Our likely new Prime Minister.

Nice try footers but if you were a football team I’d be singing “can we play you every week”

There are some hypocrites on TWTD who attack Boris for associating with racists and Nazis yet have continually defended and/or excused the dear leader cosying up to anti-Semites, holocaust deniers and blood libellers. Then there are those of us who are more consistent on the matter and far less tribal.

Apparently he is being advised by Steve Bannon. So if he wants to appeal to a bigoted section of society then he is being extremely well advised.

He really shouldn't be a politician. Certainly not a frontline politician. He is ill suited to the job.

He should stick to writing interesting but is often flawed articles for the likes of the Telegraph or the Spectator. That is his niche.

I'd say that is spot on.

The Bannon stuff is more concerning because if he can get through the MP selection process, and at present he doesn't have enough support to do so, then he is a clear favourite to win the members vote.

The fact that he will take advice from Bannon should bar him from ever getting anywhere near the levers of power.

There is zero chance of me voting for Boris. Especially as he is being advised by Steve Bannon.

FWIW I think Herbie’s language is far too emotive. I dint see you dishonouring the memory of JO Cox.

I disagree with you. I thought he was acting like a Bully. But it’s about different interpretations and opinions.

I agree. Johnson’s stock in London has fallen due to his Brexit stance but there is no denying that at the time he was able to reach out to people who normally vote Labour.

That’s why I think Johnson as leader will be such a backwards move as he is yesterday’s man.

Not st all. My brother in law suffers from PSTD after serving over twenty years and seeing action in several war zones. He had a similar shouting match with my wife’s sister and two squad cars were sent after the neighbours phoned it in.

They live in Shettleston. An area of Glasgow which has one of the lowest life expectancy rates in the UK.

You can’t win in London without the support of people who normally vote labour. To do that twice suggests the op is correct.

That would work if only one policeman turned up on a bicycle rather than several in two cars.

The choice between Johnson and Corbyn at the next election will be a choice between what flavour of racism people are prepared to tolerate.

Do they vote for the incompetent racist or the racist incompetent?

“Hello. Is that police? I just wanted to report a disturbance at my neighbours’ flat. Yes, yes a lot of shouting and banging going on. I’m deeply concerned. Please send out two police cars”

I’d ask her to leave but wouldn’t manhandle her. If she wouldn’t move then ask one of the ladies to deal with her.

A bloke would be asked once and if that didn’t then reasonable force would be used.

And if he has any balls he should say yes. And if he doesn’t resign he should be sacked.

One last comment on the man/woman differences. A few years ago John Prescott punched a bloke for egging him. Most people said well done. There was no hand wringing at the time and I think Blair said it was “John being John”.

There would have quite rightly been a massive uproar if the egger was a woman rather than a burley bloke and Prescott punches her.

There is a different way that we treat men and women. People can deny this but it’s true.

Nobody was calling for DA to be sacked for drinking a mojito the tube. Mark Fields should be sacked for his assault on the woman. Big difference.

I don’t have any working to show. I’ve told you it’s how I was brought up. I accept that isn’t the norm these days. I’m not forcing my opinion on anyone else although i have always insisted, if I’m unable to give them a lift, that my teenage son walk his girlfriend home on a journey through alleys and a small wood, whilst accepting he will walk the return journey on his own. Vice versa with my daughters and their boyfriends.

That may be an old fashioned outlook but make no apologies.

If a bloke gatecrashed a party I was attending then I’d chuck him out. If it was a woman I would not.

I understand that is an old fashioned way of looking at things but I was brought up to open doors for women and give up seats on the bus/tube etc.

Im a product of an upbringing from a different age and Im not going to change.
