I thought that The Daily Mail was pro-Johnson. I also thought that they were pro-letting bodies pile up too, though…
I suspect the Mail’s true allegiance is to circ numbers.
Pro-Tory is more like it. Perhaps the Viscount Rothermere has his eye on Sunak or Gove.
You know he fucked up when he said something so ridiculous, the Daily Fail published it and the paper’s fans thought it was complete hogwash.
Thanks for corroborating the Mail’s story with the BBC and ITV. I spend too much time convincing friends and family that the Mail, Star, and Sun alone are not valid sources.
Basically the main story in UK news at the moment is that possibly Boris Johnson lied about something. (It’s a combination of this story, and questions about who paid for renovating his official residence).
I mean, the day had a Y in it, so I’m not sure how Boris lying has suddenly become news.
As other have said, it seems like the Mail has had enough of him, it would be interesting to know why. Dominic Cummins seems to have some hand in this.
*edited to add, the Torys still have a 10% lead in a poll as of yesterday, but I guess those people knew who they were voting for.
They either own significant real estate or think they will and/or really hate central, Southern, and Eastern Europeans.
They also hate other people but are a bit less comfortable admitting that out loud. They let their leaders do the talking for them there.
England still has their tRump. Now how much longer are they stuck with this dingdong?
What makes you think they don’t approve?
Judging by the British public, forever.
They are pro-Farage, or whoever the polite fascist of the day is.
Because of how the elections work here, Labour usually need to be ahead by a few percent to have any chance of winning.
Came here literally just to post this. Well played.
Isn’t this sort of thing pretty much exactly why the French executed their aristos a couple of centuries ago? It seems like an idea that’s due for a revival…
My take as well. British intra-party politics in general are notorious for vicious back-stabbing. More so for the Tories, whose attitude toward other humans (including Tory rivals) can be summed up in statements such as … well… “let the bodies pile high in the thousands”.
It sounds more death-metal than hip-hop, and he’d need a mullet (a real one) to carry it off.
How’s that Brexit thing working out for you?
Leave the vile BoJo alone. His number of gratuitously dead doesn’t match our Donnie’s number of ~300,000. And there was a feeble rationale for BoJo’s disregard for human lives. Our Donnie thought doing anything would requiring the existence of a crisis which would necessarily make him look bad and, as always, nothing is more important to him than that he feels good about himself.
