^^ Think I'll reserve judgement until I get to the ballot box, mate and as ever look at their manifestos...I'm less worried about who they are, more worried about what they'll do :-)

Haven’t we just learned that we should be really much much much more worried about who they are?

No - what we're seeing now is everything around what he's done/doing...

I will say what absolutely makes me physically sick to my stomach is Johnson guffawing about getting the ‘big decisions’ right on covid to nod and wink the to anti lockdown covid deniers in his party and his core vote.

I mean sure. You delayed lockdown initially causing untold unnecessary deaths. You allowed large events to continue allowing covid to take a foothold as you told people to go round and shake the hands of covid patients in hospital. You discharged people with covid into care homes causing thousands of again unnecessary deaths. You handed billions over to Tory friend and failed business woman dido Harding for a Track and trace system that never worked ignoring established public health expertise. You ripped up procurement procedures and in turn sent billions of pounds of tax payers money to fradusters that has been written odd. See above, you also sent billions to Tory friends who delivered nothing in return ignoring in many cases establishes suppliers. You resisted a second lockdown against all scientific advice and mocked suggestions one would be needed, before belatedly having to impose one over Christmas, a delay which again cost thousands possibly tens of thousands of lives.

And during all of this you enjoyed parties and events and thought yourself above the law. And then have the gall and cheek to tell everyone you’ve done a good job so some crimes should be ignored.

It’s gaslighting the electorate.

Five imaginary pounds this report comes out Friday, just as the house recesses for the weekend.

You don't reckon they'd want to "spin it" rather than just leave it in the public domain over the weekend and allow folks to make their own minds up? I mean it might come out Friday, but I reckon they'll want it spun first...

Boris wants to delay as long as possible so he has time to strong arm his rebel MPs.

Actually when it does surface I'd love Starmer to have to isolate again and let little missy Doc Marts wade in, I'd pay to watch that.

:lol:
No mate I just want that blubbering fool to get what he's due, comeuppance.

And on another note, I see just how useful the EU leading Germans would have been in an EU army seeing they back off from playing their role in NATO, once Vlad has them by the balls we should leave them with the tears in their eyes.

You must know what you're getting yourself into if you sign up to do PR for the Met.

Obviously the abolish the police lot are mental, but they might have a point there.

She did. That's more than the additional money we'll get out of the trade deal with them.
