Hi Steve,

An extract from Boris Johnson writing in The Telegraph in February 2011:

"When a regime has been in power too long, when it has fatally exhausted the patience of the people, and when oblivion finally beckons - I am afraid that across the world you can rely on the leaders of that regime to act solely in the interests of self-preservation, and not in the interests of the electorate."

We've been witnessing his words in action for months 😔

Kind regards, 

Kim

Typical behaviour of a narcissist.

He will need to be physically dragged kicking and screaming from No 10.

He’s just a figure head, do you for one minute think he makes all the decisions or is even given accurate information?


just look at the confusion and misinformation surrounding COVID, not so funny ‘Whitty’ and his mates were the ones spinning the yarns, not Boris. Robotic ‘Treseme’ was far worse.


The system rolls on whoever is at the helm. Proportional rep is what is needed and that will never be allowed to happen, along with longer terms in office so those in charge have the chance to turn things around with all those (false) promises they make

PR is just as bad.

PR in Ireland resulted in 2 main parties merging …… 

Result?

The same dirty rotten filthy pigs with their snouts stuck in the trough feeding of the backs of the people. Politics is aptly named… poly meaning ‘many’ & ticks meaning ‘blood sucking parasites’.


Don be fooled that that idiot Keir Stamer would be any better, he sounds like a bloody car with a speech impediment.

Whether you call BoJo a "figure head" (which he is, albeit a dangerous one), or a "leader" (which he is not), whoever is our Prime Minister must lead by example, and not just to the clowns he calls his Cabinet, but to the whole nation.  In June last year, the High Court found Michael Gove guilty of breaking the law with regard to Covid contracts, but when questioned about it by a Sky News presenter, his response was, "But I didn't break the Ministerial Code".  How can anyone believe that is mitigation for breaking the laws that their own Government enacted?  But then, with a boss like BoJo, is it little wonder?  When Matt Hancock was the Health Minister and broke the law, BoJo backed him until external pressure and public opinion made it impossible for him to continue doing so.

How many times did BoJo speak from the despatch box at PMQs and say, "There were no parties", followed weeks later by, "I was told there were no parties", then, "There were a couple of gatherings, but I didn't attend them", and eventually, "Well, I attended a couple of things, but they weren't parties, I thought they were work gatherings" and on, and on, and on.  He is a liar; he was a proven liar even before he entered politics; he's been sacked - twice! - for lying; and even when caught out, repeatedly, he will say anything rather than take responsibility and make an unequivocal apology.  During my career, the corporations I worked for all had something in the company rule book that made "bringing the company into disrepute" a serious disciplinary matter.  What is the point of our country's laws if the law-makers can break them with impunity?  

Whatever our individual politics, any hope we have for a caring, compassionate society is forlorn while the examples set are by a Prime Minister who is a liar and a cheat.
