Re: I smelled a rat, and I found a rat

Courtesy of a poster on a different forum: "The will of the people is the will of the government and vice versa. The modern structure of the German State is a higher form of democracy in which, by virtue of the people’s mandate, the government is exercised authoritatively while there is no poss...

Re: I smelled a rat, and I found a rat

So, prorogation it is. Give control back to our parliament by, er, suspending it at a critical time.

The hypocrisy burns. I wonder if the Queen swears? If so, the air must be blue around her.

Re: I smelled a rat, and I found a rat

Johnson et al made the 350M claim knowing it to be untrue. That much is crystal clear, and the court case is irrelevant as all the court really did was disqualify itself from being able to rule on the legal claim that had been made.

Re: I smelled a rat, and I found a rat

One thing that has clearly changed is the Brexit which was promised......one where very little would change. Many people voted for Brexit believing there would not be any job losses, businesses would be able to carry on importing and exporting with the EU and the rest of the world without any extra...

Re: I smelled a rat, and I found a rat

The 350M a week we 'send' to the EU was a lie. Not quite according to high court judges. Next. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/boris-johnson-court-latest-brexit-lies-high-court-end-tory-leadership-contest-a8985876.html "Politicians making false statements is not new" is you...

Re: I smelled a rat, and I found a rat

What has changed since the “advisory “ (cough cough) referendum? The Brexiteers' lies have been exposed and the truth about the actual nature of Brexit has become clearer, especially hard Brexit. Is it possible to elaborate? The 350M a week we 'send' to the EU was a lie. Here's just one example of ...

Re: I smelled a rat, and I found a rat

Still nothing showing he actually said it. We will have to agree to disagree. Except it's a BBC report of a BBC interview. What counts as evidence in your world? Have you gone full Trump and into "fake news!" territory every time you're faced with an inconvenient report? Sad! Okay I agree...

Re: Rugby World Cup on TV

Ah, we can get that through the FilmOn internet service. They claim to be legal, and that's good enough for us ;)

Re: I smelled a rat, and I found a rat

Are you sure your not just making things up? Why don’t you just put the link to the interview? I've been copy/pasting from reliable sources, not 'making things up'. What makes you think it was recorded anyway, or do you only accept evidence on video? (Be careful how you answer that, it might bite y...

Re: I smelled a rat, and I found a rat

The guardian says “guarantee “ but he has never said it and he would be stupid to do so. Of course I know it’s from the 1st of November. The guardian will have took their “quote “ from the below interview link. Be careful with these media stories. https://news.sky.com/video/boris-johnson-interview-...
