... I have more faith in Nessie than Mop-head. Nessie (to my knowledge), has never conspired to have someone's kneecaps broken with a hammer, or told barefaced lies while a govt. minister, or given out public funds to dubious women while MoL, or had the police attend his home after nearly beating his current 'squeeze' black & blue, or unlawfully tried to close down Parliament. .... Have I missed one out?... Oh, yes; - OR promise to die in a ditch; - and didn't.

I see there's photos today of Mop-head visiting flood hit areas of the UK and using a bucket and mop to help clean up....
How kind he is.... & all for no reward... That's the thoughtful, generous, caring man he must really be...

I prefer the clip of him waffling on about how there will be absolutely no checks between NI and GB. It strips away the veneer of credibility he is sometimes able to project. UK Trump indeed.

Yes, it's a great clip. Shows him up perfectly.

Here's something I'd like to have been present at :
Reid’s contempt for Johnson runs much deeper than Brexit. Their paths crossed in 2006 when Reid managed an England Legends team in a charity match at Reading that somehow included the future prime minister. Johnson was editor of the Spectator when it ran the notorious “Bigley’s fate” article that accused Liverpudlians of wallowing in “their victim status” and repeated the lie that drunken fans shared responsibility for the death of “more than 50” Liverpool supporters at Hillsborough. There was no charity in Reid’s pre-match team talk.

The former Manchester City and Sunderland manager recalls: “He’d had a go at my city, certain individuals and football fans, so I told him in no uncertain terms what I thought of him.” And that was? “I told him he was a fat, lying twat and a disgrace for what he wrote about my city. Cowardly, he shit himself. He didn’t write it, he sanctioned the piece by [Simon] Heffer, but that was the only part I got wrong. The man is a proven liar and he has refused to apologise in the House of Commons when various MPs have asked him to.”
Peter Reid: ‘I told Boris Johnson he was a fat, lying disgrace’

Bit fatist, perhaps but I think he can be forgiven under the circs.

Is Fatist an allowed term in the UK now? Or is it reportable as alarm, harassment & distress .... Maybe 'girth' is more neutral.
I was looking at some pics of 60's stars the other day and by today's standards, Marilyn Monroe & Jayne Mansfield would now be called fat ..

Fat bloke who sanctioned an article about Liverpool and their football club or a terrorist sympathiser who hates Jews?

We've got a tough choice coming if these are the summaries of each candidate.

Too true Scamp. And, being brutal about it, that's apparently what Brits want - otherwise how did these people use a broken system to get to where they are......The UK's population has allowed the very worst type/s to obtain power and influence; - Farage being the absolute pinnacle imo.
When someone can whip up race hatred in all but name it shows that he and his EDL ilk have extremely strong roots. Apart from EU exit I can't determine any policies on health, education, etc.

Imagine the impression on the EU side. First impression certainly must be that this British government has no intention of living up to its agreements. And that would explain a lot about why the EU demands legally binding guarantees rather than just a handshake and "goodwill", as many brexiteers would have it.

If Corbyn gets into power he'll demand the EU shake the hand of everyone in the UK. It's only fair....It's the communist way.

A very interesting point that.
I believe it took the EU a full 12-18 months, before the Euro-cent dropped that they weren't negotiating with a British Govt, but the Tory Party
They'll never get caught like that again.
