Re: Boris Gate

I wonder whether Boris can swim or even walk on water?

Despite claims to the contrary apparently Harold Wilson couldn't do either, and on 10th August 1973 was rescued from drowning by a public schoolboy on holiday in the Scilly Isles.

Maybe if Labour had had its wish with regard to public schools the whole course of history would have changed?

Re: Boris Gate

I have just heard on Vine that whilst there are currently shortages of several essential medications there are plenty of laxatives available.

Re: Boris Gate

"Boris Johnson is poised to give up on Brexit deal talks with the EU after speaking to the German chancellor, Angela Merkel, with a No 10 source briefing that an agreement looked “essentially impossible not just now but ever”." (Guardian)

Deal or no deal, the national debt set to double next year to levels not seen since the 60s and pound dropping. Things are working out quite nicely for Johnson and his pound shorting mates!

The promised sun on the uplands looks like to be wildfires after all!

Of course

If the EU made it easy then perhaps someone else might want to jump ship

Following Boris’s statement on fusion power, I now consider him to be:

A Perpetual Moron Machine of the First Order...

I'm half Scots, so when they bail out of the U.K. I'll apply for citizenship.
