I suspect that KnC is like many/most Labour supporters, who have no clue as to their leaders' intentions.

Come to think of it, that puts them in the same position as Conservative supporters just at the moment.

When I'm privy to Labour policy, I'll ensure you are the first to know.......and the rest of the world on JB.

You'll have to excuse me now, I've got the inconvenient matter of attending the funeral of a very close friend of 43 years who took an unexpected hangar flight a couple of weeks ago......

Boris says we're out on the 31st Oct, Hunt says 'maybe' if he senses a mutually good deal is within grasp. I sense Boris can blow 'with the wind' if he chooses and who would actually object if he was persuaded to subsequently defer the 31st by a few weeks if the ultimate prize can be clearly seen to be within the EU/UK's grasp? Note I underline clearly.

With Hunt actually negotiating in Brussels (nice guy) and Boris standing behind him (bad guy) it could actually be a winning combination. Of course Hunt may simply turn the offer down.

And it looks like "Duck and Cover" Boris is well up the Devil's bottom :-

Sell anybody out for a packet of Harribos. An audition for the "Handmaid's tale", perhaps ?

After viewing that UFO video on this forum, I'm looking at that Trump photo in the BBC link and thinking, "Trump is just the earthly name adopted by the orange man-lizard alien Chimera that escaped from Area 51, hmmmm ?".

What price now and in the future for that mop-haired, "Just William"/Bunter lovable rogue, eh, 60+ers of the Conservative Associations - you and you're Health care costs are going to be first in the pie.

Don't be obtuse, first BBC link, BBC front page (They may well have changed it since I originally posted) middle article had co-joined photos of the ambassador and Trump giving his powty 1000 yard stare - I just thought he looked like some orange faced man/lizard chimera and possible escapee from Area 51.

Obviously too "Wacky" for this forum.

Yellow Triumph where ou's gone ? You post "I don't understand your post" and then do a moonlight deletion.

Or reading between the lines, he won't want to upset them.........

Yes I posted then deleted it swiftly afterwards. The reason being I simply didn’t understand your post - a link to the New Zealand cricket team (?) all seemed a bit too bizarre to me. I still see no co-joined pictures of Trump with anyone? I thought I would reply then thought otherwise - hence why I deleted my post.

Maybe, but he has clearly stated on numerous occasions that if he canít see the prospect of a good deal by the 31st Oct he will take us out on a no deal Brexit. That will upset quite a few on the continent I would have thought? Or have I missed some subtlety to your post?

One does not enter into negotiations by publicising one's capitulation.

He has shown himself in the past to be full of vengance for any percieved petty slights with a thirst for revenge. This will be pretty much what he sets out to do, using whatever apparatus of the state he can. There is however lots of dirt on Boris and his friends be it Darius Guppy or others. I can see those whose role is preservation of the state taking a longer term view which means Boris has a year.

No chance, why would anybody take that on when Boris will undermine and blame at every oppoprtunity. Let Boris assume the role.

I'm guessing that most of those asked the question as to who won the debate thought that it meant who would become PM.

Reportedly over 75% of voting papers had been returned before the debate even took place.

Very honest of you to admit this (slight) departure from accepted methodology.

All postal votes are sent out at least 2 weeks before election day.

The vast majority are also almost always returned within 24 hours of receipt.

So totally in accordance with normal UK voting procedure. Unsurprising as the vote is run by the Electoral Reform Society.

Sorry, I though you meant in the poll as to who won. That seemed the only explanation for their counter intuitive decisions.

So, the B boy has charisma? What exactly is charisma? Charisma is very simply a mixture of mystery (how many offspring does shagger have?) and enthusiasm. He's got that in spades. The blonde ambition to be Prime Minister....beyond that? well who knows? But any way, thats's the "secret" of charisma. The art of politics is the obfuscation of common sense, and they all rely on the fact that common sense isn't very common.

In what seems to be a deliberately calculated attempt to erode support for Boris Johnson, several papers and media stories claim that Boris Johnson is responsible for the resignation of the UK ambassador to the United States, by refusing to make a statement to the effect that the ambassador had his full support and backing.

Leaving aside the fact that Boris Johnson may not have had this personal opinion of our man in Washington, surely it is the person who leaked confidential reports to the press who is responsible for the whole sorry mess?

I trust that the person or persons reaponsible will be brought to book and dealt with in the harshest possible way through the criminal jistice system. This amounted to a deliberate attack on the UK with an attempt to sour relations with the US and clearly related to an attempt to derail Brexit. The suspect(s) will undoubtably be found to be firmly in favour of the UK remaining in the EU. Unfortunately that leaves a rather wide field to investigate.
