

I have not made up my mind on Johnson as PM yet, it is imo way to early to have done that. Yet this idea that his 'performance' to date has been nothing but inspiring that he is the best person for the job is not one that I share.

Take a look at the Johnson / Neil interview and specifically the part about using Gatt rules post a no deal exit, which the link below is lined up to.



Johnson jumps on Neil, with relish, over his mistake confusing paragraph, with article, and 'lectures' him on the importance of getting detail right. Neil then delivers his knock out blow 'what about paragraph 5c'. Look at his bluster following that, the wry smile even as he blusters. When asked directly do you know what is in 5c, he does respond 'honestly' by saying 'no' and again the 'wry smile' from Johnson. He then resorts to the 'schoolboy' response 'well you did not know the difference between paragraph and article' as if they were both seeking leadership of the country rather than one of them doing so and the other being a journalist who's job it is to challenge those who seek such office.

Now all of this is very 'entertaining' and no doubt the 'wry smiles' and 'humanness' of Johnson all play well to the public. However If I ask myself do I prefer a PM, with less 'humour' and than Johnson, less 'humanness', less ability to play well to the public but that has a better grasp on the actual details of the issues he or she is talking about then I would say yes I would prefer that. As well as such 'performances' may play to the 'gallery' I do not believe such will play as well in a scenario where Johnson is round a table with the heads of 27 other countries in private. It is in these meetings that the 'real' stuff will be thrashed out.

Boris is a well known figure globally and for good reason.

he attracts a lot of attention because of his style, and charisma. the guy has an X factor about him and is one of the most closely watched figures globally.

The Brits have been judging Boris for a long time now. He has been a public figure for a long time and the world is judging him too and so far its a big thumbs up!

I watched that entire YouTube, and he hit the nail on the head.

He is on the right track. This defeatism is a train wreck and that has been proven so thus far over 3 years.

Boris Johnson is trying the more sensible tact.

I know you lot don't want BREXIT but I think its time you all accept it as reality. Whether it's a HARD BREXIT or not, BREXIT has a mandate and must occur and Boris needs to make it happen otherwise he too will be demolished like Theresa May was.

Hunt, was a vote of more of the same failed negotiation process as Britain the beggar which is never a sensible way to approach the EU.

All you hear from Boris is nothing but positivity, even if he has to go down the path of Hard BREXIT. he does not focus at all on any doom and gloom but focuses on the prowess of Britain to prevail and win. To me, these are the markers of someone who is a leader. Who can lead his nation even under extreme adversity and navigate perilous waters even with as little down side as possible and eventually come through as winners.

This is why he is such a strong politician that will garnish support from the public. He inspires people. When he talks, as a Brit I can imagine you would get goose bumps. There are few people who can do that.

I know the current Australian PM has this kind of affect on me and other Australians.

And he is a poet.

There was a young fellow from Ankara

Who was a terrific wankerer

Till he sowed his wild oats

With the help of a goat

But he didn’t even stop to thankera.

The one positive effect Boris has had on the UK is a respite from all the problems now facing the nation not least the weakness of our currency. He has given us all a good laugh, this American born Clown could make millions as a stand up comic. He is a natural clown. Roll on a couple of months from now and we shall all be feeling much ....happier until that is the day of reckoning wakes up from the lethargic state we are currently all in. Trump, a fellow American clown as well as .. Paphitis, another bafoon have fallen madly in love with Boris, they are not caring much about the economy of the nation, who gives a shit just as long as we are out of the EU, the world's largest trading market that has guaranteed a war free Europe for more than half a century. Who was it on this forum who once said that a war isn't that bad !! None other than ...general were :lol:
