I think the answer is that nether Trump nor BoJo are really politicians. Trump is an odious business mogul who has found his way into politics and doesn't like the word 'no' and will ride roughshod over anyone who gets in his way.

BoJo was a Journalist who became an effective but very autocratic London Mayor who never really learnt the art of politics. Like Trump he doesn't like the word 'no' and like Trump he will ride roughshod over anyone who gets in his way.

Most of us have come to despise all politicians for the actions of a few, which is probably unfair; but most politicians have at least learned how to speak to one another in a civil manner and know and how to get things done without creating dangerous divisions. Trump and BoJo lack that skill big time.

Re: Boris Gate

Ms Arcuri was able to defend herself by saying that the story should be about a very successful female entrepreneur not about Boris.
Her mother said Boris did not **** her.
Boris' many personal visits to her flat were for "one to one computer tuition."
Nothing to see here, move along... full propriety was observed.

BoJo was an MP before he became Mayor of London. Anyone who holds a political office is by definition a politician. Whether they're any good at it is another matter entirely

Very interesting - particularly (with reference to Johnson):

"In a letter to Sir Mark Sedwill, Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell expressed concern that big Conservative donors who backed Johnson had a financial interest in a no-deal break."

And:

“As his sister has reminded us, he is backed by speculators who have bet billions on a hard Brexit – and there is only one outcome that works for them: a crash-out No Deal Brexit that sends the currency tumbling and inflation soaring.”

Re: Boris Gate

What I failed mention in Post 105 is that the astute business woman Ms Arcuri made the shrewd decision to choose two excellent locations for the Registered Office of her company, Hacker House. One was in the vibrant hi-tech community of downtown Macclesfield, the other in her much visited apartment on Shoreditch High Street.

I hope that this information is further proof of Bo Jo’s expertise in identifying winners and backing them to the hilt.

Technically you are correct but by no stretch of the imagination is BoJo ia politician. That is how he sometimes achieves big things in short order but rubs everyone up the wrong way in the process.

Re: Boris Gate

Now appears he may have partaken in a bit of footsie (thighsie actually) under the table with a journalist.
How long before the pole dancer sells her story?

See the front page of the Daily Mail....

If she would **** Boris for £126G then I'm sure the papers can afford the full lurid details!

She must have been desperate for cash, hang on a minute though, he didn't bed her, it was just "technology lessons"

Mind you if he didn't get anything for a hundred grand he is even more useless than I imagined.

As a member who has been censured previously by Ian for the use of "Rich Language" and also had it pointed out this is a " Family Friendly" forum, I fear some of these posts are descending into the same gutter that Boris is accused of residing in.
