Corbyn is on record saying that "Zionist (meaning jews) don't get British sense of humour" - interesting considering sandgrounder avatar.

Corbyn kept bumping into antisemites, called them friends, wrote of letters of support to antisemites, worked to antisemtic torturers . the list is long. Boris never did any of these things.

anyway - Corbyn is now history. thankfully.

You called?

WTF are you on about now?

You realise that great swathes of the world don't grasp British humour, don't you?

That isn't what Zionist means though, is it? It is certainly not a synonym for Jews.

If you are going to try and throw spurious accusations out, maybe at least learn what the words you are using to make the accusation mean.

So, what's your real reason for voting for Bozza, as this cognitive dissonance isn't cutting it.
Boris is no racist. He is a classic liberal, the letterbox faces comment was made in a column supporting the right to wear the Burka! The piccaninny smiles comment was made in a column against colonialism and white savior complex!

Good to see the British people are also daft enough to fall for the Trump playbook.
Yeah, basically this. Everyone has seen what happened there yet they make the same choices. It's scary. And I don't think it's particular to the British.
It's a pattern that keeps repeating and that is the reason so many people outside UK were interested.
An interesting article here

You are beyond help. Even he has belatedly apologized for the articles, your attempted defense of him does you no credit.

Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

I wonder if in some parallel universe Micheal Gove didn't stab Boris Johnson in the back and he won that leadership contest, saving us from the hopeless Theresa May, that terrible election in 2017, and the subsequent parliament it produced.

Just imagine if Boris Johnson had won the original leadership contest, and wouldn't have triggered Article 50 too early. And then would have won this majority in 2017 and in doing so entered negotiations with the EU with a coherent plan, a stronger hand and supportive Parliament.

For two and half years we've been let down by a rotten Parliament that has ignored the will of the people and has done their upmost to sabotage Brexit. The country has become a laughing stock in the process. It is no coincidence that every single MP who switched party over Brexit has lost their seat.

That's the great tragedy. We're left with what ifs and just imagines. We were truly let down by our elected representatives. I fear the damage is already done and that there is little hope for a successful outcome to Brexit. I'll pray that pragmatism takes a hold of both sides and Boris will succeed with an orderly Brexit that's beneficial for both sides.
