Lies are just a joke to Johnson 21:31 - Dec 6 with 1730 viewsNthsuffolkblue

His response to what is appropriate for politicians who lie during election campaigns?

They should "go on their knees through the chamber of the House of Commons scourging themselves with copies of their offending documents"

Poll: Should there be a second referendum?

Awful.

Just a shame that Corbyn didn't pick-up on that and make it a real issue, instead of going on about making MPs accountable for what promises they make during a campaign.

I don't know. Anything Corbyn said would have met with a response similar to "it's just bantz and you are a grumpy old man". His supporters would lap it up.

The sad thing is that honesty in politics does not seem to matter to those who support Johnson.

He is openly laughing in the very faces of the poor souls who are going to wave him through next week – and what a terrible price they, we, are going to pay. Fancy voting for someone who detests you that much.

The Working Class Tory has reached peak ultimus.

Created by lies, false belief and ignorance, they will soon have served their purpose as stepping stones to the self-absorbed greedy elitists and will be consumed and shat out of the right-wing machine that created them.

Not even a memory.

From the YouGov poll:

Who do you think came across as more trustworthy?

38% Boris Johnson, 48% Jeremy Corbyn, 14% Don’t know

Who do you think came across as more likeable?

55% Boris Johnson, 36% Jeremy Corbyn, 9% Don’t know

People see the lies but still find him more likeable. Truth does not matter to a significant proportion of the electorate. That is alarming.

Rather begs the question why major parties don’t pick leaders who are both likeable AND trustworthy.....

Does it?

Doesn't it just show popularity trumps trustworthiness every time?

Churchill said the best argument against democracy is to have a conversation with the average voter.

They are not mutually exclusive.

Albeit it is easier to be popular if you avoid telling people the unpalatable truths they don’t want to hear.

You forget that Johnson will somehow stop lying once he is elected. Or so the slow witted delude themselves.

The nurses, the police and hospitals will appear. The 2 years spent negotiating with the US over selling off the NHS, that will go.

The quietly forgotten social care package will re-appear. Schools will be built by the dozen as will social housing - only that will be in the millions.

Prisons will be built, courts re-opened and both the judiciary and the probation service will once again be properly funded.

Just as brexit was going to happen March 29th, then April, then Oct 31st, and now,supposedly, Jan 31st.

Yep it will all happen .....if you are as thick as sh it and stupid enough to trust an habitual liar.

labelling johnson as a liar hasn't worked as a political tactic because most people think all politicians lie.

And so as the loose-bowelled pigeon of time swoops low over the unsuspecting tourist of destiny, and the flatulent skunk of fate wanders into the air-conditioning system of eternity, I notice it's the end of the show

It was a poor response from him. But a question for you SomethingBlue, which part of your educational path scarred you most and led to this tory bitterness. In particular, re them detesting you?

Precisely that is the problem in the country as many people think Johnson is telling lies as thinks Corbyn is telling lies.

Of course Corbyn does not lie, well maybe just not today.
"Do you watch the Queens speech Mr Crobyn, yes in the morning"

"i will stay neutral in a new EU referendum" How many times did you vote against the Eu Mr Corbyn?

It is strange that hardly anyone who knows Boris Johnson well has a good word to say for him - most notably his former boss at the Telegraph Max Hastings. It is also revealing that Johnson has refused to be interviewed by Andrew Neil, his former boss at the Spectator. It is hard to avoid the conclusion that he is a total charlatan.

No the problem is people belives Corbyn tells lies. Remember refusing to answer a question even though you have an answer in your head is also a lie.

There are simple answers to those things that have been explained a hundred times.

Why it just doesn't sink in is anyone's guess.

Who gives a feck about the Queen's speech? If that's the best you can come up with then it's a no brainer.

Well it looks like a duck, it sounds like a duck. Nope, dunno what it is.
