  1. I would add Stiepermann to that list.

    Did we miss Hanley?

    Did they actually abstain, or not bother to even turn up for the debate?

    Were these 'friends and colleagues' wearing white coats and looking rather worried by any chance?

    Perfect description of Paul and far more polite than 'dribbling idiot' which was the phrase I had in mind after reading his posts this afternoon.

    The race for maximum stupidity seems to be back on, Swindon seems to have upped his game with really staggering stupidity whilst Paul is certainly maintaining his consistent complete nonsense but seems to be rather plateauing - perfectly understandable when he's been talking total nonsense for three years, must be quite difficult to find that extra gear

    ..........and the day that Swindon (or anyone else for that matter) gets to vote for judges then we really are done for!!!!! What planet does this guy live on?

    Not surprised, she's always been too chummy IMO and never really has anything insightful or unexpected to say anyway. Not really up to the job as far as I can see but seems to fit the current BBC, and their desire not to offend the government.

    Very fair summary, I'd say. Should really have retired, or at least changed role, a good few years ago.

    Yes he was but he was also a Labour activist whose daughter was rushed into hospital the previous day - TBH even if our security services were involved in the way you suggest I don't think they're on the ball enough to have picked that up Still leaves the question of why his advisors are allowing him out and about when he's clearly demonstrated on multiple occasions that he's a walking disaster? The natural campaigner tag is interesting - clearly he was credited with a lot of success in the referendum campaign but what we have seen from him as PM has been a very poor public speaker at set pieces, unable to think on his feet both in the HoC and when interacting with the public, and completly unable to handle the hostile receptions that perhaps he wasn't expecting. The bumbling bonhomie act which has worked so well for him over the years seems to have collapsed as his deceits are called out and he appears to have nothing of substance to say in its place.

    Indeed, and I guess we can only speculate what those 90,000 odd Tory party members who thought they were voting for an election winning leader make of him now, as he tours around producing one PR disaster after another Would be great if the Supreme Court does its bit as well and gives him the kick the nuts he so richly deserves - that still seems a tad unlikely but the Scots certainly aren't pulling any punches, and also as someone on here suggested a few days ago have made the point very strongly that the Scottish version of the law should be upheld as it supplies a higher and therefore better standard of behaviour required whereas the English version would mean undermining the standard set by Scottish law. Anyway here's hoping....

    Or it could just be that most ordinary people are fed up with a lying toff taking them for idiots and telling them absolute b*ll*cks? Having said that I posted a while ago it was baffling why they don't simply keep him under wraps and away from the cameras/public as they did almost completely during the leadership election. Don't think its any surprise, or that any organisation is required, for Boris to be on the end of abuse by the public whether in the UK or Europe - so if sabotage is involved it is only by his own advisers who are presumably telling him that these electioneering public appearances are going to boost his and the Tories popularity - let's hope he keeps following that advice

    I certainly don't expect to see him in Yorkshire again any time soon

    Ignoring the first part of your rant because it is your normal delusional, totally unfounded and unsubstantianted nonsense, the second part is worth exploring a bit. Increased our debt - that would be the responsibility of the Tory party and their policy of austerity which has more than doubled our national debt since taking over in 2010. Lowered our standard of living - see the above answer and add in not just the economic carnage of Tory austerity but it's highly damaging impact on the NHS, policing and public services generally in the country. Extinguish the UK - think you'll find that is also a home grown problem and that Brexit (which is essentially driven by and wanted by England rather the whole UK) combined with the Tories reckless disregard for the Union is what ensures the break up of the UK will happen in the very near future - so you got one thing right but for entirely the wrong reason. Staying in the EU might (possibly) have prevented Scottish Independence and Irish re-unification - Brexit and its cack-handed implementation virtually guarantees the opposite, and has even given Welsh nationalism a new lease of life.

    May be missing something here but I can't imagine how Boris could get a second prorogation to make this work, whatever the outcome of the Supreme Court deliberations on the his first version.

    Obviously I'm not telling you anything new in saying that Swindon hasn't got even a hint of a clue what he is talking about otherwise he wouldn't regularly post such staggering stupidity, nevertheless those Gromperekichelcher sound quite tasty - will maybe give them a try

    Our Prime Minister agreed a deal (two deals actually, if you count the Stage 1 agreement) and signed it. It was also essentially the deal which the government had asked for which involved compromise on the part of the EU so we definitely made a deal - we just didn't honour it, we also reneged on the Stage 1 agreement we signed if you cast your mind back a bit further. Now we have changed our minds (again) and are asking for things which are impossible - none of this is the fault of the EU but of two stupid British Prime Ministers who don't even understand the detail of what they are\were trying to negotiate and both of whom have been more than economical with the truth throughout the process. The problems have been made entirely in Westminister and have made a laughing stock of the country, and trashed our good name for honesty, fairness, competence and adherance to the law, and you think that the EU's arrogance is to blame Unbelievable!!!!!

    Indeed they do, we can only hope that he manages to set a new record by being the shortest tenure ever as PM - I think he still has time to manage that? But I don't think the UK will ever live down the humiliation of allowing such an utterly unsuitable idiot as Boris to become our Prime Minister. As @BF said a few minutes ago, for it to be Luxembourg of all the 27 to hammer home just how diminished our status in the world is beggars belief.........can Johnson really be that stupid?????????

    Couldn't agree more, especially with regards to 2016/17. It's amazing how quickly Theresa May has completely dropped off the radar but she has much to answer for in simply making up her own stupid and incompatible red lines instead of firstly trying to shape a deal that was in the national interest and secondly had a chance of being accepted by Parliament.

    You're braver than me in making a prediction at all at the moment But your's sounds likelier than many being banded around at the moment, and probably the best outcome we could hope for, from where we are now

    Sadly, that's a very fair point and I hope I'm not being ridiculously naive in believing (especially given what we've already seen in the last few years) that although the lunatic fringe clearly exists that it is also very small (and not particularly bright!).

    I think it must be those little voices in his head - I imagine that's where most of his ideas come from, sometimes topped up by the Daily Express of course.

    So, should it have been a penalty?

    Think the new change to the rule is really daft but nevertheless given that it is now the rule last night looked absolutely clear cut penalty to me.

    To be fair that was David Davis, who never has had a scooby, not even when he was Minister responsible for this sorry mess

    Seems entirely logical to me - in England the drink drive limit is 80mg, in France it is 40mg (maybe lower now) but whatever, if you're caught driving with 60mg you are innocent in England, but guilty in France. Apologies if I've quoted the wrong limits, but the general principle is its best not the drive after drinking, or in Boris's case lie to the Queen.
