  1. Boris is interested in Boris. If he has the slightest competence at all it's in getting voters to believe something different. In fairness as alluded to above by msc he's hardly alone in that. Farage is the same with but with less of the faux charm. Ditto Rees-Bogg, Ditto Gove. Cameron's another, he called the referendum in an attempt to get his own dissident back-benchers in line, it was nothing to do with the good of the country. From his perspective he made a fatal error. You may be on either side of the brexit argument, but don't deceive yourself it was ever called on behalf of the populace, it was political maneuvering. These guys cough, we catch a cold.
  2. Short answer. Yes. It's politics isn't it? The canny out there will suspect that Boris doesn't give a flying fuck about burka's one way or the other (and he means niqab anyway). He is pandering to his perceived base at the cost of a very few votes he likely wouldn't have got in the first place. Sadly he is not nearly as daft as he acts, and it is an act.

    Wondered about that since I never get my arse in gear for the main events. I suspect my antennae on such things aren't as in tune as others. Went on the basis that if I knew them with my lack of research they'd probably qualify. Time will tell. Anyway since I picked them they are now immortal, one does what one can.

    The lightweight. I've been wrecked a lot more than that. To be fair that may be partly why I never invented much.

    So .. What Do You Watch On TV?

    The BBC has lost the plot with this balance idiocy. Giving any time at all to climate change deniers like Lawson with vested interests is barking mad and dangerous beyond belief. The uninitiated will assume there is a reasonable counterpoint when there isn't. Capitalist short termism run riot.

    Celebrity Auctioneers

    Not that I watch it but I thought the antiques were supposed to be the artefacts they discover in peoples attics not the presenters.

    Anything that's pick from a list and doesn't involve any actual research... I'd have a crack.

    Well he was a dick. And then indeed wasn't.

    So .. What Do You Watch On TV?

    Could be used as leverage on your Corrie board though surely Deathers? "Look..they've done it for Eastenders!" ISTR having a look when somebody linked it and getting older stuff revisited was 'your thing'. Always assuming you aren't currently banned for repeat threads about repeats that is ;).

    Conspiracy Theories

    Vote. *You* might feel better. Vote even if you don't feel better, I will and so will others that detest the global commercialization and growing financial disparity. So you did something good. If you want things to improve for you personally and indeed for anyone else who feels the same way, you have but one option. Vote. It's not a panacea, many feel they were sold out by Blair or would have been by Hilary, but at the danger of repetition, it's either that or pick up a gun and start a revolution, which I suppose, after a fashion worked in France a while ago. As LFN says, vote or stfu. Since you denigrate the only thing that enables your voice to be heard don't expect anyone to listen to your (political) views on this or any other forum, it's just so much hot air.
