    The End of Boris

    Wow. It seems to me that before conducting business with anyone in this country, you first need to ask them, "What rules do you play by?" If they say, "I'm a Johnson supporter", you can then determine that you're dealing with someone without any integrity, honesty, decency, or concern for...

    The End of Boris

    Are you able to tell us which university's critical thinking module teaches this "If it's a meme image, it's true" approach to reasoning which you ascribe to. Can you spot any flaws in that approach? If "woke" is bad, being "dozy" to these fallacies is good?

    The Post-Brexit Thread

    They knew what they voted for... They're not stupid... They voted in the top Brexiteers to implement it, and yet... :cry: Square that circle.

    That's very noble and balanced of you. Out of curiosity, on what subject do you disagree politically with the "hardline supporter of Brexit" who served as Boris Johnson's campaign manager in Scotland? :rolleyes:

    The End of Boris

    Such an odd approach to life and evidence. So we just need to find a video of someone saying, "I'm anti-woke and I'm a massive *******" and you'll quietly accept that, because you're also anti-woke, you're also a massive *******? Ponder on that, and then ponder on why you're having to employ...

    The Post-Brexit Thread

    Wow. We all said Brexit couldn't do all the things they were promising it would, and that in order to do some, it would necessarily fail to do others. Now we have the PM saying... "Yes I agreed [a deal that fails on many fronts], but I agreed on the basis that it [did half the things I said...

    The End of Boris

    Again, this is nothing new. Offered the chance to take on board new information and expert analysis, you instead chose to remain ignorant of it. Nothing you have to say contradicts the arguments put forward about how it is only ignorant people who hold the views you're seeking to defend. We...

    The End of Boris

    The disconnect here is because you're incapable of being objective in your assessment though, and have demonstrated it time and time again. The funniest one I remember was when you said this:- ...About this footage....

    Was technology their solution? Or was it a quick call to Prime Minister Johnson?

    The End of Boris

    You're a funny guy. Have you got any more evidence than, "I really really want it to be true so therefore it is"? Which bit of the media outlet (headed by a former Conservative councillor, regulated by a Conservative Peer, chaired by a Conservative Party donor, and whose CEO is the partner of...

    You seem to miss the point quite consistently. It's not hypocritical for wealthy people to have concern for people less well off. You seem not to understand some or all of the words you're using.

    The Post-Brexit Thread

    The mental gymnastics needed to justify Brexit seem to have left some Brexiteers not knowing which way's up. How is this anyone's fault but Conor and his fellow Brexiteers? I know they'll try to shirk everything, but it never ceases to amaze. They managed to impose that on internal UK...

    The End of Boris

    Johnson has just signed treaties restricting our sovereign freedoms and obligating us to act in the interests of foreign countries. And you're saying that's a good thing now? 2016: "It's not because I'm a racist, It's because Sovereignty!" 2022: "Never really cared about Sovereignty"

    The Post-Brexit Thread

    I agree that that mentality was widespread amongst Brexit voters. Let's remind ourselves of how that's panning out... :rolleyes: It's looking like a fig leaf. I suspect everyone's come to terms with the fact the demographic that supports Brexit is the same demographic that gets through...

    Why would the Daily Mail say that? Taking all of the things you mentioned - the midterm blues etc - into account, the most pro-Johnson rag out there still assessed those results to be disastrous. I'm not saying there will be a perfect reflection of them in the next GE. It's just funny to see...

    UK Government Performance 2019-2024

    It's always funny to see exactly what the Mail tells its readership to believe trotted out verbatim. Also, I'd forgotten that having gone from "Don't they know there's a war on?" to 15 front pages in a row about "Beergate", they've had to quickly scrabble back to, "Who cares?" Again, by the...

    I have no doubt there's a small degree of truth to what you say but I think it's vanishingly small, and a harmful distraction to the debate. As others have said, fresh produce doesn't keep and the logistics make it difficult. Who's to say that the people coming to your food bank didn't...

    Completely agree with this. The financial crisis and the harm wrecked by our bankers isn't to be underestimated. It pushed swathes of voters to the extremes and let the populist conmen take hold. Sadly I think your forecast is correct. A massive chunk of the electorate are scum and itching to...

    I heard the electrician. He hadn't eaten anything that day, and expected not to eat anything for the rest of the day. He spoke about walking the streets looking for money on the ground. He couldn't afford food for his partner and their baby. He sounded very clearly at his wits end. Yes, he...
